Make a holiday rental home or villa in Mottola, Italy your home away from home

Just a few kilometres from the ‘heel’ of Italy, the old town of Mottola lies within the Taranto province of Puglia, around 27km from Taranto itself. Mottola is known as the ‘Ionian Spy’ due to its strategic, lofty position, almost 400 metres above sea level - with panoramic views of the Taranto Gulf to be enjoyed from all around the town. Tourism is on the increase here, so get in while you can, and make sure you book your Mottola self-catering accommodation nice and early.

Things to do in Mottola, Italy

As previously mentioned Mottola has a hillside location, and some stunning and far-reaching views can be enjoyed from various vantage points around the town. A walking tour of the town centre is the best way of getting your bearings, and as you go you will find that a number of historic old buildings will quickly grab your attention. These include the 13th century cathedral, the 17th century Church of the Immaculate and the 16th century Chapel of St Mary of Constantinople.

Agriculture and food production are the mainstays of the local economy, and sampling the local produce will likely be a big part of your holiday in Mottola. The main focal and meeting point of the old town (known as ‘La Schiavonia’) is the Piazza XX Septembre. And around here you will find a number of cafes, food shops, small restaurants and other food-related businesses, providing you with ample opportunity to enjoy the traditional favourites and purchase fresh ingredients to cook with when you return to your Mottola holiday villa.

The area surrounding Mottola has been declared a natural and archaeological park due to its Byzantine settlements, and makes for some great walking and hiking under the warm summer sun.

Places to visit on holiday in Mottola, Italy

The Taranto province is dotted with traditional old villages that will take you off the beaten tourist track, and the best way of finding these is to rent a car and head out for a spot of exploring. More tourist-orientated attractions and facilities can be found in the attractive old town of Martina Franca (31km) and the city of Taranto (27km), the capital of the province.

Weather in Mottola, Italy

Mottola receives a typical Mediterranean climate. The period between May and October is the most pleasant in which to visit this part of Italy, as daily peak temperatures average in the mid-twenties, and above 30C is a regular occurrence. Outside of these months’ rainfall increases but temperatures remain mild.

Flights to Mottola, Italy

A flight to Brindisi Airport (BDS) is the best option for getting to your Mottola accommodation from the UK. Ryanair fly to this destination from London Stansted, and the airport is 76km from Mottola. Bari Airport (BRI) is also a similar distance away, and receives seasonal flights from British Airways, departing from London Gatwick during peak season only.

Absolutely stunning, luxurious, peaceful villa

4 of 5
We LOVED the villa, we had the good fortune to meet Anthony and have him around for a few days so he was available with answers to all our questions! He is a wonderful host, extremely helpful but unobtrusive. The villa is blissfully peaceful with the most stunning views. The pool is the perfect size, depth and temperature. The villa was really well equipped - nothing missing, there was even a second fridge for all the beer and wine! There is AC in the living room and one of the bedrooms but we only used it in the living room (even though there was a 40 degree heatwave while we were there). We have only one slightly negative comment which is that the third bedroom (with the en-suite) is completely separate from the villa. This was fine for us as we were with our 2 kids (7 & 11) and our sister and brother in law who took the 'outside' room. It was also extremely hot in their room which wasn't ideal in the heatwave! But within 24 hours Anthony produced an additional fan! You do need a car which was fine for us as we love to be off the beaten track and the local shops/restaurants are within a five minute drive. You don't get such tranquility without being a bit more inaccessible! Anthony recommended some places for us to go and we did go out and about (as we were with kids) but if you want to just chill for a week it's perfect for that too. We were there for two weeks and honestly could have moved in for six months!

Stunning villa

5 of 5
Relaxing 2 weeks at this stunning villa. Pool, outside area and outlook exceeded all expectations. Wonderful situ, with great sightseeing and restaurants close by as well as offroad cycling right behind property (aqueduct trail). The Quail family July/August 2017
