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.

Ce séjour avec notre famille de 2 adulte et 3 enfants , dans la villa Faraone été parfaite. L'accueil et la sympathie de Carmelo est extraordinaire et nous le remercions encore d'être à nos petits soins. La maison est luxueuse avec 2 trulli magnifiques , l'extérieur est grandiose avec une magnifique piscine, un coin pour cuisinier dehors et barbecue et un environnement entouré d'Olivier. Le calme et la tranquillité est au rendez- vous. De plus son emplacement a 5 min des commodités de Martina Franca ou Locorotondo est idéal. Franchement,je conseille cette location à tous. Merci encore à Carmelo et on espère revenir bien sur!

Fabulous week spent staying in this lovely Trullo

5 of 5
We had the most wonderful time staying in this immaculate trullo with fabulous views over the surrounding countryside. The trullo is beautifully laid out with everything you would wish for including a great pool for cooling off in. We used the recommendations provided for visiting local towns, and those a bit further away including Ostuni and Lecce, the caves, and also for eating out all of which were excellent. The food was absolutely delicious everywhere we went. We also visited Savelleti which I would highly recommend as it has a lovely beach and port. We would love to return to the area again soon and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this lovely Trullo for a lovely holiday in beautiful countryside.
