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.

The countryside setting is peaceful and very restful, with amazing fruit trees in the garden, particularly the fig tree which was well used. The Trullo is beautifully appointed, with all linens supplied, and the kitchen well appointed. The owners even leant us a slow cooker! The owners are near by and nothing is too much trouble. There are great views from the roof to the surrounding towns. The pool is kept beautifully clean and cleaned throughout holiday. If you want a relaxing holiday in a lovely area, in a beautiful trullo then I would highly recommend this rental.

Easy access to either of the coasts and definitely far enough away from the crowds to have quiet time. The Trullo was in lovely condition with all basics provided which certainly helped with keeping shopping requirements light. Marcella was a great host and there was some local tourist information provided in the trullo which was useful planning day trips. We would certainly return - next time over the summer!
