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

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.

We are a family of 4, our children are 5 and 9. Immaculately clean when we arrived, loved the welcome pack Susan had left us. She also met us personally and was always available when we stayed there. The trullo is more spacious than you see from the pictures. Pretty details everywhere and the bedrooms are amazing. The trullo was always cool inside even when it was hot outside, they are a great design. Great the pool is right in front of patio area, we could watch the girls while we enjoyed a glass of wine on the patio. As the director of a company I was delighted the wifi worked so well as at times I did have to work. We loved being close to Martina Franca, few minutes drive and you are there. This was our favourite town in the area (however they are all amazing) and the music festival was an experience we will not forget. Susan organised the tickets for us. She also organised someone to cook at the trullo for us. We were still eating the food the next day! We have already booked to return in 2017, great property.

The booking process and instructions on how to get there were amazingly detailed and we managed to find the property late at night without any problems. There was a welcoming gift of local biscuits and wine when we arrived and the owners - Sandro and Ina - were on hand to help with any problems and to provide local information. Sadly it was a little too cold in October to use the pool but everything else was perfect. We thoroughly recommend it as a place to stay.
