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.

Absolutely fantastic

5 of 5
We travelled as 2 families and the trullo and lamia were perfectly set-up to cater for us all. Everything was really well maintained and functional. The beds were confortable and the whole property was spotless. We loved the chill out lounge room in the lamia, which is where we would all start and finish our days. The master bathroom in the lamia was fabulous. I wish I could have one that beautiful at home. The pool was huge and the gardens well kept. We used both the outdoor eating areas on several occasions during our stay. Ina and Sandro could not have been more helpful. It was like having a consierge service on tap. Nothing was too much bother. They booked us restaurants and masseurs and gave us advice about doctors and hospitals when I got an ear infection. The surrounding countryside is very pretty, but you are only 30 minutes away from the coast. We have stayed in Puglia several times and this has been my favourite property. We can't wait to go back!
