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

Puglia (or Apulia), is a gastronomic honey pot. Located on the South East or ‘heel’ of Italy, Puglia provides much of Italy’s fresh produce. 70% of Italy’s fish, olive oil and pasta all comes from this region, which is enough of an excuse alone to take a holiday rental in Puglia! Puglia is a dramatic land of natural beauty too, with stunning views offered from the majority of Puglia's holiday villas.

lovely place set in beautiful surroundings

5 of 5
In Trulli-land you will find no beter place to stay : the house is spacious, nicely decorated, the kitchen well equipped. You can sit outside and dine, near the kitchen or near the BBQ or somewhere else in the big garden. Beautiful swimmingpool with enough shade when it's too hot.

Attractive venue with superb views

5 of 5
Overall a fantastic holiday. The accommodation ticked all the boxes for us, communication was perfect from booking to our arrival. I can't imagine wanting to stay anywhere else should we visit Puglia again. The local farm shop is a dream for breakfast yogurt and local cheese, not forgetting the local wine too! Very happy memories, thank you.
