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.

The trulli of Puglia are whitewashed cones build of stone, visible across the countryside.

Your own private botanical garden

5 of 5
What a fantastic location! The apartment was comfortable but we did not spend much time indoors as the garden was amazing with fantastic sea views from the terrace, views across to the mountains in Albania. It really was a piece of paradise, very secluded & relaxing. We were made to feel very welcome by Caterina & her husband, a lovely couple. We loved Castiglione, a hidden gem. The general area is like the Peak District on sea & obviously warmer - dry stone walls, masses of wild flower Meadow, very beautiful. Thank you Caterina.

One of nicest apartments we have stayed in in Europe

5 of 5
Loved the spacious, uncluttered clean lines and high ceilings of the apartment. Everything worked. Wish we had stayed longer than a week. The surrounding area was full of life in the evenings and the train station is only 15 mins walk away for excursions. Having a rental car would not have been a very good idea from a parking perspective.
