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

Located on the ‘inside of the heel’ of Italy, or in south west Puglia, the province of Taranto is a rural province boasting a magnificent sandy coastline on the Ionian Sea. The countryside is largely agricultural, dotted with beautiful castles, fortresses and stately villas. Taranto is known on the tourist map for two main reasons; the beaches and the exceptional food in Taranto which is among the best quality in Italy.

Things to do on holiday to Taranto, Italy

The Ionian coast of Taranto, Italy, is wonderfully unspoilt, with wild stretches of dunes, interrupted only by rock outcrops. The waters of the Ionian Sea are known as the “Seven Colours Sea”, due to the magnificent changing colours of the clean waters. The sands along the Taranto coast are impossibly soft, and the sheltered, clean beaches are perfect for family holidays with small children. Snorkelling is an enchanting activity in the Taranto area, as the Ionian Sea teems with marine life. There are plenty of spots along the Taranto coast for sailing, kite surfing and windsurfing, as well as scuba diving and deep sea fishing.

The food in Taranto is quite exceptional. Seafood is a real speciality in Taranto, and there are a huge number of excellent seafood restaurants throughout the region, many of which are family run, traditional Italian eateries. There are a huge range of traditional dishes to try in Taranto, ingredients for which can be seen growing on the sun baked slopes of the southern hills, and are readily available from local weekly markets if you would like to try your hand at preparing traditional food in Taranto accommodation.

The property was exactly as described and was maintained to a very high standard and spotlessly clean. As we were at the Trulli for a month we visited many restaurants, some local others further afield, and found them all very good. It would be difficult to choose a favourite. We visited the Rendezvous, in Martina Franca, several times for breakfast and by the end of our vacation we felt like members of the family. There is plenty to see and do in the region, beautiful beaches, wonderful churches and museums, wine tasting and superb scenery. My husband and I could not praise Susan highly enough. She was a great hostess. Nothing was to much trouble for her. Any little problems were dealt with immediately and with a smile. As our Italian is very limited Susan kindly booked several restaurants on our behalf and organised for a local cook to prepare a typical evening meal for ourselves and friends. The meal was wonderful and I would recommend anyone staying at the Trulli to try this experience. There is a supermarket in nearby Martina Franca that has everything that you might need and there is also a very good weekly market. Although our weather was disappointing (it was April!) it did not spoil our time in Puglia and would recommend this area to friends and family. (Both friends and family joined us during our stay). We left Puglia feeling relaxed and looking forward to a return visit. We also feel that we have made a good friend in Susan.

We are a Dutch extended family of 3 generations, 12 people, 6 adults and 6 children, age 8, 6, 5 ,4, 3, and 1 year. We felt at home. The house was clean, toys for all the kids, good beds and soft towels. It was comfortable having two very complete kitchens to cook for a big family. We ate very often altogehter at "home". The first week the weather was not that good, so the pool was cold. The second week the sun came and the solar heating did her work well. We could all relax. A top priority was to have a safe place for all the young children, - the fence off lockable swimming pool area, with its non slip pool surround. Thanks Jenny for your good service. We would like to recommend Trulli Sulla Cortina to all our Dutch friends and relatives. Gonny Vos
