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.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      I would highly recommend this property. The owner could not be more accommodating and helpful, arranging everything from airport transfers from Brindisi to an evening at the opera in Bari to reservations at hole-in-the-wall restaurants throughout Puglia. Each and every day of my visit was better and richer because of the owner's sincerest desire to ensure that my visit was memorable. Having been a business traveler for years, the owner understands firsthand what superlative customer service means and intends to deliver the same. He manages the same in part because he himself is an inveterate explorer who spends an inordinate amount of time researching Puglia's treasures; on one occasion, I accompanied him to a "new" restaurant in Monopoli and enjoyed one of the finest meals of my life, made even more special because the chef ended up dining with us for nearly an hour (the owner has a clear knack of "connecting" with people). The property itself -- even in December -- was magnificently lush and uplifting when the sun was shining. In the Spring and Summer, I can easily imagine not wanting to leave the property at all. It was a truly peaceful place to read, relax and "get away from it all." One felt significantly farther than 8 km from Martina Franca. And on the rare occasion that I needed to be connected, I could be; the wifi connection and speed were astonishingly stable and fast. The house was surprisingly comfortable, even during chilly December. The wood stove kept the common areas surprisingly warm. The furnishings were more elegant than I had anticipated. Whereas I normally expect "functional but forgettable" furniture, the owner has chosen pieces that I could easily envisage in my own home. I have also found that many owners choose mattresses of questionable quality -- not here; I slept very well!!! The kitchen was very well-equipped, making meals at "home" more than manageable; in fact, weather permitting, I can easily envisage dining at home more than one might be accustomed on vacation due to the superb facilities. Location-wise, the property is truly at a crossroads. Martina Franca is just 15 minutes away and offers a full range of services and restaurants (hence my reference to "proximate" in the title). Much of Puglia can be reached within an hour. I spent nearly every day of my 9-day visit exploring the various towns of Puglia, often at the suggestion of the owner. I love this place and will definitely return.

This time we took our 6 year daughter with us. The weather was incredible, hot when we arrived so the first thing we all did was cool off in the pool. The Trullo is as lovely as before, having all the modern conveniences of home but with a few new additions to enhance the property. We went to the local Zoo Safari, Alberobello, Martina Franca and walks around the lanes accompanied by Lola and Rudi the 2 friendly dogs who live up the hill. Evenings were mostly spent on the terrace, enjoying a BBQ and soaking in the view which never fails to impress. On Saturday evening the fireworks in the distance were spectacular. Hopefully we will return next spring to witness the beauty of the flowers.
