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 welcome from the host Carmelo is hardly better. I found it very attentive that Carmelo had already deposited water and milk in the refrigerator and a well-filled fruit basket beside self-baked pastries stood on the table. The landlord was always available for advice and action. The Trulli is perfect for three people with a large double room and a small single room. The accommodation was very clean and comfortable. Also in the bathroom everything was great. Even a fairly fast WiFi is available. The kitchen is small, but it is everything you need and everything works. Our sunny breakfast we usually took at a smaller stone table in front of the house. The large stone table under the side pergola is great when the sun gets too hot. The pool was very clean and refreshing and is hardly visible from the outside. The Trulli is very quiet on a hill with a beautiful view on flowering meadows. Nevertheless you are quite fast in Martina Franca. As a starting point for excursions the location is very good. We were in Matera, Castel del Monte, Locorotondo, Alberobello, Egnazia, Polignano a Mare ..... I would like to expressly thank our landlord Carmelo. We had the feeling from the first moment to be welcome. Thank you!
