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

The coastal village of Tricase is situated within the Salento area of the Puglia province, and is one of the most delightful holiday spots in the south-east corner of Italy. It is believed that the name ‘Tricase’ originates from the three houses that used to dominate its centre and provide protection from Saracen raids back in the 10th century. Modern-day Tricase is laid-back, friendly and a popular destination for a relaxing break on the shores of the Adriatic coast.

Things to do in Tricase, Italy

A leisurely stroll is always a popular activity in Tricase, whether it is first thing in the morning to help ease yourself into the day, or late in the evening to help burn off the extra calories after you have dined at one of the number of great restaurants in the town centre. The best destinations for walks such as these are the network of coastal paths that run alongside the coastline of the Adriatic Sea.

There are no beaches in Tricase, but swimming and snorkelling can be enjoyed down on the sea front, with warm waters to be enjoyed throughout the majority of spring and summer. Another water-related option is to hire a small fishing boat and enjoy a self-guided tour of the rocky coast.

Tricase has two main sights of interest, namely the Quercia-Vallonea – an oak tree that dates back to the 13th century and is believed to be one of the oldest oaks in the whole of Italy, and Tricase Castle – a huge old building that dominates the centre of town. The historic centre also has a series of churches and other monuments of varying ages from the last few centuries, as well as a decent set of amenities for holidaymakers to take advantage of.

Places to visit on holiday in Tricase, Italy

Tricase can be used as a base for visiting other towns and villages in the province of Lecce, with Lecce itself under an hour away by car. If you would rather stay out of the big cities and keep to smaller, lesser-visited destinations, consider a visit to the Baroque town of Nardo (57km), which has a number of interesting historical sights dotted around the attractive square known as Piazza Salandra.

Weather in Tricase, Italy

Tricase experiences a typical Mediterranean climate, with the hottest temperatures to be found in the height of summer, and often exceeding the 30C mark. The entire period between May and October is a great time for a holiday in Tricase, and even autumn and winter temperatures are mild in this part of Italy.

Flights to Tricase, Italy

Although Lecce has an airport, it does not receive international flights from the UK. This means that the best bet for getting to Tricase from Britain is to fly to Brindisi Airport (BDS), 88km to the north. Take care when searching for flights to Brindisi, as the airport can also be listed as Papola Casale Airport or Aeroporto del Salento.

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.

Fantastic family holiday - we will be returning!

5 of 5
Our family of 5 adults spent a fantastic five days in april in villa Edda. This charming rural house conversion has been completed to a very high standard – combining original features with top quality accommodation. This villa is superbly equipped – both inside and out. We made full use of the large infinity pool just opened, tennis court, hammocks, sun loungers and pizza oven. The kitchen has absolutely everything needed to make full use of the fabulous local ingredients - a supermarket within a few minutes drive provided us everything we needed to try out some of the tempting recipes we found. The bedrooms are light, spacious and airy –with top quality beds and linen. Should you wish to stay in there are DVDs, PS4, games for all ages, a comprehensive library of books, a workstation with a laptop – the owners have thought of everything! If you can be tempted to leave the villa there are many sights to see within a short drive – the nearby town of Galatina was a favourite with the old town with a beautiful square, great coffee and ice cream; to definitely try pasticciotto at Ascalone and coffee with almond milk . Gallipoli and the beach are also within an easy drive. We left with some lovely memories – determined to return for a longer holiday! Highlights were home-made pizzas, fabulous local food and wine, the bright days and warm and the lovely surroundings of this beautiful villa. Something for all the family with the reassurance of support from the owner and neighbours if needed – perfect!
