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.

Nice villa/apprtment on the edge of a nice little town

5 of 5
It's a good sized, well designed apartment. Good to have a separate kitchen rather than the open-plan kitchen/living area that you get in so many holiday lets. The historic centre of Otranto is really nice (about 10 minutes walk away) - lots of restaurants to choose from (but it helps if you like seafood). While we were there, there was a "Sounds & Tastes Festival" (1st to 4th of June) which we enjoyed - heartily recommend that. Long sandy beaches north of Otranto (Alimini for one) and, to the south, Porto Badisco is a good spot for snorkelling.

Simply wonderful!

5 of 5
This was our first trip to Salento and did not really know what to expect. Our expectations were not just met but exceeded in every way. Eligio was an amazing, warm and generous host and nothing was too much trouble. The villa was immaculately clean, well appointed and set in an olive grove overlooking the sea. The atmosphere was tranquil and relaxing, a perfect setting to unwind from our busy lives. The nearest small town of Capilungo was very quiet but scenery quite captivating. Our favourite beach was between San Giovanni and Torre Mozza, a stretch of perfect golden sand and clear blue sea with few people there, only 20 minutes drive away and far better than the well known 'Maldives' beach. We drove to Racale most evenings to eat in a few of the wonderful local restaurants and enjoyed a weekend of festivities. We also visited the beautiful town of Lecce which was unmissable for the amazing architecture and cobbled streets. If you are looking for quiet stunning beaches, a warm welcome, fantastic food and an authentic Italian experience then this is the place to go! Thank you Eligio
