Until recently one of Italy’s best-kept travel secrets, Puglia is fast-becoming the destination of choice for the discerning traveller.
The region now features high in the rankings of National Geographic’s Best Places to Visit and has been described as among the “best-value travel destinations in the world” by The Lonely Planet Guide.
We create private, tailor made itineraries to your needs and specifications, built around your interests, in private and at your own pace.

The New York Post recently featured an article dedicated to what it called “Italy’s Magical Apulia Region” – a tribute to Puglia’s rich cultural heritage and charming towns.
Puglia has it all, whether you’re a fan of amazing sea views, quiet villages, historic castles and cathedrals, or just authenticity and fantastic food and wine.
We have hand-picked some of the most exclusive and luxurious properties this region can offer. Some are immersed among the ancient olive groves of the Itria valley and are only steps away from the crystal blue Adriatic sea of Savelletri. Alternatively, you can choose one of our recommended hotels located inside restored Palazzi or typical Trulli buildings.
Whatever your preference, the location of all our hotels makes them the perfect base from which to indulge your cultural leanings and explore the history of our beautiful region. Baroque architecture, caves, Neolithic sites and stunning traditional hilltop villages are all within easy reach.
Your holidays in Puglia can be tailored around your wishes, whether you want to explore cultural sights and sounds, relax on white sandy beaches or indulge yourself in the local wonderful food and wine.
If you want to discover a more authentic blend of Apulia, I recommend that you visit Gargano. This small peninsular near to Foggia offers incredible and pristine places like the national park or the overhanging villages of Vieste and Peschici.
You must visit Pizzomunno, the 25 metre monolith symbol of Vieste, Baia Campi, Cala Molinella, Capo Vieste and Pugnochiuso where you will discover sand and pebble beaches at the foot of hills full of Mediterranean vegetation.
Here the sea will take your breath away. Small bays hidden away and fishing villages where you can still find the antique fishing machines known as Trabucchi, that are protected as historical monuments. However, if you prefer to visit caves then I suggest you go to Castro Marina. This small area of Castro, in the municipality of Lecce, is more of the most beautiful and least know locations of Salento. There are many natural caves, like Romanelli, Azzurra and Palombara with the most famous being Zinzulusa that can only be reached from the sea by boat.
For this itinerary I have purposely included the historical quarters of Gravina, Otranto and Locorotondo. Incredible places that are still off the beaten track of mass tourism so take advantage while there is still time!!!!
