What Oliver loves…
- This casa benefits from lots of outdoor space, including a huge terrace and an inviting swimming pool
- The interiors are beautifully modern and stylish throughout
- Situated just a walk away from the coast, this is the perfect holiday destination for sea-lovers
- Filled with historical sites, restaurants and bars, Lecce and Gallipoli are two major towns within driving distance
Situated just a short distance away from the Adriatic coastline, this lovely home is perfect for those looking for a getaway near the sea. Stunning inside and out, the villa boasts its own private pool and spacious outdoor terrace – ideal for soaking up the sun. With a kitchen large enough to fit the whole party in, you’ll make memories with family and friends that will last forever.
The home has a very communal feel to it. Visitors can spread out in the vast living space, as there are enough seats for everyone to sit comfortably and chat around the table. Outside, guests can eat meals together al fresco on the terraced dining area or sit on the long cosy sofa that faces the swimming pool. Nothing beats drinking a cool glass of wine in the warm Italian sun. The large, inviting pool has a shallow section that’s perfect for sunbeds, so you can lie in the water and cool yourself off on a hot day.
This vibrant villa has a gorgeous rocky exterior, giving it a rustic character that perfectly compliments its contemporary interior. Stylish décor and modern furnishings create a clean, fresh look while maintaining a comfortable and homely feel. Filled with quality appliances, the kitchen has everything you need to cook up something tasty.
If you prefer eating out, restaurants are dotted all along the coast within a short drive or head to the nearby village for a greater choice. This region is filled with olive groves so typical of Salento and this area also used to specialise in sea-salt; there’s a lovely walk to the sea following the path that workers used to use.
This part of the coastline is stunning with rocky ledges and picture-perfect coves leading to crystal-clear water, ideal for snorkelling and swimming. Look out for boat trips from marinas along the coast giving tours of the stunning coves that are dotted along this coastline. For a change of scene, head west towards the Ionian coast where you will find long stretches of sandy beaches such as Marina di Pescoluse, only half an hour away and known to be the Maldives of Italy. Only in Puglia can you swim in the Adriatic and Ionian on the same summery afternoon; southern Puglia really is a special place.

Villa Santa Maura is set only a short distance away from the Adriatic coast in southern Puglia and only 2km from a village with shops and restaurants.
Swim from the rocky shores nearby and be amazed by the clarity of the turquoise waters, ideal for snorkelling. Along the coast you can discover idyllic coves and pretty lidos. Look out for boat trips that will take you to visit some of the amazing grottos dotted along this part of Puglia’s coastline.
There are also some longer stretches of sand you can drive to such as Marina di Pescoluse, also known as the ‘Maldives of Italy’ with its glorious sand and clear waters or Baia Verde, just south of Gallipoli, also on the Ionian coast. The beaches just north of the charming town of Otranto are also beautiful such Baia dei Turchi and Spiaggia degli Alimini, both around an hour away.
Watch the boats come in and out of the harbour at Santa Maria di Leuca at the southern tip of Puglia or visit one of the magical hilltop villages such as Specchia, one of Italy’s most beautiful places. This region is filled with olive groves so typical of the Salento region and the surrounding landscapes will take your breath away.
Other great places to visit include the historic city of Lecce with its great restaurants and Italian boutiques as well as the magnificent town of Gallipoli, known for its history and exciting nightlife, especially around the beautiful beach of Baia Verde with clubs and bars that come alive in the evening.

There’s a reason Puglia is the region of the moment, or rather several: the excellent food, exuberant architecture dotted in the South, the breathtaking coastline and heaps more. Puglia is much bigger than you might first expect, but you’ll get both a wonderful and varied Italian experience here.Use our travel guide as a nifty sidekick (think of us like the Robin to your Batman) to help you plan the holiday of a lifetime.
And don’t forget we’ve got a selection of villas in Puglia that will add that extra special touch to your trip.
The rocky ledges and idyllic coves across this part of eastern Puglia offers amazing opportunities for snorkelling in the crystal-clear waters. There are also many sandy beaches within a short drive, such as the amazing Marina di Pescoluse and other options just north of Otranto or around Gallipoli.
There are many grottos dotted along the eastern coast, some of which are accessible by boat tours which are offered at many marinas including in Castro and Santa Maria di Leuca. Indeed, both places are lovely places to visit with their harbour fronts, great restaurants and historic highlights.
Perhaps on a rainy day, a good option could be Splash Parco Acqualitco (46km), fun for all the family with shallow pools, daring slides and fun waterfalls.
