We highly recommend venturing into Basilicata to admire Matera’s incredible sassi and ‘rock churches’, with a 2-night add-on stay in the city; or why not add an exploration of the magnificent Gargano with 3 nights at the 4-star Hotel Residence Il Porto, to enjoy strolls, beaches or relaxing by the pool?
 
This Holiday in a nutshell
  • self-guided, cultural journey by car (hire car included)
  • discover Baroque treasures and ancient trulli houses
  • visit Lecce, ‘Florence of the South’
  • stay in three traditional masserie
  • option to add-on Matera and the Gargano peninsula

Italy’s ‘heel’ is a land of olive groves that stretch as far as the eye can see, a picturesque coastline riddled with caves, Baroque architecture, and whitewashed, flat-roofed houses reminiscent of the Aegean. There is a faded, unpretentious charm to the towns and villages, while the delicious gastronomy draws on the full flavours of the Mediterranean.

Mi sveglio e vedo un paese di sogno come se dormissi tuttavia. (I awake and behold a land of dreams as if still sleeping.)
     
Gabriele D'Annunzio – Italian writer & poet (Valle d’Itria, 1917)
Our discovery of southern Puglia features three masserie of character, from which you can explore at leisure. We provide suggestions on cultural visits that take in the most beautiful architectural treasures as well as some excellent restaurants where you can pause for a leisurely lunch of pasta and seafood accompanied by a crisp dry or slightly sparkling white Locorotondo or a full-bodied red Primitivo wine.
