Central Puglia Holidays

The centre of this large region is characterised by the fertile Murgia plateau which forms a gently rolling landscape dotted with olive groves. Many of our hotels are located in or near the Itria Valley which is famous for the strange trulli houses and picturesque whitewashed villages. This area is also a great destination for those in search of a relaxing beach holiday, as the superb coastlines of both the Adriatic and the Ionian seas with fine sandy beaches are only a short drive away. Make sure you take the time to visit a masseria where you can taste the extra virgin olive oil and locally made wines.

We love staying at this hotel - it feels incredibly authentic thanks to the rooms being located in trulli houses. The staff are excellent and the food is out of this world. Everything on your plate will come from nearby the hotel and the owners know all the best suppliers. The outside areas are just as nice. You can expect a lovely, quiet pool to relax by and stunning countryside views.

Staying in a trullo in Alberobello is definitely one for the bucket list! The town is filled with these conical-roofed buildings, earning it a UNESCO World Heritage status. The trulli are all centrally located and have been modernised to include WiFi and air conditioning. They're lovely and spacious and have a traditional decor. They are all central too so you can step outside your door and be within walking distance of the shops, bars and cafes.
