PUGLIA

villa holiday blog post image

Puglia, Italy's heel, is a veritable storehouse of natural and cultural treasures waiting to be discovered. With its fabulous climate, Apulia has the best of both worlds: some of Italy's quietest and most unspoiled beaches, a stunning coastline, and inland, landscapes that are fertile and undulating - often dotted with picturesque olive trees and pastoral herds of sheep. As you travel across Apulia, the silhouettes of ancient ruined castles and magnificent palazzi on the horizon imbue this land with an almost Arcadian feel and evoke a sense of peaceful nostalgia for former times.
