Out and About

The Region of Puglia is extremely rich in history, culture and landscape and there are so many places to see and visit that it would be impossible to list them all.

 

Firm favourites include the amazing UNESCO World Heritage Site of Alberobello and its amazing Trulli.

 

The beautiful town of Ostuni, known as La Citta Bianca, should not be missed.  Bright and lively by day and night at all times of years, it is another must see for visitors to Puglia.

 

Nearby towns of Ceglie and Caravigno offer a wealth of historical buildings and a multitude of summer evening activities, including food and wine festivals, jazz evenings and other cultural events.

The baroque town of Lecce - the Florance of the South should not be missed and the stunning Ionian coastline is easily reachable by car.

 

 

San Vito Dei Normanni

This medieval town comes to life in the evenings when most locals come out to promenade and frequent local bars and restaurants. During the summer months there is always something going on, mainly centred around San Vito old town and its castle and square.

If you are ready to travel a little further, then you really should visit the ancient city of Matera with its fascinating Sassi. Matera was seen in the film The Passion of The Christ as well as many others. Matera was also awarded UNESCO World Heritage Site status.

 

The beautiful baroque town of Lecce should equallly not be missed and the bustling elegance of Brindisi is just a 30 minute drive away

A Walk Around Our Block

Nature lovers can take in the scenery local to La Mimosa with simple strolls around 'the block'. A typical such walk is easily done in an hour and will take in around four miles of the local countryside.

 

Further afield is the National Park of Parco Dune  Costiere, which offers stunning scenery and a wealth of photographic opportunities.

 

Beach lovers can get easily to the Adriatic coastline from Brindisi and up to the beaches in and around Rosa Marina, or travel further south to the beautiful Ionian coast.
