Iconic trulli houses are scattered across the countryside where olive groves, almond trees and vines have been grown for hundreds of years in the rich, red soil. The sea provides a harvest of fresh fish which is cooked in inventive ways or simply served with pasta in a tomato sauce.


You won’t find many developed tourist resorts in Puglia, but you can expect to wander through the winding flower-decorated backstreets of its towns, sit in piazzas enjoying a gelato and be dazzled by the Baroque churches and palazzos. It’s a place to be reminded of how the simple things in life can bring the greatest pleasure.

A villa holiday in Puglia offers the best of both worlds - a comfortable house from which to explore, plus a private space to return to for a siesta (riposo in Italian). Enjoy the luxury of your own property with a large garden to relax and plan the next day’s activities. All have BBQs and some have a pizza oven too so you can create a culinary masterpiece with ingredients you’ve picked up at the market.

All Villa Plus villas have plenty of surrounding space, which is often planted with olive trees. You can choose between a traditional converted trulli or lamia building or opt for a contemporary architect-designed villa with all the modern conveniences you would expect. We include air conditioning in the bedrooms of many of our villas. Because our villas are situated in the countryside, a car is necessary to get to and from the airport. Renting a car will also give you freedom to visit the towns, countryside and coastal regions to learn more about this fascinating region.
