About Puglia

The fertile countryside of Italy's heel, Puglia is largely flat and characterised by olive trees with huge, gnarled trunks (some of them many centuries old), rich red soil, fields planted with tomatoes and artichokes, dry stone walls and a sense of endless space and far-reaching horizons. Our pick of the best places to stay in Puglia will enable you to explore this charming region from an equally charming property, whatever your budget!

Some of our Puglia collections:

The best hotels in Puglia are dominated by the masserias, dozens of which have opened their doors to guests in recent years. These traditional fortified farmhouses are characterised by a tall, solid, square central block and a series of outbuildings often enclosed within high walls. Some of them have aristocratic origins while others were quite humble dwellings.

Today's masseria hotels range accordingly from five-star places with swanky spas, gourmet restaurants and endless services and facilities to relatively modest guesthouses offering a back to nature experience and homely food. Prices vary accordingly.

Where to Stay - which town/area?

The region is dotted with fascinating towns and villages which offer a great deal to see and also make good bases for exploring further afield in the area. They are a great source of wide ranging accommodation including some of the best places to stay in Puglia.

Highlights include glorious Baroque Lecce (known as the 'Florence of the South'), Martina Franca, Ostuni, Alberobello (renowned for its trulli), Nardo, Locorotondo, Otranto, Gallipoli, Trani,
Polignano a Mare and Galatina.

Being long and narrow, nowhere is too far from the sea, and if you choose to stay in a location somewhere in the middle of the Salento peninsula, you can reach the splendid beaches of both the Adriatic and the Ionian coasts, as well as the area's historic towns, within a matter of about 20 minutes. Fasano is a prime example of a little known inland town, with its own little beach offshoot at Savelletri (just over 7km away).

Even if we don't list a hotel in these places, there is never one too far away. For those who prefer to self cater we recommend our online partner,, who offer a wide range from apartments to country houses.

What Not to Miss

  • Castel del Monte, a 13th-century citadel and castle, enjoys a hilltop location in Andria. Wander around this historic sight and be sure to learn all about the Castel del Monten wine that's produced in the area around the castle.

  • Fasano's Zoosafari Fasanolandia boasts a drive-through safari park, a great day out for the entire family. What's more, it includes the only male African elephant in Italy!

  • The baroque 17th-century Basilica di Santa Croce, situated in Lecce, is a beautiful spot to visit. Wander around taking in both the exquisite façade and breathtaking interiors.

  • Gargano National Park in Foggia is a splendid spot to visit. Head off on long hikes up Mount Gargano or head along the coast and marvel at the brilliantly blue sea!

But don't forget that this region of Italy is becoming more and more popular, so if you want to be sure of a bed in one of the best places to stay in Puglia, get organised and book well ahead.
