Find your ideal Puglia villa
Puglia (Apulia in Italian) forms the heel to the south of this boot-shaped country. Discover Puglia on your next self-catering holiday abroad, where the swimming season stretches over a long period between May and October, making a beach holiday possible at most time of year. Although splendid nature is a key player here, your family holidays can also benefit from an itinerary packed with ancient architecture, lively folk festivals, adventure activities and a vast array of delicious Italian cuisine. Rent an Italian holiday home from NOVASOL and explore some of the most beautiful beaches with crystal clear water, with the added bonus of authentic and inclusive culture.
Things to do around your Puglia villa
Puglia is a wonderful region if you like to swim, relax on the clean beaches or to take a coastal route to your favourite hotspot for a regional, seasonal lunch. Relaxing at your Italian country cottages with swimming pools is also a tempting option, whilst the parades, costumes, lights and fireworks at local celebrations make an exciting contrast. Although holidays homes in Venice and Rome are well-known for their access to exciting events, you can also find these in Puglia. The Cavalcata di Sant'Oronzo in Ostuni, is a major festival for those living there and is celebrated in August. Visit Bari, Gargano and Lecce on your family holidays for historical hotspots, natural wonders and warm and welcoming culture.
Italian villa holidays with amazing wildlife
When you think of beautiful Italian landscape, Tuscan villas spring to mind, but in Torre Guaceto, just south of Ostuni an incredible nature reserve is situated on more than 1,000 hectares of marine and coastal area. Nature lovers are allowed to roam around on walking holidays here on and in the water to explore rich flora and fauna on land. Sea turtles breed here, which is one of many reasons the nature reserve has been honoured by the Italian Legambiente. If you are looking for fun things to do the organisation is dedicated to environmental education and creates numerous campaigns to promote sustainable tourism on your Italian holiday.
