Puglia.....hoping to get some ideas!!

Jump to last reply

Hey all, we are off to Puglia for 2 weeks in late May/early june. We have booked a villa between monopoli and locorontondo. We plan on speding 7 nights in and around the villa (ie anywhere within 45-1hr mis drive) and the other 6/7 exploring further afield. So th obvious places like ostuni/aerobella should be covered.

The only definites i have so far for the further afield days are Matera (ok not puglia but near enough) and Lecce and were hoping to get some ideas

We would love to spend at least one/two days going to one of the better beaches in Puglia ( i hear the southern salento region is best)... but not sure if this is too long a trek for a day on the beach? i know i can look at the km etc but its hard to judge how long they realistically take.

We are big foodies, and love nice scenery "pretty" towns. Not big museum people but like nice architecture. Apart from Lecce we are going to try and avoid big towns/cities such as bari as more keen on countryside

Any ideas on places not to miss would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
