It could be your ideal rural retreat from which to explore some of Apulia’s best known attractions all within a half hour’s drive. Amongst them the town of Alberobello the world’s trulli capital, the wine growing area surrounding the town of Locorotondo, Martina Franca with wonderful baroque architecture, Ostuni the white city, the coastal strip by the Adriatic and the grottoes of Castellana.

Alberobello is the capital of the trulli country in Puglia, and the old town, which has been decreed a national monument, is an important tourist attraction. The principal quarters of the town, Monti and Aia Piccola, are entirely made up of trulli lining the uphill lanes: a fairytale scene which never fails to enchant visitors to this part of the region.

The grottoes of Castellana are the most exciting series of caverns in the whole of Italy. First discovered in 1938 the caves are a series of corridors connecting various chambers, rich in stalagmites and stalactites, in alabaster and other coloured stones. The caves are 1.5km long with an average depth of 65m. The Grotta Bianca (the white cave) is considered, by some the most beautiful cavern in the world because of its brilliant crystalline formations.

Locorotondo is a strikingly beautiful town designed in a circular plan (hence the meaning of the name “round place”). It has been referred to as the “balcony of the Valle d’Itria” as it is set on a hilltop at the heart of the Murge and affords spectacular views of the Itria Valley. It is famous for its white wine and a visit to the Cantina del Locorotondo is certainly recommended.

Ostuni is a pre-roman town built on three hills. The beautiful old town centre is made up of steep medieval alleys and is circled by ramparts and many hours can be enjoyed just exploring these gleaming white streets. The cathedral, in the heart of the old quarter has one of the most beautiful facades in Puglia. The focus of town life is the triangular Piazza della Liberta flanked by bars and restaurants where you can sit outside and watch the world go by.

Martina Franca is a stunning 18th Century town with a marvellous showcase of baroque and rococo architecture. It is known for its strong white wine, which is used in preparing spumanti and vermouth. It is unlike any other city in the province and is untouched by tourism. Its plan is almost circular, surrounded by a long and very panoramic ring road overlooking the Itria Valley, dotted with trulli.
