The Salento Coast is in the region of Puglia on the heel of Italy and is a divine place for a beach and driving holiday with a difference. Here the chalk lightens the red soil and the crystal sea laps the cliffs and kisses the olive trees, which come right down to the shore line.
A warm welcome is extended by the locals who are enjoying the enriching aspects of tourism and who love to show off their rich artistic heritage , the wholesome food all to be enjoyed in a pleasant climate.
In Salento We Recommend…
Visit Lecce – the Florence of the south because of its beautiful renaissance architecture, Otranto with its cathedral recalls the splendour under Turkish domination and Gallipoli is fascinating with its ancient nucleus perched on a promontory.
The Salento combines a beach holiday with lots of cultural attractions. Stay in a – Casale farmhouse or a luxuriant Masseria (large farm complex) or even a trullo (ancient conical stone huts) found in the quaint unique village of Alberobello.
Try the beautiful wines of Puglia, organic ones too without preservatives. They are becoming very popular. Taste the magnificent olive oil which is different to other areas of Italy because of the soil.
