Taras

from€2,835/week· Villa

Apulia is often called “the heel of the boot” for its geographical position on the Italian peninsula. A vacation here is a magical mix of nature, sea, food, art, and relaxation. Over 50 million olive trees, miles and miles of golden beaches caressed by blue sea, and a fantastic climate with more than 300 sunny days per year make Apulia one of Italy’s most appealing regions. Here you can experience unforgettable food and wine and explore beautiful old villages and towns. Ostuni, the white city (in reference to its white lime covered buildings), is one of the many sites you may want to visit while discovering this striking region. And nearby, Taras Estate, surrounded by the silence of the olive grove and a mystical atmosphere, can accommodate up to 24 guests in two modular buildings, and it is where large groups can have a great stay while experiencing the authentic southern Italian lifestyle. For smaller parties, the Estate is also available in the 8 and 4 bedroom configuration.

Location

What to do in Apulia

Apulia boast the longest coastline among all mainland Italian regions, lapped by the Adriatic and Ionian limpid sapphire seas. For the most part of the year, this region is soaked by the sun and cooled by a fresh breeze, making it the perfect summer destination for the beach lovers. In the last decade, however, Apulia has been stirring tourists interest for many other reasons. Conquered by many different ancient civilizations – Greeks, Romans, Turks, Franks, Normans, Swabians, Angevins and Bourbons - Apulia treasures an impressive collection of castles, great artistic and cultural heritage, and important archeological sites.
Besides the magnificent beaches and the crystal clear waters, Apulia’s highlights include the unique village of Alberobello with its white-washed trulli lining the streets, the natural wonders of the famous Grottoes of Castellana and Fasano, the baroque city of Lecce, Ostuni, nicknamed la città bianca due to the picturesque white stone houses and churches, and - last but not least - the captivating food reflecting centuries of mixed cultural influences. The only con to visiting this region is…so much to experience, so little time!
