Discover Puglia’s blooming nature

In Puglia, the mild climate blooms the countryside. You will find plenty of flowers, different from each other in shape, colour and scent. A stroll or a bike tour in the early morning or at dusk will immerse you in a scented and charming dream. 

While on your countryside tour, take your time to stop by one of the charming masserie. There you can enjoy a handmade olive oil taste experience while the gentle breeze of the fields caresses you. 

If you are more of a sea lover, spring in Puglia will conquer your heart. It is the perfect time to relax on the sandy beaches of Puglia. Discover the beauty of Polignano a Mare’s beach without the crowds of August: it will become your favourite place in the world. Despite the water may still be cold-ish, the mild sun will regenerate your soul in a very relaxing holiday.

Moreover, take the chance to cycle or walk around Puglia’s nature reserves. One of the best areas to discover is Torre Guaceto’s Protected Marine Area. Here you can spend your day among the stunning sandy beach and crystal-clear sea or explore the area’s flora and fauna. Villa Charme and Villa Ananda are located just a few steps away from this Paradise and would be the perfect setting for your spring in Puglia.

Explore Puglia’s cultural and historical heritage

Summer in Puglia can be hot, making it very hard to plunge into Puglia’s precious gems. Hence, spring is the perfect time to wander around the towns’ city centres and among the borgos of the Itria Valley.

Allow yourself a relaxed stroll in Lecce, the baroque capital city. Enter the palaces, visit the churches and get amazed by the cathedral’s treasures. Besides this, of course, take the chance to taste the local food and wine traditions. For example, have the typical Lecce breakfast with a pasticciotto stuffed with cream and a leccese coffee, their traditional iced coffee. If you really want to enjoy Italy’s slow life like a local, plan your holiday spring in Puglia!

Moreover, if you travel during Easter break, join the Holy Celebrations. Religion has a huge role in Puglia’s culture, and the Easter Celebrations are the most important appointments that animate the city during the Holy Week. Every town has its own rituals and traditions, but, among others, Taranto’s Easter Celebrations are among the most renowned and participated.

Finally, enjoy the quiet narrow streets of Gallipoli, Alberobello and Cisternino. The small borgos in summer are chaotic and filled with tourists everywhere, but during the low season, you will plunge into their deepest soul, appreciate all the little details and be amazed by the stunning views of the surroundings.

For your stay in the Itria Valley, choose Tenuta Salènde or Trulli Terre di Puglia. From there, you will really be immersed in the magic of the little borgos in Puglia’s countryside.
