Charming Apulia and Matera | Private villa stay

Cost

from £1,030 pp

(ex international flights)

Duration

8 days

Discover beautiful Puglia on this self-drive tour around the heel of Italy’s boot. It is a magical region, still largely off the beaten path, which you can explore from the base of your private villa with pool - home for the full 7 nights! There are many things to do even in just one week: - Discover the delicious local food and traditions with an expert guide - Be amazed by UNESCO World Heritage Site Matera, the "City of Stone" - Sleep in a real "Trullo", the local ancient cone shaped houses - Walk in the lovely Puglian "white villages" narrow streets and much more. Puglia is also famous for its beaches and cliffs, with some of the best swimming in Italy - so don't forget to pack your swimming costume! This is a perfect holiday for one or two families with children travelling together, or for a group of friends. And in case you wish to treat yourself, we can provide a private chef for your meals at the villa.

We will tailor this trip to you. Change anything - from excursions to accommodation to places visited.
