Well there is no doubt about the rich and colourful geographical formation of this hidden territory; as a first-time visitor, the vastness of this sub-Mediterranean region of Italy; from the Terra di Bari to Salento, provides many dominating and individualistic elements of an explosively innocuous and singular tract of land.
For a longtime, the first travellers to Puglia arrived as courageous adventurers uncertain of their welfare and destiny; today the visitor to Puglia does not come by accident but by simple choice. Curious and intrigued by an expanse of land solidly attached to Italy but offering an expansive connecting bridge; a stepping stone to Greece, Albania and the Orient.
Inland the geographical formation is enriched by luxuriant mountain ranges with panoramic routes tripping along the coastline; terraces agricultural fields meeting wide expansive wheat fields, fruit orchards and ancient olive trees on mass as far as the eye can see, stone enriched hilltops with villages toppling at the summit, sleepy lagoons and underground caverns of grottoes.
The generously rich and fertile soil, the source of Puglia’s wealth & culture, toiled as it was inherited, to produce Italy’s best wines and produce, making Puglia famous for the simplest of pleasures.
Puglia is a region to be visited during all four seasons with a meteorological climate encouraging the preservation of vast natural reserves and unusual animal and wildlife habitation, with a variety of flora and fauna, parks and thermal resources.
Puglia is a synthesis between the sky and the land, an exhibition of sacred and layman’s stones, of people and languages, civilizations and cultures, traditions and customs, festivals and cults. A region not uniquely shaped by history, but by a thousand undetectable facets.
All around, a variable coastline without end, sandy beaches and cliffs, sleepy lagoons and underground caves; a complex tableau of colours. A sea that historically protected its civilization, today a playful homage to beachcombers and adventurists.
Puglia is a culinary destination for foodies around the world. Many of the foodstuffs have become available abroad but tasting it locally, and how the locals eat it, is all together a different experience. You cannot beat first-hand knowledge.
Some of the best valued wines come from this region of Italy, a wine-lovers paradise right here in Puglia. Open-days and wine tastings are a great opportunity to check out the rising stars in the neighbourhood and ensure your wine rack is topped up.
Mother Nature has bequeathed us with Puglia. A rich geographical formation, luxuriant mountain ranges panoramic coastline; terraces of agricultural and wheat fields, ancient olive trees, sleepy lagoons and underground caverns of grottoes.
Tailored or mainstream outdoor activities for the energetic or the slow adventurer can be easily combined with nature and wellness whilst exploring Puglia from coast to coast. The meteorological climate accommodates all year outdoor activities.
"A clean and spacious apartment with a very well equipped kitchen in a tastefully converted Masseria. Very peaceful location close to Cisternino and surrounding towns. The view from the pool is spectacular and the sunsets are breathtaking. The owners and staff are really friendly and accommodating and being able to pick fresh figs and other produce from the garden was such a treat. A real gem and highly recommended." Lindsay T. - Masseria Poesia (September 2017)
"Je voulais vous informer que nous avons énormément apprécié la maison Cantone et votre accueil; Michele est également très sympathique et très serviable. Cette maison est très bien conçue (elle garde le frais !), aménagée d’un style qui nous a beaucoup plu et très bien située pour découvrir les alentours. Si je puis me permettre, quelques éléments pourraient la rendre encore plus parfaite : 2 beaux parasols autour de la piscine, des verres en verre et une casserole, et les arbres donnant sur la piscine à couper un peu (ils privent la piscine de soleil à partir de 17h30 environ). En conclusion, nous avons adoré cette maison, elle a détrôné celle que nous avions loué l’année précédente, et nous espérons y revenir un été prochain. Merci à vous. A bientôt j’espère.

"Thank you for an amazing holiday! The Trullo was lovely, very well appointed and lots of space for the six of us. Due to the gorgeous weather, we didn't actually spend much time in the trullo, we spent most of our time outside. The outdoor areas worked really well, lots of space to eat, relax, swim and sunbath. We also enjoyed exploring Martina Franca and the surrounding area. We all had a super holiday and are definitely missing the weather, food and pool now that we are back in the UK!" Fiona S. - Trullo Mater Domini (August 2017)
