Discover another corner of Italy in Apulia

Apulia is the heel of the Italian boot. It sticks out into the Med in a patchwork of sun-baked plains and rolling vineyards, and it's the 2nd-largest wine-making region in the country, which accounts for the all those tasting rooms and cellar doors. It's also something of an off-the-beaten-track destination and proud of it. Without the same press as those in places like Tuscany and Sicily, Apulia vacation rentals are free to be lonely in the countryside. Dotting the white-cliff bays of Gargano and nestling around the vineyards and baroque wonders of Lecce, they promise an immersive, authentic Italian getaway.

Things to do

Apulia isn't a stranger to history

Heading for the heel doesn't mean forgoing all that amazing Italian history. Not a chance. Apulia bursts at the seams with wonders. Just take handsome Lecce, a town of winding lanes and cobbled piazzas that sports Lecce Cathedral, with its acclaimed sculptures and statues, and an ancient Roman amphitheater. Then there's the Castle of Otranto and its haunting rooms – made more haunting by the spine-tingling Gothic novel it inspired. Top that off with the UNESCO-tagged Sanctuary of Monte Sant'Angelo, a site of medieval pilgrimage, and the rustic trulli – whitewashed stone dwellings with conical roofs – of Alberobello, and you begin to get an idea of just how much there is.

Activities

Apulia's own dolce vita

Routines in Apulia have everything you might want from Italy. A stretch and a swim in a pearly blue sea could kick things off, if you've opted for one of the irresistible Apulia vacation rentals on the Gargano coast. A dip with sweeping views of undulating vineyards and olive farms awaits those who've chosen Apulia vacation rentals with pools. Then come long and languorous lunches under the sun – fine wines of the Ostuni DOC, creamy burrata, the best tomatoes you've ever tasted. Follow that with afternoon encounters with UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and evening strolls through grand baroque towns.

Weather

Apulia gets really hot

Apulia is one of the southernmost regions of Italy. That means it gets pretty hot in the summer, which runs from June to August. If you plan on coming then, you might want to consider bagging yourself Apulia vacation rentals with a pool or proximity to the beaches north and south of Bari – and definitely bring the sun cream. Fall is usually considered a good alternative. It's when the vacationing crowd reduces as the mercury level drops, meaning it's a tad cooler and less busy in months like September and October.

Natural features

Blinding countryside in Apulia

Apulia sports the longest coastline of any mainland region of Italy. In the north, its shores are taken by the wonderful Gargano National Park. It dips in and out of the Adriatic with white-stone caves and coves, offering countless pebble beaches and clusters of lanky palms on the cliffs. Inland is the less-trodden Alta Murgia National Park, surrounded by swathes of olive farms and vineyards. It's got green hills and boulder-studded fields, all of which come to life in spring, with blooming poppies and clusters of wild herbs.
