Postcard From: Puglia, Italy
Puglia is said to be Italy’s best kept secret, so why not explore this hidden gem? Located in the southern region of the boot’s heel, the region is full of charming villages dotted along the Adriatic coast. You’ll see groves of ancient olive trees, distinctive trulli houses, gorgeous beaches, grottoes, and more.
Where To Stay
This trip I stayed at Borgo Egnazia, a spot that feels like home. Everything is new but designed in traditional ways with a modern touch. The team here is fantastic and can make just about anything happen – from drives in classic cars, to cooking classes, and more. For a more farmhouse experience, check out Masseria Montenapoleone. Just outside of Puglia’s capital Bari, this countryside escape boasts vineyards, local food experiences, and a glimpse into the Puglian way of life.
Things To Do
Polignano A Mare is known for its white pebble beaches like Lama Monachile. Aside from the gorgeous water in Puglia, the region is also famous for caves and grottoes. When you’re ready to discover some of the local villages, stroll through the trulli house town of Alberobello. A must when visiting Puglia is also sampling burrata – as this is the region it comes from.
