Puglia & Basilicata holidays

Dotted with sandy bays, pretty coves, hilltop villages and ornate churches, the region of Puglia offers an authentic taste of rural Italy and is the perfect setting for relaxation and exploration.

Just west of Puglia lies Basilicata, a charming region that is home to peaceful beaches, medieval towns, historic churches and remarkable cave dwellings. Hiring a car is a fantastic way to discover the regions' traditional towns, secluded beaches and unspoilt countryside.
