Change your view
Add a dose of sea air and sun to your daily routine in Brindisi, Puglia. As part of our Live and Work Anywhere programme, Airbnb has partnered with Brindisi. You’ve likely heard about Puglia, the charismatic corner that makes up the south-eastern ‘heel’ of the Italian peninsula. It is perhaps less likely you know about Brindisi, a less-trodden province within the region, which stretches out along the Adriatic Coast. Here’s why it’s an ideal destination for remote workers.

Why Brindisi?

An ideal location with sea views and rolling Apulian countryside

Brindisi is the end point of the historic Appian Way from Rome. In the town, you’ll find the Roman port, named the “port of peace” by UNESCO, and there are plenty of beaches to discover nearby. Further inland, you’ll find olive groves and gorgeous wineries, dotted with traditional cone-roofed ‘trulli’ houses (you can even stay in one). The region is easily accessible thanks to an international airport and train station along the Adriatic Railway. Photo credit: Luca Vitali

Great for remote working

Brindisi offers a wonderful quality of life for an affordable price. There is already a thriving international community thanks, in part, to the presence of one of the most important UN logistic bases in the world. The province is also helping to welcome new remote workers with great perks, like free access to coworking spaces and discounts on transport, gym memberships, cultural experiences and so on. There will even be a dedicated community manager for ‘digital nomads’. You can register on Brindisi’s dedicated website to access these benefits.

A rich cultural offering and amazing food

Brindisi was recognised by the Guardian as one of 21 off-the-beaten-path travel discoveries for 2021. The historic port town features original Roman columns, medieval and renaissance era castles and churches, and an impressive archeological museum with ancient Roman and Greek artifacts. Food-lovers will be in heaven trying out the local Apulian cuisine. Think focaccia pugliese, a pillowy bread made traditionally with potato mixed into the dough, doused with olive oil and topped with fresh tomato and herbs, or pasticciotto, a mouth-watering custard-filled pastry. The offering is finished off with local wines, like the rich Negroamaro red. Image: Carlos Solito

World-class sailing and water sports

The province is a hub for sea-faring and maritime events, and the perfect place to breathe in some restorative sea air. June marks the 35th edition of the International Brindisi-Corfu Regatta, a major sailing event with crews from all over the world. The World Powerboat Championship is also a big event in the nautical calendar, as well as the Brindisi-Valona Regatta. There’s also a huge range of sea-related sporting activities, experiences, and courses, such as kayaking, windsurfing, surfing, rowing in traditional boats, SUP, sailing, and more, for the perfect balance between work and your new life in Puglia.
