Where you’ll be

Oria, Puglia, Italy, Italy

From the house it is walking distance (12 min) to the genuine medieval town of Oria. Here you rarely find any tourists and will be warmly welcomed by the friendly Oritani people.
Oria has fabulous and affordable restaurants, the most delicious ice cream you have ever eaten and great coffee. In Oria you shop bread, fish, meat and locally grown vegetables in small shops. Fruits and vegetables follow the season and taste magical!

Puglia is famous for its food and there are many places to enjoy fabulous cuisine at excellent prices. A cappuccino costs a euro compared to 2-3 euro in more turistic cities. The prices of drinks and food is generally up to 30 % lower.
Food is important in Puglia, like passageata, which means that the whole town is wandering around town in the evening to talk with you and each other and have a drink or an ice cream before dinner.

In august Oria has a large medieval festival, the Torneo dei Rioni. It is a great celebration with a spectacular show and a fiesta with 800 costumed participants parading through the old town center and the castle.

Enjoy the beautiful walk to Oria old town, among the old olive trees, vineyards almond trees, wildflowers and the walk back at night under the stars.

An unspoiled part of Italy
Oria, in the Italian heel, is where you can still find the genuine old-fashioned authentic Italy. Living here is like being in a wonderful time machine, going back to good local food, a lot of small shops and friendly laid-back people.
Oria is located in the very center of Puglia and constitutes the doorway to the Salento peninsula. It is 25 min away from the crystal clear sea and its stunning beaches on both side of the coast. A perfect spot to explore Puglia, away from the beaten track of mass tourism.

Puglia offers two coast lines, a vast number of hill towns each with their own characteristics, and always beautiful, rugged scenery with knotted olive trees, spring flowers, red soil and acres of vineyards.

The villa is located 25 min from the Ionian Sea with miles of beaches where you are completely alone during off seasons. Adriatic coast, and the airport of Brindisi, 30 minutes.

Beautiful Francavilla Fontana is a larger town 7 minutes away, Manduria and its vineyards is only 10 min away.
Valle Tria and Ostuni are 30 minutes away.
Trulli town Alberobello is 40 minutes away and the Baroque town of Lecce is well worth a visit.
Otranto and the spectacular coast at Torre del'Orso are located less than an hour away
