7 nights in Fasano, Puglia on BB
7 nights in Maratea, Basilicata on BB
Fully comprehensive car hire
This two-centre holiday is a great way of combining a visit to the atmospheric towns of the Valle d’Itria in Puglia with the countryside and coastal stretches of southern Italy.
800km of coastline with white sandy beaches go a long way to enhancing Puglia’s popularity with families but the conical-shaped trulli that dot the olive grove-carpeted landscape help bring out the child in all of us.
Mini-apartments, an outdoor pool and a great location make the friendly Masseria Borgo Ritella an ideal choice for families. Situated within easy reach of the towns of Alberobello, Locorotondo and Martina Franca, the Masseria is close to the beach and just 600m from the Zoo Safari at Fasano.
Self-drive transfer to Maratea (around 3.5 hours), travelling through the Pollino National Park, or taking a detour to the cave dwellings in the fascinating town of Matera.
Picture-postcard Maratea is the Basilicata’s principal coastal town, perched high above the unspoilt coastline and port, in the shadow of the 70m giant marble statue of Christ the Redeemer. The historic centre of town is a maze of narrow lanes and whitewashed buildings, while down on the coast, pocket-sized beaches and crystal clear water are a big attraction for families.
Accommodation is at the Locanda delle Donne Monache, a family-run hotel with a pool and a free shuttle bus to the beach. For families, there are suites with separate living rooms with sofa beds.
Please note that this is a sample itinerary and holidays can be organised combining any hotel, duration and method of travel.
