Salento: A Region in Puglia
By now, everyone has heard of Italy’s famous Puglia region (sometimes spelled Apulia in English). But this is a very large region geographically, so let’s go even further south into the heel of Italy’s famous boot shape, into Salento. Natives of this area typically refer to themselves as Salentini rather than Pugliesi and as soon as you visit, you’ll understand why they would be so proud of their roots. From the turquoise sea to the hidden grottos, from its exquisitely simplistic food to its warm people, Salento is practically a country all its own.
Choose Your Sea: Ionian or Adriatic
One of the many aspects that makes Salento so special is the fact that you can choose from two different seas and a variety of different types of beaches. Generally speaking, the eastern coast (Adriatic Sea) is characterized by rocky cliffs and natural grottos whereas the Ionian side offers mostly sandy beaches.
The Camere a Sud Bed & Breakfast Location
The three rooms to choose from include breakfast (air-conditioned rooms, flat-screen TV, WI-FI, balcony, and bicycle rental for all its guests. You can add other services such as dinner at the fabulous on-site restaurant, Pesce & Bollicine .
In just a few kilometers you can reach the Ionian Sea (Marina di Alliste, Torre San Giovanni to name a couple) and guests will have the possibility of adding an umbrella and deckchair rental service at nearby beach establishments. Camere a Sud boasts a beautiful swimming pool for the days or evenings when you prefer to relax closer to “home”.
In the Immediate Area
It goes without saying that most visitors come to Salento for its beaches that rival any found in the Caribbean or the Maldives. In about 30 minutes from the Vistamare Salento locations, you’ll be at the highly sought-after beaches of Gallipoli, Ugento, Santa Maria di Leuca, and Pescoluse. Or, if you choose to visit the Adriatic side, Otranto, Castro, and Santa Cesarea Terme are all within an hour’s reach by car. And don’t miss one of the most fascinating cities in all of Italy, the capital of the region, Lecce.
Inland areas and towns are also worth exploring such as Specchia, Presicce, and many others that you may stumble upon while exploring.
And if you want to truly experience authentic Salento, just follow the infectious beat of the tambourine where someone is likely dancing the pizzica (a traditional folk dance), and the glow of the light displays for a town festa, especially in the months of July and August.
