Your Holiday Itinerary

Day 1 - UK to Bari

Today, make your own way to the airport or be collected by our Private Chauffeur (if you've pre-booked) for your flight to Bari, and on arrival, we'll transfer you to your hotel near the historical town of Ostuni. Get to know your travelling companions over a drink before dinner this evening. D

Day 2 - Otuni - Cisternino

Our day begins with a visit to the beautiful town of Ostuni, which dates back to the 1st century AD, when it was an important Greco-Roman city. It's a lovely place to visit and is a picture-perfect Apulian town, with its whitewashed houses, meandering lanes and a colourfully tiled Gothic cathedral at its heart. We'll visit an olive oil producer and see how the oil is made before sampling the final product. Then we'll head to the town of Cisternino, which boasts a well-preserved charming Old Town.
Explore narrow, shady streets lined by whitewashed houses, historic churches and the elegant central piazza, which opens out onto a series of panoramic viewpoints from which you can take in exceptional views of rolling hills, dry stone walls and white-tipped conical trulli roofs dotting the landscape. B

Day 3 - Locorotondo and Masseria lunch

After a morning visit to the town of Locorotondo, we will head to the beautiful five-star Masseria Torre Coccaro, where you will be served a delicious meal - the philosophy of the masseria means that produce is always sourced locally. The setting for this fortified manor house is spectacular, as the scenery stretches out across the bougainvillea-adorned terraces to miles of idyllic countryside.​ B,L

Day 4 - Matera

Matera is a fascinating city, famous for the Sassi stone houses that decorate the landscape. Carved directly into the calcarenitic rock, these ancient cave dwellings, thought to house some of the earliest human settlements in Italy, were originally home to Turkish monks. To learn more about these fascinating houses we take a walking tour. You will be accompanied by a knowledgeable Local Guide, who will be able to tell you more about the history of the area and answer any questions you may have.​ B

Day 5 - Martina Franca, Locorotondo and Alberobello

The fascinating Valley of Itria presents plenty of opportunities to see the attractive Trulli houses that epitomise the region. Cylindrical in shape and topped by a conical roof, these ancient buildings line the streets of Alberobello, one of the towns we visit today. We will also discover the narrow lanes and whitewashed buildings of hilltop Locorotondo and Martina Franca, an evocative town filled with medieval palaces, churches and balconied houses.​ 

This evening enjoy an al fresco dinner under the stars in the rustic setting of a local Masseria farm, nestled within hectares of fields, vineyards, olive groves, pastures and woodland. The majority of produce served at the restaurant comes directly from the farm, including a variety of meats, cheeses and vegetables. B,D

Day 6 - Ostuni - at leisure

You've a free day today to relax at the hotel. This evening, if you'd like to experience the Italian way of life, be sure to join our optional excursion to Monopoli and Polignano al Mare. Departing late afternoon, we'll drive to Monopoli, a pretty coastal town with a delightful medieval centre and seafront promenade. It's the perfect place to enjoy an aperitif. We'll then move on to Polignano al Mare, a charming town perched on a limestone cliff overlooking the sparkling Adriatic Sea. You'll have free time here to explore the maze of winding streets and enjoy dinner in one of the inviting little restaurants. You could even treat yourself to some delicious ice cream for dessert!​ B

Day 7 - Ostuni - at leisure

Today you are free to explore at leisure, or maybe you'll choose to enjoy the hotel's facilities and the glorious Italian sunshine. Alternatively, you can join an optional tour to Lecce with a Local Guide. It is a charming town with a wealth of history, fine architecture, high-end boutiques and sophisticated cafés. The Roman amphitheatre is particularly notable - it was excavated in the 1930s and has seating for up to 15,000 spectators. We will also see the intricately carved facade of the Church of Santa Croce, which features gargoyles, dragons and a large rose window adorned with sculptures of flowers and cherubs. It is a fine example of the town's impressive Baroque architecture, which has given rise to its nickname 'The Florence of the south'. This evening we will meet at the hotel for a farewell get-together. B,D

Day 8 - Bari to UK

We'll transfer to the airport for your return flight to the UK. Upon arrival, either make your own way home or your Just You Private Chauffeur Service will be waiting for the journey home (if you've pre-booked). B
