Oria self-catering holiday accommodation is set in southern Italy’s Puglia region, known for its endless sandy beaches, fertile soil producing many of the best Italian staples, exquisite cuisine and laid-back rural ambience. The town itself is great for exploring on foot – there’s an abundance of beautiful 16th and 17th Century baroque architecture here, alongside a castle that dates back to the 1200s and is a must-see if you’re staying at an Oria Villa. The presence of such grand buildings can be put down to the fact that Oria was the capital of the province for a number of centuries in the middle ages. Visitors to self-catering accommodation in the town can choose from an array of sublime restaurants and pizzerias – in fact the town has a reputation as a culinary hotspot in the region. The region around Oria trulli features a host of charming old towns to visit amid its agricultural landscape, not to mention the immaculate beaches found on the Ionian and Adriatic Coasts. Torre Guaceto, under half an hour from self-catering accommodation in Oria, is a wonderful blue flag beach set within a nature reserve. Much of the shoreline on both coasts is suitable for children due to its gentle incline, and you’ll be able to enjoy glorious spots on the Ionian Sea at San Pedro and Campomarina. At Oria self-catering trulli you’ll be only 30 minutes from the much-loved town of Ostuni, fondly known as “The White City” due the fact that much of the town is whitewashed. Here you’ll be able to discover old churches tucked down narrow streets, which lead to a 15th Century cathedral perched on a hill overlooking the town.
Weather During your trip to a Puglia villa, you’re almost guaranteed warm, sunny weather in the summer – this region enjoys more than 300 days of sunshine a year, and lower humidity than other parts of the country.
