Hotels in Puglia
Hotels in Puglia offer a range of accommodations from beachfront campgrounds to artfully renovated ancient agricultural buildings, villas, and farmhouses. There are new resorts popping up every year as wealthy investors convert crumbling medieval convents into boutique spa hotels. Il Melograno, Italy’s only Relais & Châteaux property south of Naples, is a 17th-century masseria (farming estate) that is now sumptuously appointed with period furnishings and Persian rugs. Complete with a private beach and luxury spa, as with most Puglia hotels, this is the ideal blend of old-world charm and new world luxury.
Some of the best hotels in Puglia are the quaint bed & breakfasts that you can find in the sleepy country towns. More affordable than many of the hotels and easily as charming, the B&Bs also put you in walking distance of local cafes, markets and shops.
As an alternative to Puglia hotels, families may wish to rent a bungalow or trulli for a summer vacation. Trulli are cylindrical whitewashed houses with a cone-shaped roof of stacked gray stones. These prehistoric structures dot the hillsides in Puglia, but the UNESCO-protected town of Alberobello has whole neighborhoods of these former agricultural buildings, which are available for rent. Trullidea has dozens of renovated trulli, which are cool in the baking summers and cozy with fireplaces in wintertime.
