travel list

If you haven’t heard about the gastronomic delights that await you in Puglia, and if you are a massive foodie, then you are in for an absolute treat!

Puglia is a land not only rich in architecture and historical beauty but also famous for its gastronomy and award winning wines.

People come from all over the world to stay in our luxury holiday rentals, most of which boast modern kitchens that are fully equipped so why not make the most of our in-house Private Chef services offered exclusively for our guests! Enjoy a relaxing evening in your luxury holiday rental, sipping local wines and watching your Private Chef prepare the best dishes that Puglia has to offer!

And what are they might you ask? Here are some sample offerings from our menus, which we propose to our guests.

The famous focaccia

is known all around the world and originates from Puglia…..fresh tomatoes, oregano and olives needed into a dough and cooked to perfection. The smells of the focaccia will leave your mouth watering!

This makes a perfect antipasto along with local cheeses and a full bodied red wine such as a Primitivo di Manduria or Negroamaro di Salento.


A traditional first course is the “orrechiette” which is pasta made by hand and served with a simple but delicious tomato “sugo” and cooked in the oven.

Spaghetti allo scoglio

For those who are lovers of seafood you most certainly won’t be disappointed, with options such as swordfish, mussels or fresh barbecued fish on the menu!

For the vegetarians there is a wide variety of vegetable dishes in season either grilled, or the traditional eggplant parmigiana which is always a favourite!

If you are renting one of our Holiday Rentals with a wood fired oven, then why not take advantage of having the Chef prepare you some fresh pizzas!


Or try some “panzerotti” which is a special Pugliese delicacy like a mini calzone pizza filled with tomatoes, mozzarella and oregano or other delicious fillings! If your mouth is watering then book one of our luxury Holiday Rentals for your 2020 summer vacation and enquire with our Bookings department for our InHouse chef services! Your tastebuds will thank you!
