Great roads and terrific weather make for first-rate walking and some of the best biking in Italy. Just as impressive is the cuisine, including fresh local seafood, orrechiette (ear-shaped pasta), and tasty tomato-based sauces.
Peppered among the sun-soaked towns are several upscale hotels. One of our favourites is Masseria Montelauro, a country house just two kilometres from the ancient seaside town of Otranto. Travelling north past the Baroque wonders of Lecce to whitewashed Ostuni, Le Relais Sommità is a chic boutique hotel. Finally, no trip is complete without a visit to Masseria Torre Maizza or Masseria Torre Cocarro, sister hotels that offer casual elegance near the iconic towns of Locorotondo and Alberobello.
Gray & Co.’s biking in Puglia was featured in Private Clubs magazine. In the article “The Italy you don’t know – but should!” by Andrew Sessa we’re described as “a top flight outfit whose custom itineraries combine the pleasures of food & drink with the rigors of daily biking and hiking treks.” To read the full article and learn more about the pleasures of Puglia click here.
