Our region holds a number of festivals ‘sagra’ during the year, mainly during the summer; celebrating religious anniversaries, customs, local food produce, crafts, wines and music. They offer huge amounts of evening entertainment with live music and usually fireworks to close the event. Each village opens its community doors offering their hospitality and locality to visitors. Be sure you enquire with us as to the nearest one to your holiday villa in Puglia to ensure you do not miss out on all the fun and festivities!
Exclusive for our Guests at Relax Puglia
Chef in Casa - Home-cooked food for travelers of the world; what better way to grasp the inner circle of local life than to have a local cook share with you their Puglia cuisine, as cooked in their homes. We are fortunate to have on board Lucrezia, who has been working with Relax Puglia for nearly ten years.
Lucrezia is warm and generous with a passion I can only envy for cooking; but looking after two growing boys has been her real inspiration; working magic with fresh and seasonal local ingredients. Enquire with us, we have set menus available to choose from or let us know what you’ve in mind.
Cooking Classes – If you are looking to entertain the family and also wish to experience real Pugliese country cooking then look no further. Hands-on cooking lessons where everyone gets to be involved making a full course meal, from anti-pasto to first and second courses and to complete it with a traditional sweet dish.
In-house Massages - Life is easier when you are relaxed so you may need to pamper yourself or someone else. Bring the Massage Therapist to your Puglia rental villa door and enjoy a delicious massage, a fusion of eastern and western techniques pointing you towards both relaxation and cure.
The best part about bringing the Massage Therapist to your door is, you don’t have to drive, you don’t have to deal with the outside world, you don't even have to get dressed although the Therapist would appreciate you wear a robe!
"This property is gorgeous. More than enough space to comfortably sleep 6, could probably fit 8 if people were comfortable sleeping on the couches. The host is fabulous, amazing and quick communication, a property manager to help with any questions you have during the stay, always available. They left us a basket of local food and wine upon arrival (a blessing after a very long trip) which was delicious. The kitchen comes equipped with the essentials (including fresh eggs & milk left for us by our host) and anything you might need to cook a large meal. The bedrooms were gorgeous, complementary shampoo/soap/etc. which was really nice. And the property itself is fabulous, nestled in an olive grove on a hill, an absolutely breathtaking stay. Would absolutely recommend, one of my favorite air bnbs I’ve stayed in to date. Tip: wouldn’t come here without renting a car! It’s so helpful to have during your stay."

"Our stay was absolutely magical. Colleen who manages the property was incredible, she helped us book some amazing places to eat and explore. The Trullo is remote and a bit off the grid which is exactly what we were looking for. The pool is wonderful (no chlorine) and the whole ethos of the house is contagious. The little extras are a joy and really i cannot rave about this place enough. I hope everyone who stays there treads lightly and keeps it as beautiful as they find it."

The house is well appainted, spacious & very clean. It was lovely to be able to relax by the pool in our own space. Visits by the local cats enchanted our daughter! Thank you! ♥"
