Puglia Cooking Holiday, Italy

Company : Flavours Holidays
Activities: Cookery Courses / Tours / Cultural Tours
Country: Italy
Duration: 1 week to 1 week
Approx Costs: 1500 to 1500 £ Pound (UK)

Puglia is a sunny coastal region in south-eastern Italy, also know as the heel of Italy’s boot. We base ourselves in Salento, the heart of southern Puglia and a region with much to discover. 

The Cathedral in the handsome Baroque town of Otranto has a mosaic floor to rival Ravenna, while the city of Lecce has more than 40 churches and noble “palazzi” built in the 17th and 18th centuries. South of Lecce the landscape flattens and the sky opens out. Acres of olive groves extend between dry-stone walls. Blue-green sea and red cliffs combine to form a dramatic backdrop.

Where you’re going to stay

Casino Pisanelli is our Puglia holiday venue which is indeed a stunning venue, situated in the heart of rural Salento – a real hidden gem. Originally a hunting lodge built in the 17th century for a local count, the estate is now used exclusively by Flavours for just a few weeks a year. The style is a stunning mix of traditional and modern, with wonderful formal gardens and a swimming pool – the perfect spot to relax after a busy morning in the kitchen.
