Italy is a dream come true for families and this eight-day trip to sunny Puglia manages to seamlessly blend family-friendly facilities with luxury and style. Relax in your own mini-villa, play on pristine beaches, head out for a culture fix and indulge in the very best local food. Saluti!
Your home away from home in the heart of Puglia is equipped with plenty of comforts, including a pool and spa, so you can spend your first day exploring the hotel and enjoying your surroundings. To elevate this sense of luxury even further, the hotel has stunning beaches within easy reach. Lounge on the sand and soak up the Italian sunshine, or rent bikes and cycle through the picturesque Puglian landscape.
Your luxury family holiday to Puglia begins today. Catch an early morning flight to Bari from London, arriving in less than three hours - perfect for over-excited children who are desperate to start their holiday. One of our team will be waiting for you at the airport when you arrive, ready to whisk you off to your accommodation, under an hour's drive away. Stay in the heart of Puglia for the next week, surrounded by fragrant olive groves and just steps away from the crystal blue waters of the Adriatic Sea.
HIT THE BEACH
Once you've settled in, you've got a couple of days to enjoy the amazing hotel facilities and the stunning surroundings. There are a few beautiful sandy beaches near your hotel, just perfect for families. Equipped with playgrounds for the children and sun loungers, gazebos and a bar for the grown-ups, you can sit back, soak up the Puglian sun and chill out while the kids have a whale of a time.
Rent bikes from the hotel for a relaxing pedal though the picture-perfect Puglian landscape, head out on a family fishing trip or take advantage of the amazing kids' club and teen's club, giving parents the chance to read a book by the pool, treat themselves to a spa session or just enjoy some grown-up conversation over a glass of wine - bliss.
Today, we've arranged a fabulous, unique experience all the family will love. After breakfast, you'll head out on a bespoke treasure hunt around one of the nearby towns. Your treasure hunt, themed around your children's favourite things (we'll quiz you beforehand to make sure it's truly personal), will take you on an adventure through the labyrinthine streets of the old quarters, picking up clues along the way. The locals love to get involved, making the whole experience even more special. A real highlight of your holiday.
After a laid-back breakfast, it's completely your call whether you decide to make the most of the hotel's top-notch facilities or head further afield. Catch a bus or taxi (our Concierge will be able to help you out with this) to nearby Ostuni, one of the most beautiful cities in southern Italy. Famous for its whitewashed houses, this hilltop city boasts an impressive 15th century Gothic cathedral that's well worth a visit, but the best way to get to know this Puglian gem is to simply go for a wander through the old town and fall in love with the city's easy-going charm.
It's the last full day of your luxury family holiday to Puglia, so what better way to spend it than on the beach? Take the shuttle bus to La Fonte to make the most of that soft sandy beach and the crystal-clear waters of the sea - and the comfy loungers and bar, too. In the afternoon, let the children play to their hearts' content at the kids' club while you grab a couple of hours me-time, then enjoy al-fresco pizzas to round off your day.
Italy and food go hand-in-hand, and this afternoon you'll get to don your chef's hats and try your hand at cheese-making. Puglia is home to burrata cheese, mozzarella's wildly indulgent cousin. You'll be taken to a local farm for a fun afternoon learning all about the cheese-making process, watch an artisan cheesemaker at work, have the chance to get involved yourself and, of course, enjoy plenty of samples of tasty mozzarella and burrata.
Sadly, it's time to head home, but depending on your flight schedule, there may be just enough time for the kids to have one last splash in the pool before we transfer you all back to Bari airport. Your flight to London takes just over three hours, but the memories are guaranteed to last a lot longer.
