This lesser-known corner of Italy is an idyll of peaceful beaches and beach clubs such as Le Palme, dreamy accommodation and the best produce – and most delicious food – in the country. There are quiet bays to discover, Medieval towns to explore and olive groves to potter around. All is rural, elegant and utterly Italian, a real discovery for pioneering families.
Niche Junior says
We value our kids opinions - which is why we introduced Niche Junior, giving our little travellers a platform:
The stars at night were amazing and the sea was very clear and always warm. But you have to drive to the beaches so it’s important to have a hotel or villa with a pool so that you can jump in and cool down. We loved the giant olive groves – they are really good for playing hide and seek!

Why is Puglia perfect for families?
Apulians adore children, and they are welcomed with open arms wherever they go. The food is exceptional, suited to both sophisticated palettes and fussy little eaters, while the accommodation combines laid-back style with family-friendly touches such as cooking classes, shady swimming pools and endless activities.

Masseria Torre CoccaroSavelletri, Italy
We love: the authentic family-run Apulian Masseria, the 800-year-old olive groves, the warm welcome, the shady pool, the light and breezy interiors, the two private beach clubs nearby. And their entertaining nights with live music and a lot of fun for the entire family
