Holidays to Rosa Marina give you picture-perfect beaches and rolling countryside, minus the crowds.
If you’re looking for a slice of traditional Italy, this is it. Most travellers head straight down into Puglia’s heel, which leaves places like Rosa Marina virtually untouched. Those in-the-know are left with secluded coves, rugged coastal parks and Medieval hilltop towns to explore uninterrupted.
The beaches play a starring role in these parts. Along the coast, the warm Adriatic waters lap against cove after cove. And Rosa Marina nudges right up to Parco Dune Costiere, where the sands come backed by centuries-old olive groves, rural farms and tucked-away dunes.
Days out in Ostuni
Inland, the snow-white buildings of Ostuni spill down onto the hillside. A 15-minute drive will bring you to the heart of the city. This place is defined by its whitewashed streets, staircases and houses. Wander through the maze of narrow alleyways, which were built to confuse invaders, and you’ll find shops, cafés and eateries.
