Alberobello is a perfect place to holiday in if you want a peaceful vacation in the south of Italy or as a base to explore Puglia and its myriad attractions. The weather is idyllic from spring through to autumn so if you arrange either a hotel, villa, masseria or trulli with its own swimming pool it should get plenty of use. The local beaches are approximately 45 minutes drive in either direction to the north or south coast. Within the same sort of distance there are enough local tourist attractions to keep everyone in the family happy.
For self catering breaks the choice of accommodation is also plentiful and you can join the Italians buying the fresh seasonal food at the local market or from one of the many farmers that seem to appear on every street corner selling their latest crop.
