Why Salento is an area suitable for family holidays
As hospitality experts in Puglia, we can believe that the reason why so many families choose Salento is mainly related to the fact that … there is no family like another.
Toddlers or children, teen agers, extended families, families who move with the elderly and families who move with pets: so much variety is linked to many different needs, tastes, requirements and Salento is able to satisfy them all in its own way.
Those who choose the Salento area for their summer holidays know they can take advantage of many kilometers of beautiful coastline, where the landscape changes in the space of a few miles.
Ranging from the mostly sandy territories of the Ionian side to the rocky areas of the Adriatic sea, with “secret” coves where the beaches protected by the surrounding rocks almost give the idea of being lost on a deserted and private island.
Both the variety of landscapes and the possibility to choose a different scenario every day, makes families with an exploratory intent and with school-age children or adolescents at ease.
There is the possibility of relying on a single territory, with easy access to the sea and the city, ideal especially with very young children, with whom to enjoy the hours when the sun is less strong.
By car, it is possible to go in a few minutes from beautiful cities of art, villages among the most beautiful in Italy such as Castro, Gallipoli, Ostuni, Santa Maria di Leuca, Salve, Galatina, Maglie and then, always in a short time , move to the areas of fun, strolling and nightlife that are so interesting for families with lively teenagers.
The possibility of alternating the choice, during your family holiday, of private equipped beaches and free beaches, depending on the day and the ease of the period, practically in all areas of the very long Salento coast, is a further factor of choice and preference for families with children aged 6 to 18.
A holiday in Salento for families is a holiday dedicated to the possibility of choosing every day, according to one’s wishes and family needs, which are always very variable from day to day.
