For Families

As a family with three children ourselves, we understand that holidays aren’t always very relaxing for parents!

At Rustic Puglia the family-friendly setting will help give you a break as well as your children, and we hope that we become your holiday home from home.

Italy is all about Family

Italy is a very family-friendly country and everywhere you go you will find that your children are cooed over, so you’ll be sure of immediately feeling welcome.

But it’s the little extras that we think will keep your children occupied, such as collecting eggs in the morning, picking the organic veg from the kitchen garden, enjoying all the toys, games and books we provide, and letting off steam on the professional trampoline and then cooling off in the pool.

We offer great value babysitting and a free baby listening service too.

The Trullo is on one level so no steps to fall down, there is a bathtub for ease of washing younger children and a baby bath for infants. The kitchen comes equipped with a dishwasher so no-one’s lumbered with the washing up, and there is a washing machine and tumble dryer.

The Little Touches

The kitchen has plenty of recipe books to help inspire your Italian feast, they feature Italian cuisine, local Pugliese dishes and children’s cookery books so little ones can join in. We provide a good range of guidebooks to the area, both ‘coffee table’ style and the in-depth Lonely Planet. There are also maps and brochures to the local towns to help you plan your holiday, as well as suggestions in our guest book. For pool and beach days we provide you with towels for each, so no need to pack your own.

We had such a lovely time and only wished we could have stayed longer. Our daughter almost 3 years old loved the pool as much as we did

Perfect ambience for an early holiday, we really didn't need to move away from the house and garden
