Here are 4 unique accommodation options for your family to discover on your Apulian adventure:
1) Stay inside a cave, Matera
Staying in a cave in Matera can be a unique and memorable experience. The Sassi of Matera are ancient cave dwellings that have been carved into the rock and are now a UNESCO World Heritage site. Many of these caves have been converted into holiday rentals, and offer modern amenities while preserving the traditional architecture.
A truly unique and authentic experience, as it allows you to step back in time and imagine how people lived in the past. The caves are often located in the historic centre of Matera, which allows you to easily explore the town on foot.

4) Agriturismo Farm stays
An agriturismo (in Italy) is a type of accommodation where guests can stay in a traditional farmhouse (masseria) and experience the local culture and way of life. The term “agriturismo” is a combination of the words “agriculture” and “tourism” and it refers to a form of rural tourism that involves staying on a working farm. Agriturismos are typically located in the countryside and offer guests the opportunity to learn about farming and the local culture. They often offer activities such as horseback riding, olive oil tastings and cooking classes, and also many of them have a restaurant where you can enjoy traditional and local products.
Guests can stay in rooms or apartments in the farmhouse, and some agriturismos offer additional amenities such as swimming pools and playgrounds. Many Agriturismos are also eco-friendly and support sustainable practices. One Masseria we recommend is: Masseria Chicco Rizzo located just outside Lecce.
