Sights to savour along with the turquoise sea and long sandy beaches of Puglia include the handsome Baroque cathedral in Otranto, with a mosaic floor to rival Ravenna, and the city of Lecce’s more than 40 churches and a noble palazzo built in the 17th and 18th centuries. South of Lecce, the landscape flattens and the sky opens out. Acres of olive groves and vineyards extend between dry-stone walls. The coastline of turquoise sea and red cliffs combine to form a dramatic backdrop – the perfect spot for a week to relax, rejuvenate and improve your Pilates .
Lovely Pilates teacher and super chef. They were both kind, fun and made the holiday most enjoyable. Certainly the whole group got on really well and it was a great holiday.
