We love the Salento area where we live – but not in August when it becomes overpriced, overcrowded quite apart from being swelteringly hot! However, during the rest of the year, particularly in April, May and June, September and October, it is a truly magical place to be. Warm enough to swim, but also with lots to discover, quite apart from the amazing beaches. Archaeological sites, beautiful towns, trekking along a stunning coastline, all kinds of sporting activities, plus food and wine galore.
As a family we want to show families how to get the best out of the area. We work as a kind of tour manager but in a very informal way, having a chat about the kind of things you might like to do and helping you set it up. Whatever it is you need help with – a place to stay; a good place for a day trip; information on local events and of course which beach is best (this actually depends on which way the wind is blowing down here!) – then we feel it would be worth contacting us for our insight into the area, practical advice and, when needed, linguistic assistance.
