Your Destination

Matino is a provincial Italian town situated in the bucolic south-west corner of Puglia and nestled in the gorgeously rugged Salento countryside. Here, simplicity is at the heart of local life. Matino itself is a small, authentic town where visitors can indulge in the enviable slow-living lifestyle, savour the rustic aesthetic and taste exquisite fresh local produce. While meandering the humble streets, be sure to take the time to visit the local churches and view the magnificent frescoes. 
Matino is well situated to explore the treasures of the Salento Region. The area is abundant in olives, citrus, and almonds, and local cuisine benefits from the proximity of the sea and the rich agricultural surroundings, boasting both excellent seafood and farm produce. The provinces are subject to some of the warmest and driest conditions in the country, but experience a refreshing sea breeze from either side of the peninsula, which has aided the growth of an internationally recognised wine region. 
Within a 20-minute drive, lies the crystal clear, emerald water and beaches of the iconic Ionian coastline and the picturesque island-town of Gallipoli. A 40-minute drive will take you to stunning Lecce, the region's main city where you can admire the ornate Baroque architecture.
Set on Italy’s geographical ‘heel’, Puglia is a region that exudes the authentic charm of the country. Largely undiscovered by tourism, travellers venture here for its 400 km of secluded coastline, hilltop towns, and picturesque landscape. Here, you won’t find the bustling city streets of Rome or Milan, but rather a slow and relaxed lifestyle, sea views, and the best of the country’s cuisine.
