New Voyage Privé

Carefully selected by our experts especially for you

Your Destination

 Santa Maria al Bagno is a charming seaside village that simply leaps off a postcard and into your heart. Stretched along the shores of the Bay of Gallipoli it is an authentic and well preserved traditional Italian village with unspoilt rocky and sandy beaches.

Particularly important to the area is the regional wildlife reserve of "Portoselvaggio", a famous natural park with 400 hectares of pinewood forest known as one of the main 'Green Lungs' of Puglia, and seven kilometers of high quality, unpolluted coast. 

Spend your holidays in Salento, on the Ionian coast, in a chic hotel overlooking the sea. This is living unforgettable moments, away from your daily routine and busy life, lulled by the rhythm of the waves, enticed by sumptuous cuisine, and enjoying the beautiful sunsets over the sea.

We strongly recommend you make use of our car hire option to explore this area.
