It was about a month ago, on February 23rd, when we took off from Brindisi airport and we looked at these stunning views of the Adriatic coast from the skyes of Apulia. Enjoy the video and a good weekend to everybody!
A walk in the Baroque city lights
It was last year, around Christmas time, when your host, Giuseppa Sallustio, made the following Vimeo video with a selection of photos taken between Autumn and the Advent season 2020 by visiting small towns and cities of art in the South of Apulia. Then, the short Vimeo video was posted here in the Home page dedicated to My Holidays in Apulia® tourist company.
From then on, in this 2021, more steps have been taken to overcome the pandemic, in order to get back to a more normal life and finally, by observing health rules, being allowed to visit families members, meet friends, to travel, etc.
Now, we are almost to enter a new Advent season and the wish for everyone is to live this time of the year with the mesmerising child feeling in the heart.
Welcome and enjoy the video:

It was time for a gorgeous drive along the winding streets of the undulating hills among Brindisi, Bari and Taranto provinces. When we left the city of Lecce, the weather was nice and mild, indeed it was 26° C. Later on, after one hour and a half of driving, the tempearature was around 22° C and the sky had a light veil of clouds, which enhanced the mellowness of the soil and the honeyed palette of colors that nature uses to offer as gift during the Autumn season.
Once more we witnessed a masterwork of nature. Reverberating golden light and pink streakings painted the sky above ploughed fields, these latter as powerful expression of hard work and daily life in the surrounding area. That modern view of a rural frame, which reminded of the meticulous telling of great artists about authentic life in the countryside.
Wishing everybody a beautiful weekend!
“It is nature that makes wheat and grass grow, but it is art that prepares the soil”. – Giovanni Battista Della Porta

Sieglinde (CIS: LE07503591000000616) is a beautiful, well-catered 19th century vaulted ceilinged apartment, only few steps away from the historical center of Lecce, a Baroque art jewel of Apulia. The cosy living – fire place area is where guests can find relax by listening to music or reading a good book chosen from the shelf. Besides, it is an ideal area for drinking a toast to the Italian holiday, enjoying a BBQ or a fine romantic dinner by candle light. What is more, guests may also take advantage of the free internet wifi connection by keeping on job activities even though they are on holiday.
Through the eyes of their host, Giuseppa Sallustio, it was the cosy feeling of home for her guests, friends, families who chose Lecce for their Christmas holidays.
They had great time visiting the old center of Lecce, in the South of Italy, enjoying its art, exploring the coasts without missing the chance of a long drive in the beautiful Itria Valley and then having good food all together by the fire place.
Your visit at My Holidays in Apulia® webpages is very welcome. Thank you!
It is early morning, about 27.5°C, when, from the highway Lecce – Gallipoli – Santa Maria di Leuca (exit Galatone), I head to Seclì, a village in the South West of Apulia. Indeed, it is not too far from the Ionian coast.
The small ancient church, dedicated to S. Antonio, (one of the patron saints of the village), is on the right side, at the beginning of the main street, which leads to the center of the village. The church was built around the end of the 16th Century together with the ancient monastery, where friars belonging to the order of Friars Minor lived following the Franciscan Rule.
On June 13th, in the early morning, locals and even people on foot from the neighboroughood, get to the church for the celebration of the mass in honor of the humble saint, on small pilgrimages made of prayers and old singing.
A very suggestive moment in all the celebration is when local bakeries and common people offer and share “the holy bread of S. Antonio” with the community, as sign of deep devotion toward the saint and old ritual to express thanks at the reaping time, which happens again and again one year after an other.
Es ist der Beginn des Sommers und wir freuen uns, wieder mit neuer Fotografie zu beginnen. Hier sind wir in Lecce, im Süden Apuliens. Kommen Sie mit mir für einen Spaziergang?
Ein gutes Wochenende für alle!
Hello, here we are in the Easter week again! On this very special occasion, it is our own desire, first of all, to express a feeling of compassion on those, who are struggling against covid, hoping they could have soon a good recovery from it. Then, we would like to take the chance to be close to our customers, followers, friends and their own families to wish all the very best for a blessed Easter season. Of course, it is also our own wish to start with full activity in the hospitality field as soon as safer measures for the health of everybody will help and finally let us welcome our guests again for their holiday stay by our family accommodations here in Apulia, in the south of Italy. Thank you 🙏🌱🐣✨💖
A dominant impulse on encountering beauty is to wish to hold on to it, to possess it and give it weight in one’s own life. There is an urge to say ‘I was here, I saw this and it mattered to me’. ” – Alain de Botton
