It is our desire to express our best wishes to all mothers in the world.
Besides, our heartfelt thoughts and affectionate closeness go, in particular way, to those mothers, who are fighting against a bad illness and to those, who are suffering and struggling to protect their children in the middle of an insane war.
Hello! It is the beginning of the fourth Advent week and we are in the mood for Christmas. We enjoyed a beautiful walk in the early morning in the Baroqued old town of Lecce, South of Apulia, and took some pictures while the city was just waking up. A new video is now available on Giuseppa Sallustio Vimeo channel and here in our webpages at My Holidays in Apulia®. Welcome!
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!
October is still the right time for enjoying a holiday abroad.
The weather is still mild in Apulia, in the South of Italy, and you can’t miss the opportunity for exploring villages of art, then sitting in a small square by a café and enjoying a good cup of coffee or a delicious ice cream.

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!

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
In this peculiar moment our world is going through, which requires spirit of adaptability, our thoughts go to those, who risk to get ill and doctors, nursing staff and volunteers, who are struggling every day facing illness in the huge effort to save life of patients. We hope we will overcome this hard challenge soon and in the best way possible. No doubt this unpleasant situation is also an economic challenge for a lot of people, in specific way, those, who are engaged in the tourism field, like us, since travellers, tourists, customers cannot travel as usual. We thank you all, who kindly are showing warmth and sympathy. We are glad and touched by the very special friendship feeling we have with you all. Many thanks for being all together. We hope to be back to a more normal situation as soon as possible. Please, be safe for yourselves and for your loved ones. Thank you
