7 Nights and 8 Days Singles Photography Vacations in Puglia

Puglia, Nicknamed Italy’s heel, in sun-baked southern Italy, offers a charming laid-back atmosphere. The photogenic land is dotted with fortified castles and whitewashed trulli, Puglia’s distinctive conical-shaped dwellings, and carpeted with a silvery sea of ancient olive groves.

It’s also an area proud of its food heritage, producing most of the country’s extra virgin olive oil and many excellent full-bodied wines. Other specialities include intensely flavoured olives, almonds, figs, orecchiette pasta, seafood risotto, fava beans and burrata, the supremely creamy cheese similar to mozzarella. You won’t go hungry between photography sessions here in Puglia! You’ll get the chance to try out some food photography, too.

Sights to savour with your photographic eye include the turquoise sea and long sandy beaches, as well as 13th-century Swabian castle, the city of Lecce’s Baroque churches, and Otranto cathedral’s amazing mosaic floor, the work of a 12th-century monk. There’s plenty of inspiration for photography, with help and advice from our resident tutor.

Where you’re going to stay
We use two villas in Puglia. Casino Pisanelli is an old Flavours favourite, a lovingly restored 17th-century hunting lodge in rural Salento, converted into a luxurious country retreat. Its formal gardens, picturesque pool, and shady courtyards planted with lemon and orange trees are idyllic and perfect for delicious meals al fresco.

Our newer property, in the charming coastal town of Gagliano del Capo at Puglia’s southern tip, offers traditional baroque architecture with a very stylish contemporary twist in its spacious interior, and is simply stunning. Both villas and locations offer exceptional photographic inspiration.
