About the neighbourhood
Masseria Casalicchio is in close proximity to many of Puglia’s famous hilltop towns, each with their own character and historical centres quite unspoilt by new development. Within 5 minutes is Castellana Grotte, a beautiful market town with banks, supermarkets, restaurants and the world famous caves, arguably the most beautiful in Europe. The ancient town of Conversano, steeped in history with a medieval castle dating from Norman times is just 15 minutes and Putignano, a lively ‘buzzing’ town with an abundance of eateries and shops is an easy 15 minutes in the other direction. Within easy reach is the ‘must see’ town of Alberobello a UNESCO heritage site and fascinating place to explore the trulli, the conical shaped houses unique to Puglia. Nearby is Polignano al Mare, a spectacular s...
