A Magic Christmas in Puglia

December is at the door and, needless to say it, the first thing that comes to mind when we think of this month is undoubtedly Christmas.

The cities are covered with lights and colors and the sparkling and chilly air in the evening is mitigated by the warmth of a celebration that everyone eagerly awaits.

Maybe you won’t believe it, but in our beloved Puglia, even Christmas time is great for treating yourself to a holiday right here.

Mercatini di Natale in Puglia

The mild climate and the usual warm welcome of the Pugliesi people make the days before the holidays even more magical, mesmerized between the beauty of the Apulian villages lit up for the Holidays and the scent of food that invades the streets.

Here at Christmas time, throughout the region it seems that a single table is set up that goes from north to south of the heel of the boot and invites all travelers and visitors to sit down and celebrate together.

On the table cartellate, pettole, taralli and succulent main course dishes.

Yes, many jokes regarding our endless lunches but, dear travelers, try to sit down once at the table of a Pugliese family at Christmas and you’ll be looking forward to coming back next year.

There are also numerous Christmas events organized in the various cities: the New Year’s Eve in Piazza del Ferrarese in Bari is a must for example.

Those who choose Salento as a destination for the upcoming holidays, can not miss the opportunity to visit the suggestive Living Nativity of Tricase (LE) and the monumental Nativity which every year adorns the Roman Amphitheater in Piazza Sant’Oronzo in Lecce.

On December 24 in Specchia is the day of the Pittula Festival, one of the oldest renewing itself for about thirty years. The pittule are typical frittelle salentine made with flour and oil and sometimes stuffed with tomatoes, turnips or olives.

So we advise you to hurry up, you are still in time to come and experience a Christmas in Puglia.

Down in Salento the elegance of Residenza DePietro will welcome you in Cursi,

Ā The reassuring Villa Elena‘s tower will welcome you in Galatone


The chic Casa degli Affetti will welcome you in Vitigliano


And the charm of ancient and modern blend of Palazzo San Giovanni will welcome you in Morciano di Leuca.


As always it is not up to us to convince you to choose Puglia for your vacation, we know in your heart, we Puglia is already on your wish list.

And if you really can not make it for this Christmas, there’s a whole New Year, 2019, to make it happen. All you have to do is contact us and, perhaps, this year under the Christmas tree you will find a vacation by BeeYond Travel.

Palazzo San Giovanni a special place in Puglia

Thanksgiving, our favorite Holiday of all. This Holiday is not about the gifts, it is not about the stress, it is not about the rush-rush; no…this Holiday is all about family and friends, something very important and especially in Italy where the gatherings assume a very deep meaning. One conception the world has about Italy is that we eat, eat and eat; but trust us friends, it is not just about the food, it is about the famous “giving” so celebrated on Thanksgiving Day. The giving which can simply be a good laugh, a good advise, an ear to listen, a landing hand, sharing a healthy meal with the family, the friends and all the ones we love. Italy has mastered this so much that still now down south and of course in Puglia, this does not happen just on Thanksgiving Day, it happens every day, naturally! 

On such special day we could not spare you from surprising yet once again with another amazing property: Palazzo San Giovanni in Morciano di Leuca Puglia 

This is the kind of place you can envision yourself along with your family and friends celebrate Holidays and Fun…all year long. This is among the few properties available anytime of the year and we at BeeYond Travel are so proud to offer you such place because we have seen it and we relived the atmosphere of milling the oil in the trappeti, ancient oil mills that surround the building. We have felt the strength of the Lecce stone of the fireplaces that are in the rooms. We perceived the skill of the sculptors who created the star vault of the breakfast room with that same Lecce stone. All this has the infinite power to bring you back in time where you can reconnect with your root, re-energize and be thankful for what we have.

With a humble heart, to our discerning travelers we say Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Traveling.

“Region of the Year” – An important recognition for our beautiful Puglia

However, receiving acknowledgments is always a pleasure.

And, if the award is the highly sought-after award Food & Travel Italy Reader Awards, awarded each year to the region that most amazed with its beauties and peculiarities readers of the international food and wine magazine “Food and Travel Italy”, then the satisfaction for we Puglia is double.

This is the reason that led readers to choose Puglia as Best Destination 2018:

“The breath is suspended at every glance: everything is harmonious splendor combined with flavors, aromas, essences that recall our beloved Italian territory. History, landscapes, nature, ancient villages that hold priceless heritage for humanity: Locorotondo, the Trulli of Alberobello, Ostuni, Lecce, the magnificent stretches of the Salento coast, the ancient farms. An imaginary but not imaginary itinerary, because the rocks are real, the architectural structures are presented in all their beauty, the nature decantes its mighty presence, the sea brings breaths of wind, the sun ripens vineyards and radiates the ancient olive groves : we are in Puglia and we would not want to be elsewhere. “

The award was accepted by the councilor for the tourism and cultural industry Loredana Capone in Cagliari during the award ceremony.
On this occasion, the Salento was also awarded as a territory of the year and Lecce as a 2018 destination.

Post-vacation syndrome? Come to Puglia!

It’s true, the infamous September has arrived. And as every year, the season of shorter days, the mornings in the office and the evenings in front of the televisionĀ to follow a TV series on Netflix is upon us.

The long walks on the beach, the sunset cocktails with friends, the tanning that makes us more beautiful, the nights that never end and the awakening the next day to have breakfast outside, maybe in one of the gardens of our luxury villas, they seem a distant memory.

Paraphrasing the Negramaro, historic Lecce music band, all these things are the sign of a summer that I wish would never end.

post vacation syndrome
Yet it is about to end. So no depression, but a lot of willpower to recover from the post-vacation syndrome.

We at BeeYond Travel want to give you some tips to overcome this sense of powerlessness in the face of the routine that resurfaces overwhelmingly in our lives:

1) Aim for a gradual adaptation and not be anxious to resume the rhythm in one day.
2) Have this thought in mind: “Summer holidays are over, but there are many weekends during the year to travel!”;
3) Try not to achieve all the objectives set during the month of September. There’s time;
4) Take care of yourself. How about starting a the gym also to relieve you from the few extra pounds gained over the holidays?
5) Pay attention to the diet and drink a lot;
6) Don’t let the traffic of the city destabilize your psychological balance: listen to music and relax.

And if you really do not like these tips, well, then come again to Puglia for a little more.

post vacation syndrome2
Here the still warm climate will allow you to go to the beach again and again. September weekends are ideal for enjoying our beaches and, moreover, this is the period of patronal festivals and village festivals. In the evening the streets are swarming with people and locals are open until late.
BeeYond Travel obviously will take care of the accommodation.

Think about it for a moment: September is a beautiful month after all. Post-vacation Syndrome apart, it is the month in which all plans are made, the month of committing to all promises. It is the month in which friends meet and the evenings are still long enough to avoid, at least for a while, hiding in the house.

And, on weekends, you could be in Puglia. In short, is there a better month than September?
