Here the spontaneous architecture of the dry stone buildings evolves into the much more complex, but still sober and linear, of the white farms and holiday homes, which from the mid-nineteenth century were spreading on the hills of the area. This allows you to make all kinds of excursions, both on foot and by bicycle.
Roads are not the only way to reach an interesting place, they are in themselves interesting places. Therefore the first piece of advice that you will receive is “do not hurry!” Perhaps you might see less, but without a doubt the places that you do come across will give you time to catch up, to get in contact with yourself and create an impression. This is, in short, Domenico's recommendation for the way to see Le Puglie. This is because Puglia comprises of at least three distinct parts. It is important to realize that these are not just defined by its administrative borders but also its geography and the history that has been played out within its confines. Therefore, depending on each person's interests and preferences the day's itinerary can be chosen - from a busy and culturally inspired visit to a town of artistic interest or a Romanesque cathedral, to a more relaxing and refreshing day spent at one of the many seaside locations with their beaches and ports. And for those who love to walk or to go for a bike ride certainly there is no lack of longer or shorter routes depending on how far your legs can carry you and, of course, the weather.
Bikes are available for guests to use free of charge. Venturing out along the country lanes which surround Serragambetta and cycling through the olive groves lined with dry stone walls is a truly satisfying experience. And for the really fit why not take a bike ride right down to the sea! Once back, quench your thirst with a nice long drink made with our homemade sour cherry cordial.
