The Ionian Islands FAQs
Q. Do we need to rent a car?
A. For the majority of our villas, which are not easily accessible by any other means, we strongly advise you rent a car. This is also the case if you are intending to tour around and see the sights: public transport is often not terribly reliable or available. If you prefer not to drive, take a look at our selection of villas within walking distance of shops and restaurants.
Q. Do you arrange flights or car hire?
A. We do not arrange flights or car hire. Our site does, however, have a definitive list of flights to Puglia from all over the world with links through to the various airlines. For car hire, we have a link through to a car hire search engine, which will help you find the best prices and deals available.
Q. Where can we fly to/from?
A. At the moment Puglia has two international airports in Bari and Brindisi. There are dozens of direct flights from all over Europe. For more information see our definitive list of flights to Puglia
Q. If I am looking at a villa in the south, could I still fly into Bari in the north or vice-versa?
A. Yes! Bari airport is a maximum of 3/3.5 hours' drive from our villas in the extreme south of Puglia.
Q. What's driving in Puglia like?
A. In the larger cities, such as Bari, driving can sometimes be a little challenging, as in most large, busy cities around the world. It is not dangerous, however, partly because the traffic rarely moves fast enough to be so! In the smaller towns and when travelling around Puglia driving is relatively stress free!
Q. How safe is Puglia?
A. Puglia is a very safe place! Larger cities, such as Bari are fine as long as you take the normal precautions. In the smaller towns muggings or bag-snatching are virtually unheard of.
