Planning a week trip to Salento 25/5/13-1/6/13: 2 adults 4 kids. off season in Puglia. half term in UK. 10 year wedding anniversary after having got married in Lecce in 2003. :) Been to Salento area a couple of other times but generally on Gallipoli side and only staying with friends/ B&B/ hotel, never rental accomodation. Now want to rent an appartment/ villa in a nice town/ village with direct access to beach, ideally over on the other eastern side of Salento. Will probably hire a car anyway, but would rather be able to walk to beach/ shops/ restaurant. Trying to decide between Otranto, San Foca or Torre dell' Orso - or any better suggestions? Have been to Otranto a few times, but didn't notice any obvious sandy beaches within the historic centre - am i cieccho? Never been to San Foca or Torre dell Orso, but am getting reasonable quotes for accomodation there. Just not so crazy on it if total ghost town then. Would probably plump for Otranto and accept having to drive to beach. (could still walk to/ from from shops/ restaurants/ harbour). All advice welcome in English or Italian! Grazie.
