On this suggested itinerary, stay in a rustic farmhouse in the coastal town of Savelletri.

Trip Overview

Depart from Dublin to Bari.

On arrival, pick up your pre-arranged rental car and drive to your luxury villa near the shores of Savelletri. Your home for the next seven nights, check out the expansive aromatic gardens and luxury facilities of your villa.

Live it up at the private beach club.

Located at the nearby shores, lounge under a parasol while sipping on a signature cocktail at the exclusive club. For even more privacy, dip in the heated waters of your villa’s outdoor pool, grab a drink from your poolside bar and kick back in a lounger.

What people are saying

Aisling and her team are just outstanding at what they do. They have an incredible knowledge of the travel industry and I have had the best experience with OROKO Travel. From the first phone call to enquire about a holiday to the call we received after our holiday, I cannot say enough about this company. They are truly outstanding. I really look forward to working with them again in 2022 and hopefully for many years to come. There are no travel specialists like OROKO. 5 stars, just fantastic!
