Carovigno

The white cobbled streets and historic buildings of Carovigno nestle on a hill, below the majestic Norman castle at its summit. This traditional town is a maze of old streets and alleyways with rustic, picture-postcard scenes around every corner. Carovigno has a rich and varied history, having been ruled by many different people over the years including Romans, Bourbons and Byzantines, all of whom have left their mark on the town. The Adriatic coast is just a short drive from Carovigno, making it the perfect base from which to explore the many beautiful coves and beaches nearby.

Natural areas of beauty

Torre Guaceto is a protected Marine reserve just 15 minutes drive from Carovigno and Ostuni. Here the landscape is a beautiful combination of Mediterranean olive groves, rocky cliffs, sandy beaches and wetlands rich in wildlife. No motorised water sports are allowed within the protected area but there are plenty of other activities to enjoy, including hiking trails, cycle routes, snorkelling and scuba diving. If you are really lucky you might even catch a glimpse of some Loggerhead turtles or dolphins!
