Vieste villas Holiday rentals - villas & apartments to rent in Vieste, Gargano Peninsula
Vieste is a beautiful town perched on the Gargano peninsula cliffs within the protected area of the National Park 180kms north of Bari. Whitewashed houses, mini piazzas, stone stairways and narrow alleyways are what you will find when wandering around this intriguing Puglian treasure that time forgot. The old town is not to be missed and is full of cafes and restaurants with alfresco dining that come to life following the evening passeggiata. Just a few minutes walk from the town is the local white sandy beach backed by soaring cliffs. Its known as Pizzomunno beach after the rock monolith that rises up from the shore.
Vieste is the perfect place to discover and explore Puglia's cuisine which on the Gargano Peninsula is characterised by fresh grilled fish, fresh vegetables ripened under a fierce sun and handmade pasta and cheese. Peschici, like the rest of Puglia also offers its visitors the experience of tasting some of the finest full bodied wines in Italy - many of which never reach shop shelves as they are for local consumption only! The northern Puglia grape used in most of the reds is Nero di Troia.
