- Direct access to the beach on a 15-hectare estate
- 15 kilometres from Lecce
- Restaurant-pizzeria and beach bar with takeaway
Right by a beach with direct access to the sands sounds just spiffing to us for a sunny Italian hol – and how fortuitous to be only 15 kilometres from the Baroque city of Lecce too.
This is the scene at Camping Torre Rinalda in Puglia, a site of around 37 acres about 20 minutes' drive from Lecce and about 50 kilometres away from both Otranto and Gallipoli. The team say it's a foodie's paradise here too: the restaurant-pizzeria on site has an a la carte menu specialising in Salentino-style cuisine alongside traditional Italian dishes. (We rather like the sound of the beach bar with takeaway too.)
We're fairly sure you'll also like the two pools at Torre Rinalda too – one for sprogs and one for grownups – and the other extensive facilities including a playground, a football pitch, two tennis courts and a sports court.
During the summer season, entertainment, a kids' club, sports and tournaments are organised by Torre Rinalda's multilingual team.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

The Baroque city of Lecce 15km from Camping Torre Rinalda has heaps to see, such as the Basilica di Santa Croce, the Messapicha-Roman tombs, Sant'Oronzo Square and the Roman amphitheatre.
Otranto, 50km away, is also worth a day trip for the Aragonian walls, another cathedral, the Castello Aragonese and the old streets of the Old Town.
Also 50km away is Gallipoli, a small fishing port that's now a big tourist pull – once you see its setting you'll see why – and well worth the trip to see its Angevine-Aragonese Castle, medieval city walls, Baroque cathedral of Sant'Agata and its harbour.
If you prefer to get active in Italy, windsurfing and diving are both available locally.
