Giardini Pistola offers visitors a day out experience to be remembered – whether to simply to walk around each of the 6 terraces over 2 hectares and enjoy the planting, the flowers, the herbs and the climber covered pergolas.

Or to bring the kids and let them play in the shallow water canal where the water gently flows from the outside to the centre constantly. Or whether it is to come to one of our events and have a picnic on the grass amphitheatre under the early evening stars.

Giardini Pistola is located in the centre of the beautiful and unspoilt Canale Di Pirro valley in the Valle D’Itria, Puglia.

At the Giardini Pistola Farmshop you can also buy organic olive oil, award winning wines from the best local producers at reasonable prices, gorgeous handmade soaps, fresh cut lavender, room diffusers, honey from the farms own beehives and many other artisenal products of Puglia.

Our intention is to create a unique place which all the family can visit and enjoy. A different experience to the beach experience. One that is calm, relaxing, serene and beautiful. Creating memories that will stay with you whether you live in Puglia or are visiting.

We look forward to seeing at Giardini Pistola – the gardens and the shop are open 10am to 8:30pm everyday during the summer.
