The virtually undiscovered region of Puglia/Apulia in Southern Italy is rural with historic towns perched on the top of the many hills, painted white to reflect the glistening sun. The sun in July & August can be very strong but with the weather pleasant from May to November there is plenty of time to explore this beautiful region.
Puglia is Italy’s largest olive oil producing region with olive trees in every garden and field, some easily 500 years old. Every town has a market day selling locally produces goods from fresh fruit & vegetables, cheeses & meats, to clothing & shoes, a bargain to be had by all.
It is easy to see why Puglia is now becoming popular as a holiday destination and many of the tradition houses have been renovated and are now beautiful villas with swimming pools.
