The Puglia/Molise region
Puglia could almost be described as the area that time has passed by. Hundreds of miles of open countryside filled with Olive groves and just about every other fruit tree bulging with fresh fruit and every acre of ground full of fresh produce.
From small hamlets, to small villages, to small towns, to larger towns and cities, each unique with its own personal history and traditions, each claiming to supply the freshest and most mouth watering food imaginable, when in fact they are all supplying local delicacies unique to that particular village or town.
The sea coast with plenty of bays and beaches attracts everyone to the water which is warm, crystal clear and unspoilt, drive to find a spot you like, park up, grab your cool box and beach 'toys' then walk through the nearest dune or track and wow the Adriatic Sea - beautiful.
With so many historic, picturesque or just quaint places to see within easy reach of your holiday home it would be difficult to say which you 'MUST' see.
Many day trips are possible :
Alberobello, Cisternino, Locorotondo : The trulli-area, see the wonderful 'trulli scrumptious houses' find out their history?
Fasano, Matera (to see how people lived and still live in caves cut into the hillside, Ostuni (fantastic when its lit up a night) Mesagne, Lecce, (at the end of the 'Appian' way and known as the Venice of the south) all depict southern italy and its people who are lovely.
Our town San Vito De Normanni :It is said that our own Saint Vito defeated the Normans and sent them packing. Brinidisi the bigger sister is full of shops and amenities and its great port with its direct ferry crossing to Greece, is steeped in history and in ancient times is where every Army crossed to battle in the Crusades.
You could even take the 4 hour drive, stay overnight and visit Pompeii the buried and ruined Roman City located near Naples.
Puglia, is steeped in a veritable kaleidoscope of history and traditions. Over hundreds of years it has been invaded many times and each time a little culture and tradition has been left behind, which in turn has created such a diverse and beautiful legacy for us all to enjoy today.
