My partner is keen on trying Puglia, and she has suggested Puglia as an option...
The suggestion is to rent a trulli, any help, guidance or recomendations much appreciated ...
I've been to Puglia quite a few times and it has always been a little dream of mine to rent a trullo so I'm a bit biased.
I really love the trulli district around Alberobello, Martina Franca and Locorotundo. The people are very friendly and the scenery is qiute dramatically different from the north of italy. A lot of it reminded me a little of Greece, with the white-washed houses etc.
Further south you have Otranto with a fine castle and the beaches in Puglia are without doubt the finest in all of Italy. They are usually long sandy beaches with crystal clear water. Lecce is very beautiful as well.
Southern Italy is a poorer than the north and you can see it to an extent but Puglia has escaped some of the worse excesses seen in Calabria, Basilicata and Sicily.
I don't really know what specific information you want so if there is something more detailed then I can see if I can answer. Don't forget that Puglia has the longest coastline in Italy so the north of the region is very different from the south. I'm assuming that as you are mentioning the trulli you are thinking of basing yourselves in or around the Bari borders in the interior.
I am looking at the trullis around Locorotundo. My partner is keen on Greece, me Italy and after 10 visits to the land of the olive, Puglia is the compromise. The region appears to be quite accesible, Bari and Brindisi airports, and the trullis seem to be located on farmland areas in the interior of the region.
If you travel to the beaches are they easily accesible ?
Whereabouts did you stay and what was the accomodation like ?
Would you recomend the region to a first time traveller ?
Any personal recomendations likes or dislikes ?
Many thanks ...
