A very good resource article for anyone considering living in Puglia as I do. I felt all firsthand information and comments offered were reliable. While I know the word is out on Puglia’s charms, I hope we are NOT the next Tuscany. Being too popular and too discovered often brings irreparable changes to the character that brings one here in the first place. It calls to mind a FB group called with tongue in cheek “Non Venite in Puglia” (Don’t Come to Puglia) that undermines this heading with alluring photos of all the places you speak of in your article. Thankfully the brief copy is only in Italian which I hope limits its marketing potential globally. Again, I enjoyed your article on Puglia.
