What do I need to know about living in Puglia?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Puglia, they said:

"Puglia is a beautiful region in the south of Italy, and is a popular destination for retirees. Before retiring in Puglia, expats should research the cost of living and the availability of healthcare services. It is also important to consider the language barrier, as English is not widely spoken in the region. Expats should also be aware of the local culture and customs, and be prepared to adapt to the slower pace of life in Puglia. Finally, expats should research the local housing market and the availability of rental properties," wrote one member in Puglia.
