Puglia, ancient Apulia, is a land of sun, sea, vines, and olive groves. But it also has a wealth of built and cultural heritage that helps to make it one of the most exciting and unspoilt areas of Italy.

Our local area is in the most fascinating part of Puglia -the land of the trulli - between Alberobello, the capital of the trulli (one trullo, the plural is trulli), and the unique Itria Valley bounded by the towns of Locorotondo, Cisternino and Martina Franca.

With direct flights from London airports starting in 2004 there has never been a better time to take a holiday here or to move to this beautiful part of Italy.

Now Ryanair is flying to both Brindisi as well as Bari, almost all of the Salento peninsula is readily accessible, as well as the beautiful Itria Valley, the heart of the land of the trulli.

Follow the links left for lots more information on Puglia's towns and attractions. You will also find details of how to get to Puglia, what to do when holidaying in the Alberobello and Itria Valley area, a virtual tour of the local towns, and an introduction to Puglia's food and wines.
