A WEEK IN PUGLIA.

I do love to travel to exotic destinations, but sometimes it’s nice to holiday closer to home. Italy’s my favourite European country and I’ve visited numerous times. I adore the historic cities, the fabulous landscapes of the Tuscan countryside and the sensational coastal scenery around the Amalfi Coast. And of course, the food isn’t half bad either!

I’ve wanted to visit Puglia for many years – it’s a less-visited region situated in Italy’s heel and has a great deal to offer the curious traveller. Of course, there’s a spectacular coastline with lovely beach resorts, but there are picturesque historic towns and villages dotted all around the area, and the region's famous for its cute, distinctive trulli houses and the food is supposed to be amazing. So, when I decided I needed a taste of la dolce vita in June, this is where I decided to go.

We’re staying for a week in a lovely 3-bedroom converted trullo villa set in the countryside, but close to some of the places we’ll have on our hit list like Alberobello, Polignano a Mare, Ostuni and Monopoli. We’ll also drive to Matera which is where the opening scene of the latest James Bond film "No Time to Die" was shot – although it’s not officially in Puglia, it’s not far away and is certainly worth a visit. I’m really looking forward to the trip.
