“Our beach” ….. a hop, skip and a jump from Casa Mare. A long narrow strip, with no amenities, between Torre San Gennaro and Lendinuso, with sandy bays either end. This beach is constantly changing, sometimes with long expanses of sand, sometimes a mixture of sand, shale and pebbles and sometimes with very high tides leaving only a thin band of stones at the very top of the beach.
Puglia, perfect for vacations, rapidly becoming one of the must-go holiday destinations, but still remains unspoilt. It has also become a popular relocation home for many ex-pats. Why? It is less expensive than Tuscany and other Italian hot spots. It’s about as far south you can go on the Italian mainland, and the climate reflects its location. Mild winters, although we do occasionally see a smattering of snow, spring comes early to Puglia. From April life outdoors begins again and goes on through to late November.
Reminiscent of Italy many years ago, the pace of life is still relatively slow, life is for living. What’s for lunch or dinner may be one of the most important conversations of the day. There are large cities where you may find a noisy night-life but the charm of Puglia is in the small villages and towns, the warmth of the locals and the warmth of the midday sun.
