Very nice article about Puglia and Salento (one needs to master German though). We are happy to be mentioned in the best tips and addresses, so are keen to tell. Annette Rübesamen: “Apulien sei die neue Toskana, hört man immer wieder: Jede Menge Olivenöl und Wein, rustikale Küche, hübsche Städtchen und die schönsten Immobilien”, or in English “Apulia is the new Tuscany, we hear saying over and over again: lot’s of olive oil and wine, rustic cuisine, lovely towns and beautiful properties”. And much more!
A refreshing update on some of Puglia’s best beach destinations on CNN travel, mentioning Gallipoli and Porto Selvaggio (that’s actually Nardò!) on the Ionian coastline. We certainly would add Punta della Suina and Baia Verde south of Galipolli, and Torre Colimena north of Nardò, where a small wooden path brings you to an amazing sandy beach surrounded by dunes and a salt lake “Salina dei Monaci” attracting flocks of Flamingos. Every season has it’s magic.
