Polignano a Mare, Puglia (southern Italy). What a beautiful town and surrounding area…

Recently I stayed 16 days down in Puglia, on the east coast of the south of Italy, in the area of Bari. From Amalfi this was only a 300 km drive.

Services moves to purchase a property

We have recently been studying the property market in the Amalfi coast area. To be more precise, inland near the coast where the prices are more reasonable, given that we are not looking for a holiday home with sea view.
