I would appreciate knowing what long term rentals are like in Lecce in historic district. I am looking for a 2 bedroom place with terrace. Grazie.

Hi There, I am visiting Puglia soon to consider if there is somewhere that suits me to live. I am moving from Brighton, UK and I work in the arts. The sea is important to me, as is architecture. I am trying to decide where to visit to find a friendly, open area that I could make a home in. As I am moving alone, as much as I love the countryside, I am conscious I don't want to isolate myself so a town by the sea is probably most ideal. Any suggestions of places for me to check out are greatly appreciated. Thank You, Laura

We are planning to move to Puglia as soon as we have sold our property in South-West France. We plan to live there all the year round and would like to be near to 'commerce' including a doctor and pharmacist and not too far from as good hospital. We speak some Italian and are working on this every day with Duolingo. I have visited Italy very many times. However, I should like to know something about banking and about whether I can continue to have my UK pensions paid directly into an Italian bank account or, indeed, whether this would be wise. We are used to all the charges mentioned above as they are similar in France and I doubt the bureaucracy could be worse. My husband is French and I have applied for nationality in addition to my British nationality. We plan not to buy for more than 140k, to purchase a bungalow, and possibly to rent before we buy (with our 3 cats). Any advice, please?

Thank you

Default General advice on moving to Puglia

Hello All,

My wife and I have a home in Liguria but as we get older we want to extend the summer and have been thinking about selling that property and moving to Puglia, with the view to full time retirement eventually. At the moment we only use that house between mid-May and Mid-Sep. We are 49 and 54 years old.

My wife met a friend last night who scared her by telling her horror stories of her friends experiences living in Puglia, they were:

1) Her house is so damp that in the winter months she has to raise the furniture off the floor - this to me sounded ludicrous, but if this is common issue with some forms of building, like Trulli, please let me know.

2) Her friends house was burgled and completely cleaned out, even though she had a security company. She said it was because she was not paying the mafia's security company and that when she switched to that company she has not been bothered since. Does this ring true, or did she just have a rubbish security company?

3) She said that her friend thought there is a general issue with the Mafia and mini Mafia in general in the area, is this true? People said this about where we live in LIguria, but we have found the people there super friendly and as long as your are careful, don't make assumptions, as with anywhere, we have had good experiences.

We are visiting Puglia in Oct and will be staying in an Airbnb for a week in the Carovigno area.

Thanks all for any replies.

Cheers, J&L.
