GREAT ESCAPES ~~ Puglia, Italy

ITALY’S SOUTHEAST COAST, with its fishing towns, rustic charm and limited development, may be the country’s most untouched destination — at least for now. More and more, foreigners are discovering the coast of Puglia, and Italians are showing an increased interest in the region, buying homes to serve as retreats from their primary residences in Milan and Rome. Puglia’s bucolic estates offer striking architecture and stylish interiors that offer a mix of antiques and contemporary art, while its beaches, unlike those of the rocky Amalfi Coast, are sandy and calm. Whether located a short drive from the Adriatic shore or tucked away amid olive groves, the regions vacation properties —- with their rooftop terraces, amply sized pools, and expansive outdoor areas —- all best enjoyed by large groups looking to discover Puglia for themselves.
