WHAT THE PRESS SAY

Here's what some of the press have to say about this site and Discovery Puglia travel services:

The alberghi diffusi model is revitalising dwindling communities across Italy by repurposing their unused buildings into ‘scattered hotels’. Our writer lives like a local in a few of these hamlet gems.

This week we’re in Puglia, also known as Apulia, one of Italy’s less well-known holiday destinations. With its olive groves, whitewashed towns and unforgiving heat it can seem more Greek than Italian ...

Everywhere you go in Puglia food is a big deal and one of my most memorable sights are the lovely ladies hand-rolling fresh pasta in the streets. They’re making ‘orecchiette’, or “little ears”, and they sell this fresh pasta to local restaurants.

Today I want to tell you the story of an Italian guy, ambitious and determined to change his life. To have an entrepreneurial idea is quite easy, but to put it into practice is a completely different story: it takes courage and motivation.

And, for this reason, it gives me great pleasure to tell you the story of Concezio and Discovery Puglia.

“If you’re planning on visiting Italy this year then I’ll hazard a guess that you’re probably considering the Amalfi Coast for its stunning coastline, Tuscany for its countryside, Sicily, for the food or Sardinia for the incredible beaches. Now what if I was to say to you there is a region of Italy that offers all of these things and more, all rolled into one?"

Anyway, back to the food for a moment. Lunch had been arranged today at a local restaurant in the picturesque seaside town of Polignano a Mare. As you can imagine, with a job like mine, I get to eat out at a lot of fine restaurants all over the world but I can genuinely say that the meal I had today has to rank in my all-time top ten!
