The advantage to stay in a village is to be able to socialize with Italian neighbours, to walk to the café and buy a newspaper and a cup of coffee in the morning and having all amenities within reach day time and night time. The town houses often come with a garden and roof terrace. and its fascination to open the simple door from the street - and inside almost like a little palace with a garden!
In Sternatina and Martigignano to the south of Lecce antique Greek is still spoken by the villagers.
Maglie is like a mini Lecce and with many fine buildings. Muoro Leccese is smaller and also represent a small town/village with a fine architectural history.

WHY BUY IN APULIA?
Apulia has until recently been called the hidden treasure of Italy, unknown to most tourists who come & stay in Rome, Florence, Venice and at the Italian Riviera. However, all this is rapidly changing because of massive investments in the infrastructure, such as the improved motorways, enlarged airports and the introduction of low cost airlines such as Ryanair and Easyjet. The property prices are low in Apulia and low means value for money at bargain prices for the international buyers. We see more and more foreign visitors coming to Apulia and in our opinion investments will show good growth in value because of the increased demand. Also from north Italians as Apulia has become the most popular holiday destination for Italians. But rest assure, no tourist villages will ever be built because in Apulia the cost line is protected and people are against modern developments which do not fit into this historical landscape. Therefore, with increased demand for a fixed and limited number of properties prices are bound to rise.
