Bari being the Commercial capital city with 250 000 inhabitants offers the best shopping, a grand opera house, called the Petruzzelli teatro; a large medical city centre with many museums. Just north of Bari lies a little town called Giovinazzo a true gem, right by the sea. Further north is Molfetta Outlet, a famous shopping galleria and 20 minutes further is Traini, a sophisticated town with a beautiful half moon bay & marina. Continue north to Castel del Monte, which is the mystical castle built by Frederic II in the 14th Century.

LIFE STYLE AND CULTURE:
The Italian lifestyle means many things but especially socialising; the home is used for sleeping and breakfasts, the Italians go out for enjoyments and dining. Based in Canale di Pirro there are so much you can experience, like early morning markets in the small towns. music festivals, religious carnivals, the beach life, historical tours in the main towns, cooking classes, learning a bit Italian at language schools, dining at the many country and sea side restaurants, night clubbing at the beach clubs of Capitolo.
As Apulia is a peninsula and surrounded by the two seas- the Adriatic in the northeast and the Ionic in the southwest – water sports dominate in the area; sailing, yachting, water skiing, kite surfing, swimming & beach life. Golf is available with five good courses and San Domenico in Capitolo (20 minutes drive) is world class ( PGA 2014 Challenge Final). Tennis (there is one tennis club in the village centre of Selva di Fasano) horseback riding, hiking and bicycle tours are other options for the active minded. Squash clubs are located in Bari, Bitonto and other places.
Being south, Apulia has warmer weather than Northern Italy and even in the”winter months” of December to February the average number of sun hours per day is 4 and in June-August 10-11 sun hours per day! This means you can enjoy a long season of nice weather in Apulia. When you plan to buy a holiday home in Apulia think of that you will spend a lot more time outside than in the inside compared to at home. Therefore you will need plenty of terrace space, pergolas etc at your Apulian property and also cooking facilites outside is very practical.
The water temperature in beginning of May is in average 19 degrees, up to 27 degrees in August/September and 19 degrees in November. This means you & family will spend time at the beach. Where ever you are in Apulia you can reach the beaches within 30 minutes!
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.
