Dear Concezio,
Apologies for delay in replying to your email but as you can appreciate it has been busy on my return to work. I did not want to rush off an answer as our experience in Puglia was so positive from start to finish.
The transfer from the airport was seamless. The hotel Corte Altavilla was excellent. The staff were friendly and helpful. The restaurant was excellent. I am a vegetarian who does not eat fish and mentioned this on the first night.
I was given choices and did not have to eat the same dish twice and when I turned up the second night I was recognised and offered different options. This was the theme of our visit .
We found EVERYONE we met from staff, to strangers helpful and wanting to ensure we were happy with our experience. We even got on the wrong train and the conductor on the train ensured we got off at the right station to return and escorted us to the right train.
The trip to the cellar was great and Vito very friendly and informative. He even spoke to our driver who very quickly agreed to take us to Alberobello though it was not on the schedule.
The cooking class was fantastic Maria and her colleague were very welcoming and explained everything and it was so delightful to sit down and eat in an Italian home. We were able to ask loads of questions about the area and way of life. We got a taxi to Pugliana si Mare (may be a misspelling) and it was a highlight. What a place. From start to finish it was a great break. Very relaxing indeed and am looking forward to my next visit already.
Many thanks for checking in and am glad to have the opportunity to give such positive feedback.
