@  Ray49 : (29 October 2014 - 11:54 AM) Hello people out there. My name is Ray and my wife is called Gaynor. We have bought a place in Oria and have been having it renovated etc. We want to rent it from May 2015. Is there anybody out there that might be interested in Care taking/Managing the property for us, as we are resident in the UK? If you are interested or know of anyone who may be please would you get in touch via this web site in the first instance. We could communicate via our own emails after that.
@  JuliaS : (27 October 2014 - 10:03 PM) Oria Castle tour this Saturday. See details in  Festival and events section below.
@  Rebecca : (27 October 2014 - 08:31 PM) Niki, be careful buying wood from a truck on the side of the road. Our first winter here we did that and ended up with new (very smoky) wood. Best to get a recommendation!!! We haven't found a reliable person yet, so let me know if you get some good seasoned wood.
@  Niki : (26 October 2014 - 01:36 PM) @smb have pm you. Maybe meet up in the week. Ta
@  smb : (24 October 2014 - 10:45 AM) Hi Niki, welcome to Puglia, we got here in March! We live between Martina and Ceglie too, not too far from the quarry. Maybe able to help with dvd's and wood, pm us if you fancy a coffee.. Sharron and Martin
@  Niki : (24 October 2014 - 09:26 AM) Hi ��. All, has anyone got any English speaking Dvds please, I could borrow, for these Darker nights .... Preferably closer to Martina / Ceglie area ... Grazie. Mille
@  JackiandKevin : (24 October 2014 - 09:03 AM) to nickandadelaide. not able to pm u. ?your box full
@  nickandadelaide : (24 October 2014 - 07:32 AM) Does anyone know Shirley Ellis?  TfL have contacted me as they have some lost property of hers left somewhere on the London transport network.  If so, please PM me
@  Billy : (21 October 2014 - 06:19 PM) Send me a PM to organise Raye.
@  Billy : (21 October 2014 - 06:18 PM) 10 euros , come and take your pick Ciderapple Raye!
@  ciderapple : (20 October 2014 - 08:25 PM) message for Billy.... do you still have glass blocks that you would like to get rid of? we are after 12 clear/colour mix if you do how much do you want for them? thanks Raye
@  Billy : (19 October 2014 - 06:24 PM) Anyone lit their stove yet?   Really warm this October, lovin' it.
@  clint : (18 October 2014 - 12:41 PM) It is not just a matter of x amount for 1quintale it depends what kind of wood it is. Olive is usually the most most expensive nearer to winter it will cost around 13/14€ x 100kg pine is the cheapest 8€ or so per 100kg
@  Niki : (17 October 2014 - 06:44 PM) We didn't get the amount on truck as literaly just asked as passing. Will remember next time for amount. Thanks
@  Billy : (17 October 2014 - 05:24 PM) How much wood was on the truck Niki?
@  nickandadelaide : (17 October 2014 - 02:47 PM) Niki, I would ask a neighbour where they get theirs.  For that kid of money you could buy 30+ quintale and have a labourer chop it for you.  I paid €13 per quintale on pallets.  Most people are paying €10-€12 per quintale.
@  Niki : (17 October 2014 - 09:40 AM) Is there a local, nearish Martina, place to get wood for a small burner. Asked a guy in a truck with wood cut to small size, he quoted €450.00. Is this average or is there a better place/person. Thanks
@  Admin - Colleen : (15 October 2014 - 11:21 AM) Have a good harvest BTW The P's this year. I have a rotating crop however, one year on, one year off.
@  Admin - Colleen : (15 October 2014 - 10:20 AM) Apologies for any delays in advance if I don't get back to anyone with regards pms or new members or questions...not only is internet down but my time is justly consumed by veterinary appointments at the mo!
@  The P's : (14 October 2014 - 05:00 AM) Thanks for the info. Will be over mid Nov to do some picking and also to finally sort out some building work but it is the usual scenario akin to wadding through treacle to get quotes in etc. Ahhh Puglia that idyllic love hate relationship!

We would greatly appreciate any assistance anyone could provide regarding finding a sponsor, be it yourself or someone else, that could assist in this regard. We would strongly consider relocating there b...
