Hi from Lucretia and Bob

Recommended Posts

My wife Lucretia and I fell in love with Italy on our honeymoon in 2007. We have toured the country extensively since then and in 2017 paid our first visit to Puglia, staying in a Trullo just outside Ceglia Messapica. The simplicity of life, warmth of the local people, fantastic summer weather and the amazing local food and wine made us seriously consider a future life in Puglia. And so in early 2018 when the Channel 4 program A Place in the Sun advertised for people interested in buying a property in Italy we jumped at the chance to register our interest. In June 2018 we flew out to Puglia with the Channel 4 crew and had an amazing week culminating in the purchase of our perfect Italian home which we are currently renovating ready for our retirement and eventual move out to our favourite country in the world. If you would like to see more of our journey before the program is aired here is a link to a private web site we have built to record our adventure:

Lucretia has just found the Puglia Posse site which is amazing and we are looking forward to making new friends on here and perhaps meeting up with some of the contributors when we are out in the region.

Interesting! We love a Place in the Sun so look forward to seeing your episode when it airs. The house looks lovely.

We are coming to Ceglie to complete purchase of our little casolare in two weeks time. Can't wait!

Our Casolare is about 5 miles out of Ceglie.

Maybe see you around sometime.

Kim ;-)

We look forward to sharing and enjoying your Puglian property adventure. We didn't have the luxury of a Channel 4 crew to keep us grounded. We had to go on blind faith, buckets of trust and gut instinct but it worked out well for us. You're going to love it!

Thanks, it hasn't been without its stressy moments but we too went with our guts and hearts and have found our dream home.... just hope the politicians back home don't mess it up for all of us!

Both of us are actually dreading it! Neither of us have social media accounts and are generally quite private people.... perhaps we didn't think this through!! 

DVDs is an interesting one.. we are trying to figure out a way to record it so we can leave a DVD at the house if and when we rent it out (in case anyone wanted to watch it). I think we will draw a line at t shirts though ;)
