We're planning to spend August through the end of October in Puglia this year. We're experienced independent travellers in Italy, so we know how crazy it gets in August. That said, we're thinking about finding a small apartment in Locorotondo for our "home base". I've already collected information from the usual sources on the internet (Slow Travel, TripAdvisor, etc.). I'd appreciate any other suggestions, advice or references. Grazie.
