Pretty Puglia: Sun, Sea, Snow

Generally people come to Puglia for its outstanding natural beauty, crystal clear blue oceans, of which it boasts two; Adriatic and Ionian, fabulous fresh food and unique towns and cities, and of course, the warm weather.  However, winter in Pugila can be a bit nippy and this week has been exceptionally cold, with freezing temperatures, blizzards and localised snow.

However, Puglia is still pretty, even in these adverse weather conditions and I wanted to share with you just how stunning Puglia is, even in the winter.
