    So I'm looking at a week vacation in Pulgia. Love the area , I've been there a few times, plain hotels or B&Bs

    This time I'm looking for a really nice place with a pool , near the beach or at least with an association to a beach club for 3 adults.
    On line searches yield a few properties at the 5 star level . Unfortunately they are not many that show up , one in particular comes up booked and another comes in at $11,000 / night !

    I'm thinking I'm really not getting the true information on these properties via the web . I feel that either contacting them directly or having a rep in the area is better.

    I could call each property but I think my being American , in the states some questions may get lost in translation.

    Therefore I'm guessing travel agency may be the best way to go .

    I searched on line for travel agencies , but it seems there are a lot of websites that host individuals that offer their services. I was more thinking of a firm that is in this business , that could provide a a spectrum of choices and daily excursions and itineraries.

    Any suggestions?

    Is there a better way to search or is that it?

    Anyone know of a reputable travel agency that serves that area?.

    Or do I resolve to make the reservations myself?

    Any suggestion is appreciated.


    Thanks in advance

    Look at the small luxury hotels website. www.slh.com and the leading hotels of the world website. www.lhw.com. The first shows 4 Puglia hotels the seconds shows 2. Maybe one of them will work. I’ve found good hotels with these sites before.

    Oh man! So jealous. That's where part of my family is from, and one of my favorite places. It's been a few years since I've been there. No tips to add unfortunately, but wishing you the best on your trip. Have fun!

    Thanks , but turn of events , kids & wife didn't want to do Italy as much as I , so we are doing Lisbon for a week.

    I will go to Puglia in Sept alone or with a friend .

    btw , no rooms at Borgo whole summer, I bet need to reserve a year in advance ...
