About +39 392.6216450 - info@stayciao.com | who we are, what we do

Ciao, I am Fabio, a realtor living and working between Rome and Puglia, Southern Italy. I own ThePuglia Immobiliare SRL, a real estate agency which offers properties for sale and for rent in some of the best italian destinations. I was born in Guagnano, a small town near the beautiful and baroque Lecce, at the earth of Salento peninsula (the southern part of Puglia). After my bachelor degree in Communication Science at the University of Lecce and my master degree in Political Science at the University of Milan, I moved to discover Europe and settled in the cold Finland for a specialization in Mass Communication and Journalism at the University of Tampere. Then, I came back to Milan working in an internet company and later to Puglia working like internet marketing consultant and blogger.

ThePuglia – Travel, House, Experience is my business project into the real estate and tourism sectors. I play the guitar, I write, I like to travel, I like wine & food too. I like the masserie (farmhouses) in the countryside. A day, I’d like to restore an ancient masseria with charme and style and to start my own accomodation activity for tourists and travellers coming from all the world in search of relax, italian countrylife, wellness. In the meantime, I can tell to you everything about Rome and Puglia, I can guide you in renting your holiday home here and more.

And now, … Welcome on www.StayCiao.com, the website of our real estate agency in Italy: ThePuglia Immobiliare SRL. Our registered office is in Salento – Southern Puglia. See our exact location on Google Map, click here
