Guestbook comments from the owner

Received via email from the guest:

We had a fantastic holiday in Trullo di Sotto. The house itself is super and the pool is great – the kids were in it all day while the grown-ups enjoyed the sun-loungers.

They even provided some fantastic good wine at our arrival in the house. We spent most of our days in the house eating lunch at home, and ate out mostly every night. The fantastic produce available in the local shops, allowed us to have many nice lunches at the house. We were met professionally at our arrival and overall got great service and were given lots of good tips throughout our stay. They also took us to see an olive oil factory, great fun for big and small. They even arranged an evening where the Italian “Mamma” came and made food for us at the house. And it included teaching the children how to make homemade pasta – very popular with the kids. On one occasion the biggest girls went horse-back riding, which was also a big success.

The house turned out to be perfect for a party of 4 adults and 4 children, as the two smallest kids slept in the living room on the couch. We got good information about the place beforehand, containing many good ideas and very good descriptions of everything.

This is really a place we would want to visit again, and can really recommend it to everyone. Our only concern is that it will be difficult to find it available once everyone discovers how great it is…

Beautiful property and stunning location

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 5 adults and 2 small (under age of 5) children and had a week's holiday in this trulli in early October. We all had a lovely relaxing time with the children being occupied by the pool, large garden area and very friendly and patient dog and cat from the local farm. /it met all our needs and more and we would definitely recommend it. It was also really helpful to have on hand the property manager who was really friendly and helpful about what to do/visit with young children and good quality restaurants.

Wonderful

  • 4 of 5

Our second time in lovley Puglia and Trullo de Sotto. We are in love with the surroundings and all the nice places we can visit in the area. The property is very well maintained and we got good information in advance and during our stay.

We had about 40 degrees and without air conditioning it became hot. Some of the rooms in the house need air conditioning. But it`s not that often it gets so hot during summer. We would love to return!

Owner's Response: I am very happy to hear you enjoyed the property and the surrounding area. As you experienced a unusually ferocious and quite out of the ordinary heatwave this summer, I am sorry to hear you found yourself missing an air-con. Usually the stone trulli are able to keep a decent indoor temperature, even if the temperatures are soaring, as long as you keep doors and windows shut. But with degrees between 40 and 50 degrees, I can understand this might be difficult. Thank you again for staying with us and we hope to be seeing you again.

Beautiful Trullo in rural Puglia

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay, the Trullo has been decorated beautifully. We loved the different seating areas outside and the pool. We, as 8 adults, felt that there was plenty of room. Both Nina and Angelita were very helpful and made our stay seamless. I would just note the wifi was slightly dodgy but I think that comes with the location and being in a bit of a dip in the valley, it meant that we actually switched off though! Perfect stay and we hope to return!

Owner's Response: Dear Sophie, Great to hear that you all had a good time and also that you found the property spacious for 8 adults :-). Like you guessed, getting a good internet connection is tricky in many parts of rural Italy, including ours, so unfortunately the connections will be a little slow and unstable at times. We are working on getting a new solution, but until then I am delighted to hear you enjoyed some offline-time too :-). We would love to have you come back stay with us! Best, Nina

Magical place in wonderful surroundings - pure relaxation

  • 5 of 5

The trullo is extremely tastefully decorated and tucked away amongst olive trees. It's quiet, totally private and has a lovely pool. The trullo is very well furnished and the two pergolas are peaceful havens. Nina was very quick getting back to us when we enquiried about booking and gave us a lot of information about the area. The trullo is a five minute drive from the nearest little town and 15mn from Ostuni. We can't recommend this property highly enough. It's picture perfect and genuinely idyllic.

Lovely Trulli in beautiful and relaxing surroundings

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a wonderful week at this lovely property in May. The house has everything we needed both indoors and out, with fantastic shaded areas by the pool and house and panoramic views of olive groves carpeted in wild flowers.

Nearby Casalini (5min drive or 30min walk) has some useful mini-markets, delicious wine shop and a great little restaurant and pizza place. The surrounding towns in the Itria Valley are great to explore and the beautiful beaches almost empty in May.

The owners were very quick to respond to any queries before we went and we were met on arrival at the nearest large town Cisternino to show us the way.

Highly recommended.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful week at Trulli di Sotto. It is a beautiful place, tastefully decorated and very well equipped with everything you could possibly need and all spotlessly clean.

Nina was quick to reply to any queries during the booking process and gave us much information to help with our holiday. Also, Angelita, our contact whilst out there was fantastic, friendly and very helpful. She made booking with restaurant and taxi for us!

We would love to return! In all a very relaxing holiday which was just what we needed. Thank you Nina and Angelita

On the Adriatic coast on Italy's heal exists a vacation paradise, called Puglia. The area is a favourite destination for Italians on holiday in their own country, and is only marginally affected by international tourism. Here you will find white sandy beaches with crystal clear waters in addition to a number of picturesque villages like Alberobello, Cisternino, Ostuni, Locorotondo, Martina Franca, Polignano a mare and Ceglie Messapica to name but a few. The area is also known for its unique round trullo-houses - like our house for rent.

About the location

The holiday house lies undisturbed in a lovely little valley filled with by olive-trees and figs. There is no traffic passing through, but the property is by no means isolated. With the exception of the last 100 meters up to the property, there is a paved road. It is a 7-minute drive to Cisternino, while the nearest small town, Casalini, has a grocery store and a handful of trattorias, only 2 minutes by car or a short walk away ... The Adriatic sea and the beaches are just 17 km away and there is ample parking along the coast . There are a number of free beaches in addition to beaches which offer rental of sunbeds and parasols.

The days in Puglia are well enjoyed by the pool, on the beautiful beaches and of course visiting all the picturesque villages nearby where you can go in for a walk in the afternoon and have a delicious ice-cream, attend a concert in the piazza at night, visit a beautiful church or eat dinner at a nice outdoor restaurant.

But there is far more to do for those who get restless after a while!

Horseback - riding: In walking distance from the property there is a riding centre offering riding lessons and excursions in Valle d’Itria.

Golf and spa: offered in Savelletri ( 20 mins drive ) in connection with a number of 5 star hotels that have been established in recent years.

Amusement Parks : Also in Savelletri where there is an amusement park, zoo safari and aqualand

Shopping: Puglia has a long tradition of ceramics , and there are outlets all across the region. On the outskirts of Bari there also is an outlet village. There are also nice markets on selected days in the different towns where you can find everything from local produce to antiques .

Visiting a Winery : Puglia is a major producer of wine and grapes like primitivo and negroamaro are well known all over the world. Visits to vineyards may be arranged.

Day trips: For those who like to get around a bit when you 're on vacation, we can recommend day trips to Baroque Lecce or Bari, a harbor town with a charming old town and bustling night life . Alternatively you can travel to the Ionian Sea (bottom of Italy's boot) , but remember swimwear, here too there are wonderful beaches. If cities are not what attract you most, you can drive a little further south and visit the nature reserve of Torre Guaceto, with incredible beaches that give the feeling of being on a tropical island. And even further south, you will find Otranto , with a lovely beach right in town and a charming old town.
