About the property

A beautiful holiday home consisting of four authentic Trulli with private pool

In this pristine landscape, we can accommodate up to 10 guests very comfortably, i.e. two persons per bedroom.

The main building which has four Trulli and two extensions, includes:

- one main room with an American-style kitchen

- a dining area and a living room with a large flat screen TV

- a large master bedroom, followed closely by a spacious bathroom

A door connects the main building to the "Trullo" part of the house where there are:

- 3 further bedrooms

- a bathroom

- another smaller kitchen/dining room

Separate to the main building, although still attached, is a little "maisonette" which includes a bedroom with an on-suite bathroom, a kitchenette with a dining table and chairs, along with a wardrobe and sofa bed. Originally the rabbits' and chickens' quarters back when our grandparents worked the markets twenty ago, this part of the villa has now been converted into a lovely quiet private "maisonette" for a couple travelling with a big group of friends or a nanny staying with a large family for instance.

Puglia (Apulia) is now served by British Airways, Easyjet, Lufhansa, Air Berlin, Ryanair and many more. You also have a choice between two airports, Bari and Brindisi (closer to the villa).

About Stephanie Semeraro

My name is Stephanie, I am 28 years old, half Italian-half British, and passionate about languages and travelling. My family and I are fortunate to own this beautiful Trullo in Puglia where my paternal family is from. On behalf of them, I will be taking care of renting our home. I speak 4 languages fluently (English, French, Italian, Spanish, and some Portugese and Dutch) so don't hesitate to contact me in any of those languages :)

"Trullo Maria Leo" is a family villa passed down from generation to generation throughout the past few centuries. The name of the trullo was chosen in honour of dear nonno Leonard'Antonio and nonna Maria who lived there for nearly 60 years and, to this day, still love it very dearly. Now, they (and the rest of the family) are keen to share their beloved home with other people and invite them to marvel at the beauty and charm of it.

I hope you will love and enjoy this family home as much as we have and we are looking forward to welcoming you in the near future!

Fabulous villa in perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We were two families spending a week in Puglia and this was the perfect place for us to stay. The villa is spacious with plenty of room for children to play and relax, for grown ups to cook and eat, and for all of us to enjoy the beautiful pool and its gorgeous setting. We toured the region - 20 minutes to a variety of beaches, 10-20 minutes to some spectacular towns, and near so many great restaurants. We even took a tour of a local olive producer (at Masseria Brancati), which was fabulous, and went for an afternoon at the nearby waterpark. Zio Riccardo was charming and helpful, on hand for anything we needed but unobtrusive (although we would have happily invited him for dinner). Stephanie and Riccardo couldn't have done more to make us feel welcome and comfortable. Thank you for a beautiful week :-)

Cisternino is known to be one of the Valle d'Itria most enchanting, historic towns. The small and utterly charming old town centre has remained virtually intact for centuries, with its whitewashed houses, narrow streets, historic churches and elegant central 'piazza'. There are also several panoramic view points where visitors can enjoy the surrounding countryside, its rolling hills, dry stone walls and white conical trulli scattered all across the region.

The nearby beaches also provide a large variety of fun activities for adults and children alike.
