About Teresa Di Fenza and Donagh O'Brien

We are an Irish couple Donagh & Teresa. We have managed to have got work/lifestyle balance about right whereby we spend approx 6 months of the year enjoying the Puglian lifestyle.

Teresa Di Fenza and Donagh O'Brien purchased this villa in 2005

Why Teresa Di Fenza and Donagh O'Brien chose Bari

Having discovered Alberobello in 2003 we found it very unique and we knew this was the region where we wanted an Italian holiday home. The trullo have many original features including an aia which is a circular area which was used for grinding grain, this has not been incorporated into outside living area where one can relax and enjoy outside dining.

What makes this villa unique

The outside space was the selling point of the property with many original sitting areas and fabulous olive, fruit and nut trees.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a lovely stay at your Trullo – I have been meaning to write to say how much I enjoyed it. Donagh was so helpful with everything and the swimming pool was spotless – the best we have ever had.

All his suggestions for days out were great for us – even satisfying grumpy teenagers!

I would love to come back and visit another time.

Outstanding Trulli holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have had an amazing holiday here in this outstanding Trulli house . Beautiful location near Alberobello just short drive to be amongst all the Trulli's . Fantastic sunsets over looking the welcoming pool set amongst fruit trees that you can pick your own fruit off each morning . Recommend staying here not only beautiful location fantastic Trulli experience but owners are lovely hosts who cannot do enough for you . They know so much about the surrounding areas and where to eat or visit .

What more could anyone want??

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fabulous weeks stay at this Trullo. Spotlessly clean, well equipped and with beds (and pillows) that ensured a great nights sleep. All furnishings and fittings are of good quality and it is obvious that a great deal of thought has gone into providing all the equipment that could be required whilst on holiday here. We really enjoy self catering and never found ourselves short of a vital piece of equipment that so often happens at other properties. However, we are sure that if ever we had found we needed something then Tereza and Donagh would have done their utmost to provide it.

The heated pool was brilliant - lovely and clean, well maintained with easy access down steps to a shallow end and the provision of towels for the pool was a real plus. The garden surrounding the pool was attractive and well kept and we enjoyed abundant amounts of delicious cherries growing there. Several sitting areas were available and all were comfortably furnished.

As well as all this we consider that another real advantage here are the owners, Tereza and Donagh. We so enjoyed their company during our stay as they were able to give us advice on places to visit, places to eat (and places to avoid), where to buy the best wine and where to get the tastiest food. Their sense of humour is very similar to ours and we still laugh at some of the stories Donagh related to us. From our first enquiries Tereza was always quick to reply and the whole booking process was straightforward and uncomplicated. The damage deposit was returned almost immediately once we had given Tereza our details.

We realise that everyone's needs are different and there have been suggestions that there was no privacy. However, Tereza and Donagh are both sympathetic to people's needs and had we not wanted any contact then we are confident that our wishes would have been respected.

Would we visit again? Most definitely - next week if possible. There is so much to do and see in the area. As a retired couple we have travelled widely across Europe and this is one of the best holidays we have had.

Thank you Tereza and Donagh.

Trulli fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this lovely house. It is very cosy, clean and fully equipped with everything needed, including Wi fi. The pool is spotless and a great size and nice touch having a diving board.

The owners, Teresa and Donagh, stay next door and were always on hand with helpful suggestions on places to visit, good beaches or recommendations for restaurants. There are some really good places to eat nearby!

Would love to come back one day. Thank you, Teresa and Donagh.

beautiful property in a perfect location, lives up to its name

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fabulous stay at Trullo Paradiso. The property is enchanting with original features such as exposed stone beams and fireplace. It is comfortable and very clean, and, with teenage children, had the all important wi-fi! The swimming pool is wonderful, set in the grounds, overlooking olive groves, and the shaded area on the terrace is a great place to unwind between dips into the pool. Our hosts, Theresa and Donagh were very friendly, giving us lots of advice on local places to visit and where to eat out, always happy to help and yet not interfering in any way. They kept the garden and pool tidy throughout our stay, and gave us pears and plums picked from their trees. The location is a short drive or a 20-25 minute walk from Alberobello which is famous for its Trulli, though there are lots of other beautiful towns and pretty beaches to visit all within an hour or so. Driving is easy, the roads are good, not too busy, and the drivers don't appear to be anything like as aggressive as in the cities. A week wasn't long enough and we will return to this beautiful place.

Wonderfully quaint property, typical of the area.

  • 5 of 5

Really unique to stay in a trullo. The short distance from town meant it was peaceful. The pool was beautiful and very welcome on hot days. The hosts, Teresa and Donnagh, were friendly and welcoming, gave us lots of tips for things to do and see plus directed us to some great restaurants. Loved it here, would recommend it and hope to return one day

A peaceful and charming outside Alberabello. It is basic but beautifully clean.

  • 4 of 5

Owners delightful and always helpful. Pool and property exceptionally clean. Great for a small family looking for a tranquil base to explore the area. At times the road noise disturbed us. Whilst close to town roads too dangerous to walk along with children. Good value for money.
