Delightful well restored trullo in rural location

  • 5 of 5

Trullo Genna really lived up to our high expectations and perfectly suited our requirements for a family holiday of nine people with an age range of granny to toddler! All the facilities and extra services were accurately described and on arrival we were welcomed by Leandro who spoke good English and explained all the necessary household details and answered our many questions. The fridge had been filled with the list of items we had pre-ordered and the Trullo and pool were clean. Over the week, we had three fabulous evening meals cooked at the Trullo by pre-arrangement including a Pizza evening cooked in the pizza oven, and two delicious typical puglian menus of many courses, one evening based on meat and the final evening based on local fish. The cooks could speak some English, were absolutely delightful and fun to meet, and made these evening meals very special occasions.

Being new to Puglia, we had wonderful support throughout the week also from Massimo and Marika who could provide local information about beaches and other interesting local events and places to visit. We had arranged for Marika to babysit one evening, and this worked extremely well as she is experienced with young children, could speak English and both children were very happy with her.

Trullo Genna is quite isolated down a narrow bumpy track, but this was not a problem for us with the aid of Google Maps’ navigation. We all enjoyed the pool very much and the other facilities provided including table tennis and the basketball hoop. The accommodation with the two trulli worked particularly well; and is comfortable, well-furnished and functional. All these elements made a truly memorable holiday for our family, and we felt the communication and support from Massimo was excellent. We would hope to return and can highly recommend Trullo Genna.

Lovely property in quiet surroundings

  • 5 of 5

A lovely property and perfect for our stay. It was a family reunion so we filled the whole house. Pizza oven and bbq very well used. The pool is a perfect size and none of us wanted to leave at all. Weather was hot, but the houses stayed cooler at night so never felt uncomfortable. Lots of shaded areas for the times that the sun was hot. Susie was a great property manager and any problems that we did have were sorted out. Special mention to Teresa who made the house look so welcoming - especially her home baked cake which was so good we had to ask her to do another one for the second week. Would certainly recommend to anyone looking to visit this part of the world.

Look forward to seeing you all at Trullo Genna in the future. Susan Gardner, italypuglia

A pleasant stay in a spectacular trullo

  • 5 of 5

The trullo is very tastefully renovated, it consists of a magnificent group of stone buildings. It is well suited for 2 families, with separate entrances and full privacy for both. There are various possibilities to sit outside, in the shadow, in the sun or next to the pool. Unfortunately, it was too cold during our stay (October), so we could not use the generous pool much. The location of the trullo is favourable, with many sights less than 1 hour away (Adriatic and Ionian seas, Matera) or even less (Alberobello, Cisternino, Martina Franca).

We particularly enjoyed Susan's hospitality and helpfulness. She was always accessible, gave us good advice, solved technical problems in the house within hours, and overall did everything to make our stay pleasant - thanks again.

October is hunting season, so twice we were woken up with the first light by ambitioned hunters trying to shoot sparrows or other poor beasts. Also, the house is in an agricultural area with olive, almond and cherry plantations, so there are field workers with their machines at times - nothing serious at all, simply do not expect absolute loneliness.

In summary, we had an excellent time and recommend the trullo to anyone who enjoys being out in the green, in a spectacular and historic building.

The best property and location

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful place to stay and the surroundings great with olive and fig trees surrounding the property. The property is very spacious and very clean and the facilities are excellent. The property manager is very helpful with plenty of recommendations for places to visit and eat. We visited with another family with teenage children who really enjoyed the location and property. Highly recommonded.....

Trulli Excellent

  • 5 of 5

Our two families of 4 spent 7 gloriously sunny days at Trullo Genna last week. The property is outstanding and our host Susan did everything possible to make our stay run smoothly. She was always available to answer queries (and did so very promptly). We took trips out each day (there are some fantastic nearby towns to explore and coast within 40 minutes). Prices for food and drink are excellent in the area (had to check that a 5 Euro cafe bill actually had the four drinks included and we had a fantastic 2.5 hour lunch for 8 with wine, deserts and coffee for 180 Euro). We returned hot every day to the excellent pool that is a great size and the large outdoor communal area was our base for barbecues, pizza (baked in the outdoor oven) and excellent home cooking.

The fittings and equipment are of a high standard, the beds comfy and the area peaceful and relaxing.

We would recommend a visit to all and would have happily extended for another week if possible.

Mediterranean idyll

  • 5 of 5

Imagine reading in a hammock under a gigantic oak tree, the cicadas buzzing in the background, a light breeze to keep you cool and a lovely swimming pool a few paces away. Imagine a starry night, no other noises than the ones your party produces, birds and crickets singing, the outdoor oven alight and pizza cooking inside.

We had a delightful stay, enjoying the peace and calm, the space of this lovely cluster of trulli, the drive through the almond and olive fields when back from an excursion, the table tennis for competitions, the comfortable and picturesque rooms overlooking the fields.. The property was well maintained and clean, help available with small hiccups, it truly was a holiday to be raccomended.
