This renovated trulli is extremely charming and unusual at top of a lane with stunning views across the Itria valley. It has one large central cone with a cathedral like ceiling. Cool in summer and cosy in winter with central heating in all rooms. Bedrooms are a good size. Kitchen is in a further trullo off main sitting room. Elegantly tiled floors throughout. Our central trullo which is the sitting room is- according to our builder- the largest he has ever seen. Large garden with trees, lovely stone balcony with chairs, summer house(with 2 beds), 3 hammocks, outdoor eating area and furniture and beautiful views. Martina Franca is 3 km. It is a stunning and elegant baroque town with a cathedral, churches, large public swimming pool, excellent shopping and restaurants. There are also pretty hill villages in each direction approx 10 kms away with weekly markets and delicious local restaurants with genuinely friendly hosts. Sandy beaches on the Adriatic coast are 25 minutes away and on the Ionian side 30 minutes. Other interesting sites nearby include wonderful caves, castles and old forts.

It is a remarkable and fascinating area of Italy which is still relatively untouched- and the food is delicious and the sun shines and the wine flows! Everyone who has stayed at our trullo has loved it. It has an old feel about it with long established pine trees in the front garden and a walnut tree, and olive and almond trees in the back. If you sit on the roof in the evening drinking your prosecco you look out over the whole Itria valley, hear the breeze whistling through the trees. From here you can walk down the back lanes and explore the extraordinary variety of trull in the area. All in all it is an experience not to be missed!
Friendly people, fascinating architectures, fabulous food and wine, sun, abundant fresh produce growing everywhere dropping off the trees. This is the "real" Italy where you can step back in time.
Of course one could make these up! But here are two from this summer:
From our August guests: Just a note to let you know we had a really enjoyable and relaxing holiday staying at your Trullo.
The Trullo had everything we needed and we visited most of the places covered in the visitors information - Monopoli, Polignano, Alberobello, Ostuni, Egnazia, Lecce, Gallipoli, Taranto, Locorotondo, Cisternino, Conversano, Torre Guaceto etc. Weather was great only a couple of thunderstorms. thought local supermarket was very good and market in Martina Franca amazing.
From our late September guests: Hi - we left today and had a great week at your place. Rain the last day
so perfectly timed. Enjoyed the almonds, apples, walnuts, grapes, and attempted brining some olives.
We have had no complaints except from a couple who liked the trullo but didn't like Puglia- they found the landscape too busy. So the message there is don't expect the rolling Tuscan landscape as Puglia is different.
I just love this place and have been back several times. It gives me such a sense of well-being. It embodies the grace and elegance, and sheer abundance of this part of the world. The trulli itself is very comfortable and has everything you could possibly need. You can stay at home lazing in the hammock, or explore any number of magical towns, markets, restaurants, gelateria, beaches. You will want to do all these things, over and over.
Fantastic place to spend our 20th anniversary. All the arrangements went well - even found it in the dark. Facilities great, dry, heating useful in May, welcoming and a genuine trullo experience - not the artificial tourist version. Nearby Martina Franca is a beautiful town, very friendly, and easy access to all the best places in Puglie. Thoroughly recommended - kids (including those in their 60s!) will love it. One word of advice - get a smallish hire car - it's a narrow lane up to the trulli.
We stayed here in September when the weather was warm, but stormy at times. The Trulli is in a good location as there are lots of lovely towns, villages and beaches within driving distance. You must have a car here. It is at the bottom of a hamlet, with two Italian families who live nearby. Its very peaceful and we had some wonderful afternoons drinking wine and lazying in the sunshine. The trulli itself is comfortable, the only issue were the mozzies.
