About Alison

We first came to Alberobello in 2005 and fell in love with it. I had spent time in the North of Italy, which I love very much, but the South is just so different. We immediately bought a small apartment and then spent the next two years coming here for weekends and holidays as much as we could. One year we visited 9 times!

Alison purchased this villa in 2007

Why Alison chose Bari

We wanted something close to the wonderful town of Alberobello, being such a tourist town it is never quiet and there is always something going on and restaurants open whatever time of year you visit.

What makes this villa unique

Our trullo is one of the few large trulli that have all the bedrooms off of the main living area; you don’t need to go outside to get to the main part of the house. We have a very large games room which is excellent when too hot to go outside, or some extra space for children to play in. The heated pool is a wonderful addition. The pizza oven makes for a great evenings entertainment as well as good pizzas. As we live locally we are always on hand for any information or help that you may need. We can also arrange a private chef, or a local lady to come to the house and prepare you a traditional meal, where you make the pasta!

Guestbook comments from the owner

'The photographs didn't do the trullo justice, the inside is stunning and far bigger than we expected' - Mr & Mrs McKinney, Oxfordshire. 'The location is handy for visiting all the attractions in the area, and not far from the beach' - Mr & Mrs Honor, Northamptonshire.

'We had such a fantastic holiday - we will definitely go again next year' - Mr& Mrs Holmes, Cambridgeshire

A wonderful home from home that ticks the for all ages.

  • 5 of 5

Three generations (youngest 4 months) stayed in Alison and Chris's lovely trullo. The place is set up to be as easy as possible for everyone, all on one level, with the excellent pool and parking areas safely gated, the kitchen intuitive and well equipped - the BBQ and pizza oven were particular hits. The "play barn" had things to entertain all ages, and the surrounding area has plenty to do without making one feel every day must be a sightseeing day. Our hosts, who live a few kms away, are wonderful - always friendly and helpful without being intrusive. For a family with children, or indeed adult groups, this is a great place to stay.

A wonderful holiday!

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic location, with a small supermarket very close by, & a really well equipped house. The bathroom facilities were lovely & the pool & games room were a huge hit, with something for all ages. Lots to see and do in the surrounding area too.

We loved using the pizza oven & bbq, and the outdoor/pool furniture was really good quality.

Alison & Chris were really helpful before & during our stay.

Pretty much perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend this accommodation. A successful week with two kids (4 and 8) and the in-laws in July! ...The description of a luxury Trullo is well deserved... the restoration is very appealing... spacious and well maintained... each bedroom has its own conical roof to wake up to and they are lovely spaces....very well equipped kitchen (appreciated the all the kid/pool friendly glasses etc!) ... the pool is wonderfully heated so the kids could spend a long time in it... hammock in the olive trees...had fun being pizza chefs... the football table in the games room very popular ... great for hottest parts of the day and something for everyone (from playhouse to pool table ... all the toys were great)... the location is ideal for coffee/restaurants in pretty towns Locorotondo, Martina Franca, Cisternino... also a visit to the caves in Castellana... even tried the water park in Alberobello (fun but busy!)... The owners' plans to provide more shade and ways to extend the season are spot on... definitely one to return to!

Excellent outside area

  • 4 of 5

Really lovely place to stay - excellent facilities for babies with a lot of toys and books to play with and a swing/play area. I can't fault the outside area at all and we loved using the bbq and pizza oven. However, we found the Trullo very hot and no fans were in the rooms (description says they have fans) and the rooms including the wardrobes and drawers smelt quite musty so we had to spray a lot of air freshener every day. The bedding was also quite uncomfortable with plastic backed sheets (which we removed as they were making everyone sweat!). Alison and chris were very helpful, we had two broken toilets and a shower drainage issue during the stay and workmen were sent around promptly.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. I'm sorry that you found it hot in the bedrooms they usually stay really cool. The fans were in the games room, if you had asked we would have put them in the house for you. I know it doesn't help you but we are installing Air-conditioning. Hope all goes well with the pregnancy. Alison

Amazing spacious trulli house in great location

  • 5 of 5

The moment we arrived at the truly we knew we had picked somewhere really special. Met personally by Alison and Chris we were shown around the property which had lots of character and yet was generously proportioned and fantastically kitted out. 3 of the bedrooms were huge doubles with en suite shower rooms with a further bedroom (we had it set up as a twin for the children) and another full bathroom with bath which made everyone happy. There was plenty of space to unpack and the kitchen was large and very well kitted out- including the perfect glasses for limoncello. The high standard was continued outside with large comfortable sun loungers, a beautiful outdoor dining space and the brilliant heated pool. The villa is perfect for very young children with plenty of space for cots and highchairs. There wasn't a single step on the property and the pool and property was fenced off so they could run about without us worrying about any hazards. Our children loved the games room with all its toys, ping pong and table football - as did we as it kept them well entertained and freed up the pool for some quiet adult relaxation. The villa is in a perfect location with so much to see and do. When we return, which we most certainly will, there are still plenty of things for us to visit which we couldn't manage the first time around. Although it is difficult leaving the villa as Alison and Chris have clearly put their guests and their needs at the forefront of everything they have done. During our stay the washing machine broke and within 12 hours it had been looked at, deemed unfit to repair and a brand new one installed. This is just one example of the fantastic customer service that we received and it was most appreciated given the occupancy of three sticky messy children. A real highlight was having the neighbour, Palma, and her Mum visit the villa to make pasta and cook a truly delicious and authentic Italian meal. We did this on our last night and would definitely look to book for more nights when we visit again. We enjoyed using the BBQ but the outdoor pizza oven was the favourite and we had really perfected our recipe and technique by the end of the week. Speaking with Chris about their plans it sounds like the villa is set to get even better, although we think it is pretty perfect already, and if it is executed like everything else they have done we are sure it will be wonderful. Keep up the good work and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
