Beautiful Trullo with pool, near Martina Franca

Overview

Property

Updated: 23-Oct-2016
Beautiful Trullo with pool, 2/3 km from Martina Franca, Puglia, Italy. Sleeps 4-6

Trullo degli Uccelli is made up of a traditional trullo with an adjoining lamia/villa and a newly built swimming pool. The trullo’s thick walls keep it cool in the summer and warm in the winter; and always cosy and inviting in the evenings with its beautiful arches and lovely little alcoves. It has been lovingly restored, including unique mosaics inspired by churches in the local vicinity. The adjoining lamia, with it’s traditional curved ceilings, comprises of two double bedrooms, (one of which can be made in to two singles); a stunning and spacious bathroom and a utility room. Each of the bedrooms and the utility room have oak french doors which open onto a large terrace. With gorgeous views of classic Puglian countryside and its many olive trees, wild flowers and rich sienna-coloured soil, the sun-loungers and a parasol make it the perfect place to relax, and lanterns are provided for candlelit alfresco dining. The pool extends the patio and has elegant sun drenched steps to sit on, chat and soak up the sun.

Fantastic property, superb location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our 2 young children ages 3.5 and 7.5yrs.

From our initial enquiry to our return home the owners were so friendly and helpful.

The property was fantastic with every need catered for.

Reading the guest book you realise your are not alone in your appreciation of the effort and thought the owners have put in to make this holiday property stand out from the rest.

It has a very relaxed, personal feel to it.

The Trullo is in a rural location so a car is essential. Most beaches were approx. 45mins away and we visited both coast lines quite a few times!

At weekends the beaches are packed so get there early although we loved being shoe horned in amongst the Italian family's! We only encountered a few English people so really felt like we were away!

Martina Franca is 10mins away and offers a vibrant buzz in the evenings-we were lucky to catch quite a few live band performances and a stunning Flamenco singer too.

We visited Martina Franca most evenings and every meal was simply superb although we did enjoy 1 or 2 BBQ's and dined al fresco lit by the many lanterns and fairy lights provided by the owners.

The welcome pack is informative with restaurant recommendations and market days etc.

Puglia offers many delights and we were able to sample quite a few of them whilst staying in this comfortable, relaxing property-stunning sea and coastlines, endless vineyards and olive groves set in sienna reach earth, historic basilicas and buildings and of course, the food, the wine, the coffee and the ice cream.

Our children loved their 'holiday house' and still mention it!

We all agreed it was our best holiday to date and felt thoroughly relaxed.

Highly recommended!

Beautiful Trullo

  • 4 of 5

Quite the most beautifully equipped rental that we have ever stayed in. Amazing attention to detail - it was just like home from home.

Down to all the crockery and utensils ( that actually cut), including a lovely library of books for all ages!

There are board games - just everything you can think of - we loved it.

Unfortunately the weather was very unkind to us - however the Trullo was so comfortable and welcoming.

Owner's Response: We're so pleased you liked our trullo. When we started renting it we chose to make it somewhere we would love to stay, rather than provide just the minumum. For us, the details are what enhance a good holiday so we are thrilled you appreciated all the small touches. It's a real shame the weather wasn't kind to you; we wish we could control that! Puglia is normally so lovely, but every now and then there's a dodgy spell.

Martina Franca

From the Owner

We fell instantly in love with Puglia on our first visit there in 2004 and Martina Franca in particular. It is a beautiful town which feels very 'real' and not at all touristy. The town itself is stunning, the people are charming and the food and wine are irresistible.

Activity and Interests

Car: necessary

Coast/Beach:

We are situated 35km from both the Adriatic and the Ionian coasts. Part of Italy’s longest coastline, Puglia boasts some of the best beaches in Italy.

Travel:

Bari airport is 110km form the trullo and takes approximately 85 minutes to reach by car.

Brindisi airport is 76km form the trullo and takes about 60 minutes to reach by car.

Car hire is essential.

Distances:

Martina Franca is 3km away. Alberobello, Cisternino, Ceglie, Locorotondo and Ostuni are all within half an hour by car. Matera is about an hour away, and Lecce an hour and a half.

Further Details:

Some of the finest food and wine in Italy comes from Puglia and the mozzarella alone is worth the trip!

Facilities

From the Owner

Trulli are unique to this area of Puglia and are very special little houses with immense character. Our trullo is near enough to the town to enjoy its benefits but is set in peaceful countryside so you can really switch off and unwind. My mosaics make it particularly special and characterful and we have tried to think of everything you'll need and make it a real home from home.
