"Richard, we really love your Trulli, it's a real jewel" Lu from Holland

"Hi Richard, wanted to write to you and thank you for renting us your lovely villa. Having built a couple of houses myself can appreciate the detailed work that has gone into the design making it very special, We also loved the area and had some great meals - the best in Port Nova. I have rented villas for the past 30 years and this is in my top 3 ! Best Regards John fm UK

We have a wonderful time and a good rest - just what was needed. Your trullo is stunning and had everything we needed.We surprised and pleased by the contents of the welcome pack; we've never seen anything like it at any other villa. Liz said you liked to exceed expectations and you certainly did. Many thanks for such a wonderful holiday.

Best wishes Barbara - Fm UK -

The Perfect Break!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful week away in Puglia and for us the accommodation was perfect.It was wonderful to stay in an authentic house from the region and yet have all the modern luxuries that made our stay just right! We were a party of 6 in total and so the division of the rooms worked perfectly..we couldn't hear each other once in our own little "areas" yet could be communal to eat and relax by the pool.Our welcome by Marina was lovely and she explained everything very clearly.

Due to the recent illness of a memeber of our party we wanted to just relax and be together which this holiday certainly gave us the opportunity to do.

The property was very clean and well maintained including attention to the pool on more than one occasion.

We decided to use a different route for our journey back to Brindisi airport and would recommend going by San Vito as this was much quicker.

The information was thorough and clear though not quite up to date regarding the wifi which was actually excellent but the blurb had lead us to believe there wasn't any at the house...may be just needs up dating.

For a relaxing holiday in an interesting and not overly explored area I would certainly reccommend this accommodation.You do need to be prepared to drive though as there wasn't really anywhere to walk to which wasn't a problem to us but something to be aware of.

All in all this accommodation gave us exactly what we wanted from this holiday and we are all left feeling more relaxed and "chilled out" because of it!

A Puglia 5* experience

  • 5 of 5

My international friends and I enjoyed a wonderful vacation in this modern and luxuriously comfortable home that provided every facility that we needed to relax and enjoy our vacation. We were welcomed to the Trullo by the caretaker who left a thoughtful care package of groceries and food that we would need to get our vacation started and carefully walked us through everything we needed to know about the property. The caretaker was also available at short notice for any queries. The property has been thoughtfully renovated, has a wonderful kitchen for cooking and bedrooms are spacious, with comfortable beds and bathrooms and excellently maintained. pool is private and also excellently maintained, as are the grounds, which are secured. The Trullo is within easy proximity to the coast, to nearby "white city" of Ostuni, the and with access to the motorway for more adventurous exploration to other wonderful parts of Puglia in Southern Italy. Restaurants in neighbouring towns provided excellent food, service and value and Puglian wine exceeds it's reputation. We highly recommend visiting and enjoying this beautiful home and it's surrounding areas.
