About Pierre-Hugues DUTRAY

We are French friends, with families, loving Italy and particularly Puglia and Monopoli area.

From Paris, we were dreaming to the adriatic coast and its sun, and, most important, to the amazing gastronomy of this part of Italy.

We are pleased to share this dream with hosts and expect them to be happy in our italian home, as we are ourselves.

Pierre-Hugues DUTRAY purchased this villa in 2013

Why Pierre-Hugues DUTRAY chose Castellana Grotte

We felt in love with this trullo. Its panoramic view over the country is amazing... Especially from the pool or roof terraces. And, in fact, we are convinced this area is the nicest one in Bari district..

We enjoy so much this area because it's closed to Bari airport, and to Brindisi one, closed to the sea. Our favourite city is Monopoli, charming harbour and nice beaches all along the coast. We wanted a villa near Monopoli. We found it !

We loved the villa also because it's very new: the trullo is old and typical of the region, but the other building has been built in 2010. Anyway, it has been totally repainted during May 2013 and we decorated the internal rooms during June, to make them very cosy and because we would like everyone having the feeling to be "at home".

What makes this villa unique

There's no overlooking on any part of the property, but not isolated: closed to Castellana and its amenities.

And the garden is made of terraces with fruit and olive trees (almonds, cherries, plums, apricots, melograna...), and we are very fond of these sorts of gardens.

Everyone can go and pick season fruits directly on the trees or, why not, make its own italian marmalade !

Lovely Truillo in quiet, rural location

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 days at the Trullo which was only just enough to enjoy both the house and its amenities and all the places to visit in the area. Kids loved the nice size swimming pool, we enjoyed breakfasts and dinners on the veranda in complete tranquility with beautiful views. Having about 10 cherry trees with ripe fruit was an additional bonus, they were for us to eat! The house was as described on the website, 2 double bedrooms and 1 room with two bunkbeds in the basement, plus a sofa bed that sleeps two in the upstairs lounge. The owner and the gentleman looking after the property for him were both extremely helpful, with information and practical help before and during the stay. The nearest town and supermarket is Castellana Grotte, a 10-15 min drive away. A car is a must if you stay in this rural location.

The house is well placed for visiting large parts of Puglia, the following are within 15 minutes to an hour's and a bit drive from the Trullo. Alberobello, Locorotondo, Polignano A Mare, Monopoli, Matera, Bari, Trani, Capitoli, Torre Canne (the two latter have nice beaches). AND lots more which we didn't have time for!

All in all a very relaxing experience, theTrullo Rosso can be highly recommended!

Lovely stay at Trullo Rosso

  • 5 of 5

A lovely vacation at the apulian countryside. The house itself an of course the pool provides an excellent base when exploring Puglia. Pierre provided us with answers on every question we had about our stay and was very helpfull. We stayed 6 people at the house and there was plenty of room. Kitchen was fully equiped and the property was clean and well-maintaned.

Great flexibility was shown from Mr Sonnante that escorted us late in the evening to the house and said goodbye early in the morning upon our departure.

A lot of useful information was found in the house regarding local restaurants and useful hints.

Dont miss the local bakery in Antonelli. Enjoy! We did and hope to return next year!

beautiful villa in stunning countryside

  • 5 of 5

Trullo rosso is a stunning villa in an amazing location in the puglia countryside. We enjoyed our stay immensely in this wonderful place. The villa is fully equipped for a comfortable stay - a home away from home. The outdoors is huge with ample space for the kids to run around and also for us adults to relax. Pity the weather in puglia was cold during our stay and we could not enjoy the pool!! Otherwise our stay in Trullo rosso was perfect.

Many thanks to Pierre Hugues for having us and sigr. sonnante for welcoming us.

The perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 8 very nice and relaxing days at Trullo Rosso, 2 families together. Obviously the kids loved the pool, and the warm sunny weather, peace and quiet was exactly what we were looking for, and the place, despite it's rural location, was very well located for visiting the areas many attractions. You would need a car to stay here though. The property was very well kept, and we simply just loved it!

Trullo Rosso

  • 4 of 5

Gut gepflegtes Haus und Anlage. Die Spülmaschine befand sich auf der Terrrasse, die Schlafzimmer sind im Untergeschoss. Wir wurden sehr gut betreut. Guter Standort für die Erkundung der Region. Viele gute Restaurants im Nachbarort Castellana Grotte. Sehr ruhige Lage, ideal zum erholen. Ein PKW ist notwendig. Empfehlenswert.

September sunshine

  • 4 of 5

We have just enjoyed a lovely family holiday at Villa Trullo. All amenities were catered for especially for our 12 month old granddaughter. The villa is in a rural location and a car is necessary. The many sights to see are within less than an hours drive away so a very central location. The contact person key holder was very helpful and made sure that we had everything we needed. We enjoyed morning dips in the lovely outdoor pool before venturing out sightseeing. In the evening we used the outdoor BBQ but mainly had our meals out at nearby Italian restaurants especially Villa Maria which is very close by. The owner/contact was very helpful and all the information regarding the accommodation and how to get there was perfect.

20 minute drive to Adriatic coast - many beaches available along the coast mostly fully equipped with sun beds, bars & restaurants and car parking.


Nearest airports are Bari and Brindisi 50 minutes drive with flights from Stansted, (Ryanair), Gatwick (BA) and Heathrow (Alitalia & BA). Car hire is recommended.


12 km to Alberobello, 5 km to Castellana Grotte, Coast is 20 minute drive away and we have a beautiful 18 hole Golf Course 20 mins drive. For families with young children, there is the Zoo Safari adventure park near Fasano, circa 20 minutes drive away.

Further Details:

There are many places of interest nearby all max 20 minute drive away such as Alberobello, the centre of the trullo world and UNESCO World Heritage Site. Castellana Grotte famous for its grottos, Polignano and Ostuni to name a few. On the coast, Monopoli is a lovely harbour town and then The Capitolo for its wonderful beaches. When possible we meet our customers at their arrival airport or at a convenient place on route to guide you in. The villa is a little hard to find and this service saves you time and helps you have a stress free start to your holiday. Tom Tom also available if needed. Welcome pack included on arrival of guests.
