Guestbook comments from the manager

Trulli Marchiones location is terrific - quiet and relaxing , but not too far from the amenities of (several good bakeries/patisseries, grocery/butchers, some banks/cash points, small supermarket and a number of decent eateries).The trulli is lovely - comfortable, clean and well presented. The terrace offers a perfect place for a leisurely lunch or to watch the sun go down over a glass of wine or two. The kids loved the pool, which was clean and well equipped with plenty of sun loungers etc etc. In fact, trying to persuade them to leave the trulli to do some sightseeing was tricky. Hayley, the property manager, was really helpful (and prompt) in responding to questions before our arrival, and once we had arrived, she was very helpful and knowledgeable, and really went the extra mile to make sure we had a fantastic stay. If you're looking for a relaxing break, or one which is well-placed for exploring a very interesting part of Italy then Trulli Marchione is difficult to beat.

Great family friendly property

  • 4 of 5

We had a very enjoyable week here with our three young children (aged 2,3 & 5). Property clean and with all the essentials. Pool was great for young kids as there are a few steps then a ledge which was perfect for paddling. Due to it being April the Trulli was a little cool, but once the heating kicked in it was really comfortable (and I am sure it is great in the summer months that the Trulli stays cool). Nice area and local towns in easy access. Hayley (property manager) very quick to respond to any request.

Our great family holiday!

  • 4 of 5

2 sons, 2 daughters-in-law, 1 grand-daughter, my wife and myself enjoyed every minute of our stay at this great holiday house. Ample room for everybody. The 3 bedrooms with each a bathroom are guaranteeing the privacy for 3 couples. The location of the villa is in the middle of nowhere surrounded by olive trees and olive trees; the silence of the nature needed to calm down(remark: car with GPS is a must). A fantastic swimming pool for the whole family and it was used every day due to the nice weather we had. And everything in and around the house super clean.

Moreover Puglia is a great region apparently still unknown to the non-Italian tourists. Within a distance of 100 km you have a nice choice of little villages and small cities to visit.In all restaurants we visited we had great food with simple and pure ingredients. Definitely try the antipasti. And one more attractive point: we only met friendly Italians definitely when you try to speak a few words of Italian.

Only 1 little minus point: the wasps around the house and from time to time they were aggressive but bottom line nobody was stung by these insects.

As a conclusion I can only recommend this great villa and Puglia as a region.

From the Owner

We have lived in Castellana Grotte for some time and love this town so much that we decided to purchase a holiday home here. We love this area because it is not a touristy town, it is a real Puglian town where the people are incredibly friendly and helpful. The locals treat you like one of them and you don't get ripped off here like you would in touristy places. I also love the fact that you can cook like the locals or dine out as there are lots of great food/wine places/restaurants to choose from - and you can do it all very cheaply too. The olive oil here is sooo good and cheap - must admit since living here, we have become olive oil snobs. Very importantly we love it here because of the awesome weather here.

From the Owner

When staying at Trulli Marchione, you get the best of both worlds: you get to experience life in rural Puglia and at the same time you are in close proximity to beaches, town and key tourist sights. You'll be staying in a stunningly restored iconic Puglian trulli that is light, tastefully decorated and unlike most trulli, it is also unusually spacious - in most other trullis, one has to be vertically challenged to fit into the bathroom or showers. But not at Trulli Marchione, you will be most impressed with the space and the creature comforts provided including air conditioning. The fenced private pool with a shallow section for bambini is ideal for families with children. But if you prefer the beach, it is only about a 15 min drive away.
