About the property

Trullo in Martina Franca, Taranto, Puglia, Italy - Peaceful Country Lane Location Just 7km From Martina Franca And Locorotondo, 10km From Alberobello

Beautiful restored trullo previously lived in permanently by the owners as their family home and now offered for holiday rental. The spacious and homely accommodation comprises of a living area and open plan kitchen/dining area, large main bedroom with king size bed and en-suite shower room, twin bedroom (can be made up as a double on request) and main bathroom. To the rear of the property is a verandah providing the perfect place for shaded al-fresco dining, and leading out to the private swimming pool of 10 x 5 metres. Steps lead up to the roof terrace which is perfect for watching the sunset, as well as taking in the 360 degree panoramic countryside views which stretch across to Locorotondo, Cisternino and Martina Franca. The trullo sits in its own grounds of 10,000sqm and is situated at the end of a quiet no-through country lane with olive groves and vineyards. The location provides wonderful open countryside views, and is just 7km from the beautiful Baroque town of Martina Franca and stunning hilltop town of Locorotondo. The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Alberobello is just 10km away, and just a little further are the popular towns of Cisternino and Ostuni. Beaches on both the Adriatic and Ionian coasts are easily reached within a 45 minute drive. The airports at Bari and Brinidisi are both roughly a 70 minute drive. The English owners live just down the road from the trullo and as such are available for help and advice if required, such as restaurant recommendations, suggestions of places to visit etc etc, whilst of course insuring your total privacy at all times.

Notes on accommodation: All windows are fitted with roll down mosquito nets, and both outside doors have external security doors with built-in flyscreens.

In the front garden area is a variety of fruit trees including peach, plum, apple, pear, cherry, pomegranate and fig. The verandah at the rear of the property offers shade from the sun and is the perfect place for al-fresco dining, with wooden dining table and chairs. Off the verandah is a paved sun terrace surrounding the private 10 x 5 metre swimming pool. Alongside the verandah steps lead up to the roof terrace which provides beautiful panoramic countryside views, taking in Martina Franca, Locorotondo and Cisternino in the distance.

Fantastic holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 glorious weeks on holiday here. Nicholas and Sarah made us incredibly welcome (including an arrival hamper) with handy tips for the area, and toys for the kids! The Trullo was very homely, and the pool was perfect for our two small kids. Beautiful countryside and a 15 min drive to Martina Franca, and 20 minutes to Locorontondo. We had a great 2 weeks, thanks Nic and Sarah!

Lovely house in a rural location with beautiful views. Although it's very private and quiet, it's convenient and close to some of the best and prettiest towns in Puglia. The house was very clean and well maintained with a lovely west facing shaded veranda with uninterrupted views to the spectacular sunsets. Lovely swimming pool. Good towels and sheets and a comfortable bed. Kitchen equipped with all the basics you need to cook at home but it's not far to go if you want to eat out. (We didn't but just visited the local markets to buy delicious fresh food and cooked on the bbq). Nick and Sarah live close by and are on hand if you need any help which was reassuring but they also respect your privacy too. Would definitely recommend this trullo for anyone looking for a quiet relaxing, Puglia experience.

Rural Charm

  • 5 of 5

Recommend the Trullo Martinese without reservations. We were two couples for just under two weeks and the trullo suited us perfectly. Everything exactly as advertised. One large bedroom with en suite. A smaller bedroom in the original trullo with bathroom across the entry. Very functional kitchen with large fridge. All perfectly maintained and well-equipped. Wifi worked perfectly.

It was exceptionally hot when we were there, more like August than late June, so the pool was most welcome. Again, perfectly maintained and sparkling with lovely plantings all around. Beautiful at sundown. There were abundant figs and plums when we were there. Strawberries just going out of season. Plenty of rosemary and sage for the picking. The outside barbecue served us well.

Clearly the trullo was a labor of love for Nicholas and Sarah and it shows in all aspects. They are gracious hosts.

The location is rural with working farm to one side of the property, so a car is an absolute necessity as indicated in the description. The lanes are narrow and bordered by stone fences, so a small car is to be desired! Plenty of places within easy driving distance including Martina Franca, Ostuni, Alberobello, ... Beaches in either direction toward the Adriatic or on the Taranto side.

Photos are fully representative.

If you are looking for walking distance to shops and restaurants, this is not the place, but if you want a country retreat with the luxury of a beautiful pool you will surely not be disappointed.

Fabulous Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Finally found our perfect holiday; Trullo was in excellent secluded countryside position but close enough to visit either coast within a day. The beautiful towns of Locorontondo and Martina Franca are within easy reach with plenty of great restaurants where you can sample the local food and wine. Trullo was extremely well equipped and even when the temperature hit over 35 degrees remained cool day and night with the no need for noisy air conditioning. Pool is a great size for swimming or just floating on a lilo taking in the scent of the lavender and herbs planted in the extensive grounds. No better way to finish the day than watching the sunset sitting on the roof terrace. What a fantastic relaxing and fab holiday.

Thank you to Nicolas and Sarah for a wonderful stay.

superb standard, truly peaceful, spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived, Nicholas and Sarah welcomed us and showed us around the property. They thought of everything, making the arrival very easy and welcoming. They were the perfect hosts during our whole stay, always willing to help yet at the same time respecting our privacy.

The place is beautiful, well decorated to very high standards, and has everything from the coffee maker to games and things for the pool. The pool is big with a great view (and no-one to bother you). If you love outdoors, this is the place. From the roof, we enjoyed astonishing sunsets with a glass of wine.

The Trullo is a perfect building, very well thought out. Even though it was warm outside (imagine, it was August in Southern Italy!), we never missed an air conditioning unit even once. Truly amazing architecture.

Thanks - there is a high risk of us returning to this beautiful Trullo Martinese.

Lovingly restored Trullo in a tranquil setting

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a 2 week stay at this tastefully restored Trullo in Martina Franca. The owners Nick and Sarah and their young son Gianluigi met us upon arrival and showed us around the property. They also provided us with information about the local area, local restaurants and things to see and do. The Trullo was spotlessly clean and very well maintained, the pool was a good size and very much appreciated throughout our stay. We have stayed in many villas throughout Europe and can honestly say that this was the most peaceful setting of any of them. It was centrally located for the towns of Martina Franca, Locorotondo and Alberobello. We also visited Lecce and Matera both of which were just over an hours drive away. We went to the Castellana Grotte which was beautiful and approximately a 40 minute drive away as was Ostuni, a beautiful town and Polignano Di Mare, another beautiful town on the coast. We enjoyed many meals out in the surrounding towns. Nothing was too much trouble for Nick and Sarah and they made us feel very welcome. We had a lovely holiday and would not hesitate to recommend this Trullo to friends and family.
