About the property

Guest Houses / B&B and Bungalow in Martina Franca, Taranto, Puglia, Italy - Peaceful Location Close, 4-5 Km, to Historic Villages like Alberobello, Locorotondo, >Martina Franca

A former farmhouse, ‘il Trulleto’ is now a luxury and charming country residence located in the heart of “Valle d’Itria”, or ‘trullishire’ , a peculiar Apulian setting at an elevation of 400m osl. Trulleto was an old farmhouse composed of 'trulli' and 'lamie' (former agricultural spaces) recently totally renovated by architects and master stone workers. A great attention has been paid in respect of the original architecture and special care in creating interiors full of charm, equipped with every comfort. Several interesting villages are scattered just few miles around like Alberobello, Unesco ‘Humanity World Heritage’, Locorotondo, among ‘The most beautiful Villages in Italy’ and Martina Franca, a small town appreciated for its Baroque style and aristocratic imprint, also hosting, between July and August, the renowned ‘Festival della Valle d’Itria’, an amazing event of opera and ancient music recitals. We want our guests feel at ease as in their 'second home': this was the common thread that we have followed from the beginning and that now we are pleased to offer you. The Trulleto is entirely immersed in nature, among oaks, cherry and olive trees, a location that ensures total privacy and tranquillity to your stay. It will be nice to relax on your terrace surrounded by mediterranean flowers and spices, or basking by the pool after a refreshing swim or take advantage of the shadow under the branches of an secular olive tree. All around many places of great interest are waiting for your visit and many are the activities that you can play not far from 'il Trulleto': charming historic villages, fine crafts, gourmet wines and food and, non far away, the lights and colours of an incredible sea. A few words about the 'trulli'. The entire area surrounding the 'Trulleto' is littered with these constructions of ancient and remote origin, unique in the world with their structure of large stones mounted 'dry' and drawn 'on site'. Trulli are further characterized by the typical conical roofs, decorated with pinnacles that bloom like flowers and decorated with mysterious cosmic symbols. The Trulleto is, indeed, 'a field of trulli' ...Discover the many excellent local food and wine experience will be rewarding for any gourmet. DOC wines, local dairy products and cereals, meat sausages, vegetable gardens and orchards all at 0 km. You will find a surprising synthesis of all that in the menu of restaurants scattered in old towns and countryside: wherever typical and 'family', and always careful in proposing traditional recipes. Typical of the offer: mixed starters, a small collection of local delicacies. A special word about 'bracerie' or 'stove ready' where grilled meat is chosen, prepared and served in spaces adjacent to the retail. But not only a contryside: the sea is waiting you just 25km away, a half hour drive, north and south of Savelletri (Fasano): stretch of beaches and cliffs lapped by the most beautifu sea in Italy, with spectacular lights and colors. Everywhere you will find crystal clear water: the only difficulty is choosing among the many suggestions! A pleasant and easy alternative, an additional choice to diversify your vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We cannot thank you enough for everything you have done during our visit. Through your kindness and hospitality, our experience of Puglia has been one of ease, grace, tranquillity and serenity. The accommodation, with its trulli, pool and surrounding fruit and olive trees created a perfect environment for us to relax and we will be happy to inform our friends of your place.

Our whole experience in Puglia as been one of charm and enlightenment. Our arrival at 'il Trulleto' was inspiring and the location Val d'Itria is spectacular, with the landscape peppered with trulli. "Trulli Magical!" We had a wonderful week here, exploring and discovering Puglia's charms and specialities. We have met same people so passionate about their special region … will certainly be back! Paola, we can't thank you enough for all your help! We have fallen in love with Puglia - beautiful landscape and wonderful people. Everyone was very friendly and welcoming. We hope to be back one day.

A feast for the senses!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in 'Il carrubo' for 6 nights with 2 children (4 and 8) at the end of July. Highly recommend this accommodation...the architecture & setting of the trulli is very appealing... very pretty garden with green grass (a rarity in puglia!) & fruit trees...the scent of the rosemary & lavender fill the air... vine covered verandah...lovely patio under the olive trees... picked blackberries for our breakfast... Locorotondo very close for coffee and cornetto and a play in the little park... other pretty towns to wander around & eat out in within easy reach...All made us want to come back again! Difficult to find so definitely take Paola's suggestion and let her meet you and guide you to it! Paola was courteous and professional and helpful.
