About the Trullo

A truly stunning Trullo conversion, a wonderful escape all year round.
This traditional Trullo was built by an ancestor around 1820. It has been completely restored to the highest standard whilst keeping the original features, such as the floor made of ancient lime stone and the exposed arches. The courtyard and al fresco dining area are paved with the authentic 200-year old stones. Unlike many Trulli it is very light and spacious as we have connected the cones to create an open-plan layout. As a result the large living-dining area and kitchen make up the focal point of the house. With around 100 square meters inside space and two separate bedrooms it comfortably sleeps four people. The Trullo is surrounded by a large garden which also contains the pool area. The central garden and pool area are shared with the other house on the plot (a traditional Trullo which sleeps 4 people). Garden, pool and pool area (with large shaded dining area) are very generously sized, in order to offer enough space to each party, in case both houses are occupied. The property was designed to be completely safe for children, the pool is fence protected.
The large living-dining area welcomes you with one of the two working fire places and a cosy TV-corner. The hand crafted oak table has been built to our design. The kitchen with its extended island unit is fully equipped with fridge, freezer, dishwasher, hob, oven and washing machine.
There are many attractions in the area: Lots of little towns with wonderful historical centers, Unesco heritage sites like Alberobello (just 15 minutes by car) and Matera, Lecce with its amazing baroque, lots of beaches on both coasts, countless typical restaurants for all budgets. Upon arrival you will find your complimentary Welcome Kit with useful information about the area, such as restaurants, places to see, things to do etc. We have spent so much time exploring this enchanting area and love sharing our findings and insight with our guests. It is our absolute priority to make out guests’ vacation here a truly special one. The property is self-catering and accepting our guests’ privacy is paramount. But in case you would like our help with anything at all, we will be more than happy to assist. Whether it’s cookery lessons or a chef’s dinner with local specialties on the premises, horseback riding for all levels, discovering the countryside by bike or horse carriage, picking your favourite beach out of hundreds of miles of coastline, exploring the before mentioned amazing towns and villages, learning all about local wines, olive oil and other local could go on and on…Fact is you are spoilt for choice here and one vacation won’t be enough to take it all in, so we will be delighted to help you plan your bespoke ideal vacation and make it a truly special one. This is how we intend our role as hosts. Looking forward to welcoming you!
