Media Comments: Amanda Lamb, A Place In The Sun, Channel 4:
'Puglia is one of my favourite parts of Italy. The place oozes rustic charm and character and is the perfect place to escape everyday life and lose yourself in a bygone era. Trulli houses look like something out of a fairy tale and at Trulli Talily you get the chance to experience an authentic piece of real Italy.'
Before Penny & Ian got married in 2003 they had a romantic idea of owning a trullo in Puglia. In 2007 their dream came true and they used their property design and refurbishment experience to create a little piece of paradise in a wonderful setting of Puglia countryside.
Ian & Penny Ledger purchased this villa in 2007
We looked at hundreds of plots and property before selecting this trullo, because it is in the most stunning countryside between two of the most favoured historic towns in Puglia.
Rustic charm and history with all the mod cons you need.
Excellent booking experience, website and information pack. Bob & Helga (managers at Trulli Talily) are excellent. They are informative, helpful and very knowledgeable about the local area. An excellent welcome pack, very welcome after a day of travelling, especially the local wine!
The guest guide was excellent. The property lovely, clean and well equipped. Thank you.
Puglia, or Apulia in Italian, is the long strip of land 400km from North to South that makes up the 'heel' of Italy. Trulli Talily is nestled in the heart of Valle d'Itria, probably the most sought after area of Puglia. The Valle d'Itria is an undulating plateau in the centre of the province containing some of Puglia's prettiest landscapes.
Unique to this area are 'Trulli' which are dotted throughout Puglia countryside with olive groves, vineyards, cherry, peach and almond orchards, all neatly partitioned by dry-stone walls. Trulli are ancient cylindrical buildings with thick white limestone walls and stone conical roofs. Often attached are 'lamia', a barrel roofed stone building. These ancient stone buildings were lived in by the agricultural community to keep cool in the heat and warm in the winter. Local expertise is required to refurbish the ancient stone.
