                                                                                                      Four of us stayed at Trullo della Ghiandaia in September '17 for one week. Cristina was very accommodating, responding to our requests very promptly and professionally. On arrival we were met at the trullo by Cristina and her husband. She had prepared a beautiful meal and filled the fridge with essentials. The trullo has been beautifully restored and is 5* The trullo is approx 2 miles from the centre of Alberobello so a car is essential if you want to get around and see the area. Cristina organised car hire for us at €30 per day plus fuel. The nearest shop/supermarket is in the town centre. The best way to get from the airport is by train to Bari Central (€5 for a single ticket per person). Then catch the train on the FSE line to Alberobello which takes approx 1.5 hours and costs €9.80 each for a return ticket. A taxi to the trullo cost us €10 from the station which must be pre booked as there are no taxi's outside. The Thursday market is a must, selling fine Italian shoes and clothing as well as excellent fruit and veg. If you want a relaxing holiday to get away from it all, this is the place - switch off your phone and forget about everything!
