All the correspondence with the guys at Puglia Paradise leading up to our holiday couldn't have been more helpful, especially as we were headed for an area we had never previously visited. The trullo is beautiful, and nestled in complete privacy within a stunning olive grove at the end of a long, privately gated drive. As our daughter is a keen swimmer, a plunge pool was not going to cut it, so the 10x5m at Fantastico was perfect for us. It is garnered with some very comfortable poolside furniture. There is also a much needed covered al fresco dining area. Go for the added extras that the guys have on offer, as they just add to the experience, when a break from sunbathing is required! We went for the bike tour with the lovely Cristina, who decked us out with all the necessary gear. Even though we all failed miserably on the fitness stakes, Cristina was able to alter the route to accommodate us, allowing us to reward ourselves with a drink in Alberobello, whilst she rode the journey back to the trullo alone and then drove her vehicle to pick us up and escort us home!! Marika brought her skills from her Dad's local restaurant to guide us through a pizza making evening. Such a fun experience, only let down by Dad's awful culinary touch. Making pizzas outdoors in the sunset....gorgeous! The boat trip from Monopoli gave us the chance to dive off into the Adriatic.....views of the coast from boatside were enthralling. The food and drinks on board were a bit lacking, but friendly, family crew. A car at Trullo Fantastico is a must. Everything you see on the site is exactly as is in reality. The customer service was very personable and reliable. We will be back!

All the facilities and extra services were accurately described and on arrival we were welcomed by Leandro who spoke good English and explained all the necessary household details and answered our many questions. The fridge had been filled with the list of items we had pre-ordered and the Trullo and pool were clean. Over the week, we had three fabulous evening meals cooked at the Trullo by pre-arrangement including a Pizza evening cooked in the pizza oven, and two delicious typical puglian menus of many courses, one evening based on meat and the final evening based on local fish. The cooks could speak some English, were absolutely delightful and fun to meet, and made these evening meals very special occasions. Being new to Puglia, we had wonderful support throughout the week also from Massimo and Marika who could provide local information about beaches and other interesting local events and places to visit. We had arranged for Marika to babysit one evening, and this worked extremely well as she is experienced with young children, could speak English and both children were very happy with her. Trullo Genna is quite isolated down a narrow bumpy track, but this was not a problem for us with the aid of Google Maps’ navigation. We all enjoyed the pool very much and the other facilities provided including table tennis and the basketball hoop. The accommodation with the two trulli worked particularly well; and is comfortable, well-furnished and functional. All these elements made a truly memorable holiday for our family, and we felt the communication and support from Massimo was excellent. We would hope to return and can highly recommend Trullo Genna.
