Quiet spot, we enjoyed the siestas in the hot afternoons! Maria and Michele were outstanding hosts, and helped in every way. Three floors plus a top terrace perfect for quick dry of the laundry. The multiple steps kept us fit for the rest of the holiday! Thanks, Maria, we recommend your place highly.

The house is spacious with good facilities inc good air con. The pool is absolutely stunning and the outside area perfect with sun and shade. mY boys are 6 and 8 and loved the pool. We enjoyed the BBQ many times and walked around the grounds looking for lizards and beautiful flowers. Its 15 mins drive to Monopoli and P di Mare which are both great towns with lovely restaurants. The view from the garden is wonderful and the local area is quiet. When we had some issues the team at Trulli e Domore were excellent and did everything they could to help us. The place was clean, with loads of towels including pool towels. We can't wait to go again.

The old town is very fine with a maze of narrow winding streets. The apartment is in the centre of it so you are surrounded by restaurants, cafes and bars. The roof terrace is a great place to relax and soak up the sun, with the sandy beach 3 minutes away for a refreshing swim. Lots on interesting places a drive away for day trips, such as Matera and Alberbello. The week went by too fast !
