Trullo Incanto, thanks to the thick stone walls that insulate from heat and cold, will make you live a cool stay in the summer months, while in winter, you will be enveloped and surrounded by the warmth of the fireplace (wood burning) heating in all of the rooms. It can comfortably accommodate from 2 to 7 people in 3 bedrooms (trulli) with wrought iron bed, bedside tables, chest of drawers and wardrobe. In one of them the light coming through the window positioned at the top, instead of the pinnacle, creating every morning the wonderful sensation of waking up in a magical place. Entering into the structure there is the living room (with vaulted ceiling), with cupboard, 3 seats sofa and rocking chair and the thermal chimney. The spacious kitchen-dining room (with vaulted ceiling) is equipped of everything you need such as table and chairs, satellite TV and DVD player. The bathroom is complete of everything, including the washing machine.
Me and my girlfriends spend a great weekend in Trullo incanto. The weather was not great, but never mind, we still made the best of it. The Trullo incanto is really beautiful, with a full equipped kitchen and bathroom. There is also a great terrace, witch unfortunately we couldn't use.
Valle dItria is a beautiful place to visit and hope to revisit it in a nicer weather conditions.
Thanks to Mari for her hospitality and when we return we will definitely stay here.
When we made our plans to stay somewhere in the heel of the boot of Italy, locations near Locorotondo kept showing up. We decided we wanted to stay in a trulli house and look through quite a few before finding this one. It has always been my dream to visit a location in Italy and stay some where that feels like a central Villa and be able to make day trips from that location. This is definitely a place! It is within a 2 hour drive to everything we wanted to see in the heel of the boot ... not to mention that it is one of the most comfortable homes I've ever stayed in! The pictures actually don't do this property justice. The home is beautiful and equally beautifully decorated, the property is impeccable (we were there during olive harvesting and actually got to see that happen on the property!), And it is in such a quiet and secluded area. Mary was the most perfect and gracious hostess ever! She was very accommodating, answered all of our requests and was right there every time we needed something! The day that we checked out, we found out that this was actually her childhood home which made it even more special for us. If I'm back in this area, I would definitely stay here! I would recommend this place to anyone!
Trullo Incanto really was a superb find, it was really clean and and well maintained, it was fully equipped with everything you need. Maria & Antonio were so helpful with recommendations for places to visit and where to get great seafood! Our kids loved having the added bonus of a play area. The local bakery was a short walk to the end of the road. A car is essential especially if you plan on visiting all the surrounding towns and the beaches are all about 15-20 minutes away. This was our first visit to the Puglia region and staying in the Trullo Incanto really was an added bonus to the trip. We have it on our list to re-visit in the near future!
The trullo was quiet, comfortable, spacious, and for lack of a better word, magical in its unique features. Unlike anything we've experienced before in accomodations. Likewise, the area is captivating - the landscape with its small farms with their trulli has such a serene beauty, perfect for walks, especially towards evening. Maria and her husband and sister were very gracious hosts. We would certainly return without hesitation.
What a wonderful experience!
From the incredible hospitality and generosity of Mary and Antonio, to the picture perfect setting.
The trullo is magical, the garden wonderful, especially for the children to play in, and the location is whimsically from another time. It is very private, and you feel like time has slowed down (so much do, we slept until late every day!).
The trullo is beautifully furnished and staying there was an incredibly unique experience. We loved it.
It is an easy drive to beautiful Baroque Martina Franca or to the coast. We loved Monopoli and Lecce, and Bari's historic centre was gorgeous. And food... Wow. You eat very well in the land of trulli.
A must for anyone wanting to stay in Puglia.
We stayed in Maria’s trulli for a week in late October, and received a warm welcome. The trulli is cosy, comfortable and well equipped (although we were surprised to find no kettle, and the girls were tickled to find traditional sheets on their beds rather than duvets). The shower is good and the washing machine very handy, and for October, the huge open fire and heating was perfect. The photos and description on the website are entirely accurate. We have two young daughters, who particularly liked the play area with table football and swings and slide, and we appreciated the gated property. We were blessed with mostly warm sunny days, and enjoyed walking to the bakery (literally at the end of the road) for bread each morning and then having breakfast outside on the terrace.
The best thing about the trulli is the location. It’s about an hour south of Bari airport, and perfectly placed in the centre of the Valle d’Itria – 10 minutes from Locorotondo. Within 20-30 minutes you can reach Alberobollo, Martina Franco, Ostuni – all the most beautiful white villages, and also the Castellana caves and the rocky coastline. The only drawback we found, being late October, most of the coastal towns were shut down – Torre Canne was like a ghost town. We'd recommend going to Polignano a Mer - stunning - and open!
