The property, which in high season is rented in its entirety on an exclusive basis, is ideal for 1 large family, 2 smaller families or a group of friends. Having two separate units means you can holiday together without being in each other's hair at all times. Good for maintaining family harmony!
Each house has its own terrace where you can have breakfast, but communal meals are usually taken under the gazebo in the courtyard of the trullo, close to the BARBEQUE.
The social focus of the property, at least in the summer, is undoubtedly the large (12x6m) swimming pool, where you can spend the day in the sun lying on some of the most comfortable loungers in circulation. And if the sun gets too hot (as it often does, despite a cooling breeze) you can either take a dip in the pool or shift under the shape of an olive tree. Much more romantic than an umbrella!
Come evening, you can either cook in the kitchen or on the barbecue (grilling the local lamb with rosemary plucked from a whole bush in the garden is a unique experience!) or go out to a restaurant. And one of the best fish restaurants in the whole area - Il Brigantino - is only 5 minutes drive away in San Michele Salentino. This is a restaurant that deserves a Michelin star, so visit it before the Michelin reviewers wake up to it and prices double.
There are 4 bedrooms, 2 in the trullo, 2 in the casetta (cottage). They are equipped with two families in mind: a double bed for the parents and two single beds for the kids. But the singles can be combined to create 2 more doubles according to your needs. Each bedroom also has its own bathroom with shower.
Each house has its own sitting room with a small TV and DVD player. No large screens because we do not believe people come on holiday to watch television! But we do offer a FREE WIFI connection to help you keep in touch with the world.
One of Trullo Deserto's main features is tranquillity. Many trulli in Puglia are built on the edge of plots of land that border a road. This can be a source of considerable noise because of passing traffic, of which there is a surprising amount. This is not our case, as we are set well back from the road (c. 1 km), so traffic noise is never more than a vague rumble in the distance. So tranquillity is the order of the day - and of the night. Nor will you have noisy neighbours, or a disco round the corner that keeps you awake. It may be the best night's sleep you'll ever get! Come and try it out.
