Guestbook comments from the owner

We would like to thank you for having the possibility to stay at your Trulli Dolce last week. We had a wonderful time, saw a lot of amazing places, the weather was fine, we swam in the pool every day, made a barbeque and pizza in the pizza oven. All in all we had a great time!

Thanks again for the grocery shopping and the delicious "welcome greetings".

We hope to be able to come back to Puglia soon. Annie was raving about "Soul of Puglia", may

A peaceful and happy piece of Puglia.

  • 5 of 5

With an expert greeting from Annie, the local agent, and an efficient charm which commenced from the first introduction to the villa, it is difficult to fault any aspect of the villa, the grounds and the pool, although the weather decided to challenge us with perhaps the wettest week in months, if not years. Nevertheless, once we gained our bearings we visited many of the local towns and sampled the restaurants and their tradtional cuisine and wines. The primitivo and negromaro grape varieties are surely under appreciated in the wider world, as is the cooking and hospitality of the area but it is the quality of the support which Annie and the owners gave to us during our stay that we will remember above all else. The cooker challenged us once or twice so a repairman arrived the next day. The lid of the waste bin broke - it was replaced the next day. Thenpool, sadly under employed due to the silly weather, was beautifully maintained and of larger proportions than expected. The garden provided delicious figs, almonds and even pomegranates.

The owners, Glenn and Kasia deserve top marks, as does their wonderful agent, Annie.

Trulli dolce

Lovely quiet spot - outdoor living area between small Trulli and modern house. Lovely big pool. Close to Ceglie and convenient for Ostuni.

Great family stay!

  • 5 of 5

Great villa! We had a wonderful time here - the villa and the grounds are very well maintained and the trullo was amazing. Our kids loved it, particularly the swimming pool!

The villa is conveniently located to explore some really lovely places (AlberroBello, Ostuni, Martina Franca and Lecce) and the beach is about 20 min drive. We would highly recommend it!

Just amazing

  • 5 of 5

The Trulli Villa is a great place to stay with kids and/or friends. I stayed there with a few friends and we had a great time. I regretted for not taking the kids because the swimming pool and the beautiful garden would have been ideal for them.

The Truli is located within a short distance from Ostuni as well as few vineyards. We visited three (I highly suggest going for wine tasting) and had a great time. One will need a rental car of course to visit Ostuni and other nearby attractions (vineyard tours could be arranged).

I highly recommend this place.... its both relaxing and fun.

Beautiful Property, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

a brief summary - Wow!

The longer version:

I came with a group of guys to have a relaxing week in the country. There was so much to do that it went by before we could even make a dent in all there is to do around Ostuni.

Highlights - we mostly cooked dinner at home because we have some amateur chefs. Even in mid- October the weather was great for cooking outside both in the large brick BBQ and the wood burning pizza oven. Great fresh ingredients as well as cheeses, pasta and salamis are available b driving a short distance in any direction.

Favorite restaurant - Summer Cave in Polignano a Mare. It is a bit of a drive, but the setting is like nothing else in the world and the food is incredible.

Unique item - Rocca Vecchia swimming hole

The house is well kept, very clean and Glenn made sure everything was up to our fairly high standards.

A Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Trulli Dolce. The house was

comfortable & had every modern convenience. The terrace, pool

and grounds were gorgeous! Glenn & his manager went out of their way to anticipate our needs.

We loved exploring the beautiful countryside and nearby towns.

Locorotondo & Martina Franca were our favorites. The delicious

food & the warmth of the people added to the experience. (An

app such as Google Maps is very helpful)

We would love to return!
