Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday villa in Martina Franca - Trullo Isabella

Trullo In The Countryside, On The Top Of The Hill With A Panoramic View

With panoramic views over the beautiful Puglian countryside, newly restored Trullo Isabella is the perfect location for a romantic holiday for honeymooners or two couples as its flexible sleeping can easily accommodate four people.

Although in a very rural peaceful location the trullo is between the two historic towns of Martina Franca, about 5km and fascinating Alberobello with its 1500 trulli clustered together, about 7km away.

The 300 year old trullo has been sympathetically restored to a very high standard. The main cone accommodates the living area which includes a fully equipped kitchen including a dishwasher, lounge area with sprung sofa bed and dining area with table and seating for four. A door leads onto the terrace.

In the smaller cone is the spacious bedroom which has a king size bed and ample storage. A door leads onto the terrace.

There is a shower room with toilet and wash hand basin which is accessible from both cones.

The property sits in two acres of grounds filled with wild flowers. This is surrounded by farmland dotted with trulli, many still not restored. There is a 5 meter pool overlooking the valley perfect for cooling off in the hot Italian summers, an excellent BBQ area with a outdoor gas burner. A dining table and chairs perfect for al fesco dining under a shady gazebo and sunbathing terrace with comfortable sun loungers and delightful rock garden all around. Trullo Isabella is the perfect place for relaxing and spending quality time with family and friends in a tranquil location.

The property is very well cared for by Chris & Alison who meet all guests on arrival in alberobello and accompany them to the property.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had never been to Trullo Isabella in December so we decided to go over the New Year period and experience the firework spectacle on New Years Eve. What we hadn't accounted for was the snow. Overnight we had over two foot, which turned the landscape into a winter wonderland. Everything looked so beautiful and with the sun out and a cloudless blue sky we spent many hours outside, making a snowman, snow angels, walking the lanes and having snowball fights. The Prosecco was literally on ice, we stuck the bottle in the snow!

Back indoors we were cosy and spent the evenings watching DVDs, listening to music and reading our books. On New Years Eve we ventured outside onto the terrace and witnessed the three local towns pyrotechnics. The sky was illuminated and the snow on the ground enhanced the celebrations. It certainly lived up to its reputation.

The area hadn't seen this amount of snow for 27 years, normally if it does snow it's a couple of inches and gone within a day or two. The day we returned home, 3rd January, the temperature went up to 16 degrees and we were tempted to have a bbq.

We sincerely hope that our 2015 guests enjoy their stay at Isabella as much as we just have.

Fantastic trullo in beautiful setting.

  • 5 of 5

Spent a fantastic week here. Trullo Isabella is wonderfully appointed and has a lovely homely and cared for feeling. A perfect romantic getaway for couples! There are lovely towns and villages near by to explore, with great restaurants. That said, spending time relaxing at the trullo was just as good and the evenings were magical. A great holiday and we hope to return soon!

A perfect, tranquil break in beautiful countryside

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Trullo Isabella for a week. We had come to Puglia for a wedding with 6 friends, two of whom had the Trullo just up the hill from Isabella, and 4 had one a little walk down the hill. This worked incredibly well for all of us, and would be well worth thinking about if you wanted to go somewhere peaceful and charming with a group of friends or family.

Isabella is beautifully appointed, modernised to a very high standard, but still retaining it's undoubted charm. The inside is light and cool in the heat, or warm and cosy in the cold, with a very well-equipped kitchen, comfortable sitting area, lovely bedroom and small but modern bathroom. The inside and outside were spotless and the interior has a very home-from-home atmosphere with lovely personal touches, books, and games.

We were particularly impressed with the outside which is very spacious indeed. We barbecued for all our friends with PLENTY of room to spare! The area around the outside dining area is particularly attractive with well established plants everywhere. The lavender bushes are huge, interspersed with mint, oregano, oleander and a variety of other attractive plants and shrubs and the perfume in the early morning is divine, attracting a huge variety of butterflies. The fields and lanes around the Trullo are a mass of wild flowers and in the evening the nightingales sing from the adjacent Oak wood. The only sounds you will hear will be the singing of birds, the buzzing of bees and the odd tractor.

This was a perfect, incredibly relaxing break for us and we did little else but lie by the pool, (which has a lovely view,) read, go for walks and cook great local food. We had planned to do more sightseeing, but Isabella cast her spell and we saw no reason to leave.....

Quiet and peaceful hideaway that has been beautifully restored.

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I are from the USA and stayed in the lovely countryside house for 5 nights. From the beginning of the reservation all the way to our departure everything was handled superbly by the owners and the agency. The house is located in a countryside setting about 15-20 minutes to the nearest town, so a car is a must. The house has been beautifully restored that has an incredible quaintness about it. In the mornings we would sit outside and have our morning coffee and watch the world go by. In the evening we would have our wine and munchies outside looking at the stars with only the noises of nature. The kitchen has all of the amenities that you could possibly need. The bedroom is plenty large enough with dressers for your clothes, and has a romantic feel to it. The bathroom has a shower that was big enough for my 225 lbs. there is a large living room with a couch and chairs as well as an eating table. There is a pool that we did not use, as the weather was only in the mid 60's.

WiFi is also available.

Overall I would certainly recommend the house to anyone that would love to spend a holiday in a countryside setting with a loved one. Or for that matter, a single person that just wants to get away from it all.

Thank you for a perfect honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you trullo Isabella for the most perfect honeymoon. Quite, secluded and romantic. Perfect! We couldn't have asked for a more romantic time. Maybe better weather, but the trullo is beautiful. Beautifully decorated, beautiful views and the bedroom is like a perfect little den that you step down into.

We had a great time exploring the local areas and tourist attractions.

We will be back!! And hopefully next time we'll be able to have a BBQ on the lovely looking clay oven type BBQ!

Thank you!!

Absolute tranquility.........

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a fabulous find! We highly recommend a stay in this beautiful Trullo in a very peaceful, tranquil location. The Trullo has clearly been very lovingly restored and every need is catered for - with a lovely touch of welcoming bottles of wine and beer! Perfectly situated in the lovely Puglia region to visit many local sites, or just to visit the plethora of excellent restaurants - the food and wine in this region is fabulous and amazing Nablus when compared with Tuscany and Umbria. We will certainly return. So many thanks
