Overview

About the property

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.

Trullo scrumptious!

  • 5 of 5

Very impressive, love the location and private pool. Generous welcome pack to sample the local wares to get your holiday off to a great start. BBQ area well equipped for those warm evenings on the patio. Ideal for nature lovers, look out for the wild orchids in and around the garden and numerous birds around the area. Great base to explore the many interesting places to visit.

Great escape to wonderful Trullo Isabella

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a very pleasant week in this peaceful, idyllic location. The trullo has been sympathetically restored and everything is provided for a memorable holiday (including a very useful sat nav). Despite the extreme windy conditions, we made every attempt to make the most of the outdoor space and enjoy the fabulous view. We ventured down the track to explore Alberobello, Locorotondo, Martina Franca, Lecce, Monopoli and Matera (our favourite even in the only rain of our holiday). The trullo underfloor heating and wood burning effect fire made for comfortable, cosy evenings when it was chilly and windy outside. We would recommend Trullo Isabella to friends and family and look to return when the weather is warmer.

Beautiful and tranquil family get away

  • 5 of 5

We've just arrived back from our second time at Trullo Isabella. This time we took our 6 year daughter with us. The weather was incredible, hot when we arrived so the first thing we all did was cool off in the pool. The Trullo is as lovely as before, having all the modern conveniences of home but with a few new additions to enhance the property. We went to the local Zoo Safari, Alberobello, Martina Franca and walks around the lanes accompanied by Lola and Rudi the 2 friendly dogs who live up the hill. Evenings were mostly spent on the terrace, enjoying a BBQ and soaking in the view which never fails to impress. On Saturday evening the fireworks in the distance were spectacular. Hopefully we will return next spring to witness the beauty of the flowers.

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!
