Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Brindisi area - Tenuta Acquarossa

Charming And Spacious Trulli with private pool, tastefully decorated

Tenuta Acquarossa consists of two separate properties, which can be let separately or together. Rented together they can provide ample space for large parties up to 14 people. When rented separately they are however completely private as the houses are ca 70 meters a part . They only share the access road, but each house has its own separate and private entrance, parking, gardens and each property has its own private pool.

Trullo di Sotto can accommodate 8 people. It is approximately 120 sq.meters and consists of 3 bedrooms and 2 living areas, one of which can be used as a bedroom, open kitchen with adjoining dining room and 3 bathrooms with shower and toilet, two of which are en- suite. Two of the bedrooms have double beds, while one bedroom has two twin beds that can be converted into a double bed on request. The living room has a sofa bed and can be used as a bedroom for two people. On request a cot can also be provided for any of the bedrooms.

Trullo di Sopra can accommodate up to 6 people. It is about 100 sq.m. and consists of 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms with shower and toilet , both en- suite, open-plan kitchen and living area . Both bedrooms have double beds and two single beds in the living area can be made up for up to two people . On request a cot can be provided int the master suite.

Both house are surrounded by paved terraces and right outside the main entrance there is a large dining table under a covered pergola where you can enjoy delicious food cooked on the garden grill. In each garden garden there is a swimming pool (apprx: 30/36 sqm ) with a terrace overlooking the valley , equipped with 4/6 sun loungers under covered pergolas, where the sun shines from dawn to dusk . The house, garden and outdoor areas are nicely lit so that you can enjoy long summer evenings outdoors. The garden is filled with olive trees and fig trees (just eat straight from the tree in August - figs like you've never tasted them!), pear trees, almond trees and of course hundreds of lavender bushes that give the garden a lovely scent.

There is parking within the property gates for 3/4 cars.

Both properties are tastefully decorated to a high standard ensuring you a comfortable and luxurious holiday experience. Up to 1.5 meters thick walls ensure a comfortable indoor temperature day and night , even in the hottest months. The kitchen and bathrooms are well equipped and there is also a Nespresso machine (but remember to bring coffee capsules ). The property is connected to the public water network , so you can safely drink delicious water straight from the tap. In addition, there is also a wi - fi connection, but keep in mind it is not a landbased line, so the speed will vary. .

About the services offered

Included in the rent is a welcome service, undertaken by our English speaking Italian partner. She will meet you in the city and take you to the property at the agreed time. She will give you a brief introduction to what you need to know and will also be your contact person on the spot if anything should happen you need help with. The rental price also includes linens , shower and bath towels and beach / pool towels for all guests, changed weekly for stays of 2 weeks or more . Final cleaning is included in the price for all stays, while for stays lasting two weeks or more, there is a light weekly cleaning of the property in connection with the change of linen and towels. If desired, additional cleaning can be purchased for an hourly rate of 10 Euro. This must be agreed in advance. Underfloor heating available at additional cost. English speaking babysitter or chef to come to your home and cook are also available but must be arranged in advance, price on request.

About the weather

Puglia has stable dry and lovely weather, and summer starts in May and lasts until October. July and August are the hottest months and temperatures can reach over 30 degrees. However, the property is approximately 340 meters above sea level, ensuring a gentle wind and a dry climate, even in the hottest months. The swimming pool is not heated but will usually have comfortable bathing temperature from mid-May to September. Beach season is also from May to September

How to get there

The location of the property is such that a car is necessary. Cars can easily be rented at the airport or in train station in both Bari and Brindisi .

The nearest airport is Brindisi (about 40 min) while Bari airport is about 1 hour's drive away. Ryanair, Lufthansa and Easyjet fly direct routes from many English and other European airports. Alitalia and Ryanair fly domestic routes from either Rome or Milan to these airports 10 to 12 times per day.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Received via email from the guest:

We had a fantastic holiday in Trullo di Sotto. The house itself is super and the pool is great – the kids were in it all day while the grown-ups enjoyed the sun-loungers.

They even provided some fantastic good wine at our arrival in the house. We spent most of our days in the house eating lunch at home, and ate out mostly every night. The fantastic produce available in the local shops, allowed us to have many nice lunches at the house. We were met professionally at our arrival and overall got great service and were given lots of good tips throughout our stay. They also took us to see an olive oil factory, great fun for big and small. They even arranged an evening where the Italian “Mamma” came and made food for us at the house. And it included teaching the children how to make homemade pasta – very popular with the kids. On one occasion the biggest girls went horse-back riding, which was also a big success.

The house turned out to be perfect for a party of 4 adults and 4 children, as the two smallest kids slept in the living room on the couch. We got good information about the place beforehand, containing many good ideas and very good descriptions of everything.

This is really a place we would want to visit again, and can really recommend it to everyone. Our only concern is that it will be difficult to find it available once everyone discovers how great it is…

  • 5 of 5

We were absolutely satisfyed staying in this beautiful, well equiped trully, our childrens spent crazy time in pool, and we had amazing time in relaxing terrase near it :) I was afraid before arrival of horses farm which is near, but it didn't disturbed us at all, our childrens every morning was visiting nice little zoo which is in horses farm. All info about places near ( supermarkets, beaches, restaurants and etc) given for us by Nina was very useful. We would highly reccomend this accomodation for everybody!

Thank you, Nina !!!:)

The villa is amazing and coolest place I ever stayed in!

  • 5 of 5

I visited puglia with 7 friends for my Bachelorette weekend last week. Nina has been very helpfull and fast responding during the booking process. Angelita is the best host you could ask for. We arrived really late (01.00) and she got us sandwiches and icecream At a local shop, so amazing! She helped us out with Any queries whether it was renting a taxi or having dinner or drinks at wonderfull places.

The villa is Trulli amazing :D. Everything is so cosy and nicely decorated and you have a lovely loungespot underneath the gazebo next to the pool or in front of the villa. You don't really need to leave the villa to have a fabulous time. If you do want to leave, within no time you are in the coolest places like ostuni. We also visited beaches in otranta (a bit further out) and Polignano. If you want to go to a club we can advice torre café in il capitolo.

As mentioned in other reviews this is a hidden gem that is likely to be fully booked if to Many people know about its coolness. Anyway I am dying to go back!! And certainly Will.

perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay, the house was really perfect, very clean, lots of towels. Also the garden and pool area was very nice. The only thing we really didn't like was the horse farm nearby.

Owner's Response: I am happy to hear that you found the house and gardens to your liking, and nothing less than perfect! On the other hand I am sorry to hear that you did not appreciate the local riding center nearby, but I understand of course that this kind of structure may not suit or interest everyone! However, I am relieved to understand that this did not impact your perception of the house or the quality of your vacatiion, as the riding center, even if nearby, is not visible from the any part of the property, positioned on the other side of a small hill. I hope to see you again on another occasion! Kind regards, Nina

Trevligt hus med allt man kan önska sig!

  • 5 of 5

Vi var två familjer, 4 vuxna och 3 barn. Huset var perfekt storlek för oss. Extra plus för 3 st badrummen.

Huset var trevligt inrett, komplett köksutrustning, härliga sällskapsytor samt ett mycket trevligt poolområde.

Rekommenderar starkt detta hus!!!

Fin, snabb och vänlig kontakt med ägaren vid hyra av huset, kändes tryggt och seriöst.

A great stay in beautiful surroundings!

  • 5 of 5

We were two families living in each our house. The quality and facilities were at very high standard and we didn't miss anything. Especially we loved the pool facilities and spent a lot of time there with the children. The local host provided excellent service and helped us with all our questions and demands. For example, she showed us good places to eat in nearby towns, she helped us book different things when we couldn't speak enough Italian to be understood, and she arranged a cook for us to come to our house and make Italian food (which tasted lovely!) The property was clean and well-maintained. We certainly recommend these houses for two families to rent. Perfect distance between the houses so we could be together anytime we wanted, and still get privacy when we wanted.

Would love to come back!

  • 5 of 5

A very nice house with all the facilities we needed. We rented a car and visited the nearby villages. All very charming and with a good atmosphere. The beach club White Beach is highly recommended. And you have to visit the local Olive Mill for sure. All together a relaxing vacation - just what we needed. We would love to come back to this house and this part of Italy <3

On the Adriatic coast on Italy's heal exists a vacation paradise, called Puglia. The area is a favourite destination for Italians on holiday in their own country, and is only marginally affected by international tourism. Here you will find white sandy beaches with crystal clear waters in addition to a number of picturesque villages like Alberobello, Cisternino, Ostuni, Locorotondo, Martina Franca, Polignano a mare and Ceglie Messapica to name but a few. The area is also known for its unique round trullo-houses - like our house for rent.

About the location

The holiday house lies undisturbed in a lovely little valley filled with by olive-trees and figs. There is no traffic passing through, but the property is by no means isolated. With the exception of the last 100 meters up to the property, there is a paved road. It is a 7-minute drive to Cisternino, while the nearest small town, Casalini, has a grocery store and a handful of trattorias, only 2 minutes by car or a short walk away ... The Adriatic sea and the beaches are just 17 km away and there is ample parking along the coast . There are a number of free beaches in addition to beaches which offer rental of sunbeds and parasols.

The days in Puglia are well enjoyed by the pool, on the beautiful beaches and of course visiting all the picturesque villages nearby where you can go in for a walk in the afternoon and have a delicious ice-cream, attend a concert in the piazza at night, visit a beautiful church or eat dinner at a nice outdoor restaurant.

But there is far more to do for those who get restless after a while!

Horseback - riding: In walking distance from the property there is a riding centre offering riding lessons and excursions in Valle d’Itria.

Golf and spa: offered in Savelletri ( 20 mins drive ) in connection with a number of 5 star hotels that have been established in recent years.

Amusement Parks : Also in Savelletri where there is an amusement park, zoo safari and aqualand

Shopping: Puglia has a long tradition of ceramics , and there are outlets all across the region. On the outskirts of Bari there also is an outlet village. There are also nice markets on selected days in the different towns where you can find everything from local produce to antiques .

Visiting a Winery : Puglia is a major producer of wine and grapes like primitivo and negroamaro are well known all over the world. Visits to vineyards may be arranged.

Day trips: For those who like to get around a bit when you 're on vacation, we can recommend day trips to Baroque Lecce or Bari, a harbor town with a charming old town and bustling night life . Alternatively you can travel to the Ionian Sea (bottom of Italy's boot) , but remember swimwear, here too there are wonderful beaches. If cities are not what attract you most, you can drive a little further south and visit the nature reserve of Torre Guaceto, with incredible beaches that give the feeling of being on a tropical island. And even further south, you will find Otranto , with a lovely beach right in town and a charming old town.
