About the property

Converted from old farm buildings this 5 trulli complex has been beautifully restored to the highest standards of workmanship and sympathetic reconstruction.

A dining room with modern glass table and designer chairs for six people. Stone kitchen with hob, oven, dishwasher, microwave, hand blender, coffee machine, processor and implements for the person who loves to cook.

Large sitting room with fireplace. Safe and alarm.

Doors from all the rooms go out to the inner courtyard where you can sit under the fig tree. A separate utility room with sink and washing machine is situated outside the house, so no noise. Terrace with stone table and chairs for six under a pergola overlooking the hills towards Martina Franca and Locorotondo across the Valley D'Itria. Stone path winds down to the pool 12m x 4m with stairs for easy access. Fence around the pool area makes it safe for families with children. Covered gazebo where you can eat by the pool. Lights in the trees for nighttime. Established olive, walnut and fig trees in the field around the pool and designed garden with local, Mediterranean plants.

Parking area under trees for shade. You have your own drive from the road up to the house with a large security gate. WiF both internal and external, television, dvd and music centre.

The walls and floors are constructed from local stone and there is underfloor heating for rentals in the winter time. Fans are available for summer but trulli are cool in the summer even when it is very hot outside.

About Sharon Bierer

Family from Denmark, UK and America who love this part of Italy so much that they have made it their second home. We run a small charity sending dental volunteers to Burma to treat orphans and Henrik is an NHS dentist.

Sharon Bierer purchased this villa in 2006

Why Sharon Bierer chose Ostuni

Because we know the Contrada and the neighbouring two families who are locals that have lived in the area for generations. We have become friends and they hoped that when this property went up for sale we could keep it within our small group of owners.

What makes this villa unique

Quiet, peaceful, extremely beautiful, yet close to the shops and buzzy, lively Cisternino, the centre of the 'in' crowd in the Summer months. Beaches that go on forever, excellent local food and wine........

The views are wonderful.

Trulli amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Great location. Lovely views. Peace and tranquility guaranteed! This trullo is spacious and comfortable with everything you could possibly need for a fantastic holiday. A thoughtful welcome pack was included. Lovely outdoor spaces too - we never felt on top of each other! It's in the country so take mosquito bite cream and lots of it. Would definitely recommend a stay here!

Perfect choice, perfect Trulli

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in this perfect Trulli. It is simply perfect, great view, lovely pool, table-tennis, super kitchen, nice sitting room for the odd rainy afternoon - we loved the location too. You are 30-35 mins from the sea also, which is a big bonus. We had a great time, big thanks to Sharon and imma.

Perfect accommodation in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a weeks holiday. It was our first time in Puglia and it was the ideal location to explore the best of the region. The Trulli itself was idyllic and a wonderful home full of character and little touches that meant that we felt comfortable and had a perfect holiday. Sharon, the owner, was incredibly helpful at all stages of the booking and I would certainly recommend it to anyone looking to visit Puglia

Beautiful Puglia, wonderful Trullo house - a home from home

  • 5 of 5

The house is lovely, beautiful setting in the rolling hills, with extensive views of Trullo dotted rural landscape and with Locorotondo in the distance - even prettier at night. The house, pool and gardens are pretty, and give a very authentic Puglian emotion - everything outside and inside the house is elegantly framed. The rooms are large and airy under the stunning Trullo domed roofs and the house feels nice and cool even on 36 degree days. We panicked when there was no AC but there are fans and we felt very comfortable day and night. The furniture/beds good quality, comfortable and the level of equipment for kitchen, TV/movies/games, bikes, towels, umbrellas/torches was exceptional - one of the best equipped Villas we have stayed in. Great to have Mosquito nets on all doors and easy to use alarm system. The owners and the housekeeper were there to welcome us and close by, and proactive at being in touch if you need something.

Loved it. The location is also a highlight as Cisternino old town is a hidden gem in Puglia - lovely square, cafes, restaurants, boutique shops - but most of all great people, ambience - bustling at night but not too busy, not too loud, just gorgeous Italian vibe. And Locorotondo, Alberbello, Ostuni etc all close. Lovely walks nearby also good for running/bikes - there is 22km trail that runs through Itria Valley next to the house!

We stayed in our 2nd week in a larger more expensive (+50%), stylised Trullo - but honestly missed this house and it's home from home quality and great location.

Fantastic Home/Trulli/Fantastic Hosts

  • 5 of 5

We spent 6 days here recently, and loved it. The Trulli has been renovated to such a high standard and is truly luxury. The pool was fantastic at any time. The location was great, with a reasonable drive to the beach and a short drive to some lovely villages in the Valle d'itria. We couldn't recommend it highly enough.

Contrada Fantese is an old masseria (old farm), consisting of only three properties/homes. Our neighbours are locals who farm the land and mend the surrounding trulli. It lies in the middle of the valley d'Itria, surrounded by fields and there are superb views of Locorontondo and Cisternino from the garden. The area is close to all the famous towns of the area, Martina Franca, Alberobello, Ostuni and Ceglie Messapica (renown for its restaurants). The sea is about 25 minutes drive away with beautiful sandy beaches. The area is full of wild flowers, olive, fig, walnut and almond trees and local vineyards.

Cycle on the famous Italian cycling routes (2 minutes from the villa), visit the Bhole Baba buddhist centre for yoga and meditation, run through the countryside, visit the vineyards, cheese shops.

Puglia has wonderful, child friendly towns with the best food in Italy. Ostuni, Locorotondo, Lecce, Otranto and so, so many more. Meander leisurely before dinner with all the locals, chatting, stopping for an aperitive, seeing local architecture which has been influenced by Swabians, Arabs, Normans, Spanish.....

The ice cream you will buy in gelaterias is invariably made in house by local people with ingredients that they have grown!

You can visit the markets in each of the towns to buy your fruit and veg.

This is Italy as it used to be 30 years ago but the North has changed, Puglia much less so. The people are charming and helpful.

Local wines can be bought in cooperativos for as little as 2 euros a bottle. For just a little more you will enjoy really excellent primitivo, negroamaro and malvaisia wines. Wines in restaurants are rarely marked up like they are in the UK, a joy!

Your children can run about in the fenced gardens/fields whilst you sit by the pool and read a book, watching the swallows swoop down for a drink from the pool and the butterflies landing on the lavendar bushes. Life should be so tough!
