Trullo Fumarola is a wonderful place all year round which offers lots of things to do for the whole family. The pool is open from mid-April through October. The central garden and pool area are shared with the other house on the plot (a recently built Villa which sleeps 6-8 people). Garden, pool and pool area (with large shaded dining area) are very generously sized, in order to offer enough space to each party, in case both houses are occupied. We are confident we can recommend this property to anyone, including families with small children (our own kids grew up here). The property is a tranquil, safe and child-friendly environment, the pool is protected by a fence. The garden has a great variety of fruit and olive trees, some hundreds of years old.
The Trullo, built around 1820 by our ancestors, has been completely restored to the highest standard whilst keeping the original features, such as the floor made of ancient lime stone and the exposed arches. Unlike many Trulli it is very light and spacious. It has its own outside dining area, limestone-courtyard and private garden area with pine trees.
There are many attractions in the area: Lots of little towns with wonderful historical centers, Unesco heritage sites like Alberobello (just 15 minutes by car) and Matera, Lecce with its amazing baroque, lots of beaches on both coasts, countless typical restaurants for all budgets...Upon arrival you will find your complimentary Welcome Kit with useful information about the area, such as restaurants, places to see, things to do etc.
