About the property

Romantic hide away close to Alberobello & 20 minutes from the sandy beach

Very charming and characteristic cottage near Alberobello, 20 minutes from the beach. The house consists of 4 different spaces with coned roofs (trulli). Attached to the trulli is also a lamie (the former stable) , a rectangular building constructed with old stones. Although renovated, the owners wanted to keep and restore all the old characteristics of the house, giving it a lot of charm with its arches, old pavements & little niches. In 2008 a swimming pool (12x5) was built with next to it a bedroom and bathroom, suitable for 3 persons. The pool has an electric hard top cover providing security with little children. The house has an original functioning old fireplace and an old outside pizza oven. The best pizzas have been baked in this oven. You can ask Maria (who lives 3km from our trullo), our Italian help, to teach you. To read the reviews of the Gran Turismo journalists go to the link: They visited and reviewed the trullo in May 2010

The cottage is located in the middle of the countryside. A car is needed. You can fly directly to Bari or Brindisi. Ryanair is one of the airlines operating direct flights from England to Bari. From Bari you have to drive an hour to reach our trullo. Myair (Italian low cost airline) flies directly from Amsterdam to Bari.

Super schöner Trullo in Alberobello

  • 5 of 5

Schon bei der Zufahrt wussten wir, dass der Urlaub in dem Trullo fantastisch werden wir...zwischen dem Bauernhof durch, bis an das Ende der Schotterstraße und dann steht man vor so einer Oase.

Da der Pool mit seiner Größe so ansprechend ist, konnten wir die Kinder nur schwer zum Strand bewegen, allerdings gibt es in der Umgebung eine Menge Dinge zu sehen/besichtigen, dass der Weg das Ziel geworden ist.

Mit den Tipps von Marijke und von Maria haben wir einen wundervollen Urlaub in Italien verbracht und was ein schöner Teil von Europa.

Es hat uns allen super gefallen und wir hoffen, dass wir mal wieder kommen werden, herzlichen Dank auf diesem Weg an Maria, auch für den Pizza-Kurs und die Gastfreundlichkeit.

Quiet, peaceful, great pool, rustic

  • 4 of 5

Total peace and silence: no neighbours, no internet, stars visible at night, surrounded by olive groves, distant lowing of cattle... A very comfortable trullo, which stays cool even on hot days. Rooms are charming, especially the trullo room. It gets a bit crowded if 8 people have to stay inside, since the common space is small and dark, but if the weather is good you will be outside and in the pool. The pool is great, deep for diving and kept at a great temperature. We spent all day at poolside. There is a pizza oven for which you will be given a bow-saw and invited to cut your own wood from the nearby dead hardwood trees, adding a bit of sweat to your pizza! Lots of bugs (the screens could use replacing, and wasps seem to like to make their nests in the roof tiles and electric metre).

The owner was prompt to reply and the caretaker is flexible to meet you on arrival and departure, very friendly and helpful, and has many recommendations, even taxi service in a pinch. The house also has notes with advice from previous renters.

It's only ten minutes from Alberobello and we went to the summer opera festival in Martina, just 25 minutes away. Local markets have everything you need for low prices. You can get a boat cruise in Monopoli for offshore swimming.

A great place to stay in Valle d'Itria. I'd go back in a heartbeat.

Charming little Trullo, in a beautiful landscape,

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful and quiet house, in the countryside of Alberobello.

Very nice views from the house, and from the swimming pool without any neighbour.

Litlle house, very well decorated, and with all the equipment required in the kitchen.

this house is very well located with many touristic sites to visit.

the pool has a good size and with all the equipment required too.

Very nice house owner who did everything to facilitate our stay, with Maria in situ to prepare the house.

We had a very nice time in this house, and recommand it without any doubt.

Sublimes vacances

  • 4 of 5

Très jolie maison pleine de charme avec une vue magnifique et des oliviers à perte de vue.

La piscine est très agréable, Maria très serviable, calme et serenité sont les mots clés de notre séjour! Nous reviendrons!

Attention aux moustiques!

There is so much to do and to see in Puglia and especially in Vall d'Itria. Our trullo is just 4 km from Alberobello, an unesco site. Furthermore you will find a lot of nice other characteristic old italian villages and cities within a quarter of an hour to half an hour drive from our house. Some examples: Cisternino, Martina Franca, Locorotondo, Ostuni, Monopoli, Pulignano al mare, Conversano. Nice sandy beaches you can find at Torre Canne. Our favourite lido is family owned lido Bizzarro (exit Torre Canne Sud), You can enjoy real fresh seafood here. In the surroundings of our house you can find numerous restaurants of different specializations and in the area there are lots of good local wines to discover. If you are in for a bit longer trip (1,5 hour) the old university city of Lecce and the old cave city of Matera are definitely worthwhile the visit.
