Media Comments: Amanda Lamb, A Place In The Sun, Channel 4:

'Puglia is one of my favourite parts of Italy. The place oozes rustic charm and character and is the perfect place to escape everyday life and lose yourself in a bygone era. Trulli houses look like something out of a fairy tale and at Trulli Talily you get the chance to experience an authentic piece of real Italy.'

About Ian & Penny Ledger

Before Penny & Ian got married in 2003 they had a romantic idea of owning a trullo in Puglia. In 2007 their dream came true and they used their property design and refurbishment experience to create a little piece of paradise in a wonderful setting of Puglia countryside.

Ian & Penny Ledger purchased this villa in 2007

Why Ian & Penny Ledger chose Brindisi area

We looked at hundreds of plots and property before selecting this trullo, because it is in the most stunning countryside between two of the most favoured historic towns in Puglia.

What makes this villa unique

Rustic charm and history with all the mod cons you need.

Guestbook comments from the manager

A wonderful relaxing stay in a beautiful trullo and a lovely part of Italy. We combined this with a week’s stay in Ostuni – for us a perfect combination. Owner’s website is great – very informative. Thank you.

A pergola provides an extended dining area on the stone patio. Landscaped terraces and courtyards with seating areas and flower beds surround the ancient buildings and look on to the 3 acre plot with citrus trees and olive grove and views of the valley beyond. The courtyard leads to terraced gardens and land separated by low stone walls, each with a variety of established fruit trees and uninhabited valley views. Past a young olive grove, a stone path leads up to the top terrace where you can sit and relax with only the sound of the breeze and occasional wildlife.

Tranquil setting, shoulders drop feeling...

  • 5 of 5

I booked to stay at Trulli Talily as a late break from work, ideally for some relaxing times, and found myself not disappointed.

The rustic yet modernised feel inside the Trulli provided all that was required to cater for the stay. The main bedroom is striking, with the domed roof providing a unique feel, complete with aample sleeping arrangements, large king size bed, wall mounted television if you so wished to use, and french doors opening outwards to the views of the olive trees and grounds surrounding the Truli.

Further accommodation was very suitable for a further couple or children, 2 single beds and a sleeper bed set in a separate spacious room past the main room. Combined with good shower and bathroom facilities (lovely hot shower!), and a rustic feeling kitchen (pleasure to cook in, gas hobs, electric oven / grill, fridge, lovely stone sink), dinner was made and then consumed in the outside area, cleverly landscaped to give you a sense of your own piece of tranquillity.

Everything that we needed was there for us, an evening bbq as the sun set was a real pleasure, relaxing listening to music as there was an ipod dock / speaker unit within the Trulli.

As for the avid TV viewers, there was also a wide range of UK and freeview channels available for those who can't miss the soaps or similar!

All in all it was a very enjoyable and relaxing stay, set in a lovely setting, had that shoulders dropping feeling after about 5 minutes of arriving! Would definitely visit again

Puglia, or Apulia in Italian, is the long strip of land 400km from North to South that makes up the 'heel' of Italy. Trulli Talily is nestled in the heart of Valle d'Itria, probably the most sought after area of Puglia. The Valle d'Itria is an undulating plateau in the centre of the province containing some of Puglia's prettiest landscapes.

Unique to this area are 'Trulli' which are dotted throughout Puglia countryside with olive groves, vineyards, cherry, peach and almond orchards, all neatly partitioned by dry-stone walls. Trulli are ancient cylindrical buildings with thick white limestone walls and stone conical roofs. Often attached are 'lamia', a barrel roofed stone building. These ancient stone buildings were lived in by the agricultural community to keep cool in the heat and warm in the winter. Local expertise is required to refurbish the ancient stone.
