Exceptional Holiday Home

  • 5 of 5

We were drawn to this Trulli because of the heartfelt reviews that we read about the property.

It was everything that we hoped it would be and much more.

Previous guests had not exaggerated,

Beatrice and Vito the owners who we spoke to with the help of Paola the agent were charming and the best hosts we have ever encountered.

We have stayed at numerous owners direct properties over the years and this was one of the best we have ever experienced.

All our needs had been anticipated and there was absolutely nothing we could want for in the property.

The "welcome pack" was outstanding and very generous. The huge display of fresh fruit alone lasted us 2 weeks!

We were especially thrilled to have a coffee maker similar to our Nespresso machine at home with capsules provided. When we asked where to purchase more they were replenished the next day!

Beatrice is an accomplished cook and brought us a beautiful meal one night, which was outstanding, The following week we were greeted at the door by her husband holding a huge plateful of decorated almond biscuits which she had freshly baked for us.

Finally we want to give a big thank you to Beatrice and Vito and also to Paola who was very helpful interpreting for us and answered all our queries on the area.

Excellent hospitality impossible to forget

  • 5 of 5

Trullo del Mandorlo is a vacation villa perfect for two adults and two children which combines the history of the area’s architecture with modern equipment and decoration with personal touch and a lot of taste. Once you arrive Vitto and Beatrice, the owners, have made sure that you have everything you would imagine and more (fruits, local products, wine, olive oil, juices, bread, coffee…). The swimming pool with jacuzzi, the ping pong table and the gardens behind (with fruits and vegetables that you can collect for your table) and in front of the house provide an excellent relaxing experience for adults and games for the children. The villa is perfectly located close enough to Locorotondo in order to get anything you need but also in a quiet spot in the middle of olive trees. The area offers several villages and areas to discover, including Alberobello (designated as UNESCO World Heritage) and beaches. Vitto and Beatrice, the owners live close by and are always available in a discrete manner. But more than this, they are very sweet and friendly people, excellent hosts that put the extra effort for their guests.

The sum of the above made this vacation an experience that our family will never forget. The villa and its owners surpasse the excellent score. We will definitely come back.

Exquisite experience from start to finish

  • 5 of 5

One of the best places I have ever stayed. Vito and Beatrice are simply the best hosts I have ever experienced. They are attentive and have looked after every detail in this accommodation. The welcome package is staggering - they are both so kind and thoughtful. Equally they are not there constantly so you have the benefits of a very private stay but superb hospitality there as and when you need it.

The Trulli has everything you need down to the last detail and is ideal for family or couples. We were a family with 2 adults and 3 children and it was just about the perfect size.

The surrounding areas Locorotondo and Alberobello are so pretty with lots to do and places to eat so the Trulli is in the ideal location.

We would highly recommend this as 5 star plus plus accommodation - a truly authentic Italian experience.

Where dreams come true....

  • 5 of 5

It would be easy to say: A charming rural retreat in Trulli with a private pool. However: It´s much more than that and hard to describe in just a few words. Let´s try it:

Trullo Mandorlo and its garden area is the perfect place for a quite and relaxing holiday far away from any traffic but not out of the world – just 10 minutes by car to Locorotondo with its lovely restaurants and shops.

Trulli Mandorlo is a charming well-equipped house with every comfort you could imagine. Everything is of very good quality and quite modern: TV-set, dish washer, laundry, coffee maker, air condition, alarm equipment, ... Additionally, you will find basic facilities of everything: Oil, spices, detergent, napkins, barbecue coal up to coffee caps. Furthermore, we were surprised with an overwhelming welcome package, as we have never seen before. Not only this made our stay as comfortable as it could be.

The garden is beautiful and you can harvest a lot of fruits and vegetables for your own private lunch and dinner.

After having a bath in your own pool with a bubbling zone you can have a table-tennis-match or just sit in different relaxing furniture.

But now comes what makes your stay unforgettable: Vito and Beatrice – the owner of Trullo Mandorlo - and their two lovely sons. Never met such warm-hearted landlords before!!! Beatrice is our favourite Italian cook - her Foccaia, Pasta, Pollo, Tiramisu and sweets are unforgettable. And Vito surprised us with his self-prepared wine and olive oil.

Vito and Beatrice invited us to a private Italian dinner that became unforgettable – we thank you so much for that evening.

Summarized and in a few words: 10 of 10 points.

It would be great to meet you again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words Markus, we are glad that you enjoyed your stay. Vito and Beatrice always do their best to give comfort to our guest. They take care of every detail about the house and always look after everything. But most of all, we are very very much pleased that you enjoyed their pleasure to share time together and the typical dishes Beatrice has been glad to prepare for you. You went away as friends, and this is great! Hope to see you again some day in the future, you will always be welcome!!

Un séjour inoubliable

  • 5 of 5

Séjour d'une semaine pour deux adultes et deux enfants, dans un trullo niché au coeur d'une campagne paisible, entouré d'amandiers, de pêchers et d'oliviers. Le Trullo del Mandorlo a été restauré avec goût et contient nombre d'équipements de qualité. Béatrice et Vito, les très sympatiques, propriétaires sont très disponibles et ont à cœur d’offrir un accueil qui sort de l’ordinaire. Ainsi, nous avons eu le plaisir de découvrir un réfrigérateur rempli de victuailles locales, des vins du crû, une huile d'olive produite par le propriétaire et une imposante corbeille de fruits variés. A l'arrière de la bâtisse un jardin potager rempli de délicieux légumes est mis à disposition de leurs hôtes. La piscine, plus belle en réalité que sur les photos, permet de profiter des heures les plus chaudes de la journée mais reste aussi utilisable en soirée grâce à un système d’éclairage intégré. Idéalement situé au cœur de la région des Pouilles, Locorotondo offre de nombreuses et variées opportunités de visites qui permettent de découvrir plusieurs sites classés au patrimoine mondial de l’UNESCO mais également de magnifiques villages ou villes riches en patrimoine archéologique et architectural ou encore de profiter des températures très agréables de la mer adriatique. Des vacances et des propriétaires que nous ne sommes pas près d’oublier…
