Traditional buildings have been completely renovated preserving the original spaces, including the pre-existing kitchen consists of a fireplace and a wood-burning oven.The ancient cistern collects rainwater from the roofs, now used to water the plants and flower beds that surround the complex.In the middle of ...Ideally located

Why Raffaella Spadoni chose Brindisi area

We are Raffaella, engineer, and Billi, graphic

designer. We live in Bologna, Ravenna, Asiago and Apulia. Also a little bit in Hamburg and all around the world, when it’s possible.

The Trullo is part of our lives and our passions: Africa bathed by the same sea, the Middle East with its architecture, the countryside, good food and wine. All this influenced our “logo” reproduced on the iron doors and windows, where holes and studs draw wonderful kaleidoscopes of light. Black and white stands for the two shores f the Mediterranean, the symbols recall Arabian and African Art and iron that colours the apulian earth red.


Car: necessary

(Text automatically translated) The Trullo is located in Contrada Cervarolo, whose name recalls the presence of deer in the foothills of the Murgia, when it was still forested. The first buildings in this area date back to the sixteenth century. A few hundred meters from the trullo, you will meet a beautiful farm with its Baroque church of 1798, formerly religious pilgrimage. The rolling hills of the district still have a low population density. The territory is divided into plots of land of 10,000 square meters with relative home. Many are still frequented by the old owners, at least in the summer season. Others, like mine, have been purchased and restored not only by Italians. The complex enjoys a wonderful southern exposure and is located about 300 meters above sea level, dominating the district with its large cone. Surely it was already inhabited since 1800 and was a landmark for the neighborhood thanks to its wood-burning oven, unique in the area. Even today, it may happen that some old lady arrives on a visit to remember the past ... and browse a bit.

(Text automatically translated) Food, wine and oil: 1.5 km from the trullo following the local road from Ostuni to Martina Franca, it is a food shop old-fashioned, really comfortable, you'll find everything, every day and at all hours. The owner, Maria, is a great cook and has a large wood-burning oven. We advise you to try his pastries, his buns, omelettes artichokes and his bread. Faced with this grocery store will have the opportunity to buy fruits and vegetables, directly into the house of a street vendor. We also suggest "Il Gelso", a herbal well-marked, shortly before dell'alimentari on the right. On the same street there is also a dairy. You will find excellent wines and olive oil mill at the Cantina Sociale di Ostuni, on the ring road, just before the junction to Brindisi.

  • 5 of 5

"My husband & I felt very fortunate to have found such a nice trullo for our stay in Puglia. It really gave us the architectural experience we were hoping for. Our accommodation was much larger than expected and provided us with everything we needed. The entire complex & grounds really was just for us…not like some trullo rentals that are divided amongst other guests. There are 2 bikes in the garage that we never got around to using. Maybe next time!

The location was very quiet since it is out in the country. You do need a car to get around here. But many of the major towns to explore are only 10-30 minutes away.

Although we arrived a few hours earlier than expected, the owner (Raphaella) was very accommodating. While the housekeeper finished getting the house ready for us, we were able to leave the luggage on the premises so we could explore nearby Ostuni (7km away). We definitely hope to come back here some day to do more exploring.

Très bien, mais.....

  • 5 of 5

"Nous étions 3 couples d''amis et donc par forcément avec le même degré d''intimité qu''une petite famille.

Il faut donc savoir que, dans l''unité principale, dont la cuisine fait également office de ''pièce à vivre'', cette dernière n''est séparée de la chambre que par un rideau.

Dans la 2ème unité, il faut traverser la chambre avant d''accéder à la salle d''eau dont les occupants de la 3ème unité sont amenés à se servir puisque cette dernière en est dépourvue.

Dans tous les cas les toilettes ne sont pas indépendantes.

A noter également qu''à cette époque de l''année (1ère semaine de novembre), même si nous avons bénéficié d''une météo plus que favorable, règne dans les ''trulli'' un taux d''humidité très important: nous avons fait fonctionner un déshumidificateur et le récipient était toujours bien rempli à chaque fois; d''ailleurs l''odeur d''humidité est très prégnante.

Ceci étant dit, c''est certainement un très bon plan aux beaux jours pour découvrir la région fort belle, car l''endroit est idéalement situé. La décoration du lieu, ethnique et sobre, est des plus réussie!! En outre, le contact avec le loueur est très sympathique."

Dreaming Trullo di Raffaella

  • 5 of 5

Questo trullo (che è in realtà un piccolo villaggio) è bellissimo, originale sia in esterno che in interno. La nostra vacanza è stato un sogno. Lo consigliamo a tutti, veramente e caldamente.

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo trascorso 15 bellissimi giorni nella pace più assoluta tra il canto delle cicale e voli di farfalle sulla lavanda del bel giardino. Il complesso di trullo, lamia e "cubo" è perfettamente restaurato, e arredato con evidente attenzione ed amore dalla padrona di casa ; si trova inoltre in posizione strategica per visitare Ostuni, Cisternino, Martina Franca e tutte le altre affascinanti località della Valle d'Itria anche se, infine, si resta spesso e volentieri a casa!!!!
