Why Paolo Renzoni chose Taranto

He was also in charge of collecting tax as well as taking care of the justice administration.

What makes this villa unique

Estate 'Pignataro' was built with local stone; it's thick walls are large over 3 meters, so inside the trullo the temperature is naturally cool without to use air conditioners. Ideal for romantic holiday, in the trullo you can sleep well and relax listening birds singing.

Estate 'Pignataro' is the ideal place to spend unforgettable days and romantic nights in the quiet of the countryside of Puglia.

From the pool you can enjoy a view over the valley and it's solarium is an ideal place where you can stay under the sun lying on comfortable deckchairs. The park has illuminated paths, many benches and suggestive gazebo, covered with ancient vineyards, with tables for reading or drinking a good wine.

Trullo del Castaldo is situated at 2 Km from the old city of Locorotondo, from the top of a hill dominating the “Itria valley”, with its “cummerese”, and its narrow streets paved with antic stones. Not to miss its many antic churches; its most delightful cycling along the country paths of Locorotondo.

At 6 km from Martina Franca, the so called: “Baroque pearl” where every July, an Opera Festival is performed, called “Festival della valle d’Itria”.

At 8 km away you can visit the centre of Alberobello, famous in the world as “ Capital city of the trulli”. Not far from Cisternino, and the white city situated on a hill named: Ostuni. For whom loves the sea at only 15 km there are the lovely beaches of Torre Canne and Monopoli with their crystal waters, not far away from the famous caves of Castellana Grotte. For the enjoyment of adults and children, at only 10 km in the Fasano area, there is the Zoo safari, the largerst in Europe.

The Puglia region

Crystal blue sea, green countryside, castles, cathedrals, watchtowers that dot the southern coast, noble palaces, historic quarters, smallest towns, museums, and picture galleries. In Puglia you can experience a multitude of emotions. Land of faith and age-old traditions, you can find the feasts of patron saints, local festivals, and suggestive historical re-enactments, artistic creations, natural landscape,safeguarded in many protected areas. Puglia is land of trulli, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, aggregated in Alberobello or distributed throughout the countryside of the Valle d’Itria. But Pulia, is a land of flavors and fragrances, with bread, fruits, wine and oil coming from magnificent, centuries-old Apulian olive trees, just steps from the sea.

The Locorotondo area

White Locorotondo is the most beautiful balcony in Murgia dei Trulli. From its belvedere, you can admire territory that at times seems emotional: a mosaic made of small vineyards surrounded by stoned walls, scrubs of Mediterranean forests and silver olive tree gardens that surround the old manor farms, thousands of trullo houses spread in the villages. The small old centre of Locorotondo is closed into its circular perfection of stones and mortars, once upon a time marked by walls. Characteristic peaky roofs made of grey stoned “chiancarelle”, called cummerse, exalt the facades, that inside represent the typical environment of star vaults.
