About Mark Sear

This is a family owned property. It is named Lachelie after Lachlan and Eleanor, my two (now grown up) children. The picture above is Elie reading a book by the pool. I fell in love with Italy when I visited there with an Italian friend in 2003. He said "you will always want to come back". He was right. Within 2 weeks we owned our little trullo and part of Italy.

Mark Sear purchased this house in 2003

Why Mark Sear chose Martina Franca

Everything about the region is amazing.

The people.

The places.

The food.

The culture.

Our property is nestled in a quiet part of the countryside and our neighbours are fantastic people. A real mix of Europe. Italians, Brits and Belgians - with the occasional Swede thrown in for good measure also!

The truli is basically a very happy place.

Everyone who visits loves it - why not see?

What makes this house unique

The pool is amazing and with the solar heating its warm enough to swim in late at night and early morning almost all year round.

Pure bliss

  • 5 of 5

Perfect romantic getaway. This traditional rural property is comfortable and well-equipped, with thoughtful “extras” like washing up liquid, dishcloths, bin bags and even coffee provided. The pool is fabulous. The management company is friendly and extremely responsive so the few issues we had (we ran out of water twice and discovered a wasps nest!) were quickly and painlessly resolved. Even the pool was cleaned once a week!

You will be a fair way from civilisation in this property. That was exactly what we wanted but be warned: there is not much in the way of shops, bars or restaurants this side of Martina Franca so you have to be organised, enjoy your company or be prepared to drive a lot! Having said that the drives are worth it with the white cities of Martina Franca, Locorotondo and Alberobello all within easy reach not to mention the coast. Martina Franca is particularly vibrant in the evenings.

If you’re looking no further than a simple stay in the sun, your own pool and a BBQ look no further. ..

Très bon séjour dans les pouilles

Une agréable semaine dans cet endroit charmant. Un très bon point de chute pour allier découverte de la région et dolce vita. Calme, discrétion, simplicité, bon accueil... à découvrir. Voiture indispensable.

Séjour agréable et atypique

  • 3 of 5

Nous avons passez un agréable séjour dans cette région trés jolie de "Trulli", l'habitation est atypique et la piscine est appréciable avec une bonne température dû au système qui la réchauffe.

Point a amélioré, la toiture (côté salon) qui n'est pas trés étanche lorsqu'il pleut....

Et l'aspirateur sans puissance a changer.

The location is rural but only a short drive from Martina Franca, which is an incredible town. Martina has literally dozens of cafes and even more restaurants. With a twice weekly market and superb churches and other places to visit, the region is simply fabulous for a wonderful holiday or short break.
