'Trullo della Luna' is a farmhouse, the typical building house you can find in Valle d'Itria: it’s a classic four-cone rural trullo. Only the local peasants once used this type of building, now its shapes are appreciated by the entire world and are representative of this Italian region and its ancient culture. This area of Apulia is becoming a new-Chianti, a place where the nature fuses its beauty into the controlled, quiet human environment. I bought this trullo when it was completely abandoned. As I am an architect, I saw it as if its dry-stone blocks were the ruins of an ancient temple, and I have restored it with a great enthusiasm. My aim is to rent it for holiday stays and use it for my familiar purposes. Please visit our web site linked below for further information; it is worth taking a visit (if there is not the link in this page, drop a line and we will send it by email).
I lend my car to our guests!: It is absolutely a necessity to have a car for staying in Trullo della Luna. It is a detached villa in a rural area and a car is needed for any simple movement. If you desire to have our Fiat Panda, just confirm you want it! I don't ask any fee for this. I leave it parked near the Brindisi airport so anyone coming by plane in half a hour can be on the edge of my swimming pool sipping a drink! In the confidential area of my web site there are all the instructions for finding it and use it. In the priviledged section of my private web site, dedicated to my guests, you will find accurate details about the route from Brindisi to the trullo and the shortcut to the sea and to the main attractions. The car is a Fiat Panda. The insurance covers all risks (car driver included). At the end of the stay you'll simply leave it in the same place. I will ask you to fill up again with gasoline! The offer is valid only for parties up to 3 people. Please don't ask any discount if you don't want the car.
Let me point out the importance of this ancient rural architecture: I delighted to visit and study all the ancient ways of doing the trulli (trulli is the plural of trullo). I verified how all small constructive solutions are a concentration of popular wisdom.
The original cones are made without the use of any plaster and the craftsman who was committed to do this type of activity was always a specialised workman.
Nowadays there are only few specialists for doing all these details. I have funded the restoration of Trullo della Luna having clearly the aim to preserve all these aspects.
