Trulli - A Great Experience!
We had a great week exploring Puglia and staying in this beautifully restored Trulli. The outdoor space is really amazing, very private with beautiful views of the surrounding vineyards and olive groves. This is where you'll want to hangout as the common area in the Trulli is rather small. The Trulli itself is very pretty with excellent showers, with firm but comfortable beds. The master bedroom in one of the cones was very pretty. The kitchen was fairly well equipped and we did cook in a few nights.
Be prepared that there are a limited number of electrical outlets in the Trulli - perhaps only one per room. This was challenging as these days everyone has cell phones and Ipads to charge - so you may want to bring adapters that can handle more than one device at a time.
While we were there we visited the nearby town of Cisternino which we really enjoyed. Great restaurants (Sant Anna and Osteria la Valle)and the people were very friendly and helpful. Overall, the food and wine (Primitivo di Manduria) in Puglia is delicious and a very good value.
We also really enjoyed Martina Franca, great shopping, Monopoli, Polignano a Mare, Ostuni, Lecce and Alberobello (very touristy - but a must see for all the Trulli). We took a night from our week to travel to Matera and that was also a highlight of our trip. Highly recommend that.
Contact with the owner was easy, the property manager was there to meet us when we arrived and we had no problems the week we were there and no need for any assistance. We booked early to receive a 10% discount, so I was surprised to see that the price had dropped after we booked for the week we were going to be there. I inquired as to whether they could adjust our price, but they did not. Just be aware that the price may change and make sure you are getting the best deal - I don't think we did.
We would recommend this property and would stay there again if we were to return to Puglia.
