Recent guest Brian, from Texas, writes in his family's review:
'We have rented using VRBO in many countries including Australia, U.K., France and Portugal to name but a few. The Trulli property is clearly our favorite and it was extremely difficult to leave.'

The four of us all loved staying at your trulli! You and Steve have done a
wonderful job making it homey and charming. Every day was an adventure....but we
found time each day to walk in the 'neighborhood' ---picking figs, grapes,
almonds. The late afternoon sky always provided a fantastic sunset, and the
evenings were equally spectacular.
The pool was enjoyed by all....especially Donny, who started and ended each day
with a dip. We walked to the mini market a few times, and found it to have
wonderful cheeses, salami, produce, bread...and wine! We cooked quite a
bit....but enjoyed many of the restaurants in Ceglie and Martina Franca.
A bit too much time was spent driving to Puglian towns (in no special
order--)--Ostuni, Ceglie, Locorotondo, Fasano, Savalettri, Costa Merlata, Oria,
Alberobello, Porto Cesare (great market!), Polignano al Mare, Lecce...and we got
caught in a flash flood/wild hailstorm on our was to Salentina.
But each day, we made sure that we returned to the trulli in time to open a
bottle of wine, take a swim, a walk, or just enjoy the sunset. All in all---Steve and Glenn--we loved loved our time in Puglia at your trulli.
We cannot thank you enough!
Our romantic trullo with pool & two lamia sits on a rural countryside hilltop in the Valle d'Itria amongst a grove of olive & almond trees, and is ideally placed for easy access (less than 10km) to Martina Franca, Ceglie, Cisternino & Ostuni. Ostuni's beaches are accessible in about 25 minutes by car. The property has 180-degree views of the surrounding hills and valleys, dotted with trulli, masseria and local vineyards -- where you can visit and taste the locally produced wines. Local amenities e.g. supermarket, restaurants, bars are only short drives (or bicycling!) away. Martina Franca hosts an internationally-reknowned music festival (13 July - 4 Aug '13) and the UNESCO World Heritage site, Alberobello, is a 15km drive passing through the beautiful city of Locorotondo. The Adriatic, westward to the white beaches of Campomarino, is about an hour's drive. Lecce, the beautiful baroque jewel, makes for a perfect day trip. Brindisi Airport: 40 min Bari Airport: 1 hr 10min
