SPACIOUS TOWN CENTRE APARTMENT WITH LARGE ROOF TERRACE IN HISTORIC BUILDING

Alberobello Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful 2 double bed, 2 bathroom apartment, with vaulted ceilings

Wonderfully spacious apartment with magnificent high vaulted ceiling and large sunny roof terrace right in the heart of Alberobello. Ideally located to take advantage of this beautiful town and area or to simply kick back and relax on the terrace.

The apartment, with its own large and sunny roof terrace (20 m2), stands two floors up at the top of a historic building, believed to have been built for a former mayor of the town and has recently been magnificently renovated by local craftsmen in 2006 - the tiles on the floor and bathroom walls are all locally crafted and the newly exposed stonework on the walls is beautiful. The old stone walls retain the warmth in winter and keep it cool at the height of summer. There are two bedrooms - one double bed with ensuite and one twin bed. There is also a separate shower room. The rest of the apartment is spacious and open plan with a kitchen, dining area and living area which leads out onto to the terrace.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • wheelchair inaccessible
  • pets considered
  • non smoking only
  • children welcome

We have just had a wonderful week in this lovely apartment - I can't recommend it highly enough. Having re-read the previous reviews I am having difficulty in finding something new to say so I would just like to say that we agree with all the positive things said. It was a real treat to have all the comforts of home in this spotlessly clean apartment so well located in the centre of town. We loved being able to walk to shops and stroll around the piazza in the evenings. The owners provided plenty of really helpful information and were happy to answer all my queries.

A lovely apartment with everything that we needed in a great location. We enjoyed the time we spent on the roof terrace and did plenty of exploring in Puglia. There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance, a super bakers, deli and weekly market.
We had great weather, found the locals to be very friendly and had some wonderful food and ice cream.
We enjoyed a fantastic 2 week holiday here, would highly recommend and will return.

The apartment was beautiful and well furnished with a stunning roof top terrace. It is located within walking distance of all Alberobello has to offer. The apartment is a great base from which to explore the surrounding Puglia region or just to relax in the sunshine for a week.

Alberobello itself is full of wonderfully quaint restaurants which offer great food accompanied by excellent service at very reasonable prices. Moreover, there are plenty of places to buy fresh healthy produce if you wish to cook. The people are friendly and welcoming and there is a lovely atmosphere about the place. There is plenty to do besides eating; with beaches, swimming pools, local markets and attractions all easily accessible from the apartment. Alberobello has everything you need to enjoy a memorable week or two in the sun.

I highly recommend it.

Fantastic Apartment

My wife and I stayed in this wonderful apartment in September 2012 and absolutely loved it! It has everything we needed and the owners have obviously taken a lot of care and thought about what to provide. The notes and information were a great help and we had a number to call in case of emergencies which gave us peace of mind. The building itself is magnificent and the size of the apartment with its wonderful vaulted ceilings give the place a unique feel. The terrace is a great plus and we really appreciated being first to use the new barbecue - we used it regularly! Alberobello town centre is only a a quick stroll away and we appreciated being able to wander into town for lunch or evening drinks without having to take the car. Parking was easy though and we took the owners advice and always found parking spaces in the streets behind the building. One restaurant we would recommend is Guercio which has a fabulous outdoor terrace in the middle of Largo Martellotta opposite the Trulli. I can't recommend this apartment enough for anyone wishing to stay in Alberobello. We will be back!

Almost perfect apartment in beautiful Alberobello

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 28, 2012
  • Stayed: Jul 2012
First of all this apartment is in a superb location, very easy to get to from the outlying cities either via public transport or car. This recently renovated apartment is so homely and comfortable - I don't think we could have asked for much more - and the roof terrace is an absolute star addition to the package as well, perfect for breakfast, BBQ's or sunbathing.

The rooms are of ample size, perfect for a family of four, plus two bathrooms ensures that you are not tripping over each other in the morning hours. The spacious living / kitchen area is also fantastic, with high curved ceilings giving the whole place a really unique feel.

There are plenty of amenities close by, the best by far being the supermarket across the road, learn a few Italian phrases before you go and your visit will certainly be successful.

The town centre is also only 5 minutes walk away where you can enter the hustle and bustle of Alberobello life, retreating to the peaceful apartment when you have enough - though I don't think that could be possible.

The information provided by the owners was great, I would also recommend Lido Ottagono which you will find by following the beach directions provided.

All in all, the value of the apartment, the facilities, the location etc is excellent.

In addition to this there are plenty of quality restaurants in the local area, I 100% recommend Ristoranti Fidelo which is 10 minutes walk towards in the opposite direction to the centre.

I would like to have given the apartment 5 stars however there were two minor things which prevented me from doing so - minor things which no doubt can easily be corrected. First of all we found that the apartment could get extremely hot in August, whilst this was expected it would have been nice to have some fans (or air conditioning) to ensure a good airflow (the windows banged back and forth if left open). The second thing was that we arrived on a Sunday, which is of course a holiday in Italy, so we were not able to buy things such as milk, bread etc - all of the private rentals we have stayed in before usually provide a welcome pack for the guests consisting of a few basic items (milk, bread, jam, even pasta and a jar of sauce) - this would equate to roughly 5 to 10 euros which is a very small amount to invest in ensuring guests have a comfortable arrival.

Again these issues are very minor, not deal breakers by any means, however if those had been in place I would have given 5 not 4 stars.
Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your comments Scott and we are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay. We have certainly put a lot of thought into what is provided at the apartment and try to make it as much of a home from home as possible. We cannot do much about the heat in August (we have considered air conditioning but do not feel it is necessary for just a few weeks of the year - we go every August and find the apartment very cool compared to the outdoor temperature.) We will certainly look to include some arrival provisions in future.

Alberobello is an amazing place. It is a UNESCO World Heritage site and you can see why it is protected as soon as you enter the town. It has the historic Trulli of course but in its own right it is a small and vibrant town with plenty to see and do. There are markets regularly, festivals and events throughout the year and, as you would expect, many outstanding restaurants which serve wonderful authentic Italian food at very reasonable prices. Jamie Oliver loves Puglia for that reason!

The apartment is very central so everything is within easy reach by foot as Alberobello is not a large town.

The famous Itrea valley is dotted with plenty of other old historic towns perching on the hills - like nearby Locorotondo, Martina Franco and Ostuni, while on the coast Monopoli and Savelletri are definitely well worth visiting.

There are plenty of banks, bars, cafes, and shops in Alberobello. Within meters of the apartment there are bakers, a fishmonger and a small supermarket with excellent deli.

There are plenty of sandy beaches and lidos all within a pleasant 25 minutes drive, and a local swimming pool at a villa which is just 5 minutes away in Corregia.

Other Activities: Cycling, Golf, Walking, beach, sight seeing, relaxing
