STUNNING TRULLO WITH AIR CONDITIONING, LARGE POOL & WIFI

Alberobello Villa Rental Photos and Description

5 beds, all air con,5 baths,beautifully restored & furnished, sleeps 12

A beautiful traditional 'trullo' farmhouse, Casa Castagno is located in the picturesque Puglian countryside but the sea & sandy beaches of the Adriatic coast are within 30 minutes drive and the town of Alberobello is a short 10 minute drive away.

The house has been renovated and lovingly restored to a very high standard, preserving the conical roofed trulli unique to Puglia, but incorporating modern design which creates a stylish, spacious interior.

Casa Castagno has a spacious, stunning, fitted kitchen, lounge, five beds (3 en suite), all with air conditioning & five bathrooms - 4 in the main building and 1 in the pool house. Unlike so many renovated trulli which are cramped and dark Casa Castagno's rooms are light and spacious.

The limestone floors that run throughout the house extend to the shaded terrace which is perfect for outside dining or simply lying back in a recliner chair with a good book.

Set in an acre of grounds is the newly built 12 x 6m salt water pool with a large pool terrace for sunbathing and surrounded by fields. There is a large sail shade on the pool terrace when the sun becomes too much or alternatively take the path leading to the shaded area under the chestnut tree; ideal for relaxing with a book or an after lunch snooze.

Special Celebrations: Casa Castagno is an ideal location for that special celebration. A highly experienced local team can provide you with a night to remember. They will set up and clear up. They provide the tables, linen, glasses, chairs, chef, waiters, wine, in fact everything you can think of is on offer leaving you to simply enjoy your special evening.

The terrace area can accommodate 30 guests and the kitchen size, layout and location make catering for this number of people hassle free.

Local minibus taxis can be arranged to deliver and return guests not staying at Casa Castagno from any of the nearby hotels in Alberobello.

See photo for table lay out and appearance.

Local Activities : Beaches

The nearest beaches to Casa Castagno (30 minute drive) are lidos along the Adriatic coast at Capitolo/Torre Carne - long, beautiful sandy beaches, safe for children.

Activities

Health Spa

A health and beauty spa is situated only 5 minutes from the house at the Vicktor Country Hotel.

Other Sights include the caves at Castellana delle Grotte & the Zoo Safari Park

The nearby town of Alberobello: Alberobello (8km - 10 mins drive)

Alberobello is a UNESCO world heritage site because its collection of some 1,500 trulli in an urban environment is unique. The trullo is an architectural feature of Puglia, a dry stone building with a conical roof.

Alberobello is an enchanting, 'fairytale' town with many excellent restaurants featuring local dishes, bars and a 'passegiata' for summer strolling. There are also 'agriturismi' (delicious home grown produce) restaurants outside Alberobello and you can sample local produce in its wonderful market.

Many festivals take place in the summer: folk, classical and modern music; dance and theatre, as well as religious festivals with music performances and fireworks. Alberobello is the centre of an annual pilgrimage to the Basilica dedicated to the martyr saints Cosma and Damiano.

Perfect retreat in Puglia

  • 5 of 5
We were a group of seven adults spending 2 weeks in Puglia. Casa Castagno was perfectly located for day trips to the villages and the sea. The house was just as it is described with plenty of room and privacy and is furnished with everything you would need.
The owner, Jeremy, patiently responded to all of our emails and provided us with lots of information before we arrived. The recommendations for the wine cooperative and local restaurants were great. The Wifi cafe and the Conad market in the historic village of Alberobello are just 15 minutes from the house. Jeremy's agent in town was also available if needed.
We enjoyed the large kitchen and patio, cooking meals and sitting around the kitchen table planning our next adventure. We swam in the pool, danced on the patio under the stars and took long walks along the quiet country road watching the farmers working the fields. The countryside is lovely. We even met our "neighbors" who invited us to make mozzarella with them and we invited them back to "our house" for a glass of wine.
We loved our stay at Casa Castagno and our time in Puglia.

Happy to be back!

  • 5 of 5
We were very happy to be returning to this charming villa and we woke on the first morning to clear blue skies and the smell of jasmine and lavender . This Trullo has been sympathetically restored, retaining its charm but also providing spacious and comfortable accommodation with everything you need for a fantastic holiday. Sitting by the beautiful pool helped us to relax from day one but we were glad we made the effort to explore the nearby towns. Don't be put off by the unprepossessing outskirts as the old parts in the middle are stunning and just right for an evening stroll and a glass of prosecco. The food in local restaurants is affordable and some of the best I have tasted anywhere! We found the whole process from booking to departure very simple and we were looked after by the house manager. Can't wait for our next visit to Casa Castagno.

A little slice of paradise

  • 5 of 5
A group of 10 of us spent a perfect 4 days in this superb, beautifully appointed villa. The owners have thought of everything and the property was perfect for our stay. It is very secluded and the surrounding countryside is stunning, yet it is a short drive from the local town and some lovely restaurants; we particularly liked La Cantina. We had a day trip to Polignano Sul Mare which was lovely as well as outings to the charming local towns in the area. However you really don't need to venture very far afield as the lovely villa and pool are so perfect. I would thoroughly recommend this property for a holiday and can't wait to go back.

Amazing trullo in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5
This is a wonderful place: full of character, extremely comfortable, very well equipped and with everything you could want for a complete switch off - with the option to explore a beautiful and unspoilt part of Italy. The house overlooks gently rolling fields which we never tired of looking at and offers total peace (apart from distant goat bells, crickets and the occasional horse whinny) but is within easy reach of enchanting local towns. Within a few minutes drive we found a great supermarket, an authentic deli selling fantastic local hams and cheeses and an amazingly cheap wine store. The pool was lovely and we found it hard to tear ourselves away to go exploring. Communication throughout was excellent and we found the house 'bible' invaluable with its tips for places to visit and great places to eat. We loved exploring Polignano a Mare where we had a fabulous seafood lunch, although our favourite town was Locorotondo, which was just delightful. An eight-course meal at Masseria il Frantoio was an amazing experience - all ingredients grown on the estate and a tour of the gardens and ancient oil press. The beaches were glorious - warm sea even at the end of September. All in all Casa Castagna is a real find and we would not hesitate to recommend it.

Excellent villa in rural location

  • 5 of 5
Casa Castagno is a lovely villa.

The description and photographs on the website are accurate and we found the communication with the owner and the on-site management team to be very good. The booklet in the villa with restaurant recommendations and towns worth visiting became our guide book for the 'what shall we do today' discussions!

We alternated between resting in the peace and quiet beside the pool with days out discovering Puglia.

Wonderful renovated trulli near Alberobello

  • 5 of 5
Casa Castagno is a beautifully renovated trulli a short 10 min drive just out of the fabulous trulli town of Alberobello. The house is very well equipped & comfortable. Lots of space for two families but also perfect for a family of 4 - just like us. The pool is well maintained & a welcome relief after a long hot day of sight seeing at the stunning local old towns & hill top villages. A large terrace with views of the countryside & dry stone walls is the perfect place to unwind for predinner drinks. We thoroughly enjoyed our week & were very sad to leave.

Car: necessary

Casa Castagno is situated in a beautiful countryside location yet only 7 km from the town of Alberobello, a UNESCO site of 1500 + trulli.

Restaurants and coffee bars are plentiful, good quality and very friendly. There are many good shops to explore - ranging from good quality clothes shops through to traditional bakers, butchers etc.

Within 30 minutes drive are many miles of safe, sandy beaches on the Adriatic coast- the best of which are at Capitolo & Torre Canne where the gently shelving beaches make this a very safe place for little ones.

The Grottoes of Castellana are a must to visit. These awe inspiring caves featuring stalactites and stalagmites with underground limestone cavities & long tunnels that branch out 3km in length and 71 metres deep.

The historical and beautiful towns of Locorotondo & Martina Franca are both 15 minutes drive & Ostuni, the white city, can be reached in 40 minutes. Matera, the location for Mel Gibson's film 'The Passion of the Christ', with its sassi (cave houses) is an hour's drive away and a must to visit. Finally Lecce, the stunning Baroque capital of Puglia is about 90 minutes drive and well worth a day out to visit.

Local markets selling wonderful local produce take place in various towns around the area on a daily basis & both Bari and Brindisi can be reached within an hour.

Golf: Although golf is not particularly popular with the local Italians there are some excellent courses within easy reach of Casa Castagno. Even in high season they are easy to book and not busy. In mid and low season you can pretty well turn up and play but it's always wise to check. You can also hire clubs so there's no need to take your own on the plane with you.The 4 closest are:-

1)The San Domenico. A PGA tour course set on the Adriatic coast near Savalettri, 30 minutes drive. This sea is visible from every tee and when the wind blows this excellent course becomes a real test of golf.

2)Riva dei Tessali. A stunning forest course with a charming clubhouse alongside the 18th green to analyse your round over a cooling drink. 50 minutes drive.

3)The Metaponto Golf Course - an 18 hole championship golf course built as a complement to Riva dei Tessali. Metaponto is a course of some 6284 meters, par 72. Boasting an excellent spacious driving range as well as a beautifull renovated Club House (formerly a farmhouse). 50 minutes drive.

4)Bari Alto. Just a few minutes from the city of Bari is the Barialto golf club. The course, created by the American architect William W. Amick and the Italian Giorgio Ferraris, winds for about 6,000 metres between palm trees and centuries old olives, and has five lakes with reeds and water lilies. 40 minutes drive.

Motor boats can be hired in Savalettri, some 30 minutes from the house, either by the day or half day to allow you to explore the Adriatic coast at your leisure.
