Perfect house, perfect region

  • 5 of 5

This property is absolutely beautiful, the detailed interior of the house just stunning.

I would recommend this to a group or family as well. We were 6 adults and 4 children and it was perfect for us.

The region is great with all the nice towns nearby like Alberobello, Cisternino, Ostuni, Polignano a Mare and many more. Beaches are also near. I've rented many houses in Italy and this must be the best. Also fell in love with Puglia and will be back for sure. Special thanks to Laura, who took care of the property and her wonderful dog Nur :) we loved him too. It was really helpful to have her near whenever we had something to ask.

Thank you so much for this beautiful vacation!

Owner's Response: I was very happy to have you as guests at my house. It`s great that now also north european people, as you coming from Finnland or the group before you coming from Norway, are coming to visit this beautiful south region of Italy. Here it`s possible to have a very relaxing and peaceful holiday at my home, but at the same time an amazing cultural experience visiting the surroundings. There is so much to see, that one week is not enough....! What I recommend to all the guests that are wishing to visit the towns, is to try to come in Puglia also in May, June or September: it`s not so crouded, the temperature is perfect and the nature is amazing and colourful. Kirsi, come back again...I`m waiting you.

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

We (6 adults and 6 children) spent a week here and enjoyed it a lot. The house was even nicer than we had anticipated, the view of Valle D'Itra was stunning, and the overall atmosphere was quiet and relaxed. The size of the house was perfect for 3 families with small children, and the outside areas are very spacious and beautifully kept. The kitchen was well equipped, and the wood-fired bbq allowed us to prepare both fish and steaks to perfection.

The owner (Laura) lives in a small house on the property. She was very friendly and helpful, and spent a lot of her time taking care of the garden, cleaning the pool and looking after the property.

We had never been to Puglia before, but instantly fell in love with the region. Several beaches and numerous small towns are within short distance (by car) from the property.

Puglia Perfection

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the pleasure of staying in Laura's home for the final two weeks of an eight week exploration of Italy. Our group of 3 adults and 6 children (11, 11, 10, 9, 7, 6) loved every minute of our stay.

The trulli have been beautifully and tastefully renovated. The bedrooms are generous with comfortable beds. Unlike most kitchens we experienced in Italy, we had plenty of space to prep and cook meals for our large family. We were all able to sit at the dining room table as well as the patio table outside adjoining the kitchen so we could eat together. We particularly enjoyed the large and numerous windows which flood the interior, decorated in style of the American Southwest, with natural light.

The outside of the property is truly (trulli) a gem. The views of the rolling hillsides and olive orchards are gorgeous. After weeks of sightseeing the children loved being able to run, swim and explore the property's little cave. We never received complaints of boredom while there. The lounge chairs by the pool proved to be the perfect place to devour books while the kids played.

Laura lives on the property in a casita. She has two great dogs, Nur and Frida. Nur is quite social and playful and we and the kids enjoyed having him around and playing fetch with him. Frida kept to herself but is also very gentle. Laura was wonderful to share conversation with. She was also incredibly helpful with information about seeing Puglia, however, she was very respectful of our privacy and was never invasive.

The house is as centrally located in Puglia as you can hope. The drives to Ostuni, Cisternino and Martina Franca are about 20 minutes. To Bari, Brindisi and Lecce it's just about an hour. The most beautiful beaches I have ever been to are all within an hour and are very easy to get to. I was initially intimidated by the thought of driving in Italy after spending time in Rome, Florence and Naples, but Puglia was quite simple to navigate and the traffic easy to manage.

The October weather in Puglia proved to be perfect. We spent every day outside. Laura is a wonderful and gracious host who we now consider a friend. I would return to this home every year if I could manage it. Be sure to not hesitate in booking this place if you have the chance. Grazie Laura!
