We had a fantastic holiday in Trullo di Sotto. The house itself is super and the pool is great – the kids were in it all day while the grown-ups enjoyed the sun-loungers.
They even provided some fantastic good wine at our arrival in the house. We spent most of our days in the house eating lunch at home, and ate out mostly every night. The fantastic produce available in the local shops, allowed us to have many nice lunches at the house. We were met professionally at our arrival and overall got great service and were given lots of good tips throughout our stay. They also took us to see an olive oil factory, great fun for big and small. They even arranged an evening where the Italian “Mamma” came and made food for us at the house. And it included teaching the children how to make homemade pasta – very popular with the kids. On one occasion the biggest girls went horse-back riding, which was also a big success.
The house turned out to be perfect for a party of 4 adults and 4 children, as the two smallest kids slept in the living room on the couch. We got good information about the place beforehand, containing many good ideas and very good descriptions of everything.
This is really a place we would want to visit again, and can really recommend it to everyone. Our only concern is that it will be difficult to find it available once everyone discovers how great it is…
Lettings from Saturday/Sunday to Saturday/Sunday preferred and minimum 1 week, but other days/lenghts may be considered - please enquire.
Underfloor heating charged at 30 EUR per day
Cost of heating is not included in the price, and if used charged with 30 EUR per day.
We have just returned from a wonderful week at Trulli di Sotto. It is a beautiful place, tastefully decorated and very well equipped with everything you could possibly need and all spotlessly clean.
Nina was quick to reply to any queries during the booking process and gave us much information to help with our holiday. Also, Angelita, our contact whilst out there was fantastic, friendly and very helpful. She made booking with restaurant and taxi for us!
We would love to return! In all a very relaxing holiday which was just what we needed. Thank you Nina and Angelita
Absolutely loved this Trullo and the surrounding area. The Trullo is stunning, having been sympathetically restored and extended, retaining original features but with a chic,luxurious, contemporary feel. Everything has been well thought out and works perfectly. Indoors is remarkably spacious and the outdoor space is fabulous with abundant shade, seating, tables, cushions, loungers. Pool fab, BBQ large and spotless. The entire property is very clean and well kept. The owner is super to communicate with and the local contact was just as friendly and helpful - even walking down to the local stables to translate our request for hacks and lessons!
The surrounding area is wonderful. An easy 45mins from Brindisi airport, 25mins from beautiful sandy beaches, 10mins from the marvellous town of Ostuni with its splendid views and fabulous restaurants and retail. Super local food markets.
We were sorry to leave and will definitely return.
We were absolutely satisfyed staying in this beautiful, well equiped trully, our childrens spent crazy time in pool, and we had amazing time in relaxing terrase near it :) I was afraid before arrival of horses farm which is near, but it didn't disturbed us at all, our childrens every morning was visiting nice little zoo which is in horses farm. All info about places near ( supermarkets, beaches, restaurants and etc) given for us by Nina was very useful. We would highly reccomend this accomodation for everybody!
Thank you, Nina !!!:)
I visited puglia with 7 friends for my Bachelorette weekend last week. Nina has been very helpfull and fast responding during the booking process. Angelita is the best host you could ask for. We arrived really late (01.00) and she got us sandwiches and icecream At a local shop, so amazing! She helped us out with Any queries whether it was renting a taxi or having dinner or drinks at wonderfull places.
The villa is Trulli amazing :D. Everything is so cosy and nicely decorated and you have a lovely loungespot underneath the gazebo next to the pool or in front of the villa. You don't really need to leave the villa to have a fabulous time. If you do want to leave, within no time you are in the coolest places like ostuni. We also visited beaches in otranta (a bit further out) and Polignano. If you want to go to a club we can advice torre café in il capitolo.
As mentioned in other reviews this is a hidden gem that is likely to be fully booked if to Many people know about its coolness. Anyway I am dying to go back!! And certainly Will.
We enjoyed our stay, the house was really perfect, very clean, lots of towels. Also the garden and pool area was very nice. The only thing we really didn't like was the horse farm nearby.
Vi var två familjer, 4 vuxna och 3 barn. Huset var perfekt storlek för oss. Extra plus för 3 st badrummen.
Huset var trevligt inrett, komplett köksutrustning, härliga sällskapsytor samt ett mycket trevligt poolområde.
Rekommenderar starkt detta hus!!!
Fin, snabb och vänlig kontakt med ägaren vid hyra av huset, kändes tryggt och seriöst.
On the Adriatic coast on Italy's heal exists a vacation paradise, called Puglia. The area is a favourite destination for Italians on holiday in their own country, and is only marginally affected by international tourism. Here you will find white sandy beaches with crystal clear waters in addition to a number of picturesque villages like Alberobello, Cisternino, Ostuni, Locorotondo, Martina Franca, Polignano a mare and Ceglie Messapica to name but a few. The area is also known for its unique round trullo-houses - like our house for rent.
About the location
The holiday house lies undisturbed in a lovely little valley filled with by olive-trees and figs. There is no traffic passing through, but the property is by no means isolated. With the exception of the last 100 meters up to the property, there is a paved road. It is a 7-minute drive to Cisternino, while the nearest small town, Casalini, has a grocery store and a handful of trattorias, only 2 minutes by car or a short walk away ... The Adriatic sea and the beaches are just 17 km away and there is ample parking along the coast . There are a number of free beaches in addition to beaches which offer rental of sunbeds and parasols.
The days in Puglia are well enjoyed by the pool, on the beautiful beaches and of course visiting all the picturesque villages nearby where you can go in for a walk in the afternoon and have a delicious ice-cream, attend a concert in the piazza at night, visit a beautiful church or eat dinner at a nice outdoor restaurant.
But there is far more to do for those who get restless after a while!
Horseback - riding: In walking distance from the property there is a riding centre offering riding lessons and excursions in Valle d’Itria.
Golf and spa: offered in Savelletri ( 20 mins drive ) in connection with a number of 5 star hotels that have been established in recent years.
Amusement Parks : Also in Savelletri where there is an amusement park, zoo safari and aqualand
Shopping: Puglia has a long tradition of ceramics , and there are outlets all across the region. On the outskirts of Bari there also is an outlet village. There are also nice markets on selected days in the different towns where you can find everything from local produce to antiques .
Visiting a Winery : Puglia is a major producer of wine and grapes like primitivo and negroamaro are well known all over the world. Visits to vineyards may be arranged.
Day trips: For those who like to get around a bit when you 're on vacation, we can recommend day trips to Baroque Lecce or Bari, a harbor town with a charming old town and bustling night life . Alternatively you can travel to the Ionian Sea (bottom of Italy's boot) , but remember swimwear, here too there are wonderful beaches. If cities are not what attract you most, you can drive a little further south and visit the nature reserve of Torre Guaceto, with incredible beaches that give the feeling of being on a tropical island. And even further south, you will find Otranto , with a lovely beach right in town and a charming old town.
