Great place to stay with very friendly hosts

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful spring week in this Trulli!

The welcome from the host Carmelo is hardly better. I found it very attentive that Carmelo had already deposited water and milk in the refrigerator and a well-filled fruit basket beside self-baked pastries stood on the table.

The landlord was always available for advice and action.

The Trulli is perfect for three people with a large double room and a small single room.

The accommodation was very clean and comfortable.

Also in the bathroom everything was great. Even a fairly fast WiFi is available.

The kitchen is small, but it is everything you need and everything works.

Our sunny breakfast we usually took at a smaller stone table in front of the house. The large stone table under the side pergola is great when the sun gets too hot.

The pool was very clean and refreshing and is hardly visible from the outside.

The Trulli is very quiet on a hill with a beautiful view on flowering meadows. Nevertheless you are quite fast in Martina Franca.

As a starting point for excursions the location is very good. We were in Matera, Castel del Monte, Locorotondo, Alberobello, Egnazia, Polignano a Mare .....

I would like to expressly thank our landlord Carmelo. We had the feeling from the first moment to be welcome.

Thank you!

Trulli Scrumptious!

  • 5 of 5

The pretty trullo and location were the perfect introduction to Puglia and come highly recommended. Carmelo was a superb host and even gave a masterclass in Italian coffee making!

There is so much to see and do in the area, whether you want to visit the beach, explore the white towns or just enjoy a ramble in the countryside.

The locals wines are excellent too!

Perfect, relaxing break in the countryside.

  • 5 of 5

We found the property on the home away website and thought it looked too good to be true. Carmelo was flexible and understanding right from the word go, and we knew we were in safe hands. We arrived late at night so could not see the accomodation in all its glory. The following morning we were amazed to take in the beauty of the trullo and it's grounds. The trullo was just big enough for 2 adults and a teenager. We absolutely loved exploring the surrounding area, a car is essential. I still can't get over how beautiful Puglia is, and we didn't want to leave.

The trullo is well equipped and the outdoor space is lovely.

If you are looking for a remote and relaxing holiday this one is for you!!!

C'è solo una frase per esprimere com'è stato per noi soggiornare in questa struttura: un sogno! Il trullo è una "bomboniera", è veramente bello come nelle foto inserite nei siti web dal proprietario. Entrandoci dentro, mia figlia di 5 anni è stata entusiasta, perchè ha avuto l'impressione di vivere nella casa di qualche personaggio magico delle fiabe. E' accogliente, con arredi ben curati, spazi adeguati, fornito di tutto ciò che può servire: lavatrice, ferro da stiro, phon, microonde, fornetto, wi-fi...l'aria condizionata a noi non è mai servita, in quanto le pareti spesse del trullo mantengono un clima fresco e perfetto! Che dire poi degli spazi esterni ampi, curati e ricercati...dopo ogni escursione ci siamo tuffati dentro la magnifica piscina a nostro uso eslusivo ed è stato un paradiso! Abbiamo spesso cenato sotto il pergolato fronte piscina, facendoci delle favolose grigliate sul barbecue a disposizione e sorseggiato l'aperitivo sopra il tetto, perdendoci con lo sguardo nella tranquilla campagna circostante. La Valle d'Itria è un territorio ricco di cultura, bellezze naturali, prodotti enogastronomici eccellenti. Il trullo si trova in posizione strategica per visitare Alberobello, Locorotondo, Cisternino, Polignano, Grotte di Castellana e il mare è uno spettacolo! D'obbligo è avere l'auto, dato che la location è immersa nella tranquillità della campagna di Martina Franca e, soprattutto, perché sarebbe un peccato non visitare a fondo il territorio.

Una menzione particolare merita il proprietario, Carmelo, un ragazzo meraviglioso, che vi accoglierà al vostro arrivo al check point stabilito e vi seguirà lungo tutto il corso della vacanza, se ne avrete bisogno. E' sempre reperibile con un messaggino whats app e sempre pronto ad aiutarvi per qualunque cosa, anche utili informazioni su ristoranti o luoghi da vedere. Bravo Carmelo, torneremo di certo come tuoi ospiti...anche perchè la nostra bimba, Giada, ti adora!

Just perfect - as mentioned !

  • 5 of 5

We (a couple with a 10 yo boy and a a baby boy) spent 2 great weeks in "our" trull, enjoying the pool, the view, the bbq, and just relaxing in the cool inside... while it was 38° outside !

Very well located to travel around and visit the puglian villages, beaches.

Carmelo our host was very helpful and friendly, always available for an advice or just to check if we were fine !

The Valle d'Itria

Trulli, gently rolling countryside, olive oil, white wine, capocollo ham, easy access to the beaches of the Adriatic and the Ionian seas and half a dozen really super, picuresque towns, including Locorotondo, Martina Franca, Cisternino, Ostuni, Ceglie Messapica and the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Alberobello... Welcome to the Valle d'Itria, one of Puglia's most popular and attractive areas!

Set on a high fertile plain in the centre of Puglia, the Valle d'Itria stretches from Putignano in the north to Ostuni in the south, its wooded slopes, vineyards and endless olive groves punctuated by the coned roofs of trulli, those unique cylindrical constructions that are peculiar to the area.

The valley in Valle d'Itria's name is not a a typical valley but rather a Karstic depression that runs between Locorotondo, Cisternino and Martina Franca. This geological phenomenon has also created the fascinatingly beautiful caves of Castellana Grotta, which run for about 3km under the north-eastern edge of the Valle d'Itria.

The caves of Castellana Grotta offer an excellent, educational and fun day trip with children and there are many more diverting activities for children in the area, including the zoo safari and amusement park at Fasano and the magical old town centre of Alberobello, a trulli wonderland that charms and delights old and young alike.

Thanks to Puglia's long slender shape, even if you are in the centre of the Valle d'Itria you are never far from the sea... or should we say seas! An easy drive in either direction - your choice... east or west - will take you to the Adriatic or the Ionian sea, where you can enjoy the long sandy beaches and turquoise waters that contribute to Puglia's great popularity as a holiday destination.

Food lovers too will not be left wanting! Each town in the Valle d'Itria seems to have its own speciality, whether it is the capocollo ham of Martina Franca, the meat bombette of Cisternino (barbecued directly by the butcher for you) or the DOC white wine of Locorotondo. Of course the olive oil is supreme and the cheeses, including the milky delights of burratina, are memorable!

It seems obvious, then, that the Valle d'Itria offers a full and various range of holiday activities for all the family. So why not make it your next destination? Of course, you'll need some fabulous accommodation... and that's what we're here for!
