This very private building consists of a three-door trulli and a lamia with roof terrace. It was completed in May 2013. The trulli and the lamia were made of local natural stone by local builders in detail according to ancient architecture.
The technology that makes a feel-good holiday possible is state-of-the-art. To mention perhaps the underfloor heating, the generous rain showers, the 'flat screen TV with German, Italian and English program. There is free Wi-Fi.
The beds are equipped with high quality mattresses, which are suitable for every back.
The beautiful saltwater pool is operated without chemicals, open May - October.
The outdoor kitchen with barbecue invites you to a cozy barbecue. And all this, in the middle of an olive grove with fantastic panoramic views and an even more beautiful sunset.
Before breakfast, make your rounds in the pool and enjoy the beautiful sunset in the evening with a delicious glass of red wine.
Situated on a hill, it is the ideal starting point for
Activities to the historic cities or visits to the caves and archaeological sites. For a day at the beach you are spoiled for choice between the Ionian Sea and the Adriatic, both with miles of sandy beaches.
If, after a stroll through one of the many weekly markets, you feel like making your own from the fresh ingredients, the kitchen is at your disposal with all sorts of cooking utensils, spices and oils.
For the cooler season, the entire building is equipped with underfloor heating. Would you like to watch TV on holiday - no problem, the flat screen TV in Trulli and Lamia receive German, English and of course Italian programs. Free Wi-Fi is available both in the building and in the garden.
You will be looked after locally by the Italian couple Franco and Giovanna, who grew up next door, worked for 20 years in Germany and therefore has very good German language skills.
Those who are interested can visit one of the many 'Frantolio' oil mills on site and taste the excellent olive oil there. You can also learn a lot about the production of top quality wines here.
Or you can just relax and unwind in the garden on one of the many seats between almond and olive trees.
True to the motto: Dolce Vita in Bella Italia!
Welcome to the country where clocks slow down.

an unique experience
fabulous house to spend your holidays. the house is very good equipped with the perfect swimming pool which was a gold mine for the kids. thank you to our local hosts
Tranquil. Beautiful. Five-star.
For those looking for an amazingly beautiful, quiet, and stunning home to unwind and soak up the sun....this is for you. The home is immaculately furnished. Everything: fixtures, bedding, showers, linens...first class. The grounds are breathtaking. We enjoyed fresh produce from the garden every day. I think we ate in a different outdoor dining area every day of our stay. The views from the pool are incredible. The caretakers, Giovanna and Franco, could not have been nicer and more helpful. We also took advantage of Henning's expertise in the area and hired him to show us around Ostuni and Cisternino one day. Well worth it. The home is spacious with plenty of space inside to relax, but we were outside all day every day enjoying the pool, views, and grounds. We would return here without question. We flew into Bari due to previous travel and access to the airport. However, I will fly into Brindisi on the next trip to cut down on travel time to the house. One of our favorite vacations ever-largely due to the amazing house and its stunning architecture, landscaping, and location.
Thanks for the nice assessment from USA.
Many of our guests spend time rather at our pool than on the beach ... that's a nice feeling for us!
You will always be welcome to come back to Puglia.
A peaceful paradise in the Valle d'Itria's hills
A wonderfully relaxing place to stay. The accommodation is well-designed and comfortable. We stayed with another couple in the lamia while a young couple were staying in the trulli. The layout is such that both parties had their own private areas outside as well as communal areas around the pool in the beautifully landscaped gardens.
The beds are very comfortable and we loved the stone 'wardrobes' - what a great idea! The shower room was spacious and the waterfall shower was good. The kitchen area is compact but with the outside BBQ area (with another sink) this was not really a problem. There is plenty of outdoor comfortable seating as well as sunbeds around the pool. When it gets too hot, just relax on the comfy cushions in the stone gazebo and read a book - bliss!
The infinity pool is great and you can admire the wonderful landscaping (which, though new is maturing nicely) and the ancient olive and fruit trees around you. We particularly enjoyed picking tomatoes, aubergines, courgettes from the kitchen garden during our stay - what a tasty treat!
The panoramic views from our roof terrace were fantastic, especially sunset over the Valle d'Itria (more comfy seating up here too). Franco and Giovanna will welcome you when you arrive (or show you the way if it's your first visit). Nothing is too much trouble for them, they are lovely people. (NB. They speak Italian and German but not much English - we managed though.) Franco organised a trip to a local wine and olive oil cooperative which was fascinating as the grape harvest was on while we were there.
We certainly intend to stay here again - and soon we hope.
If you need somewhere peaceful to switch off and relax, then this is the place for you. Then, when you want to meet the locals, Martina Franca, Cisternino, Ostuni and Locorotondo are all a short drive away. Don't forget to visit Alberobello - if you like trulli, this is a World Heritage town full of them.
If you want a long sandy beach with a gently shelving sea, the go to Parco delle Dune Costiere which runs between Torre Canne and Torre San Leonardo.
We are very excited about the nice review - thank you!
It would be nice if you would visit us again in Puglia.
You are always welcome!
Best wishes from Puglia (we stay here now)

A perfect hideaway in total luxury!
We enjoyed our stay here so much we hope to book again for next year! It has everything you expect from a purpose built house and more! The lamia and trulli are wonderfully thought out and built to very high specification, so comfortable and rustic my whole family fell in love with it and nothing has been left out of the design. The photographs do not do this property justice it is so beautiful, set in its own grounds with a total panoramic view just out of sight of other properties you can't help but relax and unwind here!
We regularly had our family up for barbecues whom live in Ostuni, you can eat in a few different areas outside, poolside or even on the purpose built terrace with seating! Watching the sunset! It's just stunning! We loved having full access to all of the fig trees and were encouraged to pick our own tomatoes, aubergines, chilli's, lettuces and cucumbers that were growing outside our kitchen door! Our 22 month old son loved every minute in the pool it is a salt water pool yet you wouldn't know it, he would regularly pull me in fully clothed and we used it at all times of the day and night! It's the main attraction for us and why we booked this villa, it had a built in outdoor seating area with lots of cushions and everybody got use from it.
The property was immaculately cleaned and maintained by Franco and Giovanna, who were brilliant and nothing was too much trouble, we were welcomed with wine, fresh fruit and packets of fresh amaretti biscuits, a beautiful touch. I loved having the coffee maker on in the morning and sitting just outside the kitchen door on the built in seats enjoying the peace and quiet!
I would highly recommend this property to anyone who would like to visit Puglia, Ostuni is around a 15 minute drive and around a 5-10 minute drive to Martina Franca both are beautiful towns with lots of restaurants, boutique shops, lots of history and plenty going on in the month of August!
We can't wait to rebook this beautiful property for next year as we have booked town houses before and stayed closer to Ostuni but as we have a toddler this was perfect for the pool and relaxing, we found we didn't have to go anywhere if we didn't want to and it suited us just fine to entertain! There are two fridges here but we felt we could have done with a larger one as we were entertaining a lot of family, but this was the only downside. Overall one of the best holidays we've had in Italy! thanks to Christiane and Achim!
Thank you for the nice review.
We are very pleased to read that you liked it so much. The idea with the vegetables came from Franco and Giovanna, they are always will making it as comfortable as possible for our guests.
We know that the refrigerator for several people is a bit small and we make thougts how we can change that.
We would be very pleased if you spend your vacation again with us next year.
Wenn man zum 4. Mal hintereinander in den Trullo Valle d' Itria fährt, sagt das schon viel aus : das wunderschöne Haus, der riesige von Franco und Giovanna vorbildlich gepflegte Garten, der herrliche Pool mit der sensationellen Aussicht, der beleuchtete Grillplatz, die einzigartigen weißen Städte in der Umgebung, der frische - fatto a mano - Mozzarella und die unglaublich gute Burrata, Gemüse vom Markt, phantasievolle Wurst- und Involtinikreationen vom lokalem Fleischer, tägliche Wanderungen am Wasserleitungsweg samt cafe mit pasticcio bei Gino, Ausflüge nach Lecce, Otranto, Gallipoli....es klingt nicht nur paradiesisch - es ist das Paradies !!!
Uns ist keine Gegend in Süditalien bekannt, wo es sich so ländlich ruhig, ohne Ängste und angenehm leben lässt und gleichzeitig eine so intensive Verbundenheit zu Land und Bevölkerung zu spüren ist. Diese Art von Gastfreundschaft ist in Mitteleuropa selten geworden!
Auch wenn wir heuer pausieren (es gibt noch Ecken in Südeuropa, die ebenfalls entdeckt werden wollen..) - wir kommen wieder und danken Christiane und Achim für ihr Traumhaus, welches wenigstens wochenweise von uns in Anspruch genommen werden kann!
Ein grosses Dankeschön auch an Giovanna+Franco für ihre liebevolle Hilfe und Betreuung ( Wein- , Mandel- und Olivenöleinkäufe retten uns über den Winter ) !

Das dritte Mal im Valle d`Itria- es war wieder traumhaft schön!
Der Übergang von der sengenden Hitze mit 40 Grad im Schatten in ein spätsommerliches Herbstwetter war faszinierend . Der lang erwartete Gewitterregen brachte die Landschaft zum Ergrünen und Aufblühen . Natürlich wurden wir wieder von Giovanna und Franco verwöhnt , besuchten Weingüter , besorgten uns tolles Olivenöl , waren süchtig nach frischen Käse aus der Latteria in Martina Franca....
Als gute Idee hat sich die Anreise mit dem eigenen Auto erwiesen-gemütliche , stressfreie Fahrt von Wien mit Übernachtung in Bologna-so hatten wir Platz im Kofferraum für ein wenig apulisches Lebensgefühl im herbstlichen Österreich.
Danke-bis bald , Stefan , Sabine
So eine nette Bewertung...vielen Dank dafür!
Das stimmt, jede Jahreszeit hat seine schönen Seiten und irgendetwas blüht immer!
Viele Gäste schwärmen von den guten Weinen, Olivenölen und Käse und decken sich dann reichlich mit den leckeren Dingen ein.
Hoffentlich bis zum nächsten Jahr
Christiane und Achim
They have by their own small hill (the terrace / pool) a stunning view of the Valle d'Itria (Valley of Trulli). On the opposite hill, you can see in the evening sun, the ancient cities of Martina Franca, Locorotondo and Cisternino. Next door, in the midst of olive groves and vineyards, passing an aqueduct, which invites long walks and cycle trips. Evening enjoy the culinary variety of Apulia and the hospitality of Pugliesen in the narrow streets of historic cities, the time-honored masserie and trattorias in the countryside or in a sunset on the Ionian Sea. Listing all sights and destinations would certainly go beyond the scope of this page, so just a few examples.
Ostuni - the white city by the sea
Castellana Grotta - huge caves / Caves
Ceglie Messapica - prehistoric Altstadt
Matera - Sassi / troglodyte
Alberobello - Town of Trulli / UNESCO - World Heritage
Cisternino - Beautiful Old Town / park offering panoramic
Fasano - Zoosafari / amusement park / Via Egnatia (part Via Apia)
Martina Franca - age Dignified 'free' city (large weekly market)
The list can be extended almost infinitely. Along the Adriatic Sea from Gargano in the north of Apulia over Bari, Brindisi, Lecce to the tip of Salento in southern Puglia and along the west coast (Ionian Sea) from Gallipoli on Manduria and Massafra. Beaches of different kinds, from the fine sandy beach to rocky cliffs, from the holiday crowds to total solitude - let yourself be surprised.
