About the property

16th Century Architecturally Restored Trullo with Large, Entirely Private, Pool

Beautifully simple yet stunningly stylish, this brand new two bedroom trullo conversion sits in its own two acre idyll. Only 2 minutes from the Michelin starred restaurants of Carovigno and 10 minutes from the ‘white city’ Ostuni, yet with no immediate neighbours, this stunning house offers total seclusion and serenity. Chic modern, designer interiors and luxurious furnishings blend perfectly with an original trullo structure suspended 500 years in time. With every room opening up onto established, well groomed gardens and olive groves, and, of course, an enormous, entirely private 10m x 4m swimming pool, this truly is the Puglia destination property for those for whom only the very best will do.

A character property with a great pool

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely week in the trullo and would highly recommend it. Matt, the owner, was extremely helpful right from the start helping us to find flights and making some excellent recommendations for restaurants, shops and places to visit. When we first arrived at the trullo we were welcomed with fresh flowers and a fantastic selection of local produce to enjoy which provided us with everything we needed without having to go shopping until the following day.

The trullo has lots of character and original features. It’s in a very private location with a lovely outlook over olive groves from the terrace and swimming pool. The property, gardens and swimming pool were all immaculately clean and the pool was cleaned whilst we were there. The kitchen was well equipped with everything you would need including a washing machine, dishwasher, large fridge and freezer, kettle and toaster. It also had a tv, dvd player, free wifi and a barbeque outside. We were provided with plenty of towels for the bathroom and also to use by the pool.

We enjoyed visiting different places in the morning and having some great lunches out, then returning to the trullo to use the pool and relax. Our teenage daughter loved the swimming pool and spent hours in there!

Carovigno the local town has all the shops and restaurants you need and Ostuni a 5 minute drive further away is beautiful. There are beaches within a 15 minute drive of the trullo. Within an hour’s drive there are even more interesting places to visit.

Thank you Matt and Nyks for a lovely holiday.

Das Domizil entsprach nicht der Beschreibung im Internet. Es ist nicht hochwertig ausgestattet. Es war ein unerträglicher Geruch im ganzen Haus. Der Vermieter wollte uns erst nicht die Fenster zum Lüften aufmachen lassen. Unser Verdacht ist, dass die vielen kleinen Tiere (Asseln, Ameisen, etc.) mit Insekten Spray vernichtet werden sollte. Auf dem Sofa und im Bett waren fremde Haare (im Bett Schamhaare). Wir verbrachten die Nacht im Auto und reisten am nächsten Tag ab. Der Vermieter zahlte keinen Cent zurück. Nicht mal die verbrauchsabhängigen Kosten, die nie angefallen sind. Wir fühlen uns getäuscht und möchten vermeiden, dass es anderen auch so geht.

Gratest place ever for Honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

We've just spent 9 days at this beautyful, quiet, green and luxory Place for Honeymoon and enjoyed every single minute! The area feels like end of the World - a lovely interieur, overwhelming nature around and nothing to hear. The trullo is made up perfectly - the people taking care of it were pretty nice and supporting from the very first contact until we 've had to leave finally. Pickup worked perfectly fine, the owner came along in between just for asking if everything is fine there and our main contact there was available for any kind of questions. The pool was cleaned also in between.

Having the trullo as "home base" it was quite easy to get relaxed to all the interesting and nice places within the middle of Puglia with all the historical and architectural hotspots, it just took 1 hr maximum to get there and to be back at the trullo in the early afternoon for enjoying the huge pool, uncountable olive trees around and gorgeous antipasti and wines from several small stores within Carovigno.

So, highly recommended from our side, we already started thinking of coming back again for one of our next wedding anniversaries! Thanks a lot to both, Matt and Hazel, and all the best for you both!!

Beate & Frithjof
