The best property and location

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful place to stay and the surroundings great with olive and fig trees surrounding the property. The property is very spacious and very clean and the facilities are excellent. The property manager is very helpful with plenty of recommendations for places to visit and eat. We visited with another family with teenage children who really enjoyed the location and property. Highly recommonded.....

Trulli Excellent

  • 5 of 5

Our two families of 4 spent 7 gloriously sunny days at Trullo Genna last week. The property is outstanding and our host Susan did everything possible to make our stay run smoothly. She was always available to answer queries (and did so very promptly). We took trips out each day (there are some fantastic nearby towns to explore and coast within 40 minutes). Prices for food and drink are excellent in the area (had to check that a 5 Euro cafe bill actually had the four drinks included and we had a fantastic 2.5 hour lunch for 8 with wine, deserts and coffee for 180 Euro). We returned hot every day to the excellent pool that is a great size and the large outdoor communal area was our base for barbecues, pizza (baked in the outdoor oven) and excellent home cooking.

The fittings and equipment are of a high standard, the beds comfy and the area peaceful and relaxing.

We would recommend a visit to all and would have happily extended for another week if possible.

Mediterranean idyll

  • 5 of 5

Imagine reading in a hammock under a gigantic oak tree, the cicadas buzzing in the background, a light breeze to keep you cool and a lovely swimming pool a few paces away. Imagine a starry night, no other noises than the ones your party produces, birds and crickets singing, the outdoor oven alight and pizza cooking inside.

We had a delightful stay, enjoying the peace and calm, the space of this lovely cluster of trulli, the drive through the almond and olive fields when back from an excursion, the table tennis for competitions, the comfortable and picturesque rooms overlooking the fields.. The property was well maintained and clean, help available with small hiccups, it truly was a holiday to be raccomended.

everything was nice, special comment to Suzann

  • 4 of 5

•The listing description accurate regarding the location, layout, facilities, the only comment is that this property is more dedicated to family rather than a group of adults (one bedroom and bed size too small (for kids))

•The property was clean and well-maintained

•Our manager provide a very good customer service

•I Would recommend this property to a friend or relative

Beautiful and typical house

  • 3 of 5

The property is beautiful , typical and very quiet. The swimming pool is fantastic! All was very good!

There are lots of things to see near trullo Genna!

But, there was not enough equipment in the kitchen ( cup, pan, coffee spoon), no micro wave! The washing machin was outside and dirty! We think that the price is too high for the confort! We used to rent this kind of house, and the prestation is insufficient!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and I am delighted you all had a great holiday. Trullo Genna is for up to 10 people and has double sets of everything to ensure it is fully equipped. I am unsure however you felt there was not enough equipment when you were only a group of 6. You are correct, there is no microwave. There is an oven and hob in the fully equipped kitchen however in general clients enjoy cooking in the fantastic pizza oven or barbecuing fresh local produce rather than microwaving. We felt it was more comfortable for clients to have the washing machine next to the drying area so, in keeping with the trullo it is housed in a traditional stone built cupboard there. The property is always beautifully presented as the other reviews have mentioned and I am delighted your review did say "The property is beautiful , typical and very quiet. The swimming pool is fantastic! All was very good!" It was lovely to meet you all and I am glad you all had a lovely holiday here.

Great stay with friends at beautiful Trullo Genna

  • 5 of 5

We spent one week at Trullo Genna with a group of ten friends, and it was a great stay. The trullo is located in the middle of the country side - very quiet - with another property at least 100 metres away. There are many opportunities for sightseeing in the area (e.g. Alberobello, Grotte di Castellana, Polignano a Mare, Locorotondo, Ostuni, Matera, Lecce). The rooms were very clean and all necessary items (towels etc.) were provided. The swimming pool and area around it are perfect for relaxing in the sun. The living room and kitchen are on the small side for 10 people, but you spent most of your time outside anyway. The WIFI did not always work, but we didn't mind really about that. Susan was very responsive when we had questions - she also arranged two Italian guys to come over and make delicious pizzas in the pizza oven attached to the house. We had a great time, so don't hesitate to book!
