About Jenny Turner

I am married with 3 children, 2 grown up girls of 22 and 19 and a son of 12. I used to run my own business that focused on supporting organisations to develop excellence in customer service - something I am passionate about. This focus on a positive service experience is at the heart of what I look to achieve for our guests. I know myself how I want to be treated and I look to ensure our guests get a really positive and memorable experience when they choose to holiday in our villa.

Jenny Turner purchased this villa in 2004

Why Jenny Turner chose Tarent

We fell in love initially with the position of this property with its truely stunning views across rolling hills. Compared to the many others we looked at this was the one that stood out from the crowd. We have not been disappointed. The views during both day and night are spectacular - it really offers peace and tranquility and yet is only 5 minutes drive from Alberobello. The other attraction as well as being a trullo that exudes character, was its' unique layout being in 2 wings. We love to holiday with friends but also value a degree of privacy and independence at times which this offers. The icing on the cake is the close proximity to Alberobello, a thriving and totally unique town with a wonderful atmosphere and many good quality restaurants where we love to try the local wines and thoroughly enjoy all the wonderful italian culinary delights.

What makes this villa unique

The Layout - we can offer something a little different for the more discerning guests that want the enjoyment of holidaying with other family or friends but also wish to have some personal space and privacy.

The stunning views afforded to you as you sit by the heated pool relaxing in the peace of the countryside

A pool that is enclosed offering greater peace of mind when travelling with young children

A management team that share my vision of providing a truly memorable experience for our guests and go above and beyond in meeting requests for various leisure pursuits - whether it be pizza making lessons, a private chef or for the more active golf or sailing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time at your villa in Puglia. We stayed there with our whole family (9 persons). The rooms were all very well equipped and the garden and the terrace were beautiful. The best thing for our three little children (3, 3, and 6 years old) was the swimming pool. They spent so much time in the water, swimming or playing with the little plastic boat.



The landscape around your villa is very beautiful. We liked the "Trulli" and the pretty little towns, Alberobello, Martina Franca, Ostuni and most of all Locorotondo. We had our meals either on the terrace or at the restaurants in Alberobello which were very good. Our favorite was the very friendly restaurant "Fidelio".



We were also very pleased with the agent in Puglia, especially as we arrived nearly two hours late (problems with the flight). The supermarket was closed and our grandchildren were too tired to have a meal in a restaurant. So the agent led us to a place where we could order pizzas to take away and he waited with us until the pizzas were ready.



We all are very sure that we will come back to your wonderful place!

A wonderful villa for a perfect family holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We spend two weeks in the amazing villa , Trulli Sulla Colina, near Alberobello. We are a Dutch extended family of 3 generations, 12 people, 6 adults and 6 children, age 8, 6, 5 ,4, 3, and 1 year. We felt at home.

The house was clean, toys for all the kids, good beds and soft towels.

It was comfortable having two very complete kitchens to cook for a big family. We ate very often altogehter at "home".

The first week the weather was not that good, so the pool was cold. The second week the sun came and the solar heating did her work well. We could all relax. A top priority was to have a safe place for all the young children, - the fence off lockable swimming pool area, with its non slip pool surround.

Thanks Jenny for your good service. We would like to recommend Trulli Sulla Cortina to all our Dutch friends and relatives.

Owner's Response: So delighted you had such a good time. We so want for our guests to feel at home and do try and focus on all the details that make the difference around both comfort and safety. We always have found that the 2 wings with the 2 kitchens etc is a real bonus for large families as you have all the benefits of communal living but with the room to spread out and achieve some independence too. Glad you enjoyed the heated pool. Hope to see you with your friends and relatives for a return visit. Jenny

Beautiful house with a very nice view

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the holiday house for easter with a large family. The fact that we could split over two houses and have some privacy was great. The view was also very impressive. The pool was still a bit cold, but some of us did go for a swim. It is nicely secured for children, therefore we could enjoy being outside without worrying. Situated one hour from Bari and Brindisi, and 5 minutes from Alberobello the region gave us enough to explore.

The only drawback would be the humidity in the big house during the first days, but after a few days of heating, it improved much.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed the house, views and pool. Being traditional stone houses they take a while to warm up at the start of the season and do respond well when being lived in. The humidity in this wing was likely due to a delay in being able to run the heating due to an issue with the thermostat which got fixed on the morning of your arrival.

Great property big garden everything you need

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the first 10 days of April in the house with 10 people and three generations.

The house has an excellent location, but you need a car. It was clean has very good music installations, toys for the kids, good beds, soft big towels. We felt at home.

It was comfortable having two very complete kitchens to cook for a big family, and we ate very often altogether at “home”. The children (4 and 6) could safely play in the enormous garden and we didn’t have to worry about the swimming pool (gated). The bigger played a lot of table tennis.

I loved taking my breakfast at the small terrace before the kids were awake and enjoying the sunrise and the beautiful nature.

We were very lucky with the wetter and we could use the swimming pool (I must say we’re Dutch).

Allison, the local agent, received us and arranged a pasta evening. She’s kind and offered us a late departure, what was appreciated.

The only negative thing of our stay was the humidity of the big house in the beginning, but the heating was good, so after a few days this problem was resolved. We didn’t have to pay for the heating. Thanks Jenny.

In short, we had a very good holiday and we can recommend the house in Alberobello without hesitation.

Owner's Response: So glad you had such a lovely holiday and felt at home with the property, gardens and the pool. Delighted you got to enjoy the Puglian sunshine as would agree, there's nothing quite like sitting on the trullo patio in the early morning sun just listening to the countryside sounds and enjoying the wonderful views.

Great house in a stunning location. Everything required for a large party to enjoy Puglia.

  • 5 of 5

The house had everything our party of 11 (5 adults and 6 kids) needed to enjoy a great holiday in Puglia.

Situated in beautiful countryside a short drive from Alberobello and with easy reach of Bari airport.

The house itself is very comfortable, staying cool despite the heat outside. Very clean, with all mod cons and a nice mix of new and antique furniture. The pool area is very well presented with beautiful tiling, plenty of sun loungers and lovely views over the surrounding countryside.

Easy drives to old towns like Locorotundo, Martina Franca, and to the coast at Canne Torres.

Alberobello has a selection of good restaurants, as well as supermarket, post office etc.

A car is a necessity as there are no shops or restaurants within easy walking distance.

Alison, the local agent, was very helpful, giving us tips and advice and organising a home pasta making lesson and dinner.

Lots of books and toys to keep everyone occupied as well as bikes, table tennis, darts etc in the games room.

Owner's Response: Delighted you all had such a good time and thrilled you mentioned in particular the tiled pool and the pool garden. We had this all refurbished this year and have to agree it does look quite spectacular. So glad you enjoyed the pasta making evening and managed to explore so many of the beautiful towns. We look forward to welcoming you back.

A wonderful Villa in a beautiful rural location

  • 5 of 5

We were an extended family group of 3 generations. So that we could all relax a top priority was to have a safe place for young children - the fenced off lockable swimming pool area, with its non slip pool surround and new solar lighting more than met our expectations.

We also loved the abundant space around the villa with its cherry and walnut trees with places for the children to safely explore. The views of the countryside are quite outstanding especially when viewed from the roof terrace. The villa itself is comfortable, appropriately furnished, and the beds and quality sheets were most appreciated. The villa was very clean and well maintained, the kitchens are well equipped and the outside tables and chairs are perfect for family meals together. We made good use of the well equipped games room with bikes, toys and especially table tennis.

The agent Alison was very helpful and dealt with any queries very efficiently and the owner Jenny made every effort to make our holiday a success. We would highly recommend this villa for a great family holiday.

Amazing Family Holiday Villa!

  • 5 of 5

I have recently taken my extended family (Mrs, two kids 1yrs and 4yrs, parents and In laws - all in mid 60's), to this amazing Villa near Alberobello for a two week family holiday. It was brilliant! A beautiful property, with two separate living accommodations which suited our needs perfectly. Very well equipped with all the mod cons, but presented in a very traditional style. The roof terrace offers stunning views of the local countryside and the extensive grounds (at least 3 acres) were amazing for exploring and lizard spotting with my 4yr old. Games room provided lots of fun with ping pong and darts competitions. Used the mountain bikes a lot to as the local are is beautiful and easy to navigate on bikes.

The pool area is stunning and gated (great for little kids). It was a little cold, but we still swam everyday.

The owner, Jenny, was incredibly helpful and informative in the period of time leading up to the holiday and her property manager in Alberobello, Alison, was lovely to. Very welcoming and again very helpful.

Local people, restaurants and bars are all excellent. Local supermarket was excellent, had a brilliant deli counter with lots of local cheese, ham, salami, bread and a very good butchers counter

I can highly recommend this villa - Trulli Sulla Collina, and the area and look forward to returning there next year for another great family holiday.

The property is situated within 3 acres of olive and almond grove in a hill top position in rural countryside but within 5 minutes of Alberobello. The approach to the property is down very pretty, quiet stone walled lanes, ideal for walking and cycling. It's position offers some of the most fantastic views across the Val D'Itria and being in this position the property benefits from a cooling breeze during the hot summer months. The nearest town Alberobello which is a UNESCO heritage site and a unique and fascinating place to explore with its' thousands of trulli. Restaurants and coffee bars are plentiful, good quality and very friendly, being full of character, many being trulli buildings. There are many small shops to explore - ranging from good quality clothes shops through to traditional bakers, butchers etc There are large and well stocked supermarkets on the outskirts of the main historic centre and about 5 minutes from the property. These stock branded goods as well as having excellent delicatessen counters for wonderfully fresh Parma ham, olives, sun dried. Tomatoes, cheeses etc etc

The Thursday market in Alberobello is a must, the array of fresh fruit and vegetables is fantastic and the opportunity to soak up the atmosphere of how the locals live is a real cultural experience.

We also offer many activities and leisure past times to make your holiday even more enjoyable from cookery classes, to a Puglian Chef preparing a meal for you, to car and bike hire, please see link below
