About Giorgio Spalluto

p till the 1960s Trulli il Castagno was occupied by Beatrices grandparents who ran a small farm engaged in the keeping of livestock as well as wine production on adjacent land.

The farm also had a social function due to the large aia or threshing yard which allowed all the locally produced grain and fruit to be processed while also hosting all the local dances and parties. This small corner of Puglia has been transformed into a tranquil oasis for our guests, allowing them to enjoy the peace and quiet of the surrounding area. The trulli themselves have been renovated with the assistance of expert artisans who are specialised in this kind of restoration aided by the efforts of the Spalluto family themselves, especially Pietro Spalluto who is himself a skilled craftsman.

The initial work began at Christmas in 2007 and thanks to the concerted efforts of the whole family it has been a praiseworthy success story allowing us to provide our guests with authentic accomodation and truly Puglian hospitality.

Giorgio Spalluto purchased this chateau / country house in 1800

A beautiful building in a lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

The building is beautiful and looks stunning.There are some facilities on site, but you will be travelling around. Pay for heating if you are out of season, as, owing to the buildings nature, it will feel damp. The owners family are fantastic and can not do enough to help. The area directly adjacent to the building is as described, rural and makes for excellent photographs. Travelling around you will quickly acclimatise to the area. Monopoly is a lovely walled community, and there are many beautiful beaches NORTH of Monopoly. You will not find many malls, so there will be no retail therapy. Go to Bari town centre for shopping. Relax and do like the Italians. Eat drink and do little else.

Endroit hors du temps

  • 5 of 5

Cette propriété est magnifique, surplombant une légère vallée qui offre une vue dégagée laissant le temps à la réflexion et à la contemplation.

Les bâtiments superbement restaurés offrent tout le confort nécessaire, terrasse ombragée, pièces fraîches la nuit, piscine magnifique, tout est conçu pour s'y sentir détendu et à l'aise, l'accueil y est chaleureux.

L'idée de l'arboretum est superbe, pouvoir au hasard d'une promenade dans les jardins apprendre à reconnaître arbres, légumes et plantes aromatiques est une démarche vraiment très sympathique.

Pour les gourmands et les gourmets, ne surtout pas rater le repas en groupe avec les autres locataires, la cuisine est faite traditionnellement par la propriétaire et sa cousine, accompagnée du vin de leur vignoble, le dîner est animé par les deux fils, c'est une soirée géniale.

En bref je conseille à tous d'y séjourner plusieurs jours, même en villégiature, le trulli de Castagno s'y prête parfaitement.

Philippe Demulier et Marie Christine Chevret.
