Beautiful trullo with fantastic views
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Trullo Mandorla. The house is on a hillside facing the Adriatic with great views over olive groves to the sea. Unless you intend to stay in the house most of the time a car is virtually essential. I walked into Fasano a few times and it took me 25-30 minutes.
The photos for the trullo are completely accurate and representative of the house. My favourite place was the outdoor sofa area. This area is well lit at night for aperitivi or relaxing. There are fantastic views to the sea day and night. There was everything we needed in the house. The beds were comfortable.
There is a very good supermarket less than 10 minutes drive from the property and Fasano is even nearer with some good shops and restaurants.
I enjoyed the outdoor eating area too, especially having barbecues and using the well equipped outdoor kitchen.
The pool is on a higher level above the trullo. It is peaceful although the pool is small.
We were a party of 5 adults which I think is the maximum number of adults for this property. The 3rd bedroom has a single bed with another bed stored underneath. If both beds were used and left made up it would leave very little space in the bedroom and there is no hanging space in this room. OK for young children though.
The property managers responded very quickly to queries. They were friendly and helpful. Jo, the owner, also responded quickly to queries. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.
We had an amazing holiday staying at the Trullo Mandorla. The accommodation has been beautifully renovated. A lot of thought and care has been put in to creating an amazing place to stay. The property is very clean and well maintained. I was very impressed by the photos I saw on the web before I went on my holiday but actually being there was something else. It was the first time we had self-catered and we had everything we needed. The outside areas were lovely and every day we spent time using each area which all had fantastic views to enjoy. We didn't spend much time away from the property as we enjoyed our time there so much. The property is well situated and in easy reach of Fasano and Savelletri (which has several restaurants) and a huge supermarket which is very well stocked. I would definitely recommend this property and would love to book again.
A lovely holiday . Would definitely recommend this lovely Trulli
Top trullo - perfect in every respect!
Trullo Mandorla was somewhere we had long wanted to visit and expectations were high. We were not disappointed! Having driven straight from Bari airport we were shown round the luxury trullo by Nick and Sarah who manage the property. They were delightful and very thorough in explaining everything. The outside space is amazing with fantastic views over the Adriatic. A canopied lounging area, a beautifully landscaped garden, a fantastic eating area with kitchen and barbecue and a beautiful pool - what more could you ask for? Well, trees bearing olives, figs and almonds! Inside the trullo is just as stunning as outside - comfortable seating, a well equipped kitchen, three stylish bedrooms (one end suite) and an extremely large bath!! The views from the dining area are stunning.
The trullo is ideally placed for visiting Alberobello, and the Valle d'Itria, Lecce, Monopoli and the fabulous Ostuni.
The pictures of Trullo Mandorla on the website are great - the real thing is even better.
Jo, the owner, was extremely prompt at replying to emails before we arrived and everything was as promised. We would thoroughly recommend this property to anyone wanting a holiday in Puglia.
Ideal location for a restful holiday
Trullo Mandorla is in a tremendous location, on a hillside facing the Adriatic with great views of the sea only a few miles away. The traditional Trullo has been very tastefully and sensibly extended to provide generous accommodation for 6, with the added attractions of a comfortable terrace seating area with a view towards the sea (ideal for morning and evening book reading) , an outside dining area and kitchen set back in the hillside, and a pool on the level above the Trullo with an ample surrounding lounging area and hammock, all in large hillside grounds. The trullo was well serviced by the property managers and was not far from the town of Fasano, which has all necessary amenities, and within easy reach of the beach and many characterful local towns. Beautiful Lecce, the "Florence of the South" is only an hour's drive away, as are the airports at Bari and Brindisi. We had a thoroughly enjoyable week's stay and would very much like to return one day.
Beautiful trullo in a great location
We were wowed the moment we arrived here and used all the lovely outdoor spaces daily – the sofas with the amazing views (perfect for early evening drinks!) and long meals at the outside table, cooked in the outstanding outdoor kitchen. The pool was a great hit with our two kids aged 7 and 9, who were hardly out of it. The gardens are to die for and the hammock provides the ideal spot for reading a good book (when you’re not being dragged in the pool by the kids!). The house itself is simply but beautifully done to a very high standard and it is well-equipped, with comfy beds. There was plenty of room for the four of us and my elderly mother.
Jo, the owner, is lovely and provides useful information about the area – and although it’s hard to drag yourself away from the outdoor kitchen (and it’s so easy to get good food at the local markets and the supermarket just 5/10 mins away), it is worth eating out sometimes as the restaurant food is fabulous (especially the fava bean puree and turnip tops). We enjoyed days out in Alberobello, Ostuni and Lecce and although the beaches were extremely crowded in August, the wild ones are beautiful, with crystal clear waters. The house is in easy access of both Bari and Brindisi airports and it's in a great location for runners - we ran to Fasano every morning. We definitely hope to return.
Trullo Mandorla is ideally located for those who wish to enjoy the nearby sandy beaches and explore the undiscovered countryside of Puglia and the Valle d'Itria. It is situated 5 minutes drive from the sea and a few minutes from the nearby town of Fasano. It is in an excellent location for visiting the nearby towns of Ostuni, Alberobello 'the capital of the trullis', Martina Franca, Locorotondo, and Cisternino. It is less than an hour to the beautiful baroque town of Lecce and within easy access of both Bari and Brindisi airport.
