Very Nice holiday in a charming Trulli !

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 2 weeks and we had a wonderful experience of the Puglia. The house is less than 45 min driving of the main sites to visit. So we had a high pleasure and took advantage of the house and the area : Alberobello, Martina Franca, Ostuni, Polignano a mare, Bari, Matera (1 hour), Adriatico and Ionico seas... So we could easily go and visit all around.

The house is charming, beautiful, comfortable, well renovated, very clean. Housekeepers come every week to clean and change the house linen.The scenery is amazing (180 ° view) and we were happy to refresh ourselves and have fun in the swimming pool.

As the house is in the countryside, it was also for us a great familial moment, all together.

Massimo and Marika were very attentionned to our needs and they were very helpful to all our araising questions. So we warmly recommand the "puglia paradise" site and the house to everybody interesed in travelling in the Puglia.

A bit of laid back paradise in Puglia!

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I spent 5 days in this trullo and we loved it! The view is beautiful: overlooking the valley. And the surroundings were so picturesque: olive trees, pomegranate trees, almond trees, rosemary bushes, and Podolica cows. There is a small pool, but we were there in October and it was too cool to use. But we LOVED the fireplace and the wood provided -- it was wonderful to have a fire at night! It was so cozy. We loved the renovation of the trullo, and the kitchen was great. The trullo was located far off the road, up through a working farm, which was part of its charm. The people that rented it were so responsive -- they were there to help us in any way possible. Leandro was our "person on the ground" and he could not have been nicer! We were within driving distance of so many places of interest: Matera, Alberobello, Locorotundo, Martina Franca . . . I think I could have happily spent a month or more here!

Location perfetta per una vacanza di relax

  • 5 of 5

Ho trascorso con la mia famiglia una bellissima settimana in questo trullo immerso nel verde della val d'itria. Il trullo è stato recentemente ristrutturato, le stanze sono pulitissime e fornite di ogni comfort. La cucina è completa di lavastoviglie, tostapane, bollitore, forno, anche se noi abbiamo cucinato spesso utilizzando il barbeque in cortile! La piscina è perfetta per chi ha bambini al di sotto dei quattro anni (come noi). Essendo rialzata non poteva essere raggiunta senza l'aiuto di un adulto, questa cosa ci ha garantito serenità per tutto il tempo trascorso a trullo badessa. La gestione della casa è stata impeccabile, discreta ma attentissima alle nostre esigenze. Consigliatissimo!

Wonderful stay in Trullo Badessa

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Trullo Badessa was amazing from start to finish. Massimo was very welcoming when we arrived, he showed us around and made sure to explain everything and help us. They left us a lot of food in the kitchen such as fruits, biscuits, coffee and fresh bread! The view from the place is breathtaking, in fact the photos dont do it justice. You have to be there to really experience it. The garden is filled with olive trees such that every morning we would wake up to the sound of birds. Massimo also left us logs to be used for the fireplace and BBQ which we welcomed gladly as we used them every night. Bedrooms were very comfortable and the sofa bed is very easy to lay out and turns into a doublebed. All in all, I highly recommend this place ! And would go there again if I could in an instant! :)

A gorgeous little home away from home!!!!

  • 5 of 5

A marvellous place to stay!

I loved Trullo Badessa the moment I set my eyes on it. The trullo is expertly converted to extremely highly quality finishing standards.

There's underfloor heating, which is fantastic, the kitchen is FULLY equipped, even has a dishwasher, extremely comfortable and efficient oven, and all the kitchen utensils and cutlery you would need to cook a full meal. The beds are comfortable, the pull out couch extremely easy to use and open/close. All linens/towels were spotless. The wifi and TV services were very fast and dependable.

The outdoor area is absolutely fantastic with a pool, large entertaining area, and a wood fire stove/bbq which we actually used twice during our stay!

Location is great! You would need a private car to get there of course, but the trullo itself is situated in the countryside between Alberobello and Martina Franca, only about ten minutes away! The surrounding area is beautiful, green and very tranquil, perfect views for a relaxing, stress free holiday!

Would I recommend Trullo Badessa? In a heartbeat! Can't wait for my next visit!!

Fabulous Stay at the magical Trullo Badessa!

  • 5 of 5

Arrived at the trullo on Friday morning and was immediately struck by the beautiful scenery and peaceful surroundings. The views from Trullo Badessa are absolutely breathtaking! The house is in itself a testament to the excellent craftsmanship of the region. From the doors and windows to the colorful handmade tiles in the main bedroom, every inch has an impeccable attention to detail. The roaring fireplace and the pizza oven were an excellent surprise making our stay all the more magical.

While this winter stay was perfect, I look forward to visit Trullo Badessa again in the summer months to enjoy the land and the sunshine :)
