About Alison

We first came to Alberobello in 2005 and fell in love with it. I had spent time in the North of Italy, which I love very much, but the South is just so different. We immediately bought a small apartment and then spent the next two years coming here for weekends and holidays as much as we could. One year we visited 9 times!

Alison purchased this villa in 2007

Why Alison chose Tarent

We wanted something close to the wonderful town of Alberobello, being such a tourist town it is never quiet and there is always something going on and restaurants open whatever time of year you visit.

What makes this villa unique

Our trullo is one of the few large trulli that have all the bedrooms off of the main living area; you don’t need to go outside to get to the main part of the house. We have a very large games room which is excellent when too hot to go outside, or some extra space for children to play in. The heated pool is a wonderful addition. The pizza oven makes for a great evenings entertainment as well as good pizzas. As we live locally we are always on hand for any information or help that you may need. We can also arrange a private chef, or a local lady to come to the house and prepare you a traditional meal, where you make the pasta!

Guestbook comments from the owner

'The photographs didn't do the trullo justice, the inside is stunning and far bigger than we expected' - Mr & Mrs McKinney, Oxfordshire. 'The location is handy for visiting all the attractions in the area, and not far from the beach' - Mr & Mrs Honor, Northamptonshire.

'We had such a fantastic holiday - we will definitely go again next year' - Mr& Mrs Holmes, Cambridgeshire

Perfect property for a group holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed as a group of 7 30somethings and 2 under 2's for one week in June. The trullo was perfect and wonderfully equipped, particularly for the babies.

On arrival we were met by Chris and Alison, who were incredibly welcoming, explained everything we needed to know and were easily contactable throughout our stay.

We booked a few of the food in the trullo evenings which were amazing. Pizza night ended up lasting for 2 nights as Giuseppe brought so many freshly made dough balls we had to save some for the next day and pasta making night with Palma and 3 generations of her family was a wonderful experience (not to mention filling!)

As beautiful as the trullo is, it's the outside space that truly makes this place. The pool was spotless, the courtyard roomy and perfectly shaded. The gardens provided hours of entertainment with a large trampoline, children's play centre and pétanque pitch.

The games room was also well utilised, by day, by the children, where it was a welcome relief from the midday sun with more toys than they knew what to do with and in the evening, by the adults with pool, table tennis, fuseball and darts tournaments!

We would love to return and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone wanting a touch of luxury on a visit to the region.

Fantastically well equipped Trullo!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fab time at Alison and Chris's beautiful Trullo! It was very comfortable and had every amenity you could with for - from amazing pool, garden and games room to a fully equipped kitchen and ensuite bathrooms. The location was great with many stunningly beautiful villages and towns around and Alison and Chris on hand for any questions and recommendations.

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

The house was amazing with excellent facilities.

Alison and Chris were most helpful - supplying us with shopping on our late arrival and arranging a pizza evening at the house with Guiseppe which was amazing.

The local town of Alberobello is well worth a visit to see the traditional trulli buildings.

The games room was an added bonus even for the grown ups!

A beautiful Trullo

  • 5 of 5

An ideal home for a wonderful family holiday. The facilities were amazing, not only for the children, but for us all. Alison and Chris are perfect hosts and couldn't have been more helpful. I would highly recommend this trullo to any family looking for high standard accommodation combined with perfect privacy.

Absolute luxury

  • 5 of 5

Spacious inside and out, lots of areas to sit whatever the requirement. Very well equipped with everything you could ask for, all ages catered for. Secure, private and quiet. The swimming pool is large and warm surrounded by a lovely garden.

Alison and Chris were extremely helpful and even arranged for a neighbour to cook us a pasta meal, which was superb. Highly recommend.

We drove out to Alberobello, to the market in Martina Franca and Monopoli on the coast, all worth a visit.

We would definitely recommend this accommodation. Ideal for large groups.

We are happy to arrange a Pasta Making Evening. One of our neighbours is only too delighted to come to the Trullo and make fresh pasta with you and then prepare an evening meal. Everything that she makes has either been home grown or home made.

We can arrange for a private pizza making evening at the trullo where you can have a go at making them and you get to eat them, it's a really great evening.

Or a Private Chef can come to the Trullo to prepare and cook a meal for you.

Beautician available and private swimming lessons from a qualified instructor.


1km to the local village shop, 1km to the nearest restaurant, just 5km to Alberobello and 3km to Locorotondo with many restaurants, open all year round.
