We ended up here by luck, chance, destiny, fate !! We love the area because it is private, quiet, peaceful, safe, tranquil, and the neighbours are good. Our restoration is unique.

Fantastic villa, amazing pool and a wonderful holiday
We had a great holiday. Although the villa sleeps 9, there were 6 of us and I would say that was probably enough for the inside space. There is a double sofa bed in the living area so if you all know each other and don't mind being 'all in together' then more people would be fine, if a little 'cosy'. We spent most of the day outside where there is plenty of space for sitting in the sun, splooshing in the wonderful, huge pool, and lounging in the shade. There are plenty of shaded areas, a large table under the massive Olive tree, a hanging chair and also a hammock in the shade. The pool was a highlight, the best we have had staying anywhere to date. Marina, the caretaker, was FANTASTIC. Nothing was too much trouble and we stayed in touch via Whatsapp including some help with translating labels on products via photo and locating things we needed. She speaks fluent English and was a total gem. The villa stayed cool in the day when we had a breeze (this took the edge of heat and made things very bearable outside), which was great for the first week but in the 2nd the breeze vanished as the temperatures rose and we needed the air conditioning on a bit more especially in the evening. We only went over our electricity quota due to not cottoning on that the water heater was an immersion (basically a large kettle) and we left it on for 2 days straight!!! We had sunshine from dawn to dusk every day for two weeks and temps were 30+ every day. The pool averaged 29-30 deg too. Locally you can get takeaway Pizza for 4-6 euros - a bargain. We didn't eat out much but did visit Ostuni which was a lovely place to go to. There were no 'bugs' at all (we have teenagers who panic!) but mosquitoes outside at night so long trousers, spray and coils are needed. If you keep the doors shut then there are none at night inside. All round brilliant. 10/10
Beautiful villa in lovely peaceful area,yet close enough to charming towns to visit.
We enjoyed a wonderful week at this beautiful trullo, the weather was glorious and so the grandchildren made the most of the pool. Inside stays nice and cool, so you hardly need the air conditioning. A peaceful place you can really relax, but also some lovely places to visit nearby for coffee, lunch or dinner. Marina met us and took us to the villa and was very helpful with local information.
We had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay, the only negative was that the sun beds were rather tired
Beautiful unique Trulli in a rural and quite remote region of Italy
Most beautiful Trulli, set in idyllic grounds with beautiful flowers, plants and trees - the pool was stunning. A really characterful, comfortable and unique property. The area is a bit hit and miss, Ostuni is beautiful and authentic Italy, loved the nature reserve beach but some local towns run down and had very few restaurants overall an amazing holiday and Richard and Marina were both amazing! A car is a must
Wonderful property and location
Good central location. Lovely olive grove setting. Trulli was unique and beautiful with everything we needed. Teenage children loved pool even in October. Great Welcome book very helpful and nice little welcome pack. Marina the manageress & her husband, very accommodating. Thank you.
A beautifully restored Trullo with a fantastic pool and outdoor area.
We had a wonderful stay at Trulli Porta Blu. The Trulli is very comfortable and well equipped and the pool area is delightful, full of character with the massive old olive tree providing welcome shade. The Trulli is in its own private grounds within open countryside, with other dwellings dotted around but not overlooking the property. The nearest town/shops are a few miles away. It is well looked after with a very obliging English speaking manager, Marina. The pool and garden are regularly maintained and the Trulli was immaculately clean. There are so many interesting places to visit in the surrounding area, enough to fill three weeks if you wanted. You will fall in love with this place and the friendly locals.
Puglia is a beautiful region with excellent local restaurants, medieval towns and three UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Matera, Alberobello and Castel del Monte.
Some of the best beaches in Italy are within driving distance with sandy or rocky beaches, caves, grottos and scenic drives. There are multiple Lido beaches with good serviced facilities in the summer including parking, sunloungers, restaurants and toilets.
