'Trullo della Luna', charming typical farmhouse with swimming pool

Bedrooms 2
Property type farmhouse
Minimum Stay 3 - 14 nights


About the property

Located in its own olive grove, few kilometers from the sea (Torre Guaceto)

'Trullo della Luna' is a farmhouse, the typical building house you can find in Valle d'Itria: it’s a classic four-cone rural trullo. Only the local peasants once used this type of building, now its shapes are appreciated by the entire world and are representative of this Italian region and its ancient culture. This area of Apulia is becoming a new-Chianti, a place where the nature fuses its beauty into the controlled, quiet human environment. I bought this trullo when it was completely abandoned. As I am an architect, I saw it as if its dry-stone blocks were the ruins of an ancient temple, and I have restored it with a great enthusiasm. My aim is to rent it for holiday stays and use it for my familiar purposes. Please visit our web site linked below for further information; it is worth taking a visit (if there is not the link in this page, drop a line and we will send it by email).

I lend my car to our guests!: It is absolutely a necessity to have a car for staying in Trullo della Luna. It is a detached villa in a rural area and a car is needed for any simple movement. If you desire to have our Fiat Panda, just confirm you want it! I don't ask any fee for this. I leave it parked near the Brindisi airport so anyone coming by plane in half a hour can be on the edge of my swimming pool sipping a drink! In the confidential area of my web site there are all the instructions for finding it and use it. In the priviledged section of my private web site, dedicated to my guests, you will find accurate details about the route from Brindisi to the trullo and the shortcut to the sea and to the main attractions. The car is a Fiat Panda. The insurance covers all risks (car driver included). At the end of the stay you'll simply leave it in the same place. I will ask you to fill up again with gasoline! The offer is valid only for parties up to 3 people. Please don't ask any discount if you don't want the car.


Let me point out the importance of this ancient rural architecture: I delighted to visit and study all the ancient ways of doing the trulli (trulli is the plural of trullo). I verified how all small constructive solutions are a concentration of popular wisdom.

The original cones are made without the use of any plaster and the craftsman who was committed to do this type of activity was always a specialised workman.

Nowadays there are only few specialists for doing all these details. I have funded the restoration of Trullo della Luna having clearly the aim to preserve all these aspects.


Please visit my PRIVATE WEB SITE!: you will find further details about Trullo della Luna, its location, the various activities that are possible during a holiday in the area. You will find also further information about the rental system, already experienced in my other properties I am currently renting through the web.

If you can't see the web link in this advertisement, please drop a line by email and we will send it. Alternatively you can google ''. The link in the circuit is at the bottom of the page, before reviews.

See in Venice 'Nati's House' (#8044), in Florence 'Magenta apartment' and 'Renzo's Apartment' ( # 13546), in Bologna 'Ca' di Vale' (#885480).

A wide area of the web site is a log-on area reserved only to the confirmed guests with plenty of precious details and tips for your holiday. It would be convenient for you planning your holiday accommodation with me, you may save time and money and I can help you with a personal and friendly approach.

Trullo della Luna

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant holiday at the Trullo della Luna. It is a perfect getaway and situated in Puglia, a very beautiful part of Italy . We found the trullo without any problems at all - fantastic directions! A car is a necessity not only because the trullo is in a peaceful, quiet location, but also because there is so much to see. It has been renovated wonderfully, it was a pleasure to stay in. I would happily recommend this property to friends.

A beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from a fantastic two weeks at Trullo della Luna. It is probably the best Italian property we have stayed in. The trullo has been beautifully restored and although compact, was quite large enough for our party of five. We combined a mixture of sight seeing and making the most of the beautiful pool and its surrounding area. We would definitely recommend it.

A Trulli Lovely Break

  • 5 of 5

We (family of 5, children 7 months, 4 & 7 years old) have just returned from a two week stay at the Trullo.

We had a fantastic time at the property and in the region.

The property itself is clean and well-maintained and is an authentic Trullo, so quirky and cosy on the inside, but equipped with mod-cons such as air-con in the sleeping areas. The outside of the Trullo is a good, large space, with various areas for sunbathing and of course the pool to cool down in. We made good use of the Barbecue.

In terms of the location, the Trullo is almost central in the region and well placed for exploring the sights. We managed to get to all corners of Puglia, plus a hop over to Basilicata to see Matera and generally the sights are 45mins to an hours drive (Alberobello, Locorotondo, Martina Franca, Ostuni, Lecce etc.). The local roads can take some getting used to, but if you head right out of the property towards Latiano you're on the Autostrade before too long and make good progress on the main roads. A good GPS would be worth the investment if planning lots of exploring, it saved us any head-scratching. San Michele Salentino, the nearest town, has a charming centro that is worth the short trip for lunch and a wander.

We also spent many lazy, sunny hours, simply relaxing by the pool and enjoying being cut-off from the news back in the 'real-world'. The Trullo is a great choice for a relaxing break.

Paolo, the owner is very easy to deal with and the property managers down in Puglia, Mrs Costanza and David her (English) husband are also very amenable and quick to respond when needed.

All in all, we had a lovely stay.

Way Better than Expected

  • 4 of 5

This place was great. We really enjoyed trullo life. We went out on various local excursions but the best part of our holiday was the tranquillity of lounging by the pool and exploring the garden. It felt great to be so far away from everyone else. We also enjoyed use of the car, perfect for the situation. Locals seemed really friendly and tolerant of out poor Italian language skills. House was well equipped with lots of handy extras. Would definitely book again

Trullo amazing...

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the "Trullo Della Luna" for 4 nights in September and I cannot recommend this accommodation highly enough. It is just perfect.

Set in the Olive groves, the location is peaceful and only a short drive from the main sights in the area.

We visited lots of beautiful places on our holiday in Italy but nothing compared to driving up the path and returning home to such a magical place.

Trullo della Luna is located in the interlard of Ostuni, south east of the famous Valle d'Itria, the trulli-area (Alberobello, Cisternino, Locorotondo), not far from the Torre Guaceto National Marine Reserve, a park with seven kilometres of uncontaminated sea-coast with plenty of small crystal waters bays and white sand beaches. The environmental protection leaves new innovative ways of enjoying and being part of the nature: excursions, snorkeling, sailing, wind-surfing etc. Many daily trips are also possible: Alberobello, Fasano, Matera, Ostuni, Oria, Mesagne... all beautiful tourist goals. Our trullo is completely immersed in a beautiful olive grove. When we bought it, we though it is the best place to have relaxing moments. Our private exclusive swimming pool, just aside of the trullo, will help you sampling the silences and the beauty of this place.

Perfect for those who love beauty of landscapes, cultural visits, local traditions, sunbathing at the seashore and sports like snorkeling, biking, etc.
