Excellent place for a chillout family holiday
As a place for a chill-out family holiday this really worked for us. Three generations from 7 to 70.
First the good things:
Met at airport by owner who helped this luggage and guided us to accommodation.
Late flight arrival meant we only made accommodation at 9.30pm. Lasagne in oven and fridge stocked with bread, milk and basics for following morning - all part of the service. Well appointed kitchen with basic condiments for cooking
Fantastic swimming pool, cleaned every day.
Great Pizza night with grandchildren making their own Pizza's in outdoor wood fired Pizza oven, then eating them fresh out, at the bar, with chilled beer and wine
Outdoor eating facilities
Package of directions to local supermarkets, beaches and restaurants.
Books, DVD's and large, easy to work TV
Now the bad things.
Great find and great people.
The property was outstanding, it was everything we hoped for as a family , Its rather secluded which we as family loved .The accommodation was very clean, and as we expected having viewed on the website the rooms are large and welcoming . The pool is the big bonus with Trullo Santana with spent most days in and around the pool , with eveving barbecue's and drinks at our own bar. The owners live the other side of the pool but at no point during our holiday did we feel they are intruding or visible, but it was great if we had a problem, they couldnt' have been more helpful. They are fun to spend time with and full of local knowledge. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a get away of the beaten track but near to so many attractions and beaches.
Chill out heaven
Trullo Santana is a fantastic oasis where you can really chill out. Nothing is too much trouble for the lovely hosts Ant and Sarah and indeed Ant met us at the airport hire car office to lead us back to the trullo - a nice touch after our flight from Heathrow. Upon arrival, we found that Sarah had provided us not only shopping for breakfast the following morning, but she had also prepared a huge lasagna for us all with salad, garlic bread, wine, beers and soft drinks - and all this was included in the price - brilliant!
It is ideally located for exploring the Puglian sights. Within a comfortable drive of Ostuni, Alborebello (with all of its quaint trulli) and the wonderful Lecce, there is plenty for everyone. The Adriatic coast is about a 20 minute drive and the Ionian coast is under 40 minutes and both offer great beaches, as well as providing wonderful places to have excellent sea-food or pasta lunches.
We spent a lot of our time back at the trullo sunbathing by the huge pool and it was 30 degrees when we were there, so the pool was a welcome place to cool off.
I would thoroughly recommend having a pizza night or 2 hosted by Sarah & Ant. Sarah will then provide all the necessities (base, toppings etc) and guidance to help you make your own pizzas before Ant cooks them to perfection in his large pizza oven. A brilliant night.
There is also a bar area and we had many great nights with and without our hosts - they allowed us to take what we wanted and simply to write down what we had consumed and this proved to be really good value.
If you have teenage children who are looking for night life, I would say that this is not necessarily the place for you - it is as far from Magaluf as you can get!
If you want a place to chill out whilst experiencing the best of southern Italy in terms of places of interest, great food, a huge choice of beaches, a great pool and sunbathing area, a lovely outside eating area and all this whilst staying in a traditional trullo with all the mod cons, then Trullo Santana could not be bettered.
Ant and Sarah are considerate hosts - they live in another trullo on the far side of the massive grounds and you would hardly know that they were there other than when they are helping you to cook great pizzas!
I could not recommend this place any higher and indeed we have been there twice before - and each time it has been of the highest quality - brilliant!
Beautiful Trulli, Large Pool, Pizza Nights Yum
We had such a wonderful holiday at Trullo Santana.
After the short flight to Brindisi from Gatwick, we were met by the ever so charming Ant at our hire car collection point. He greated us with his huge smile and very kindly lead us back to the property.
The Trulli is even more beautiful than the pictures show. Respectfully, but beautifully restored, and coverted into a fairytale holiday home.
As soon as we arrived we were given a guided tour, a welcome drink (or 3) and nibbles at the bar. A lovely touch I thought. We also had a delicious lasagne freshly prepared by the great chef Sarah, with a large salad, garlic bread, wine, soft drinks etc. They supply you with a good selection of food and necessaties so you don't need to rush out when you arrive. We even had cereal, milk, bread, melon and eggs for breakfast the following morning, all included in the cost of the property. Sarah even offered to do a shop for us before we arrived should we have wished.
The private pool is huge and surrounded by lush planting. We had so much fun in there and it was discretely cleaned early every morning before we awoke. We Loved it!
We had our own private bar - Ants Nest, which you can use as and when you please at really low prices. Oh, and Ant and Sarah are happy to host a pizza night or two for you. We had two and I cannot recommend it enough. They prepare everything and you get to have a go at making your own pizza should you wish. The kids (and the big kids) loved it. We had freshly baked garlic bread, a large pizza each, and then chocolate covered pizza for pudding, truly delicious and a great selection of toppings. Not to be missed in my opinion and very good value for money.
We hired a car with SatNav and visited Ostuni (twice). It was beautiful and worth a visit. We also visited Alborobello, stunning.
We only had a week and I wish we had booked longer. The roads a very clear so we enjoyed driving around. The supermarket is 5 mins away, and there is a big shopping centre 15-20 mins away also.
Sarah and Ant live in another Trulli on the opposite side of the plot, out of sight. They are so repectful of your privacy and there for you should you need anything. I thought they were lovely and really enjoyed our pizza nights with them.
They also have the most wonderful, soppy dog Harley. Never in my life have i met such a loving, gentle dog. He made our holiday extra special, and I wish I could have taking him home with us. Adorble!
Really beautiful, peaceful villa
We had a really lovely time for ten days at Trullo Santana. We are a family of 5 with 3 kids aged 16, 14 and 10. We were looking for some down time as a family and to enjoy ourselves away from the hussle and bussle. It was a great success. WIFi is available but only really beside the outdoor bar which is perfect for on and off use. The pool is really stunning and always clean. We used the bar b que a few times for lunch which was really handy and v nice! Great meat and veg is available in the supermarket Auchan. The owners Sarah and Ant were really helpful to us, Ant even drove us to our car hire in Brindisi and waited so we could follow him home....really thoughtful. We were quite noisy in the pool sometimes playing games etc but they never seemed to mind. The aircon was perfect and stopped us over heating when necessary. The DVD collection was fabulous and the kids loved them when they needed a break. We ate most nights in San Michele salantino which is very charming with very few tourists (great value also)....... we went to the beach at St Pietro in Bevagnan (really stunning and calm. We paid for the private sunbeds which really made it and worth it, kids adored it, water amazing) and also Ostuni Mare (great waves, we had great fun in the sea). We could have done with a few more restaurant recommendations and tips on what time to go there, the first few nights we were a little confused.....Overall we had a really lovely time, all the kids really enjoyed it which meant M & D did too!! Really happy to recommend Trullo Santana to anyone.
Very Happy Memories
Three generations of one family aged from 9years to 90years had the most wonderful two weeks staying here. The Trullo itself is so beautiful and romantic. The pool is just stunning and so much fun. The gardens, bar, bbq and pizza oven just a joy. All completely private set amongst acres of Olive trees. Perfect outside eating area, we would all sit to eat (and drink) together long into the evening. No light pollution to mask the amazing night sky's. Shooting stars to make wishes on. Our wish is to return to Satana.
Hosts Sarah and Ant are so kind and discrete. Above all this the most wonderful thing was sharing our holiday with HARLEY. He is the most wonderful resident dog. He enriched our stay and we miss him dreadfully. Xxxx
