The spacious and homely accommodation comprises of a living area and open plan kitchen/dining area, large main bedroom with king size bed and en-suite shower room, twin bedroom (can be made up as a double on request) and main bathroom. To the rear of the property is a verandah providing the perfect place for shaded al-fresco dining, and leading out to the private swimming pool of 10 x 5 metres. Steps lead up to the roof terrace which is perfect for watching the sunset, as well as taking in the 360 degree panoramic countryside views which stretch across to Locorotondo, Cisternino and Martina Franca. The trullo sits in its own grounds of 10,000sqm and is situated at the end of a quiet no-through country lane with olive groves and vineyards. The location provides wonderful open countryside views, and is just 7km from the beautiful Baroque town of Martina Franca and stunning hilltop town of Locorotondo.

Notes:

Outside: The property is located at the end of a quiet country lane, which it shares with working vineyards and olive groves. The trullo sits within its own grounds extending to 10,000 sqm, previously a vineyard, and enclosed by traditional dry stone walling. In the front garden area is a variety of fruit trees including peach, plum, apple, pear, cherry, pomegranate and fig. The verandah at the rear of the property offers shade from the sun and is the perfect place for al-fresco dining, with wooden dining table and chairs. Off the verandah is a paved sun terrace surrounding the private 10 x 5 metre swimming pool. Alongside the verandah steps lead up to the roof terrace which provides beautiful panoramic countryside views, taking in Martina Franca, Locorotondo and Cisternino in the distance. At the bottom of the land is our own small olive grove. Charcoal barbeque. Off road parking for 2-3 vehicles.

perfect escape in rural Puglia

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous and relaxing holiday in this private restored trullo surrounded by the tranquil Puglian countryside. The trullo is very well equipped and we especially liked the spacious bedroom with a door onto the terrace and a short step from the pool. When the temperature rises this is a cool retreat. The pool is lovely, well maintained, and the perfect place to float and enjoy the open views. We also loved the roof terrace, a great place to look at the stars at night.

The trullo is in an excellent location to enjoy the delightful white washed towns of this area, several a short drive away. We especially loved Martina Franca and the delightful experience of the 'passegiata' in the evenings.

Sarah and Nicholas are superb hosts, providing all the information we needed to make our stay a very happy one.

Fabulous house in beautiful Puglia

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Trullo Martinese. It's in a quiet, rural spot, with great views from up on the roof terrace across fields with olive trees and vines. But it's a short drive to the lovely towns of Locorotondo, Martina Franca and Alberobello. We had a week of very hot weather so spent a lot of time in the pool cooling off but then in the evening would pick a town for drinks, dinner, ice cream or sometimes all three!

The house has been thoughtfully set up as a home from home. The character of the original trullo has been preserved whilst adding up-to-date fittings. The decor is simple and bright with some local touches, and everywhere was spotlessly clean. We had everything we needed with a fully equipped kitchen, extra towels for the pool, plenty of toys for the children, a large selection of novels and local guidebooks.

The English owners live nearby and are available if needed for anything, but otherwise left us to enjoy the peace and quiet of the trullo. They were very friendly and helpful and obviously take pride in sharing this lovely place with visitors.

Highly recommended - we would certainly love to come back and stay here again.

Trulli amazing - this Trullo certainly is.

  • 5 of 5

After searching for a place to stay in Southern Italy we were really pleased when we arrived for our week’s holiday at the Trullo.

The surrounding area is beautiful and the Trullo is situated at the end of a lane in the middle of the countryside – a perfect setting and good base for exploring the local area and not far to the coast.

The accommodation provided is great both inside and out - our daughters (aged 9 and 4) loved the swimming pool. The covered terrace at the property is a great place to eat al fresco and the roof terrace provides amazing views and a chance to have a glass of wine and watch the sunset.

The property is exceptionally well maintained and was very clean and tidy when we arrived.

Nicholas, Sarah and Gianliugi provided us with a warm welcome, the house book contained all the information we needed and they were happy to answer any questions we had during our stay.

All in all a fantastic property and we would highly recommend it.

A perfect holiday in a wonderful Trullo in a fascinating area

  • 5 of 5

Our first trip to Puglia - and what a fantastic time we had.

The Trullo offers tranquility, peace and privacy - with views of open countryside and a garden with many fruit trees (and lavender) in bloom. The Trullo itself is wonderful - very clean with a high standard of fittings and appliances (wi-fi works perfectly!) whilst retaining the unique atmosphere of this fabulous historic home.

The pool is just perfect.

A short drive away you'll find several fascinating towns & villages. With few tourists in this area you'll get a real taste of Italy - and Italians! The choice of restaurants and local food is worth the visit alone - so many more that we need to visit

Just a 45 min drive takes you to the Adriatic coast where you'll discover numerous beaches with crystal clear water

The (English - now Italian) owners, Nick & Sarah, live "next door". As the Trullo was once their family home they are especially keen to ensure that guests get the most from their stay - and it shows. Unobtrusive and very helpful we couldn't have asked for more - thank you

Fantastic holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 glorious weeks on holiday here. Nicholas and Sarah made us incredibly welcome (including an arrival hamper) with handy tips for the area, and toys for the kids! The Trullo was very homely, and the pool was perfect for our two small kids. Beautiful countryside and a 15 min drive to Martina Franca, and 20 minutes to Locorontondo. We had a great 2 weeks, thanks Nic and Sarah!

LOVELY TRADITIONAL HOUSE IN PERFECT LOCATION

  • 4 of 5

Lovely house in a rural location with beautiful views. Although it's very private and quiet, it's convenient and close to some of the best and prettiest towns in Puglia. The house was very clean and well maintained with a lovely west facing shaded veranda with uninterrupted views to the spectacular sunsets. Lovely swimming pool. Good towels and sheets and a comfortable bed. Kitchen equipped with all the basics you need to cook at home but it's not far to go if you want to eat out. (We didn't but just visited the local markets to buy delicious fresh food and cooked on the bbq). Nick and Sarah live close by and are on hand if you need any help which was reassuring but they also respect your privacy too. Would definitely recommend this trullo for anyone looking for a quiet relaxing, Puglia experience.
