A wonderful place all year round which offers lots of things to do. Ideal for two families or a group of friends. The two houses are detached and completely self-sufficient, yet within close reach of one another. Large garden with lawn and 10 x 10 mt-pool with generous surrounding area and dining table. We are confident we can recommend this property to anyone, including families with small children (our own kids grew up here). The property is a tranquil, safe and child-friendly environment, the pool is protected by a fence. The garden has a great variety of fruit and olive trees, some hundreds of years old. There are many attractions in the area: Lots of little towns with wonderful historical centres, Unesco heritage sites like Alberobello (just 15 minutes by car) and Matera, Lecce with its amazing baroque, lots of beaches on both coasts, countless typical restaurants for all budgets...Upon arrival you will find your complimentary Welcome Kit with useful information about the area, such as restaurants, places to see, things to do etc.

About Ina Fumarola
My husband, Alessandro, and I have been living in this wonderful area for several years now. Alessandro was born and raised in Martina Franca while I'm originally from Munich (Germany). The Trullo and land have been in Alessandro's family for seven generations (it was build by an ancestor). We have restored it very carefully, focusing on keeping its original features, such as the exposed stone arches and the century-old limestone on the floor. At the same time, we have built a new house on the land which we wanted to blend in with the local architecture without trying to look ancient. We have spent a lot of time exploring this enchanting region and love to share our findings and experience with people who come and visit us. My husband Sandro and I are active members of the dog and cat rescue association ANGELI DEI RANDAGI, a local non-profit organization, entirely run and funded by volunteers, all highly dedicated to saving as many stray animals as possible while improving their living conditions. We regularly feed the strays, while rescuing and fostering as many puppies as we possibly can. All adoptions are managed very carefully, with a thorough check of the adopters before and especially after the dog or cat has moved in with their new owners. We also organize campaigns to raise awareness and fight abuse and abandonment. The association mostly relies on donations while all volunteers work without any kind of monetary compensation.

Beautiful Villa; extremely well presented, clean and owners were more than helpful
This is a perfect place for two families. The grounds are beautifully kept with plenty to keep children of all ages busy. The properties themselves are clean and comfortable and very tastefully and sensitively decorated. The facilities are second to none and Ina was a fantastic host, available day and night for all kinds of questions and requests. The area is picturesque and very charming. Overall I would certainly recommend this place to anyone and everyone!
Stylish and comfortable home away with great hosts
We felt immediately at home in the lovely trullo and the villa. All recommendations made by the hosts were great and we enjoyed every moment of our stay. The property is with an excellent location to combine relaxing days with traveling and visiting the beautiful small towns Puglia. Ina and Sandro, thanks for being there with your great recommendations and prompt support whenever we needed it. Hope to have a chance to stay there again.
Fabulous place to stay en famille
We had a fabulous week staying here as two families with small children. Both properties are beautifully designed but also robust for small people. A great space to run around in the garden and the swings and slide a real bonus. Ina and Sandro couldn't have been more helpful in terms of directions, weather, activities, places to eat and coming over straight away when we briefly lost power during an electrical storm and were flexible with arrival and departure times. We could not have had a better stay in late October and would love to return during a different season.
We travelled as 2 families and the trullo and lamia were perfectly set-up to cater for us all. Everything was really well maintained and functional. The beds were confortable and the whole property was spotless. We loved the chill out lounge room in the lamia, which is where we would all start and finish our days. The master bathroom in the lamia was fabulous. I wish I could have one that beautiful at home. The pool was huge and the gardens well kept. We used both the outdoor eating areas on several occasions during our stay. Ina and Sandro could not have been more helpful. It was like having a consierge service on tap. Nothing was too much bother. They booked us restaurants and masseurs and gave us advice about doctors and hospitals when I got an ear infection. The surrounding countryside is very pretty, but you are only 30 minutes away from the coast. We have stayed in Puglia several times and this has been my favourite property. We can't wait to go back!
what a wonderful holiday we all had
What a wonderful holiday we all had - our party consisted of 4 couples and 3 children and the size, layout and facilities were just perfect - light and airy and so much space - the Trulli was magical.
The attention to detail was superb (many toys for the children) and our hosts Ina and Sandro could not have been more supportive and helpful.
All in all a perfect place for my husbands 70th birthday celebration and we cannot wait to return.
Most wonderful time
We had such a great time in this most wonderful location!!!! Both houses are beautifully furnished and well equipped and the garden has lots of little corners where one loves to sit down, relax and enjoy the peacefulness of the area. We were ten altogether and everybody - no matter what age - loved the site. Sandro and Ina were extremley helpful with all the questions we had concerning places to see, going out for dinner, horsebackriding a.s.o. They were always available and that made us feel very much cared for. The area is great and has many little towns nearby to discover. It was our first time in Puglia and we will come back for sure and then hopefully stay again with Ina and Sandro. Thank you so much! Nini
Coast/Beach: The nearest beach, on the Adriatic coast, is about 30 minutes by car. At about 1 hour’s drive is the Ionian coast which we definitely recommend you explore. Puglia is long and narrow, with the sea on almost all sides, so there are hundreds of miles of coastline, with countless places of all kinds: Fully equipped beach clubs for all budgets, free beaches with high dunes and great scenery and anything in between. We will be happy to supply you with directions to what we think are the best places. Travel: Nearest airports are Bari and Brindisi, both at about 1 hour's drive. It is essential to have a car in this area as public transport is scarce to use an euphemism. Cars can be easily rented at the airports. It is very important to book your car in advance. In case you arrive late or want to avoid the hassle of food shopping on your first day, we can do this for you, as well as organising catering for your first evening's dinner. Please write to us for more details. Distances: Nearby towns: Martina Franca, famous for its ancient baroque centre and the opera festival in summer, is just 4 km away. Even nearer is Locorotondo which holds the official title “uno dei borghi piu belli d’italia” (“one of Italy’s most beautiful villages”). Famous Alberobello, a Unesco World Heritage Site, can be reached in about 15 minutes by car. Also nearby are Cisternino and Ostuni, two very pretty and lively towns. Lecce, the capital of baroque architecture is about one hour's drive away. Further Details: The area offers many attractions, with loads of interesting festivals, countless wonderful towns and places to visit and explore. It is also a great area when you are on vacation with children. We can offer some experience on this topic as our twin boys grew up here. There are great restaurants for all budgets and the most delicious local produce in case you prefer to cook. We will be happy to supply you with information and directions.
