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.

Most wonderful time

  • 5 of 5

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

Wonderful relaxing villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the villa and trullo with my sister and her family. The set up worked really well as it meant both families had some privacy whilst being close. It was also perfect for the five children. They had a lot of fun in the huge pool, playing on the lawn and on the swings. The pool area is very safeyly gated which provided peace of mind as three of our five children couldn't swim. Ina had provided loads of toys which also kept them entertained.

Both houses are stylishly decorated and very comfortable. Everything worked well and if ever there was a small problem, Sandro came over very quickly to fix it.

Ina and Sandro were very welcoming and very helpful with their recommendations in terms of beaches, restaurants and towns to visit. We really enjoyed visiting Ostuni, Lecce and Locorotondo as well as beaches on both coasts.

We would definitely recommend the houses to friends, especially if they had children.

Lovely stay, great location.

  • 5 of 5

The property is expansive and well-maintained. We comfortably lodged our group for a week, with plenty of room to spread out and relax. The kitchen in the Trullo is well suited for a sit down dinner of eight. Locorotondo is a gem, and only a few KMs drive (or walk). The historical section of Martina Franca is also charming. We toured Matera - a must see and about an hour and 15 minutes from Villa Fumarola.

Perfect Villa for Our Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10, including two young children, enjoyed a wonderful, relaxing 10 day holiday at Trullo Fumarola. Ina & Sandro were welcoming and attentive hosts, easily contactable and happy to assist us with some business administration which had to be attended to during our stay. The very large pool, fruit orchard & outside dining facilities were favourite features and the location is great - quite secluded, but within easy driving distance of both Martina Franca & Locorotondo. Another highlight for us was a celebration dinner one evening, prepared and served by a local chef recommended by Ina. We found the property to be exactly as described & pictured on the website and the instructions for finding it were exceptionally detailed and clear. Thank you Ina & Sandro.

Ticks all the boxes and much, much, more!

  • 5 of 5

We were three families totalling 11 people with kids ranging from 2 to 9.

We stayed for the last two weeks of July and we could easily have stayed longer.

It was fantastic, beautiful grounds, amazing swimming pool, gorgeous villa and trullo, it had everything and superb value as well.

We had more then enough space and everybody was extremely comfortable, especially the kids.

The location is fantastic as well, close to the beach, the caves, medieval villages and of course Matera.

Finally it's worth mentioning the hosts are always on hand to help with any queries or resolving problems, they understand perfectly well your needs and nothing is too much trouble for them.

I would recommend wholeheartedly!

Lovely Villa! Great location and fantastic pool

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property and a perfect place for a family gathering. Hiring both villa and trullo means lots of room for everyone and a comfortable stay. The pool and grounds are gorgeous and wonderful for small children. Both are beautifully finished and fully equipped. Ina and Sandro were incredibly helpful during our stay and always around if we needed help. I would highly recommend Villa Fumarola!

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.


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.


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.
