Overview

Martina Franca Villa Rental Photos and Description

Situated just 3km from the chic town of Martina Franca

Welcome to the real Italy...

This 18th century traditional farmhouse has beautifully renovated preserving all the original features and incredible workmanship from years before.

The exposed stonework and unique coned roofs makes staying in this trullo a very special experience.

Situated just a few kilometres from the chic town of Martina Franca (city of festivals) you can enjoy strolling around the historical centre, coffee in one of the lovely cafes or enjoy dining in one of the excellent restaurants where fresh local produce is served at very reasonable prices.

In the summer months the town is busy with Italians who come to enjoy one of the many festivals which are held in the town.

Street entertainment, music and chic cafes keep the town busy until the early hours of the morning where you can enjoy real Italian life.

Just 3km drive into the pretty countryside of Martina Franca Trullo Susanna is situated.

The trullo is set privately however it is not isolated and is situated on a private road so you will not be disturbed by passing traffic.

Private electric gates lead you into the well maintained garden where there is a vegetable garden, fruit trees and of course the famous olive trees which are known to this region.

The outside area has been designed for outside living in the summer months.

Comfortable double sunbeds are around the pool area where you can relax after cooling down in the private pool and the tiled stone gazebo provides shade from the summer sun.

The pool is well maintained by Francesco who comes to clean it early in the morning to ensure he does not disturb you.

Evenings can be spent cooking wonderful fresh local produce on the barbecue, sampling the world famous local wine and relaxing under the stars.

Entering the trullo the exposed stonework, cones and arches are quite breathtaking. The spacious living/dining area has been tastefully decorated in keeping with the style of trullo and the log burning open fire creates a cosy atmosphere in the cooler months.

A new stone built kitchen was finished in 2012 and is fully equipped if you prefer to cook at the trullo.

There is a full size dishwasher, coffee machine with coffee pods and large fridge freezer.

The double bedroom is situated in the original cones of the trullo and is a very special place to sleep. There is ample hanging and drawer space and the pretty mosquito net, candles and soft lighting creates a romantic atmosphere.

There is a further spacious twin room which has been designed by a local artist Anna Le Neve.

The living room has a bed sofa should you be a party of 5 or 6 people.

Full wi-fi is available here in all the rooms for the trullo and the outside patio area.

Why Susan Gardner chose Tarent

I viewed many properties in the area however when I saw Trullo Susanna I immediately knew I would love to purchase it. This property ticked all the boxes for me, off the main country road, other houses close enough so you do not feel isolated however you still have privacy as the garden and pool are not overlooked.

The town of Martina Franca is simply beautiful with the baroque architecture, cafes, Italian culture and endless festivals in the summer months.

In the trullo I love all the exposed stonework and how fresh it feels in the summer months.

I have many happy memories of holidays at Trullo Susanna with friends and family and now it is a rental property that enjoyment can be passed onto many more people, please read the reviews and you can see what people thoughts are.

A great week in Trullo Susanna

  • 5 of 5

The Trullo was in a good central location for our travels in Pulgia; although a short drive out of town which we soon got used to. Everything we needed was provided. Susan was very helpful and responsive.

Great vacation in a wonderful trullo

  • 5 of 5

The trullo is well equiped and decorated with art. The location is calm and allows to rest. Situated close to Marina Franca, a wonderful baroc city, we appreciated the different visit which you can do starting from the rtullo: Locorotondo, Alberobello, Matera, Lecce, Castel del Monte and Bari, to provide the most importnat place we saw. (We are able to provide the differnt one-day round trip we did if you ask Susan). Susan was lovely ith us and porvide some directions which we appreciated. Great vacation! Wonderful place!

Magnifique semaine

  • 5 of 5

Quelle magnifique semaine dans le superbe trullo de Susan.

Cette maisonnette est belle, atypique, confortable et décorée avec beaucoup de goût. La terrasse et la piscine sont un vrai plus.

Ssan est une merveilleuse maitresse de maison. Elle est pleine de gentilles attentions pour ses invités, et de bons conseils pour visiter la région.

Je recommande vivement cette adresse pour des vacances au calme et dans une belle nature.

Trulli Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a delightful week at Trullo Susanna. All the rustic charm and mod cons you could want. The listed description of the property was completly accurate and looked even more lovely in real life. The property was well looked after and very clean. A great place to base yourself to explore the delights of Puglia. We will recommend Trullo Susanna and Puglia to our friends and family. Susan (the property owner) was so helpful and it was reassuring to know we could text her if we needed advice.

Exploring this beautiful area:

There is so much to do and see in this unspoilt part of Italy.

The trullo is just 3km from the beautiful, chic, baroque town of Martina Franca.

In the summer months the town is full of activity.

The city is known as the 'citta del festival', the city of festivals.

The most famous being the musical festival, which attracts people from worldwide in the last 2 weeks of July.

http://www.festivaldellavalleditria.it/

Martina Franca has many excellent restaurants, cafes and for the keen shopper hours can be lost weaving your way through the many designer boutiques.

Surrounded by pretty hilltop town with enchanting historic centres and beautiful piazzas I would recommend you visit: Cisternino, Locorotondo, Ostuni (The White City), Monopoli, Pulignano al mare, Conversano.

Matera, Lecce and Gallipoli are a little further away but undoubtedly worth the drive.

Miles of clean,white,award winning, sandy beaches can be found on the Ionian coastline, just 30 minutes from the trullo.

Dining out here is a pleasure. Fresh seafood, locally grown fruit and vegetables and tender meat dishes all at a very reasonable price.

Local Puglian wine is now known all over the world, you can have the pleasure of sampling this at local prices.

If you wish to visit the wine museum in Alberobello and sample the wines I can organise this for.

You could also spend a morning seeing the famous olive oil of Puglian being made or the wide range of local cheeses.
