The trulli is just 5 minutes' drive from Alberobello, the Trulli Capital. It's only a small town, but there are wonderful food shops with beautiful fresh produce.

Further details outdoors:
Trulli Alto shares a pool with one smaller 2 bedroom trulli which is next door. Set in the countryside, there are no other buildings arpart from Trullo Olivo for miles around. As the trullo is on a hillside, there are stunning rural views over vineyards and olive groves. A huge private terrace, own parking, entrance and stone barbecue. Many trulli are very close to neighbours which don't show in the photos! - that ruins privacy. In this case there is only one trullo (owned by the same owner) next door, and then countryside for miles around, Sunloungers as well as outdoor dining, tables and chairs for al fresco eating. Pool loungers/beach towels/shade umbrellas all provided on site.

The Puglia/Molise region
Puglia is where the Italians on holiday - the deep south remains unspoilt. Miles of beaches, small hillside villages with marble streets unchanged since the middle ages. Perfect for families. Fantastic food and wine - about half the price of northern Italy. the southern Italians love children, they are welcome in even the smartest places. The area right by the sea is very hot in summer, often 40C, but drive just a few minutes' inland to the gently 500metre hills, and the temperature is a perfect 30C or so. Mild spring and Autumn, typically 20c, a heated pool such as our makes all the difference. There is a great Safari Park, markets, fascinating caves to visit and ancient buildings and cathedrals, all set in unspoit countryside.
There are literally hundreds of beaches within an hour's drive. The whole of the Adiratic coastline of the south, or cross to the Bay of Taranto, and another huge selection. There are more beaches than days of the year!
The Alberobello area
Alberobello is the Trulli Capital of Puglia. A listed World Hertiage site as over 3000 of the 5000 trulli still standing are in this town. there are only a couple of main streets. Park in the car park and walk around the beautiful, strange and mystical trulli. Alberobello is small enough that you can just nip in and out to collect food or visit a restaurant or the local shops, but big enough to offer a great choice. Just 5 minutes drive from the trulli. The beach is just 20 minutes' drive away acorss ancient olive groves.
Southern Italy is a mixture of traditional Catholic and traces of much older cultures. There are numerous Saints Days when statutes from a local church are paraded up and down the streets to great celebrations. There is a market every day in one of the nearby local towns,

We stayed 4 nights (5 of us in 2 rooms) and were really impressed by the standard of the Trullo. The rooms were clean & comfortable, nicely furnished with stunning views over the valley, vineyards &... more

We had very happy fortnight here with our three teenage children. The trullo had three bedrooms, two bathrooms and one communal room (kitchen/living room). There was also an outside seating area and pool area (pool was shared with the other trullo). Although very close to Alberobello, there were no other properties in sight. It was an excellent base from which to explore many beautiful towns in Puglia and was less than half an hour from the beach. It suited us perfectly as we were lucky with the weather and spent a lot of time and had all our meals outside. If we had had to spend more time inside though I think the living area might have felt on the small side for all five of us.
