Trullo | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 5
Trulli Alto is a quality 3 bedroom/two bathroom family trullo. Beautiful views over olive groves and vineyards, yet just 5 minutes drive from small town with restaurants, shops and other facilities. Private full size pool shared with one other trullo. Suits families or groups of friends as well as romantic smaller trullo for couples. Cots/high chairs for small children. Restoration to the most demanding modern standard to fill modern needs, but carefully faithful to original detail. Renters have total access to a hectare of land and trees - lots of space for the children to run around in. Huge number of beaches and sea just 15km away. Historic Puglia to see and explore - the UNESCO heritage area is just around the corner. Full WiFi and the pool is SOLAR HEATED for Spring and Autumn breaks. New this season: AIR CONDITIONING.
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. There is a proper Buffalo Mozzarella dairy on the edge of town! There are about 25 restaurants. 3 course dinner for 2 + the best wine at the most expensive restaurant in town still 30% cheaper than the UK! The food is so good even Italians come to Puglia for culinary holidays.

|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!
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,

"Gorgeous italian villa in relaxed & peaceful location"
Gorgeous Italian villa with everything you need for a relaxed, chilled out holiday. We travelled with family & friends including a small child & we couldn't have asked for anything more. We've travelled to the region several times in the past & this is definitely one of the best villas we've stayed in. Lovely area, great local food & drink and a villa offering all the modern home comforts - fab holiday! PS. car hire is a must.
Glad you had a good time and we thought of everything. Absolutely agree car hire is essential. so we specify that very carefully.

"Brilliant location and well equipped"
We really enjoyed our stay at Trullo Alto in September this year. The view from the. Trullo is over rolling farmland and we enjoyed having our meals outside to make the most of it. The beauty of the location was a surprise given that it is only 5 minutes in the car from Alberobello. The swimming pool has recently been refurbished and the overall standard of equipment and decor in the Trullo was excellent.
One point to note is that the other Trullo owned by the same owner adjoins Trullo Alto. We had a very nice and quiet couple next door who were out and about a lot so it did not matter to us, but if you want total seclusion this is probably not the place for you (unless you took both Trulli at the same time for a larger group).
There are separate entrances to each trullo and they are screened from each other. We are also very careful about our guests to ensure that they tend to be very quiet couples or small families who are considerate. So far we have never had a complaint about other guests and several occasions where good friendships have been formed. In one case the guests at each trullo now meet for Christmas every year!

We stayed last month and had a lovely holiday. We used both Trulli and despite soaring temperatures it remained nice and cool inside. The new pool heating was very effective and meant the pool was perfect even for our 9 month old at the beginning of the season. There was a cherry tree next to one trulli which was covered in ripe cherries so we ate them all week straight off the tree!
Hire care essential, but with one there are plenty of places to explore. Read the comments book and go to the restaurant that you can walk to... Two of us went there one evening and has a lovely meal of mixed antipasti, a pizza and desert combined with a carafe of wine. Felt slightly guilty when the whole bill came to 33Euros!
Thank you to Mark and the team for going out of your way and returning our baby monitor to us in the UK after we left it behind...

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

"Beautifully restored trullo in peaceful location"
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.

"Great accommodation refurbed to a high standard, with stunning views over farmland and vineyards."
An idyllic holiday retreat located within the charming region of Puglia. Both trulli have been refurbed to a high standard and have all the 'ingredients' you need for a great holiday. We have just booked to return for our third year and on each visit the owner has invested further in the property and made improvements to ensure the high standard is retained. I have looked at other trulli in the area, but for our family and the friends we holiday with (includes 4 children ranging in age from 5-19), nothing seems to compare.

"Lovely accommodation in a peaceful setting, very relaxing."
Our family stayed at the Alto Trulli for 2012 , as we liked it so much in 2011, and once again enjoyed the well appointed accommodation, pool and surroundings. the local town has much to enjoy, particularly in the evening when it really seems to come to life.

"trulli and gelati"
The property is as described, the location is great, far enough from the first village to get a quiet environment while staying at the the trully or by the pool. A lot to see around this area, do not miss the best Ice cream maker in Puglia in Lecce 120 kms from Alberobello and the other city closed by where you will find always something to visit and nice cafe and restaurant.
In summary , just looking forward coming back
