We also have Private Pizza making at the trullo or a Private Chef.
The Puglia region
The virtually undiscovered region is rural with historic towns perched on the top of the many hills, painted white to reflect the glistening sun. Puglia is Italy’s largest olive oil producing region with olive trees in every garden it is easy to see why. Every town has a market day selling locally produced goods from fresh fruit and veg, to clothes and shoes, a bargain to be found by all. The sun in July and August can be very strong, but with the weather being pleasant from May through to October there is plenty of time to explore this beautiful region.
Alberobello is an historic town made up with over a thousand “trulli”, a small cylindrical building that peasants built hundreds of years ago to avoid paying taxes, now a popular tourist attraction. At just 5 km away with its many restaurants that are open all year round, it is within easy reach. In late September they hold a large festival where the whole town comes alive for four days with street markets, a fun fair and religious processions.

"Third visit and still loving every minute"
My family and friends visit Italy every year, staying in many different areas and villas the length and breadth of the country but unusually this was my third visit to Trullo negli Alberi. We have never returned to the same holiday venue, always on the lookout for something different each time we return. What made this trip different is that there was no reason to look elsewhere; Puglia and the trullo in particular have everything we are looking for.
Each year we return, there is always a slight frisson of excitement – what has Chris done to the place this year? As it happens this year it was solar heating in the pool. Seeing as I spend most of my time in and around the pool, this was a delightful and much appreciated surprise! He has also installed more DVD's than one family could ever watch plus the weather this year was so amazing we never even turned on the set once.
I don't often do this but I would like to report on some recommendations and hope they will still be useful next year.
Do visit the little restaurant along the road. We found it too dark to walk there though it's not far as there are no road lights but then we were told that no one worries about drinking and driving that distance and certainly the locals took this advice to heart. I have to report that I didn't.
You must eat at the 'slow food' restaurant just off the small square in Locorotondo. The chef/owner/waitress there is something you should go and experience. You get given what she's cooked and she expects you to finish it all. The wine for a local venue was rough and ready but somehow it all went so well with the venue and the food that we loved it. As we left she shook our hands and wished us well – what more can someone want for an evening out.
Our flight left very late from Bari (20.50 in September 2011) so we were looking for something to do after we had to leave our 'home' for the week. We chose to visit the beach club Masseria Coccoro and though expensive it does give you access to a wonderful beach, lunch and more importantly showers, setting you up nicely for the return to UK.
This year we had the chance to arrive 2 days early so stayed in Matera prior to arriving at the tullo. If you have time (and you really should make it if possible) do visit the town. There is nothing like this anywhere in the world. But don't take my word for it – visit it for yourself and see if I'm right!
Enjoy your visit to Trullo negli Alberi, shake Chris by the hand and give Alison a hug from me for I have no doubt we will be back sometime.

"Gorgeous villa in Puglia"
The Trullo was perfect for our group -we had 4 young children under 8 and it was great as all on one level and the pool was gated . There was also a shallow end to the pool and a ledge all the way arund so great for kids swimming. There was lots of space and every room has it's own bathroom. There is loads to do around the area and the owners Chris and Alison are really helpful in organising things should you need it. They left us some food for our first night as we arrived late and it was fabulous, they really thought of everything and left a very generous welcome gift of wine, olive oil etc. We had a wonderful week and would return.

"Fabulous trullo in a wonderful part of Italy"
We (6 adults and one younger person) had a wonderful week at the trullo and its in a lovely area. Chris and Alison are wonderful hosts and made everything perfect for us.
If you get chance have Palma and her mum over for a traditional pasta evening in the trullo.
Would definitely recommend for a relaxing stay in a lovely trullo.

"Fantastic Holiday Place"
Our 1 week in this Trullo was one of the highlights of our 7 week trip to Europe. The place was every bit as good as the photos, if not better. It was very clean and contained all the amenities we needed. Our two children loved the little play area with swing and slide (we were able to watch them from the hammock nearby!). The rest of my family enjoyed the pool and reading books in the sun. Chris and Alison were fantastic and very helpful, the booklet supplied on the local area and the trullo itself was also very useful.
Alberobello is a great town, we rode into town on the bikes supplied and on other days loved shopping at the local markets. We took a day trip to Polignano, but for most part we just enjoyed staying at the Trullo. Whilst a car is probably a must, I would recommend this place to anyone.
