We stayed here for 5 days and all felt very at home here. We were a party of seven adults and one baby. Plenty of room. Nicely furnished and very well cared for. All the gadgets worked. The pool was great and the outside area was a great place to relax, eat al fresco and generally chill out. It's down a narrow lane with rough stone walls either side so watch out when you drive up to it. Take a sat nav with you and fix your position when you get there. It's hard to find when you are unfamiliar with it.

We decided to meet the Southen Italy. It was the right to try the Trullo - it is so traditional in this region! Trullo Carlotta is very comfortable, modern and has all the necessary inside. We are parents with 4 children. Children like the swiming pool very much. We were alone in big olive garden. No noise and no close neighbors. There are a lot of entertainment not far from accomodation - the dino parc (for small children) 3 km and the caves 7 km. The town of trullo Alberobello and the safari Zoo about 20 km. Beautifull beaches with blue flags from 10 to 20 km. Very responsive and always ready to help Alex and Julia - they have the key from the house. I would like to come back sometimes in the future!
