Il carro e la luna is positioned on the edge of Alberobello in the Itria valley. It is a combination of old and new with part of the building being in the original trullo and the four en suite double bedrooms in a separate building behind the main house all set in extensive mature gardens.
The property was originally a bed and breakfast business and part of the original building is sometimes occupied by the owner who stay there in a care taking capacity. He has lived in the area all his life and is a wealth of information with regards to the town, its people and its history.
In the original trullo area there are 2 main living areas, a bathroom, kitchen and one of two possible sleeping areas. The kitchen is classically Italian and is crammed with artifacts and nik naks of Italian life. There is a large spacious dining and seating area next to the kitchen and outside there are a further 2 large tables under covered pergolas.
Italians prefer to cook outdoors in the summer to stop the inside of the buildings getting two hot and here there are two traditional outdoor ovens and a BBQ.
The four large double bedrooms are behind the main house and all have en suites as well as heating and air conditioning.
The front of the house and drive is surrounded by mature pine trees which keep the cars nice and cool through the hot summer months. The Gardens are extensive and provide the house with a private and secluded feel to it and a pleasant surrounding for the swimming pool.
