Trullo | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Situated just 5 miles from the chic town of Martina Franca and a short drive to the clear tropical award winning beaches of the Ionian coastline, Trullo of Dreams can be found.
The road stops just past the property and this ensures the tranquil location is not disturbed.
The electric gates lead into a spacious parking area for up to 5 cars and the private land of over 2 acres.
Here you can find a selection of fruit trees including fig, apples, passion fruit and pears, all your to pick from when in season.
This grand trullo has been beautifully renovated and was chosen, from hundreds of properties in the area, by an American Television Company to be filmed for House Hunters International in 2010.
On entering the trullo you are immediately surrounded by the 3 original cones which have been preserved beautifully and hold the history of hundreds of years gone by.
This is now the a spacious living and dining area and is dominate by the large, original, open log burn fireplace, next to this is the second of 3 double patio doors.
Entering the newer part of the trullo you will find a spacious stone built Puglian kitchen, a pleasure for keen cooks.
Here there is a full size dishwasher and espresso coffee machine with a supply of coffee.
Stroll along the hallway and you will find 2 tastefully decorated romantic bedrooms and 2 fully tiled bathrooms (one of which is en-suit).
Finished beautifully throughout with antique and solid wood furniture the feeling of quality surrounds you.
Undoubtedly this trullo has one of the most spectacular gardens in the area.
Fruit trees are dotted throughout the beautifully maintained grassed area and here you can pick from the selection of herbs like oregano, thyme, basil, rosemary and of course mint for your evening mojito.
Five centuries of history shades you from the warm summer sun, the wonderful olive tree.
Relax on the double double sunbeds or sleep the afternoon away in the hammock under the shade.
The total privacy of the property and large swimming pool (10m x 5m) makes this trullo a very special retreat.

The Puglia/Molise region
Exploring this beautiful area:
There is so much to do and see in this unspoilt part of Italy.
The trullo is just 7km from the beautiful, chic, baroque town of Martina Franca.
In the summer months the town is full of activity.
The city is known as the 'citta del festival', the city of festivals.
The most famous being the musical festival, which attracts people from worldwide in the last 2 weeks of July.
Martina Franca has many excellent restaurants, cafes and for the keen shopper hours can be lost weaving your way through the many designer boutiques.
Surrounded by pretty hilltop town with enchanting historic centres and beautiful piazzas I would recommend you visit: Cisternino, Locorotondo, Ostuni (The White City), Monopoli, Pulignano al mare, Conversano.
Matera, Lecce and Gallipoli are a little further away but undoubtedly worth the drive.
Miles of clean,white,award winning, sandy beaches can be found on the Ionian coastline, just 30 minutes from the trullo.
Dining out here is a pleasure. Fresh seafood, locally grown fruit and vegetables and tender meat dishes all at a very reasonable price.
Local Puglian wine is now known all over the world, you can have the pleasure of sampling this at local prices.
If you wish to visit the wine museum in Alberobello and sample the wines I can organise this for.
You could also spend a morning seeing the famous olive oil of Puglian being made or the wide range of local cheeses.
