Trullo della Luna
About the home
'Trullo della Luna' is a farmhouse, it is the typical building house you can find in Valle d'Itria: it is a classic 4-cones rural trullo. This type of building was once used only by the local peasants, now its shapes are appreciated by the entire world and are representative of this Italian region and its ancient culture. This area of Apulia is becoming a new Chianti, a place where the nature fuses its beauty into the controlled, quiet human environment. We recently bought this trullo when it was completely abandoned. As we are both architects, we saw it as if its dry-stone blocks were the ruins of an ancient temple, and we have restored it with a great enthusiasm. Our aim is to rent it for holiday stays and use it for our familiar purposes. See for further information our website linked in the contact area of this advertisement.

The Puglia/Molise region
In the "Location and amenities" section of our web site you will find a series of suggested places to visit during your holiday in Trullo della Luna. You'll see all the descriptions are based on our direct experiences and reflect our familiar approach to the areas.
Briefly though it is well worth visiting the city of Matera with its abandoned old town, which is included by UNESCO in its World Heritage Sites. Or Alberobello, considered the quaintest town in Italy, it consists almost entirely of trulli (over a thousand of them); a series of urban quarters entirely full filled by neatly whitewashed houses with conical roofs, made of superimposed dry-stone blocks.
Approximately 20 km from Trullo della Luna there is the Natural Reserve of Torre Guaceto, a stretch of uncontaminated coast with beautiful small beaches of crystal clear waters. The park extends itself for approximately 1,000 hectares of land and 2,000 hectares of sea including about seven kilometres of uncontaminated small bays of golden sand alternated with beautiful headlands. Here you can go bike riding, snorkelling, sailing or just soak up the incredible atmosphere.
Other places of interest include the beautiful village of Grottaglie, famous for the handmade ceramic products. Or the caves of Grotte di Castellana and Fasano Wildlife Park- ideal family day trips! The small round village, Locorotondo,made by whitewashed buildings with plenty of small shops and restaurants also makes for an interesting day out- be sure to try the local wine!
The Ostuni / San Michele Salentino area
A more confidential area of our private site contains all the tips for restaurants, shops and all the useful instructions for your stay in Trullo della Luna and nearby resources.
Ostuni is situated on three hills at the edge of the Murge, a short distance away from the Adriatic coast and 18 km from Trullo della Luna. The medieval village is clustered on one of the three hills and stands with its whitewashed facade over a limestone cliff. Thus Ostuni is called also "the white town". We suggest visiting this town when the sky is particularly clear or even when a thunderstorm is coming and the sun still lights up the buildings: the intense contrast of luminescence gives a unique great effect!
It's also amazing taking a visit on evening when the town shows its tourist vocation offering numerous candle lit restaurants, bars and shops.
The town, Messapian in origin, has also many important pieces of architecture and art which is worth visiting. The cattedrale (15th cent.) has a splendid gothic facade and the interior was remodelled in 18th century style.
