Trullo | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Trullo Fiore di Mare is an enchanting historic holiday home with a private access to the beach.
Exquisite holiday home Trullo with direct access to the sea.
Trullo Fiore di Mare is an ancient stone building, whose origin was lost in the mists of time, but meticulously restored conserving its historic details. The holiday home is one of the last remaining two-story Trullo in the region of Puglia.
Its uniqueness and architectural importance is documented and depicted by the French writer A.L. Castellan, who in the 800s, while he was traveling in Puglia towards Constantinopoli, visited the Trullo Fiore di Mare and added it to his book 'Lettres sur l'Italie'.
The multi-level terraced position of the trullo is superb, overlooking the famous beach of 'Ponte Lama' - protected by the Italian government as it is the only remaining beach with white pebble stones in Trani - from which it is separated by a private gate.
The lawn and colorful garden surrounding the Trullo is well maintained and enriched by a variety of plant and flower species, hence the name Trullo Fiore di Mare. The furniture selection and layout reflects the modern minimalistic style so as to accentuate the original features of the Trullo.
The microclimate of all the environments of the trullo is very pleasant, thanks to the proximity of the sea and the great thickness of the stone walls, but of course can be changed when desired thanks to an effective air-conditioning (hot&cold), provided in all the rooms.
Trullo Fiore di Mare is divided in four terraced levels and offers its guests maximum privacy since each of the bedrooms is equipped with a private bathroom and terrace with sea view.

The Puglia/Molise region
Puglia is a wonderful area to consider. It offers at least one excellent archeological museum, a host of cathedrals dating back to the 10th century, Greek and Roman ruins, a gleaming necklace of lively fishing villages, one of Europe's largest forests, a chain of medieval hilltowns, and some of the very cleanest beaches and water in the Mediterranean.
Trani is a seaport of Apulia, southern Italy, on the Adriatic Sea, in the new Province of Barletta-Andria-Trani (as of June 2009), and 40 km by railway West-Northwest of Bari.
Trani has lost its old city walls and bastions, but the 13th-century fort has been extensively restored as a museum and performance venue and is open to the public. Some of the streets in and around the Ghetto area remain much as they were in the medieval period, and many of the houses display more or less of Norman decoration.
The main monument of Trani is the Cathedral, dedicated to St. Nicholas the Pilgrim, a Greek who died in Trani in 1094 while on his way on pilgrimage to Rome, and some years later canonized by Urban II. It lies on a raised open site near the sea, and was consecrated, before its completion, in 1143.
