Restoration to the most demanding modern standard to fill modern needs, but carefully faithful to original detail. Renters have total access to a hectare of land and trees - lots of space for the children to run around in. Huge number of beaches and sea just 15km away. Historic Puglia to see and explore - the UNESCO heritage area is just around the corner. Full WiFi and the pool is solar heated for Spring and Autumn breaks. There is full air conditioning throughout.

The trulli is just 5 minutes' drive from Alberobello, the Trulli Unesco-rated Capital. It's only a small town, but there are wonderful food shops with beautiful fresh produce. There is a proper Buffalo Mozzarella dairy on the edge of town! There are about 25 restaurants. 3 course dinner for 2 + the best wine at the most expensive restaurant in town still 30% cheaper than the UK! The food is so good even Italians come to Puglia for culinary holidays.English Agent (fluent in Italian).

The Puglia region

Puglia is where the Italians on holiday - the deep south remains unspoilt. Miles of beaches, small hillside villages with marble streets unchanged since the middle ages. Perfect for families. Fantastic food and wine - about half the price of northern Italy. the southern Italians love children, they are welcome in even the smartest places. The area right by the sea is very hot in summer, often 40C, but drive just a few minutes' inland to the gently 500metre hills, and the temperature is a perfect 30C or so. Mild spring and Autumn, typically 20c, a heated pool such as our makes all the difference. There is a great Safari Park, markets, fascinating caves to visit and ancient buildings and cathedrals, all set in unspoit countryside.

There are literally hundreds of beaches within an hour's drive. The whole of the Adiratic coastline of the south, or cross to the Bay of Taranto, and another huge selection. There are more beaches than days of the year!

Southern Italy

Alberobello is the Trulli Capital of Puglia. A listed World Hertiage site as over 3000 of the 5000 trulli still standing are in this town. there are only a couple of main streets. Park in the car park and walk around the beautiful, strange and mystical trulli. Alberobello is small enough that you can just nip in and out to collect food or visit a restaurant or the local shops, but big enough to offer a great choice. Just 5 minutes drive from the trulli. The beach is just 20 minutes' drive away acorss ancient olive groves.

Southern Italy is a mixture of traditional Catholic and traces of much older cultures. There are numerous Saints Days when statutes from a local church are paraded up and down the streets to great celebrations. There is a market every day in one of the nearby local towns,
