“Quiet and relaxing”
Had a great holiday here. Keith was really helpful both before we arrived and once we were there. The directions to get there were perfect. There is loads of space and so our son loved running around and cooling off in the pool. The house is very cool inside which is ideal as the days were extremely hot. The surrounding white villages are all a drive away but none too far and each worth a short trip for markets, eating and people watching.
“What a special place...”
From the moment we met Jane to the moment we left our experience of Trullo Bellissimo was fantastic. The trullo itself is a stunning building and grounds with outdoor pool, dining and BBQ area and olive groves give it a luxuriuos feel. Inside the trullo, we had all the mod cons you could want including everything to look after our 10 month old son. What makes Trullo Bellissimo extra special is the increidle attention to detail and the interior decor...this sets it apart from other 'luxury' accomodation.
“Unique and wonderful place with huge pool”
This trullo has everything you could want and is fantastic for families. We have 3 children and they slept in one room and we had the other, both rooms have their own bathrooms. The kitchen is well equipped and the garden and outside area perfectly designed for cooking and eating outside. The inside is beautifully and very personally decorated and all well kept. Keith and Jane were so helpful right from us making the booking to when we left.
Owner's reply: Although Bellissimo has only two bedrooms, you almost feel the excitement of the children sleeping in the 300 year old trullo, which is so much like an ‘Aladdin’ s cave’! It is great that Mum & Dad were also able to have there own space, lets face it-they are on holiday too. The appreciation of what we created, is so very much appreciated.
What an amazing place! The house is very unique and has everything you need for a relaxing holiday with young children. The garden and pool were gorgeous and we spent most of the week playing in the pool and exploring the olive grove. Very private and secluded, but fantastic supermarket and restaurants nearby. The owner and property manager could not have been more helpful and kind to us which makes travelling with small children so much more enjoyable and less stressful!
Owner's reply: I knew that we were dealing with a lovely family from the initial enquiry and first conversation. As an owner, it is a real a pleasure to assist, when guests ask questions about the area and facilities in order to enhance their vacation experience. It is even more satisfying to know that the facilities provided have enabled Mum and Dad, as well as the children, to have a relaxing and fun time, whatever the weather. Thank you for your comments about the terraces, gardens and pool, it has taken 5 years of hard work to reach the standard we wanted, in order to create a very special holiday destination.
“A unique and beautiful trullo in immaculate grounds and beautiful countryside”
The customer service we received from Keith and Moira from our first phone call enquiry was exemplary. The house keeper met us late in the evening. We were introduced to the villa and nibbles and drinks were available on arrival. Moira and Keith have created a beautiful holiday home which is decorated beautifully and very personally. Home made chutneys and olive oil, lovely spacious gardens and olive groves and a heated pool make a very relaxing break. However, the middle of May was pleasant but a little too cool at times for the pool. We loved the peace and quiet of the area, the beautiful hilltop villages, coastline and amazing architecture in Lecce and around.
Owner's reply: We are so happy that Trullo Bellissimo came up to all expectations and really appreciate the kind comments about the house and gardens. It is only from Reviews like this that we feel the formula is working, but we will continue to strive for excellence.
“A wonderful oasis in beautiful Puglia”
From the moment that we first enquired about the property the wonderful owners couldn't have done more to help ensure that our stay was a relaxing one - no mean feat when you have two small children in tow... The property itself was in pristine condition and the garden and pool a wonderful oasis amongst the olive trees. All in all a wonderful break.
Owner's reply: The most satisfying part of owning a holiday home is being able to welcome lovely families who somehow appreciate all of the hard work that goes on behind the scenes to make their vacation special and memorable. To have this appreciation articulated in a review, really does make it all worth while. Thank you for those kind words, which are particularly special to us.
“Put this on your bucket list:)”
We have never stayed in a trullo, we had rented villas around the world, but this is in a class of its own. If you want to experience rustic Italy, not the Tuscan experience, then trullo bellisimmo is for you. I can only describe this property as magical & unique. Moira and kieth have thought of everything for you, every cupboard you open has what you need, and with the support of Jane who lives locally, you cannot go wrong. Jane has all the info and advice you will need for a magical holiday. Even if you don't speak Italian, a smile goes a long way with the locals, when shopping.The local supermarket has an extensive choice including wines from the region. The weather could have been kinder for us, as we were itching to use the pool,I'm sure the neighbors heard my shrieks on my first dip! We had had a crazy two weeks in the UK prior to our week in may, we cannot have asked for a more restful, peaceful, idyllic location, with the amazing white town not far away on the hill. We were happy to cook and enjoy all that was offered at this luxury property. Do your selves a favour put this one on the list and enjoy. Thank you Jane for your friendship and especially to kieth and Moira for having the vision in the first place. Moira all the prior communications with you built the experience before we even arrived. One day i hope we meet in person. You have all made this unforgettable for craig and myself:) Who knows when our paths will cross again but I'm sure they will somewhere, someday, somehow :)
Owner's reply: Wow, what can I say but thank you to two such discerning travellers all the way from the other side of the globe! We work so hard to improve upon the 'Bellissimo' experience year on year, and come the approach of our first guests it's always a knuckle biting experience to wait to see if in fact we have got it right, just because you put so much store into making it the most perfect time possible. It's always a pleasure too, to have an on-line dialogue with guests before they arrive, my mantra is to do all the hard work beforehand in order that they can hit the ground - relaxing! For my part too I would love to meet up with Lou and Craig - it has been an absolute pleasure to welcome them to Bellissimo, and make new friendships along the way.
“wonderful, Magical Place”
We are veteran winter travelers to Italy but normally have stayed in the North ... this time we added a week at Trullo Bellissimo, arriving on New Year's Eve. The house is about 8 km from the "citta bianca" of Ostuni, filled with interesting sights and good restaurants. It's in an area with many other trull, although most seemed to be empty at this time of year ... that means we got what we wanted, quiet and seclusion in a luxury house. The house is fairly small but very comfortable, with two sitting rooms, two bedrooms, and very modern bathrooms with good water pressure and lots of hot water. The decor is a combination of traditional and Indian-incluence and is quite romantic. The beds are very comfortable as well. The house is very well heated. But the best part of Trullo Bellissimo is the garden ... the owners have done a magnificent job in designing the garden and pool. The weather in Puglia winter is cool but the hordes of tourists are nowhere to be seen. It is probably the one time of the year when you can get into restaurants without reservations, see sights without crowds of tourists, and drive unfettered anywhere. And so, we are already planning our return next winter to TB and Puglia!
Owner's reply: How wonderful and refreshing it is to read a review from guests who have taken the leap and visited Bellissimo outside of the normal summer months. I'm so glad that the house is now being lived in during the colder weather as we made certain to install central heating, a great pellet stove, heavy duty winter curtains, flannelette bedlinen, 13 tog duvets and hot water bottles. Everything really that you need to snuggle up during the colder months after a day out in the crisp winter sunshine, travelling roads almost deserted by traffic, watching the neighbours going about their olive harvest, strolling along empty beaches. This Italy, released from it's summer madness is charming and old again - delightfully Italian rather than European. And on the whole the weather is still great - OK it gets chilly in the evening, but even in November it's quite possible to walk around in jeans and t-shirt, and enjoy a lunchtime barbecue outside on the terraces. So I'm really glad that this delightful couple came to enjoy Ostuni at it's finest - the beauty of this part of Italy doesn't just begin in June and and end in September, every part of the year brings its own delight.
“Fabulous House In A Fabulous Setting!”
Full marks for this stunning renovation. Catered for every need. Jane the housekeeper met us on arrival and gave us a very warm welcome. From there we just relaxed, ate well (in the many nearby restaurants) and enjoyed a very much needed rest. Only negative was that the pool wasn't heated!
Owner's reply: It's always a tad disconcerting to look after guests who already have their own holiday home, there's always a little niggling doubt that you won't live up to expectations. so it's with great relief that I read that this charming couple enjoyed a wonderful week at Bellissimo, and that their feedback reflects a very positive thumbs up. On the back of this we are also talking to our lovely plumber about installing solar panels to heat the pool so that it can be used all year. Italians seem to think you're crazy to want to swim any time before June or after August, but our clients are so right, and that after all, is what we seek to do - meet, and excell your expectations to ensure you have the best break that we can provide.
Another year has passed and we have had another memorable week in Puglia at Trullo Bellissimo. It is quite the most relaxing and well appointed holiday destination, with a beautiful pool & outdoor eating area, fabulous local towns overflowing with interesting things to either see or do. Additional benefits are the 20 mins from the beach .... It didn't take us a second thought to book up again for 2012!
Owner's reply: We are so glad to have been able to welcome this delightful family back again, and indeed look forward to seeing them next year ( they have already made a booking). The girls are a delight, the youngest has learned to swim in our pool, they are learning lots about nature from the different trees and flowers in the garden, and it is a safe environment for their parents to leave them unattended. Returning to the same property is a further weight off the shoulders of the parent. They already know how the house works, where the best beaches are, which are their favourite restaurants, and the children are comfortable in returning to a place which is already known to them, so there are less questions, fewer histrionics, and I think it generally leads towards a more peaceful break for everybody. Next year the oldest daughter is celebrating her birthday whilst at Bellissimo, so we will decorate the house with banners and balloons, make a birthday cake, and little princess tiaras. I really do look forward to welcoming them back, it is an absolute pleasure.
