Kindness, comfort and relaxation in an amazing scenery... the holiday in Puglia you've been waiting for!
"Trullo dell'ulivo", which was originally a barn, is a charming little house nicely furnished. It can accommodate up to 4 people and includes an entrance/living room with a double sofa bed, a dining room, a double bedroom, a kitchenette with domestic appliances and cutlery, a bathroom with shower.
Within an ancient farm land, lain deep in the green hills of Apulia, our trulli will greet you in this unspoiled scenery made of quiet and beauty, among olive tree fields and stone buildings from a magical past.
Guests have access to the whole trullo, to the laudry room and to the outside relaxing areas (a courtyard and a shared terrace) furnished with stone tables and umbrellas, deckchairs, barbecue. There are also a little garden and a nice private wood for walking and picnics!
Interaction with Guests
With high sense of hospitality and passion for our land, we like to greet people from all over the world giving them useful tips about discovering Puglia.
This is the land of trulli and fortified masserie, flourishing vegetation, lime painted old towns, rich traditions and tasty food.
The trullo is very well placed for exploring all the historic towns of the Valle d'Itria as well as for access to the beaches along the Adriatic coastline.
But, from here, you can easily reach Lecce and the Salento area, Matera or the land of Bari!
Other Things to Note
Internet WiFi available only in the garden, via mobile hotspot.
Very beautiful trullo in an idyllic landscape! The trullo is comfortable, quiet and clean, very close to Martina Franca so perfect to travel around.
Riccardo and Stefania are nice people who warmly welcomed us and helped to find good shops, restaurants and cities to visit.
The Trullo is just simply fantastic! Quiet, beautiful surroundings, very close to lively town Martina Franca and lot's of other amazing things to see and do. Riccardo and his girlfriend were very kind and helpful and gave us some good tips. For the house itself, it is very clean, looks exactly like the pictures, we got fresh towels in the mid of our stay which was a nice surprise but note - we did have to buy our own basics such as salt, pepper, olive oil, toilet paper, detergent etc.
We had a wonderful week and holiday, thanks so much Riccardo!
Nous avons passé deux nuits dans le Trullo dell'Ulivo et avons adoré!! Ce fût une expérience unique de séjourner dans cette demeure typique de la Pouilles qui est, de plus, idéalement située (à portée de tous les points d'intérêt de la région: Martina Franca, Alberobello, Locorotondo, Noci, Cisternino, etc..) dans un endroit tranquille. Riccardo et Stefania sont très très accueillants, disponibles et nous ont donné pleins de conseils pour visiter la Valle d'Itria.
Nous recommandons à tous cet adresse.
My wife and I just stayed in the Trullo for 10 nights and had an amazing holiday. The Trullo is perfectly located for visiting all mayor highlights of Puglia. It was clean and the bed was very nice. It has a large outside space to relax and walk. It is a quiet and peaceful place close to lively Martina Franca.
Riccardo and Stefania made us feel right at home. They were very helpfull, polite and spoke good English. They know a lot of interesting things about the region and gave us some useful tips about which places to visit and which shops/restaurants to go to. This added to our holiday because we visited some great places we otherwise would have missed. They even gave us a list with addresses and were easy to reach by text.
On our request, Riccardo didn´t bother to buy football-tickets before our holiday which he gave to us at arrival. Him and Stefania also took us to a typical Puglia butcher-shop to buy local meat for our bbq.
Thanks to them and their Trullo we were able make most of our stay in Puglia!
We had a great time at Riccardo's and Stefania's Trullo. The appartment is just like it is described on the Internet - the interior is pretty and situated in very nice surroundings (olive and fruit trees just behind the house), a few kilometers outside of Martina Franca. The hosts were very welcoming and had a lot of useful information prepared for us. Thank you very much, we'll recommend you!
We stayed for 3 nights in the trullo in August, and it just wasn't long enough. We loved it! Such a peaceful area! The trullo is really unique. It is beautifully decorated, making the most of the trullo features, really clean and very well presented. Really pleasant temperature inside even though outside was plus 30 degrees. The closest town, Martina Franca, is lovely and only a couple of minutes drive away. The whole area is really picturesque with the trulli dotted across the landscape.
Riccardo and Stefania were welcoming, helpful and very passionate about their area. They provided us with a map of Puglia and information for the surrounding area. They even left a list of local supermarkets/ restaurants, etc.
One thing to note we had difficulty finding the place, as the "Pin" on the (website hidden) map link in the listing is not accurate. But our frustration quickly melted away when we saw the beautiful trullo awaiting us. Highly recommeded! Cant wait to go back!
We have spent 3 weeks in Puglia. We have enjoyed this beautiful area around Martina Franca. Especially the Valle d'Itria is very beautiful with the nice “trulli’. Martina Franca, Ostuni, Bari, Brindisi and Lecce are worth to visit. We liked the beaches too, we found perfect beaches on the Adriatic Sea and the Gulf of Taranto. Our stay in the trullo was also very good! We were friendly welcomed by Riccardo and Stefania. Everything was very good and clean. The trullo was nice and cool while outside it was above 30 degrees. We enjoyed the terrace where we had shadow under the parasol. We have enjoyed the rest of this area. It was also great that we had internet (outside). We got a lot of information by Riccardo and Stefania and we have seen many nice things (medieval parade in Oria, fireworks in Locorotondo) that we had missed otherwise. We think back to a fantastic and unforgettable holiday, thanks to the good care of Riccardo and Stefania!
