About This Listing
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.
Unbelievable value. The trullo is recently renovated, very tastefully decorated, spotless, and has plenty of room (for a Trullo) for a couple. The grounds of the masseria are beautiful as well, and only an 8 minute drive into the center of Martina Franca, and less than 30 minutes to other nearby towns. For the price, it's a great deal.
Riccardo was very professional and responsive. He was very friendly and was able to answer all questions in English. He even set us up for a private wine tour at I Pastini, which was a lot of fun.
Only negative: mobile data is very spotty in Martina Franca in general, and the wifi connection is only a pocket wifi hotspot. Not the owner's fault, but something to keep in mind if you need the connection for work or travel.
The perfect balance of peace, space and nature. This will meet your trulli desires. Great hosts who really care about your experience - their food suggestions are spot on! It was pretty cold when we were there so it was pretty cold inside the trulli too despite the internal heating. But in the high heat of a Puglian summer the coolness inside the trulli will be what you really want. A great location for experiencing all the nearby hot spots: Martina Franca, Alberobello, Locorotondo.
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!
