The space

If you have not visited Puglia before then you have missed out on a unique experience, as this is the home of these charming Trulli stone houses.

The word Trullo comes from the Greek "Tholos" meaning a circular construction with a cupola (conical roof). They were originally built without mortar about 400 years ago - although their ancestry date back to Megalithic times!

They are small houses which were built in a way, that could be extended as the family grew. They have thick stone walls, usually about 3 feet in thickness (so lovely and cool in the hot weather) and the interior living spaces are created from the niches, alcoves and arches of the house. MIne has a particularly tall roof, so I have created an "upstairs" mezzanine bedroom that usually sleeps 1 person, but there is space for another single bed.

I have a wonderful quirky hand-crafted wooden ladder on a splendid pulley system to get you up there! Downstairs will sleep 2 people in a very roomy sofa bed, as well as a single divan that has a proper mattress on it. In the living area is a very special dining room table (that was found in the beautiful town of Monopoli - well worth a visit if you have the time!)

The kItchenette is in an alcove, as is the small bathroom which has a shower ( If you are over 6ft tall then you may need to look elsewhere, unless of course you shrink in the wash!)

The house has central heating, a washing machine, fridge, television and cd player, as well as your own unique water supply - electrically pumped from a well.

The property is fenced and gated with an intercom buzzer. It has a small garden area with parking space.

You are within a few minutes (by car) of a great grocery shop and a dairy where you can buy freshly-made cheeses, cream and butter. Just a little further on and you will be in the main town of Alberobello.

Also 5 minutes down the road from me is a B&B with a swimming pool. The sea is also only about 35 minutes away. There are many beautiful towns surrounding the area which are well worth a visit.

Puglia is famous for its wine production as well as being the main olive oil supplier to Europe having over 60 million trees! Food is always an adventure in Italy, so don't forget to to explore the many opportunities.

In the summer, there are almost non-stop festivities in the way of concerts, processions, folkloric and international events that will add to the enjoyment of your visit. If you are interested then please contact me as there is not enough space to describe all the possibilities of what will make your stay a trulli memorable one!
