LOCALITY

The town of Alberobello is under 10 mintues drive away and here you will find an abundance of restaurants, cafe/bars, ice cream parlours and ample supermarkets for your needs.

If you like wine then a visit to Albea winery and museum in town is a must.

An interesting shop called Trullo Antichi Sapori which has been selling quality local cheeses, salami, wines, olive oils, pasta, etc since the 1930's is well worth a visit and can be found in the old town amongst the all the famous trullis in the tourist zone. Free delicous samples and a very warm welcome.

Visit Cantina del Locorotondo, sample the wine and buy if you like it, just a little further on (10 minutes drive) towards Martina Franca stop at Cantine di Marco and try theirs.  

There are lots of beaches with lidos for those who wish for some on-site services.

The Zoolandia experience at Fasano is a day out for the family.

The Caves of Castellana Grotte are a good opportunity to enjoy one of the most amazing natural wonders of a wonderful Puglia.  Under 6's go free and tours are available in English and German.

Lecce is known by the locals as the Florence of the South and is very well worth a visit.  Take the tourist train and hop and off as it tours the streets around the attractions. A vist to the Basillica di Santa Croce is a must, it is stunning.

There is so much to discover here in Puglia and this is just a taster.

Memorable and enjoyable week
Absolutely superb: a beautiful property finished to a high standard. The photos dont quite do it justice (especially the pool, which is larger and deeper than we were expecting). We were a party of six adults and we were very comfortable. In less perfect weather we might have wished for a bit more living space, but as the sun shone for almost the whole week this was not an issue at all. The smallest bedroom is pretty small, and got very hot at night - but this was easily solved with an extra fan. Its located conveniently close to Alberobello, but far enough away that youre completely on your own (you will need a car). Alberobello itself is perhaps a little bit twee, but it comes to life at night and Locorotondo and Martina Franca are both splendid and within easy reach. Donatella, the property manager, was incredibly welcoming and friendly - we didnt need to contact her during the week, but Ive no doubt she would have been helpful if we had. The local ingredients are fantastic and the kitchen is well-equipped. We enjoyed cooking there so much that we only went out for dinner once. One final point: if you bring a sat-nav you will not regret it! The owners directions are extremely clear and accurate, but if you find yourself leaving Alberobello by a different road or approaching from another direction it would be easy to get confused by the twisty lanes. Overall, an extremely memorable and enjoyable week - many thanks!

Good value for money
This is a very nice property in a quiet rural area but not too far from Alberobello and its World Heritage Site - 10 minute drive. The villa is well laid out and equipped and there is a nice garden with an excellent swimming pool. The property is surrounded by open "grounds" so it is also secluded. The property and pool are well maintained. The rental was good value for money and I would recommend it to others.

Lovely Location
Lovely location - secluded but near to several towns and wonderful restaurants. There are good supermarkets nearby. The pool is enormous, but if you want the beach, a 30 minute drive will get you there. The facilities at the trullo are excellent and the grounds are beautifully maintained. The local help / advisors for the property were great. They responded quickly to the few problems we had. A wonderful place to stay!
