Tucked away, surrounded by 20 acres of olive groves and rambling fruit orchards, deep within the Valle d’Itria is Trullo Trazzonara.

Lovely shaded drystone walled travertine terraces and patios with padded stone seats, outdoor shower, sun loungers and umbrellas transform the garden and pool area into splendid open-air lounges, creating an enchanting place to relax. Fully explore the picturesque Puglia region by walking or cycling through its rural landscape dotted with whitewashed hill towns or head to the coast to enjoy sandy beaches. Popular towns to visit close to the house include Martina Franca, Ceglie Messapica, Ostuni and Locorontondo. These are all within a 30 minute drive, as are the beaches such as at Savelletri and Villanova.

We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and every one made good use of the pool. The love the fact there is a baby pool and a big pool for those who really love the water. Our last guests were doing 50 laps a day!
Fantastic as always

Jackie and www.pugliaholidayrentals.com in general are just great. They always pick the best villa for our requirements. I have booked numerous holidays through them and every time it's perfect and just spot on. I'm already in contact with Jackie to book next years 2024

Thank you for your 5 stars review of Trullo Trazzonara and Puglia Holiday Rentals Ltd. We always try our best to provide the right accommodation and needs for our clients. We look forward to seeing you next year.
Tranquillity and Luxury in abundance

As an extended family group of 13 we were spoilt with the amount of space for us all. The pool was superb and a very good size especially when full of people! The location is far enough away from other people to afford privacy but close enough to venture out into local towns such as Martina France and Ceglie Messapica. Lucia was very helpful and attentive - nothing was too much trouble. She also cooked a traditional meal for us one evening which was delicious. We were also delighted to receive our deposit back in full on the day we left. A wonderful holiday, thank you all.

Thank you for your 5 star review of Trullo Trazzonara. We are pleased your large group enjoyed the space the property offers and you made good use of the pool. Having a private cook for the evening is just one of the many bonuses of booking with Puglia Holiday Rentals Ltd. We hope to see you next year.
Fabulous villa, excellent service

I was very impressed by Puglia Holiday Rentals and Jackie in particular. They know all the properties really well, and live in Puglia as well as the UK so have an intimate knowledge of the area. They respond very quickly and were extremely well organised. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and in my experience it seems they are excellent value compared with others renting villas in Puglia. We were a family group of 14 and everyone had a wonderful holiday.

Thank you for your 5 star review of Trullo Trazzonara. We are pleased you loved the property and the service we gave you. We hope to welcome you back again.
Incredible week at Trullove (now Trullo Trazzonara)

This property is wonderful. I booked it for my 50th birthday and was joined by 12 friends. It was the perfect size for us. Two people had to sleep on sofabeds, but the rest got (in most cases) a double bed. We enjoyed breakfast and coffee outside on the stone seat, various points around the pool (huge - unheated by very refreshing) during the day and the seating near the pool for sundowners and watching some of us in some table-tennis matches. In the evening the kitchen we cooked and it was fabulous. All the kitchen equipment you need and a great big table to sit together to enjoy it. Later we'd sit outside at the wonderful large stone table and drink wine and listen to music.

Paradise in Puglia

Words can't begin to describe how incredible this property is! I had booked it originally for a belated birthday holiday with 10 of my closest friends and everything about it exceeded our already high expectations from the listing. 
The villa itself is beyond charming - we repeatedly referred to it as a self-care oasis. Very private, very clean, very relaxing. From the charming sun-baked trulli on the main house to the enormous, lavender-scented swimming pool, you can tell a lot of thought and detail went into this property. Every bedroom was so well-appointed and comfortable and there was ample space for everyone to have their own privacy (important in so large a group). 
The property owners were exceptionally warm and helpful in arranging our stay in the days leading up to the trip and their complimentary gifts of wine and local guides were as thoughtful as they were classy. I would also like to mention the property manager Lucia who was exceptional in her communications to the group and in making our stay comfortable. She is one in a million! 
Our stay at this property could truly not have been more magical and the memories we made that week will definitely have us making this an annual holiday! Thank you so much for having us!

Pool good. Some stuff a little tired. Communications/booking may include unpleasant surprises.

We were a group of 8 adults and 7 kids who enjoyed a fantastic time in this charming property. Most of the time was spent by the pool which was truly amazing. Barbequing, table tennis and relaxing in the quiet country side in the evenings was also great. We would reccommend a rental car to experience the region. The Ionic Sea was worth the drive. Internet (wifi and mobile internet) was limited, which was a disadvantage for some of us. The property manager was really nice and helpful, although we were asked to pay some extra charges which were not agreed upon and comminicated in advance, such as extra cleaning and removal of waste. One or two additional parasols would be good as there was only one during our stay.

The old owners response:

Dear Jason and Melanie,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. I am sorry that it was not a positive one, and I sincerely regret any negative feelings you may have experienced. We want to make sure all our guests have a relaxing, enjoyable time at Trullove.

We rent our villa since 2014, we had 24 very positive reviews, never a negative one!

We were delighted to learn that both the villa, its location and the pool have been to your satisfaction. But you complain of the fact that most of the shine was taken off by imperfect communications/arrangements with owners/managers. The thing is that prior to your arrival we had to send you three reminders as we did not get any response to our proposals for rooms occupation. And as to the communications skills of our manager it may suffice to quote from a review by Derek Rippe, a lovely tenant who rented the villa a week before you and who was extremely delighted about the way he was being treated during his stay :

"The property owners were exceptionally warm and helpful in arranging our stay in the days leading up to the trip and their complimentary gifts of wine and local guides were as thoughtful as they were classy. I would also like to mention the property manager Lucia who was exceptional in her communications to the group and in making our stay comfortable. She is one in a million! Our stay at this property could truly not have been more magical and the memories we made that week will definitely have us making this an annual holiday! Thank you so much for having us!"

We apologize for the fact that the barbecue was not immediately available the day you arrived and understand how this would be upsetting. But know that this situation was an exception and that we did everything possible to remedy this. The barbecue had apparently been broken by the previous tenants. That is the reason why we ask our customers for a security deposit that would be withheld for any damages incurred during their stay. The previous tenants did not tell us about the broken barbecue. As shops were closed because of Ferragosto, a public holiday celebrated on August 15th in all of Italy. Nonetheless, immediately, the day after we found out the BBQ was broken (so, not quite a struggle!!!!) the house manageress managed to get a brand-new barbecue for you from a befriended retailer of hers who exceptionally opened his shop and sold us a new barbecue.

As to the umbrellas : they were checked before your arrival and the table tennis bats and net had been replaced by new ones end of June.

You also refer to apparently unsafe "edging" near the pool. We assume that you refer to a small broken segment of 5 cm of the border stones covering the water discharge of the infinity pool. Five centimeter out of a total border stone circumference of 52 meter that made you feel unsafe and spoilt your enjoyment!!!! Truly, Jason and Melanie, I can't shake off the feeling that your complaints are rather unfair and prejudicial.

This stone has been replaced the week after Ferragosto.

Although your party left the house in a very dirty state (the cleaning ladies had to clean an extra 2 hours after your departure), we immediately paid back the full amount of the security deposit of 1500 euros.

We can't help if your bank withheld 80 euros from the transfer. This is beyond our control. Blame on Boris Johnson or on Brexit, not on us.

Additional deposits, NO, there were no additional deposits.

The security deposit is paid partly to VRBO and partly to us.

On the voucher that you signed and sent back to us it it clearly indicates that we ask a small deposit for the garbage and the bbq. If you bring the garbage yourself to the container park and if you leave the bbq behind in a clean state, then you get these small deposits back. We paid these deposits back.

Please note the property is under new ownership from 2023 and with a new name too. It has been repainted inside, new linen purchased, the pool repaired, 2 umbrellas purchased along with a shiny new, big gas BBQ.

Please note under new owners there are no extra charges to pay. The price we quote is the price you pay. New umbrellas were purchased in June 2023
Happy Holiday

It was amazing to stay in a trulli villa after seeing many trulli on the way there. It was very comfortable and well kept. The large infinity pool was amazing with a very safe shallow end for children. All our meals were at the huge outdoor stone table provided with shade at lunch time and outdoor lights for the evenings. The villa is a distance from other properties so the only noise was our own. The main trulli town of Alberobello is not far and the closer Martina Franca has a good supermarket for restocking once the generous amount of food and drink provided was all gone. We managed a day by the seaside to the north too.

Beautiful Amazing Villa

The villa is perfectly located - in the countryside, with no distraction, but only 15-20 mins drive away from two picturesque towns in the heart of Puglia. The rooms were spotless, well furnished, and spacious and the whole place could comfortably accommodate 14 people. From the moment we arrived, you could tell the owners had put a lot of thought into making the villa as comfortable as possible - complimentary wine and bread, bottles of water to save us going to the supermarket on our first night, and lots of books (including their own on Puglia). The swimming pool was exceptional - a beautifully-lit, large infinity pool that couldn't have been any better,

This is a lovely villa with charm and character and a stunning pool and lovely surrounding countryside. It's very quiet and relaxed.

Unforgetable family holiday

My family (15 persons from 3 to 83), and I stayed in Trullove for one week in October. As soon as we arrived, we felt like at home thanks to Zora. Enough space and privacy for everyone. An amazing swimming pool, a full equiped kitchen, surrounded of olive trees ... space, nature, freedom, nothing was missing ... A definitly recommended address for big group/family

Hardy MOct 2015
Wonderful spot

We stayed for a week with 4 adults and 6 kids and had an amazing time. There was lots of exploring on foot for the kids - even go to see the grapes being harvested next door. The pool is absolutely beautiful - in pristine shape. Another highlight (for the kids especially) is the rooftop where they spent hours climbing and playing. Very comfortable interior design and a highly functional kitchen. Fast wifi. The house manager arranged for a chef to cook our anniversary dinner which was lovely. Also a nice vegetable and spice garden we availed ourselves of. Otherwise we had fantastic meals everywhere we went. Martina Franca is both a destination in itself and a nice nearby town to enjoy restaurants/cafes/walks and take care of errands. We will definitely be back to Puglia.

Eric SSep 2015
Most Amazing Holiday

I planned a three week holiday with my friends and the last week was at this magnificant villa in Puglia. The swimming pool provided fantastic entertainment for all, both young and old. The heat provided the perfect excuse to stay in the pool untill midnight on one or two occasions. We were a party of 13 with 6 kids and had more than enough space to have some privacy when needed. The villa is located very close to Martina Franca and perfectly situated close to many of the most amazing towns. August was the perfect time to go as there were festivals in Lecce, Ostuni and Alberobella. The vibe in each of these towns with lights and live music was amazing and only a short drive from the villa. For the keen beach goers it was an easy drive to spend some days on the beach before we headed out to the towns at night. The large pool and big table under the shade provided a perfect setting for those days we decided to linger at the villa. I celebrated my 40th birthday just before arriving and having mentioned this to Lu (owner) who promptly surprised me with proseco and birthday cake. What an amazing special thing to do. We will definitly go back!!

Puglia at its best

Quiet location, stylish interiors and if you want to unwind in authentic surroundings, this Trulli is the place to stay. The layout is well designed to provide privacy for everyone. The buildings were tastefully refurbished. The kitchen is large and very well equipped with all the necessities. There is even a wonderful herb and vegetable garden that the owners allowed us to use. The tomatoes were plentiful and delicious! A huge swimming pool with sun loungers is neatly situated at the back of the villa. A washing machine, table tennis and barbecue were welcome additions as we spent a lot of time at the Trulli, the outside dining table was perfectly located between the kitchen and the swimming pool. The nearest town is Martina Franca and is absolutely delightful. There is no shortage of restaurants to visit and a local supermarket is nearby. We would recommend this Trulli to those wanting to experience the heart of Puglia and enjoy authentic surroundings. A Big thank you to Zoha the house representative in Puglia who was always available to help !!

Heavenly Country Retreat

Trullove is more than a private resort in the middle of fields of ancient rocks and olive tree groves. It is more than bright stars with air that is soft and clear. It is very much a private estate/home lovingly created and designed by Eric and Lu, who have become our very good friends. The property is a miracle. It is ancient trulli, that Eric and Lu has carefully renovated, according to Italian law to preserve its historic integrity while creating a space that is beautiful, modern, and extremely comfortable. I loved the rich meditation colors used in what we called the "honeymoon cottage." The property is large enough that we were able to enjoy a 17-day vacation with our entire family, which numbered between 8 and 16 at any given time. The modern kitchen and great room allowed us to spend a lot of time together while at the same time gave us privacy and freedom to "do our own thing." This is important when you have guests aged between 5 and 81. This would also be an amazing place for a business retreat. Zohar, the caretaker, was really friendly and gave wonderful advice on how to spend our days. Eric has written a travel book on Puglia which we kept by our side and constantly referred to. During the day we walked the streets of many nearby villages, shopped in open-air markets, and took home fresh seafood to prepare in the beautifully appointed kitchen at Trullove. Though a bit of a drive, don't miss Matera and Lecce. We usually ate dinner at Trullove, having purchased our foods at the markets and grocery stores at Ceglie Messapica or Martina Franca. Our hosts were very generous and fully stocked each fridge with very nice wines, which we enjoyed very much. For Americans, it is important to understand that the pace of life is very different in Puglia. Best shopping and visiting takes place early in the morning and then late afternoon. The towns sleep between noon and 4. Do your sight seeing while the locals are up and around. Otherwise, you can miss meeting some of the friendliest people. Also, make sure you reserve a couple of days to stay at Trullove to enjoy the huge Olympic sized infinity pool. We also enjoyed eating the prickly pears, picking tomatoes, cooking on the barbeque and eating at the amazing outdoor marble slab table. We miss Puglia and Trullove, a beautiful experience. We highly recommend this paradise and hope to return someday.

Villages of townlets

We (a group of 6 friends) spent an unforgettable week at Trullove at the end of September this year (2014). The site is located on top of a (small) mountain, isolated but yet not far from 2 historical villages. There is nothing that could surpass its atmosphere : a complex with the picturesque and comfortable trulli cone house - houses typical of the whole valley and region (Unesco heritage) - in the midst of a wealth of flowers, fruit and olive trees and located right in the heart of Puglia, a region rich with history. Not only did we enjoy the peace and quiet of this location but we also stretched our legs making a few cycling trips. Either we went on one of the signposted cycle routes (Alberobello, Locorotondo, Cisternino), or we ventured on routes we had mapped ourselves. On our return to 'our Trullove home' a dip in the large swimming pool was always our reward. As we were on holiday we preferred eating out (though the kitchenettes in our trulli houses were excellently equipped). Within reasonable driving distance there are plenty of not at all expensive but still classy restaurants with honest food, typical of the region.

Gorgeous Trulli

We spent a wonderful week at the trulli in August. The grounds and pool are simply stunning. The house, with its trulli cones and beautiful stone walls is remarkably spacious. We created some delicious meals with the produce we bought at the local markets and ate al fresco at the stone table outside. Perfect! The caretaker, Zohar, is friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

Paradise on Earth

We were a group of 16, staying in Trullove in August 2012 and August 2013. 16 People means 4 families with kids from 1 to 16. What can I tell: It was like 'Paradise on Earth'. The house, the pool, the surrounding... A lovely swim in the morning - then cycling (yes we brought our bikes!) with the kids to the mini-market at the fuel-station for a 1st coffee, getting lovely buns for the breakfast at the huge stone table in front of the house. Then you could decide: Stay at home (And we felt like home!) and spend a relaxing day at the magnificent pool or discover all the beautiful towns in the neighborhood. We went cycling (find the way along acquedotto Pugliese!) went to the Adriatic beaches near Ostuni and Monopoli or Pulsano on the Ionian Sea. Martina Franca, Ceglie, Ostuni... so many lovely towns to visit, Don't forget to go to Bari, Lecce or Matera... There are many good restaurants in the area - so no problem if you don't want to cook. But it was the house that made us feel like home: A perfect kitchen with everything to need for preparing a dinner for 16!. Everything was tidy and clean and decorated with love. The place is large enough to give enough privacy for everyone but you have inside and outside the opportunity to sit and eat together. One night we had our personal chef preparing a fantastic dinner. So lt was like paradise on earth. And what you can feel: It is not like staying in a hotel or ordinary holiday home. It is the home of Lu and Eric and they share it with you. We can highly recommend the place and will definitely come again.

Maison et annexes

Très belle maison typique de la région avec son immense piscine Nous étions 17 et avions tout l'espace nécessaire pour les repas et les loisirs. Les studios permettent à ceux qui le souhaitent d être indépendants, parfait pour des ados par ex

Séjour parfait !

Nous avons séjourné dans cette maison 2 semaines à 3 familles avec 12 personnes au total. Tout s'est très bien déroulé. Avant notre départ, les propriétaires ont répondu à toutes mes questions et accueil sur place par Lucia qui est restée à disposition durant les 2 semaines pour des conseils touristiques et de bonnes adresses. Elle a été aux petits soin avec nous ! La maison est comme sur les photos. Suffisamment spacieuse pour le groupe avec des espaces privatifs très appréciés également. Equipement de la cuisine comme à la maison. Piscine très grande avec une température agréable avec transats et parasols. La maison est sécurisée ce qui est agréable quand on est à l'écart. Franchement rien à redire ! la région est magnifique, je vous recommande cette location.

Great House

Very nice house for a group of friends. The bed are nice and the swimming pool is very very big. The house is also well equipped to cook. Perfect stay ! FYI : there are 8 rooms but one room is for 3 and one room is for one. We were 8 couples so it was not very convenient. Just be aware of it.

das Beeindruckendste war der riesige Pool, aber auch sonst super Austattung, sehr gepflegt, haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt einziges Manko etwas weite Wege zum Einkaufen
