Property description

Trullo Patrizia is a 300 year old trullo - a romantic Southern Italian stone farmhouse - renovation was completed and a fantastic pool (12M x 6M) installed in December 2005.

Unlike many other recently renovated properties, Patrizia has not been extended with modern extensions and is completely original.
We have furnished Patrizia with traditional local furniture and avoided spoiling the atmosphere with a modern chic look!

The trullo is set in its own private 5 acres of olive, walnut, fig and cherry trees, on top of a hill, in a beautiful, unspoilt rural
location near Alberobello, Puglia.
It has two double bedrooms with ensuite shower rooms, and one bedroom with double sofa-bed and ensuite toilet/basin (a cot is available on request).

The pool is open from mid-May to September - and longer if weather permits.

You can fly into Bari or Brindisi airports - both an hours drive.
Both Bari and Brindisi are small provincial airports so collecting your luggage and car is quick and easy.

Our Italian property managers, Donatella and Antonio, are also good friends.
They are both fluent in several languages, have a long experience in tourism, and Donatella is a great cook.
Besides locally assisting our clients, they can also provide some extra services, like:

1) Cookery lessons (with two weeks advanced booking)
2) A range of produce such as organic extra-virgin olive oil, home-made cheese, fresh pastas, breads, marmalades, local sweets and various preserves!

So what is a trullo?
A trullo (plural trulli) is an ancient stone building, peculiar to Puglia and particularly the area surrounding the town of Alberobello.
They are dry-stone laid, using local limestone with conical roofs, and are reputed to have been created by local farmers to avoid tax in that they could easily be pulled down on a visit from the tax inspector.
However, when you see a trullo you would see why this is an unlikely story - the walls can be six feet thick!
The family would typically live in the main trullo, with a fire place/oven and storage on a wooden floor overhead in the cone.
Animals or produce would be kept in adjoining trulli or a stone lamia (extension).

No two are the same, as although they were built to a similar design, with one or more cones formed over a double wall of stone, they are built across the undulating countryside according to the local conditions and requirements.
Some are whitewashed and some have mystical signs painted on the roofs.
Trulli are very cool in the Summer due to the thick stone construction

Puglia is the 'heel' of Italy, the South-East peninsula reaching out into the Adriatic and Ionian seas.
The area is very rural and traditional, and is regarded as the 'garden of Italy'.
Most of the countrys wine and much of the worlds olive oil is produced here, along with oranges, lemons, cherries, and countless other fruit, nuts, vegetables, wheat and a whole range of other agricultural produce. And one should not fail to mention the rich variety of seafood available in local markets and restaurants.

The world famous Italian cuisine (as captured recently in the series by Jamie Oliver) is available in abundance and surprisingly cheaply, thanks to the wealth of produce.
It also helps that the holidaymakers from Western Europe have not yet arrived, with prices to suit!

The locals are very laid-back and friendly. In combination with hot summer sun, over 500 miles of unspoilt sandy beaches and coastline, and a generous sprinkling of mediaeval towns, villages, churches and castles, this makes for a very popular holiday destination, especially with the Italians.

Holidaying here is only just catching on with the British, due to the introduction in the last 18 months of direct daily flights by Ryanair to the regional airports of Bari and Brindisi, and twice weekly flights by British Airways to Bari.

There are numerous sites of cultural and archaeological interest, which reflects in the styles and designs of the villages, towns and cities of the region.

History and Places to Visit
The Romans, Goths, Lombards, Byzantines, Saracens, Normans, the Crusaders, French, Greeks and Spanish have all had ownership of Puglia at some point in time, and left a mark on the region.
The whitewashed buildings and towns, with narrow alleys and flights of steps that are more reminiscent of those in Greece
There are magnificent cathedrals, castles (the octagonal 11th Century Castel Del Monte of Frederick II, Baris 13th Century Swabian Castle) and cities with Baroque influences. The Roman amphitheatre in Lecce of 1st Centrury BC is one of the oldest remaining.

Places to Visit
Alberobello - the focal point for the trulli! Alberobello boasts the greatest number of trulli in one place, with around 1,500 nestling in the cobbled streets around the gentle hills on which the town is built.
Trulli are protected by the World Heritage Organisation. Those in Alberobello have been lived in for several hundred years up to today.
There are many shops, restaurants, a church and even hotels to be found in trulli in the town.

Brindisi - a bustling modern port, home to the 15th Century Aragones Castle and some medieval and Baroque churches. Daily ferries to Greece, Turkey and Albania.

Castellana Grotto - the largest cave complex in Italy, with dazzling white walls of pure crystals.

Ceglie Mesapica - an ancient Messapian centre lies in the old town.

Cisternino - with a pretty old town, typical of the area.

Gallipoli - (from the Greek kalli poli, meaning beautiful city) with a Byzantine castle, a Baroque cathedral and an ancient Greek fountain.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Alan & Carole Pearson fell in love with Trullo Patrizia at first site - though it looked a little different to how it looks today!

Why the Owner Chose Alberobello:
We fell in love with Italy and trulli years ago. The trulli are unique to Puglia and so you cannot buy anything that looks like this anywhere else in the world!

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Trullo Patrizia is unique - a beautiful renovation of a six coned trullo which stands on two levels, connected by a spiral staircase. This is a home from home and is totally private and secluded yet close to all the amenities Patrizia has not been added to with addition of modern buildings like many trulli, which spoils the character of the property, The position of the property is rural yet only three miles from Alberobello. There are no other buildings nearby and the atmosphere is quiet and tranquil. During the day, the only visitors are the birds flying acrobatically over the pool and at night the bats do the same thing! If you want to get away from it all, this is the place!
