'We have rented using VRBO in many countries including Australia, U.K., France and Portugal to name but a few. The Trulli property is clearly our favorite and it was extremely difficult to leave.'

Our romantic trullo with pool & two lamia sits on a rural countryside hilltop in the Valle d'Itria amongst a grove of olive & almond trees, and is ideally placed for easy access (less than 10km) to Martina Franca, Ceglie, Cisternino & Ostuni. Ostuni's beaches are accessible in about 25 minutes by car. The property has 180-degree views of the surrounding hills and valleys, dotted with trulli, masseria and local vineyards -- where you can visit and taste the locally produced wines. Local amenities e.g. supermarket, restaurants, bars are only short drives (or bicycling!) away. Martina Franca hosts an internationally-reknowned music festival (13 July - 4 Aug '13) and the UNESCO World Heritage site, Alberobello, is a 15km drive passing through the beautiful city of Locorotondo.
