Helpful hosts, lovely location and lots of places to interesting visit.
Favourites were Matera, Alberobello and Polignano a Mare.
What a great find! Anna and Mimo met us upon arrival at sunset to give us a tour. Fresh lemon cake, traditional snacks ( taralli) and bottled water we’re supplied. They were always available for tour suggestions. The truilli was large and clean and the grounds were a great place to explore with all the fruit trees, cacti and olive trees. The covered outdoor pergola area was great for shade and the upper terrace has an amazing view for sunsets. So much close by to explore in Puglia. We loved it!!!!!
My wife and I spent a 4 days at this amazing Trullo. The location is great for taking day trips to neighboring towns like Alberobello, Matera, Bari, Otranto etc
Anna and her husband Mimmo were very hospitable and were there for us when we needed anything.
The property was very well maintained and we even picked fresh cherries 🍒� off their trees each day.
Will be back again for sure. Thank You 🙏�🏻�♥️🇮�🇹�
A perfect place to unwind
This was a lovely setting with fantastic hosts, who made every effort to greet us and to say goodbye. The grounds are stunning (we were there in mid-May so much was in flower) and there was so much space and flexibility to enjoy the various locations around the trulli: we were encouraged to eat the cherries when ripe and later in the year, almonds and olives can be picked from the trees too! We could have been more fortunate with the weather, which meant that we couldn't quite enjoy the outside space as much as we might have wished, but the charm of the trulli, the rural location and the excellent location in the Valle d'Itria (and the information available in the house) gave us plenty to enjoy, a relaxing setting and much to see.
We feel ever so slightly ungenerous about giving a four-star review, but there were a couple of things that could improve the facilities. One of these was having an oven to use to cook things in; the other was the rather odd collection of cooking implements and items available: a brief trip to IKEA would be an easy solution to provide sharp knives, a proper chopping board and a few other kitchen basics.
Five stars for the hosts and their loving attention on this place to stay; five stars for the beautiful and well-kept location, especially outside; and four for the small but important matter of the kitchen.
Thank you for a wonderful week.
Really enjoyable stay, in a lovely Trulli, with panoramic views
We were welcomed by the whole family, even though we arrived late at night, and they took the time showing us around the property, along with giving plenty of suggestions for places to visit during our stay.
We loved i Trulli dell'Abate to bits!
The building is welcoming, cosy and finished to the highest possible standard, and the sunset from the rooftop is just something else!
We were lucky to enjoy really warm weather, and we took advantage of it to explore the Itria valley and the seaside.
Anna and Mimmo are fantastic hosts and welcomed us with lemon cake and focaccia!
We did arrive as guests but truly (forgive the pun!) left as friends!
In a splendid hilly position between the territories of Villa Castelli, Martina Franca and Ceglie Messapica, there are the Trulli dell’Abate. Wonderful trulli with 7 cones, immersed in the magical silence of the countryside, renovated to offer a holiday in simplicity and genuine flavors, far from the hectic pace of everyday life, but close to nature, culture and tradition.
The Trulli dell’Abate, surrounded by olive trees, offer maximum relaxation, can accommodate up to 4 guests. The exterior is nicely set up and includes a large courtyard, a barbecue area, an oven, a small vegetable garden, a terrace to enjoy tea while admiring the vast panorama of the Murgia and enjoying fantastic sunsets.
Ideal for those who love taking long walks in the countryside, being close to places of natural beauty of note such as:
the "Facsquata" Wood, the Thrushes Wood, the Montescotano Caves, the "Facsquata" Caves, the Cook's Caves, the "Facsquata" Mirror. Furthermore, the cycling route of the Apulian aqueduct is just 3 km away.
The trulli are located in a privileged position, surrounded by the following cities:
Villa Castelli, a pretty town with many traditions, called the balcony of the high Salento, crossed by Gravina, the botanical forest of the town (3 Km);
Grottaglie, city of ceramics (10 Km.);
Martina Franca, city of the Itria Valley, a magnificent example of Baroque art (19 Km);
Cisternino and Locorotondo, with their characteristic historical centers (19 Km and 25 Km);
Ceglie Messapica, city of gastronomy (6 Km);
Ostuni, famous white city (18 Km);
Alberobello, capital of the trulli, since 1996 heritage of humanity and UNESCO (35 Km);
Adriatic and Ionian coast (25 km and 30 km)
Other places to visit less than an hour from the Trulli dell 'Abate: Lecce, Taranto, Porto Cesareo, Zoo Safari and Selva di Fasano, Polignano a mare, Castellana Grotte; as well as an hour and a half the magnificent cities of Otranto and Gallipoli, in short ours is a whole area to explore!
Furthermore, a few steps from the structure there is the possibility to taste the typical dairy products of the nearby farm; and if you are a fan of popular music, it is not excluded that with your complicity, a serenade with accordion and tambourine will come as a surprise to make your holiday even more traditional and refined.
