A unique experience forever in your heart!

  • 5 of 5

Dormire in trullo é un'esperienza davvero unica che vi riconcilierà con voi stessi:per questo é stata paragonata al confort del ventre materno. Il fresco naturale del trullo é una panacea per chi non sopporta l'aria condizionata. Trullo Antico é un bellissimo e confortevole trullo nel cuore della Val d'Itria, posizione tranquilla e allo stesso tempo strategica per visitare le piu' note Alberobello, Locorotondo, Matera oltre alle cale da sogno di Monopoli e Polignano a Mare.

Ideale per vacanze in famiglia o in gruppo, qui troverete tutto ciò che occorre per una vacanza in totale relax. Il proprietario Carmelo, sempre disponibile, vi coccolerà dando riscontro ad ogni necessità.

Grazie di tutto Carmelo! A presto!

We were a party of 5 and Trullo Antico was absolutely perfect for us. The location was great in a very quiet location which we wanted and the pool was fabulous to come home to on a hot sunny afternoon. The trullo was spotlessly clean and the "welcome pack" very good. Great wine. Thanks.

The owner, Carmelo was great and he entertained us Australians with tales of his recent trip to our great country. He loved Australia, so do we, but we also loved Puglia.

Would highly recommend Trullo Antico to all travellers . Loved it.

Cheers, Aussie 4 and "wife".

Trullo haven of tranquility

  • 5 of 5

The Trullo was full of character, clean, comfortable and with a beautiful pool. Carmelo was very helpful and welcoming. I would recommend this property and the location just near Alborobello. We particularly liked Locorotondo.

The Valle d'Itria

Trulli, gently rolling countryside, olive oil, white wine, capocollo ham, easy access to the beaches of the Adriatic and the Ionian seas and half a dozen really super, picuresque towns, including Locorotondo, Martina Franca, Cisternino, Ostuni, Ceglie Messapica and the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Alberobello... Welcome to the Valle d'Itria, one of Puglia's most popular and attractive areas!

Set on a high fertile plain in the centre of Puglia, the Valle d'Itria stretches from Putignano in the north to Ostuni in the south, its wooded slopes, vineyards and endless olive groves punctuated by the coned roofs of trulli, those unique cylindrical constructions that are peculiar to the area.

The valley in Valle d'Itria's name is not a a typical valley but rather a Karstic depression that runs between Locorotondo, Cisternino and Martina Franca. This geological phenomenon has also created the fascinatingly beautiful caves of Castellana Grotta, which run for about 3km under the north-eastern edge of the Valle d'Itria.

The caves of Castellana Grotta offer an excellent, educational and fun day trip with children and there are many more diverting activities for children in the area, including the zoo safari and amusement park at Fasano and the magical old town centre of Alberobello, a trulli wonderland that charms and delights old and young alike.

Thanks to Puglia's long slender shape, even if you are in the centre of the Valle d'Itria you are never far from the sea... or should we say seas! An easy drive in either direction - your choice... east or west - will take you to the Adriatic or the Ionian sea, where you can enjoy the long sandy beaches and turquoise waters that contribute to Puglia's great popularity as a holiday destination.

Food lovers too will not be left wanting! Each town in the Valle d'Itria seems to have its own speciality, whether it is the capocollo ham of Martina Franca, the meat bombette of Cisternino (barbecued directly by the butcher for you) or the DOC white wine of Locorotondo. Of course the olive oil is supreme and the cheeses, including the milky delights of burratina, are memorable!

It seems obvious, then, that the Valle d'Itria offers a full and various range of holiday activities for all the family. So why not make it your next destination? Of course, you'll need some fabulous accommodation... and that's what we're here for!
