About Trulli dei Carrubi

We are a young family living in Switzerland. Both my wife and I are Italian from Milan and Tuscany respectively. However my parents and both their families are coming from the beautiful area where our Trullo House is located: Cisternino. We have therefore decided to own this beautiful holiday house in Valle D'Itria (Trulli's valley). We have restored it with a lot of attention to details, making sure that it could maintain the original architecture typical of this area (locally caved stones are used to shape cones, each of them hosting a room) but also being very comfortable for our today's needs (such as air conditioning, underfloor heating, swimming pool, etc.). We truly hope you can enjoy your stay there as much as we do every year.

Trulli dei Carrubi purchased this villa in 1949

Why Trulli dei Carrubi chose Cisternino

The property is a family heritage fully restored. The renovation works lasted for more than 3 years and finished in 2009.

We love the peace and silence that you can enjoy while reading books or sunbathing nearby the swimming pool.

The kids love the Pool. They can spend easily all day in the water...

The area is very nice and from Trulli dei Carrubi you have the possibility to do very interesting excursions.

Such as Alberobello (Trulli's town), Castellana Grotte (biggest and most spectacular natural caves with stalactites and stalagmites), Ostuni (the white town "Città Bianca"), Martina Franca and Locorotondo (famous for its wine).

Also we like to go back at time to Matera (the stone’s city, "Città dei Sassi"). Here Mel Gibson starred "The Passion of the Christ".

What makes this villa unique

We like to visit the street market every Monday in Cisternino (2km), having relaxed breakfast on our terrace or in the town ("Latteria" bar or "Bar Vignola" where you also have free WiFi access to check the news or your social networks).

Having fantastic food and wine for dinner is one of our preferred activity when we are there. Meat, fish, Pizza and Pasta along with red, white and rosè wines are fantastic and very affordable in the area. We can recommend a few...

We also like horse riding on the beach and in the country side between secular olive and oak trees.

One thing all visitors mention in the "Guests Book" is the beauty of the outside area and in particular the mosaic tiled infinite edge pool.

We hope you will enjoy as well.

Beautiful Trulli close to the town of Cisternino with magnificent pool

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at this lovely property we struggled to leave it to explore the other areas around. The pool area was such a wonderful place to spend time in the gentle sun, dipping in out of the pool, we enjoyed it even more than the nearby beaches. Conveniently close to Cisternino (2ks), a lovely cobbled street town with ample eating opportunities but also a short drive to other interesting Puglia towns, the trulli was really well positioned. In quite a difficult place to find (with the help of the local agent) you must have a car to stay here. Fast response from the owner who was always contactable & provided lots of information & assistance when ever it was required. Great aircon, well equipped kitchen, wood fired bbq which was perfect for our evening of cooking bistecca I couldn't recommend this villa more highly.

Un luogo che incanta

  • 5 of 5

I Trulli dei Carrubi sorgono a pochi km da Cisternino con uno sguardo sulla vallata che mozza il fiato : l'occhio si perde tra ulivi e piccoli Trulli in lontananza. In un piano terrazzato a cui si accede grazie a pochi gradini una spettacolare piscina ,grande e pulitissima , contornata da una vegetazione curata e disposta con gusto. In ogni angolo si può godere di tranquillità e privacy .

i Trulli sono stati restaurati dai proprietari con grande cura dei particolari rispettando la tradizione e arricchendola di comodità moderne (aria condizionata e riscaldamento, televisione ,Wi-Fi, zanzariere ecc.)che non disturbano l'incanto degl'interni, molto ampi e ben organizzati ,;gli arredamenti delle stanze mantengono la linea pulita e allo stesso tempo rustica del luogo. Cucina fornita di ogni necessitá e per di più una griglia per l'esterno . I contatti con il proprietario sono stati facili e molto cordiali , l'accoglienza perfetta e ogni necessità nel luogo ha trovato una risposta premurosa. Abbiamo passato una settimana di sogno godendo della quiete della proprietá ma anche esplorando i dintorni Cisternino ,Locorotondo, Alberobello, sono paesi vicini di grande fascino e offrono ristoranti , boutiques, e "movida" serale con concerti e mostre d'arte.

Purtroppo la nostra permanenza , una settimana, non ci ha permesso di visitare tanti altri luoghi poco distanti dai Trulli ma ci rifaremo senz'altro in futuro.

We had the most wonderful time staying at this trulli: it has a simple and deliciously cool interior, which is equipped for comfort (and wi-fi) and is beautifully clean. The blockbuster feature has to be the spectacular private swimming pool, which is set against a lush rural backdrop. The pool is flanked by shady verandas, which are ideal for relaxing and al fresco dining. It's the perfect place to stay if you are thinking about exploring Puglia. Conveniently close to Cisternino, shops, and various wonderful eateries (Taverna de la Torre and Sant' Anna), it is also a comfortable car ride away from Alberobello, Ceglie Messapica, Locarotondo, Ostuni, Martina Franca and many more. It's also possible to take days trips to Matera and Lecce from here (recommended). If you love food, great architecture, and are not too keen on crowded touristy places, seriously consider coming here - especially perfect if you are thinking of travelling as a couple or with a small (and young) family. We're already thinking of coming back.

A glorious experience

  • 5 of 5

An amazing experience at this beautiful trulli. The accommodation is perfect and the grounds and pool are quite spectacular. You do need a car but it is located very close to Cisternino, the lovely local town. There is so much to see and do in the Puglia region. Stefano, the owner of the trulli was a great source of information with some superb restaurant recommendations. We would highly recommend a visit.

Bella Italia

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben zwei erholsame, ruhige und heisse Ferienwochen im schönen Apulien verbracht. Das liebevoll eingerichtete Trulli und die grosszügige Umgebung hat uns sehr gefallen. Der grosse Pool ist ein Highlight dieses Anwesens und mit viel Liebe zum Detail gestaltet. Die angrenzenden Städte sowie die Kultur und das gute Essen ist eine Reise wert.

Bis bald...

The popular hill towns of Ostuni, Martina Franca, Cisternino & Ceglie Messapica are all within a short drive away and are full of wonderful restaurants, bars & shops including locally produced ceramics, baskets and jewellery. The “Florence of the South”, Lecce is just 1 hours drive offering stunning Baroque architecture. Beaches on the Adriatic coast (both sandy or rocky) are less than half an hour drive, whilst the stunning sandy Ionian coast is just a little further towards the south. Known as the “garden of Italy” Puglia is renowned for it's local produce supplying the rest of Italy with fruit & vegetables. Local meat from the countryside & fish on the coast is highly regarded not forgetting the rich red wines of Salento & Manduria and crisp white wines from Locorotondo. Golf: There are 2 golf courses in the area; San Domenico Golf Course (18 hole) and Coccaro Golf Club (9 hole) close to the pretty fishing village of Savelletri, on the Adriatic coast.

We will be happy to give you more tips about place to see and restaurants upon your booking.
