About Jon Gourlay & Laura Lapadula
Trullo Falco is owned and run by Jon Gourlay and Laura Lapadula (husband and wife team). Both from Scotland, they met when Laura was nursing and Jon was a gardener at the local hospital. They both share a love of nature, and being outdoors particularly when the sun is shining with Jessie their Border Collie. Laura’s interests include restoring old items of furniture and interior design (which is evident around the Trullo), whilst Jon is a keen gardener, falconer and owner of Sisco his Harris Hawk.
Jon Gourlay & Laura Lapadula purchased this Villa in 2010
Why Jon Gourlay & Laura Lapadula chose Fasano
We initially bought the Trullo as a holiday home and future retirement option for ourselves in 2008. It was in a real mess at the time but we saw its potential and in particular, its peaceful setting, elevated views and great proximity to the local hilltop towns and beaches sold it to us. However, the attraction for buying in Puglia extended beyond the house. Laura’s father is Italian and from this region. As a child she travelled every summer from Scotland to Italy with her parents and 3 sisters (by car!) and has warm memories of spending family summer holidays there. She is therefore very familiar with the local area and customs. In the years that followed we used local tradesmen to carry out essential works on the house to make it comfortable for us to stay in and also started some restoration work to reveal the true beauty of the building such as revealing the original stone both inside and outside the Trullo and attached “Lamia” rooms (originally used for keeping cattle). We came out on holiday as often as we could, but on each occasion, we found it more and more difficult to leave. We use the term “holiday” loosely, as on each visit we spent cleaning up after various stages of work had been completed, and working on our garden and land which had become overgrown with years of no-one living there, as well as olive and fruit trees that desperately needed pruning and brought back to life. But to us it was still a holiday as it somehow brought us both back to nature, something that we are both passionate about. It was then we realised and made the decision to plan for a permanent move to Puglia. Our Trullo provided us with an opportunity of making this happen, so we contacted a local architect in 2015 to develop our Trullo as a luxury holiday rental.
What makes this Villa unique
The Trullo occupies an enviable south facing position, with elevated unbeatable countryside views overlooking a valley that meanders far to the west as far as you can see. Sunsets on the terraces are simply stunning set amidst an Olive grove that catches the last shards of light as the sun sets... pure bliss. No sounds of passing cars here!. Plus we have mains fresh drinkable water (just like back in the UK) a rare find in these parts.
