A former farmhouse, ‘il Trulleto’ is now a charming country residence located in the heart of “Valle d’Itria”, or ‘trullishire’ , a peculiar Apulian setting at an elevation of 400m osl. Several interesting villages are scattered just few miles around like Alberobello, Unesco ‘Humanity World Heritage’, Locorotondo, among ‘The most beautiful Villages in Italy’ and Martina Franca, a small town appreciated for its Baroque style and aristocratic imprint, also hosting, between July and August, the renowned ‘Festival della Valle d’Itria’, an amazing event of opera and ancient music recitals.

 

 

 

 

The Trulleto is an old farmhouse composed of trulli and 'lamie' (former agricultural spaces) recently totally renovated by architects and master stone workers. Great attention has been paid in respect of the original architecture and special care in creating an interior full of charm and equipped with every comfort. We want our guests feel at ease as in their 'second home' : this was the common thread that we have followed from the beginning and now we are pleased to offer you.

 
 
       

The Trulleto is entirely immersed in nature, among oaks, cherry and olive trees, a location that ensures total privacy and tranquility to your stay. It will be nice to relax on your terrace surrounded by mediterranean flowers and spices, or basking by the pool after a refreshing swim or take advantage of the shadow under the branches of an secular olive tree. All around many places of great interest are waiting for your visit and many are the activities that you can play not far from 'il Trulleto': charming historic villages, fine crafts, gourmet wines and food and, non far away,  the  lights and colors of an incredible sea.

A few words about the 'trulli'

The entire area surrounding the 'Trulleto' is littered with these constructions of ancient and remote origin, unique in the world with their structure of large stones mounted 'dry' and drawn 'on site'. Trulli are further characterized by the typical conical roofs, decorated with pinnacles that bloom like flowers and decorated with mysterious cosmic symbols. The Trulleto is, indeed, 'a field of trulli' ...

The pleasures of the table ...

Discover the many excellent local food and wine experience will be rewarding for any gourmet. DOC wines, local dairy products and cereals, meat sausages, vegetable gardens and orchards all at 0 km. You will find a surprising synthesis of all that in the  menu of restaurants scattered in old towns and countryside: wherever  typical and 'family', and always careful in proposing traditional recipes. Typical of the offer: mixed starters, a small collection of local delicacies. A special word about 'bracerie' or 'stove ready' where grilled meat is chosen, prepared and served in spaces adjacent to the retail.

Not only country ...
 
I love the contryside, but the sea ... The sea? Just 25km from Trulleto, a half hour drive, north and south of Savelletri (Fasano) is waiting for you: stretch of beaches and cliffs lapped by the most beautiful in Italy, spectacular lights and colors. Everywhere you will find crystal clear  water, 'Blue Flag 2012': the only difficulty is choosing among the many many suggestions! A pleasant and easy alternative, an additional choice to diversify your vacation.

A Trulleto 'green'

Sample preservation and respected architectural originality, the Trulleto want to stand out for its strong eco-compatibility. Electricity and hot water supply is mostly provided by installations of solar panels, the heating  provided by a floor system with circulation of hot water at low temperature, thermal glass favors comfort in summer and winter. We optimized the original and ancient system of collecting rain water that is piped into a tank used for irrigation, fully automated to minimize water consumption. Not all land will be green in summer: not a contradiction but a conscious choice to save a precious commodity.
