To the left and right, a hallway on each side leads to three bedrooms and two shower rooms in each part. On one side, a double bedroom with en suite and a further double bedroom and study with single bed sharing a further shower room. The bedrooms are all of a good size with top quality beds and well-appointed shower rooms. Affording equal emphasis to al fresco living, the villa boasts a large shaded terrace for dining outside, with stylish seating.

If a building can be a symbol for a whole region, then the trullo stands for Puglia—also known as ‘Apulia’ in English. Think of a Puglia villa holiday and those round, whitewashed limestone buildings with their comical, conical roofs always spring to mind. But there’s more to the region that is the narrow heel of Italy’s boot than trullo country around Alberobello. Discover baroque beauty in Lecce, Emperor Frederick II’s mysterious architecture at the Castel del Monte, and total relaxation on a Puglia villa stay in a rural Masseria.
