Discovered this trulli B&B 5 years ago and we have returned every year since. We travel all over Puglia and Calabria and this is one of our 2 top favorites that we would never miss. We have become good friends with Franco, Elvira and their children. The novelty of this being a trulli b&B wore off and we just keep... More

Wonderful situation, lovely place to stay. Nice trullo. Beautiful swimming pool. Excellent and delicious breakfast with a lot of choices. Friendly hosts. Close to delicious restaurants. Beds are not very comfortable. It's a pity because everything else is just great except the beds.

I recently stayed here with my partner this July. I cannot recommend it enough; it is in a great location which means that you are a short drive to everywhere you want to go, the building has been beautifully restored and has been well furnished, as well as there being a great pool to cool down after a day out...

We had a perfect stay at this b&b. Nice Trullo-room, great breakfast, beautifull garden and pool, quiet surroundings and perfect location for trips to all the major tourist attractions in the region. Franco, Elvira and their two kids made our stay even more perfect with their friendly and helpfull attitude. More than recommended!

We stayed 3 nights and four days in late May in and around Cisternino and Putignano. The accomodation and hospitality were superb ! Franco and Elvira are the perfect B&B hosts, and the Trulli accomodation authentic and a relaxed atmosphere. The breakfast served near the pool, was a treat; fresh, home-made and delicious ! Grazie mille ! Roberto and Andie... More

As a military couple living in Naples, Italy, we were thrilled to hop into the car and drive some place serene and beautiful...and we found it right here. We stayed for 1 night in early July 2013, and wish so much that we didn't have to leave so soon. Our brother was visiting with us on this trip to the... More

We found Antica Aia through tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. The trulli (5 in total of various sizes) are spotlessly clean and recently renovated. There were five of us including 3 kids and even though we had one bathroom we managed just fine. Our trullo sovereign also had a little kitchen which was perfect. Elvira (the owner) cleaned every...

Our friends live in Cisternino and this is our third time back. This time we were her for a wedding. We didn't know anything about Antica Aia but compared to other B&B's and hotels in the area we liked the look of this. We were here for 7 days and everyday my husband woke up saying "good choice" we just... More

This B&B is one of my favourites. It was wonderful to wake up to a delicious breakfast delivered to our gorgeous verandah. We loved the homemade croissants and torta. It was great staying in a trullo. There was a l lovely hammock to relax and a pool with amazing views. The hosts were very friendly and helpful with places to... More
