This is our third trip to antica aia. We have become good friends with Franco, Elvira and their two kids. Accommodation here is in totally rebuilt trullis and the interior is ad modern as any hotel. What mskes this place so great is the location and the hosts. Located on small hilltop, you overlook the town of Casalini. There always... 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

I stayed here for 5 days last week on buisness and enjoyed it emensily! The hosts were amazing, assisted me by printing out documents and sending fax's for me and could not have been more helpful! They welcomed my four legged friend with open arms and made our stay very comfortable. I read one of the other reviewers mentioned the... More

For our third stay in Puglia, I finally wanted to explore the Trulli area and found that the experience would be complete, especially for the kids, if we stayed in a trullo too. That's why I chose this B&B over some others in the area, and over some hotels that were even less expensive. First, I was somewhat disappointed when... More

Francesco and Elvira are wonderful hosts and serve a delicious breakfast. The trulli accommodation is wonderful - there are only 5 trulli therefore it never feels crowded, particularly as you have your own outside space with chairs and a table. The trulli have been carefully restored to a high standard with free wifi. Views from the pool across the olive... More

Francesco and Elvira made our stay absolutely perfect, the breakfasts were delicious and our trulli was beautiful. There are about 5 trullis, each with their own outside space to relax in, which was really lovely as we used the facilities in the trulli to make dinner a few nights and sat outside. Everything is immaculate, Francesco works non-stop and even... More
