We stayed 3 nights at the Isola Felice, it was just great. The owners, Angela and Bartolo are very nice and helpful. The place is just right for traveling around Pullia, very center to all places. We had the chance to have a cooking lesson given by Angela & Bartolo. After the lesson we had the meal together (it's getting... More

We only stayed one night but the place is charming. L'Isola Felice and Trulli Sotto Le Stelle are actually two different locations, we stayed at the Trulli. Apart from the fact that you are sleeping in an authentic location, the place itself is clean and comfortable. Own transport is a must. We stayed with children and took over both Trulli... More

We arrived, late at night in the dark and could not find the B and B, Angela the owner came out in her car and found us, which was a great relief! We were then very tired and hungry, having travelled for 14 hours, so she very kindly drove off into the night and brought us back a bottle of... More

Very unfriendly management, no way to drink a cup of tea during the night because the owner lock the doors of the kitchen. Good location, clean environment. Always ask for the invoice and not pay in advance. Poor quality of home made products as wine, olives in brine. Better buy in different locations.

L'Isola Felice is beautifully situated right outside the town, very peaceful and idyllic, a satnav to find it is a good idea, especially at night! The Trulii is very pretty, with a lovely bathroom and a good firm bed. There is a good heater and we were very comfortable even in February. The breakfast was enormous and varied with local... More

Great place to stay. Angela and her husband were greats hosts. Angela serves a breakfast that would satisfy anyone. Abundant and tasty. Staying in a Trulli home was such an experience that we, thanks to Angela, extended our stay. Quiet , relaxing, comfortable and yet convient to local restaurants and attractions. NO complaints what so ever. Met a great couple... More

This place is in a nice location, lovely trulli accomodation and swimming pool. However, this pool is used by all the owner's son's friends and their parents and becomes a public pool in the afternoon. At least 15 young kids can be swimming and screaming which prevents customers to rest and swim. Furthermore the breakfast is awful : bad quality... More

This B&B has the option of staying in the architectural Trulli of the region . . . however, they were booked during our stay and we were in the main house near the pool.
