Access is through 200 meters of a dirt and bumpy road. Apart from that, everything is just perfect. Breakfast is otherwordly. Pool (a rarity for such a small structure) is a marvel, rooms nice and tidy. Owners are so nice and attentive. You are in the middle of nowhere but you feel at home and do not want to leave....

Nice family run B&B just outside of town. Quiet location in an olive grove and a lovely pool on the grounds. Breakfast was homemade items served by the couple. Be careful when selecting your room. If you want to stay in an actual trulli room, be aware that there are other rooms besides actual trulli accommodations.

Fontana Vecchia is a lovely place to stay in the Puglian countryside. We stayed in one of the Trulli houses which was comfortable and well equipped. The hosts are very friendly and helpful and as for the breakfasts- I have never experienced one like it. As well as local cheeses and hams there was frittata and home made cakes all... More

The hosts are passionate about showing the true meaning of making your stay a wonderful and relaxing one.Very good room cleaning facilities and the breakfast is to die for! The only drawback is that you have to give the coordinates to the GPS as the address is not... More

Fontana Vecchia is a lovely family run B&B. We stayed in a typical Trulli house. The house was nicely furnished with a kitchen and it's own back yard to sit outside. The sleek pool area is a nice place to be on a sunny afternoon. The breakfast was amazing with different things to try every morning. I'd definitely recommend the... More

We really enjoyed our stay in Fontana Vecchia. The trulli are set in a beautiful orchard where the the owners grow cherries, figs, vegetables and plenty of other goodies. Maria, Baggio and their son were really friendly, warm-hearted and welcoming. The room was lovely, with a nice bathroom and a comfy bed. It was quiet at night and we had... More

We enjoyed our trullo house room, but best of all, the hosts are very warm and welcoming. We will most certainly return and stay longer next time! It is a peaceful location surrounded by beautiful landscape.

In the midst of olive groves and orchards you find this wonderful building converted from the traditional stone-built Truli. It is only a small place so it is nice and quiet. It has a wonderful pool and a good place to relax. The owners are very friendly and helpful and the breakfasts they serve are stunning. They were very happy... More

A wonderful B&B situed in the countryside. If you need some rest in a peaceful spot or if you want to visit the beautiful valley of Itria; this is the place to stay. The owners Maria, Bagio and Vincenzo will take good care of you and provide a delicious breakfast. The rooms and trulli are decorated with great taste and... More

It was one of the best accommodation choices we made during our 20days in Italy. The owner couple and their grown son made us feel so comfortable despite the language barrier (we didn't speak much Italian.. sorry!!) and we chit-chatted for hours in their dining room before being shown our room when we checked in. They are so nice and... More
