My boyfriend and I stayed at Trulli Il Castagno the 2nd week of September. The property was really well cared for and just had so many loving touches. Giorgio spoke pretty solid English and was very nice and helpful. We took advantage of the breakfast service (3 Euro per person per day) which consisted of pastries and fruit from the property. We also took the cooking class and had 2 dinners at the property with other guests and the family at the property, which were lovely. The pool was clean and refreshing and is where we spent most of our time after a whirlwind week in Rome. The area itself was not touristy at all. Very few people spoke English (and unfortunately we speak almost no Italian) however everyone was very nice and helpful. We went to a Festival near the trulli where we were able to get local food, music, and fireworks. We also went to Mangio Bene - a farm that was part of an agriturisimo group where we got cheeses and meat. There is also a mini mart nearby. Locorotondo had some very large supermarkets, a pharmacy, etc... We also visted Vini Semeraro in Cisternino to do wine tasting and a tour of the wine tasting facility. Unfortunately the last night of our trip landed us in the Valle D'Itria hospital which was about 15 mintues from the property as I had come down with a severely painful bladder infection. Again, no english... but we managed to get my symptoms across and after an antibiotic shot and IV painkiller (free by the way!) I was almost as good as new. I would have no hesitation recommending this property to anyone. If we find a way to make it back to the area I will no doubt book here again. Excellent!
