“Perfect family retreat”
Reviewed March 8, 2013 for a stay in July 2012

Stayed in Trullo della Luna one week in July 2012 during a three week stay in Puglia. The Trullo is very vell maintained, with a beautiful pool outside. Very private and quiet. No disturbing noise from traffic or anything else. The Trullo is perfect for a family of four, but I would not recommend more people as it is quit small.

All in all, we found the Trullo to be the perfect start for our Puglia vacation. Many thanks to Paulo, the owner, for following up on us, making sure we had a pleasent stay.

“The Magic of Trullo della Luna, Puglia and Basilicata”
Reviewed March 1, 2013 for a stay in September 2011

Subject: Trullo della Luna
Location: Ostuni, Province of Brindisi, Puglia, Italy, Europe
Title: The Magic of Trullo della Luna, Puglia and Basilicata
ID#: 152545927

From the time of arrival at the end of September, 2011, until we left a week later, Trullo della Luna couldn't have been a more unique and wonderful headquarters in heavenly, hot Puglia/Basilicata. Trullo della Luna is a very well-kept, well-equipped, beautifully restored trullo. It is the absolute perfect experience for a stay in this region, with its access (in the Panda provided!) to the towns and countryside from the Adriatic to Lecce to Matera.

There were 3 of us on this marvellous holiday - myself, my daughter and my 9 year old grandson. We all loved our trullo. The highlight for all of us was Matera, the most haunted and haunting city we've ever "felt"! Coming home from our day trips to the lovely swimming pool after a day on the road was as nurturing as the regular swims we had were good exercise and fun.

There are always plenty of "grocery" stores in all the towns you visit, with Latiano and San Michele Salentino being the closest. Look over Paolo's beautiful pictures and info and book a stay at Trullo della Luna, where the olive and fig trees will embrace you. I'd go back in a heartbeat, if I didn't have to go somewhere else in my beloved Italy!

And, of note, my husband, another grandson and I stayed in Paolo's apartment in Venice. And it was as meticulously looked after and presented as Trullo della Luna. Paolo Devescovi is the ultimate in accommodation providers!

“Way Better than Expexted”
Reviewed February 10, 2013 for a stay in June 2012

This place was great. We really enjoyed trullo life. We went out on various local excursions but the best part of our holiday was the tranquillity of lounging by the pool and exploring the garden. It felt great to be so far away from everyone else. We also enjoyed use of the car, perfect for the situation. Locals seemed really friendly and tolerant of out poor Italian language skills. House was well equipped with lots of handy extras. Would definitely book again

“We will miss it!”
Reviewed October 7, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

After coming back from our holidays we looked back and acknowledged that the time spent to find this property was worth to spend because staying at Trullo della Luna was the best part and the best memories we got during our Puglia holidays at the end of September 2012.

Living at Trullo is a worthwhile experience in its own but living in the Trullo della Luna was something more than just a property where you can eat and sleep. It is perfectly located to discover Puglia region, something around 40 min to Adriatic and Ionic coastlines and within 1 hour to the main cities like Alberobello, Lecce etc. It is very close to the airports, especially if you arrive at Brindisi, but we flew to Bari and it took us not more than 1,5 hour to get to the place. It might be quite tricky to find the property for the first time but Paolo provided us with well ellaborated instructions.

The property is a bit abandoned from the main road that makes it quite and it is a perfect location for your getaway from bustles and hustles of everyday life in th city. Everything you might need for you holidays is already here - pool, garden, perfectly equipped kitchen, living room and comfortable bedroom. If you want you can stay here the whole day, or have just breakfast and a petfect bbq in the evening while traveling around in the middle of the day.

The territory around Trullo is very nice - we ate figs and almonds from trees and even were lucky to find a pomegranate on a small tree. Together with a lockal wine it was a geat dessert for our evenings when we finished our meat of fish bbq pepared just a couple of meters from the pool. By the way you can use a rosemarine bush nearby to make you grill even beter.

A couple who assists and takes care of the property (Constanza and David) was very helpful at the time of arrival and departure but you have to be quite precise in your timing as they are quite busy due to many properties under their responsibility.

Averall I highly recommend Trullo della Luna for the holiday rental. Paolo Devescovi is a very easy man to deal with. Everything was great.

“Trullo Amazing...”
Reviewed October 3, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We stayed at the "Trullo Della Luna" for 4 nights in September and I cannot recommend this accommodation highly enough. It is just perfect.

Set in the Olive groves, the location is peaceful and only a short drive from the main sights in the area.

We visited lots of beautiful places on our holiday in Italy but nothing compared to driving up the path and returning home to such a magical place.

“Utterly magical”
Reviewed December 30, 2011 for a stay in November 2011

Trullo della Luna was magical and very romantic. Stayed for a week with my boyfriend in November. We spent a lot of time searching for our perfect trullo/"hobbit house" rental in Puglia at an affordable price and very glad we chose this one - just as cute as the pictures, if not more so. The trullo has been lovingly and sympathetically restored and is just utterly gorgeous, particularly lit up with candles at night. Inside is stone walls, rustic and exceedingly cute.Outdoors the pool is lovely and there is also a sheltered/shaded barbecue/sitting area and also a flat roof area that you can sit on and watch the sunset. It is completely peaceful - although just off a road which leads to the nearest towns (about 10 mins drive) it is set back amidst olive groves and nicely secluded, but with very sturdy locks/gates so you feel safe on an evening.

We stayed as a couple and was perfect for us - wouldn't recommend for a larger party than 3 for an extended period unless you are quite comfortable with each other as would be a bit too cosy! There is a double bedroom which has been built on to the trullo (comfy bed) and then a double sofa bed in the main living area (under the main trullo cone) and then a single sofa bed in one of the smaller cones.

No TV (meant to be a relaxing getaway so we thought this was a good thing!) but there is internet access, although we didn't try it. There's also an iron and a hairdryer :) Well located to explore the area, which has much to see (and lovely food/wine!).

We stayed off season and got pleasant weather despite it being november - can only imagine how fabulous it must be in the hotter summer months...! Would love to go back.
