“Lovely Trullo in Beautiful Setting”
Reviewed September 17, 2011 for a stay in September 2009

We holidayed with another family so the fact that we could be together and still have the privacy of our own trullo was great. The trulli are located down a quiet track with a lovely view across the valley. It really was an idyllic setting - although we had to drive everywhere so car hire is essential. When we visited the upper part of the track was steep and a bit tricky to negotiate but was OK when we had got used to it! The hillside location did seem to mean that there was quite a strong breeze when we stayed and this caused some problems with the sun umbrellas which were not quite up to the job. So while the breeze was nice, it was very tricky being unable to get out of the sun. From the recent photographs however fixed shade has been installed on each terrace and by the pool so that should no longer be an issue.

We were annoyed with ourselves that we did not check when the Alberobello weekly market ran before we left home and managed to miss it - twice! So while we could have got lots of lovely produce from there, we stupidly had to shop in the local supermarket. Don't repeat our mistake!

We were 2 couples and 3 children (5, 18months and 9 months). The pool was gated but otherwise I am not sure that I would reccomend this place for children under 3. The gravel/stone paths and drops by retaining walls made for one-too-many heart stopping moments!

We were very impressed by the quality of the buildings and the renovation of the trulli, but there were some space planning issues which made me wonder what the architect had been thinking: In trullo olivio the twin room did not have a wardrobe and was too small to fit the provided travel cot. The travel cot was then put in the main bedroom with us (to be fair the owner did give us a small refund due to our disappointment at not being able to use the 2 bedrooms) but space was so tight the cot stopped the door closing completely - which meant we had to creep around the trullo after our son's 6pm bedtime which was a bit of shame. In our friends' trullo (Alto) a similar oddity - almost having to climb into the bath to shut the door in the main bathroom due to the tight space! Laslty the kitchen was incredibly small with only a tiny section of worktop, so the kitchen table had to double as working space. The oven is also a fiendishly complicated hybrid of microwave and conventional oven which took a bit of getting used to! However if forewarned about these small issues, you can plan accordingly and have no problem!

Having seen that the fixed sunshades and a new sofa have since been installed I would recomment to a friend - as long as they did not have small children. It is a lovely place to get away from it all and in particular the use of shutters in the bedrooms mean you could shut out the light and have a glorious long lie in the mornings.

“Idyllic retreat from life in typical Italian style!!”
Reviewed July 30, 2011 for a stay in July 2011

Had ten days this July in Trulli Olivo and had a brilliant time - four of us including two teenage sons! The Trulli is well and truly (!) hidden down a track and during the ten days the only other traffic past was a farmer to check on his vines. The accomodation is very well presented - beautiful bathroom and well organised kitchen with dishwasher etc. The view from the dining table is great. And sharing a swimming pool with only one other family was such a luxury!. The photos on the website have been recently updated and are very accurate, but there's a couple of things that aren't quite up to date, eg there's no internet access in the trulli for those who can't leave work or facebook behind!!

Whilst we were there the area enjoyed two freak mediterranean storms that nearly washed the whole road away. This meant driving to and from the trulli really nerve racking, particularly in our little hire car! However things are in hand to smooth it over for the rest of the season. The pool is also having a makeover at the end of the season - some of the paint is worn and flaking, again aggravated by the storm.

The area the trulli is in is definately the best of Puglia - there's always something going on in Alberobello but you'd better get in quick before other tourists discover the area. There's evidence of building and rennovation going on in most towns but, as yet, very few english tourists!
