il Gabellota Resort in Trulli
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 4, 2012

The staff were incredibly welcoming and friendly. The accommodation was unusual, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. This is an experience not to be missed. We had a great time. We chose a trulli without a swimming pool, when we go back, we will pay more for a pool. The breakfast is a little sparse but perfectly acceptable.

Room Tip: Ask for a house near the centre to avoid a long walk for breakfast.

Thank you for sharing your enthusiasm with us and people who will read this.
Without enthusiasm this job could not be done and that's why we do our best to make the best of our guests' stay!
As to breakfast hopefully this will be improved, it is not an easy task, though, as this service is not directly managed by us.
All the best!

Nice place and staff. We even got an upgrade and had a larger trullo. Good breakfast. Perfect location. As we were in the centre, we didn't have access to the fitness centre and the swimming pool. That's why I haven't rated them.

Thank you very much!
You know, when it is possible, we upgrade freely the rooms.
Just one thing: our hotel has no fitness centre and the swimming-pool is located in a resort 1 Km out of Alberobello.

Wonderful unique experience.we liked it so much would like to live there,never go home. Franccesco and team really helpful. We stopped at number 28 galilei. Truilli well equipped very high standard. Maids have been in three times to check for towels etc, why stop in a hotel when you could enjoy a Truilli. Thankyou for the happy holiday memories.

Places, where people stay well, are always cherished to memory, but it is possible to go back there from time to time. That's what we hope for you, to see you again at Alberobello, getting the old, magical atmosphere of trulli.
Thank you!

Turned immediately into vacation mode when entering the resort.
Completely relaxing atmosphere. Plenty of space where you can hangout and very high quality of the houses.
Perfect breakfast buffet incl. Definitively a place to return to.

We spent 3 nights in the Trulli Residence, located at 1km from Alberobello downtown. The Trulli have been restored beautifully. If you walk in the Residence at night time it seems to be in... a fairytale. My kids 16 and 14, were so amazed and enthusiastic that asked if we could stay for the rest of the vacation! Parking for the car was very easy and distance from the historical downtown was not a problem. All the personnel we met, was very cordial and helpful. When they realized we had some inconveniences with our trip arrangements (unrelated to the Trulli) they went an extra mile and assited us in solving the issues. I wish I could find the same professionalism and cordiality everywhere.

We spent our honeymoon at one of their trulli - Hill's Trullo also on tripadvisor. I will be adding the same review to this site on tripadvisor. It was just totally perfect in every way. One of the things that made it perfect was the wonderful service we had from the Trulli Holiday company. They helped us with everything - from meeting us where we had got a bit lost after a delayed flight and driving into Alberobello much later than planned, to the advice about where to shop, and their very detailed guide on where to go and sightsee in the region. I cannot fault the brilliant service we had from this company. No question was too much trouble, and they were really accomodating with our schedule. I would definitely use them again without question.

The Trullo itself was gorgeous - clean, sympathetically decorated, and stocked with all essentials for a weeks holiday. The pool was large, clean, and really well maintained. It had steps built in, and was about 1m40 deep so would be very good for anyone with children learning to swim. The olive trees around the pool were in bloom so it required a bit more daily cleaning, but they had a pool robot, and a pool guy who came over and kept everything running smoothly. It was a few km into the countryside around Alberobello, with stunning views, surrounded by olive trees and terraces with fruit orchards. It felt very private and safe. It had lots of little areas to be outside and yet shaded, two easting areas plus a big outside barbecue area and giant parasol. My only tiny complaint is that a parasol by the pool itself wound have been good. My husband is easily burnt, and he had to follow the natural shade from different olive trees around the pool! It really is a tiny complaint and the only thing I can think of to balance out the utter brilliance of everything else!!!!
We cooked at the house, and there was all the equipment needed, as well as some olive oil, salt, pepper, vinegar and some mineral water. Even napkins, table cloths, tea towels and kitchen towel! We felt it was very thoughtfully prepared.
I would recommend this Trullo to couples, families and anyone who wants a well located and atmospheric stay in the Puglian countryside. We meant to go sightseeing but did very little because this place was so great!
