The Lowdown

Pull up at this historic Apulian inn and you’ll be in for a pleasant surprise: made up of a collection of conical trullos (think traditional dry stone huts), and surrounded by idyllic olive groves and vineyards, it very nearly pops right out of a fairytale. Dating back to between 1780 and 1820, each hut has been beautifully transformed into a luxurious, five-star suite and named after a different grape variety, for a stay that’s as authentic and locally-inspired as it is historical.
Tuck into fine Apulian cuisine in the restaurant, with high standards of service upheld throughout your stay. Your annual dose of Vitamin D can be taken by the side of the contemporary pool or on a lounger on the sandy beach. And if bubbling away in the Jacuzzi or relaxing in the Turkish bath sound too low key, there’s little chance of finding yourself at a loose end around here – choose from activities such as cooking classes, painting, yoga or mountain biking, or spoil yourself with a tour of the region, to taste olive oil that’s good enough to drink and wines held in high regard by the country’s top vintners.

Absolutely wonderful
chainsawmidwife

My partner and I have just returned from a wonderful week based at this hotel.
From the moment we arrived at 22.30 at night until the moment we left nothing was too much trouble.
We'd booked and paid for our evening meals on booking. When we got there the restaurant was closed but they rang the kitchen and the waiter Martino, brought us plate after plate of antipasta.
The following evening was our first anniversary and they presented us with tiramisu with a candle in it.
Along with a little ornament to keep.
The food was lovely and typical Pulgian.
The continental breakfast gave a good selection of things to choose from.
The trulli was spacious and spotlessly clean. Simply decorated but contained everything you needed.

It's a very relaxing, friendly hotel in beautiful surroundings. I wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

Fantastic Hotel

An unusual and relaxing experience. This is not a hotel in the usual sense of the word, as it is made up of 33 separate Trulli's. Each is an individual residence set within the carefully landscaped grounds of the hotel complex. Overall the complex is clean, well maintained and offers a very good experience for the guests.
All the staff do a first class job in looking after you, Especially the waiter Martino who service is exemplary.
The hotel location is only suitable for couples with transport as it is set in a fairly remote area so there's not a lot going on for families.
Overall. a trulli excellent hotel. lol

Relaxing getaway

A step back in time and unique experience made up of 33 'trulli' (traditional stone buildings with conical roof structure). Beautifully restored and added to in traditional craft style. set within a rolling landscape of agriculture, vineyards and olive groves bounded by traditional dry stone walls - the setting and hotel are very relaxing. The rooms are unique and simply dressed to be in keeping with the restored buildings, yet well served with wifi and modern bathrooms. Lovely pool facilities and good restaurant with hot and cold buffet breakfast and changing evening dinner with fresh local ingredients, with great attention to detail and dealing well with allergies and requests, all accompanied with great selection of local quality wines. This really is a get away that is complemented by the family owners and attentive, friendly and accommodating staff - nothing too much trouble and generous in their welcome and local knowledge and recommendations. On site free secure car parking.
We will certainly return as it is a great base from which to explore the beautiful and interesting Puglia region of Italy
