Puglia Trullos - The traditional & Iconic home
A magical choice for your italian holiday
Staying in a traditional Puglia trullo will
give you the opportunity to have a charming Puglia Holiday
experience. These amazing conical structures were traditionally
made to provide temporary farming shelters for workers, or store
houses as early as the 13th century onwards.
The trullo birthplace of Alberobello has a spectacular amount of
trulli that will definitely capture your imagination. As the
trulli grew in popularity they spread beyond the boundaries of
Alberobello and can be found in other areas of the Itria Valley
The trulli of Alberobello is a UNESCO world
wonder, and it isn't hard to see why. They can be found as
far as the eye can see. It's always worth noting the
different pinnacles and symbols that are sometimes whitewashed onto
the roofs as these images have some magical and mystical meanings
from old and new religions that just add to the charm of these
great little houses.
It's these slightly quirky and mystical connections that people
find so enchanting about the trullo.
Traditionally built completely out of local limestone without
mortar the thick layered walls are great at keeping out the heat in
the summer and keeping in the warmth during the winter. With
its outer walls white washed twice a year these cottages are
beautiful to look at and surprisingly spacious to stay in.
Staying in your own Puglia trullo will give you
the chance to experience this traditional style of Italian abode,
with all the luxury of modern development. Our selection of trulli
have been modernised and renovated to a really high standard whilst
not loosing that appeal of the traditional trulli.
So imagine arriving at your trullo in Puglia
and seeing the magical conical structure that will be your home for
the duration of your holiday, and then stepping inside to discover
that it has been sensitively extended and modernised to include all
the luxurious creature comforts you could need.
Finished to an incredibly high standard choosing to stay in a
converted trullo will mean that not only will you get to explore
the beautiful Southern Italian area of Puglia, you get to have a
spectacular base to relax in. Eating the local Italian produce
alfresco on the terrace, or taking an evening dip in the private
pool, one thing is for sure, you will never forget your
