This Trullo is over 300 years old, and has been lovingly restored by its current owner.A trullo (plural trulli) is an ancient stone building, peculiar to Puglia and particularly the area surrounding the town of Alberobello.
They are dry-stone laid, using local limestone with conical roofs, and are reputed to have been created by local farmers to avoid tax in that they could easily be pulled down on a visit from the tax inspector.
However, when you see a trullo you would see why this is an unlikely story – the walls can be six feet thick!

The family would typically live in the main trullo, with a fire place/oven and storage on a wooden floor overhead in the cone.

The construction was finished in December 2005 and also a fantastic pool (12m x 6m).

This Trullo is completely original with no added rooms. The stone work has been left in its original state, to remain in keeping with the local area.

We have furnished Patrizia with traditional local furniture with a modern chic look!

The trullo is set in its own private 5 acres of olive, walnut, fig and cherry trees, on top of a hill, in a beautiful, unspoilt rurallocation near Alberobello, Puglia.

As you enter the main entrance there is a small cosy lounge area, with two double bedrooms. You then go up a windy stone staircase to the next floor, where you will enter the lounge, diner and kitchen area. To the right is a small room, which could be used as a single bedroom.
