Beautiful trullo in tranquil setting

5 of 5
Beautifully restored traditional trullo, with stylish but also comfortable furniture. Lovely areas to sit outside and soak up the pretty views, great pool area (with added bonus of table tennis). Well equipped with everything you need. Quiet and peaceful setting but with plenty of places to visit if you want to (old towns, countryside, beaches) so a great area to explore. Sharon and her family and Imma and her family couldn't have been more kind, helpful and welcoming. Spotless and faultless. Would totally recommend. We were so glad we decided to stay in this really pretty trullo as it has completely made our holiday!!

We had a wonderful time at Sharon's lovely home. The region, the setting, the location, the modern yet cave-like interior, the pool and beautifully landscaped grounds, the entire atmosphere were all spectacular. Sharon and Imma were very helpful, friendly and accommodating in every way. And Puglia is just stunning. All in all, we can't wait to return!


Stunning Trulli . Stunning Location.

5 of 5
The trulli is a classic Puglian construction but with all mod cons... decent WiFi , Tv etc . The master bedroom is amazing, bedroom two lovely and third bedroom is on the small side for two but perfectly adequate.

There is no air con but you really do not need it. It was 37 c plus when I was there and the almost constant breeze combined with thick walls kept the place nice and cool. The pool is beautiful with far reaching views.

Its a short drive to the local supermarket which stocks most of what we needed. Only 10 minutes away is the beautiful and classically Puglian town of Cisternino and Locorotonto, Martina Franca and Ostuni are not far. I would say a car was essential . The owners couldn't do enough to make our stay amazing and Imma , who lives next door , ensured the place was maintained and cleaned regularly.

Highly recommended !


Rediscovering the art of simplicity.

Busy schedules, deadlines, phones that never stop ringing. We all know that, but imagine that all of a sudden, you can retreat from "this modern life", and for a short period of time get a simpler, fulfilled everyday: That is exactly what happens in Contrada Fantese.

We had a very nice time in the Trullo. Expect the unexpected, because in the moment that you step out of the plane, things will get another rhythm immediately. You will find the house with a good guide that Sharon prepared for you in advance, but that doesn't prevent you to get a bit lost (yes, that happens even with a Navi) in the middle of Bari's province. The reward? We ate such a great selection of antipasti at Masseria Cantone, and a Jar of a good vino Pugliese... A block away of the house.

We enjoy each time of our trip as well as the small details of simplicity that make the Haus a place with flair. The fusion of a restored Trullo with an eclectic decoration made a real visual statement. This is a place were we could recover our tranquility of the busy days. We loved the garden and all the fresh condiments that we could use to cook (Rosmarin, thyme, sage) THAT, was lovely.

Details that will make your stay fascinating.

If you had enough of the sea or the sightseeing, you can just stay and enjoy the pool. You can spend a beautiful time with your kids (if any), and eat in some of the places that were thought with a lot of sensibility for it (terrace, in front of the pool, next to the House). You are in the middle of the fields, and the sun coming down seen in the top of the Trullo will "tank" your energy for a while. You'll get in touch with yourself.

Sharon was amazing and things developed fast and uncomplicated. The time of response was a delight, as well as the kindness that we experienced in all of our comunications. In Italy, what can I say? We had the most kind people around us. They were always aware of us and helpful in each situation. Really a good family!

If that is important to you as it is to me, I will say that the House was very clean, and no, this isn't a "formule de politesse": The house was really clean and WELL maintained.

We enjoyed our stay and definitely we would love to return some time in the future to repeat the experience of this beautiful trip.

Thank you!


A very unusual property. Spacious but cosy.

My friends and I wanted a break away for a week and this was the ideal place.

Met by the housekeeper on arrival and shown the workings of the property was helpful. The property was clean and beautifully decorated with all the amenities one needed to make for a comfortable stay. The pool and surrounding area was idyllic. A car is essential to visit the charming and unspoilt villages and towns nearby. We particularly liked visiting Martina Franca with its local restaurants and typically Italian style buildings including a wonderful Cathedral in the town square. I have no hesitation in recommending this Trulli as an ideal holiday destination and hope to return very soon.
