Trullo Storico is an incredibly authentic place to stay in Puglia. Sleeping up to 4 guests, the property boasts a private swimming pool and oozes with character and charm. Situated close to Ostuni, it's also a great base for those looking to explore this beautiful region of Italy.
The trullo dates back to 1900 and has many original features including a pizza oven, stunning coned ceilings and 1.5 metre thick walls which help keep the property cool during the heat of the Summer months. There are two entrances. The first takes guests into an open plan kitchen and dining area. The style is rustic but charming with use of many natural materials. The kitchen is fully equipped with hob, marble worktops, oven and fridge freezer whilst a stunning olive wood table and benches provides seating for up to 8 guests. A door leads from here to a large double bedroom with spacious ensuite shower room. An archway leads through to an adjacent double bedroom. The set up is ideal for those with young children. A separate entrance leads to the other part of the trullo which is home to a living area with sofa seating four, another double bedroom and a final bedroom furnished with bunk beds. A corridor which is home to a washing machine and additional fridge, leads to the bathroom. This room is full of character with rustic stone sink, brass taps, bidet, WC and double shower. Outside, the property enjoys wonderful views over the surrounding countryside. There is a swimming pool (15 x 4 metres and 1.2 metres deep) in which to cool off and adjacent to the pool area are two covered areas providing shade. Loungers are also provided. Closer to the property, there is a covered veranda leading off the kitchen which is furnished with outdoor table and chairs for 8 guests. A nearby BBQ area makes it the perfect set up for al fresco dining. The gardens are full of wonderful fragrant herbs including bay, rosemary, sage and mint which you are welcome to use and the scent of orange and lemon trees fills the air.
The property is situated close to the city of Ostuni, known affectionately as the 'White City'. Whilst there is nothing within walking distance, if choosing to hire bikes, then it is possible to reach the nearest amenities and restaurants within 15 minutes.
