For those looking for a luxury villa in Puglia that’s more than a little different, The Trulli is the answer. This unique property is made up of 11 ‘trulli’, once-temporary conical white houses that are now recognised as heritage sites by UNESCO. The cluster of little white stone ‘tents’ is a magical sight as you approach. You really do have to look twice to check you haven’t imagined it! Once inside, the vibe is traditional with a contemporary twist – whitewashed walls and splashes of bright Mediterranean colour bring the shared living spaces to life, while neutral bedrooms and spa-style bathrooms provide comfort and relaxation.
The villa’s outside space has been carefully designed to create a real ‘alfresco home’. Two stone courtyards have been designed to become an outdoor living area… a garden kitchen under the gazebo comes complete with its own dishwasher and oven so you can enjoy cooking under the stars of an evening. And the cobalt-blue tiled pool is a wonderful space in which to float away the day.
Surrounded by herb gardens, in turn encircled by olive groves and fruit trees, with vineyards beyond as far as the eye can see, The Trulli offers real seclusion and, above all, a sense of peace that’s hard to find at home. Listen to the cicadas, inhale the heady scent of rosemary, lavender and fruit trees and breathe a little deeper in your own Italian trulli – Trulli a very special place.
