Nestling amid olive groves and the gently sloping hills of Val d’Itria in central Puglia, this charming trullo for four people is ideally situated on the edge of Martina Franca and within walking distance of a restaurant and shops. The world-famous hilltop towns of Ostuni and Alberobello, and both Adriatic and Ionic coasts are all within easy driving distance of this typical Apulian property.
If you wish to fully immerse yourself in the slow pace of Puglia’s lifestyle and to explore this gorgeous territory, its rich artistic and gastronomic heritage, its folklore and stunning seascape, this trullo is just what you are looking for. Part of a small gated domain this renovated trullo enjoys privacy with its own fully enclosed grounds with the further benefit of a communal fitness area with outdoor Jacuzzi tub. Based at Trullo San Martino you will be within easy driving distance of Puglia’s most charming towns. Martina Franca is just a stone’s throw away and boasts a picturesque old quarter with lots of quaint shops and restaurants to choose from; Locorotondo is considered one of the ”Borghi piu belli d'Italia“ (most beautiful towns in Italy) and so is Cisternino, with a weekly market every Monday. Towering over green woodland and the Adriatic sea, Ostuni is known as the ”white city“, one of the gems of the Valle d’Itria. If you wonder why this territory is also known as ‘Trulli Land’ you must visit Alberobello, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which owes its popularity worldwide to its 1,400 trulli, which are unique to this region.
All of these picturesque towns also feature patron saint festivals throughout the summer with light shows, firework displays, music and gastronomic delights galore! And don’t forget that Puglia boasts the longest stretch of coastline on the Italian mainland encompassing white sandy beaches with crystal waters on the Ionic coast as well as sandy coves alternating with high rocky cliffs and a deep blue sea on the Adriatic coast – both well worth exploring.
