We (2 couples) had the pleasure of meeting Cristina and her husband at their incredible trullo in Alberobello. If we could have rated it 6 stars, we would have! The trullo is situated in the most beautiful setting and is even more stunning than the pictures lead you to believe. The home itself is perfectly appointed; not one item was needed. Cristina could not have been more thoughtful and kind, and provided us with wonderful suggestions of where to eat and what sights to see. She was readily available to answer any questions.
Over our two and a half weeks in Italy, we stayed in 5 different apartments in 5 cities/ towns. This was, by far, our favourite, not only for the amenities of the trullo, but for the thoughtfulness of our hosts. We would love to return someday! Grazie mille, Christina!
This quaint home was very well appointed with every convenience and necessity. It is actually 2 of the historic trulli that are linked, so it was very spacious compared to the other rentals. The beds were comfy, there was everything needed for preparing meals, dishwasher, washing machine, a cute little private courtyard for relaxing. The owner and the manager were extremely pleasant and helpful in every way. We enjoyed eating out, but occasionally got the things to make dinner at home. There are a lot of shops nearby to get what's needed.
We stayed a week and after exploring Alberobello, we drove to neidghboring areas for more sightseeing. It was central to all of the places we wanted to go: Bari, Monopoli, Taranto, Matera. The owner provided a list of places to visit in the region, as well as local restaurants and attractions.
