After a busy, fast-paced professional life and years of travel, the owners of this small luxury hotel in Italy switched gears, coming back to southern Italy to begin anew. Their road led to the famed Itria Valley and its unique region dotted with Trulli, where they identified the beginnings of a dream.
Discovering a property that beckoned them back to the simple life, they set about restoring the property and it’s unique structures.
Originally constructed as temporary agricultural dwellings, the enchanting trulli are found only in the specific region of the Itria Valley and the seamless renovation allows you to understand how the first inhabitants lived.
With their distinctive conical roofs and humble interiors, these formerly primitive huts have not lost any of their original charm.
Trullo 19 sleeps four and draws inspiration from the idea of “creative recycling,” with furnishings, objects and raw materials that were given a second chance thanks to Vlab Art Design.
The en suite space is equipped with an outdoor kitchenette with a wood fired oven (an optional private chef offers cookings classes for an authentic taste of Puglia), a private patio overlooking the main courtyard with a dining and sitting area, with access to the terrace for exclusive use.
Immersed into the olive groves and surrounded by countryside, it’s a peaceful authentic way of life that invites you in.
Located within a few minutes from the famous “White Town” of Ostuni and the lovely old town of Ceglie Messapica, renowned for its excellent cuisine, the hotel is also just a short drive to some of Puglia’s loveliest beaches on both the Ionian and Adriatic, offering stretches of sandy bays and the highly recommended WWF nature reserves.
Ideally placed for exploring the enchanting Valle d’Itria, the picture-postcard villages of Martina Franca, Alberobello, Cisternino and Locorotondo are some of the most well preserved and fascinating in Puglia. The charming little fishing harbour of Savelletri is under a half hour away and the amazing Torre Guaceto nature reserve includes both protected marine and wilderness areas perfect for exploring the coastal beauty. Don’t miss the charming old town of Polignano a Mare with breathtaking cliffside views of of the Adriatic.
