The Valle d’Itria’s famous trulli dwellings are part of southern Italy’s unique cultural identity and this vacation home rental in Puglia preserves what’s so special about the region.
The distinctive conical shapes and cave-like construction are part of the area’s agricultural history and this property has been lovingly restored to celebrate the beauty and simple pleasures of the past, adapted for modern living.
Divided into four separate conical structures, the large central space houses the living and dining area, while the middle cone includes a fully equipped kitchen. There is one double bedroom and an alcove lounge space that’s a perfect hideaway for kids.

The gardens and plunge pool are surrounded by centennial olive groves with plenty of relaxing spots to chill out in the hammock, around the swimming pool and natural solarium, and to dine alfresco from the outdoor kitchen and BBQ area.
