Enchanting trulli villa (traditional dwelling with thick stone walls and conical roofs) set within a beautifully landscaped and planted terraced garden with a panoramic infinity pool set level with the horizon. There are lemon trees and herbs planted to hand next to the shaded outdoor kitchen and barbecue area which also has a table for dining al fresco. A short flight of steps leads down to a large gazebo with comfortable divans long enough to stretch out on and read or snooze in the shade. A table for drinks, speakers linked to the house sound system (with idock) romantic lanterns and a glorious view make this also the perfect place for an early evening drink. A few steps more takes you to the lawn and swimming pool with loungers and an old olive tree for shade.
Inside the trulli are small but stylishly furnished, with a living room/dining room with a double sofa bed, a kitchen, two double bedrooms and a bathroom with shower. In an annexe there is a further bathroom with shower.
Monopoli with its daily market, shops and restaurants is 10 km away; as are some great sandy or rocky beaches. Within a 20 minute drive you can also explore other charming towns such as Polignano with its dramatic clifftop setting, Conversano with its Norman castle, Alberobello, World Unesco Heritage site, the Grottoes at Castellana Grotte. Lecce, Matera and Trani are all within a hour and a half drive.
This villa is perfect for a romantic getaway, two couples, or a family with children past the toddling stage.
If needed a second charming villa (Casa Anna) lies only a few metres down the road; this is also available for short stays so could be used with Trulli Vista to provide accommodation for larger groups – perfect for a family Christmas or celebration. There are no other neighbours and both villas have large gardens and are screened from each other.
Inside the villa there is a small but well equipped kitchen and a dining room but most guests will choose to cook and dine outside. There is an outdoors kitchen with barbecue, gas hobs and a double sink, and a shaded dining area. A cook or private chef is available if required at an extra cost.
