Trullo Rosmarino is beautiful and very interesting.
Trullo Rosmarino was so wonderful! We found absolutely everything we could dream of needing in the very well-stocked villa along with lovely personal touches from the owners. We enjoyed the gorgeous outdoor spaces to relax in and we LOVED the fire pit area in the evenings! The welcome basket was SO generous. We got to experience the in-villa cook service as well as a cooking class with Anna and Magda and we had such a great time, not to mention ate delicious food! We were very grateful for the sharing of their passion for the region and for teaching us about the local delights.
I would say that the website photography doesn’t do justice to the space and quality of Trullo Rosmarino.
Trullo Rosmarino is outstanding. Its location is perfect. We had a very memorable trip. You operate a very well-oiled machine.
The pictures and web photos of Trullo Rosmarino were outstanding but seeing the villa live was was even better than any pictures. The villa dinners were outstanding. We all loved our holiday.
Trullo Rosmarino surpassed even our very high expectations. A beautiful villa in a pretty part of Puglia. It is incredibly well appointed with every aspect of your holiday provided for. Loving restored building that was stylish, spacious and comfortable. The outside space and pool was perfect, we particularly loved the fire pit in the evenings. The hospitality from the owner and his team was warm, attentive and went above and beyond usual standards of service. We really couldn’t fault a thing and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We would love to return in the future.
Our in-villa Nonna Anna brightened our day every time we had the pleasure of seeing her. From the moment we met her upon our arrival to the AMAZING meal she prepared and the in-villa cooking class she was perfect. Grazie Anna!!!
We loved every minute of our holiday at Trullo Rosmarino and can’t wait to return.
The in-villa cooks were amazing!!
Trullo Rosmarino was well set out with many different sitting areas outside so you could always get away for a quiet read. We had the in-villa cooks twice which was a great treat.
Trullo Rosmarino is a very well-equipped villa. The owner was an excellent host and very keen to help if we needed anything. The grounds are fabulous and the pool is ideal. We didn't do much exploring as we were so comfortable at Trullo Rosmarino.
Trullo Rosmarino is an AMAZING villa. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Our family thanks you all for your help and support. I have to say that Trullo Rosmariino was a very charming place. The house and the garden was very well lit. Garden was full of great variety of plants, well planned. Underfloor heating was heavenly. It was one of the reasons we rented the place in autumn. Books left by people passing by was a nice idea, as was all the artwork in the house inspiring people to check out who makes these things and where to buy them. There were plenty of toys and games for the children as well. Even the small shop nearby had almost everything we needed. The owners have created the atmosphere of Sweet Doing Nothing just right. We are happy about our choice. Hopefully we can use your agency again some day.
Trullo Rosmarino is seriously amazing and we will be recommending it to lots of people.
Trullo Rosmarino was excellent. The cook was also excellent - kind, fun to have around and very welcoming.
We loved the villa - all three generations of us. We had a great holiday with all 8 of us putting it high on our list of holiday experiences - which says quite a lot since the 6 adults are all seasoned world travellers. The windows and doors of the villa are first rate with fixed but unobtrusive netting on the windows allowing them to be left open through the night.
Lovely welcome by the owner and delightful welcome baskets of local produce which we all enjoyed using. Lovely space to enjoy ahd relax. We had a lovely meal cooked meal at the villa.
Trullo Rosmarino was fabulous - there was even a kitchen garden where we could help ourselves to fruit, herbs etc.
Trullo Rosmarino was just a wow from the first welcome by the owner right through to the very end.
Trullo Rosmarino is an absolutely fabulous villa. The quality of the villa was exceptional. The owner could not have been more welcoming and helpful.The ladies who help him are lovely and friendly. We enjoyed being in a rural area and exploring such a special place. We loved the grounds and all the areas to sit and relax. It was perfect for our group. The beds were very comfortable.
We did not leave the villa once! The owners are just incredible. They were SO helpful and really went above and beyond the call of duty. Anna, the cook, is the kindest lady and a fab cook.
Trullo Rosmarino is stunning! The owners were brilliant, so very welcoming and very generous. Upon our arrival we had a lovely welcome basket and we particularly liked the wine and beer menu, which was very well done. We are passionate about cooking and utilised all of the fantastic facilities that Rosmarino has. It may seem a small thing but this is probably the first villa that we have stayed in that actually has sharp kitchen knives!! The equipment in the kitchen was excellent, there was everything and more than you would need, so as keen cooks we valued this hugely. The herb and vegetable garden was also well used and we very much appreciated the opportunity to harvest the produce. It was a lovely gesture on our departure day when the owner presented us with little food bags! We would love to return to Rosmarino!
The house was easy to use and warm. The grounds were beautiful. We all kept saying it was a great place to have a big party! The owners are FANTASTIC and did a wonderful job of welcoming us, taking care of any problems, explaining the workings of the house and providing a very generous welcome basket. We had a wonderful experience.
The villa is as good, if not better, than shown in the brochure with numerous places to simply lay about and relax. The owners were absolutely wonderful. They bent over backwards to ensure our stay was perfect! We also had a meal prepared inhouse, and would highly recommend doing this. Anna prepared an utterly amazing meal for us!!
The owners were so thoughtful and gracious with arrival gifts and departure breakfasts. The villa has everything one needs and is warm and welcoming. We had a fabulous stay - 10 friends and family in great gathering spaces. Highly recommend.
Trullo Rosmarino is a special place. Not only is the house outstanding but the grounds are breathtaking. What made the house so exceptional was certainly the owners' attention to detail. Upon entry to the house we were greeted with baskets of food and wine to get us started and no detail in the house was overlooked. This is the best villa we have ever rented in Europe both in beauty and customer service. I do not want to leave out the very special Annas who cooked for us two nights. Their exuberance and fine cooking made for very special evenings. Thank you to all at The Thinking Traveler and to our special Mauro for the very best of holidays. EVERYTHING was fantastic!
Our holiday was PERFECT! It's a very long journey for us and we were afraid about what we would find...what a wonderful surprise, Mauro's reception, the gifts he gave us, the beautiful house, the place, Tamara's attention....awesome, that's the word! I must tell you that we loved the cook! So kind and the food was GREAT!
We were very happy with the quality of the villa and the reality was even above the expectations set by the pictures on the website (which were already quite high). Excellent experience overall - we will definitely come back to Puglia at some point and most certainly book from The Thinking Traveller again.
The property really is lovely in every way and far exceeded our expectations. Lovely house, pool and grounds with great facilities and attention to detail. The surroundings are beautiful and the property is situated in a lovely area with lots to see. When we arrived we were provided with a wonderful array of local food and wine and when we left we got a packed lunch. The owners were nice, relaxed, helpful and the staff keep the property and grounds in impeccable condition.
Our stay at Trullo Rosmarino was brilliant.
Beautiful setting. Owners very helpful and really friendly. Did we enjoy our holiday? Yes, totally want to go back
We had a really wonderful week. We were most impressed with the warm welcome. The quality of the accommodation was exceptional (specially the bathrooms!) and we loved all the individual touches everywhere in the house. The grounds and pool were fantastic and particularly child-friendly. We enjoyed the peace of a week in the countryside, the delicious goodies in the welcome pack which were presented in a particularly attractive way in rustic baskets and specially the wonderful pool!
Our best villa yet! Everything was provided, not once did we think wish we had this here. The owners were fantastic, we were totally spoiled, a locally sourced starter pack and drink, but a leaving brunch as well! Not only will we have memories that last a lifetime, but pasta making skills to pass on in our family, thanks to the fantastic in-villa cook.
Wonderful service, excellent cook.
Our high expectations were all met.
The trullo was great on all levels and the owners of Trullo Rosmarino were incredibly warm and helpful. Overall, awesome!
Likely the best villa we have stayed in! The standard is really high and literally everything (and more) that you could need was present. The interiors are great - the kitchen is amazing and the sitting and dining areas, both inside and out, are thoughtfully done and flexible.
The setting is lovely and the grounds are amazing. The latter conclusion comes from a toddler and two generations of adults equally. So many areas to sit and relax, shaded and in the sun, a fire pit which we used and loved for the September evenings and really nice views. The owner who we met, and his wife, who we texted, were brilliant. Small issues were fixed really quickly and we were recommended plenty of places to visit too. Really caring owners and the welcome and farewell food gifts were outstanding and thoughtful. The local ladies who cooked us two meals were brilliant, as were the meals too and the villa was kept in a perfect state. This villa is just perfect for a family stay - the cot and high chair were high standard too!!
i wanted to say couple of words about our experience with The Thinking Traveller. We stayed in Trullo Rosmarino for a week with our family and friends. It was a wonderful experience from start to finish. We felt very much relaxed during our stay. The owners are wonderful hosts and tried to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. The property itself beautifully decorated throughout with a kitchen big enough to entertain 10 guests. The property is child-friendly with plenty of space for a baby. The grounds are stunning with fruit trees and even a vegetable plot. The pool is extremely clean with an innovative cleaning system. I would definitely recommend to ask for extra services such as cleaning and cooking as it makes your life so much easier. The proximity to the beach and to the little towns such as Martina Franca and Ostuni make this property accessible from any point. I can’t recommend this property enough!
The house was really fantastic, we all loved it. We had a great week, thank you!
Les propriétaires sont adorables, un vrai plaisir de les rencontrer et de discuter avec eux. Le personnel également, efficace et très serviable.
