About the Villa
A stylish, comfortable trullo in a superb location and with a great pool.
Trullo Terra Dolce (literally, "Sweet Earth") is a beautifully restored collection of original trulli, set in the rolling olive groves, and with far reaching views, of the soothing Valle d'Itria countryside. The sensitive restoration has comfort in mind in the form of superb fittings and underfloor climate control, and great style in the choice of materials and furnishings. This is a flexible property that will suit many group formations, from families to groups of friends.
"What a memorable family holiday we all had at Trullo Terra Dolce! The grounds are so beautiful. Our 5-year old grand-daughter summed it up when she said it was sad to leave Trullo Terra Dolce. It was her first overseas trip, but she and her 8-year old brother loved the villa. The place was just as enjoyable for us and our sons and daughters-in-law. The in-villa pizza cooked in the wood-fired outdoor oven on the night we arrived was the perfect beginning to our holiday. We were tired from our long flights and it was a Canadian holiday, Thanksgiving. We may do pizza from now on for Thanksgiving as a reminder of our family trip to Puglia!"

Inside: accommodation at Trullo Terra Dolce is spread over three independently accessed houses which, whilst resembling a single building from the outside, are not connected internally. The "main house" is nearest to the pool and has a comfortable open-plan living and dining room with large glass doors offering stunning views over the gardens and pool, a well-equipped kitchen, also with garden access, one double bedroom with an alcove bed and an en-suite bathroom with tub and rainfall shower, a study with an ornamental daybed and a second bathroom.
The middle of the three houses is a classic trullo and is home to a double bedroom (with bed in an alcove) and an en-suite shower room.
The third house, furthest from the pool, comprises two bedrooms, a double and a double-twin and two shower rooms (of which one en-suite), a living room with access to the gardens and an al fresco dining and lounge area, a dining room with original bread oven and a kitchen.
The properties have been beautifully restored to a very high quality and subtly brought into the 21st century: many of the original features have been retained, some fulfilling their original function, others being ingeniously put to other uses. Traditional Puglian and exotic Indian furniture and furnishings combine to create a bright, cheery atmosphere throughout, while the bathrooms combine contemporary-style suites with original stone-carved wash basins.
a. if you book as a couple (i.e. 1 bedroom) you will be accommodated in the main house.
b. if you need 2 bedrooms, you may choose either the main house and the trullo or the 2-bedroom house
c. if you need 3 bedrooms, you will be accommodated in the main house and the 2-bedroom house
Outside: Trullo Terra Dolce is surrounded by extensive gardens and terraces with a selection of shady spots for al fresco living and dining. Green lawns alternate with paved areas and all has been planted with a large variety of colourful and fragrant Mediterranean flora. The focal point, however, is the splendid pool, from which views over the surrounding woods (accessible from the gardens) and gentle countryside are delightful.
Whether you book just the main house or all the property, you will always have exclusive use of the ground and pool.
