Living in a trullo is a unique experience

Little rooms with a domed ceiling; conical roofs built out of blocks of white calcareous stone, crowned by curious pinnacles of all different shapes; metre-thick walls, either white or in warm colours, which keep the inside cool during the heat of summer, but warm in winter; recesses in the walls used for shelving and cupboard space; set in pleasant age-old welcoming countryside, with an assortment of seasonal fragrances.



In the scenic Itria Valley, a group of friends, filled with love for the area, decided to restore and live in a physical and emotional space, using thought and action to choose true alternatives to the everyday homes available.
Living and working, sharing their homes and knowledge with anyone looking forward to travelling to, exploring and staying in the area – that is the spirit that unites your hosts.


«Despite delayed flights and a late night arrival, we found the gorgeous Trullo Dolce Vita without a hitch and were greeted warmly by the incredibly helpful Giuseppe who showed us around our home for the next week. A delightful Puglian welcome basket meant we had everything we needed for breakfast - and a night cap before bed despite the delays.
Set in beautifully landscaped gardens, this trullo is equipped with a stunning outdoor kitchen, deep pool with diving board (the teen loved it) and every possible need and comfort is tended to, from anti mosquito plugs to the special plate to wet and prepare frise, Puglia's traditional double cooked bread rings. The early mornings were a joy listening to the birds and crickets while evenings around the pool enjoying an aperitif were unforgettably tranquil and the twilight a joy. San Michele Salentino, the nearest town has a couple of fantastic trattorie and great fruit and vegetable shopping. Beaches are 20 minutes away, the delights of Ostuni and many of the other bustling towns for nightlife close enough to make evenings out easy and relaxed. One thing we would suggest is that guests be shown how to turn off the garden lighting at night - if you want to see the stars - and we did - it is essential. A fantastic, unforgettable oasis - we'd return in a heart beat. Thank you Nicla and team.»
