“The first time I saw a trullo was during a road trip on my first visit to southern Italy. I made my now husband stop the car so I could take a photo of a little white, round house with a grey, cone shaped roof, and a bright red front door. It was the most adorable little house I’d ever seen and what I imagined a house from any one of my childhood storybooks would look like in real life. We later reached the trullo we’d actually be staying in, and I was so excited when I stepped inside the quaint and cozy little home. It was also nice that some of our neighbors where actual residents who had lived in their trulli for their entire lives. To speak to a person who has lived a way of life you’re just sampling for a night or two is always a plus. Our sweet old lady neighbor really added something special to our stay by sharing some of her personal story, inviting us to take a look inside her own trullo and giving us some insight into the historical importance of the trullo in local history. “ –Maisha

“Trullo veramente suggestivo,elegante, ben arredato e fornito di tutto il necessario per il nostro soggiorno, situato in un quartierino ben tenuto. Siamo state molto bene, Il padrone di casa è stato molto disponibile e piacevole. La località è decisamente comoda per raggiungere quelle che per noi sono state le spiagge più belle della zona (punta della suina) e per il caratteristico centro di Gallipoli.” –Karin
“This Trulli is actually located on a rancho teritory with horses and some other guests houses, which are totally isolated from Trulli. Although the pool was shared and located closer to other houses, the villa was very good. We did used the BBQ and cooked fresh seafood bought from local fish market. And the outdoor terrace is very good for meals and chilling. The host is not living there so you will enjoy full privacy during the stay.” –Lulian
“The trulo was amazing. Everything was perfect condition, astonishing bedroom with fanstatic and huge mirror. Wonderful place to relax and chill out on the top of the roof with panoramic view of olives trees, palms and sea. Fabio was very helpful and kind. We would choose it again. Thank you, Fabio, for everything!” –Modesta
“Agréable trullo plein de charme au milieu des oliviers (mention spéciale pour la terrasse sur le toit qui offre un magnifique coucher de soleil sur la mer). Bon emplacement, accès facile aux plages et centre de Gallipoli. Hôte très sympatique et disponible. A recommander!” -Francois & Laurine
“Il trullo è veramente carino e pulito, collocato a due kilometri dalla scogliera e dalla spiaggia. Sono stato una settimana con i miei figli in un posto piacevole e tranquillo anche perché in giugno le spiagge sono deserte… Ottima vacanza.” -Andrea
“Unbeschreiblich schön! Der Trullo ist so liebevoll restauriert und eingerichtet und dabei sehr geräumig! Wir hatten so viel Platz, überall schöne Terassen und nicht zu vergessen: die Aussendusche ;-)! Ich liebe es! Der Strand in Mancaversa ist felsig, aber in 5 Minuten mit dem Auto ist man an einem der schönsten Srände Apuliens (Lido Pizzo). Gastgeber sehr nett und entspannt- grazie! Wir wären gern noch länger geblieben…” -Sylvia
