Il Trullo del Nonno - Trullo apartment near Ostuni

Typically local living in the heart of Valle d’Itria

Valle d’Itria, located between the towns of Ostuni, Cisternino and Martina Franca, with its whitish grey cone-shaped trulli roofs pointing skyward to the left and to the right of the roads appears like a fairy-tale landscape.

Shamans, so we are told, have here discovered a center of strong positive energy. And, according to legends, the mighty trunks of the centuries-old olive trees are home to witches and magicians.

Then we are back in our 'earthly world' and at the trullo of family Romanelli, where Nonno Pasquale sets the agenda. The former Colonnello (colonel), fondly called Lino by his family, his wife Maria and his daughter Michela show us round the family’s summer residence. 

The idyllically situated trullo apartment is surrounded by a 1 ha olive grove, which is enclosed by dry stone walls. Relaxation – that is what really counts here for the family as well as their guests.  

The charm of rural Apulia

When Nonno Pasquale bought the premises between Ostuni and Cisternino 20 years ago, the family immediately decided that the works of renovation should be such as to preserve the original charm of the old, plain farmhouse.

The stone floors inside the apartment are original; the doors and window frames are made of wood just like they used to be in former times; many of the former fitments have been restored and make for the very special atmosphere inside the trullo today. 

Il Trullo del Nonno is an accommodation typical for the area, where up to 4 persons (family with two children) can spend their holidays. To the left of the entrance area, there is a small chimney corner, which is followed by a cozy living area with sofa bed, writing table and reading chair. To the right, there is the open, plain kitchenette with two-burner gas stove, small oven and refrigerator (with freezer compartment) as well as the dining area.  

The two bedrooms of the trullo are furnished with a double bed and a bunk bed, respectively. The bathroom with WC, bidet and masonry shower cabin is next to the double bedroom. A children’s cot is available for very young guests. The washing machine is found in a separate room behind the apartment.  

The trullo apartment is furnished with heating and therefore also an ideal accommodation during low season. In summer, the strong and solid stone walls keep the heat outside.

A sunny terrace, prickly pears, caper bushes, olive, almond and mulberry trees 

Superbly tended Mediterranean premises surround the trullo and its lamia annex, which used to be a stable and shelter for the flock of sheep. From April to October, this separate part of the trullo complex is inhabited by Pasquale's very friendly daughter Michela and her husband Emanuele. Do not hesitate to ask the couple about the most beautiful spot in Valle d'Itria, for culinary tips as well as tips concerning excursions - you are sure to experience unforgettable and authentic holidays in Apulia.

On the large terrace in front and at the side of the trullo, you find several seating accommodations and spots for sunbathing and relaxing; a pizza oven and a grill are found behind the apartment. Your pets are welcome on the spacious premises, too.  A shady parking space is available in front of the accommodation.  

Shopping at Cisternino, sightseeing at Martina Franca and bathing at Torre Canne

Il Trullo del Nonno is an ideal starting point for quite a number of discovery tours in Valle d’Itria and of Apulia’s absolutely marvelous coasts. The towns of Cisternino, Ostuni, Alberobello, Martina Franca and Locorotondo are only a stone’s throw away and offer all kinds of cultural and culinary highlights.  

For bathing or swimming in the sea you might go to the long sandy beaches on the Adriatic or the Ionian coast. The nearest beach is found at Torre Canne. The small seaside resort is about 18 km from the Romanelli family’s trullo. 

The nearest shopping facilities, bars and restaurants are found at Cisternino, about 7 km off. In-between and small shopping can be done at the small grocery store about 3 km off. 

Tip for an excursion: Locorotondo

Locorotondo, the name is based on the small town’s circular shape, is not the town closest to Trullo del Nonno. It is, actually, owner Michela’s favorite place, where, on mild summer evenings, she and her husband Emanuele meet with friends, enjoy the Apulian cuisine and a glass of Negroamaro, stroll through the flower adorned alleys of the borgo, which counts among Italy’s most beautiful towns. Do stop by!

Nearest train station: Cisternino (ca. 7 km).

Der Urlaub hier hat uns sehr gut gefallen: die Landschaft, das Meer, die Unterkunft samt Inhaber! Der Garten des Trullos ist herrlich und die Inhaber ganz herzlich - sie haben uns stets mit frischem Obst versorgt. Wir habenb viele positive Eindrücke gewonnen und kommen gern wieder. Auch wir die Gegend nördlich von Bari sowie die Westküste noch erkunden wollen.

Ein Vorteil der Urlaubsregion ist, dass sie nicht zu touristisch ist. Außerdem gibt es dort viele schöne Städte. Unser Trullo hat uns sehr gefallen! Vor allem die Einrichtung, die Lage und die Ursprünglichkeit waren toll. Wir kommen gerne wieder!

In der Gegend um Ostuni gibt es viele verschiedene Sehenswürdigkeiten und alles ist nah am Meer. Uns hat das Wohnen im Trullo sehr gefallen, genauso wie das tolle Essen und die netten Italiener!!! Wovon wir dagegen nicht so begeistert waren, war der „Italian Style of Driving“! :-) In unserem liebevoll eingerichteten Trullo haben wir uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Unsere Vermieter waren super nett und hilfsbereit. Sogar Mülltrennung war ein Thema. :-) Besondere Erlebnisse hatten wir einige, z.B. Italien bei Regen. :-) Wirklich interessant war, bei einer Olivenernte zuzusehen! Und die Höhlentour in Castellana Grotte war eindeutig das beste Erlebnis für die ganze Familie. Für unser Kind war das Taralli-Gebäck der Hit! Die Anfahrt war gut beschrieben, unser Navi nahm „Cavallerizza“ an! Unser Urlaubsfazit: Wir wollen hier unbedingt auch mal zum Baden herkommen und es gibt noch viel mehr anzusehen. Der nächste Apulien-Aufenthalt ist schon in Planung! :-)
