Beneath the two large and the two small coni of Trullo Caliandro – that is what the characteristic cone-shaped roofs of the trulli are called – family di Bari has created a cozy holiday accommodation for three persons. The completely renovated, former dwelling of plain, rural Apulian people is surrounded by ca. 6,000 m² fenced premises, on which olive and fruit trees grow.
Caliandro is the name of this picturesque region near the Baroque town of Martina Franca. Trulli mark the landscape; the picturesque towns of Valle d’Itria, such as Cisternino, Locorotondo and Alberobello, are worthwhile destinations for cultural and culinary excursions. Look forward to spending interesting holidays at Trullo Caliandro.
Due to the special architecture and strong stone walls, temperatures inside the holiday home are always pleasant. In spring, the cozy warmth of the fireplace is kept inside, in summer, the inside remains pleasantly cool.
Besides an open live-and-eat-in kitchen with TV, Trullo Caliandro includes a bedroom with double bed as well as a modern bathroom with WC, bidet, shower cabin and washing machine.
The small kitchenette is furnished with electric stove, oven and refrigerator with freezer compartment. The cozy inside of the trullo includes a dining area, a sofa bed for a possible third person, two cantilever chairs and a fireplace.
The holiday home is also furnished with fly screens and WiFi. Several parking spaces are available on the fenced premises; a car is absolutely necessary when you stay at Trullo Caliandro.
The terrace surrounding the holiday home is paved on two sides, partly roofed and furnished with a table and chairs as well as sun beds.
Living out-of-doors, enjoying the view across Valle d’Itria and grilling – simply perfect. Located somewhat apart from the sea, it is not seafood that characterizes the cuisine at Martina Franca, but good and solid dishes like Polpette, Salsiccia, Capocollo & Co.
Owner Antonio is a great fan of tennis and table tennis; that is why a pong-pong table is a must at his trullo. So have a go at a game of table tennis every now and then.
Of course, you should not miss out on going to the seaside during your holidays at Trullo Caliandro. There are wonderful sandy beaches and bays along the Adriatic coast between the towns of Torre Canne and Torre Guaceto, which are only ca. 20 km off. The dunes of the marine reserve are well-known far beyond Apulia, bathing pleasure is guaranteed!
At Martina Franca, its town center is about 5 km from Località Caliandro, there are various shopping facilities and several bars and restaurants. And, every Wednesday morning is Martina Franca’s market day. The market takes place in front of Hotel San Michele in Viale Carella.
Besides Lecce, Martina Franca is an important center of the Apulian Baroque. An evening stroll through the atmospherically illuminated centro storico with its bright façades gives rise to a Southern Italian way of life feeling. From mid July to beginning of August, the Festival della Valle d’Itria, a festival of opera and classical music, takes place there.
Martina Franca offers delights not only for your eyes and ears, but also for your palate. The town has been known for its Capocollo since the 18th century. The smoked salume is marinated in grape must and then seasoned with Murgia herbs. Since 2000, Capocollo has been Slow Food protected. Those keen on more information and gourmets are always welcome at the producers’ onsite, where, of course, you can also taste the salume.
