It is a marvelous rural idyll that awaits you here, in the midst of the hilly landscape of Valle d’Itria with its thousands of trulli, the former living quarters of the 19th century farmers.
At restored trullo „La Torretta“, which does not have the typical cone-shaped roof like other trulli, but a cupola-shaped one, you experience relaxing holidays surrounded by olive groves and Mediterranean macchia.
Gorgeous nature is one of the positive aspects of holiday home La Torretta, its location near the white towns of Cisternino and Ostuni (each 8 km off) is another one; with its top furnishing, including dish washer, W-LAN and jacuzzi pool, the holiday home is sure to be the perfect accommodation for your next holidays in Apulia.
The sea with Caribbean blue water and fantastic sandy beaches are only 15 km off.
Friendly owner Serena has turned the once abandoned building into a real paradise. Paying special attention to details in every corner, she succeeded in creating a harmonious and cozy atmosphere without neglecting comfort and without destroying the old charm of the house.
Upon entering you find yourself in the eat-in kitchen, from where you pass through an open doorway into the adjoining cozy living area. The latter includes a fireplace and a sofa, which can be used as a sleeping facility for a child, and opens onto the outdoor area with terrace, jacuzzi and dependence.
The very well appointed kitchen includes 4-burner gas stove, oven, Nespresso coffee machine, refrigerator, dish washer, toaster and water boiler.
From the kitchen area you access the bathroom (shower, WC and bidet) and the bedroom, which is furnished with a double bed and a sofa bed (sleeping facility for another child). The bedroom opens onto the terrace.
Upon request, the owner provides a children’s cot and a high chair for very young guests.
The dependance, which is located behind the jacuzzi pool, accommodates two further guests and includes a double bed, a bathroom with shower and air conditioning with integrated heating as well as a terrace with sunbeds and hammock. "La Torretta" might, therefore, be ideal for couples who wish to spend their holidays together.
Serena always seems to come up with good ideas, such as turning the ancient „palmento“, the basin where the grapes used to be crushed, into a 2.5 x 2.5 m whirlpool, which is open from end of April to end of September (changes due to weather conditions possible).
On the terrace, which is shaded by olive trees and bamboo, garden furniture and sunbeds are at your disposal.
La Torretta includes washing machine, dish washer, W-LAN, fireplace and gas heating in the main building, air conditioning with integrated heating in the dependance, fly screens, grill and hair dryer.
Parking is available on the premises of the holiday home.
Nothing but fields and magnificently lush green olive groves and across the country lane „La Casa del Pastore“, another holiday home of owner Serena – that is how you could describe the nearer surroundings of holiday home „La Torretta“.
The nearest shops and restaurants are found at Casalini, a small town 3 km off. At Locanda del Ristoro, for example, they serve typically local dishes for reasonable prices.
The sea with many sandy beaches, both free and with service (lidi), is ca. 15 km off.
La Toretta is only about 8 km from the towns of Cisternino and Ostuni, where you can go for strolls within white walls and through ancient alleys.
Our restaurant tip: „L’Osteria del Tempo Perso“ at Ostuni in Via Gaetano Tanzarella Vitale 47 (restaurant in a grotto in the maze of alleys above the cathedral). Prior reservation of a table is strongly recommended (telephone: 0039 0831 304819).
