“In countryside near Fasano, this restored boutique trullo has 3 bedrooms, a pool and fabulous views of Puglia’s Adriatic coast (sleeps 4-6)”
From the flat coastal plains of the Valle d’Itria, a steep drive limbers up to the house, with its 4 distinctive trulli cones – a curious vernacular feature unique to this region. Inside, restful living spaces and 3 bedrooms (2 double, 1 twin) blend contemporary furniture with the pale greys and sun-bleached limestone of original stonework. French windows open onto a Mediterranean-style herb garden, planted with lemons and beds of scented lavender. On an upper terrace, there is a pool and lawns that merge into olive groves.
Enjoy the rich local cuisine of Puglia - home to Italy’s finest pastas and olive oil, alongside fresh-caught fish and luscious red wines. Sleep under a barrel-vaulted trullocone. Relax under a pergola on a cool alfresco sofa. You will never tire of the million-dollar views.
- The combination of quirky trullo architecture and stylish modern design is beautifully done
- Gorgeous outdoor living spaces - including a kitchen, dining area and glamorous sea-view lounge
- Private pool terrace with sun-loungers on clipped lawns and a hammock slung between olive trees
- Close to Puglia’s must-see towns and villages: Cisternino, Ostuni, Alberobello and Polignano a Mare, among others
- Great value, especially if you fill it
- You’ll need a car – or a bike – just for essentials: Fasano’s shops and restaurants are close but it’s a bit too far to walk (5km)
- The house is out-of-the-way but not entirely private: you share a drive with a neighbouring property
- Rentals run strictly from Saturday to Saturday (a 7-night minimum stay)

The house is planned around a central living-dining space, which leads into 3 bedrooms and an open-plan kitchen. Two of the bedrooms are doubles (one with an ensuite shower room), the third is a twin, and all are set inside a trullo cone. They are on the small side, but cosy and well-planned, with plenty of storage space (antique chests and curtained hanging space), luxury linen on queensize beds, a generous supply of towels (including pool towels) and high pointy ceilings to gaze at. There is also a luxurious family bathroom with a shower over a deep square bath lined with mosaics.
The living room is light and spacious, furnished with a big comfy sofa, a cow-hide rug on a polished stone floors, and Italian glass and pottery set into niches or on neat shelves. There's a wood-burning stove for chilly winter evenings.

The sleek indoor kitchen has cream-coloured cupboards and worktops arranged under the dome of a trullo roof, and is equipped with an American-style fridge-freezer, microwave, toaster, dishwasher and washing machine. As well as a welcome pack of basics (milk, water and snacks), it’s stocked with oil and seasonings, and there are fresh fruits and herbs in the garden. With advance notice, you can book a convenient shopping service (particularly useful for late arrivals).
The outdoor kitchen is equally impressive, with a gas hob, barbecue and sink alongside a huge stone dining table, set on a shaded patio with enough room to seat 6 in comfort.
The owners have compiled a handy list of local restaurants, but those who’d rather stay put can hire the service of a chef who will whip up a 5-course Pugliese dinner while you sit on the terrace sampling the region’s excellent wines.
