During a recent trip to Italy, we stayed in the Puglia Resort in Alberobello. This resort consists of genuine truilli- small, limestone houses that were built in the 13/14th Centuries and it was just like living in history, but with a very modern twist. Our truillo boasted all 21st C mod cons and was tastefully decorated in a style that, though modern, complemented the lovely little house and made us feel that we were really living in history, but in such comfort!
The truillo was situated in the old city and Mariano, our host, was so welcoming and made us feel so at home when he introduced us to our triullo and also to the old city, of which he is so proud.
We so enjoyed being a part of history. These beautifully kept little houses with their rich history are thankfully millions of miles from the slickness of a chain hotel and really added to the enjoyment of our time in the Alberobello area. more
