“It's all in the name”
Reviewed 21 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Trullo Tanquillo really is tranquil. We had a fantastic 2 week family holiday here and loved every minute. The Trullo had all the facilities and amenities we wanted, providing us with a very comfortable and relaxing stay. With two bathrooms and an outside shower there was never any squabbling and we had water from the well for our entire stay. We loved sunbathing on the roof terrace, and having a siesta on the sofa in the kitchen, as well as cooking in the evening and enjoying our dinner outside listening to the soothing chirping of the crickets. The Trullo provides a perfect base to explore the beautiful region of Puglia, and also get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. There are lots of lovely places to explore a short drive away, or you can simply explore the Olive groves which surround the Trullo itself. We really couldn't have asked for a better base camp for our Italian adventure. Thank you very much for letting us stay here!

“A nice and quiet base for exploring Puglia”
Reviewed 7 August 2012 for a stay in July 2012

We really liked our stay at Trullo Tranquillo. It can feel as if you're in the middle of nowhere with only the sound of crickets and a slight breeze through the trees, yet everything you need is nearby, including a convenient super market and a great bakery.

We loved the olive trees for their shade (accommodating our hammocks) and the almond and pear trees for their fruit. It's great to be able to eat a sweet pear still warm from the summer sun. Our small children (6 and 3) liked this a lot too.

The trullo is not particularly big, but it's charming, cosy and nicely decorated and has everything you need. The kitchen is not accessible from inside the trullo, which may be less convenient when it's raining, but we were lucky enough to have sunshine almost all the time so it didn't bother us at all. The trullo stays relatively cool and our children liked playing inside during the hottest time of the day.

We found the location of the trullo excellent for exploring the puglia region. Cities like Ostuni, Cisternino, Locorotondo, Martina Franca are all nearby, are worth exploring and offer good restaurants and ice cream. The main touristic highlights of the region such as Alberobello and the Grotte Di Castellana are also very reachable. Polignano a Mare and Lecce are a bit farther but still very doable, especially as a day trip. There is a good selection of beaches within 20 to 30 minutes from the trullo.

We knew there would be no internet access and that was certainly no show stopper for us, given that we were looking for a quiet place. Yet we sometimes missed the ability to quickly look up the address of a recommended restaurant, to check the weather forecast, to look up how far certain points of interest were, etc. I guess we've gotten used to being constantly online...

The owner is very friendly and helpful and does what he can to make sure you have a nice holiday at the trullo. He offers many good tips about restaurants, places to visit, etc.

Overall we highly recommend Trullo Tranquillo if you want a quiet base for exploring Puglia.

I am obviously very sad that the poor wifi situation proved to be such an obstacle to my guest/reviewer's enjoyment of our property. I will ensure that we upgrade the internet considerably taking account of the poor coverage our property has from the conventional mobile telephone- based telephone-based system we have used for several years. I have also asked the team preparing the house to check that crockery and glasses which have been put away in cupboards by previous guests, are properly cleaned, ready for the next guests.
