“Stunning, Characterful Place - The Real Italy !”
Reviewed 25 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

This is a beautiful, immaculate and luxurious residence that my family of five children, age 14 to 21 just loved. From the grand entrance gates to the large immaculate terraced gardens and stunning pool area, the whole place exudes luxury. Basically the small individual trulli buildings house the bedrooms and , as seems common in the region a new extension houses large open plan living space.This is a flat roof building with steps onto the roof to offer wide reaching panoramic views. There are two lovely shaded area structures well built, the one near the pool has a great fridge incorporated for drinks.

The house is situated in a secluded and quiet farming type area made up of similar freestanding houses dotted around the countryside, many other Trullis and small towns/villages with simple shops. You will hear distant farm machinery and chain saws and the off noisy motorcycle/scooter but apart from that peaceful.

Enrica from the holiday agency TRULLI & DIMORE IMMOBILIARE was just first class, from initial exchange of emails setting things up, through to meeting her to show us the property, show us the local stores and sort out deposits. She is a superb asset to that company and the all important contact during your holiday.

Nearby we drove the short distance toi Monopoli which is a beautiful very Italian place, indeed we did not see any English tourists, and believe the region is generally populated in the summer months by Italian tourists. There are a few bars and clubs in Monopoli but not many.

So we were most impressed by the house and the place and would definately look to return. Below I outline a few points that may be worth noting;-

1.0 Clearly you will need a car to stay here
2.0 If you want nightclubs/nightlife, this probably isnt the place for you
3.0 Taxis are few and far between and after midnight dont run (Despite info to the contrary from the Monopoli tourist office)
5.0 The bedrooms are interlinked due to nature of the Trulli built form, this makes privacy impossible for all but one of the rooms. As a family not a big issue but for a mixed party not ideal.
6.0 Whilst I highlighted the "luxury" feel of the place, most/all furnishing is IKEA.
7.0 Storage and hanging space in bedrooms is limited.
8.0 Kitchen could be much better stocked with utensils, with very few kitchen knives, no kettle or toaster.
9.0 Disabled movement through the building would be possible with single steps to many areas from outside and level drop off, but not to all areas. Doors from outside to two of the rooms eases direct access to bedrooms and threshold to living area is level. However Pool area is accessed by quite a number of steps. These are a nice width of step that make access possibly for ambulant disabled possible.
10.0 Note of warning the handrail around the flat roof is NOT particularly secure, very bouncy and below required heights under building code. Worth keeping children away from this roof.
11.0 Upon arrival you will have to pay what I believe to be a large fee for cleaning. This is something I have never been asked for before renting property but it seems is normal here.
12.0 Also note the deposit is asked for in cash. Note nearest cashpoint was very hard to find!

So all in all we were very happy, and the above points were insignificant to us but hopefully of help to others. I would recommend striongly this place.
