Trulli di Gennaro is a sleek, contemporary and cutting edge take on an original structure, offering unparalleled rustic charm within comfortable and high-quality finishes, in the heart of Italy’s “heel” - Puglia!

The outdoor spaces at this vibrant home are sublime: arranged over several layers, with separate pavilions, including an outdoor kitchen, dining room and vivacious, elegant lounge.

The glistening pool is framed by elegant stone walls and pristine lawns, overlooked by the gracious pergola, offering shade and tranquillity behind its billowing curtains, sumptuous trellis and chic banquette seating. Surrounded by fragrant jasmine, bursting with luscious, flowering plants, offering a separate dining pavilion for poolside meals, this garden is an oasis of style and tranquillity.

Imagine sitting back and enjoying a local glass of wine and antipasti as the sun softens over the rural landscape, or a continental style breakfast after a refreshing swim: al fresco dining executed at its finest!

The original stone, cone-shaped Trulli structure has a charming, fairy tale appeal to it, with original entry door framed by terracotta plant pots, the building is designed to remain cool in summer and warm in autumn. The interiors are tastefully executed remaining faithful to the original design, offering abundant rustic appeal with a little dash of contemporary finesse!

The palette is earthy and warm, finished with taupes, whites and beiges for a sedate and restful feel: this charming home offers a true escape from the strains of modern living and the bustle of the crowds. The kitchen is bijou and stylish, finished with natural raw materials whilst the living spaces provide graceful comfort very much in tune with the original spirit of the building, with the arched shaped doorways, open fireplace and uncompromising natural finishes: this unique and characterful, historic home is a far cry from an anonymous chain hotel!

Trulli di Gennaro can accommodate four guests across two double bedrooms, finished with a tone understated, discreet luxury! With the quality and finishes a guest would expect to find in a boutique hotel: crisp quality linen, fluffy thick towels.

This Trulli home provides the most of hotel grade quality, within a private home, all the charm of a restored, historical building, finessed with peerless contemporary comforts and discreet luxury!

Nestled a short distance from Castellana Grotte, in the heart of the Puglia countryside. This small town is primarily known for its caves; a key attraction in southern Italy’s natural heritage, set at the mouth of the Itria Valley, close to charming villages such as Alberello, Cisternino and Polignano a Mare. The caves themselves began to form about ninety million years ago. Sixty meters deep, the caves are a mysterious underworld of fossils, stalactites and stalagmites and canyons.

This sumptuous home is in the “heel” of Italy, in the very heart of Puglia with its wonderful soft light and far-reaching horizons; with the Ionian Sea on one side and the Adriatic on the other, there are miles upon miles of golden beaches. The Valle d’Itria is known as being one of the most beautiful areas of Puglia where the cities of Bari and Brindisi can easily be reached.

The region is known for its olive oil production, as evidenced by the surrounding stretches of olive groves as well as its distinctive white-washed hill towns, centuries-old farmland and hundreds of kilometres of Mediterranean coastline.

The capital Bari is a vibrant port and university town, whilst Lecce is the ‘Florence of the south’ - known for its baroque architecture and “Trulli” - stone huts with cone-shaped roofs that were originally homes; today they can be visited in their preserved form, and provide something of a fairy tale-esque experience for younger members of the group!

Trulli di Gennaro is a charming, comfortable home for small families; the gardens are a magical enclave of natural beauty and seclusion, where families can adjust the pace and reconnect away from the strains of modern life.

Babysitting services can be provided for an extra fee; parents may wish to pamper themselves with a chef-prepared meal or a beauty treatment, safe in the knowledge that their little ones are cared for.

Children will enjoy visiting the local caves, with their intriguing history and archaeological preserves, these are one of southern Italy’s key attractions!

Puglia, the “heel” of Italy, is a family-friendly destination; whether it be hilltop or coastal towns, long sandy beaches with clear waters and the beautiful coastline, as well as the sumptuous rustic local cuisine, children will be welcome!

Southern Italians are very family-minded, and highchairs and children’s cutlery will be provided in most restaurants, whilst the piazzas in the evening are full of youngsters roaming and playing together whilst their parents watch on from courtyard al fresco restaurants.

For days out, just a short trip from Bari, families can take advantage of the zoo safari, Fasanolandia. Children will be thrilled to be so close to big cats roaming free, with giraffes bending down to peer into the car windows and monkeys jumping on the bonnet.

For scuba diving and snorkelling, there are multiple water sports centres, including Scuba Diving di Levanto Stefano and Orca Diving. Underwater exploration is so accessible in the calm, warm seas of southern Italy.
