There are so many reasons to visit Puglia; the white sandy beaches, striking Baroque architecture, beautiful food and the sun of course. And then there's the trulli - these magical, conical houses that look like they've sprung up from the pages of a J.R.R. Tolkien book.

Traditional dry stone huts, these trulli were originally home to the peasant families of the area. Today, they are luxury homes - and you can stay in one! Take Trulli Le Mandorle. This 250-year-old elegantly restored villa, set in 5 acres of peaceful countryside scattered with olive groves and fruit trees, is special indeed.

In keeping with its true form, the owners have managed to retain as many original features as possible, from the high vaulted ceilings to the open fire, alcoves and thick, stone walls. And then they've built a home around it.

The cosy living and kitchen/dining areas are cleverly incorporated into the arched recesses of the building, while two charming bedrooms (one double and one twin/double) are designed for ultimate comfort. It's almost impossible to pull yourself away from this magical little property, until...

...you step outside into the Mediterranean gardens to pick fresh fruit from the bountiful orchards for an al fresco breakfast. Sitting outside, not only can you enjoy your immediate countryside surroundings, there are sweeping views of distant villages in the hills, and a gorgeous new split-depth saltwater pool that adults and kids alike will adore. Here the whole family can enjoy splashing about in the utmost peace, and if you're a couple on honeymoon, you'd be hard pushed to find anywhere quite so romantic.

Once you've had your refreshing dip, try out the hot & cold water shower that's under a 150-year-old ancient olive tree in the garden. Now, there's an experience you won't forget.

All that's left to do is explore the area. Just five miles from the whitewashed town of Ostuni and Martina Franca, and 20 km from the pristine sandy beaches of Villanova, you're spoilt for choice. And if you're not eating out in one of the rustic trattorias or Michelin star restaurants, don't forget to pick up some of the local pasta to make back at the trullo. It's 'orecchiette' and it means 'little ears.' And it's a little treat, just like Trulli le Mandole.

Set in the quaint little village of Pascarosa, Trulli Le Mandorle is perfectly located. Just a 20-minute car journey from the white-washed city of Ostuni with its excellent restaurants - including four Michelin Star ones - stylish bars, rustic trattorias, and striking medieval buildings, including a magnificent central cathedral, you'll spend many a day ambling around its narrow streets.

And, with the picture postcard towns of Alberobello (UNESCO World Heritage site for its vast number of trulli), Locorotondo and Martina Franca, with its Baroque architecture, also close-by, you'll never be short of places to visit.

Owner Profile

How long have you owned the property?
15 years.

What was it about the property that you first fell in love with?
It is set amongst acres of ancient olive trees, figs, almonds, pomegranates, and other fruit trees. Sweeping views of distant hill-town villages can be enjoyed from every window. There is a magical peacefulness of the land and gentle noises of nature. Birds are happy here.

Are there any interesting stories in its history?
The great-great grandfather of the family was one of the founders of Pascarosa; he was of strict religious propensity and quite feared by the villagers as he preached weekly. His name was Alfonso: Pascarosa is now full of inhabitants bearing the same name! 

Have you ever had any famous guests staying?
Rick Stein visited the trullo and this is what he wrote: “My friend Anna Maggio, has bought one just outside Ostuni and renovated it into an amazingly atmospheric house set in an olive grove.” (Rick Stein, Mediterranean Escapes). 

For anyone coming to stay is there anything in the surrounding area they should...
Really do?

Walk around the area, swim (explore the hundreds of tiny coves), go on a boat trip, birdwatch, go to Torre Guaceto (a nature reserve), see ancient olive mills (‘ipogei’: grottos).
Really eat?

Orecchiette con cime di rape, braciole (involtini) al sugo, fiori di zucchine fritte, melanzane ripiene, puntarelle in insalata, rucola con cavatelli, artichokes, caciocavallo, burrata. And lots of fresh local fish.
Really see?

The baroque town of Lecce, Ostuni (the white city), Cisternino, Taranto and its museum, Martina Franca for its architecture and the opera opera under the stars: July/August. 

What insider tip would you pass on about the property or the area?
The small towns are to be explored by walking, marvelling at the baroque facades and enjoying the slow pace of life which still exists here. The food is generally more authentic in small trattorias (not always!), and fish is best eaten by the sea.

    Lovely place, beautifully appointed. Thoroughly enjoying it so far!…

  • Relaxation and happiness!

    on 03/09/2019

    A wonderful week in this beautiful tranquil trullo. I'm leaving totally relaxed and happy. The weather - mostly warm and sunny; the early mornings with the sun coming up were magical, matched by the 7pm sunsets and the rising moon.
    It’s difficult to sound not too enthusiastic, but I do love it here!
    Thank you.
    PS the outdoor shower is perfect!

  • Il Paradiso

    on 31/07/2019

    Where are we going? We left the tarmac road get ago and the dirt track keeps going on and on - then you turn left and up a hill - and then!! Wow: il Paradiso.

  • Beautiful place!

    on 15/07/2019

    Thank you! Such a beautiful place - had an amazing week and really don’t want to leave. So very peaceful, would have loved to check the local pizzeria but sadly didn’t have time.
    We are sad to leave and hope to come back soon.

  • We did not want to leave!

    on 25/05/2019

    A gorgeous week at the trullo. We love wondering around the grounds, play in the pool - and the boys have not wanted to leave. Grazie mille.
