Overview

Pool Beach Nearby Ideal for Kids

Located amidst cherry and olive trees in sweeping Puglian countryside just 4km away from the town of Castellana Grotte you will find Trulli Piovanello. This 19th-century trullo is an incredible home, typical of those found only in this area, and has been lovingly restored to create the perfect blend of old and new.

As you approach this dazzling white home you will see a house of two halves; the restored complex of 5 trulli buildings with their traditional cone-shaped roofs and the adjoining modern extension which is connected via a glass walkway. You will find a spacious living area in the new part of the house, filled with vast windows which flood the interiors with light and garden views. The space has comfortable sofas and a large dining table for enjoying evening meals together. When you wish to retire for the night, you can choose from 3 sophisticated en-suite bedrooms which are located within the trulli part of the house.

The garden is a wonderful oasis in which every detail has been perfectly thought out; from the internal courtyard which houses an ancient olive tree, to the fabulous glass-sided infinity pool. Your party will love spending time outdoors lounging by the poolside or dining al-fresco on the pretty covered terrace.

Despite being set in a rural landscape; the villa is only 4km away from Castellana Grotte which is the nearest town. The town is named after the amazing prehistoric cave network which you can also visit and was once a medieval feudal estate owned by local lords. Lots of the medieval buildings remain, including the town hall and the Santuario Madonna della Vetrana church. You can also follow a walking trail hunting for paintings around the historical back streets. The town is also a great place to pick up some groceries or go for a meal as there is a good selection of shops and restaurants.

If you wish to head to the beach then you will be spoilt for choice, being so close to the sweeping Adriatic Coast. The closest beaches are in Polignano a Mare, which is 15km away and is home to some of Italy’s most beautiful beaches such as the famous Cala Porto, and the quieter swimming spot Lido Cala Paura. The town also has museums, galleries and churches to discover plus a wealth of shops and eateries dotted along the attractive streets.

If you want to explore more of this amazing area then why not visit the trulli town Alberobello or Ancient Monopoli, both just 18km away by car.

Trulli Piovanello is situated in an idyllic rural location close to some incredible towns and some of Italy’s finest beaches. From your base at the villa you will be able to discover the best of Puglia.

Castellana Grotte is the closest town and is just 4km away. With a selection of shops, bars and restaurants this is a great place to visit for your morning coffee or to go shopping for ingredients for dinner. The town also has a charming historical centre filled with medieval buildings which you can visit such as the Chiesa di San Leone Magno which has stood for almost 1000 years. For something a little different you could also try a cookery class locally and learn to prepare some tasty regional dishes.

This area is best known for the enchanting system of caves called Grotte di Castellana which is a mere 5.5km away from the house.  It would be a shame to stay so close and not pay a visit to this amazing attraction. The ancient cave trails continue for miles underground and are filled with fossils and beautiful natural rock formations. There are a few different routes that can be followed through the caves and a tour guide will walk with you to point out interesting details along the way. Make sure to bring a jacket as the temperature dips when you get deeper in o the caves!

Just 15km away from the villa is the picturesque seaside town Polignano a Mare which is where you will find the nearest beaches. There are a number of fantastic beaches along this vast coastline, a great place to start is Cala Porto which is the Bari coast’s most photographed beach and it is easy to see why. This staggeringly beautiful Blue Flag awarded beach is nestled between two limestone cliffs which frame the sparkling sea perfectly.

If you wish to find a quieter spot for a swim then there are lots of other beaches within easy reach, such as Ponte dei Lapilli. After spending time at the beach, head inland and wander around the pretty streets of the town where you can pop into a gallery or museum to avoid the heat of the afternoon. If you are a fan of poetry then look out for the outdoor poetry trail which loops around the town.

Also close by and not as busy as Polignano a Mare is a town called Monopoli which is 18km from the house. Monopolo was initially settled by the ancient Greeks but has been invaded and overtaken many times throughout its fascinating history. You will not fail to notice the vast Castello Carlo V which was built in the 1500s during a period of Spanish occupation. Visitors can explore the castle to see the towers, prison cells and enjoy some amazing sea views! Another local landmark is the ornate Cattedrale Maria Santissima della Madia which is one of the oldest cathedrals in all of Italy and is filled with artwork and intricate carvings. If you stay in Monopoli for dinner, visit the thriving port for some freshly caught seafood.

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

Puglia is a diverse region in Italy’s heel which is ideal for a holiday with children. In this area you can visit family friendly beaches, fabulous towns, cave systems and lush countryside so there is plenty for everyone to see and do.

A great place to start for a day out with children is an attraction which is just 3km away from the house. The dinosaur park is a fun-filled place to take the little ones; this open-air museum is filled with realistic statues of dinosaurs and animals from a number of prehistoric eras. You follow the trail with a guide at first but then you can stay for as long as you like and take part in workshops and lab activities such as making replica fossils, mini archaeological digs and quizzes.

For another memorable day out with the kids why not visit the stunning beaches of Polignano a Mare which is 15km away and take part in a boat trip. Little boats headed by a local skipper will take you on a boat ride down the spectacular Adriatic coastline where you will see cliffs and caves which are only accessible from the sea. Children and adults alike will be awe-struck by the magical grottos and you can all enjoy a refreshing swim or snorkel in the clear waters too. When back on dry land you can grab some delicious gelato from a beach-side café.
