Our Fairytale Stay in a Trullo in Italy

You already know that Italy is my favorite European country and I always search for a new reason to revisit it. Sure the most amazing pasta is already the perfect reason, but this time we found an even better one. Three weeks ago we had the luck of staying in our very own trullo in the Puglia Region, between Ostuni and Alberobello, and we had a magical experience. It has been on my bucketlist since forever and Trullo Arancio was the perfect choice!

Happy to introduce to you I Sette Coni B&B situated in the heart of the Trulli Land. Here you can fulfill your dream of sleeping and living in your very own trullo. We chose Trullo Arancio, but there are three more trulli to choose from: Edera, Lavanda and Dépendance.

 These cute little houses are perfect for a dreamy Italian getaway for you and your family and they are fully equipped with everything you need for the most pleasant stay.

Typical stone walls, cute cones, enchanting nature and friendly hosts. The list can go on and on and on: peaceful mornings, amazing views, tasty breakfast, focaccia to die for. No, I am not exaggerating at all. I promise you will find all that if you decide to pay them a visit.

Anna and her mother were the cutest hosts and helped us with everything we needed, including our dream to have breakfast on top of a trullo. Anna recommended us restaurants to eat, places to visit and was kind enough to chat with us about history, traditions, cooking skills, decorations, travels etc.

Welcome to our Trullo Arancio, the cute stone house that hosted us for three nights. To be honest, it felt like home and we would have totally stayed longer.

Even though you expect something small, Trullo Arancio can accommodate up to 4-5 people. You have an open area consisting of a fully equipped kitchenette and living room area with a sofa, one bedroom with double bed, one bedroom with two single beds and one bathroom. For sunny days, you have a big terrace at your disposal right in front of the trullo where you can enjoy breakfast or relax.

The coolest part is that Trullo Arancio is an original trullo which was recently renovated by Anna and decorated in the most beautiful way. What I loved the most was her attention to detailsnatural materials: stone, massive wood, iron; recycled interior pieces and refurbished old furniture. As a plus, local artisans helped Anna create this fairytale accommodation.

 

I Sette Coni B&B can offer you breakfast on request and believe me you are going to love it. We were spoiled by Anna and had breakfast in her kitchen every morning. Well, not only in the kitchen, but even on top of a trullo. Hard to top that breakfast spot, right?

Italian meat and cheese selection, freshly baked croissants & bread, tasty ingredients from Anna’s parents garden: eggs and fruit: strawberries, peaches.  One morning, Anna even prepared fresh focaccia for us with cherry tomatoes and olives. Yummy!!

 

On our second day we found out that Anna’s sister even organizes Italian cooking classes at I Sette Coni B&B and I wish we had the time to participate. If you are interested, be sure to ask Anna in advance.

 

PS: If you learn how to cook that tasty focaccia, don’t forget to bring me some! I am craving!

 

I Sette Coni B&B is set in a peaceful location, in the Italian countryside, offering an amazing scenery. You are literarily in the middle of nature and everything around you is green. This is why I totally recommend you to come here and relax. You will feel like the time has stopped for a while. Anna’s horses are roaming free in front of you and you have baldachins and even a tree house at your disposal.

I Sette Coni B&B is located in the Puglia Region of Italy, a few kilometers away from a charming little town called Cisternino, between Alberobello, Martina Franca and Ostuni. Its position makes it the best place to explore the area. From Bari Airport you have around 90 km.

The best way to arrive to I Sette Coni is by car, but renting a car in Italy is cheap and useful. We rented ours directly from Bari Airport for around 11 Eur/day. 

 

As I said about, the location is perfect for exploring the area. Bellow I will quickly mention the places we visit on our holiday:

         Cisternino – the closest town – a charming place where you can try amazing local food. If you are a meat lover, I recommend Trattoria Bere Vecchie;

         Polignano a Mare – must be on your list for Puglia, probably one of the most beautiful places in the area. We went there twice in four days, that is how much we liked it;

         Alberobello – No introduction is needed for the trulli town. Be sure to go there early if you want to have the place for yourself. After 10 am tourist busses arrive and it can get quite crowded;

         Monopoli – cute colorful town where we had dinner one of the evenings with live music and great local wine;

         Ostuni or the White CitySo happy we managed to check it out before leaving for our next destination. This area is renewed for its ceramics. I wish I could have bought all those plates and bowls.

         Matera Even though we had a rainy moody day in Matera, we fell in love with this beautiful historical city. We even found a delicious Sushi PlaceRisto Fuji.

This being said, I hope I have convinced you that staying in a trullo is a true bucketlist experience. While Alberobello is the most renowned place for its trulli, I Sette Coni B&B offers you a peaceful green location close to everything you need to see and with smaller prices.

I really dream about taking our kids to I Sette Coni B&B one day so they can see the trulli land as well. I am sure they will fell in love as we did!

PS: I almost forgot to tell you that Trullo Edera was the most wishlisted Airbnb property of the world and the most popular one. Also Trullo Lavanda was listed as one of the 10 Airbnbs that are straight out of Game of Thrones. How awesome is that?

Love,
