Super trullo, emplacement idéal et magnifique et très bien équipé. Nous avons passé un merveilleux séjour et nous reviendrons sans hésiter dès que possible!

Superbe. Cette location remplit toutes les promesses de l’annonce! Emplacement idéal, confort et accompagnement. Nous allons regretter ce petit coin de paradis !

Great place to stay. Very quiet and tranquil. The views of the sunset each evening were amazing. The trullo was very well equipped. Leandro was our concierge and he checked in with us about 4-5 times whilst we stayed, just to check if everything was ok or if we needed anything. About 15 drive to Alberobello which have around 1000 Trulli’s. The beaches and Polignano a mare are about 45mins drive.



If you’re looking for calm, serenity and authenticity, trullo Badessa is the right place! Offering a picturesque view on gorgeous natural reserve of Apulia, the trullo is standing on a little hill among the olive trees. It is spacious, renovated, equipped with all the modern facilities inside as well as outside. WiFi is functional. We enjoyed both the shadow on the covered terrace and the sun on the swimming pool area. Pool is regularly controlled and cleaned! Not very big, it is nevertheless enough to get refreshed and have fun. Badessa is situated 10 minutes drive from the village of Alberobello, known for its trullos site. Charming little towns Locorotondo and Martina Franca are as well of an easy reach. So, car is a must. Special thanks to Massimo and Leandro for being so helpful and efficient to solve the problem of electricity due to heavy rainstorm. We also appreciate the warm welcome and availability of Antonella for whatever questions. Pasta master class at home, given by restaurant owners, was a lot of fun! Wine from the region , a bottle of olive oil and different kinds of local delicacies were generously offered us on arrival! Thank you, for all your assistance and attention, that made us enjoy our holidays! Highly recommend!



We had a wonderful stay at Trullo Badessa. We were two couples and the Trullo is perfect size for 4 adults. The swimming pool is a great feature, and was bigger than expected. The Trullo is in a rural setting, with a few farm houses down the road, but its at the end of the road, so it feels very private. The kitchen was well equipped and the outside bbq was easy to use, and wood and coal was provided. But beyond the house, was the staff of Puglia Paradise. Leandro was fantastic! Easy to get hold of, he provided information on what to see and answered out questions quickly. He even went out of his way to help us with an issue we had with our rental car.

Trullo Badessa. We stayed here in June/July 2019 for two weeks. The villa is located in the countryside with lovely views. The villa is a tastefully renovated Trullo and is lovely. It is clean, comfortable and makes a great place to relax. The booking and check in process was simple.



We stayed in the fantastic Trullo Badessa in June this year (2 people, 2 weeks) and would definitely recommend it to those looking for peace and tranquility. Just a 10 minute drive from Alberobello, the well appointed trullo is located at the end of a farm track and enjoys superb views across the Puglian countryside, which can be enjoyed from the (very welcome) pool, or over a glass of wine from the outdoor terrace. The property is very private, clean and well presented, with every amenity you could need (and bicycles if you're feeling energetic). We were welcomed and assisted by Leandro, who was very helpful without being instrusive, and the location is ideal for exploring Puglia, Basilicata and Calabria.

Un sublime havre de paix! Niché dans la campagne de la Vallée D'Itria, nous avons suivi un chemin de terre pour arriver et découvrir ce super Trullo et sa vue incroyable! Aucun vis-à-vis et un horizon à perte de vue, sans parler des étoiles la nuit! Le trullo était très spacieux (nous étions 3), propre et très bien équipé! Nous avons été accueillis par Leandro qui a été génial, à l'écoute, disponible et de bons conseils. Ce fut une expérience incroyable de loger dans un trullo tout en profitant du confort moderne. De plus, la localisation nous a permis de rayonner facilement dans les villes avoisinantes. Nous reviendrons sans hésiter!

Очень удобно и тихо для путешественников с автомобилем, очень красивый вид, 2 ванные комнаты, отзывчивый помошник, который готов на любую помощь и всегда на связи. Берите и не думайте!!!

We stayed at Trullo Badessa for a lovely week in the countryside equidistant from Alberobello and Locorotondo. The Trullo is on a working farm and commands fantastic views over the surrounding countryside. The sunsets are fantastic as the western horizon is so far away. Outside are two patios, one under a verandah for eating and the other given shelter by a tall tree for much of the day. Inside the kitchen is well equipped and big enough for two of you to prepare a meal together. Both bathrooms are pretty as are the two bedrooms and living room. The whole Trullo was spotlessly clean when we arrived and the welcome hamper was plentiful with enough for dinner, breakfast, a few snacks and a bottle of wine. They even include a bag of charcoal for the barbecue. Best of all was Grazia, our host, who looked after us beautifully. She answered every request for advice or help immediately at pretty much any time of day and was happy to book restaurants, tours and tell you where to go or where to shop. She made us feel extremely welcome and was the extra bit of polish great service delivers. In all, a beautiful and relaxing place to stay with great customer service.

Perfect Holiday Location ! We stayed here as a family - with my wife and 2 sons. Beautiful views and lots of space. The swimming pool is very nice and cleaned every day. Live like a king inside the Trullo Bedrooms. We went to the beach in the mornings and liked to hang around the property in the afternoon as it is nice and cool with breeze as it is located on a hill. Very professional service - our plane arrived late but the owner and hosts were always very responsive. This is a 5 star unconditional rating. Our only ask is that if you book this you take care of the cats that drop by every so often and make sure they are fed !

Samantha D.


Personalised service with the utmost quality. Highly recommended! Massimo made our stay in Puglia comfortable and pleasant! He contacted me prior to my arrival via email with information regarding our accommodation location, his personal mobile phone number, and any additional information we might need. On arriving he was already waiting for us on site, he was extremely friendly and helpful, always ready to help us out during our stay, and very happy to give us any advice when asked. Can't wait to use these guys' services again! A+++

Vacanza Indimenticabile. Io, mia moglie ed altri 3 amici abbiamo trascorso una settimana nel Trullo Badessa. È stata un’esperienza meravigliosa. Il trullo è frutto di un restauro conservativo che, preservandone la struttura originale, ha saputo trasformarlo in un ambiente molto elengante e dotato di ogni confort. Per sua natura la struttura rimane molto fresca anche nelle giornate di piena estate e se non dovesse bastare la piscina all’esterno, anche se piccola, assolve pienamente alla sua funzione. Una menzione speciale va fatta al nostro host, Leandro, che ci ha accolto e seguito durante il nostro soggiorno. Estremamente preciso ha saputo rispondere sempre puntualmente ad ogni nostra richiesta risolvendo tempestivamente anche un paio di imprevisti. Non possiamo che ringraziarlo ancora una volta pubblicamente. In conclusione non possiamo che consigliare a tutti l’esperienza con Puglia Paradise e speriamo di poter tornare presto.

A beautiful trullo, brilliant staff and a wonderful trip. Our stay in Trullo Badessa went above and beyond our expectations. On arrival, we were greeted by property manager Leandro, who showed us around the beautiful home and had left a selection of food and drinks to welcome us with. Throughout our stay, he was available to contact, always replying quickly to give us recommendations of beaches or restaurants. He even brought round 3 fans after we felt slightly hot during the night! The property looks like it does in the photos, but is even more stunning and the serene surroundings are ideal. The only time we were disturbed during our stay was by the two cats that liked to come visit! Overall, I am thrilled that we picked to stay at Trullo Badessa as it made our trip to Puglia relaxing, fun and unforgettable. I would love to come back next year!

I rented this Trullo for a week during the summer and stayed there with my wife and three daughters. From the very first moment of arrival at the Trullo we felt like it was our home. The beautiful bedrooms and convenient kitchen and bathrooms made our stay perfect. On top of that we had the most beautiful view from the terrace and from the swimming pool. Everything that you can think of was available in the house. Even towels for the pool. Also the service from Puglia paradise was perfect. Grazia helped us very good with ordering pizza’s and also arranged a doctor’s visit. But the best was that the grocery’s for the first day were already arranged. We could start relaxing at once !!

Boendet och omgivningarna motsvarade våra förväntningar. Vi hade härliga dagar tillsammans i det fina boendet och med närhet till många små orter i vackra Puglia. Härligt med poolen och solstolarna. Framförallt fick vi hjälp med allt vi ville och behövde av uthyrarens kontakt.

The pool makes a great addition and is the perfect size for cooling off from the midday sunshine if you're spending a day lounging at the villa. The views from Trullo Badessa are simply captivating - even more perfect when accompanied by an aperol spritz or two at sunset. The villa is really well situated for exploring Puglia and we enjoyed many day trips to different towns and beaches in the surrounding area. We loved staying here and would come back in a heartbeat - can't recommend it highly enough. Huge thank you to Leandro and the rest of the team at Puglia Paradise for a dreamy holiday.

Fantastic company, very helpful, trustworthy and reliable. We booked a Trullo direct with Puglia Paradise who could not have been more helpful. The following is the review of our stay at Trullo Badessa. Stay and fall in love with the truly wonderful Trullo Badessa We arrived up a quiet country lane to a warm welcome with a care pack of food, water and wine, thank you! Trullo Badessa is just as the pictures show it; beautiful, immaculate, traditional and the restoration is stunning. All rooms and the kitchen are large and comfortable, so with two bathrooms and it being very well equipped with brilliant wifi for searching trips and localities, it’s a true home from home but better! The grounds, bbq, outdoor dining, pool and loungers serve perfectly for a full days’ & nights’ relaxing. (We stayed all day on Sunday and then went into Alberobello at 5pm which worked well as it was much quieter and more Italian! We also had a couple evenings of outdoor dining at the trullo!) You really could live here! The views are breath-taking. Completely surrounded by idyllic countryside, not overlooked and so utterly peaceful. If you wanted to you could spend days just walking or cycling on well-marked paths and empty lanes or ride in nearby stables; the surroundings are so quiet you might not pass another car or see another person! Yet it is perfectly located for the Valle d’Itria and the towns within this beautiful area. Travelling out for less than an hour away to Castellana caves, Matera, Ostuni, Bari, Taranto etc. Alberobello is minutes away as is Martina Franca and country eateries, vin yards and olive farms. Fully supported by local, extraordinarily helpful staff, (thank you so much!) We would say the trullo is suitable for any age and ability, families, singles, couples and anyone who wants total escapism and/or to explore this wonderful part of Italy! It’s so lovely you won’t want to leave; we didn’t! This really is a perfect place to stay in this wonderful part of Puglia! Fantasico! Grazie Mille!

Séjour inoubliable dans les Pouilles. Nous avons séjourné au Trullo Badessa durant 3 semaines. Que dire? Tout était parfait. Le Trullo récemment rénové, offre Confort et commodités. Un panier de bienvenue bien garni nous attendait avec tout le nécessaire pour 2 repas. Bien situé, en campagne, près de plusieurs villes. Leandro, notre contact, était toujours disponible pour répondre à nos besoins et nos questions et d'une grande gentillesse. Je recommande fortement et sans hésitations le Trullo Badessa!

Central location, comfortable and roomy, country setting. For my wife and me, this was a perfect home for several days. It could host up to 4 people comfortably, and maybe 6 in a squeeze. 2 bathrooms, one with shower the other with modern tub. We travelled here from Matera, 1h 15 minutes. The house is within 20 minutes country drive to Alberobello. It takes less than 30 minutes drive to Locorotondo, Cisternino and Martina Franca. 40 minutes to Ostuni. These are all towns you probably want to visit. The house is modern with a well equipped kitchen, nice bedrooms with comfortable beds, great outdoor space with a pool, nice lounge chairs, a large outdoor dining table and chairs and a BBQ that we used. The views and ambiance are exceptional. The property is well managed and we experienced that they will help you with whatever you need.

Quiet stay in a beautiful trullo. We loved Trullo Badessa (and it is listed by name on Google maps). It is a beautifully restored trullo located out in the country in an olive orchard, but still convenient to amenities. Puglia was a great place to relax after a busy week in Rome and Sorrento, and the villa is just a few minutes easy drive to Martina Franca, Locorotondo, and Alberobello, where you can easily find grocery stores and restaurants (and gelato, of course). We also visited Matera, Lecce, Monopoli, and Ostuni to tour an ancient family olive farm. We were within 90 minutes scenic driving of everything we wanted to see. The villa has very comfortable beds, heated stone floors (which we loved), fully equipped kitchen, an outdoor oven/grill, a pool, and a fireplace (wood supplied), and our early season visit had beautiful weather with sunny days and cool nights. We were very happy to have the washing machine and dishwasher. Leandro was always available and took great care of us, and we will definitely stay again on our next trip to Italy. Be sure to make time to sit in the sun out on the veranda, sip some Limoncello, and just enjoy beautiful, pastoral, Puglia.

A gorgeous little home away from home!!!! A marvellous place to stay! I loved Trullo Badessa the moment I set my eyes on it. The trullo is expertly converted to extremely highly quality finishing standards. There's underfloor heating, which is fantastic, the kitchen is FULLY equipped, even has a dishwasher, extremely comfortable and efficient oven, and all the kitchen utensils and cutlery you would need to cook a full meal. The beds are comfortable, the pull out couch extremely easy to use and open/close. All linens/towels were spotless. The wifi and TV services were very fast and dependable. The outdoor area is absolutely fantastic with a pool, large entertaining area, and a wood fire stove/bbq which we actually used twice during our stay! Location is great! You would need a private car to get there of course, but the trullo itself is situated in the countryside between Alberobello and Martina Franca, only about ten minutes away! The surrounding area is beautiful, green and very tranquil, perfect views for a relaxing, stress free holiday! Would I recommend Trullo Badessa? In a heartbeat! Can't wait for my next visit!!

A bit of laid back paradise in Puglia! My friend and I spent 5 days in this trullo and we loved it! The view is beautiful: overlooking the valley. And the surroundings were so picturesque: olive trees, pomegranate trees, almond trees, rosemary bushes, and Podolica cows. There is a small pool, but we were there in October and it was too cool to use. But we LOVED the fireplace and the wood provided -- it was wonderful to have a fire at night! It was so cozy. We loved the renovation of the trullo, and the kitchen was great. The trullo was located far off the road, up through a working farm, which was part of its charm. The people that rented it were so responsive -- they were there to help us in any way possible. Leandro was our "person on the ground" and he could not have been nicer! We were within driving distance of so many places of interest: Matera, Alberobello, Locorotundo, Martina Franca . . . I think I could have happily spent a month or more here!

Suzanne T.


We were very pleased by the perfect and personal service of Leandro and Massimo. The house is a relaxing place, with lot of attention for details and ambiance. It is well situated with beautiful villages around. We were with 5 persons, but we think a stay with 4 persons is a better idea, although it is possible to stay with 6 persons. We appreciated the welcome gifts (a lot of fruits, things to cook, wine, water and milk)! The veranda of the house is a nice place to sit, with a great view and a peaceful, quiet surrounding. We visited Alberobello, Locorotondo and Cisternino: good places to hang around, but it is also possible to visit Lecce and Matera (we did and we liked it a lot). For us it is a place to book again!

Very Nice holiday in a charming Trulli ! We stayed for 2 weeks and we had a wonderful experience of the Puglia. The house is less than 45 min driving of the main sites to visit. So we had a high pleasure and took advantage of the house and the area : Alberobello, Martina Franca, Ostuni, Polignano a mare, Bari, Matera (1 hour), Adriatico and Ionico seas... So we could easily go and visit all around. The house is charming, beautiful, comfortable, well renovated, very clean. Housekeepers come every week to clean and change the house linen.The scenery is amazing (180 ° view) and we were happy to refresh ourselves and have fun in the swimming pool. As the house is in the countryside, it was also for us a great familial moment, all together. Massimo and Marika were very attentionned to our needs and they were very helpful to all our araising questions. So we warmly recommand the "puglia paradise" site and the house to everybody interesed in travelling in the Puglia.

Location perfetta per una vacanza di relax. Ho trascorso con la mia famiglia una bellissima settimana in questo trullo immerso nel verde della val d'itria. Il trullo è stato recentemente ristrutturato, le stanze sono pulitissime e fornite di ogni comfort. La cucina è completa di lavastoviglie, tostapane, bollitore, forno, anche se noi abbiamo cucinato spesso utilizzando il barbeque in cortile! La piscina è perfetta per chi ha bambini al di sotto dei quattro anni (come noi). Essendo rialzata non poteva essere raggiunta senza l'aiuto di un adulto, questa cosa ci ha garantito serenità per tutto il tempo trascorso a trullo badessa. La gestione della casa è stata impeccabile, discreta ma attentissima alle nostre esigenze. Consigliatissimo!

Beatrice M.


Abbiamo affittato un trullo a metà luglio. Posto incantevole, dintorni meravigliosi, accoglienza impeccabile. I ragazzi dell'agenzia sono stati presenti senza mai essere invadenti, il nostro alloggio (trullo badessa) era curato in ogni minimo dettaglio. Consigliatissimo

Amber D.


Fabulous Stay at the magical Trullo Badessa! Arrived at the trullo on Friday morning and was immediately struck by the beautiful scenery and peaceful surroundings. The views from Trullo Badessa are absolutely breathtaking! The house is in itself a testament to the excellent craftsmanship of the region. From the doors and windows to the colorful handmade tiles in the main bedroom, every inch has an impeccable attention to detail. The roaring fireplace and the pizza oven were an excellent surprise making our stay all the more magical. While this winter stay was perfect, I look forward to visit Trullo Badessa again in the summer months to enjoy the land and the sunshine :)

Magia in Martina Franca. Ho avuto il grandissimo piacere di stare in questa oasi per tre (troppo corte, ma indimenticabile) giorni. Dalla cucina carina e camere da letto in stile shabby-chic, e le comodissime camere da bagno moderne, fino alla splendida vista Pugliese che circonda la bellisima Badessa - tutto è meraviglioso, come in un libro delle favole. Basta solo guardare le foto, e fare una riservazione! 😊

Vanessa K.


Perfect house and support! Trullo Badessa was perfect for our new year holiday. We (5) spent there 6 days in such a lovely countryside. We visited Martina Franca, Alberobello and Monopoli; they are so wonderful! Massimo was a great help with his suggestions about restaurants and things to see. We are now planning to come back in Puglia in June or July.
