A very clean Trullo with excellent outdoor amenities. The accommodation suited the needs of our family of six very well. The host is friendly and extremely helpful. Definitely recommend staying here.
This trulli villa is amazing - within walking distance of the beautiful town of Martina Franca. The pool is fantastic and surrounded by a beautiful mediterranean garden.The covered sitting and dining areas really add to your comfort in the hot sun. Local representative is really accommodating and helpful. Wonderful relaxing luxurious holiday!
Best of both worlds. Porta Blu is a Trulli complex with space and light, with easy access to town and country, where we were able relax, or go exploring. We really enjoyed our stay. Although we used the house as a base for seeing a bit of Puglia, we also spent a lot of time relaxing in & by the pool, lounging on the outdoor couches, or sitting around the big table chatting. (Face one way, and view rolling countryside, and gorgeous Puglian dry stone walls, or the other and check out Martina Franca.) We used the excellent (easy to get going, use, and clean) BBQ several times. There’s plenty of crockery and glasses, and the kitchen is adequately equipped, but could do with a couple of good quality chopping knives. I really appreciated the espresso machine. The beds were very comfortable, the sheets soft, and the whole place was spotless when we arrived. The showers were good, although a bit slow to get going (and work better if you slightly stagger shower times). We walked into Martina Franca centre for dinner several times. It’s a short (20 mins) but not very pleasant walk as the road is a bit too fast. We carried torches at night and walked single file. I would not walk with children. It’s very easy to drive to the edge of town (3 mins), where you can park fairly easily, and walk from there (5 mins to winding streets and lots of restaurants). Leandro (along with the rest of the team at Puglia Paradise) was brilliant: professional, friendly, really helpful (going out of his way more than once). Thanks again Leandro!
Loved this beautiful villa. Pool and lounging area outside is great (amazing sunsets). Plenty of seating. The bedrooms are also great and the kitchen is well equipped. The staff (Leandro) was very very helpful and gave us all the information we needed. Location is also great. 15 mins walk from Martina along a road which is fine during the day but a little scary in the dark. I would love to go back to this villa and highly recommend Trullo Porta Blu
A True Paradise! We had an incredible stay at Trullo Porto Blue. We could not rate this property more highly. My husband and I stayed at this property for a week with our two children (ages 6 and 4) and my mom. It was the perfect set up for our family vacation. The Trullo is close to town but the landscaping makes you feel like you are nestled in the countryside. We especially enjoyed the outdoor spaces and the pool. The inside was tastefully decorated and the kitchen area worked great for us - we cooked a lot while we were there. Leandro was also super helpful with recommendations for local vineyards and an olive oil tasting. It was an incredible experience all around. We would love to go back someday.
We loved our villa in Martina Franca. It was clean, very spacious and close to many attractions. Our villa specialist Leandro was a bonus. He had great communication skills and made sure all our questions/concerns were responded to accordingly. He is the ultimate professional!
A great, spacious, reasonable & clean space. Close to towns of interest. Host has great communication skills and truly is interested in offering visitors a pleasant stay.
Our villa was super spacious and close to many attractions in Puglia. Most of all our villa specialist, Leandro, was the ultimate professional!
Leandro from Puglia Paradise was extremely helpful, our flight was diverted and he waited for us at the villa. He was always on hand to answer any questions we had. The property was even better than described and was located right on the edge of Martina Franco, very close to Ostuni, Alberello and all the other major tourist towns. It is easily accessible from both Bari and Brindisi airports. The shaded seating areas outside were really lovely particularly when the sun was very hot. I would highly recommend this villa and the team at Puglia Paradise.
We were 4 adults and 2 children and really enjoyed staying in this villa. The house is located in a beautiful quiet area but close to main touristic sites at the same time. The beautiful town of Martina Franca is only a few minutes away and covers all shopping needs. Furthermore it has a pretty old city center, very pleasant. The villa is spotless and the welcoming products were well appreciated. Contact with the super friendly agency is very efficient at all times. The house looks exactly as shown on the pictures. We would definitely recommend this villa.
Tolles Haus. Schönes Haus mit guter Synthese aus Tradition und Moderne. Wir waren jetzt Anfang April die ersten Gäste, da war es noch etwas muffig und kalt. Heizungen funktionierten aber. Mit den Aussenterassen im Sommer sicher der Knaller. Leider mussten wir in die Stadt immer das Auto nehmen, weil das Laufen an der Straße nicht so toll ist. Insgesamt schöner Aufenthalt. Leandro war als Ansprechpartner stets erreichbar und hat sich sofort gekümmert. Super.
On arriving at Trullo Porta Blu Leandro Vichi gave us lovely welcome and a comprehensive tour of the property, he didn’t seem to forget even the smallest detail. When we had a problem, which was out of the control of Puglia Paradise, they were quick to put in contingencies and also to offer some compensation when this also failed, through no fault of their own. We couldn’t have asked for more. Leandro was always friendly, punctual, contactable, informative and efficient. The villa was perfect for our needs, very well appointed with lots of lovely places to enjoy a quiet moment. We had a wonderful worry free holiday and would definitely use Puglia Paradise again as well as having no doubts in recommending them to others. Thank you.
Séjour au top : tout était au rendez-vous : la maison sublime , l extérieur et la piscine . Quelques soucis de départ gérés par Leandro, merci à lui
Perfect base & location to explore Valle d'Itria. Our hosts were excellent. A great trullo for a large family with wonderful outside seating areas and plenty of space inside. Well appointed, the pool was perfect and the location near Martina Franca was ideal for exploring all the local sights. Leandro of Puglia Paradise was an fabulous host he went above and beyond to ensure our stay was enjoyable. Many thanks
I recently stayed for a week in Trullo Porta Blu and have not stopped talking about it! I was in Italy for 3 weeks but my stay at our Trullo in Martina Franca was the highlight of my vacation. The proximity to the city was perfect, a 5 minute drive and we were in the Centro di Historia...an exciting place to have dinner, shop, or just stroll. Giovanna and Massimo went above and beyond their call of duty by making sure we had everything we needed, and Giovanna herself took us to the flea market in town (a "must" for shoppers) so that we didn't have to park and walk. The trullo was cozy, very clean and had a large outdoor pool, and amazing patios to eat and relax on. I recommend Puglia Paradise to anyone considering a stay in a Trullo with 5 star attention to detail!
Vacanza indimenticabile nella meravigliosa Puglia e servizio eccellente. Ci hanno veramente supportato in tutto, prima e dopo l'arrivo. Anche quando abbiamo avuto un problema col navigatore, ci hanno aiutati a trovare la struttura. Speriamo davvero di tornarci presto!
Can't recommend Puglia Paradise highly enough. Extremely high quality of villa in the most wonderful part of Italy I've ever been to. Add to that the fact that our rep, Giovanna, was so helpful and friendly, she really went out of her way to provide us with all the information we could possibly need, and even helped with our food shopping mid week when we ran out of water! she really was the icing on the cake! We will definitely be coming back to Puglia and will most definitely be booking through Puglia Paradise when we do!
Puglia Paradise is a very customer focused organisation, very responsive and keen to receive feed back to further improve the holiday experience. Our representative, Giovanna was extremely helpful, knowledgable and happy to enhance our holiday where she could. Massimo, the business owner, visited us during our stay which exceeded our expectations. I would strongly recommend Puglia Paradise if you want to visit this beautiful part of Italy.
A bucolic place in Italy! We recently enjoyed a delightful week at Trulllo Porta Blu. The property is a well appointed villa nestled among an orchard of fruit and olive trees. We enjoyed relaxing on the lovely terraces and swimming in the good size pool. The well lit terraces and pool provided a tranquil and beautiful setting for al fresco dining in the evenings.The villa is a modernized trulllo that is very spacious and comfortable. The villa sits below the hillside town of Martina França and was ideally situated for visits to nearby villages and to the beach. We found the staff very helpful: Leandro, the Puglia Paradise representative greeted us with a warm reception on our arrival, provisions for our first meal and with information that helped us plan our holiday and was also there to say goodbye on our departure. All in all an exceptional place and a delightful base for exploring all that Puglia has to offer.
This was probably our best holiday ever. From the booking process through to the moment we left the villa, the service from Puglia Paradise was exceptional. The villa is wonderful. Such a relaxing feel and plenty of outdoor space. Our son especially loved the pool, which was spotlessly clean. We had great service from Leandro throughout the stay, who was always available to help with local knowledge. If there was one highlight it was the night we booked the chef to cook at the villa. I used to be a restaurant critic - and this was possibly the best meal I have ever had. We travelled all the way from Australia for this holiday and would happily make the trip again to book with Puglia Paradise again. The whole experience was first class - keep up the great work!
A great family holiday. We were two families staying together for one week at this property. We had planned on visiting lots of the tourist attractions in the area, of which there are many, but the property, pool and outside areas were so lovely we ended up spending the majority of the week here. The outside space really worked for us and we were able to find shade throughout the day, it was 38 degrees! The pool is 1.4m deep with steps and was great for the kids, they were in and out of it all day. The villa is very well looked after and the internal spaces are light and bright. There is air conditioning in all of the rooms and the bathrooms are modern and work well. The owners were super helpful and responded quickly to any issues we had, which we really appreciated. The area is beautiful. Martina Franca is an attractive town with some great restaurants and ice cream shops. We tended to drive the short distance towards the town and park near the Everest super market and then walk as the parking in the town in August was a nightmare. I couldn't be more enthusiastic when recommending this villa, it is really great. Thank you Dario!!
