On a hillside covered in olive and fruit trees, Trullo Badessa is surrounded by natural beauty and boasts stunning views.

This 18th-century trullo house has been recently renovated to preserve many of its original features while offering a high standard of modern living. Its elegant interior is complemented outdoors by a shady veranda and a paved terrace complete with a wood-fired barbecue.

Enjoy meals at the alfresco dining table and be wowed by the scenery. Take long walks through the local woodlands, swim in your above-ground pool or drive for just ten minutes to visit some of Puglia’s most charming towns.

Trullo Badessa is ideal for friends and families who want a comfortable haven to return to after days out exploring the sights of Puglia and experiencing its beauty.
Since it lies in the midpoint between the Adriatic and Ionian coasts, you’ll be especially spoiled for beautiful beaches.


The villa is private and will exclusively be used by you and your group.
The villa includes a total of 2 bedrooms: one master with a double bed and one twin bedroom with two single beds.
The living room has a double sofa bed.
Often you can see the neighbor's dog, a very kind Maremano Shepherd, walking around Trullo Badessa. We hope this is not a problem for you as the dog has grown fee and Trullo Badessa is not fenced.


The last 300 meters to reach Trullo Badessa are on a dirt road which makes it a real retreat.

A perfect stay at Trullo Badessa
Our stay at Trullo Badessa in the Puglian countryside was just what we needed after the last 18 months and it couldn’t have been better. From the time of booking and throughout our stay the service we received from Puglia Paradise was exceptional, as was our Villa ‘Angel’ Leandro! We would not have managed without him having to quarantine for a large part of our holiday, and any request, no matter how big or small, was met with calm, professional and friendly ease. He really made our stay! The Villa itself was perfect for our family of 4 and the pool was the shining star. We would also highly recommend the private chef for a feast of local Puglian delights. A very memorable holiday indeed. Thank you Leandro and all at Puglia Paradise. We will see you again!

Fantastico Trullo Badessa
La nostra esperienza al Trullo Badessa è stata meravigliosa. La location era stupenda, panorami incredibili e la struttura era dotata di tutti i comfort. Lo staff era sempre a disposizione per qualsiasi necessità ed un ringraziamento particolare a Leandro per la sua accoglienza e disponibilità. Ritorneremo sicuramente.

Abbiamo soggiornato ad agosto 2021 presso #trulloBadessa. Luogo incantevole e opportunamente isolato dai centri abitati. Location magica, adatta al relax. Abbiamo approfittato dei frutti che i mandorli attorno alla tenuta offrivano a km 0. La struttura è molto comoda ed è piaciuta anche ai nostri cani che hanno avuto modo di sfrenarsi e divertirsi. Piscina con vista mozzafiato sulla vallata. Leandro è sempre molto disponibile e ci ha permesso di rendere più leggera e confortevole la nostra vacanza. Esperienza assolutamente da ripetere.

Abbiamo soggiornato una settimana nel #trullo Badessa ad agosto 2021.. Un'oasi di paradiso...esattamente il luogo di cui avevamo bisogno:semplicità, natura e tranquillità. Il nostro guest angel Leandro ci ha supportato nelle piccole gestioni pratiche in maniera impeccabile ed efficiente rispondendo sempre velocemente ai nostri messaggi e anche nelle richieste più ludiche (organizzazione del messaggio, cena in villa con lo chef..) che dire? Una esperienza assolutamente da replicare e da raccomandare.. Da pugliese espatriata...sono orgogliosa di veder decollare una gestione del turismo ad altissimo livello. Bravi e grazie!

La nostra esperienza presso il Trullo Badessa
Abbiamo alloggiato presso il Trullo Badessa per una decina di giorni durante le nostre vacanze estive. Il trullo si trova in una posizione abbastanza isolata ma allo stesso tempo a soli 10 minuti da Alberobello, Locorotondo e altre zone di interesse. La posizione è buona anche perchè si può decidere di andare al mare sullo Ionio che dista solo pochi km in più rispetto all'Adriatico. Abbiamo soggiornato con un'altra coppia di amici e gli spazi si sono rivelati più che sufficienti. La struttura, recentemente ristrutturata, è dotata all'esterno di piscina privata e barbecue. Trovandosi in una posizione rialzata rispetto alla zona circostante dal trullo si gode di una bellissima vista sulle campagne e di un tramonto stupendo.
I servizi e la pulizia sono ottimi, la sig.ra Antonella gentilissima e disponibile nel darci ogni tipo di consiglio su spiagge, ristoranti e locali della zona.
Ci siamo trovati davvero bene sotto ogni punto di vista e lo consigliamo a tutti!

Nous avons réservé cette maison pour un séjour de 5 jours. Le lieu était absolument parfait. La préparation de notre séjour par l'équipe, l'accueil et le suivi de Leandro pour notre location étaient tout simplement impeccable. Leandro nous a donné d'excellentes adresses notamment pour les restaurants. La maison est située sur une butte avec une vue absolument extraordinaire sur la campagne des Pouilles.
La maison est totalement conforme aux photos, même mieux, et le calme règne sur cet endroit très reposant. La nouvelle piscine est un délice, on peut nager tout en regardant le panorama, c'est le top. Certes les derniers mètres du chemin d'accès secouent un peu, mais cela ne gêne en rien; l'équipement de la maison est parfait autour de la piscine, et les deux salles de bains permettent de passer un séjour avec grand aise.

Nous ne pouvons que recommander cette location et l'entreprise qui met son énergie à ce que vous soyez pleinement satisfaits; des cadeaux de bienvenue (vin local, huile, etc...) ajoutent une dernière touche super positive à ce séjour. Nous avons été ravis de notre choix.

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 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.

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!

Un endroit au calme dans la nature avec vue panoramique. L'hébergement original et même confortable.
Le silence, la vue superbe, le gout et niveau de finition de l'interieur bien presenté et adapté et- trés bien equipé. On a beaucoup aimé la communication parfait avec l'établissement dés le début par WhatsApp ou E-mail et mobile. Nous étions ravis de pouvoir découvrir cette partie d'Italie si intéressant et original. Le séjour au Trullo Badessa était une merveille absolue à recommander!

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.

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!

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.

Our stay at Trullo Badessa was amazing from start to finish. Massimo was very welcoming when we arrived, he showed us around and made sure to explain everything and help us. They left us a lot of food in the kitchen such as fruits, biscuits, coffee and fresh bread! The view from the place is breathtaking, in fact the photos dont do it justice. You have to be there to really experience it. The garden is filled with olive trees such that every morning we would wake up to the sound of birds. Massimo also left us logs to be used for the fireplace and BBQ which we welcomed gladly as we used them every night. Bedrooms were very comfortable and the sofa bed is very easy to lay out and turns into a doublebed. All in all, I highly recommend this place ! And would go there again if I could in an instant! :)

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!!

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 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 :)

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! 😊
