“A "trulli" magical experience.”
After a busy week in Rome it was such a treat to come to Trullo Caterina. It is a unique experience to stay in a trullo which was found to be extremely clean, comfortable and peaceful. We slept so well in the comfortable bed. The grounds are breathtaking, as well as the views, as the trullo is quite high up. It is in a great location to visit the local towns and the sea shore. The owners Jill and andrew and their son James were wonderful hosts who are knowledgable about the area and would do anything to make our stay enjoyable.
“A haven of peace amongst the olive groves”
I'm quite a fussy traveller and spend a long time researching ideal holiday locations. This rental proved to be one of the best I have ever found. The lovely garden and pool area is an absolute haven of peace and the cottage beautifully renovated, clean and very well equipped with a nice terrace area for eating out. When we arrived everything had been perfectly prepared to welcome us - more like hotel service than a usual holiday rental! Ideally situated only 3km from Cisternino this trullo in the Itria valley is the perfect base to visit the beautiful surrounding villages, towns and beaches. Whether you prefer just to relax at the pool, or like visiting new places there is certainly enough to do in the area to keep you busy for one or two weeks. Jill and andrew are great hosts. They live on site, but know exactly how to provide the right balance - present when you need them, but never intruding. They gave us a lot of valuable tips for restaurants etc. which we would never have found without their help, and andrew even offered to take us on a hiking trip a good three hours drive from the trullo! That's service! And any downsides ? If you're visiting in the summer and are prone to mosquitoes, take plenty of spray!!
“Wonderful place to relax and enjoy Italy at its best. Great host”
We stayed in this trullo for 12 nights and had a fantastic time. Jill and andrew are charming and could not do more to make you welcome and to ensure that your needs are completely met. Although the rented trullo is a part of their home, they have made great efforts to ensure that your area is self-contained and private. While they are very happy to help, (for instance, ringing to book restaurants, finding a dentist) their presence is completely unobtrusive. We would highly recommend and hope that many more enjoy their stay as much as we did.
We stayed here for a week as part of a month's driving tour of Italy. Reaching Trollo Caterina 12 days into our trip we were ready to relax and enjoy the wonderful peace and quiet in delightful surroundings. We could not have asked for better. The trollo is indeed compact but perfect for 2. It's nicely furnished with a lovely private patio where we had breakfast every morning and long evenings sipping local wine. The pool area is gorgeous as is the garden with it's lovely old olive trees and views of the undulating countryside dotted with trullis. It was very hot whilst we were there so many hours were spent relaxing with a book under the olive trees beside the pool. We had our bikes so also explored some of the region and local villages. Many restaurants can be found in the small streets in the old part of Cisternino only a couple of miles away, although we chose to eat at home on several occasions as the Trollo and its ambience was so lovely. Jill and andrew were perfect hosts and always there if we needed them. We would highly recommend staying here and, given the opportunity, we both hope to return.
We had a wonderful stay, Jill and andrew were perfect hosts. We arrived late, tired and hungry and Jill had prepared us a lovely Italian meal. The trullo was beautifully restored with wonderful views and surroundings. However, the highlight was Charlie Pickle, their very adorable dog!
“A little Gem”
I have often stayed in places with the intention of returning but this is the first time I have actually done it. We spent two very enjoyable weeks in Trullo Caterina last year, and it was perfectly located to visit the many beautiful towns and places of interest that Puglia and Basilicata have to offer. This year we stayed just one very lazy week enjoying the pool and garden at the Trullo. As ever, Andrew and Jill were perfect hosts - always on hand if we needed them. The trullo is small but extremely comfortable, with a beautiful outside area to sit and read or eat & drink. The pool and barbecue area are gorgeous, and we spent much of our time there reading under the shade of an olive tree. Andrew is a passionate gardener and the care with which the grounds are kept really make this a special place to stay. The photos on the website really don't do him justice!
“Charming and friendly”
This is a small but charming trullo (attached to the owners' own trullo) and set in farmland just a 5 min drive from Cisternino; 20 mins drive to the coast and within the proximity of interesting places to visit - Locorotondo, Ostuni and Martina Franca - where there is a classical music festival in the summer. One should have no concerns about the owners being so close. The trullo is very private and the owners andrew and Jill, are delightful, helpful and very knowledgeable about the area and are always on hand if required. You do run the risk of being invited for a glass (or two) of the local vino and prosciutto combined with some very warm company. The trullo icludes its own sitting room, kitchen,immaculate bathroom and a garden terrace outside the entrance for those who enjoy an espresso in the sun with or without smoke!
“Peace and total relaxation.”
When we arrived at Trullo Caterina, we were enchanted by the design and atmosphere of these unusual buildings and the beautiful landscape surrounding them. With the very warmest of welcomes from Jill and andrew, who can advise on everything you could want to know about the local area and beyond, we were hooked! The Trullo itself is delightfully cosy, immaculate, with lovely homely touches. Outside, the immediate courtyard is perfect for eating 'al fresco' and the extensive grounds and unique pool are stunning. There are so many fascinating places of interest, together with the beaches, to visit. However, time and again you will be drawn back to the peace and total relaxation that is Trullo Caterina.
My wife and I have stayed at Trullo Caterina three times already, and are planning another visit there shortly. Trullo Caterina has become our home from home whenever we are in the area. The trullo is well equipped and comfortable and lacks for nothing; moreover, Jill has added little touches that make one's stay even more homely. Andrew is always available with great recommendations and suggestions and, as a bonus, will gladly organise some serious trekking in the 'backwoods' of the region. on the other hand, the pool and garden are ideal for a total do-nothing-but-relax type holiday. These accommodations are 'trulli' perfect, but one does need a car (or a bicycle).
It was a short but most relaxing winter break. On 2 mornings it was warm enough to have morning coffee outside in our pyjamas! Lots of places to explore, interesting towns as well as coastline. The only reason we didn't give it 5 stars is because it was too cold to try out the swimming pool! The trullo was warm and cosy.
