About Trulli Franca
In the heart of the Puglian countryside, the conical roofs of Trulli Franca nestle among a tranquil, oasis-like garden. Close to many of the region’s must see sights, it is excellent placed to explore, with the history of Martina Franca close by and the charms of Cisternino, Ceglie, Lorcorotondo and Ostuni just a little further afield.
Built around several delightful trulli, the property accentuates its rural heritage with antique and traditional furnishings, giving a real taste of authentic Puglia. The open-plan kitchen and living area is spacious and cool, the minimalism of the décor allowing the exposed pietra leccese to take centre stage. The six double en-suite bedrooms are simple, comfortable and peaceful.
The historic connections continue outside – the two swimming pools were once a rainwater tank and a pit for fermenting grapes – only adding to the property’s plentiful enchantments. It is ideally set up for outdoor living, the gardens full of vegetable patches and fragrant herbs that can be used when you fire up the pizza oven or barbeque and dine al fresco under a wisteria draped trellis. Lingering here as twilight falls and the stars appear in the sky will be an altogether magical experience.
