An introduction to Trullo Petrarolo

How would you describe Trullo Petrarolo in a nutshell?

Trullo Petrarolo is a beautifully restored small villa rental with two double bedrooms with en suite bathrooms plus a mezzanine level which has a further double sofa bed. The property can comfortably accommodate six people and is ideal for families.

Set in a picturesque vineyard valley with a hectare of private gardens with olive groves and fruit orchards — the rullo has a stunning 5m by 11m heated pool with a covered outdoor dining area and fully equipped kitchen with an outdoor BBQ under a pergola.

In the lower part of the garden, there is a giant grass turtle and trampoline for the kids to enjoy. The property has its own driveway entrance with parking space for up to three cars.

What is the story behind Trullo Petrarolo, what was your inspiration to create it?

I've always seen this gorgeous unrestored trullo, which is nestled in its own valley across the way from Masseria Petrarolo. But for a long time, it was not for sale, but eventually I was able to buy it and now we have done a complete renovation using the same design team as for Masseria Petrarolo which has transformed the trullo into this gorgeous villa rental, which can be rented separately to the Masseria.

We retained all the gorgeous features of the original building and yet brought the interiors up to boutique standards.

How would you describe the atmosphere and the interior design of Trullo Petrarolo?

Trulli are a very traditional style of building and when they are renovated, they make for truly magical spaces. The domed ceilings, original niches and tremendously thick walls create a serene sense of calm and well-being.

To you personally, what is so special about Trullo Petrarolo?

For me, the most special aspect of the Trullo is the setting in a little valley of its own, with a vineyard alongside is magical. The Trullo when you first see it makes you fall in love with it – it is utterly charming and you feel instantly at home.

The location of Trullo Petrarolo

Trullo Petrarolo is located in the Puglian countryside surrounded by olive groves and vineyards. The small town of Monopoli is 10km away, with a nice historical centre and everything you might need. We are about 25 mins from Capitolo beach with beachside restaurants and beach clubs that are a lot of fun in the summer.

Other towns, such as Alberobello, the historical town of trullis, is about 20 mins away. Cisternino, a hilltop town famous for its caves, is also close by. Ostuni is about 40 mins away, and we’re about an hour from Bari, which is where the Puglia airport is.

Further south from us, about a 40-minute drive, there’s a wonderful national park Torre Guaceto with a truly amazing beach.

When is the best time to visit Puglia?

April and May you have spring colours and beautiful looking gardens. June is the best of early summer. In July and August the region is in full swing. September and October are perfect for late-season exploring. Christmas and New Year at the Trullo with the fireplaces roaring is truly magical.
