Trullo Iduna

Trullo Iduna is an authentic 200 years old property sitting on top of a little hill looking out onto the pristine countryside of the Itria Valley. It is positioned in almost equal distance to the quaint towns of Cisternino and Martina Franca. The property has been sensibly restored, paying the most possible attention to creating a comfortable home without jeopardizing the original structure. As a matter of fact, only ancient building techniques have been used in the renovation and no new parts have been added to the already existing Trullo. What we find inside is antique “chianche” floors, a fireplace, arches and alcoves blending perfectly with modern pieces of art, an Indian writing desk and other treasured pieces of furniture diligently sourced by the well-travelled owners. The Trullo offers all modern comforts while allowing its guests to breath in the air of its modest past. The kitchen and living area form the heart of the house with the two double bedrooms and two bathrooms attached on either side.
One of the bathrooms has been integrated in the thick walls of the Trullo and only offers limited space, while being absolutely functional and well-designed. Joined to one of the bedrooms is another cosy space which can be used as an additional bedroom if required. Trullo Iduna’s outside spaces are spectacular! A beautiful swimming pool, various outside lounges- including a romantic fire pit- and “al fresco” dining areas complete the picture. Shaded spaces with soft pillows, views onto the pastoral landscape and the scent of wild herbs are the final ingredients for an exceptional holiday. Indeed it is very difficult to leave Trullo Iduna even for a couple of hours, but you will not regret it- charming towns, beautiful beaches, friendly locals and delicious Apulian produce await you outside. Sharing the stories of the day in front of the fire, underneath the stars and with a nice glass of local wine in hand, will be priceless.

“Trullo Iduna hat uns super gefallen, ein absoluter Traum, nahezu Perfekt!! Iduna hat unsere Erwartungen weit übertroffen.”
(Fam. Casamassa, Germany, August 2017)

“We had a wonderful holiday, Trullo Iduna being the highlight absolutely. The place could not be more ideal.
Only piece of feedback – check out time at 10am is in my view way too early. I thought I’d send that back as we had such a good time but we felt pressed to get out on the Saturday.
Thanks for all your assistance and hopefully will be in touch again as we’d love to go back to Puglia.”
(S. Jefferies, UK, July 2017)

“We had an excellent time in Puglia and our stay at Trullo Iduna was lovely as always (stayed for the 3rd year in a row). Thanks for all your efforts to make it a pleasurable visit and we’ll be in touch when our plans for next year start to solidify.”
(Grant, U.S.A., July 2017)

“Trullo Iduna war ganz wunderbar, sehr geschmackvoll, sehr gepflegt. Alles wirklich bestens.
Franco ist auch ganz reizend und sympathisch.”
(Fam. Staisch, Germany, June 2017)

“Trullo Iduna ist sehr schön und äußerst gepflegt. Es ist etwas ganz besonderes, in einem derartigen Haus zu wohnen. Auch die Außenanlage mit dem Pool, der Außendusche und den Ruhekissen ist wunderschön. Es hat uns sehr gut gefallen.
Auch über das Personal können wir nur Gutes berichten. Sowohl Renata als auch Franco haben sich sehr gekümmert und die Verständigung ging problemlos.
Auch Ihnen, liebe Frau Bertoli, möchten wir für die fürsorgliche Betreuung vor und nach dem Urlaub ganz herzlich danken. Das ist wirklich klasse.”
(Martin S., Deutschland, September 2016)

“Trullo Iduna was perfect for us. Although only 2 1/2 bedrooms, it was spacious with ample room for all of us. We liked the rustic feel of the place but at the same time, it had high-end features. The patios, outdoor furniture and pool were beautiful, comfortable and of very high quality. We didn’t expect screens in the windows, so that was an added bonus. We used the internet frequently and it worked well. Overall, the house was simply beautiful. We had a terrific trip and will be in touch should we decide to return to Puglia in the future.”
(Amy W., Frankreich, August 2016)

“Wir hatten eine wunderbare Zeit in Apulien! Der Trullo hat uns sehr gut gefallen, man hat gemerkt, dass er von Franco bewohnt wird. Die Einrichtung hat einfach einen persönlichen Stil. Auch die Umgebung – vor allem Martina Franca – haben uns begeistert.
Ich habe vor allem die Ruhe und Ungestörtheit genossen und diesen herrlichen Außenbereich.
Der Service war toll. Renata hatte sehr leckere Lebensmittel besorgt und uns mit Rat und Tat zur Seite gestanden. Auch der spontan von uns benötigte Flughafentransfer wurde reibungslos organisiert.
Falls wir uns noch einmal für einen Apulien-Urlaub entscheiden, werden wir sicher wieder auf Sie zurück kommen.”
