There's something magical about staying in a trullo house - whether it's the iconic conical roofs, the cosy, often rustic interiors, the history, or the fact that Puglia is the only place you'll find these fascinating properties.
villa is no exception! Built 400 years ago, it has been beautifully restored and bought up to date with simple and elegant interiors, in keeping with the surrounding picturesque whitewashed towns and cities.
The open-plan lounge and dining areas, connected by open archways, are light, spacious and whitewashed with touches of dark wood furnishings and rustic chic touches. Yet, the spaces maintain a homely atmosphere, which are cosy and intimate. The separate kitchen is there to whip up a delightful Puglian feast - just don't forget the orecchiette or 'little ears' pasta - a local speciality.
Choose from three beautiful bedrooms with stylish bedsteads, decorative tiled floors and again simple whitewashed walls. There is a fourth lounge area that can also be made into a bedroom if required. Fancy a soak after all that sunbathing and swimming out in the Italian sun?
Make your way to the chic bathrooms with muted grey tiles and white walls.
Step outside and you won't be disappointed. Pretty gardens, stone pathways, lawns and sun loungers surround a private swimming pool where you can fully appreciate the Puglian countryside. And if that isn't enough, the welcoming host provides yummy local goods, including delicious extra virgin olive oil, taralli and friselle (local snacks) for you to fully enjoy the experience.
If you can pull yourself away from this alluring holiday home, head out to the stunning cities in the region including Cisternino, Locorotondo, Ostuni and the UNESCO World Heritage site of Alberobello - famous for its number of trulli houses, which 'truly' is a spectacular sight to behold.
Hotfoot it to Fasano and you won't be disappointed. Just 4km away from Trullo Silvana, it's here you'll find a lovely old sun-drenched town blessed with an historic centre, winding alleyways and streets with some simply wonderful restaurants, bars and cafes. A short drive through the distinct Puglian countryside will lead you to the coastline where you'll discover sandy beaches. Be sure to visit Torre Canne with its shallow bright green water.
Nearby, there is picturesque town of Locorotondo, the wonderful city of Ostuni with its excellent restaurants (including four that are Michelin Star), the picture postcard towns of Alberobello (a UNESCO World Heritage site for its vast number of trulli) and Martina Franca, with its Baroque architecture. Cisternino has its own character and charm, free summer concerts and great restaurants.
On this peninsula, you are never too far from the sea - family beaches and everything you could need - including succulent seafood and gelato!
On the opposite Ionian coast, discover stretches of open beach. Both coastlines offer large beaches and quiet coves with beautiful clear blue water. Further south the shore becomes more rugged and dramatic.
