We had a wonderful time with our family in both trulli’s Alto and Olivo. The trulli’s exceeded our expectations. Well managed booking proces, and we fellt very welcome on our arrival. Everything is at hand in the trulli’s, we had really nothing left to worry about. As experienced Italy travellers we are always prepared to solve problems ourselves, but no problems at all this time! Nice restaurants and supermarkets at 10 minutes (by car). Fine kitchen to prepare your own dinners. Nice terrace, lovely countryside, and superb pool, even in summer heated by the sun! That would be an improvement though. Talk to the neighbour farmer: he will bring you fresh vegetables, tomatoes etc. – Trip Advisor September 2014.
“Lovely cottage, beautiful surroundings”
Our family holiday was made all the better by the lovely cottage and its facilities. Our party was seven adults and there was plenty of space for us all. Having one of the bedrooms on the ground floor with a shower room was prefect for my elderly parents. The cottage was warm, clean and inviting. We had a very enjoyable meal at the local pub, The Lamb Inn. The village is very quiet, which is great, but other villages and tourist attractions were easily accessed.
I would fully recommend it and hope to return myself.
“We didn’t want to leave!”
…A really delightful and historic property three minutes walk from the boulangerie / bread shop in a charming, sleepy village.
…The wonderfully proportioned pool was a complete pleasure and the whole ‘yard’ / garden area became a perfect day-time activity/ chill out area. In the evenings we dined by candlelight outside at the large all weather table by the pool.
…The house was the core of our holiday and we loved to relax and spend time “at home” there.
“Fantastic Stay @ Easterleigh Cottage”
Recently stayed at Easterleigh Cottage to celebrate mums 60th Birthday. Never been to the Cotwold’s before and Great Rissington was everything we had ever imagined it to be like. Stunning surroundings, views and villages.
The cottage was simply beautiful! Immaculately cleaned, fresh linen and towels awaiting us, more space than we knew what to do with and very comfortable. Bright and spacious dinning room to enjoy meals as a family, lovely log fire to snuggle up in front of in the evening and a very pretty garden with various nooks and crannies to explore and enjoy bbq’s in on a lovely summers day.
Couldn’t have asked for a better cottage!! Will definitely stay again!! Highly recommend
“Wonderful cottage and facilities”
A wonderful cottage. Four of us had a bedroom each, there were two bathrooms / toilets and an additional shower room with toilet on the ground floor. This was very important to us as one of our friends only has one leg and this meant he had no stairs to climb. He had a downstairs bedroom and his own washroom facilities. Ample space in the kitchen which was fully equipped with everything you would need to stay and a large kitchen table. Large fridge / freezer. A lovely lounge which then led to another room with table and chairs.
The best part for me was I originally spoke to Mark about the booking and explained we had a disabled person with us. Everything he said about the cottage and as listed on his website is true. No nasty surprises.
Another added bonus was the Lamb pub some 5 minutes walk away. Lovely beer, food and staff.
All in all a wonderful time in Great Rissington and would have no hesitation in recommending and we will be returning.
“Home from home in a beautiful village location”
Great cottage and perfect for a girls weekend away. Well stocked kitchen and comfortable sitting room. Lovely location within easy drive of beautiful Burford. We had a great time.
“Perfect location for exploring this wonderful unspoilt part of Italy”
We stayed in Trullo Alto for the first week of Easter holidays and it really was a perfect ‘home’ from which to enjoy Puglia. The house was well equipped, even down to the more than welcome bottle of wine and chilled Peroni which awaited us when we arrived late on the Saturday evening! There was enough space for us all both inside and outside, and we felt the children were able to make use of the pool and outdoors without us having to worry about anything.
The villa and grounds are well maintained and have good facilities – especially useful was the washer/dryer and large fridge which are located in a little outhouse behind the house. The views are fabulous! We enjoyed looking out onto fields of vegetables and olive groves whilst having our ‘aperitivo’ and cooking on the BBQ.
One of our party brought his bike along which enabled him to go out each morning and explore the countryside – perfect cycling conditions apparently!
The driveway/track up to the house was a little scary to start…. very narrow and we had a large Subaru Forrester….! However, we managed to survive the week with no mishaps or scratches to the car so it can be done!
Puglia is gorgeous…. very unspoilt and probably even better that we were off season. The food is amazing and incredibly good value. The quote of the holiday was that it would be hard to go back to Waitrose ice cream after all that wonderful gelato in Puglia (twice a day….!) And as for the burrata…. mozzarella in the UK will never taste as fresh!
