“Hidden gem in Southern Italy …. beautiful Trulli with pool.”
Rural quite location but only 2kms from Alberobello. Ideal to explore the Puglia region. The property is a beautifully restored semi detached Trulli with two good sized bedrooms which now benefit from the recent addition of air conditioning. Pool is a really good size and we were lucky to have some fantastic neighbours during our 2 week stay. Car is necessary but location is within 5 min drive to Alberobello which has a good range of restaurants. Approximately a 30 min drive to the coast which we enjoyed on several days. This was our first trip to Puglia and will now not be our last and we would certainly look to stay in Trulli Olivio again.
We stayed last month and had a lovely holiday. We used both Trulli and despite soaring temperatures it remained nice and cool inside. The new pool heating was very effective and meant the pool was perfect even for our 9 month old at the beginning of the season. There was a cherry tree next to one trulli which was covered in ripe cherries so we ate them all week straight off the tree!
Hire care essential, but with one there are plenty of places to explore. Read the comments book and go to the restaurant that you can walk to… Two of us went there one evening and has a lovely meal of mixed antipasti, a pizza and desert combined with a carafe of wine. Felt slightly guilty when the whole bill came to 33 Euros!
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.
“Modern, spacious chalet”
We travelled as a family with two children aged 10 and 12 and had the in-laws visiting. The chalet is modern, clean and very comfortable. We enjoyed all the amenities such as TV, wifi etc. The ski bus stops just outside the door, the ski hire shop is just up the road and there is a variety of skiing terrain to explore. The views from the chalet are beautiful and parking is very easy. Can highly recommend it and we are planning to stay there again.
“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!
“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.
