There’s always something a little magical about Trullis, and this unique vacation home rental in Italy has been smartly restored with a clever update that actually amplifies its ancient appeal. We love the graceful shapes and rugged stone, the lush and beautiful native landscape, and the way the modern glass cubes link the spaces.
Brindisi Trulli Ostuni, Italy
Set on almost five acres in one of the most picturesque valleys just outside of Ostuni, this vacation home rental in Italy is one of many Trulli’s unique to the region, and is a faithful example of their authentic and historic characteristics. Originally used as temporary shelters, the structure’s conical shapes and arched stone interiors have been carefully preserved and restored with respect for their cultural significance and beauty. Constructed using locally sourced lime and quarried stone, the home has been brought back to life in all of its striking detail and expanded through a clever use of glass cubes that connect each of the structures.
The interiors are a series of maze-like rooms artfully lit to create cozy living and sleeping areas with a fully equipped kitchen and three bedrooms that can accommodate up to eight. With a mix of rugged utilitarianism and stylish but understated decor and furnishings, the design preserves the simple and authentic spirit of the place .
The expansive grounds include an infinity pool with multiple lounge and dining areas, along with a quarry-stone barbecue and a wood-burning oven, all set within a thicket of olive groves, fruit orchards and native Mediterranean gardens providing a feeling of serene privacy.
Optional daily fresh Mediterranean breakfast and chef can be arranged and is included in the daily rate during the months of June and September and October served poolside. Optional daily housekeeping and laundry services available on request with on site laundry facilities. Optional car and driver available with on site parking.
