Description from manager

Spending holidays in original Trulli houses is the best way to enjoy your stay in Puglia. Relax and rejuvenate at this typical Apulian villa. Explore the nearby charming towns and the Castellana Grottos that were formed over 90 million years ago! And when the sun goes down, you’ll want to dine alfresco. Grill fresh fish in the stone barbecue area and make a toast to the sunset.
