La Torretta is an enchanting trullo built in a typical style for the area around Ostuni. Staying in a trullo is a magical experience and every part of La Torretta is a highlight!
An ancient olive tree shades an outside dining area which is enveloped by the smell of aromatic herbs and lavender. In the evening little lanterns hanging in the tree light up the space- it is spectacular! Just behind the trullo is the Jacuzzi. Once you have taken in enough sun, you can find some refuge in a hammock under the bamboo thatched roofs.
The thick walls of the trullo also keep its interior nice and cool in the summer. The bedroom is located under the dome of the trullo and, as tradition dictates, the bed is tucked into a little alcove. Despite its generous size it is not taking away much space of the room itself. The fireplace corner is a cozy spot to spend your evenings in autumn and winter.
In fact, the day could not have a better ending than with a good book and a nice glass of the excellent regional red wine in front of the warming fire.
The kitchen is great for cooking and having nice fresh meals together, while the view out of the kitchen window inspires you to put on your walking shoes and discover more of the splendid surroundings. Even the bathroom is worth writing home about. The owner, a lovely and very creative lady has tiled parts of the walls with some broken ceramic pieces – the result is magnificent.
A second bedroom and bathroom has been added to the property in a small outer building at only a few meters distance to the main Torretta. The style of the dependance is equally lovely and small touches like a kettle, Nespresso machine and air conditioning make a stay here very comfortable.
This trullo combines tradition with a fun and well-thought-through design. All the rooms are very airy and filled with light. A true marvel!
Two sweet dogs might keep you company during your stay. They are very well-behaved, do not enter the house and do not beg at the table.
Also note that La Torretta is only a hundred meters away from La Casa Delle Luci. For larger groups both can be rented together.
