La Torretta

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.

“It was a wonderful holiday, despite the weather.
The best thing about La Torretta is the calm – so relaxing and peaceful. It was exactly what we needed. Serena is so charming and accommodating – we even had a home-made cake to welcome us!
I’m sure we’ll be in touch again in the future, we can’t stay away for too long!
Thank you also for all of your help.”

“Es war wunderwunderschön !!!!
La Torretta ist wie du uns schon angekündigt hast ein Schmuckstück und wir haben uns pudelwohl gefühlt.
Serena ist auch eine ganz liebe und herzliche Dame.
Und ja, Apulien hat unser Herz erobert. Wir haben so schöne Ecken entdeckt. Die Orte sind malerisch und die Menschen so unaufgeregt authentisch, nett und sympathisch. Und das Essen !!!! Mmmmmmhhhhh! Und ja, die Landschaft ist auch so schön. Diese tolle, fruchtbare, rote Erde und die geschichtsträchtigen uralten Olivenbäume. Dazwischen dann diese Trullis, ein bißchen wie in einem Märchenland.
Alles in allem – es war wunderschön und ganz bestimmt nicht unser letzter Urlaub in Apulien.
Cielo di Puglia und deine reizende und herzliche “Fürsorge” finden wir spitze. Da gibts nichts, was wir uns mehr wünschen würden. Auch deine Tips waren toll und haben uns gleich ein bißchen “heimisch” fühlen lassen.
Danke, molto grazie e a la prossima”

“Es war fantastisch in Puglia; ein ausgesprochen schöner Landstrich und wunderbare Orte.
Das Trulli war toll! Ich war von der Einrichtung und Serena’s sehr guten Geschmack total begeistert. Es fiehl mir schwer Pumi und Laculona wieder zu verlassen.
Also ein toller Urlaub und wir werden wieder zurückkommen!”

“Tom and I had a really wonderful time at La Torretta, we did not want to leave and have already talked about going back next year!
Serena was a charming and very welcoming hostess, we felt relaxed straight away. The house was beautiful and we loved the décor and thoughtful touches; it was incredibly sweet of Serena to leave fruit, wine, and biscuits for us. We loved the little nooks in the walls filled with lovely things and also the ceramic kitchenware which was so stylish. We could tell that lots of love and attention had been paid to La Torretta which made our stay even more special. We especially enjoyed the outdoor areas and plants as each section felt like a little room. It was so peaceful out in the countryside and we hardly saw anyone, it was so quiet!
Although it feels remote, we were so pleased to find that we were half way between two beautiful towns – Ostuni and Cisternino, both of which we visited for dinner. We also visited Lecce, Locorotondo, Grottaglie and Savelletri from the house although we didn’t have time for Polignano a Mare or Monopoli, which we wanted to visit. It was nice to have the option of interesting places to visit nearby.
The only thing we both noticed was that the bed and mattress were hard, we had a couple of restless nights (but maybe this is simply because we are used to softer bedding?).
I also thought it might be nice to have a couple of board games? Although may be difficult as there are so many different nationalities staying there.
Peace, quiet, style and substance – La Torretta is paradise! This was mine and Tom’s first holiday abroad together and we will never forget it, it was everything we had hoped for. We are thinking about taking friends next time to show it off!
Thank you very much for all of your help. Please do also pass our comments on to Serena as well.”

“Wir hatten einen wunderbaren Aufenthalt im „La Torretta“! Das Trullo ist wunderschön eingerichtet und mit dem Kamin fühlt man sich auch bei schlechtem Wetter sehr wohl. Der Service ist super, auch Serena ist ganz bezaubernd. Wir waren mit allem sehr zufrieden und hatten eine tolle Zeit. Eigentlich sind zwei Wochen viel zu kurz, bei den ganzen schönen Dingen, die man dort sehen und erleben kann. Apulien ist auf jeden Fall eine Reise wert und ist für uns eines der schönsten Flecken in Italien. Cielo di Puglia werden wir auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen!”
