4 Bedroom Trullo in Martina Franca Apulia Italy

4 Bedroom Trullo in Martina Franca Apulia Italy

4 Bedroom Trullo in Martina Franca Apulia Italy

A traditional trullo, stone built, mostly exposed inside and out, with vaulted (high) ceilings and one large normal (squared) room. NB the front door is on the side of the house, coming from the road, and faces due east.

So the main part of the garden (with 4 fig trees, 2 cherries, 1 or 2 almonds, 1 medlar, 1 persimmon, 1 plum, 1 walnut, and 43 olives) faces south. 

The large kitchen, with a table that seats 8 easily, gets sunset light as well as having a northern window. The walls are very thick (6 feet) which gives a degree of scope for recessed cupboards as well as providing excellent insulation.

The valley of Ittria, the only area in the world where these extraordinary houses can be found, is known by Italians as the loveliest part of this beautiful country.

Local architecture is delightful, as the Baroque in many places (notably the port of Monopoli) meets the Gothic face to face and is brightened in many delightful towns by simple white buildings in a style familiar to those who have visited the Greek islands, as well as touches of North Africa.

About Apulia/Puglia:

Puglia is Italy’s ascendant region, a place where savvy travellers bored or worn down by the crowds of Campania and Tuscany escape for something a bit less frenetic and manicured. Top of the list for prospective newcomers is the food. Puglia’s cucina povera is about as earthy as Italian cuisine gets without eating it straight out of the soil. Then there’s the exuberant architecture, best summarised by the word ‘baroque’ and exhibited in all its finery in the glittering ‘Florence of the South’, Lecce, and its smaller sibling, Gallipoli.

With the longest coastline of any region in mainland Italy, Puglia is larger than many people realise. In the north, the spur of land sticking out into the Adriatic is occupied by the balmy microclimates of the Gargano peninsula, a kind of miniature Amalfi with fewer poseurs. The Italian boot’s ‘stiletto’ hosts the land of Salento, a dry scrubby region famous for its wines, and bloodthirsty Greek and Turkish history. In between lies the Valle d’Itria, a karstic depression populated by vastly contrasting medieval towns that have little in common apart from their haunting beauty.

Of the larger cities, Brindisi, an erstwhile Roman settlement, is one of the major departure points for Greece (by ferry), while Puglia’s largest metropolis, Bari has a university and trendier inclinations.
