A stunning gem, the boutique Trullo Mandorla with lovely pool and landscaping is exclusive to Long Travel. Michael (one of our travel experts) loves the character and the stylish quality of the trullo and the lovely spot. Everyone comments that it feels really private.

Trullo Mandorla is in a lovely elevated location, just over 2km from Cisternino. Semi-detached from Trullo Zingaro by about one and a half metres of thick stone wall, guests’ privacy is assured, with the use of impressive dry stone walls, landscaping and tree planting, and by providing totally separate driveways, parking areas and outside spaces, which are also opposite-facing. They are actually very separate and private from one another. With lovely views, and set in two and a half acres, they dominate the landscape and are admired by all. In fact, they are so wonderful that a well-known Italian television channel featured them in a programme about trullo renovation, as superb examples.

Trullo Mandorla has two terraces, one of which has a built-in barbecue and an arched pergola shade. Both terraces overlook open grounds, with ancient olive trees, almonds, oaks, pomegranates and countless other native trees and shrubs and there is so much space that guests can follow the sun (or the shade) around, until the very last rays disappear – pure heaven. A short path winds its way to the “hidden ” pool, shared only with Trullo Zingaro. As if there in secret, the pool sits, in sheltered seclusion and privacy, behind tall dry stone walls, but is open at one end to enjoy the lovely panorama- absolute heaven!

Always a special example of a trullo, inside is fascinating. Masses of exposed stone, an unusual star-vaulted ceiling, and a “Sovrano-type ” cone, lit as a special feature, give it immense character. The living area is quite open-plan, with contemporary whites and greys and olive greens, and with some really interesting local ceramics.

One guest described the interior as “inspirational design ” and complimented us on “thinking of just about everything “. Thank you, Tony & Misha, from Leeds. Trullo Mandorla is even well-stocked with wine from the neighbour’s vineyard (and an honesty box) – ridiculously reasonably priced, it has proved to be very popular – very popular, indeed! Another highlight is the olive oil – extra virgin, cold press and as organic as it gets, it is Pugliese oil at its best.

Note there is no age limit on this trullo, well behaved children respectful of its beauty are welcome!

Smoking – we ask smokers to smoke outside only please.

Our trulli are looked after by Sandro and our Cisternino “A Team”!
