Price from Loading... Per Week

Trullo Portarino is a perfect little jewel. With seven lovely cones and masses of stone, pretty perfection such as this is not easy to find.

In a rural spot, about 4km from Cisternino, Trullo Portarino is a thoroughly cherished holiday home. A short, slightly challenging track to arrive at the trullo ensures real privacy and tranquility. Surrounded by natural countryside and cultivated land, with fruit and olive trees, the views are so typical of Puglia.

Seven picture-perfect cones form the pretty structure for this detached trullo and local stone gleams from every corner, outside and in. With a designer open feel, Trullo Portarino has been furnished with taste and a modern simplicity and comfort, ideally suited to the architectural demands of a trullo. It feels “dinky” but spacious, at the same time. Arches form some separation between areas, it flows beautifully and the use of space is ingenious – every niche has been put to good use. We especially love the copper lights – you’ll see why!

Outside, the flowerbeds are full of colour much of the year and the bright blue “plumbago” plant is particularly striking, against the stone of the trullo. The pool, with its white walls and base, reflects the beautiful Mediterranean sky and seems very natural in the landscape. It sits on a sunny terrace, almost right outside the door, and is a wonderful place to relax.

Trullo Portarino is an idyllic romantic hideaway, especially wonderful for two – a veritable jewel – and its proud owners sincerely hope that guests will look after their little haven with as much loving care as they do themselves. The glazed wood-burning fireplace and heating make it a good choice for early and late lets too.

Smoking – Smoking is prohibited inside the trullo. We ask smokers to smoke outside only please.

Trullo Portarino is looked after by Sandro.

Review

What a way to spend my birthday!! We had a great time here. It’s more than we could have asked for. Many thanks to you, a great location & place to stay! The design is amazing inside out. Cheers! V&Y – London

We came with very high expectations and Trullo Portarino more than lived up to all of them! At every turn another little gem of design made our stay more comfortable and interesting. To say that our experience here was relaxing and refreshing – after a hard year of work – is an understatement. Thank you for allowing us to share your trullo and we hope we treated it with the love and respect it deserved. Stuart & Jan – N.Ireland

Coming to the end of a lovely 5 days at your trullo. Alberobello and Ostuni the favourites to see and the nearby recommended beaches and restaurants were great! The trullo is beautiful and wonderfully converted and thoughtfully prepared to welcome guests after their long journey. Thank you for a great stay. Janet & Tony.

Thank you for a most comfortable stay in this amazing building. Every care we had when we arrived seven days ago, flew away within 24 hours of the peaceful surroundings and comfortable beds. Trullo Portarino is the perfect antedote to a year of working too hard! We loved Cisternino, such a welcoming town – especially during festa; and Alberobello, Martina Franca and Ostuni didn’t disappoint either.
We were so sad to leave – you know you’ve done something right when your 9 year old son says “can we come here every year?” Thank you, Thank you. Alison, Andrew + Oliver

Thank you very much for the great welcome at Trullo Portarino, very much appreciated after our long journey. The trullo and pool are lovely, very tranquil and relaxing. Martina Franca, Locorotondo and Cisternino are all great places to visit and never disappoint, while your recommended beaches are excellent! Writing this after a wonderful meal in Cisternino, before setting off on the next leg of our journey… Thanks again for a wonderful, relaxing week. John & Pauline, Henley on Thames
