Il Trullo e La Formica and its 300 years-old Trulli in Puglia

ABOUT THE 'VILLA'

Far from the city noise and surrounded by the sound and scent of nature, my family 'villa' is the place

where I love to go to relax and disconnect from the urban routine, immersed in a bucolic reality.

I'll be very happy to host you in our home to experience the peaceful atmosphere among olive trees, local vegetation, good food, creativity and pure inspiration. Here you'll also have the chance to spend your holidays in a typical 'trullo'

architecture, declared World Heritage Site by Unesco.

Our villa has:

a double room with a private bathroom,

a master room with bathroom,

a shared kitchen,

a living room with 2 comfortable and big sofa beds,

a cozy space in the 'trulli' area where you can have your breakfast or just sit to read and spend your time.

You can also enjoy your breakfast or dinner outside, in our private garden at the shade of a big gazebo,

or visit the nearby cheese factory with a farm and all their animals where yo'll have the chance to taste a real 'mozzarella',

'burrata' and all the typical genuine local products.

During your staying you can walk around the area to relax in nature or at a few km distance by car,

you can visit the historic center of Putignano, a typical ancient village filled with narrow streets, small squares surrounded by enchanting loggias and also famous for its Carnival, the typical restaurants, churches and museums.

Do not forget to visit the small but enchanting 'Grotta del Trullo', a corner of underground wonders to continue your journey discovering the seaside and all the beauties of Apulia: Alberobello, Martina Franca, Castellana Grotte, Grottaglie, Bari, Polignano, Lecce, Ostuni etc.)

If you just prefer to relax, you'll be free to cool off in our little but lovely private swimming pool during the hottest hours

or during the evening, with a refreshing drink in one hand and our typical apulian 'tarallo' in the other! ;D

 

We hope to host you soon in this piece of paradise and to make you live a memorable time,

focused on nature and all Apulian good vibes!

Enjoy all Apulian vibes with us & enhance your creativity! :D

HANDMADE PIZZA & PANZEROTTO

While staying at our villa, you could also enjoy some Apulian experience like

making - and eating! - a homemade Pizza or our very typical street food 'Panzerotto',

filled with fresh tomato sauce, mozzarella and other irrestistible ingredients,

fried or cooked in our wood-fired oven, always surrounded by nature in a warm atmosphere.

Join us for an unforgettable Apulian party!

JEWELRY MAKING & CERAMIC LABS

During your staying at our Artvilla, you have the chance to enhance your practical and creative skills attending some jewelry making or ceramic workshops with me. I will guide you to create your own piece inspired by the local vegetation, architecture or anything you might like.

I'd be very happy to host you at my family ArtVilla to let you live a memorable time,

focused on creativity and all Apulian good vibes!
