Il Trullo & La Formica - Artvilla in Puglia

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

Far from the city noise and surrounded by the sound and scent of nature, Villa Giulia is the ideal place to relax and disconnect from the routine, immersed in a bucolic reality, among olive trees, and local vegetation. We will be very happy to host you in our home as part of the family to experience the peaceful atmosphere between nature, good food, creativity and inspiration. Here you'll have the chance to spend your holidays in a typical 'trullo' architecture, declared World Heritage Site by Unesco.

Our villa has 2 rooms with private bathrooms, a shared kitchen, a living room with 2 comfortable sofa bed, and 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 the private garden at the shade of a big gazebo, or visit the nearby dairy with a farm and all their animals: here you will have the chance to see how they make cheese and to taste a real 'mozzarella' and other typical genuine local products. During your stay you can walk around the area or visit the historic center of Putignano, a few km distance by car, famous for its Carnival, its typical restaurants, churches and museums. Do not forget to visit the enchanting 'Grotta del Trullo', a corner of underground wonders and then continue your journey discovering the 'Valle d'Itria' , the seaside and all the beauties of Apulia (Bari, Polignano, Alberobello, Lecce, Ostuni etc.).

If you prefer just to relax you'll be free to cool off in our little but lovely private swimming pool during the hottest hours, 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 the open air and all Apulian good vibes!
