About Alison

We first came to Alberobello in 2005 and fell in love with it. I had spent time in the North of Italy, which I love very much, but the South is just so different. We immediately bought a small apartment and then spent the next two years coming here for weekends and holidays as much as we could. One year we visited 9 times!

Alison purchased this villa in 2007

Why Alison chose Martina Franca

We wanted something close to the wonderful town of Alberobello, being such a tourist town it is never quiet and there is always something going on and restaurants open whatever time of year you visit.

What makes this villa unique

Our trullo is one of the few large trulli that have all the bedrooms off of the main living area; you don’t need to go outside to get to the main part of the house. We have a very large games room which is excellent when too hot to go outside, or some extra space for children to play in. The heated pool is a wonderful addition. The pizza oven makes for a great evenings entertainment as well as good pizzas. As we live locally we are always on hand for any information or help that you may need. We can also arrange a private chef, or a local lady to come to the house and prepare you a traditional meal, where you make the pasta!

Guestbook comments from the owner

'The photographs didn't do the trullo justice, the inside is stunning and far bigger than we expected' - Mr & Mrs McKinney, Oxfordshire. 'The location is handy for visiting all the attractions in the area, and not far from the beach' - Mr & Mrs Honor, Northamptonshire.

'We had such a fantastic holiday - we will definitely go again next year' - Mr& Mrs Holmes, Cambridgeshire

Stunning trullo with every need fully catered for

  • 5 of 5

Nothing was too much trouble for the owners of this gorgeous trullo

Best equipped holiday accommodation we have ever stayed in, every possible need was catered for from an amazing games room and nightlights for the children to a beautiful courtyard for evening meals for the adults

Simple things often overlooked like having enough loungers and chairs for all.

stunning pool area, thoughtfully included both sun traps and shady spots for respite from the heat

enough areas that even with a full house privacy and peace was guaranteed if needed

Lovely friendly helpful owners who were happy to help out at any point

Great location to see beautiful Alberobello and Locorotondo

Pasta night provided enough food for three whole days so great value and was a really nice experience

The children adored the play area and trampoline and the games room was a huge hit with young and adults alike

Fab family holiday with everything we could need

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week with lovely weather - the trullo has everything you could need. The pool, bikes and games room kept everyone entertained and the local villages were beautiful. We had a lovely meal cooked by Palma and her family (lots of food, did us another night too), also had a go with the pizza oven which was great fun, pizza will never be the same again! Very comfy and relaxing week had by all.

Brilliant family Trullo with exceptional facilities - first class

  • 5 of 5

Alison and Chris have the formula spot on. Nothing too much trouble. Excellent response to all our needs and a very friendly approach to running a truly spectacular place. It's a kids and adults paradise with every need catered for. Great pool and games room, kids garden furniture and trampoline. Bikes galore and a games/cinema room in case the weather changes or for a evening get together. Local wine a steal and very good. Would not hesitate to recommend to any that like luxury. We had a party of 7 adults and two children under three. You can lock off the pool for children which makes it completely safe for little ones - a real safe touch

Fantastically well equipped Trullo!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fab time at Alison and Chris's beautiful Trullo! It was very comfortable and had every amenity you could with for - from amazing pool, garden and games room to a fully equipped kitchen and ensuite bathrooms. The location was great with many stunningly beautiful villages and towns around and Alison and Chris on hand for any questions and recommendations.

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

The house was amazing with excellent facilities.

Alison and Chris were most helpful - supplying us with shopping on our late arrival and arranging a pizza evening at the house with Guiseppe which was amazing.

The local town of Alberobello is well worth a visit to see the traditional trulli buildings.

The games room was an added bonus even for the grown ups!

Perfect property for a group holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed as a group of 7 30somethings and 2 under 2's for one week in June. The trullo was perfect and wonderfully equipped, particularly for the babies.

On arrival we were met by Chris and Alison, who were incredibly welcoming, explained everything we needed to know and were easily contactable throughout our stay.

We booked a few of the food in the trullo evenings which were amazing. Pizza night ended up lasting for 2 nights as Giuseppe brought so many freshly made dough balls we had to save some for the next day and pasta making night with Palma and 3 generations of her family was a wonderful experience (not to mention filling!)

As beautiful as the trullo is, it's the outside space that truly makes this place. The pool was spotless, the courtyard roomy and perfectly shaded. The gardens provided hours of entertainment with a large trampoline, children's play centre and pétanque pitch.

The games room was also well utilised, by day, by the children, where it was a welcome relief from the midday sun with more toys than they knew what to do with and in the evening, by the adults with pool, table tennis, fuseball and darts tournaments!

We would love to return and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone wanting a touch of luxury on a visit to the region.

Special interest holidays:

We are happy to arrange a Pasta Making Evening. One of our neighbours is only too delighted to come to the Trullo and make fresh pasta with you and then prepare an evening meal. Everything that she makes has either been home grown or home made.

We can arrange for a private pizza making evening at the trullo where you can have a go at making them and you get to eat them, it's a really great evening.

Or a Private Chef can come to the Trullo to prepare and cook a meal for you.

Beautician available and private swimming lessons from a qualified instructor.


1km to the local village shop, 1km to the nearest restaurant, just 5km to Alberobello and 3km to Locorotondo with many restaurants, open all year round. There are many places to visit and things to do in the local region, from the caves at Castellana Grotte and Putignano, to the cave dwellings at Mottola and Massafra. The coast has an abundance of villages, harbours and beaches from the remote and quiet to lively ones dotted with cafes, bars and restaurants.
