Activities/Attractions: Puglia has an extraordinary history of change, invaded by Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Normans, Suevians and Spanish who have all left undeletable traces of their civilizations. No town or city is the same so check out where to go and What to see! Puglia is very different from the better known regions of Italy like Tuscany and Umbria. It boasts:

  • excellent food, wine, olive oil
  • wonderful people - warm like the deep burnt orange colour of the soil
  • almost surrounded by sea so visitors opting to stay in the country still have a very short distance to travel to beautiful sandy beaches or interesting rocky bays

"I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our holiday at the Masseria. It was a delightful spot with very helpful and pleasant staff and the accommodation, though simple, was perfectly adequate. We were lucky to have the grounds and pool to ourselves for most of the week."

"I wanted you to know I had a super time at the hotel, and like you thought the whole set up was wonderful, plus the location, and the staff were just excellent including the Manager {Massimo} who was so helpful and obliging."

"Well our holiday has been and gone - like a dream! Just to say thank you for your help beforehand and while we were there. We were just relaxing when it was time to leave, it was so beautiful and peaceful, the beaches were lovely, but we run out of time to see all we wanted."

"Just to say many thanks, we had a beautiful holiday and were most impressed with the Trullo. 4/5 days was obviously far too short a time to really get a look at the surroundings but enough to lower the heart rate and raise a smile."

"We would like to thank you and Sergio for a great stay at the trulli. Sergio bent over backward to make sure we were comfortable. It was everything we expected and then some."

General Information: Apulia Bella started operating from Puglia, Italy in 2001 when it advertised one trullo to rent. Since that time it has grown enormously and now offers over 50 different holiday options from luxury villas with pools to the famous trulli.

  • A trullo is an ancient stone building particular to Central Puglia
  • No two trulli have the same shape or dimension because each trullo was built individually by hand
  • It has a circular, or square base and a cone-shaped cupola usually finished with a whitewashed pinnacle
  • Because of the structure and materials used, a "thermos" effect is created inside the trulli so that the temperature remains warm in winter and cool in the hottest summer months

A large number of the property owners are Italians who take great pride in maintaining and enhancing the original characteristics of their houses and their region and who cannot do enough to welcome visitors.

Other properties are owned by absentee landlords, many from Britain, who have adapted their houses to more northern European tastes. Thus the range of properties gives potential visitors the opportunity to try something different or opt for home from home accommodation.

Payment Accepted: Visa, MasterCard.

Rates: (Prices quoted in GB Pounds).

From 36/night
From 162/week


"Just wanted to say that we had a fantastic time at the Masseria. What a gem - the place is simply beautiful. It was a perfect location, close to the beaches but also near enough to various towns for evening entertainment and shopping."

"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the trullo. The accommodation itself was perfect, inside and out, with regard to its location also."

"We are so pleased that you mentioned SANT to us when we were enquiring about renting a Trullo. It was perfect - so comfortable and so well equipped."

"Just got home from our wonderful break in Ostuni and couldn't be happier! We wanted to thank you for helping to make our holiday possible! We found our accommodation excellent and our welcome very warm ... The welcome basket was a lovely touch and the information very helpful. We hope you will extend our thanks to them again."

"Thanks for your help - it was a great holiday and Eda was a fantastic hostess!"
