Trullo Mandorla is a unique self-catering villa, or trullo with a lovely pool, in the countryside of Cisternino, Puglia exclusive to Long Travel. It has a real sense of privacy.

Trullo Mandorla is in a lovely elevated location, just over 2km from Cisternino. Semi-detached from Long Travel’s other exclusive trulli Trullo Zingaro by about one and a half metres of thick stone wall, Long Travel guests’ privacy is assured, with the use of impressive dry stone walls, landscaping and tree planting, and by providing totally separate driveways, parking areas and outside spaces, which are also opposite-facing. The trulli houses are actually very separate and private from one another. With lovely views, and set in two and a half acres, they dominate the landscape and are admired by all Long Travel clients and locals alike. In fact, Long Travel’s Trullo Zingaro & Mandorla are so wonderful that a well-known Italian television channel featured them in a programme about trullo renovation, as superb examples.

Trullo Mandorla has two terraces, one of which has a built-in barbecue and an arched pergola shade. Both terraces overlook open grounds, with ancient olive trees, almonds, oaks, pomegranates and countless other native trees and shrubs and there is so much space that guests can follow the sun (or the shade) around, until the very last rays disappear – pure heaven. A short path winds its way to the “hidden” pool, shared only with Trullo Zingaro. As if there in secret, the pool sits, in sheltered seclusion and privacy, behind tall dry stone walls, but is open at one end to enjoy the lovely panorama- absolute heaven! This is the only one of Long Travel’s trulli that allows children so it is the perfect choice for families who want a touch of luxurious self-catering.

Always a special example of a trullo, inside Trullo Mandorla is fascinating. Masses of exposed stone, an unusual star-vaulted ceiling, and a “Sovrano-type” cone, lit as a special feature, give it immense character. The living area is quite open-plan, with contemporary whites and greys and olive greens, and with some really interesting local ceramics.

Trullo Mandorla is even well-stocked with wine from the neighbour’s vineyard (and an honesty box) – ridiculously reasonably priced, it has proved to be very popular indeed! Another highlight is the olive oil – extra virgin, cold press and as organic as it gets, it is Pugliese oil at its best.

Note there is no age limit on this trullo, well behaved children respectful of its beauty are welcome!
