Wanderlust : A man’s trulli is his castle, Trullallè, Apulia, Italy

I’ve written before about my love for Apulia. We’ve only been there once, but the land has made a very good impression on me. I mean to go back there, and most importantly I mean to stay in a trulli next time!

For those of you unaware of the trulli situation, they are typical stone buildings of the region, featuring unmistakable conical roofs. They were originally meant for agricultural use, but some of them have been re-purposed and renovated these last few years. They are particularly abundant is the Valle D’Itria, or as they say on Trullalè‘s website, “Trulli-shire” (yes, that’s where hobbits would have lived in if they had been hooked on burrata instead of cheddar).

But back to Trullallè, which is a small website on which you can find a particularly gorgeous collection of these trulli (one trullo, two trulli, my Italian stops here) to rent. What I love about them is that the selection ranges from small, intimate ones to more rural-castle ones, all with different takes on the interior design. There is one with a vintage 70’s look, one with a folk feel or one with an all-beige natural look, go check them out!

Some of them have pools, a very good upgrade if you ask me.

    Je découvre ton blog et je suis émerveillée par ton talent, tant de douceur au travers tes photos, tu as ce petit truc en plus…
    Je rêve des Pouilles depuis si longtemps, je n’habite pas loin (en Corse) mais je n’ai encore jamais eu l’occasion d’y aller, alors j’espère bientôt, en tous cas ton article m’a donné envie de m’y replonger… Hâte de lire la suite de tes aventures à travers le monde…

    Une belle semaine à toi,
