Relax in a hot tub on the edge of the olive groves; hear the wind in the trees. These two chic retreats – one a trullo, the other a former store house – lie 100m apart, each a stroll from reception.
This young complex stands in the Valle d’Itria, a patchwork of green fields and tiny winding roads. The trullo, with its double-cone roof and cube-housed shower, has a bedroom under the first roof, and a jacuzzi under the other. The store-house suite, which is smaller, has its hot tub outside… at night you can soak under the stars. The owner, happy to shuttle you anywhere, comes in from Bari (40km) each day to set up a tasty breakfast by reception.
Set off on the (electric) bikes for Locorontondo (2km) and explore the beautiful Old Town. Sit in the sun and sip an Aperol spritz as you watch the world go by. Or dine under fairy lights at Restaurant U’Curdunn – the food is authentic and delicious.
