We are a family of four: a Professor of History and Philosophy; an artist who has exhibited her works in major theaters all around Europe; a screenwriter; and a cultural heritage management consultant. As you might imagine…creativity, commitment and enthusiasm are vital in everything we do!
When we first saw the property it was love at first sight. Our eyes filled with beauty and relaxation over this stunning view dominating an intimate valley of wholegrain fields, oaks, trulli tops and olive trees.
Our fingertips run over the centuries old rocks of the trullo, partially in ruins – and we had a glimpse of what it could become when renovated. After we bought the trulli and its 11000meters outdoors, for fifteen years we kept them intact…waiting for the right moment in which we could dedicate all the proper resources, time and energy to make this beautiful gem shine again.
Then, finally, after two years spent working with craftsmen and art conservators, searching for unique traditional pieces in local antiquity boutiques, and personally designing and taking care of every detail, the Trulli were reborn.
We called it Trulli of Stars because by night they shine even brighter – and because we are sure they hold a sparkle of magic!
The trullo dominates an intimate valley close to the jet-set favorite White City of Ostuni, pristine beaches of Costa Merlata, and picturesque towns (Cisternino, Locorotondo, Polignano, Ceglie Messapica, Martina Franca, Alberobello) and golf clubs of Valle d’Itria. Within reach of a day field-trip you can get to the enchanting Trani and Castel Del Monte, or to the Barocco jewel Lecce and crystal beaches of Salento.
We have been spending all of our holidays in this area for 30 years and it still hasn’t ceased to daily fascinate and surprise us! …We will be more than glad to share our love for this UNESCO World Heritage cradle with our guests – to make their Apulian experience truly unforgettable!
