This truly trendy trullo villa (sleeps 6-8) combines amazing original features with a fresh and funky interior which is as inspiring for grown ups as it is fun for kids.
The owners, the Massey family from London, transformed Trullo Fico in 2009, really doing an amazing job as the property had been empty for thirty years! Distinctive original features such as the conical ‘bee-hive’ barrelled ceilings and archways were restored to become focal points of the interior design, with striking modern art and stylish soft furnishings looking great against the rustic whitewashed walls. A family themselves the Massey's have incorporated all the mod cons and thoughtful added extras required for a totally relaxing family holiday.
Tardis-like, there’s more and more to Trullo Fico around every corner. Through one archway you’re in the 1950’s snug, complete with a cosy log fire, Danish leather sofa and retro teak armchair, a book library, flat screen TV with movie library and a 500w Teac Hi-Fi with digital radio, CD player and iPod dock. Turn through another arch and you could be in one of the three double bedrooms with designer touches including an Eames rocking chair, Tom Dixon Jack Lamp and Kartell Componabili bedside cabinets.
Of course, located in the sunny Puglia region of southern Italy, the outside is every bit as important as the interior and Trullo Fico is just as enticing on this front too. The villa is set in 3-acres of grounds which are filled with olive and fig trees,the latter of which guests are welcome to pick when ripe as the perfect accompaniment to the tasty local cheeses. There’s an attractive white stone patio area with plenty of loungers and space for making most of the sun. The inviting private pool (unfenced) is bound to be a big hit with the whole family. It's perfect for cooling off and there's even a bubbling jacuzzi section to makes it extra special. A funky cushion benched seating area with gazebo provides welcome shade in the day and a pretty spot for pre-dinner drinks in the evening overlooking the garden. For alfresco dining there's a covered outdoor dining area, with seating for eight complete with a BBQ and hidden speakers to listen to your favourite tunes on balmy Italian evenings, piped through from the high spec music system indoors.
Trullo Fico sleeps 6-8 guests, in three, air conditioned, double bedrooms plus pull-out beds/cots available on request. Overlooking the patio and pool, the sunny 'white bedroom' is the largest, with a double bed, triple wardrobe and antique chest of drawers, an Eames rocking chair and Tom Dixon Jack Lamp. The bedroom next door can be arranged as a twin or double, with fun, colourful decor making it suitable for children but also a retro feel that appeals to adults, with Kartell Componabili bedside cabinets and a double wardrobe. The third bedroom, known as the 'orange bedroom', has views to the rear of the house, with funky artwork, double bed, mirrored bedside tables, double wardrobe and an ensuite wetroom. Besides the bedrooms, Trullo Fico has a second wetroom, two reception rooms, a well equipped kitchen and a utility room with a washing machine.
The villa is just as well equipped for off season stays as it is for summer breaks. There's instant central heating, a log fire and double glazing.
Daily cleaning and catering can be arranged on request.
