We are Ian & Penny Ledger. We run a successful holiday let business on a farm in East Sussex, UK and Ian has had a successful career designing and managing property refurbishments and construction projects. We hope that this experience is evident when booking your stay at Trulli Talily.
Before getting married in 2003 we had a romantic dream of owning a trullo in Puglia. In 2008 we scoured the region, looking at hundreds of plots, until we found the perfect location, setting and trullo for country-chic bliss.
In Italy there is a tradition of naming properties after the daughters in the family. ‘Trulli’ is the type of buildings. ‘Talily’ is named after our daughters, Tabitha and Matilda-Lilly.
The trullo and lamia buildings have been restored using traditional methods, preserving the cultural heritage of the region.
We have environmental and community plans in place. The environmental plan includes a target of 0% landfill and encouraging wildlife with areas for taller grass and log piles. All of our management, cleaning and maintenance services are carried out by neighbours in the immediate community, who understand and help promote our values. We all rely on each other to sustain our micro-economy. By attracting customers with similar values to ours we help to build good relationships between visitors and the local community, providing economic and environmental benefits for the community and a very warm welcome for our guests.
“Puglia is one of my favourite parts of Italy. The place oozes rustic charm and character and is the perfect place to escape everyday life and lose yourself in a bygone era. Trulli houses look like something out of a fairy tale and at Trulli Talily you get the chance to experience an authentic piece of real Italy.”

Trulli Talily is located in a peaceful, countryside setting…
For centuries it was a strategic provenience, colonized, invaded and conquered by just about every major power of the day…
