Puglia, or Apulia in Italian, is the long strip of land 400km from North to South that makes up the ‘heel’ of Italy.
For centuries it was a strategic provenience, colonized, invaded and conquered (like its neighbours, Calabria and Sicily) by just about every major power of the day – from the Greeks through to the Spanish. These days, clean seas, reliable sunshine and beautiful landscapes are the draw for holiday makers.
Puglia has been a popular holiday destination for Italians for some time. In more recent years foreign visitors are discovering what makes Puglia the perfect holiday destination. Trulli Talily is nestled in the heart of Valle d’Itria, probably the most appealing area in Puglia. The Valle d’Itria is an undulating plateau in the centre of the province containing some of Puglia’s prettiest landscapes.
Unique to this area are ‘Trulli’ which are dotted throughout Puglia countryside with olive groves, vineyards, cherry, peach and almond orchards, all neatly partitioned by dry-stone walls. Trulli are ancient cylindrical buildings with thick white limestone walls and stone conical roofs. Often attached are ‘lamia’, a barrel roofed stone building. These ancient stone buildings were lived in by the agricultural community to keep cool in the heat and warm in the winter. Local expertise is required to refurbish the ancient stone.
Trulli Talily provides an excellent example of the unique and traditional stone construction whilst providing chic-style and all of the modern conveniences you need to enjoy your holiday in Puglia.
