May 2015 "...We have just returned from a weeks holiday in Puglia. We stayed in the Trullo Santa Stefano, San Michele Salentino and would just like to say a HUGE thank you for such a wonderful holiday. We have just had one of the best holidays ever, and have no hesitation at all in recommending Trullo Santa Stefano as a holiday destination. We had plenty of space, the swimming pool was used every day (usually after a day out), the BBQ was also used, the garden was very well tended, the house was clean and well equipped and we will certainly be returning one day. We met the owners on the day we arrived and again the morning we left, they were friendly and very informative and helpful. Puglia has so much to offer, the food, the wine, the hilltop villages and towns, the scenery in general and, of course, the sunshine! Thank you again, we shall be back!!"

August 2013 "...We had a really wonderful time at Trullo Santo Stefano, it was absolutely perfect for us and we certainly recommend it highly to all your customers. We have already passed recommendations to our friends and family of both the property and Cottages to Castles. Trullo Santo Stefano was absolutely charming as were the owners. The grounds were idyllic, so many fruits growing; figs, grapes, kiwi, peaches, plums, apples, pears, limes and even strawberries. There were even large herb bushes growing near the BBQ area, so plenty of rosemary and sage on hand! Beautiful gardens, well maintained provided a really relaxing environment around the pool. Plenty of natural shade if required, and two large areas of shade where you could dine outside - one under the Grape vines and Kiwi. The pool was clean and well maintained, just large enough for the property. The grounds were well lit, so you could enjoy the evenings until late. Security was good with electric gates and the Trullo was secure and alarmed too. The a Trullo itself was a dream. Cool inside when hot outside, and air-con in every room if you ever needed it. Two well equipped kitchens provided everything we needed when eating in. Although the BBQ and Pizza ovens were firm favourites, the owners even provided a plentiful wood stack to fuel both them them for the whole time we were there. Apart from the excellent facilities inside the Trullo, outside was impressive too with dinning tables and chairs, outside sink and washing lines and even an outdoor shower (hot and cold) at the back of the property. A three piece garden suite outside to relax on was great in the evenings. The area was very quiet with only very faintly heard voices from the neighbouring Trullo some way away. Overall the property was well appointed and rustic, which gave it a "lived in feel" that allowed us to relax fully. This region of Italy is simply superb. Great weather, 2 weeks of sunshine in August with deep blue skies, no clouds and no rain. Temperatures in the low-mid 30's in the day and high 20's at night, along with ever present cooling breezes, provided the perfect opportunity to do everything we wanted. Brindisi only 20 minutes away (very handy for the airport, but no noise from aircraft at the Trullo) really nice town too, would also recommend Alberobello, Oria, Lecce (only an hour by car), Gallipoli (about an hour and a half) and the beautiful white sandy beaches at Campomarino. Despite the peak season, traffic was never a problem, no queues, restaurants available freely without reservations etc. Eating out great value, Pizzas typically €4 or €5, top restaurants about €25 per head including wines and drinks. Wine from this region is soooo good. Locals very relaxed and really friendly. Would highly recommend a good Sat Nav system (Google maps hopeless), for the first few days, as finding your way back to the Trullo after a trip out, can be VERY difficult, especially in the dark. All roads look the same and no land marks, just rows and rows of ancient olives trees!! As mentioned at the start, the owners were delightful. Vita Bellanova speaks very good English (not widely spoken in this region) and is very helpful. The owners fully respect your privacy and will not even visit without your permission, yet they are always on hand if you need anything. If you are considering this Trullo for your holiday, go for it - you will be delighted. "

August 2011 "...Dear Sarah, Trullo Santo Stephano was a truly wonderful place to stay. The villa itself is charming- a traditional Trullo but with all mod cons. There is a lovely pool surrounded by a very attractive garden with plenty of both shaded and unshaded areas. We were there in late August when we were asked to help ourselves to all the surrounding fruit trees, which included figs, peaches, apples and the most delicious grapes. There were kiwi fruit also but not yet ripe. It really felt like the garden of Eden. It is away from any major roads and the few houses nearby are too far away to cause any disturbance. The owner was both welcoming and unobtrusive and the house and gardens are beautifully maintained. There are pleasant towns to visit within easy drive, but much less in the way of major cultural sites than in more Northern areas of Italy. However we felt it was no great hardship not to spend days culture bashing, but rather relaxing around the pool and in the shade of the verranda. Just a couple of tiny caveats: I would strongly suggest coming with a GPS- navigation is not easy with so many small roads looking very much the same. Secondly, there are two parts to the trullo which I understand can be let seperately, something that was not especially easy to spot on the website. A second look shortly before we were due to go did mention the possibility of paying extra for the use of both parts. We were releaved to find that the other half was free anyway and we were allowed to use the whole house for no extra charge. Overall- hugely recommended Very many thanks for a wonderful holiday, Phil"

May 2011 "...We had a really enjoyable stay at Trullo Santo Stefano. The house was spotlessly clean and the garden and grounds were beautifully maintained and very secure. Wonderful pool and all the amenities to hand (bbq, pizza oven etc) for a fantastic holiday and a sufficiently equipped kitchen to cook indoors if you didn't want to go out. The owners could not have been nicer and more welcoming. Mrs Vita Bellanova speaks excellent English and is very helpful. The arrangements to meet and greet worked perfectly well. There was a welcome pack on the table for us with milk and water already in the fridge. It is area that absolutely needs a car for getting around. The nearest shops are at least 10 minutes drive away. We were very pleased and impress and would be happy to recommend this excellent property to other."

August 2010 "...The trullo was beautiful, well equipped and very private. The owners were very friendly and helpful and, after meeting us on arrival, we were able to contact them by telephone during our stay to arrange linen deliveries at convenient times, etc. We would certainly be happy to recommend this property to friends. One small suggestion: A map of the locality would have been very helpful at the beginning of our stay. We arrived after dark and were guided to the property, which is remote, by the owners. This meant that we really had little idea of where we were when setting off the next day and the many fields of olive groves provide few landmarks. However, the visitors' book contained a lot of helpful feedback and recommendations from previous guests and helped us to plan days out, perhaps better than any official guide. All in all, a great property and a really good holiday."

June 2008 "...Thank you for letting us stay in this fairytale trulli. It is the best villa we have stayed in for quality and comfort.Stunning place, pool and setting who can ask for more.Puglia has found its way to becoming our favourite part of Italy, people friendly and even with our shockingly Italian (classes in Sept. for sure). Our recommandation we also tried Al Brigantino in San Michele Salentino, a little but nice town, and for fish lovers we found it to be exactly what we needed.The chef letting us down to the individual Oyster+fish. As for helpful tips where to start so many places to see, for a Cave which is well worth the trip Grotte di Castellana is lovely; tours in English at 11am+4pm while you are waiting for your time to come round, pop up to Conversano although there is a lot of restoration going on its lovely+so is the Icecream. You can't come all this way and miss a few other towns in that direction as well Locorotondo for its position+ beauty, Martina Franca and its market (wednesday 8-12am), Ostuni a shining example of how we expected Puglia to be. Taranto is nice for a trip, the old town is incredible. Lecce was a lovely afternoon/evening although museum and castle were a little sparse! Gallipoli again in the old town a lovely wonder you can eat in a cool breeze overlooking the beach, visit the olive press for a trip although quick through history.Highlight for us Alberobello, but go late we went out 8.30pm when most tourists are gone and the shops are shut! Thank you again Puglia .We will be back!!"

July 2009 "...We enjoyed our peaceful stay at this beautiful Trullo. We visited Gallipoli and went to Bosco Verde beach. In the evening we went to the beautiful city of Lecce where we had a lovely meal and enjoyed the architecture and typical Italian atmosphere. Puglia is a wonderful part of Italy which we are sure to revisit in the future."

September 2008 "...Lovely peaceful trullo, really enjoyed our stay, thank you! Very well equipped. We ate out a few times, and enjoyed fantastic sea-bass at Brigantino's, and the owner/chef was charming. 3-course meal +wine was euro 87. Our other recommandationis a tiny restaurant in Ostuni 'Osteria Sparacina', via Accidiacono Zaccaria not far from entrance to old quarter. Absolutely superb meal interesting food, not hugely expensive. Best old city by a long way: Martina Franca old town. Also enjoyed all to others: Cisternino, Ostuni, Locorotondo, Castellana Grotte caves.Lecce to be visited on last day. Puglia and Valle d'Itria altogether fascinating, quite different places."
Mrs. Wood
June 2008 "...A brilliant trullo in a lovely area of Italy. The best place to eat is definitely at Brigantino's in San Michele Salentino.the chef there is very friendly and lets you pick the particular fish/lobster ecc.. you want. For days out, Gallipoli and Polignano coasts are brilliant.Lecce and Alberobello are highly recommended. "

August 2008 "...Trullo Santo Stefano was 'truly wonderful'! Beautiful accomodation to help with a fantastic, relaxing break. Children enjoyed pool so much, so they didn't want to go out of it! Visits to Alberobello, Lecce, Oria, Otranto added to a wonderful holiday. We will be definitely planning a return trip! Ciao!"

August 2007 "...We had an absolutely super holiday. The trullo is beautiful and very special. The pool is grea - very refreshing on a hot day! You made us feel very welcome and were very helpful- thank you. We have had a great time towns, countryside and beaches. A truly relaxing holiday in fantastic holiday home. We would definitely recommend it! Grazie mille! "

June 2009 "...A fantastic holiday in a beautiful traditional trulli. Great places to visit are: Alberobello and Lecce (especially the little tar train..) To buy an yar food thee are two big hypermarkets 'Auchan' and 'Ipercoop' ex Carrefour, head to Mesagne and turn off the motorway at 'zona industriale' for 'Auchan ' and carry to the motorway for 'Ipercoop'. We made use of the BBq and pizza oven (the traditional Italian wood oven)!!! don't be afraid of the pizza oven: throw some wood in it burn down to embers and move embers to one side, sliding in pizzas on the other side!!! Total great experience Pavi, kaye, Lucy and Amy"
