Had ten days this July in Trulli Olivo and had a brilliant time - four of us including two teenage sons! The Trulli is well and truly (!) hidden down a track and during the ten days the only other traffic past was a farmer to check on his vines. The accomodation is very well presented - beautiful bathroom and well organised kitchen with dishwasher etc. The view from the dining table is great. And sharing a swimming pool with only one other family was such a luxury!. The photos on the website have been recently updated and are very accurate, but there's a couple of things that aren't quite up to date, eg there's no internet access in the trulli for those who can't leave work or facebook behind!!
Whilst we were there the area enjoyed two freak mediterranean storms that nearly washed the whole road away. This meant driving to and from the trulli really nerve racking, particularly in our little hire car! However things are in hand to smooth it over for the rest of the season. The pool is also having a makeover at the end of the season - some of the paint is worn and flaking, again aggravated by the storm.
The area the trulli is in is definately the best of Puglia - there's always something going on in Alberobello but you'd better get in quick before other tourists discover the area. There's evidence of building and rennovation going on in most towns but, as yet, very few english tourists!
