“Absolutely PERFECT”
Reviewed 29 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This was quite simply the best vacation rental I have ever had, everything was just too good to be true, from the way the villa was stocked for our arrival to the fabulous pool. After MUCH consideration only down side was no little fridge by the pool to keep your drinks cold nor a foot rest in lounge for when you watch tv - but this is being REALLY picky. Would return in a heart beat and the owners go out of their way to help should you need it. Beautifully quiet, yet not far from town and shops and gorgeous far-reaching views.

“A perfect place to relax and unwind”
Reviewed 26 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Trullo Caterina was the ideal accommodation for our stay in Puglia. It is central to lots of beautiful villages and the coast, so seeing the surrounding area is easy. But it is the trullo itself - along with the gardens, pool, secluded and shady areas that make it a pure delight. Add to that some unobtrusive and generous owners and an extremely well-mannered and friendly dog... and you've got yourself a little bit of Italian paradise! Ciao Jil, Andrew, James and Charlie - hope we can come back and see you again sometime.

“Lovely trullo for enjoying the Itria Valley”
Reviewed 2 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Jill and Andrew's beautifully converted trullo had everything we needed for a relaxing week in Puglia. Spotlessly clean and surrounded by a lovely garden with pool it's ideal for visiting the hill top towns of Cisternino, Ostuni, Martina Franca (recommended) and Locorotundo. Jill and Andrew are friendly and helpful hosts and we enjoyed the company of Charlie Pickle and the cats too.

“Great place to stay in Puglia”
Reviewed 18 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

person found this review helpful

We stayed for a week and used Trullo Caterina as a home base to tour the area. As other reviews have said, the trullo is very clean and comfortable. Jill stocks the kitchen with basic food, there is a supermarket handy in nearby Cisternino, and there is a street market almost every day in one nearby town or another. We fixed breakfast every morning and supper on several nights. The bathroom is large and modern, a contrast to many European apartments. Be warned that the bed is small: an American "full" bed size, so it can be tiny if you are used to a queen or king. We found that Jill, Andrew and James were helpful with local touring information and restaurant suggestions. And there was a good selection of town maps and information left by previous trullo occupants. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and highly recommend Trullo Caterina. It is a bit hard to find, though Jill sends clear directions for getting there the first time. It would be helpful for her to provide a better map so one could find it again when coming from other directions once there!
