Trulli and Cummerse… A different holiday!
Trulli and Converse dating back to the late-18th century are leased with B&B formula in the peerless and charming setting of Alberobello’s old-town centre, a world heritage site.
You’ll be absolutely amazed by the numerous ripples of the old hand-worked stones, full of curiosity for the appealing roofs covered with chiancarelle (stone blocks), overawed by the elegance of the original neat and comfortable interiors where nothing is left to chance – the beauty of an old-town centre that still has that human touch.
There are many reasons for choosing a holiday like this. All kinds of guests in terms of professions and nationalities have come to visit me to date. All of them found a smile and the warm hospitality of my region awaiting them; all of them appreciated the peace and quiet and small and large ancestral gestures of the faming civilisations of old the trulli and cummerse, the miles of dry walls that retain the centuries-old strength of the myriad olive trees, in their sparkling green and silver guise.
The colours, the food, the smiles, the gestures, a great canvas whose beauty is enhanced in the eyes of our guests, who help us maintain this part of unforgotten southern Italy. The real satisfaction for someone like myself, who has dedicated himself passionately to the philological recovery of these old houses, is to convey emotions to my guests; when in the eyes of those who are leaving I notice a touch of regret, then I realise that the real magic of the trulli consists in touching the deepest strings of our hearts and representing a chance for us to rediscover something of that Romanticism and lightheartedness lost in the chaos of modern life.
