The owners are lovely people, very kind. The breakfast was much more than we were expecting, very good. The Trulli we stayed in was very small but because it was so quaint it was fine. There was no ac so I don't know what it would be like in the heat of summer. The pool was big but we did not go in as it has a slight greenish hue to it so we wondered if it was actually shocked properly. Did not want to get an infection. This B and B needs a bigger sign on the main road as it is very hard to find. Also I would actually recommend staying somewhere right in town as this place is out in no mans land.

Thank you for what you appreciated. The pool is controlled manually and automatically every day. The water assumes the colors of reflection of the sky being the sand-colored coating. We do not hide that we are 6 km from the city. Those who come to us want the quiet of the countryside and not the confusion of the cities.

We booked 4 nights as a period of lazing in the sun and doing nothing while otherwise packing in a sightseeing tour of Italy. We got thunder and cloud! But that couldn't detract from the beauty and tranquillity of Fontana Vecchia. We stayed in Trullo Camino, a fabulous experience and lovely room - complete with very useful 'fridge. Bathroom was compact but had everything we needed and the bedvws extremely comfortable. Internet was temperamental, but we were on holidsy, so not really a major issue. Breakfasts were abundant and an education in local produce. Meats and cheeses from local towns, homemade preserves, wonderful pastries and superb espresso. Add to this the warm welcome and all round hospitality of our hosts and we couldn't have had a better stay - except maybe for some sunshine!

This is a great B&B inside a Trulli, half way between Putingnano and Alberobello and an excellent base to explore this area of Puglia. It is run by a lovely family and they do the best breakfast. Our room and bathroom are tastefully decorated with tv and immaculate in every way, which makes for a very comfortable stay. There is also a lovely pool and outdoor area surrounded by great countryside. Another plus is the WIFI.

This B&B is a hidden little gem. Access is via a dirt track. Leave nice car at home, we scratched both sides of our car on the bushes. Very pretty Trullo set in the grounds of an orchard. Inside it is surprisingly spacious. Fairly clean, quite a bit of dust on top of fridge and back of headboard on double bed, but remember we are in the orchards. No English tv. Our wifi didn't work. Lots of wildlife came visiting in the night and it was very cold at night with no option of additional blankets. However, the beds were comfortable and we had glasses for wine. The hosts supplied us with a lovely breakfast which was simple and fulfilling. We refered to our stay as Glamping. Would we go back? Absolutely.
