First of all, one small explanation: Trulli Holiday has two kinds of trulli accommodation - firstly trullis in the city of Alberobello itself, secondly Trulli residence, which is a group of trulli and non-trulli buildings some 1 km from Alberobello center. I believe the reviews are mixed here. Breakfast is for both types served in inn in the center, so it is quite far from residence (we did not take it, so I can't comment it more).
We have chosen the residence outside center and it was really great. Our trulli room was quite small with no kitchenette, but both these facts were properly announced before so no surprise for us (they have different kinds of room as well). On the other side, it was absolutely clean and the feeling of staying in one of those buildings was amazing.
Residence has very beautiful garden and small swimming pool (cap is required), all very tranquil and relaxing - for us much better than staying directly in town with the door opened to the street.
It is possible to go to the town on foot, but there are also bicycles free to use so it is quite easy to get there (a bit uphill on the way back). Contrary to the city trullis, there is parking space in the residence (in the area, so behind the gate).
The owner is very enthusiastic and friendly, so we felt nearly as at home.
So, only small minuses are the location of breakfast in restaurant La Locanda don Antonio (we didn't try a dinner there as it was full and reservation was needed in advance) and even reception in the city center (it was impossible to park before the reception).
