Trullo Iduna is simply beautiful inside and out! The pool was incredible and really meant that you could make the most of the sunny weather and the sunsets in the evenings. We loved dining al fresco and enjoying the countryside views. We had a fantastic time and we would definitely return again, thank you Essential Italy!

Excellent area and trullo with a fabulous pool area! Renata was friendly, helpful and informative. The owner, Franco, could not have been more welcoming. The welcome pack of food and drink was excellent and very much appreciated. This has now become one of our favourite areas of Italy and I am sure we shall return.

Very well equipped and comfortable. Beautiful swimming pool and area around it. Stunning countryside and some lovely walks watching the goats grazing and admiring beautiful olive trees. Beautiful place to stay and gorgeous pool area. Lovely space for a family and we enjoyed the location and proximity to Martina Franca and Cisternino.
