The Trullo San Pietro was exactly as described on your website and by yourselves, it was very private and the pool was delightful, the accommodation was clean and comfortable and although basically equipped in the kitchen more than adequate. Our cleaning lady was lovely and very efficient. The area was very interesting, the second week was extremely hot!
