About the villa
A fabulous example of the region’s multi-coned trulli houses, I Gelsi is top to toe in exposed stone, from pale-toned flag floors, to walls a metre thick, broad arches in beautifully vaulted bedrooms, and cleverly designed shower rooms, utilising nooks and crannies as handy storage shelves. Though all this keeps the house naturally cool, nothing is left to chance at the much loved and well-designed villa, so air conditioning takes its place among a list of contemporary facilities, which includes WiFi and an iPad; and the house is furnished to a high standard throughout. A very adaptable villa for groups of friends or family, four of the five guest rooms have en suite bath or shower room, most are flexibly furnished for twin or double use, and there is a barrel-arched single room with access to an upper terrace. Within the grounds are several areas for lounging and dining, in sunshine or shade; a portable barbecue for lunches al fresco; and a generously sized swimming pool, set in a pretty paved terrace. I Gelsi is just 4km from amenities in Alberobello, with several small towns within 20km, and a trio of beaches within 30km.
