Our newly renovated trullo with its own private 10m x 5m pool is set in a 3.7 acre cherry orchard and offers a relaxing holiday in the fairytale setting of the Valle d'Itria.
The Cherry Tree trullo was constructed in 1903 and has 8 cones (conical rooftops). It is found at the end of a lane, 15 min drive from Martina Franca, Alberobello and Locorotondo, in the unspoilt countryside of the Valle dItria. The Cherry Tree trullo has a private pool and is set in the middle of a 3.7 acre cherry orchard which is completely surrounded by a dry stone wall. Newly renovated (May 2007) it provides superb accommodation for up to 5 people.
Beside the trullo is a terrace which is shaded by a pergola and has a barbecue and patio furniture.
Roman steps lead into the private 5m x 10m pool which has a shallow end of 1.00m and a deep end of 2.20m. There is a terrace with sun beds and an outside shower beside the pool.
A car is essential to enjoy the surrounding area.
The Olive Harvest - we collect our olives in early to mid November at the Cherry Tree Trullo, only on warm sunny days otherwise it is not a pleasure. We usually picnic (with our own wine, of course!). The olives are taken to the olive mill for pressing into our own delicious, extra virgin olive oil.
You are welcome to join us for the harvest.
Beautifully restored trullo in peaceful area. Approx 10 mins drive to martina franca lovely town with good choice of restaurants. If you want a relaxing break in an authentic italian area then this is for you. Basic italian highly recommended when ordering food,etc. trullo owners very helpful and welcoming and nearby if help needed.

Cherry Tree Trullo is a gem of a holiday villa. It is set in a beautiful, romantic and rural location. The trullo is rustic yet comfortable - it well-equipped - with a great range of films on DVD, and very tastefully decorated, and it is perfect for a family with two children. The pool was larger than anticipated, and very necessary as it was very hot during the daytime. We loved Martina Franca and the surrounding area, and there is plenty to do and see. Madeline and Jur were amazingly helpful - getting a Doctor to see our son who had an ear infection and rescuing us when we got lost! They provided lovely touches like fresh herbs and their own olive oil, they also did a shop for us pre arrival, which was a great help as we arrived in the evening with two hungry boys. We loved our week at the Cherry Tree Trullo and would highly recommend it.

This is a fabulous trulli in a beautiful setting. There is everything there that you could possibly need for a wonderful holiday. The property is well maintained and has all those extra touches not normally associated with a holiday rental home, the owners Madeleine and Jur make sure you have everything you need and are always on hand if required. The local towns are all within easy driving distance and have numerous fantastic restaurants, local markets and that lovely Italian feel. We would love to stay here again.

We enjoyed a fantastic two weeks at the Cherry Tree Trullo for our honeymoon. The property was peaceful, extremely well furnished and it was clear that every aspect of the guests comfort had been well thought about.
Madeleine and Jur were extremely helpful, giving us a warm welcome and were on hand should we require any advice.
The trullo came equipped with a good library of books and DVDs, perfect for relaxing in the evenings. The pool was well maintained throughout (if a little cold in October!) and the surroundings couldnt be more peaceful.
We wouldnt hesitate in recommending this property for anyone wishing to visit Puglia - thanks for a wonderful honeymoon!

We visited the Cherry Tree Trullo in June 2008 and were delighted to find it was everything we expected and more. The area is beautiful and unspoilt, and so you experience the "real" Italy.
The food was incredible, all local specialities were available close by in Martina Franca. The Trullo is a stunning place to rest and relax - surrounded by countryside, other trullos and a variety of wild creatures.
The welcome we received from Mad and Jur was so warm and friendly, and they continued this throughout the stay, leaving fresh vegetables and herbs on our doorstep, and introducing us to some fabulous food,cafe-bars and restaurants. Never intrusive, they clearly love the region and want their guests to come away with wonderful memories of Southern Italy.
Highly recommended to couples, small families and friends.

Situated in a very peaceful area, Cherry Tree Trullo has been beautifully restored and modernised. The property is well equipped and has a lovely pool and outdoor seating areas. The owners could not have been more helpful and made our stay that bit more pleasurable. Highly recommended.
