Find your perfect holiday villa or your Trullo in Valle d’Itria with SopranoVillas’ wide selection of properties for couples, families or large groups of friends. The Valle d’Itria area is located in the famous southern Italian region of Puglia. While the name Valle d’Itria would likely lead one to imagine the area to be a valley, this would in fact be incorrect as the area is actually more of a large depression. The traditional trullo structure is what most people associate with the Valle d’Itria area – but did you know that these structures were built in this way for money saving reasons? Argricultural workers built the trullo structures as temporary dwellings and it is thought that due to the high property taxes they were built in a way which allowed them to be easily broken down. In fact, some say that the best built trullo could be completely dismantled by removing a single brick. Of course that is not the case today, with many of the structures having been restored to host luxury vacation accommodations!
Valle d’Itria is not only famous for its traditional trullo structures. Large olives grow in abundance in the area, making it a great location to sample and buy some of the world’s best olive oils. While many people associate Tuscany with Italian wines, the Valle d’Itria area produces outstanding wines such as the red Primitivo di Mandurai, or the white Locorotondo or Martina Franca. Each of the main cities in Valle d’Itria – Alberobello and Locorotondo close to Bari, Ceglie Messapica closer to Brindisi and Martina Franca closer to Taranto – have their own unique character and are easily discoverable from SopranoVillas’ unique vacation rentals. Getting to your holiday villa in Valle d’Itria may be easier than you think, with an international airport located in the city of Brindisi. From Brindisi you can easily catch a shuttle bus or rent a car, which allows for the opportunity to explore all Puglia has to offer.
