We had a fantastic stay in May 2012 at Madeleine and Jurs trullo villa nestled in the stunning Puglia countryside.
The villa itself was perfect for us, very tastefully decorated and furnished, with everything we could have needed and more (Jurs super comprehensive dvd filing system and full reviews was particluarly impressive, as were Madeleines pretty little touches around the villa). The pool was superb, and expertly maintained by Jur every other morning, and the private land surrounding the villa was dotted with cherry and olive trees. The villa was located well off the beaten track, so you are well away from just about everyone.
We were made to feel exceptionally welcome and they had really gone the extra mile in providing furniture for the children (4 and 2) as well as a bucket and spade set (bless!!). It seems as though they had thought of everything - even supplying an umbrella when the rain arrived.
The Puglia region was stunning, with every town having its own unique and interesting features. We had a few days of bad weather (unusual for the time of year), but thanks to the activities folder left by Jur, we found plenty to do in the surrounding area including the zoo safari park, the amusement park, the caves, Alberobello, the beaches (really beautiful), vineyard visits and loads more.
The whole family loved this holiday (not least because of the lack of tourists and the authenticity of the whole experience) and it was all made possible by Madeleine and Jur and their fantastic villa.
Couldnt recommend highly enough.
