Up and down Italy’s Apulian coast, the fields are spiked with trulli. These traditional dry stone huts have beautiful white conical roofs that poke out of the landscape. And though they were often originally built as storehouses or temporary shelters for farm workers, now they are increasingly being turned into charming, historic holiday rentals.
This trullo, near the gorgeous whitewashed town of Ostuni, is one of the prettiest we’ve seen yet. Available to rent on Airbnb this October and November, the small private hut boasts a bathroom, kitchenette and outdoor dining area, along with access to a rather striking infinity pool (which is shared with two other properties).
It’s the perfect set-up for a romantic weekend away. At £45 ($59, A$82) a night, it’s pretty affordable. And frankly, you’d struggle to picture more idyllic surroundings than these: the area’s terraced countryside boasts olive, almond, fig and pear trees in abundance (and you can pick and eat from many yourself). Trulli, it’s the stuff of surprisingly, actually attainable dreams.
