A fairytale five-star stay at a historic trulli-turned-suite at the heart of breathtaking Puglia - including breakfast, suite options, a dining discount, spa extras and more

Pull up at this historic Apulian inn and you'll be in for a pleasant surprise: made up of a collection of conical trullos (think traditional dry stone huts), and surrounded by idyllic olive groves and vineyards, it very nearly pops right out of a fairytale. Dating back to between 1780 and 1820, each hut has been beautifully transformed into a luxurious, five-star suite and named after a different grape variety, for a stay that's as authentic and locally inspired as it is historical.

Tuck into fine Apulian cuisine in the restaurant, with high standards of service upheld throughout your stay. Your annual dose of Vitamin D can be taken by the side of the contemporary pool or on a lounger on the sandy beach. And if bubbling away in the Jacuzzi or relaxing in the Turkish bath sound too low key, there’s little chance of finding yourself at a loose end around here - choose from activities such as cooking classes, painting, yoga or mountain biking, or spoil yourself with a tour of the region, to taste olive oil that's good enough to drink and wines held in high regard by the country’s top vintners.
