Visitors to Cisternino and the Valle d'Itria will be familiar withTrulli the trulli that are scattered throughout the area, some looking resplendent having been completely restored but others nothing more than a ruin.
The renovated trullo, whether they are now, hotels, residences, guest houses or holiday homes have been rebuilt to a standard their original owners could barely have dreamed of with new kitchens, bedrooms, heating, lighting etc all of which were missing from what was once a peasants home lacking in everything including a window!
There are plenty of trulli still on the market at sensible prices. Trullo mostly with a fair sized piece of land included which attract foreign buyers keen to purchase and convert to their very own place in the sun. With their mortar free construction and complete lack of mains services this should be undertaken only by the determined! Partially or fully restored trulli can be bought at higher prices depending on the extent of restoration, number of cones and size of plot.
