A Place To Call Home
A lovingly and imaginatively refurbished group of trulli between the Adriatic coast and Alberobello, Dimora dei Gelsi offers flexible living and glorious al fresco spaces in which to unwind to the gentle rhythms of the Puglian countryside.
Accommodation at Dimora dei Gelsi is spread over 11 trulli and a lamia (another architectural speciality of Puglia), all of which are close to the pool area. Most of the accommodation is situated in what might be termed the "main house". Here one enters a cosy living area with small dining table. To the left a small utility kitchen leads into the large master suite, which spreads across four of the trulli cones, each of which is linked by an arch. There is a double/twin sleeping area and a large en-suite bathroom with double sinks and tub. The white-washed walls and creamy stone-flagged floors make for a light and airy ambience that continues throughout the property. The master suite has its own external access to the large terrace next to the pool area. Heading back through the small kitchen, the living area provides access to two more bedrooms: a double, whose en-suite bathroom features a large, glazed, walk-in shower, and a double bedroom whose bed is on a small mezzanine above an en-suite shower room. Heading back outside and along the terrace a little, one comes to the fourth bedroom, a double/twin with en-suite shower room accessed only from the outside. Next to this, also accessed only from the outside, is the well-equipped kitchen-diner, which like most of the accommodation has easy access to the outside areas.
Life at Dimora dei Gelsi is all about outdoor living and dining on the large stone-paved terrace, which offers a good variety of places for sitting and dining with views over the pool and the surrounding countryside. The lovely pool is just a few steps away and is surrounded by ample space for catching the sun or reclining in the shade of a pergola. Where the stone-flagged terraces end, the warm, scented earth of Puglia's whispering olive groves begins. To get the best view of all this, and even Alberobello in the distance, head up the external steps to the panoramic roof terrace, the perfect spot to sip a glass of wine as the sun begins to set.
