This B&B is a hidden little gem. Access is via a dirt track. Leave nice car at home, we scratched both sides of our car on the bushes. Very pretty Trullo set in the grounds of an orchard. Inside it is surprisingly spacious. Fairly clean, quite a bit of dust on top of fridge and back of headboard on double...

Access is through 200 meters of a dirt and bumpy road. Apart from that, everything is just perfect. Breakfast is otherwordly. Pool (a rarity for such a small structure) is a marvel, rooms nice and tidy. Owners are so nice and attentive. You are in the middle of nowhere but you feel at home and do not want to leave....

Nice family run B&B just outside of town. Quiet location in an olive grove and a lovely pool on the grounds. Breakfast was homemade items served by the couple. Be careful when selecting your room. If you want to stay in an actual trulli room, be aware that there are other rooms besides actual trulli accommodations.

Fontana Vecchia is a lovely place to stay in the Puglian countryside. We stayed in one of the Trulli houses which was comfortable and well equipped. The hosts are very friendly and helpful and as for the breakfasts- I have never experienced one like it. As well as local cheeses and hams there was frittata and home made cakes all...

Fontana Vecchia is a lovely family run B&B. We stayed in a typical Trulli house. The house was nicely furnished with a kitchen and it's own back yard to sit outside.

We really enjoyed our stay in Fontana Vecchia. The trulli are set in a beautiful orchard where the the owners grow cherries, figs, vegetables and plenty of other goodies.
