Suddenly, in the Itria Valley, fairy-tale houses appear … stone shelters in the rolling land, … countless grey cones marked with the Phoenician emblem … I would like to lie on the ground in a golden-vaulted “tullo” and dream…

-Gabriele d’Annunzio

50 years of love

OUR STORY

It all began in 1970 when grandfather Tonino and grandmother Lina, originally from the town of Brindisi, went exploring the hills of the Itria Valley, in search of peace, nature and “good air” for their three children. Enchanted by the unspoilt, wild landscape of the area and the kindness of the local people, they knew that from then on they would spend all their summers there. They began by buying a few small trulli and a piece of land, on which grandfather Tonino built the summer house. And while he laid the bricks for the house, Grandma Lina watched the flowers grow in her precious garden, which she loved so much. Years later, the passion for this place was passed on to their three granddaughters, who were lucky enough to spend unforgettable summers between the sea and the olive trees. Today Casalina, thanks to a renovation, shines again as it did then, offering its guests the opportunity to experience a special stay.

The villa

Casalina, a completely renovated and furnished Apulian mansion, which nevertheless retains the charm and elements of local history. There are several flats inside historic trulli, an ancient stone structure and a modern area. The house is located in the hamlet of “Casalini” in Cisternino, one of the “Borghi più belli D’Italia” (Italy’s most beautiful villages), surrounded by nature dotted here and there by white and grey cones, the famous trulli, which are part of the Unesco heritage. More precisely, it is located 4 km from Cisternino and 9 km from Ostuni, in a district called “Tesoro” on the road between these two towns.
