A Uniquely Italian Vacation House

I have a real love of historical dwellings and I think the native architecture of the Puglia region of Italy known as trulli is one of the most charming in the world. Dating back 200 to 300 years, they were originally used by farmers but in more recent years, they have become popular as vacation homes.

Here is one example of a great trullo conversion.

And the decor is just spot on. Antique pieces juxtaposed against pops of modern always works for me.

The decking around the pool is very cool too.

I just love seeing historical homes given new life especially when it’s done this well.
