If there is a part of Italy that has managed to keep a keen sense of tradition alive, it is the Itria Valley, the heart of Puglia. Here, ties to the earth and its origins, the strength of local materials and the originality of artisanal workmanship guide the restoration of the trulli, simultaneously demonstrating an uncanny ability to reinvigorate the objects and atmosphere of an antique culture with a creative vibe. Welcome to Trulli Matale, where local tradition, modern spirit and the sense of hospitality meet under the sign of Puglia Power.
Tradition is stylish at Trulli Matale. Sabrina and Gianpaolo, the owners, are born and bred Apulians who have restored this group of trulli with an iconoclastic spirit that showcases their effusive personalities, their rock ‘n roll energy, their passion for memorabilia from distant places they have visited and for vintage details, their love of glam touches and their desire to make it all welcoming for the friends they love to entertain here.
All of this results in a radiant vacation, a radiance that recalls Apulia’s grand rural tradition coupled with a playful mix and match of farm artifacts along with design elements from the 1950s. At Trulli Matale, you will find antique African masks and furniture foraged in French antique markets alongside 17th century Neapolitan ceramics and anthropomorphic vases from Sicily’s Caltagirone. Trulli Matale is a unique amalgamation of history and culture touched with whimsy.
The bedrooms are richly magnetic, where pure white linens highlight antique light fixtures. But these fixtures aren’t the ordinary ones you find everywhere else. They are the lights typical of Apulian religious processions, reflecting the most authentic elements of Apulian culture. A flower, a star, the figure of Santa Lucia… festival lights adorn this home enlivened by the Itria Valley sun. Relish it all in the shady patio rimmed with fragrant wisteria or by the pool that reflects the pure Mediterranean blue of the sky.
