We are staying at La Trullesa and it is a lovely place to stay. Although compact we do have an outside eating area and kitchen which is very much appreciated. As part of this B&B they do have a shop and so breakfast included Italian coffee (yeh), juice and nice pastries – better than we usually get. We set out into Alberobello and it is a very pretty city.
