Description
The Riposo del Vento B&B lays in the heart of Valle d’Itria, in the countryside of Casalini, hamlet of Cisternino: only a few kilometres from the sea and in a central position from the historical small towns of Ostuni, the ‘white town’, MartinaFranca, the ‘lady’, Alberobello, city of the trulli, declared world heritage by UNESCO, Locorotondo e Ceglie Messapica. Cities like Lecce, Bari, Brindisi and Taranto, are around an hour by car away.

The complex dates back to the 19th century, and is constituted by a mix of trulli and lamie, built in local stone. The Riposo del Vento B&B is placed in a big garden with ancient olive trees, pool and children's play, completely at the guests’ disposal. Here you’ll be able to work on your tan or take shelter in the shadow of the trees, reading a book, or idly swing in a hammock, immersed in the unique sounds of nature.

The trullo It’s a two bedrooms apartment, kitchen and a lounge loft with a sofa bed for 2 childrens. The bedrooms have all bathroom and independent entrance. It is for 4 adults or for 4 adults with 2 childrens. It has washing machine, equipped kitchen, air-conditioning, heating, tv LCD.

The lamia It’s a one-roomed flat for two, with private bathroom and kitchenette. It has equipped kitchenette, air-conditioning, heating, tv LCD. There are 6 lamia like that.

The Riposo del Vento B&B has mountain bikes at the guests’ disposal, to travel around the countryside or the coast. They can be rented by the day or the week.

At the Riposo del Vento, we aren’t offering just a place to sleep, but also a fill of emotions..

You won’t just sleep in rooms furnished with natural materials, as wood, stone and linen, but you’ll also be able to enjoy the quiet of the garden, start the day with a genuine breakfast, do a cycle ride along the country roads, among olive groves, vineyards and stretches of little red tomatoes, sample a varied aperitif of local products while watching the sunset, when the light breeze recalls that even the wind decided to stop here…

Hey from Francesca

Member since December 2006 | 111,904 hits
My name is Francesca and I am originally from Florence. After traveling the world for long periods, I arrived in the Itria Valley with my Argentinian partner Juan.

We fell in love with these places and their typicality and we decided to stop here in search of peace and quiet.

A simple life, but surrounded by nature and in the company of our many children (all 4 born here) and the animals (dogs, cats, horses, sheep, chickens..) that accompany us and animate our lives.

We have always traveled, we know how important it is for a tourist to be guided and accompanied to discover the beauty and gastronomy typical of the surrounding places.

Therefore we help our customers to make itineraries and choose the most typical (and less touristy!) Restaurants and we are always ready to help for any problem; however, our presence is very discreet and every guest here feels at home!

I speak English, French, Spanish and Portuguese very well..as well as Italian: -).

Wonderful complex of trulli and lamie in a marvelous garden a short distance from the beautiful villages of Cisternino, Locorotondo, Alberobello, and Martina Franca. Abundant and genuine breakfast to be enjoyed in the garden. Stay in a lamia for 2 people, tastefully furnished. The shower, however, is very small with a curtain. Excellent recommendations for local restaurants from the owner.

We fell in love looking at the photos and reviews. Upon arrival, a slight disappointment. The accommodation was nice, but some architectural solutions had some flaws. For example, I remember well the stone lamp holder in the "corridor" between the wall and the bed at chin level. Another disappointment was the breakfast: despite reading all the positive reviews, we realized it was not served. The owner tried to make up for it by offering us some sweets, but could have organized a small breakfast anyway. After these downsides, though, there was a nice surprise: the pool, always welcome after covering many kilometers in the heat.

We stayed at this property for the bbday and we were really happy to have found everything that the reviews reported... and even more. The place is truly magnificent, with its trulli immersed in the countryside, in a strategic position to visit the many beauties of the surroundings, both sea and more. Peace and tranquility reign supreme but the welcome of Francesca and Juan is the added value. Thank you for giving us this beautiful stop on our journey to discover the splendid Puglia. Thanks again and good life.

Casalini was a fantastic village in Puglia. The easy walk from here and the amazing friendliness of the people in this area was very much appreciated. Our host Francesca was friendly and helpful at all times and the BNB was good although we found our room (a lammi not trulli) a bit small for 7 nights and required aircon consistently on as no flow through ventilation.

It is a beautiful structure immersed in the greenery of the Itria Valley. Stunning villages like Cisternino or enchanting cities like Ostuni can be reached in a few minutes. Francesca, who takes care of the guests, is attentive and friendly. Ideal for going with young children, there are many attentions dedicated to them. From the horses to the pool, nothing is missing.

We were three couples and had a great time. A truly unique experience. The location of the trulli was particularly attractive from every point of view. We breathed a rural atmosphere but at the same time every comfort was guaranteed. The whinnying of the horses and the barking of the dogs accompanied us in the morning at breakfast. Breakfast was the classic cherry on top: Mrs. Bea's pastry every morning made us find freshly baked cakes, biscuits, and taralli, and their scent reached the trulli directly. Personally, I set aside the savory to focus exclusively on tasting the sweets. I highly recommend the cake with ricotta and jam: Fantastic. The owners were splendid, full of information and at the same time attentive to our requests. Really congratulations. Absolutely recommendable.

I stayed with my family, there were 3 of us, on the first weekend of July. We had a great time at Riposo del vento Trulli e B&B, a place away from the chaos but close to the sea, villages to visit, and dining centers. The highlight was the pool, because after a day out it's nice to just relax by the poolside. The lamia was clean and perfect for three. Thanks to Francesca and the family, I hope to come back soon.

For breakfast, if there was a possibility to give 100, I would have selected it. Only genuine homemade food, excellent and tasty. I recommend trying the rustic filling, but you have to wake up early, otherwise you will only find the dish (thanks Bea). The place is described by the name. If you need a relaxing and regenerating period, I highly recommend this B&B. The location is great for those who love the countryside and nature, a bit inconvenient when going down to the sea, but considering the area, it is impossible to find facilities that do not have this inconvenience. I was a guest in a Lamia, clean, fresh and very nice, where every space is used to the fullest. It is not very big, but for two people it is very comfortable and nothing is missing. The exteriors are very well-kept, immersed in greenery and very spacious, allowing you to disconnect from the chaos of the cities. The kindness of the owners, I take this opportunity to thank Francesca and her partner, whose name I do not remember, close the circle of a beautiful and pleasant period spent in their facility.

Always something new, all freshly baked and fresh from the garden. Can only recommend, we will gladly come back. Best regards Katrin and Jens and Henni.

Perfect and charming place to discover the area. Typical trulli, Francesca the owner is just very nice. Beata who works there is very helpful. We had a great time and would advise you to go there to stroll around and then have a nice swim in the close swimming pool after a nice day discovering villages. We had a grea time there. don't hesitate. We loved it.

La cordialità che abbiamo trovato è una cosa che mi resterà nel cuore, i proprietari sono gentilissimi, sempre disponibili e con il sorriso, il posto è molto curato anche nei dettagli, inoltre la struttura si trova in campagna, ma vicinissimo al paese, dove si può andare anche a piedi in 5 minuti, lo consiglio!
