Discovering Puglia: A Trulli Experience with Hermione Homes

If you’re planning a holiday trip to Italy, make sure to include the southern region of Puglia in your itinerary. Puglia offers a unique blend of rich history, vibrant culture, and stunning landscapes. Among the many gems in this region, there are a few towns that stand out: Martina Franca, Cisternino, Locorotondo and Monopoli. Hermione Homes manages properties in or close to these towns. 

‘Villa San Domenico’

Hermione Homes manages this wonderful Trulli named ‘Villa San Domenico’. It is a gorgeous Holiday Home combining modernity and tradition with its three trulli surrounded by a one-hectare garden in the heart of the Itria Valley.

This Villa has a large pool, a superb terrace and patios, including a garden full of character with its vineyards, olive and fruit trees.

Villa San Domenico is in Martina Franca less than half an hour drive to Monopoli where Hermione Homes is working as an intermediary adviser for a landlord and assisting in the process of redeveloping a wonderful historical town flat.


Given the short distance, while enjoying your holiday at Villa San Domenico you can visit the lovely town of Monopoli.

The Town of Monopoli is a sun-kissed, historic town along Italy’s southern Adriatic coast. If you’re planning a trip to Italy and want to discover a little-known gem with authentic Italian charm, look no further than Monopoli. Monopoli is a port city that dates back to the Greeks and thus its name meaning “only city.”

The town is less touristy than nearby Polignano or Alberobello. Because of this, its slow, more peaceful vibe reveals a genuine look at daily life along Italy’s Adriatic.

Days are best spent casually walking along the lungomare, taking some sun on the small strip of sandy beach or along the rocky coastline, savouring a classic Pugliese dish of orecchiette, and leaning into the Italian art of simply enjoying the moment.

Along the way, take time to ramble along the sea and past the white-washed buildings that line the narrow streets of the old town. Much of Monopoli’s charm comes from stumbling upon a piazza or watching the fishermen work at the port, but there are a few things you’ll want to see on your day in Monopoli. Among these: the Basilica of the Madonna della Madia, the Castello di Carlo V and many other fantastic places.

No visit to Monopoli would be complete without indulging in the local cuisine. Puglia is renowned for its culinary delights, and Monopoli is no exception. The town offers a range of gastronomic experiences, from family-run trattorias serving traditional recipes to more contemporary eateries.

Hermione Homes is currently assisting a landlord in completing the development of a two-beds flat in Monopoli. As you can see on the pictures, the choice of the local sourced materials, the attention to details and the skilfulness of the local craftsmen is astonishing. The flooring is made of “cementine” in grès porcelain, putting together tradition with comfort. The colours of this pattern are cobalt blue, white and a tiny yellow, which will give an original design to this two-bedroom flat in the historic centre of Monopoli.
