Gelso Bianco is a fully restored traditional Pugliese farmhouse, or masseria, with a pool set in the magnificent countryside close to the Unesco town of Alberobello. The farmhouse features iconic elements of local architecture, including 11 trulli cones and an old stable, which is now a state of the art kitchen. Throughout the restoration process, every detail has been given careful attention creating an atmosphere that is reflective of the region and refined in its design. Our professional kitchen is outfitted with modern amenities and just the right amount of rustic charm.
Gelso Bianco is a country home that blends both rustic and contemporary style and offers the unique experience of living in a trullo, found only in the area of Puglia. There are four double bedrooms with private bathrooms, each named after vegetation found in the Pugliese landscape: agave, artichoke (carciofo), fig (fico), pomegranate (melograno). The prickly pear (fico di india) is a smaller room on the top deck of the masseria. Each double room fits a matrimonial bed and is slightly different with its own sense of design, layout and personal touches.
L'Agave is our master suite set in the center of the property with its own large trulli cones. With several stunning arches the room is spacious and the bathroom includes double sinks and a full bathtub.
Il Carciofo is a comfortable junior suite set next to the main kitchen with richly colored bathroom with a large shower.
Il Fico is set adjacent to the communal living room and has the largest bathroom on the property.
Il Melograno is a loft space also attached to the main living room. The bed sits in the loft in a trullo while an easy set of stairs lead to the bathroom and foyer below.
Il Fico d'India is a smaller room on the top deck of the masseria with spectacular views over the entire property and the town of Alberobello. Perfect for sunsets.
In addition to the pool the surrounding property includes a vegetable garden and several fruit and nut trees that are there for the picking and eating. Enjoy. Other amenities include: free WiFi access in every room, air conditioning and dehumidifier in every room, parking, washing machine, ipod dock.
