Having sold our apartment in Le Marche we were looking for something new in the south of Italy and were recommended to look in Puglia.
We discovered the trulli’s when we visited the Alberobello, area falling in love with them and decided that was what we wanted!
Local research uncovered Agenzia Dei Trulli who came highly recommended and we soon discovered why when we meet Gabry as nothing seemed too much trouble for her. Having listened to our thoughts and requirements she spent three days with us visiting restored and un restored trulli around the area until we saw a “project” that we fell in love with instantly.
It was then the hard work began and again we could not have done it without the considerable help of Gabry. From going through the initial purchase and then organising our architect and a team of craftsmen builders, she was there every step of the way. It was certainly not a case of you’ve bought it and your on your own now!
With a clear restoration plan and budgets in place, all work progress was reported back to us by Gabry when we were not present ourselves and all utilities and services required for our new venture were looked we have mein by her. The same dedication to help followed when we decided to put in the pool and all the other bits we added to the project.
Since finishing the trullo we have met other people who have renovated property in the area and hear horror stories about their experiences with other agencies. We cannot recommend Agenzia Dei Trulli enough for 5 years later on Gabry has become a friend who still helps with local problems or bureaucracy when required. Her service ethics are superb and we could not have completed out Italian dream home without her considerable assistance throughout.

I first visited Puglia in 2005 and fell in love with the area, particularly Alberobello, almost immediately.
After a disappointing but brief time with another agency I happened upon Agenzia dei Trulli. Gabry seemed to understand instantly what I was looking for and the beginning of a wonderful journey began!
I viewed 3 Trulli, each one a possibility but when I saw the 4th I knew it was 'the one'. Buying this trullo would have not been possible without Gabry, she guided me every step of the way, beginning with the legal requirements and regulations, arranging the necessary meetings and providing an architect, finding builders, plumbers, electricians etc. - the list is endless.
One often hears horror stories with regard to buying properties abroad but I can honestly say I experienced none of this and it is all down to Gabry's knowledge of the Italian system, dedication to her clients and incredible hard work.
I recommend anyone wishing to purchase a trullo to contact Gabry at Agenzie dei Trulli you will be in very safe hands.

My wife and I came to Alberobello on holiday in 2004. Whilst not actively searching for property we always kept half an eye on local housing markets. We were attracted by some property photos on display at the Agenzia dei Trulli. Having expressed an interest to Gabriella she was happy to show us around a number of properties. We had told her that we did not want the concern of rebuilding houses; Gabriella obviously listened to our ideas since she didn’t waste either her time or ours in trying to flog us a pile of stones or anything else that would not interest us. Needless to say we bought a villa in the locality and are now living happily in Italy.
There is always the spectre of bureaucracy in Italy and it still pops up from time to time. Even for Italians this can prove to be a headache but Gabriella has helped us on many occasions with the problems that can arise. Her “after sales service” is superb.
From the word go we’ve been very comfortable in dealing through Gabriella’s agency and have no problem whatsoever in recommending Agenzia Dei Trulli.

" We are delighted with the return on our investment in a Trullo from Agenzia dei trulli, and have seen its value double since we started the project. Restoring homes in Italy can be a slow process, and difficult to manage from England. Gabriella and the agency did not just sell us the property, but have helped us at each stage liaising with the Geometra, builders and utilities on our behalf. This overall service is not the norm in Puglia, and we would not have our superb Italian home without her help and support every step of the way "

J’ai acheté un trullo en campagne non loin de Martina Franca par l’intermédiaire de l’Agenzia dei trulli de Gabrielle. Gabrielle, très professionnelle dans son domaine, est très attentive ai besoin du client. Elle m’a dédié beaucoup de temps dans les visites de trullo à travers la campagne. Elle a une très grande connaissance di territoire ce qui lui a permis de cerner immédiatement ce que je cherchais. Une fois l’offre faite, elle m’a également assisté dans les démarches successives afin de formaliser l’achat. L’agenzia dei Trulli est une agence à dimension humaine qui offre au client un service sur mesure aussi bien dans la phase d’achat que dans les phases successives.

Agenzia dei Trulli, especially Gabriella makes the experience of buying in Puglia worth while and painless. Gabry is very welcoming, her ability to speak several languages and local experience is essential from the first time you set foot inside her office to actually staying in your trullo when completed.She helps at every step from finding your ideal property, opening bank accounts, getting tax registered, arranging a mortgage, signing contracts, completing the sale at the Notaio, organizing renovation work with reliable builders which is completed on time and on budget. She will also help with the set up of gas electricity and supply of water to your trullo and arrange for all bills addressed to home in England. Thanks to Gabry we have two beautiful trulli with a pool set in the countryside fully renovated with all services which we use for our own personal use and rent for holidays. It has been hard work but would not have been possible without Agenzia Dei Trulli.Even now after 3 years she is still helping us, she is much more than an estate agent and does much more than an estate agent. You won’t go wrong using Gabry to help you find your dream in Puglia.

In my opinion Agenzia Dei Trulli is undoubtedly the best agency within the Puglia are. I have had a trullo here in Martina Franca, Puglia for 5 years now. My first trullo was purchased from another agency and I bought my second house from Gabriella. The difference was incredible. Gabriella quickly found me exactly what I was looking for. House hunting with Gabriella was a very enjoyable experience. It is obvious her years of experience and her professional manner has gained her credibility in this area. Once we had found the trullo she helped me set up a mortgage here in Italy, dealt with all the legalities and ensured everything ran smoothly. As Gabriella speaks many languages at all times she keeps you involved and ensures you understand what is happening. After I purchased the house Gabriella was amazing.
She checked everything has been changed into my name ie: gas, electricity, water etc and was willing to help me with anything I need for the house. However after I returned to Scotland, Gabriella continue to ensure everything I had requested was completed. She organised and oversaw the installation of a lovely pool, organised a pizza oven to be built and completed renovation work on the trullo. I could continue working in Scotland with no worries as I knew Gabriella would ensure everything was done to the best standard. What a lovely surprise when I arrived back 4 months later to find my perfect trullo now with a pool. I am willing to independently answer any questions you may have about purchasing a property from Agenzia Dei Trulli so please feel free to email me.
