A trullo is an ancient, round house with a conical roof primarily located in the Itria Valley in Italy’s Apulia region.

Trullo’s were originally constructed as temporary field shelters and storehouses by the region’s farmers.

Some were used as permanent housing and now some, like this beautiful example, have been turned into stylish Italian holiday homes. And you can rent it!
