Imagine, just for a moment, being here right now – lying back on a sunbed, say, after a long dip in the pool, the heat off. This is the Relais Villa Aieni in Puglia, right down in the heel of Italy. It’s made up of a collection of trulli, the region’s iconic cylindrical houses, with their instantly recognisable conical roofs. These ones, refurbished and modernised, are yours to rent. Happy holidays. Nardi
