About Anna Maggio
I was born in Puglia and live in London. I was inspired to go back to my roots and create my 'haven of peace' away from the strains and stresses of city life. My love of Pugliese food led me to run cookery courses in Italy and to work in TV with chefs such as the late Keith Floyd and Rick Stein helping them to discover the truly traditional foods of this unique part of Italy for their respective BBC series. In Puglia I can delight in all the things that are important to me: beautiful tranquil nature, clear blue sea, great food and stunning towns. Rick Stein came to my trullo in Pascarosa and here is his comment: 'my friend Anna Maggio has bought a trullo just outside Ostuni and renovated it into an amazingly atmospheric house set in an olive grove' (Rick Stein's Mediterranean Escapes).
Anna Maggio purchased this chateau / country house in 2004
Why Anna Maggio chose Ostuni
Although I have lived in London for 40 years, I feel Puglia is still my spiritual 'home'. Here I can breath the scents of the seasons and taste the wonderful fruit and vegetables which grow in profusion throughout the year. The glorious olive oil which my 150 ancient olive trees give each year is a source of constant joy. Picking fresh figs and ripe cherries for breakfast is pure bliss. This is why owning a piece of this land give me such an amazing pleasure.
What makes this chateau / country house unique
Away from it all. Unspoilt. In touch with the sounds and scents of nature. Experience living in these unique ancient buildings. Comfortable. Cool in the hot summer and warm in winter. Clear skies and starry nights.
Lovely views of distant villages.
Hot and cold 'under the olive tree' outdoor shower.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We've had a really different experience of Italy this time! We love the trullo, so quiet and surrounded by nature - lizards everywhere, a hoopoe that landed on the roof and did his distinctive call.
We will miss waking up in this lovely home!
