They really did look after us, from the very start of our visit and right up to the last day. They have thought of everything! The property is stunning - in a beautiful setting; just right for lazy days by the pool with so much on offer in the local village and surrounding areas. There is lots to do and see; the food and wine is gorgeous when you want to go further afield. However, there really is no need because the villa is the perfect retreat. It is tastefully furnished and has all you need to relax. I would certainly recommend Trullo Michelle and know that we will be back again!

We found ourselves using the external kitchen constantly and swimming in the pool every morning despite the mild weather. Located 5 minutes drive from Ceglie Messapica, don't be deceived by the modern, run-down outer of this foodie town. The historic centre up on the hill is stunning and the food is cheap and plentiful. Many other towns and attractions around the area in all directions. Only real downside was our stress driving on the opposite side of the road in an SUV, which probably enhanced our desire to laze around and do nothing by the pool for much of the week. Next time I'd hire a smaller car, though native right-side drivers likely wouldn't suffer from this stress. I'd also make use of the transport service the landlord lists (in the comprehensive guest info book) in order to head into Ceglie more often throughout the week for wining and dining. And I'd stay 10-14 days instead of 7, given there's so many day trips on offer!
