TrulliRoccia is a rare, romantic and recently restored (completed April 2014) trulli that has the ‘Soul of Puglia’ running throughout every cone and rock of its ancient construction. It will embrace you and captivate your heart from the moment you make your final approach to the property and step through the door.
Rare, because this well-appointed trulli has been sensitively restored to include three (3) ensuite bathrooms for each of the three (3) generously sized bedrooms, along with two sitting rooms/lounges, dining room and kitchen, should you choose to dine in. Total interior is 115 square meters / 1000 square feet. A plethora of original features – such as numerous 'niche', stone arches, working fireplace. alcoves and a wood-burning pizza oven, etc – will unfold as you settle in to a very special stay at TrulliRoccia.
As the Puglian lifestyle is centred around ‘outdoor living’, the property has a walled and outside shaded dining area (in addition to inside dining for six). And plenty of additional stone terracing for basking in the sun. There is a poolside shaded pergola and yet another poolside dining area, also for six (6)
Set in nearly one hectare (2 acres) on a hilltop with stunning vistas, TrulliRoccia will wrap you up in the ‘Soul of Puglia’ and envelope your mood. Its idyllic setting will challenge your senses -- vistas, birdsong, olive and fruit trees. You will be surrounded by countryside and magnificent views pocked by distant trulli cones poking through the olive groves and majestic hilltop masseria – providing maximum tranquility, serenity and relaxation for you and your family or travel companions. . ., making it oh so easy to leave the world behind.
Still, you will be ideally located for convenient access (10-15 min by car) to the beautiful Puglian hilltop towns of Ostuni, Cisternino, Martina Franca and Ceglie Messapica . . . each with its own unique character – and type of mozzarella! Ostuni's beaches are only minutes drive away.
Further afield, excursions to UNESCO World Heritage sites such as Alberobello (35 min) and Matera – a ‘must’ in our opinion – (1 hr 45 min), as well as the beautiful baroque city of Lecce (1hr 20 min) or Otranto (1 hour 45min) or Gallipoli (1 hour 30 min)

Separate dining room with seating for six (6)

Recent guest Angela, from the USA, writes in her review:
"Would you like to try something so incredibly different while visiting the Puglia region of Italy? Then TrulliRoccia is the place to stay. Location was perfect to take daily trips to surrounding towns. We really had no idea what to expect. After looking at the photos, we knew it would be beautiful and unique. But once you step through the front door, it brought everything to life. TrulliRoccia was spotless and as well appointed as a home can be."
We encourage you to please read through our guest reviews for more information. Thank you.
