TrulliPesto is like Italy’s finest pestos: fresh, made with perfectly blended ingredients, seasoned, and is quintessentially Italian. And like a great pesto dish, your stay at TrulliPesto will linger on the palate of your holiday memories for many years to come.

Freshly restored (completed June 2014), TrulliPesto is a five-coned 2 bedroom / 2 bathroom trulli with private pool and poolside pergola, set-back in the countryside and nestled within an olive grove for much sought after privacy, rest and relaxation.

Our trulli has two (2) generously-sized bedrooms (each under its own large trulli cone/vaulted ceiling) which can be configured as two doubles or one double / two singles.

It also has two (2) bathrooms, one of which is ensuite . . . each beneath the charm of it's own large trulli cone (vaulted ceiling).

So TrulliPesto is ideal for couple(s) and/or families or friends.

In addition, TrulliPesto boasts separate dining, kitchenette and lounge areas. . . each also beneath its own trulli cone.

All rooms have been simply but stylishly decorated to complement, not overpower, the architectural heritage and simplicity of the trulli architecture itself. . . exactly as truly great pesto’s complement fine homemade pasta dishes.

TrulliPesto’s private pool measures 8m X 4m. Sun loungers, shaded poolside pergola, outdoor seating (and umbrella) and pool towels are provided.

For early Spring (wild flowers) and late Autumn (olive harvest), TrulliPesto is centrally heated (inclusive or rates quoted) for maximum comfort should the night turn chilly.

All windows are fitted with screens.

Recent guest Michelle writes in her review:

"We have just come back from a wonderfully relaxing, tranquil and luxurious week away in this trulli. The weather was glorious yet the trulli was incredibly cool and comfortable, with possible one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in. Great customer service, beautifully maintained property and grounds."

We encourage you to please read through our guest reviews for more information. Thank you.


If your dates are unavailable, you may want to view our two other properties: TrulliPecorino (1649559) or TrulliPesca (6745686) which are also 2BR/2BA trulli w/private pools.


Our trulli is located in the beautiful countryside outside of Ostuni . . . with several local Masseria offering freshly grown/organic produce, farm goods and in some cases, restaurants . . . yet, 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)

Whether your holiday plans include simply total rest and relaxation or, rather packing in as much sightseeing as possible, TrulliPesto will flavour and complement your holiday, and provide just the right combinatio of ingredients for the perfect accompaniment for your visit to Puglia.

Kitchen has all modern amenities, including dishwasher.

The World UNESCO site of Alberobello is only a 35 km drive through the rolling countryside of the Apulian hills.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We've stayed at the Trulli Pesto beginning of May 2018 with a group of 4. We've had a marvellous time! The Trulli has a central location which makes it convenient to go on tour to the whole Puglia area. Also if you want to visit wineries or olive oil farms...this is the place. But you don't have to go of course: we also had a few days to relax and enjoy the pool, read a book under the gazebo or wander around the beautiful garden or the country side (full with olives, cactuses, aloe veras and fig trees!!!).

The trulli is fully equiped: washing machine, oven, microwave, seasoning, oil and even and iron, ow and a BBQ :)..everything was there!

And if you needed anything...Hayley was just a what'sapp/phone call away. Such a nice lady!

So thank you for making our holiday one of a kind! x

Endroit plein de charme au calme

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons adoré notre séjour à TrulliPesto ! Le calme absolu des champs d’oliviers tout autour et la piscine merveilleuse. L’endroit est parfait pour sillonner dans la région et découvrir les pouilles (voiture obligatoire) et le soir au retour de là plage : bain dans la piscine puis barbecue ! Des vacances très reposantes loin du bruit des grosses cités touristiques.

Owner's Response: Merci beaucoup Laetitia. TrulliPesto vous offre la détente, les installations et le cadre pour profiter de tout ce que les Pouilles et la région ont à offrir. Nous espérons que vous reviendrez bientôt un jour. GUEST REVIEW TRANSLATION We loved our stay at TrulliPesto! The absolute calm of the olive groves all around and the wonderful swimming pool. The place is perfect for cruising the area and discover the Puglia (car mandatory) and the evening back from there beach: bath in the pool and barbecue! A very relaxing holiday away from the noise of big tourist cities.

A lovely quiet, rural location

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in TrulliPesto. The Trulli itself is clean and spacious with a kitchen that has plenty of pots, pans, crockery etc. so you can cook decent meals. You will definitely need a car but there is lots to do and see in the area. We visited in late September and the temperature was not as warm as we were hoping for (around 22-23 C) which was pleasant, but just not lazing by the pool weather!

Amazing property with stunning grounds and pool.

  • 5 of 5

A party of four retired teachers we booked the property for our first visit to this area of Italy. We spent 10 nights here and moved on to Lecce for a further four nights.

The owners gave us great support via email. This included detailed directions to meet Hayley and Anthony who eventually drove ahead of us to the remote accommodation. We managed to get lost and only met our guides at about 11pm. They were delightful, nothing was too much trouble for them. We even asked for a mirror for one bedroom only for Hayley to deliver her personal mirror the following afternoon.

The Trulli is beautiful and met all of our needs - two lovely bedrooms and two spacious bathrooms, one ensuite. The outdoor space deserves praise, we had no idea what "two acres" looks and feels like! The grounds were huge with a large swimming pool to entice you, we had many pre-breakfast dips, what a way to start your day? We also used the bbq and ate outside regularly mostly for breakfast.

The location is very rural you MUST have a car but within minutes you can visit amazing towns with beautiful architecture and fantastic restaurants. We always do our research before any holiday but Hayley and Anthony gave us great advice on places to visit and eat including the local farm with its onsite butchers that barbecued your meat in the evening! The nearby rural restaurant Antimo that you could not afford to visit if it was in England but was great value. The local village Ceglie that is an absolute gem but not found in travel books of the region.

We had a marvellous time in this charming property and will definitely return.

Great pool!

  • 4 of 5

There are three separate Trulli in the residence ; they are sufficiently remote and you are not disturbed by your neighbours.

The swimmingpool is great and children were found of it, and we too as Puglia may be very hot in summer (one regret : the trulli do not have air-condition ).

Some mosquitos on sunset but they were not to aggressive. Another anoying thing in Puglia : thieves (one of our neighbour had his rent car stolen during the night...).

Trullipesto is very well located, between Ostuni and Ceglie Messapica and it is a great starting point to visit the country.

We had a pleasant holiday and enjoyed Trullipesto.

A beautiful and peaceful retreat in Puglia

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Trulli Pesto. The trulli, pool and surroundings were as described by the owner. The property is located off the beaten track in amongst Olive and Almond trees. The pool is a great size perfect for 2 adults and 2 kids. The pergola by the pool was brilliant to hide from the hot sun when needed. There are a table and chairs by the trulli with a large parasol for outdoor eating.

The property is very well placed for exploring Puglia. The towns of Ostuni and Cieglie are very close by and beautiful. We also visited the trulli town of Alberobello, as well as Martina Franca.

There is lots more to see and explore and I am sure we will be back at some point. Thank you Glenn for our perfect holiday.

Truly Terrific Trulli.

  • 5 of 5

For a fantastic vacation and a part of Italy you have probably never seen in a unique secluded environment, this trulli fills the bill. You step back in time to an unusual construction but totally modern in all the amenities you want.

Two spacious bedrooms separated by one of the large bathrooms. The master has an oversized double bed and a private full bath.... The two twin bedroom has the second full bath right outside the door. That bath is accessable from the small central hall. Perfect for a family or friend couples.

Kitchen and grounds were impeccably clean, modern and quiet. You can see two other trulli along the 1/4 mile driveway in but you are very private.

Things work too! Hot water for both showers at the same time is no problem, washing machine is brand new, pool is crystal clear and was fine for me to jump in every day. In June it was a bit chilly for some of our more delicate family members...fine for me!

Electricity, security system, internet, the clothes drying rack outside, the crank-up outdoor table umbrella over the small table and chairs for morning coffee, all were perfect. Lot,'s of pride of ownership in this owner.

A littlr hard to find, but the owners give you a phone number of a very nice woman who meets you on the main road and leads you in the last 3 miles (6km). They thought of everything.

Definitely need a car if you leave to sightsee. And in that area of Italy there are different and magnificant sights to see. Towns within an hour drive are on the Unisco World Landmarks list and are worth the drive.... Or just stay in the trulli for a week or two and listen to the olives grow.

Almost forgot, the pool cabana is shaded and has cushions for an afternoon nap and has lights and electricity outlets for music in the evening.

Would recommend this to our traveling children and grandchildren.

OSTUNI BEACHES: 20 MIN by CAR. ZooSafari amusement park for children nearby. Gorgeous beaches. Lecce, Gallipoli, Otranto, Santa Maria de Leuca make for excellent 1/2 or full day excursions.
