The dining table seats 6 people and the dresser nearby contains all the crockery and cutlery you will need.

The trullo cones in this lounge, kitchen and diner are huge which makes the area light and airy. The stone exposed walls and the wooden beams make it charming.

From the kitchen/dining area is the corridor to the night area:

An air-con unit is located in the night area hallway which serves the Master and Twin bedrooms when the doors are open.


The master bedroom has a large double bed, bedside tables with wall lamps and array of wardrobes with drawers and hanging space. There is a full length mirror and a TV mounted high up.

They are suitable for children or adults happy to use them. There is a large set of wardrobes, drawers and a small desk with seating on the opposite wall. The window looks out onto the rear of the trullo onto the lavender and rosemary bushes.


This room has 2 single beds with bedside table and lamp, nearby there is a chest of drawers and a shelving unit. The window looks out the lavender and rosemary bushes.

** It is also possible to put the 2 single beds together to make a double bed. It does make the room quite small

The trullo is surrounded by bushes and fencing making it very private.

AL FRESCO DINING area under the covered veranda

There is a table which seats 6 and is surrounded by plants. It is a great space to eat but also take some rest from the sun.

This quaint little room was used for storage and preparing food. Today you will find the table football, toys and games and the running machine. For those of you who might hire bikes, it is the perfect place to store them. It is here you also find:

Great value for money with a wonderful pool.

  • 4 of 5

This villa is set in a delightfully landscaped garden which is a little oasis in this rustic part of Puglia, and the combination of electric gating, and other security features made the property feel very safe to us as a family. The pool is simply excellent, as is the veranda, and many a relaxed hour was spent either in the water or under the veranda's welcome shade. The house is very comfortable with most mod-cons, and whilst not what would be termed luxurious, is really excellent value for money. Also the welcome pack of fresh local produce left by the owners was a very nice touch and much appreciated. The location is very convenient both for shorter trips to Martina Franca and local supermarkets, but also to either coast and the pleasant Adriatic beaches. We were very impressed with Jackie and her efficiency and attention to detail, and we were able to enjoy our holiday with the reassurance that if there were any issues Jackie would be on the case immediately.

Amazing Trullio, great location and perfect pool

  • 5 of 5

Traditional trullio just outside of Martina Franca. great location for visiting many villages and in-between both seas so you can try both set of beaches. All amenities you could need, even with small children to keep them entertained. peaceful and safe location and the the outdoor areas are pristine. We would definitely recommend and will be revisiting hopefully soon.

Great Villa, superb location and amazing pool

  • 5 of 5

This is an outstanding villa. Having travelled extensively in Europe we can honestly say this is the best place we have stayed in. The pool and outside area is beautiful and the hosts have thought of everything to make your stay enjoyable. Our five year old especially loved the pool, table football and basket ball hoop. Inside you have all the equipment you need and the dishwasher is a nice touch. The beds are comfy too. Jackie the manager went over and above what was required of her especially when we messed up our car hire and ended up 4 hours late, she offered and went to the supermarket for us and got dinner and wine as we would arrive too late to sort it out for ourselves. The surrounding area, town, scenery are amazing and the villa is in a good location to visit all the surrounding areas. I recommend this place highly.

A wonderfull holiday in a beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday in this really beautiful home near Martina Franca, Puglia. We had a very warm welcome with fresh fruits and vegetables. And the house has every thing you need on your stay.

We really enjoyed the beautiful places like, Locorotondo, Monopoli, Alberobello, Martina Franca and many more.

Paradise in Puglia? Most definitely!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to stay! Trullo Melograno has everything needed for a great holiday – ample space, great facilities, super pool, cool shady areas and excellent location.

Jackie, of Puglia Holiday Rentals, was exceptionally helpful, giving great advice and information about the property and surrounding area both before and during our holiday - nothing was too much trouble for her and we are very grateful to Jackie. Many thanks also to the lovely owners, Pino and Paola, for allowing us to stay in their home and for being so welcoming - the baskets of home grown produce and local products were fabulous!

The main reason for visiting this area was to attend the wedding of our niece - a truly amazing couple of days which will be remembered forever as our “Italian Wedding Experience.”

However, this area of Italy is beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed spending the rest of our time there meandering along the narrow alleyways of places such as Alberobello, Locorotondo, Ostuni, Lecce and Cisternino – many of which look stunning as you approach them from the road - especially Ostuni at night. There is a great ice cream place in a square in Cisternino – BARFOD 1951. Another memorable place is Sassi di Matera – amazing rock dwellings and steeped in history. Polignano a Mare is also worth a visit for beautiful cliff views and the old town, although maybe try to avoid a National Holiday!

Although this is an area we visited “by chance,” we would certainly recommend this part of Italy to others and for them to stay at Trullo Melograno.

On a final note, try out the pizza oven – fun for everyone to get involved even though we certainly needed a little more practice!

A lovey place to stay, perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

We would give Trullo Melograno 10 stars if we could.

We stayed for 14 nights in July and we really didn’t want to leave. The Trullo was spotlessly clean, very well appointed and had everything a family of five could need for a comfortable and really enjoyable holiday. I guess this comes from the owners living there for a number of years with their own family.

Everything about Trullo Melograno is impressive. The pool is a really good size and is lovely to cool down in on a hot day. Often there is a welcoming breeze wafting over the terrace keeping the heat of the day pleasant. There is lots of outdoor space and the garden is very private. The pizza oven was great fun and was well used. We all got involved in making them and they were as good as any on offer in the local restaurants.

The location was perfect for exploring this beautiful area of Italy. We certainly recommend visiting Matera, Ostuni, Alberobello, Martina Franca, Fasana & Lecce, along with the many beaches dotted along the coast. If you get a chance do take advantage of chartering the Yacht with Captain Greg, what a lovely peaceful experience. The whole family enjoyed swimming in the sea and looking out for Dolphins and Turtles.

Booking was very easy, Jackie was extremely professional and ensured we were well looked after. I have no hesitation in recommending Puglia Holiday Rentals and I would certainly book with Jackie again without any hesitation. I particularly appreciated it that our security deposit was back in our bank account before we had even left the country. I am sure we will be back soon.

In the opposite direction is the town of Martina Franca, a wonderful Southern Italian town with many restaurants, cafe/bars and ice cream parlours.
