Trullo Tranquillo is a romantic one bedroom stone trullo sleeps 3, nestling in 1.5 acres of fruit and nut trees in the heart of the beautiful and peaceful Puglian countryside. The perfect place to relax in the quiet surroundings.

The kitchenette is well equipped and the trullo has its own external wood-fired pizza oven with paddle. Enjoy the organic fruits of the trullo's land when in season. 2 bicycles are available for guests to use.

About Sharon Teague

I am a graphic designer and artist based in Suffolk, England.

I love all things Italian and decided to purchase a holiday let in the beautiful Puglian countryside.

Sharon Teague purchased this cottage in 2016

Why Sharon Teague chose Ceglie Messapica

I holidayed in Trullo Tranquillo (then known as Trullo Oleandro) in June 2016. I fell in love with this gorgeous little trullo set in its tranquil land and purchased it mid August 2016.

I very much hope you enjoy your stay here too.

Stay in Trullo Tranquillo for the perfect retreat and a great opportunity to experience a beautifully restored ancient cone building. "A trullo (plural, trulli) is a traditional dry stone hut with a conical roof. Their style of construction is specific to the Itria Valley in Puglia, Southern Italy. Trulli were generally constructed as temporary field shelters and storehouses or as permanent dwellings by small proprietors or agricultural labourers."

Beautiful, rural trullo

  • 5 of 5

We have just had a very relaxing stay in trullo tranquillo. It just wouldn't have been right to holiday in Puglia and not stay in a trullo......and this was a beautiful example. Well kitted out, with everything you need - the pizza oven especially, helped to make this an authentic experience. Set in 1 1/2 acres, the garden feels very private and is well stocked with fruit and nut trees. We enjoyed visiting the nearby towns - Ceglie, the nearest town, was full of character and characters(!) and everyone we came across was friendly and helpful. Thank you Sharon for allowing us to stay in your trullo and thank you to Claudia for all your help. I would recommend this property for anyone wanting a tranquil holiday!

Great place to spend some time to get away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the trullo. The near by town was great for an evening drink with the locals all sat in the town square. Everyone was very friendly and helpful would stay again 😁

A beautiful quiet holiday home perfect for relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

The Trullo is beautiful building surrounded by the Italian countryside. The property has all the modern features of a home in a great layout and set-up. The Pizza Oven was great fun to try out and the property is not too far from nearby towns. A sat-nav is a good idea as the roads and country lanes all do look quiet similar! Thank you Sharon for a lovely peaceful holiday.

Lovely Trullo and area-highly recommend.

  • 5 of 5

The Trullo has been nicely kitted out with everything you need and has a really comfortable bed! The outside space is lovely and feels very private. We enjoy meals outside and relaxing on the hammock. It's in a good place to base yourself to visit all the beautiful towns and countryside of Puglia. Sharon was really responsive and helpful with any information we needed before and during our stay. We really enjoyed our stay in a Trullo and would highly recommend it.

Geweldige plek - huis - tuin, een aanrader!

  • 5 of 5

Wat een plek, midden tussen de fruitbomen in grote tuin, en dan ook nog in een originele Trullo. Wel klein natuurlijk, altijd aan je hoofd denken, maar goed voorzien van alle noodzakelijke dingen, een uitstekend bed. Verder leef je toch vooral buiten. Daarin even een klein minpuntje: lekkere kussens voor in de stoelen zou nog beter zijn. Maar ach: het goede leven in Italie geeft veel energie en geluk: prachtige stadjes, lekker eten en enorm veel bloemen. Nog even vermelden: de gastvrouw Claudia is geweldig, staat altijd voor je klaar, spreekt goed Engels en misschien kun je bij haar eten!

Authentic experience in a great location

  • 4 of 5

Trullo Tranquillo offers a truly authentic experience. Visiting the area and seeing the trulli is nice, but staying in one is something else. The trullo itself is certainly better than basic. The airco was most welcome, especially during the heat wave we experienced. The warm welcome by and hospitality from housekeeper Claudia only added to the fun. The rural area is very quiet. The orchard offers a nice variety of fruit bearing trees. All in all a very recommendable location from which to explore Puglia! A big thank you to Sharon and Claudia
