Very peaceful location good for exploring local area
Ideal for 2 people, simple but comfortable. We were the only people there so had the pool to ourselves. Not sure we would have enjoyed it as much if we had to share the pool, as the space around the pool, where you could sit in the sun was quite small. Combined oven grill quite small, used BBQ most of the time. Directions out of Ostuni could have been better, a road number would have helped. Overall a very relaxing place and holiday.
A wonderful place to stay in a beautiful area
We have just returned from a truly wonderful week staying at the Lamia property. The house and secluded grounds down to the pool and around were beautiful - full of olive and fig trees. And it was the perfect place to relax between visiting the many incredible places nearby.
The house is connected to the trullo house nextdoor but the properties run at right anlges to each other so although the front doors are side by side the houses then form an 'L' shape meaning that at the back of the Lamia house you have a wonderfully private space to relax and enjoy the view.
There were four of us: 2 adults and 2 children (8 and 15) and although the house is small we managed very well in the space. The bedroom is so large that we moved one of the single beds from the kitchen to the bedroom giving more space in the kitchen and allowing the 15 year old a room of his own. Between the bedroom and kitchen there is bathroom and also a side door to the house meaning you can even get up and pop out to the pool and relax outside without even needing to disturb whoever is having a sleep in the kitchen!
The kitchen is quite basic but has everything that we needed: fridge, dishwasher and a 3 burner stove. With both beds in the kitchen the room is quite tight but it's nicer to be outside anyway. Although, as we moved the second bed to the main bedroom we could easily fit the four of us around the kitchen table for evening games of cards when the mosquitos were out. The shower was lovely and there is also an outside shower on the roof of the building (although this is really on the roof of the Trullo house nextdoor so although we were shown it we didn't like to use it when our neighbours were in). The wifi signal was generally very good - the booster box is on the outside of the building so the signal outside was always good and inside behind the thick stone walls we rarely had any problems connecting. We took an Alexa speaker and streamed music in the kitchen with no issue.
The pool was ideal for us. It was an even depth all across, probably about 110cm (our 8 year old is 130cm tall and the water was just below his shoulders). So we could all relax there without worry and swim and cool down.
And there are so many beautiful towns to visit nearby. Ceglie Messapica is simply beautiful and as a base to visit both coasts, Lecce, Ostuni, Alberobello, Locorotondo etc etc it is ideally situated.
A beautiful area that we will definitely return to.
Lovely countryside location
The location of the trullo was perfect for exploring the Valle d’Itria.
We were lucky to be at the start of warm weather and enjoy the pool. It was a quiet location in the countryside. Excellent communication with the manager. Extremely helpful.
Thanks Martin and Linda, we're glad you enjoyed your stay! We hope to welcome you again in the future. Great guests !!
Compact and tastefully decorated traditional trulli in a beautiful rural setting
A great little find- we were worried it would be a bit of a squeeze for 4 of us but we managed well- the kitchen area is very small but adequate for preparing simple meals which works well in conjunction with eating out on some nights at nearby Ceglie Messapica. There is not a true second bedroom - there are 2 singles including a truckle pull out bed- both of which are in the kitchen / living area but easily stowed away during the day. Lovely private covered veranda with large table provides an extra ‘outside room’ effectively for meals.
Maison charmante, lieux très agréable, très calme, en pleine campagne, dans une très belle région de l'Italie. Les propriétaires sont sympas et très discrets. Je recommande sans hésitation.
Schönes kleines Häuschen
Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt sehr genossen.Lamia liegt recht einsam in einem Olivenhain weit außerhalb aber das war uns bewusst .
Coast / Beach:
Wherever you are in Puglia, you are never far from the sea. The nearest beach (Torre Canne) is less than 25 minutes drive from Ceglie Messapica.
Ryanair operate daily flights from Stansted to Bari or Brindisi airports. You can also fly from Manchester to Gatwick / Gatwick to Bari with BA or Leeds / Bradford to Rome with Jet2 / Rome to Bari or Brindisi with a choice of airlines. Ceglie Messapica is just an hour's drive from Bari and 35 minutes from Brindisi. A car is essential and all car hire companies operate from both airports.
Nearest town Ceglie Messapica (3 minutes); Ostuni (10 minutes); Cisternino (10 minutes); Martina Franca (15 minutes);
Puglia runs from the spur to the heel of the Italian "boot". It is a land of rich red earth, ancient olive groves and unspoilt coastlines. The area produces wonderful fruit, vegetables, olive oil, pasta and an excellent selection of quality DOC wines, all readily available. Dining out is much cheaper than in the UK and there are plenty of opportunities to sample the local specialties. Martina Franca and Ostuni are ideal towns for shopping! It is an hour away from the city of Lecce, known as "the Florence of the South" and famous for its Baroque architecture.
