What a wonderful way to immerse yourself in the laid-back Apulian lifestyle. Our week-long stay at the trulli started with an afternoon sitting in the back gardens watching far off thunderstorms roll over the olive groves, and enjoying a roaring fire set between cozy reading nooks. The rest of the week was just as charming. There were only two of us and we enjoyed having the space, but the property would be well suited for several couples or a family. The pool was in excellent repair and we used it daily (and at night, it’s lovely lit up). The kitchen was small but well equipped, perfect for one cook. The bed was very firm, not my preference but comfortable all the same. The bathroom was simple and fine. There was a slightly damp smell in the building, it had rained a lot before we arrived. It didn’t bother us, we had the windows open, but someone with allergies might have minded. Remember to add soap and shampoo to your packing list. WiFi was very good and reached out to the pool, we couldn’t find any English channels on the TV but didn’t miss it. We made good use of the outdoor barbecue pit set beneath an old olive tree, just because we could. The mosquitos were bad, but we had spray, and wine.
As far as location, the trulli is tucked into a flat, rural-feeling neighbourhood of acreage properties, very quiet but for a neighbour’s dog. It's perfectly situated for day trips to Puglia's highlights. Ceglie Messapica is a sleepy stunner of a town worth exploring for foodies, just about a 10 minutes drive away, full of restaurants from family style to trendy cafes to Michelin starred, and Ostuni has a Saturday market, a fishmonger, and a well stocked supermarket where we picked up lots of local product. Sabrina was great, very attentive and accessible, and Patrizia was also good to deal with throughout the booking process. Highly recommended.
Thanks for your review! You too have been fantastic! I'm sorry for the feeling of moisture but this year, oddly enough for the season, in August and September is always rained ...... and was too hot to turn on the heater ....
We are building the new outdoor kitchen with barbecue, so I hope you come to try it
This is a beautiful and sensitive conversion, with stone finishes, stone basins and small touches inside and outside that feel just right. The dining and lounge areas were fine for 6 people. The narrow galley kitchen took a bit of getting used to, but it was so well-equipped that we were still finding new things at the end of the week!
There is a good amount of seating space outside, enough for people to disappear off into a corner if they want to read a book or listen to some music, while the others chat. The pool is lovely, a good size for proper swimmers, and was still warm enough at the beginning of October to swim in.
The property is in the middle of an olive grove, surrounded by similar properties, but not at all overlooked. We enjoyed strolling round the boundary, collecting pomegranates, quinces and walnuts.
It is very well located for the charming nearby towns: we visited Ostuni, Ceglie Messapica, Cisternino, Locorotondo and Alberobello (still busy at this time of year but not too bad), as well as the prehistoric excavations at Egnazia and the lovely baroque town of Lecce, which we reached by train, highly recommended. There are many restaurants in each of these locations, which we enjoyed sampling.
However, there were some drawbacks. We were badly bitten by mosquitoes and some other insect that brought us out in big red patches, this despite the insect screens on every door and window. The lights kept flickering in the house as the water pump turned on and off, although we turned off the main pool supply, as Patrizia suggested. This did not matter in the day but was annoying at night. The room in the annexe is by no means as spacious and beautiful as the two main bedrooms and it was hard to get a steady temperature in its shower.
But all in all, it was a most enjoyable week in a lovely property in an interesting area.
Thank you for your review, it was great to have you in Puglia! And thank you for the feedback: we had our electrician look over at the light issue, and it is now fixed. We hope to see you soon again!
We spent a week at this incredible trulli with our three children in July. We have travelled many places and we all agreed this is the most beautiful spot of all. The trull is even more perfect than the photos. It is so well maintained and spotless inside and out. It is very stylish yet also very comfortable. It had everything we needed and more. From the rain shower to the Nespresso machine and the incredilbe Italian ceramics in the kitchen…we felt truly spoiled. There was a bottle of chilled wine and food for breakfast when we arrived which was much appreciated. There is a great grocery store a short drive from the trulli which makes shopping very easy.
Patrizia, the owner, was delightful to deal with from start to finish. Her agent, Sabrina, greeted us at the trulli and gave us lots of information about the trulli itself and directions to everything we needeed. Sabrina was available at any time if we needed anything.
If you stay at the trulli, you must book a cooking class with Sabrina and her lovely mother. We had a hands-on class where we learned to make traditional Puglian specialties. We all had lots of fun trying to roll the orrechiette pasta! We sat down to a superb meal afterward.
The trulli is absolutely stunning inside. We truly fell in love with the outdoor spaces Patrizia has created. There is a shady breakfast table in the garden, a lounging area perfect for a pre-dinner and after dinner drink, a gorgeous wooden dinner table under an olive tree, and a hanging bed which was perfect for napping. With three kids, the pool was the highlight! It is clean and warm and absolutely gorgeous. We had to force ourselves to stop sunning and swimming to go out and explore the towns close by!
The trulli is located close to all of the beauitful towns of Puglia - Ostuni, Martina Franca and Alberobello were our favourites. We drove to Lecce as well. The beach is very close by. Sabrina recommended we go to Lido Stella. We loved it so much we went twice! There is a 5 euro fee to park your car in a nice shady spot. There are loungers and umbrellas for rent, great food, change rooms and washrooms and very friendly staff. Don't miss it!
From start to finish, the trulli was perfection. We truly thank Patrizia and Sabrina for making our week in Puglia one we will never forget.
Thank you for your email. I appreciate receiving your feedback, it helps us improve! I hope you will return soon to Puglia, we'll be happy to hear from you.
We spent a great week in this Trulli. If you seek a very beautifully equipped place in nice and quite surroundings - this place is perfect. The house has a nice local decor and is equipped with everything you might need for your holidays. Many places to sit around the house, a beautiful, warm and clean pool. Our children could easily find what to do around, we could easily travel around to see beautiful small towns, have a swim in Adriatic sea.
The owner is very responsive, a local lady Sabrina is always available in case you need help or a simple advise. Highly recommended!
A great stay at this beautiful Trulli!
Such a wonderful place! We (5 of us from the USA) recently returned from a one week stay here. The property is absolutely beautiful - very private, peaceful, and surrounded by olive groves, yet also within a few miles of a town. Cherries can be picked and eaten from the many cherry trees, and fresh herbs abound. Bicycles are provided and we enjoyed exploring the area on them.
The interior is clean, beautifully decorated, and appointed with everything you might possibly need for your stay. (We were particularly fond of the Nespresso machine and the capsules that the owner provides). On one of the nights we chose to have a catered meal prepared for us by Sabrina (a charming local woman who manages the Trulli for the owner) and it was delicious!
The Trulli is in a central location and from it we were able to easily visit many towns, including: Ostuni, Ceglie Messipica, Cisternina, Martina Franca, Locorotundo, Alberbello, Lecce, Polignano a Mare, and Trani.
We loved our stay here! The owner, and Sabrina, were very responsive and a pleasure to deal with as well.
Beautiful home and garden. Owner very responsive.
As an Italian living in the US, I really looked forward to a vacation back to Italy, and to (re)discovering Puglia. My girlfriend and I had a great time over there, and the food, and the beaches...
This house was rehabbed with great attention to details,and it is so well kept, clean, functional. We were able to eat fruit from the trees in the garden (figs, almonds, grape, nectarines), use bikes, and enjoy the very quiet surroundings. Hospitality was great: because the owner was in Rome, a local guy (Mario?) welcomed us, and was truly available for anything we needed. Including changing light bulbs... a stress-free vacation!
The excellent geographical position makes this "ideal starting point" for those who want to take a beach vacation, hiking and / or venture into relaxing naturalistic excursions, cultural and gastronomic. The Adriatic coast is only 15 Km with its beautiful beaches, Ostuni the 'White City' 6 km, Fasano (30 Km) where you can visit the famous Zoo Safari, Alberobello (38 km), the village of Trulli (declared by 'Unesco World Heritage); the extraordinary caves of Castellana (58 Km), and then again Cisternino (10 Km) to taste excellent meat cooked on the grill in the numerous "stove", Martina Franca (14 Km) and its beautiful old town, Locorotondo (Km 29 ), Brindisi (46 km) called Gateway to the East, Lecce (80 km) baroque city, Otranto (125 km) with its spectacular landscapes, S. Maria di Leuca (157 km) in antiquity also called "finibus terrae", Gallipoli (km 120), Manduria (km 35), Taranto (40 km), Grottaglie (20 km) famous around the world for its traditional pottery.
