Why Marina chose Ceglie Messapica
We came on holiday to Puglia for the first time only a few years ago and loved the area so much that we decided to create a holiday home by completely restoring an old trullo. This type of farm building is unique to Puglia and we were delighted to be able to preserve a building which represents an important part of the region's cultural heritage.

So wonderful it should be a secret!
Absolutely amazing trulli villa: superbly positioned, not overlooked at all, glorious grounds, fabulous accommodation and just so smart. So much space and great pool. Wonderful. Very responsive owners and local support. A super region to explore: so much to see. We will return!
wonderful rural retreat
A stunning trullo property in the heart of Puglia. The property has been refurbished beautifully without losing the authentic Italian style.. The main house has two lovely bedrooms with en-suite and a generous sized lounge area and kitchen/diner. The third bedroom is attached with its own entrance and has a large double bed and en-suite. There is not a lot of storage space for clothes and is overall a little small.
Outside there is a lovely shaded patio and eating area with BBQ and then there is the magnificent pool area which is set higher up in the very extensive grounds. We spent a lot of time at the pool and out two youngish grandchildren (7 & 4) had a whale of a time jumping splashing and just messing about. The also enjoyed Lizard spotting and playing hide and seek in the grounds.
The fact that the property is very rural is its only downside as the nearest town for shopping is Ceglie Messapica which is about 8km away but that is a small price to pay for the chance to enjoy such a fantastic holiday is such a beautiful setting.
A wonderful Italian rural retreat.
A wonderful, peaceful, rural Italian retreat.
The property is off the beaten track yet in an accessible location for many of the lovely sites that Puglia has to offer.
We enjoyed picking the figs and almonds in the garden which went very well with the generous welcome pack provided.
The photos do not do the property justice, particularly the kitchen which is actually more spacious than the website suggests.
We hope to return one day.
wunderschöne trullo in toller lage. schöne strände 1h entfernt. leider nicht so sauber, wie erwartet. bei starkem regen läuft wasser in die trullo. nach beschwerden beim vermieter, kein entgegenkommen seinerseits. langes warten auf rücküberweisung der kaution.
Es tut uns sehr leid, dass Sie den Trullo nicht so sauber wie erwartet vorfanden. Wir haben ihr Feedback an die Putzfrau weitergeleitet und seitdem haben keine Gäste Probleme gehabt. Danke auch, dass Sie uns über die vom Regen verursachten Probleme informiert haben. Wir werden uns in den kommenden Wochen um eine Lösung kümmern. Was die Kaution angeht – diese wird automatisch 7 Tage nach Ende des Besuchs zurücküberwiesen.
Magnifique trullo très bien décoré et rénové !
Nous avons passé une superbe semaine en famille dans ce trullo très bien situé pour sillonner les Pouilles.
Cadre idyllique au milieu des oliviers
Le trullo est parfaitement équipé et restauré avec beaucoup de goût.
La piscine un peu à l'écart du trullo est très agréable.
Nous recommanderons cette location à nos amis
Our trullo is about 45 minutes' drive from Brindisi Airport and 80 minutes from Bari Airport.
There are plenty of charming historic towns within a 20 km radius: Ceglie Messapica (the gastronomic capital of Puglia), Ostuni ("the white city" - don't miss the old town), Martina Franca, Cisternino, Locorotondo and, of course, Alberobello (a UNESCO heritage site full of trulli).
Slightly further away are the stunning historic towns of Lecce, Matera, Otranto and Gallipoli. There are plenty of beaches to explore on both the Adriatic coast (30 min) and Ionian coast (45 min).
There is a huge bustling local market on Saturdays in Ostuni as well as smaller weekly markets in the surrounding towns. We highly recommend the excellent Masseria Seppunisi between Spasimato and Ceglie Messapica where they sell their own dairy products fresh from the farm and other local delicacies.
There are 2 large, well-stocked supermarkets in Ceglie as well as plenty of local bakers, butchers, greengrocers and delicatessens. The town offers a wide variety of restaurants, ice cream parlours and cafes.
