About Ruth

Tony & I live on the south coast of England in a village close to the sea.

I am in the clothing trade & have been lucky enough for my work to take me all over the world.

We both have a passion for Italy especially the area of Puglia where our property is located.We hope that clients will feel the same when they visit.

Ruth purchased this villa in 2008

Why Ruth chose Ceglie Messapica

The property was bought as rustic with non of the modern facilities we take for granted. We have lovingly had it restored by artisans.

Our agent suggested we met the artisans. This we did & it proved beneficial on several levels, especially for building mutual trust.

Trulli were used during harvesting season as a place for farmers to sleep & eat without returning to town, but their entrances are generally very low.

Tony is 6' tall & when the entrance to our trullo was undergoing its work the builder raised the doorway to accommodate his height.

I had seen trulli on TV & we decided to go & visit the area as it looked so peaceful. It took us quite a while to find the right property but here it is fully restored in an area we know & love.

What makes this villa unique

The trulli are unique to Puglia & whilst we were looking for a property we stayed in one in Alberobello & loved it. At our property you can stand at the door & just hear the sounds of nature & enjoy the gentle breeze that sometimes blows across the land & through the trees.

Trullo Gioiellino in the countryside near Ceglie Messapica
average rating of 4.0 based on 1 reviews

A marvellously peaceful location

  • 4 of 5

This is an attractive and well equipped villa in a truly rural location, yet only 10 minutes drive from the lovely town of Ceglie Messapica. Set amongst olive and almond trees, there is a sense of being much further from civilisation than you actually are. There is plenty of wildlife around and the stars at night are crystalline.

The group of three Trulli provides a very attractive bedroom suite with an excellent shower room. While this section has no air-conditioning, there are fans provided to keep air circulating.

The lamia has A/C which was very welcome in the first week when the temperature hit 46c. In the lamia are another double bedroom and a small twin, and an additional bathroom with a shower over the bath. The small kitchen has most of the equipment which is needed for cooking but is not a great design, and we found it quite hard to work in there. Most evening we used the BBQ which is of a design that makes it hard to light but with perseverance we succeeded.

The beds were comfortable, and the place immaculately clean. We were kindly provided with clean sheets and towels at the end of the first week, and the agent was exceedingly quick at solving most of the little problems which arose. What we missed was a proper folder of information about the operation of equipment and location of switches for various things. One day we had no hot water and it turned out that the switches controlling the heaters were in the same console as the light switches in the bathroom, and we had accidentally hit them.

Ceglie, the local town, seems quite sleepy during the day, but is a very happening place in the evenings, with excellent restaurants at a variety of price points, and some great places to drink including the outdoor jazz bar near the ducal palace. We found the locals universally friendly and welcoming.

In Puglia there are many historic towns.

Locorontondo which is a small citadel town known for its excellent wines.

Ostuni (the white city) again a citadel town steeped in history & is visible from quite a distance. Lots of bars & restaurants to explore in the charming narrow streets of this beautiful town.

Alberobello (the trulli town) A breath taking sight of the old town centre consisting of trulli properties. Visit the trulli shops,churches, bars & restaurants. There is also sometimes a street market here.

.Lecce (full of Roman history) & many more historic towns to visit.

Of course there is Ceglie Messapica your nearest town with supermarkets, bars & restaurants plus the railway station if you wish to explore via public transport. There are 2 coasts to choose from the Adriatic & the Mediterranean if you wish to visit a beach.
