About the Owner

My wife and I have been travelling to Puglia for over 15 years. We love the region so much that in 2004 we bought our own trullo.

Guestbook comments from the owner

June 2013 - We stayed at Trullo Fedelle for a wonderful week. The pace of life and local surroundings made for one of the best and most relaxing holidays we have ever had. What a beautiful house! We felt immediately rested and ready to explore some of the most delicious local food. So thank you for paying attention to detail, and the opportunity to enjoy this warm and inviting place.

Hotel Reviewers



August 2009 - although we live in Italy, we hadn't yet been to Puglia, so having the full, rural trullo experience, and in such a beautiful part of the province, was a wonderful experience. Trullo Fedelle has clearly been renovated with sympathy and care, and the gardens are great for exploring - and picking delicious figs! Going for a run in the evenings along the quiet backroads was one of the highlights. Ceglie is deceptively large and requires much more exploring, as does the whole region, and we will return. Thank you for the opportunity to stay in your trullo.

As a family we've never been to Italy, let alone the south, but we had such an amazing time. The house is fantastic and I can't recommend it highly enough.

Peaceful in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Trullo Fedelle is a fantastic place to stay. Approximately 5 km from the gorgeous and unspoilt town of Ceglie Messapica it is the perfect location to discover and explore Puglia.

The Trullo is in a quiet spot but an easy drive to the Ceglie. It is surrounded by olive, fig, walnut, plum and prickly pear trees with a vine right outside the kitchen door and you are encouraged to pick whatever you want, and it is all delicious!

The Trullo has plenty of space for a family of five or six. We were there with our 19 year old son and daughters aged 17 and 14 and had enough room and privacy for everyone. The pool is perfect. It is unheated but this is a positive thing as most days it is 30c plus and plunging in is a delight in the heat of the afternoon!

Everything a family needs is provided, including all linen and even pool towels with plenty of crockery, cutlery and pots or pans in the kitchen.

From the outset, Silvio (the owner) provides great communication and is very helpful and quickly answers any questions you have. When we were there he kept in touch by text to make sure we were all OK. Hilary and Rocco are the local property managers and are brilliant. If you need anything they are quick to respond.

You will need a car to make the most of this place but it is easy to get around Puglia and we found the locals everywhere warm, friendly, patient with our poor Italian and willing to help if you were polite and friendly in return. There are few tourists, other than in the the more obvious hotspots like Lecce or along parts of the coast but generally you will see very few British tourists. We visited lots of the beautiful local towns from Lecce in the south to Ostuni (nearby), Polignano a Mare, Egnazia (Roman ruins), Monopoli, Alberobello, Martina Franca, Oria.....and the list goes on. We found that most places were close enough to take to visit in the morning before things close (usually around 1pm) returning to Trullo Fedelle for some poolside relaxation.

We loved the Italian evenings, especially as there were so so many festivals going on, including in Ceglie if you don't want to travel further afield. Each town is very unique with its own personality and way of doing things and with thoughts this was great.

Food in Ceglie is amazing with some fab restaurants, We enjoyed Cibus and La Trattoria Piacere E Tradizioni but all we tried were good. Trip Advisor is a good guide as always.

Highly Recommended. Thanks Silvio!

Little gem

  • 4 of 5

This is such a special place. In the heart of stunning scenery, away from the main tourist drag yet close to the lovely little town of Ceglie. Great base for touring the area too

The priority is charming, well kept and beautifully furnished - a delight! Nothing was a trouble to the owner (who was always available by text) or the housekeeper and her husband. Great new pool too. Definitely a place to stay but you will need a car

Ceglie is lovely and the people so friendly. Take a trip into Martina Franca and Ostuni and if you're up for the drive Lecce too! The history is wonderful as is the food and the wine and the weather!

Facilities

From the Owner

The trullo is located in the famous Val d’Itria and is perfectly placed to explore the cultural diversity of Puglia. The historical town of Ceglie Messapica is 5km away. This ‘centre of gastronomy’ is home to some of the best restaurants in Puglia as well as a weekly market (Saturday), artisan shops selling homemade pasta, bread and pastries, fresh meat, fish and local delicacies and convenient supermarkets. Nearby is the white city of Ostuni as well as the picturesque towns of Cisternino, Martina Franca and, of course, Alberobello the ‘city of trullos’. The glorious sandy beaches of the Adriatic and Ionian coasts are also
