About Rozelle

We are an English family currently located in Switzerland due to work commitments. We spend most of our holidays in Italy, where we have made many friends and have really fallen in love with the country.

Rozelle purchased this villa in 2007

Why Rozelle chose Ceglie Messapica

We love Puglia because it exemplifies the real Italy, a slower and more pleasurable pace of life... and it has the added benefit that not many people have discovered it yet!

There really is something for everyone in Puglia from sun kissed beaches, fantastic cusine, historical towns and monuments.

It is also easily accessible with Brindisi airport only about 40 minutes away and Bari around 1 hours drive.

Ceglie Messapica is a 10 minute car journey away.

What makes this villa unique

The property has the benefit of being quiet and set among the beauty of the olive and fruit trees.

You really feel secluded and can get away from the hustle and bustle of modern life and relax but it is only a short drive to the towns of Ceglie Messapica, Francavilla Fontana and the famous 'White City' of Ostuni.

A picturesque, peaceful well maintainted property

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Trulli Rosa. The property was well maintained and very private sitting amongst the olive groves. Our 2 young children enjoyed the pool and there were lots of comfortable covered areas to get out of the midday sun when the temperature gets too hot, the trulli also keeps quite cool. Overall the property is well equipped with games, dvd's and a table tennis table to keep everyone amused. We had a very relaxing time and would highly recommend the property for anyone looking to get away from it all.

Huge pool and lovely trullo

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay here! Amazing pool and lovely outdoor area. Very well equipped and maintained. Kids really appreciated the wii and dvds. So quiet in the day...we had foxes visit the pool while we were there along with frogs and there were lots of lovely butterflies and little lizards scurrying about. Really nice welcome pack, had everything you needed and more. Loved the pool house/kitchen and barbecue area, photos don't do it justice!! Very rural location with a v bumpy road which was the only draw back for us, but hardly a major problem!!

A perfect base for exploring the laid back charms of Puglia

  • 5 of 5

Trulli Rosa was an utter treat.

Set deep within the olive groves of the Itria Valley, we were utterly seduced by the tranquility - disturbed only by the swallows energetically swooping over the enormous pool.

The pictures on the website struggle to do the property and its grounds justice. We loved using the oversized outdoor dining table and benches - the perfect spot for lazy breakfasts and lazier lunches - picking sun-warmed figs from the garden, and lounging in the comfy covered pergola.

Our stay coincided with the 2017 Lucifer heatwave, but even 30C temperatures at night caused us little discomfort in our gorgeous, thick-walled Trulli coned bedroom. Sleeping there was a dream.

Rozelle was the perfect host, making sure that we had all the info we needed in advance of the stay, that we were met by the property manager on arrival, and that we were stocked with really handy groceries on our first morning.

With such hot weather during our stay, we did not explore the area extensively, preferring the refuge of the pool. However, trips into Ceglie, along with Ostuni and Cisternino, were enjoyable and an easy drive away. We will need to return to test out the Ionian beaches.

Eating well is taken to a whole new level in Puglia, and Rozelle's excellent list of local restaurants is testament to this. Some of our favs were Cibus in Ceglie and Da Zio in Cisternino.

We are already thinking about when we can return to discover more gastronomic delights!

Charming high quality trulli delivered for us!

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 4 (2 adults & 2 youngish children) and really enjoyed our stay in this lovely property. The trulli renovations were of a high quality and it was well equipped to support family meals and evenings in with plenty of DVDs plus a Nintendo system. The pool was a good size & well maintained, providing the opportunity for a lovely dip when the heat got too much. The surrounding farmland offered traditional olive trees and some amazing cactus plants where we picked ‘pricky pears’.

Ceglie Messapica was a pretty town with a surprisingly large amount of restaurant choices and some good ice cream parlours for late night desserts too! We definitely needed a car to get around exploring some charming Italian villages, and be aware that some shops still close for long lunches so make sure you time visits right. It get our vote!

Charente maritime

wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

This place is ideal for relaxing and visiting around. The villa is just beautiful, well equipped and has a good layout. Fantastic swimming pool, very clean and well maintained, with a gazebo for lazing around. It looks just like it does on the pictures! The olive trees and other fruit trees also make the garden very special. Ceglie-Messapica, a short 10mn drive, is a gorgeous and authentic village where you'll find everything you need. Highly recommended!!!

Peace and Tranquility

  • 5 of 5

If you want a relaxing and peaceful holiday in a beautiful location then look no further. We spent a very enjoyable time with our family living mostly outside amongst the backdrop of the olive groves. The trulli has been sympathetically restored and is very spacious and well equipped and there is something for everyone. The outdoor space is spectacular, with a huge pool, a lovely covered seating area providing shade and somewhere to read a book. Family meals are taken outside on a huge table big enough for everyone, and at night you have the stars to gaze at whilst enjoying a glass of locally produced wine. There is also lots to do in the surrounding areas with numerous historic sleepy towns and beaches if you can pull yourself away from the trulli. We would highly recommend this property and look forward to returning next year.
