Overview

Property

Updated: 16-Nov-2016
Trullo / House in Ceglie Messsapica, Brindisi, Puglia, Italy - Tranquil Countryside Location Of Olive And Fruit Trees, 10 Mins To Ostuni

Trulli delle Rondini is traditional stone building set in 10 tranquil hectares of olives and fruit trees. It will sleep six comfortably in the 3 air-conditioned bedrooms. Unlike many trullo complexes it boasts a spacious living area with arched stone ceilings which blend well with the fully exposed traditional stone work of the original trulli building. It has a well appointed, fully equipped modern kitchen and dining area. Outside there is plentiful seating and areas for dining, sunbathing and, importantly in the summer, shading. The 13x5m pool is surrounded by ample terracing and its close proximity to the building make supervising children easier. Alfresco dining is a must in the warmer months and is further enhanced as night falls as the property is enchantingly lit up.It is within easy driving distance of Ceglie Messapica and its many restaurants and the most well known city of Ostuni.

About the Owner

Hi from Roger & Vicki Allan. We are both doctors in Wales and have loved Italy ever since our first visit on honeymoon. Having had triplets and enjoyed wonderful family holidays together over the years we are keen to provide similar holidays for other families. Our knowledge as regular travellers to Italy and as parents has influenced our decisions as to the location of our property and how we've developed it. Wherever you book in Puglia we are confident you will have a brilliant holiday.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Fabulous!"

If you want a place where you can be completely relaxed and comfortable, in the beautifully appointed trullo or around the pool, without noise and distractions (save those of your own family perhaps!), yet easily reach beaches on 2 seas, lovely old Puglian cities and bustling modern markets, then this is the place for you. If not, don't go, obviously. The view of the trullo from the pool as the sun sinks down over it is glorious, especially with a cold glass of Vermentino. Bravo! - T Huckle 2013



"Wonderfully peaceful getaway - perfect get away from it all!"

We loved this villa, our 2 boys had great fun in the pool and we relaxed in the sun. It's a real home from home carefully and thoughtfully fitted for all you need. With a BBQ in the garden and the opportunity to stroll around the shady olive/fig/peach orchard we hardly bothered to venture out!

Highly recommended!! - M Leach 2013

Stunningly unique holiday home. Ideal for families eager from a city detox

  • 4 of 5

A beautifully converted trulli with modern extension. Extremely well equipped with a great deal of thought and effort to give you peace of mind on your holiday. A home from home with every need anticipated. Quite a remote location - recommend a sat nav as off the beaten track. No local eateries or shops within a 10 min drive. Gorgeous pool, great sunset. Very helpful, accommodating and communicative owner.

Beautiful Trullo

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully restored Trulli which is situated in lovely garden. We spent a week in October and enjoyed some lovely weather apart from one thunderstorm but still managed to use the pool every day. The children thoroughly enjoyed the pool especially the diving board. We were met by the property manager who took us to the Trulli and showed us around the property and was available if we needed him throughout the week. Definitely suggest you have a Sat Nav in car as we might have struggled to find way to property without it. There was a very nice welcome pack on arrival which was perfect as we arrived on a Sunday and shops were closed but close by supermarket open the next day with good selection of food. There was everything we needed in the property which was spacious and beautifully furnished.There is plenty to see and do for all ages in the surrounding area but also very relaxing just staying poolside and enjoying the Italian climate. I would highly recommend this Trulli to anyone wishing to explore this part of Italy or just relax in beautiful surroundings. Ostuni which had several good restaurants and gelateria became our favourite place and was only a short drive away.

We were sorry to leave and would have no hesitation in returning to this lovely Trulli.

Fantastic house in a lovely part of Italy

  • 5 of 5

It is very rare that property photographs depict what is actually found on site but this property and grounds are the same, if not better. My family spent two fabulous weeks in July/August 2015 staying at this wonderful property. Roger was very kind and patient with my numerous enquiries prior to and after booking. Thank you. We were met by Rogers contact in Italy, Octavio, who escorted us to the property and on arrival the property was every bit as beautiful as the photographs. No neighbours to speak off, no nasty surprises out of camera shot. The house was spotless, well maintained and well equipped and the pool, especially the diving board, was a big hit with my four children (ages 21-13). The house worked really well for us as a family as the master bedroom is at one end of the house and the other two bedrooms are at the opposite end, so everyone had their own space. The location of the property does seem remote at first (but this is exactly what we wanted) but the nearby towns of Ceglie and Ostuni are only a 10/15 minutes drive away. Both had an abundance of shops and restaurants and numerous events happening in the centres on the evenings and were lovely to stroll around even when nothing was happening - its what the Italians do best. The supermarkets are a short drive away but close enough to visit daily which we just about did. Thank you to Octavios wife who pointed us in the right direction to deal with one of the childrens ear infection, as our Italian is poor and english is not as widely spoken as it is in some parts of Italy, and because of this It was also reassuring to have Octavio at the end of the phone to deal with any minor issues. He always answered immediately and dealt with any matter promptly. As for the location there are some really interesting places to visit in the area if you are prepared to travel an hour or so and really worth while, Matera, Alberobello and Lecce to name but a few. We only ventured to the beach once, which was naturally crowded at that time of year, but the consensus of opinion between myself, my husband and children was why would we travel to a crowded beach when we have such a lovely pool and seating area at the house. We spent many an afternoon playing cards under the shade of the pergola and many an evening sat outside watching the sunset and chatting. Our holiday was a perfect mix of sightseeing and relaxing. Would I return to or recommend this house? Yes, in a heart beat!

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I stayed here in June of last year. The trulli has been lovingly and beautifully restored. It is truly an amazing place to stay and is surrounded by olive trees and fig trees. We met the property manager, a local gentleman, who kindly met us en route so that he could lead the way to the property. I would strongly recommend you have Sat Nav in your car - I'm not sure we would have found our way back to the trulli each night without it! A welcome pack was given to us upon arrival which was very much appreciated and we made good use of it. The owners have thought of everything and it was a real home from home. The local supermarket was only a short drive away and sold excellent quality produce. We spent long, lazy days by the pool and would venture out in the evenings for dinner. Ostuni, the white city, was only a short drive away and we found some lovely restaurants there. Other days, we would venture further afield; there are so many places to explore.

It is honestly one of the most relaxing holidays we have ever had. To wake up each day to beautiful scenery, lovely weather and tranquillity was exactly what we needed. It is so private and peaceful. We really didn't want to come home!

I would thoroughly recommend this villa to anyone.

A wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks in the Trulli delle Rondini. The house is spacious and tastefully furnished. The pool is quite large and even in October we spent some days next to and in the pool. But the house also has a good heating system, so it was cosy and warm on cooler days.

Ottavio, the property manager, was very nice and helpful. When we arrived, there was some local wine and food in the fridge and when we had a problem with the electricity one day, Ottavio immediatey came and solved it.

The house has a large garden. It is located in an area with lots of olive groves. Nearby Ceglie Messapica and Ostuni are pretty towns. To other sights like Lecce or Castel del Monte you need to drive an hour or even a little more.

Location

From the Owner

Puglia offers the certainty of consistent summer sun but also magical springs and autumns. Then there's the wonderful food and wine and the warm-hearted nature of the local Italians themselves. The spectacle of ancient historical towns surrounded by countless olive groves never ceases to delight and never far away lie the beautiful Adriatic and Ionian seas. The countryside offers highly desirable peace and tranquility but step into town in the evening and you will experience the contrasting liveliness of the highly sociable locals.

Adriatic coast: 20 mins drive away -large choice of beaches varying from private beaches where one hires loungers etc to public beaches e.g. Pilone ,near Ostuni and the nature reserve of Torre Guaceto which is nearer to Brindisi.

A cool box, mats and umbrellas are provided.

Facilities

From the Owner

You will be staying in an architecturally unique building and not just another holiday villa.The restoration has been undertaken with great sensitivity and finished beautifully. It's tranquil and secluded rural setting allows for a truly relaxing holiday..so much so that many have been content to simply stay at the trullo and chill out. Ottavio our representative together with his wife Zeni are lovely people. Ottavio's English is excellent and he will be able to help with any problems you might have.
