Trullo near Ostuni, Brindisi, Puglia - Spacious Living, Spectacular Views, Superb Infinity Pool, Satellite TV, Aircon & Wifi Near Ostuni
Situated at the top of a winding track, Trullo Alto has wonderful views of the countryside yet is within easy reach of the beautiful towns of Ostuni, Cisternino and Ceglie Messapica, and just a short drive away from the coast. It has three double bedrooms, one twin bedroom and three bathrooms, one of which is en-suite so it can comfortably accommodate a large family or group. The large living/dining room and well-equipped kitchen means that there's plenty of lounging space inside, plus a hectare of land around it and a roof terrace with gorgeous views gives lots of options for catching the rays and star gazing. The new 10x5m infinity pool is wonderful with a large terrace around it and shady al-fresco dining. The house is furnished simply and it has so much space that two families or a large group can comfortably holiday together. There are two wood-burners for cooler months so it has appeal for rental outside of the summer holiday season.
About the Owner
We fell in love with Puglia as soon as we came here - the landscapes, the towns, the coast, the food and the people all make it a very special place.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We stayed for two weeks in Trullo Alto which is a lovely villa set on a hillside deep in the beautiful Puglian countryside. The villa was well set up for everything we needed, with a terrific pool and patio and was only 2 mins from a local store or 10 mins from a small town like Ostuni or Cisternino. It is well placed between various great sights and also close to the coast. We were completely taken with Puglia on our first visit to the area; its Trulli (cone shaped houses) and the lovely rural countryside. This is still a part of Italy which has not been overwhelmed by tourism (outside some of the towns like Alborabello which, while amazing, was also a tourist nightmare). Fantastic food, good weather consistently in July (30-37 degrees every day). Overall a great destination, area and super villa.

zwembad goed, binnen is het huis erg verouderd
We waren de eerste week van mei met 8 personen (5 volwassenen en 3 kinderen). De locatie is mooi. Lekker afgelegen maar wel weer redelijk dicht bij Ostuni en Martina Franca. Het zwembad is prima. Mooi aangelegd met heerlijke ligbedden. Het huis binnen is echter erg verouderd. De badkamer op de foto is wel recent opgeknapt, maar de ruimte is zo klein dat de slaapkamer nat wordt al je doucht. De andere badkamers zijn uit de jaren 70, erg klein, onhandig ingericht en allemaal erg verouderd (de douchekraan had je opeens in je hand). De slaapkamers zijn ook klein. Dit geldt tot slot ook voor de bedden (1,90). Mijn voeten lagen steeds buiten het matras. Matras was tevens erg hard. Keuken is prima. Van alle gemakken voorzien. Woonkamer ook prima. Alleen niet gezellig. Zeker in april is dat jammer omdat de avonden koud zijn en je dus binnen moet zitten. Ook jammer was dat de buitentafel en stoelen van plastic waren. Ook dit maakt het niet gezellig. Al met al is het een mooie plek en prima huis. We vonden het echter te duur voor wat je kreeg. De foto's gaven ook geen eerlijk beeld van het huis (binnen). De gastvrouw Andrea was wel top. Heel hulpvaardig. De paar kleine opstart problemen loste ze direct op.
From the Owner
“Trullo Alto, or The House on the Hill, is in a brilliant location for getting to all the pretty towns surrounding it and is also close to the sea. It's a big house so is great for large groups - there's plenty of space for everyone inside and out.”
