Holiday Rental House
Our Italian home is a charming, characterful 200 year old trullo with its modern extensions. set in its own garden of olive, fig, cherry and almond trees together with a new pool set in flower beds. The two- level, spacious, paved verandah behind the house, offers sun and shade and cooking on the barbeque. Here you can get away from all the stresses of modern life and relax in sunny tranquillity. The property is private without being isolated, being only 2km from the nearby town of Ceglie Messapica. where there are plenty of restaurants to choose from and convenient grocery shopping either at the market, supermarkets or corner shops.

The property is private without being isolated, being only 2km from the nearby town of Ceglie Messapica. where there are plenty of restaurants to choose from and convenient grocery shopping either at the market, supermarkets or corner shops. Here you are in authentic, rural Puglia with all mod cons. Inside, the house is comprised of two parts: the modern villa with its living room/kitchen, large double bedroom and bathroom; and the trullo with its quaint bedroom under the conical roof and its kitchen and wet room in the new extension. Accommodation is therefore, ideal for two couples, or a small group of friends, as the two parts are private, being separated simply by an internal, locking door. The place is surrounded by its own land which is extensive; a natural haven in which children can play hide and seek. It is within half an hour of the beach, so bag, cool bag, umbrella, beach towels and chairs are provided for a day out. Cupboards contain basic essentials when you arrive, so that you can have that drink on the patio straightaway. There is no need to go out buying things like oil, salt, pepper, tea or coffee, sugar, pasta or spices. If it is the season, you can also help yourself from the garden produce. May is the time for broad beans, cherries and peas; August for figs and almonds or walnuts. A little collection of games exists for the occasional wet day and there is sky television or the radio/CD together with an eclectic mix of music. The keen reader will find a good choice of books. In winter, you can make it cosy with a log fire, whilst there is a gas stove and electric heater together with the air- conditioning which provides warmth in winter and cool air in summer. Ovens are both electric and gas. The price includes all heating, linen and weekly cleaning.More

Interaction with guests
I like to communicate with guests before they go to the house and to exchange texts or emails whilst they are there, especially if they have any concerns. There is free Wifi at the house. I send details of the property's facilities once a deposit has been received and if guests wish, I also send info about eateries and shops or beaches nearby. There is a guest book for feedback and I encourage guests to upload reviews too. There are plenty of brochures at the house, as well as guide books and maps from which to gain insight into distractions and worthwhile visits.

I am very grateful for your positive review. Thank you. It was a pleasure to have you stay in the trullo and to receive your updates whilst you were there. We hope you will visit again.

We were absolutely delighted with this holiday home. Puglia was a new area for us to explore and we loved it. It seems corny to use words like ' authentic' and 'unspoiled' because they have often been over used but in this case it is...More

About the neighbourhood
. There is a lot to explore.Within half an hour of the house, by car, there is the stunningly unusual town of Alberobello full of trulli houses and shops, like some Hobbit town; Ostuni, ; Locorotondo with its tiny historical centre and lovely views; Cisternino with a bigger historical centre and lovely boutiques; Oria and Castellana Grotte with its wonderful caves of stalactites and stalagmites. Lecci, an hour away, is considered to be the Florence of the South, full of baroque architecture and Roman excavations; a little further are the fortified sea-side towns of Gallipoli and Otranto--the latter with a fantastic church with an ossuary and mosaic floor; both with good, little beaches Going North, there is Trani, with castle and cathedral; Castel de Monte, the strange architectural mys...
Getting around
There are motorways and dual carriages within easy reach to access other places, especially those on the coasts. The blue regional buses run frequently to nearby towns. Bigger coaches run to Brindisi, Bari and Taranto and are cheap. Several bars sell tickets. The trains are punctual and efficient and again tickets can be bought at certain shops or at bigger stations. Only small branch lines run from Ceglie itself but it is easy to park at Ostuni and get the train up or down the coast. We left the car there and travelled to both Naples and Sardinia! There is an efficient and luxurious taxi service from Ceglie to further afield. Hire car companies work at the airports and Ryanair partners some to give a good deal.
