A lovely Trullo in an elevated position with views over countryside and our local town of Cisternino (3kms), beautiful gardens and pool set in 2 acres of olive and fruit trees. Self catering with one double bedroom, bathroom, sitting room and kitchen. The Trullo is very appealing architecturally, and furnished comfortably and is well equipped. Private courtyard outside with table, chairs, recliners. There is a BBQ by the courtyard. The main garden has many places to sit and relax: by the fish pond, near the pool, or on the upper patio - (there are speakers and an ipod adaptor). Ideal for walking, cycling. A rural location so you need a car. The property is very easy to locate, even arriving at night. Sandy and rocky beaches 20 mins away - we provide beach towels, but also have beach chai...A lovely Trullo in an elevated position with views over countryside and our local town of Cisternino (3kms), beautiful gardens and pool set in 2 acres of olive and fruit trees.

A rural location so you need a car. The property is very easy to locate, even arriving at night. Sandy and rocky beaches 20 mins away - we provide beach towels, but also have beach chairs and umbrella. The old areas of the towns (Centro Storico) are very attractive and historically interesting; all have excellent restaurants. Towns within 30 mins drive through the Valle d'Itria: Locorotondo, Martina Franca, Alberobello, Ceglie Messapica, Ostuni. The area is well known for its wines, olive oil, fruits and vegetables, seafood and meats. Main towns 1 to 2 hours drive: Bari, Lecce, Brindisi (where the Appian Way ends), Taranto. Visit: Castel del Monte, Castellana Grotte, Otranto and Santa Maria di Leuca. For something different: walk in the beautiful National Park of Pollino, 'tackle' its Raganello Gorge, raft on the river Lao. (excursions arranged by us - day trip or longer). Trullo Caterina offers complete relaxation, with the occasional interruption by one of the pets! The owners, Andrew and Jill, and their son, James, are there if you need them - but can remain invisible, if your prefer! Puglia offers good food and wine, history, architecture, daily market (somewhere!), lovely coastline and beaches, delightful countryside. The region produces some excellent wines and there are numerous wineries where these can be bought - and, of course, sampled! For a great nightlife: visit mid-June to mid-Sept. July and August can be hot, so Spring and Autumn better for sightseeing. Olive picking starts in late autumn. We produce our own organic extra virgin olive oil; a bottle is provided along with other local produce. We look forward to welcoming you one day. If you would like to stay at Trullo Caterina, we ask for a 25% deposit to confirm the booking with the balance due 8 weeks before arrival. We are retaining 2016 rates for 2017.More
