TrulliPesto is like Italy’s finest pestos: fresh, made with perfectly blended ingredients, seasoned, and is quintessentially Italian. And like a great pesto dish, your stay at TrulliPesto will linger on the palate of your holiday memories for many years to come.
Freshly restored (completed June 2014), TrulliPesto is a five-coned trulli with private pool, set-back in the countryside and nestled within an olive grove for much sought after privacy, rest and relaxation.
Our trulli has two (2) generously-sized bedrooms (each under its own large trulli cone/vaulted ceiling) which can be configured as two doubles or one double / two singles.
It also has two (2) bathrooms, one of which is ensuite . . . each beneath the charm of it's own large trulli cone (vaulted ceiling).
So TrulliPesto is ideal for couple(s) and/or families or friends.
In addition, TrulliPesto boasts separate dining, kitchette and lounge areas. . . each also beneath its own trulli cone.
All rooms have been simply but stylishly decorated to complement, not overpower, the architectural heritage and simplicity of the trulli architecture itself. . . exactly as truly great pesto’s complement fine homemade pasta dishes.
TrulliPesto’s private pool measures 8m X 4m. Sun loungers, outdoor seating (and umbrella) and pool towels are provided.
For early Spring (wild flowers) and late Autumn (olive harvest), TrulliPesto is centrally heated (inclusive or rates quoted) for maximum comfort should the night turn chilly.
All windows are fitted with screens.
Our trulli is located in the beautiful countryside outside of Ostuni . . . with several local Masseria offering freshly grown/organic produce, farm goods and in some cases, restaurants . . . yet, you will be ideally located for convenient access (10-15 min by car) to the beautiful Puglian hilltop towns of Ostuni, Cisternino, Martina Franca and Ceglie Messapica . . . each with its own unique character – and type of mozzarella!
Ostuni's beaches are only minutes’ drive away.
Further afield, excursions to UNESCO World Heritage sites such as Alberobello (35 min) and Matera – a ‘must’ in our opinion – (1 hr 45 min), as well as the beautiful baroque city of Lecce (1hr 20 min) or Otranto (1 hour 45min) or Gallipoli (1 hour 30 min)
Whether your holiday plans include simply total rest and relaxation or, rather packing in as much sightseeing as possible, TrulliPesto will flavour and complement your holiday, and provide just the right combinatio of ingredients for the perfect accompaniment for your visit to Puglia.
