The trulli house named Melograno has still the authentic charm of the old country houses and is perfect to sleep 4/6 people.
Formed by three cones, the middle one is the highest and biggest one and the other two are smaller; in one of them there’s a queen bed (in the same position as it was originally) and in the other one there’s a fire place; from here, going three steps down there’s a well furnished kitchenette that looks out on a large patio with cabana and grill; two bedrooms (one with a queen bed and the other one with bunk beds), a bathroom with shower and bidet.
The swimming pool is shared with the occupants of the "Lamia".
Our trulli houses were built in about 1780. Originally they were the country houses of the farmers who used them also as tool sheds and barns for the cattle. They have been renovated in accordance with the traditional rules; local builders called ‘trullari’ have worked to recreate the original structure. The trulli houses are situated close the town of Ceglie Messapica. The landscape that surrounds the trulli houses is a rare beauty: from here you can admire a green valley of olive-trees. The wonderful geographical position makes this place the perfect starting-point for those who want to do some trekking or make relaxing naturalistic, cultural or enogastronomical trips. The Adriatic Coast and its wonderful beaches are only 11 miles away.
Wherever you are in Puglia, you are never far from the sea. The nearest beach (Torre Canne) is less than 25 minutes drive from Ceglie Messapica.

Puglia runs from the spur to the heel of the Italian "boot". It is a land of rich red earth, ancient olive groves and unspoilt coastlines. The area produces wonderful fruit, vegetables, olive oil, pasta and an excellent selection of high quality DOC wines, all readily available. Dining out is much cheaper than in the UK and there are plenty of opportunities to sample the local specialities. Martina Franca and Ostuni are ideal towns for shopping! An hour away is the city of Lecce, known as "the Florence of the South" and famous for it's Baroque architecture.
