My name is Mel Massey and I run And Relax. The ethos behind And Relax (and Trullo Fico) is that it is tiring and stressful researching, booking and preparing for holidays, so when you arrive, you just want to relax and recharge immediately. As fully equipped as possible, Trullo Fico has been designed and furnished with style, total relaxation and comfort in mind - sleeping in Egyptian cotton sheets and feather duvets on quality mattresses; soaking under sleek chrome power-showers; relaxing on outside sofas, hammock, sunbeds or deckchairs by the private pool; enjoying music outside and in; entertaining kids with the pool/jacuzzi, trampoline, table tennis table, DVD library and toys; a well-stocked welcome pack so you don't have to dash off to the supermarket. See you for yourself...

Why Owner chose Ostuni
We loved Puglia from the moment we set eyes on it, the amazing architecture, history, culture, charming people, wonderful food and wine. These elements, in a beautiful rustic setting dominated by olive trees and still that innate style Italy is famous for! The fact that tourism is low-key and less commercial is particularly appealing, especially in the peak tourist season. A search for the annual rude postcard for my brother drew a blank, something I was very pleased about! We fell in love with Trullo Fico for its history and location. It is a traditional, original stone Saracen Trullo with two newer lamia (vaulted rooms) attached either side. The simplicity of the materials belies the craftsmanship within the building. The stones have definitely got lots of stories to tell.

Everything I wanted from my first trip to Puglia
This was our first trip to Puglia and our first proper trip away with our new baby daughter. One of the reasons we chose to stay at Trullo Fico was how baby friendly everything appeared and it was true to that. I'll forever remember this as the place where I first went swimming with my daughter.
I'd like to say that we truly explored the surrounding countryside but the truth was that its was just too easy to sleep (I admit we had other family to look after the baby)! One highlight was visiting Ostuni (the white city) which seemed to be in a state of perpetual fanfare, do not miss the burrata, it is to die for.
Top Notch!! Gorgeous setting and decor.
A beautiful part of Italy and the most stunning holiday home. The decor is second to none, all mod cons, amazing bathrooms and bedrooms.
We had great weather and even with little ones we had a relaxing stay and some gorgeous meals out in the local town. We also went to the local market as all the fresh produce is so fresh and tasty. A must to visit….we will be going back!
Stylish with attention to detail
We came here on a girl's weekend and had a ball. The attention to detail in the property is what really makes it. The beds are really comfortable, the bedding is sumptuous, the rooms are beautifully dark and there is great quality surround sound to listen to music in the outside areas. It's also really stylishly furnished without being over- fussy, which means I would like to come back with the kids. (They'd love the trampoline in the grounds). There are lovely places to eat in the nearby towns too - a real magnet for foodies like us. We came back stuffed but very happy.
