Overview

About the property

3 bedrooms 2 bathrooms and pool with external kitchen, dining & sitting areas

Trullo Tramonto has been beautifully redesigned and restored by a Milanese architect to an exceptionally high standard and sits on a hillside in a quiet countryside location.

The house is known for its beautiful views and sunsets (tramonto being Italian for sunset).

The gorgeous 13 metre infinity-edged swimming pool with shallow beach area gives the opportunity to cool off whilst enjoying the views.

The trullo has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms one of which is ensuite.

In addition to the open plan living/dining area and the well equipped marble topped adjoining kitchen, the trullo has an internal 'cave room' providing an additional cool living space.

Externally there is a shaded sitting area (ideally situated to enjoy the amazing sunsets over Martina Franca and Locorotondo) a kitchen/dining area, with a stunning stone dining table, sink and BBQ.

The well established garden has many fruit trees including cherry, apricot, plum, peach, apple, fig, pomegranate, sharon fruit, mulberry, olive and almond and a well stocked herb garden.

About Tracy

We live in the UK and have 2 teenage daughters. My husbands family are originally from Bari and he enjoyed many family holidays there when he was growing up. When we were first married we enjoyed vacations in Italy but once the girls were born decided to buy a place ourselves. We lived here for a couple of years, the girls went to school in Martina Franca and now speak Italian fluently. We enjoy travelling, cooking and eating out but love swimming, walking and running too! When we lived here we grew our own artichokes, fennel, tomatoes and salads - the herb garden is still thriving. I welcome enquiries and enjoy speaking to guests and helping them plan their vacation.

Why Tracy chose Ostuni

Our Trullo has beautiful panoramic views and is in a great location, quiet and off the beaten track. However, we are just a few minutes drive from Martina Franca, Cisternino, Ceglia Messapica and Locorotondo - three of these lovely hill towns we can see from our house! Ostuni and Alberobello aren't too far either.

We have lots of comments from guests at how homely and comfortable it is. We enjoy sharing our favourite places to visit and our latest restaurant finds. We love it here and want our guests to love it too!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We must admit to a feeling of sadness as we prepare for our departure to Rome. We have had a wonderful honeymoon in Trullo Tramonto with a perfect balance of exciting food, vivid sunsets and relaxing conversations beside the pool; all this amongst the heady aroma of a Mediterranean herb garden and idyllic Trullo!

We used a few sprigs of basil on our first evening and we took the liberty of planting some more! We hope they thrive!

We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to you for sharing your home with us. The collection of guides, cook books and personal recommendations makes this place even more enchanting. Thanks also for leaving us lunch for our arrival, it was lovely!

We wouldn't hesitate in giving you 5 stars!

With our very best wishes ,

Stunning villa

  • 5 of 5

Relaxing 2 weeks at this stunning villa. Pool, outside area and outlook exceeded all expectations. Wonderful situ, with great sightseeing and restaurants close by as well as offroad cycling right behind property (aqueduct trail).

Beautiful, tranquil, relaxing Trullo

  • 5 of 5

We loved every moment in this beautiful home. The trullo was comfortable, well kitted out and everything that we needed. The outside area was the gem of this property. The infinity pool looking out over the view was exceptional, the seating area and outside kitchen was lovely (we spent two whole days just at the villa because it was so beautiful and relaxing).

Plenty of places to go and see and eat all within a short drive. Highlights for us were Martina Franca, Locorotondo, Matera and the Adriatic coast for lovely sandy beaches.

We were sad to leave at the end of our holiday and will definitely be back again.

Pretty Trullo and Perfect Pool

  • 5 of 5

Very rural holiday home with lovely views, great barbecue area, pool and outside seating. Equipped with everything you'd need. Appreciated the welcome pack as all the shops were closed when we arrived. The only slight problem being a very hard mattress in one of the bedrooms.

A beautiful part of Italy, very tranquil.

  • 5 of 5

What a great surprise it was to arrive at the Trullo, we didn’t know what to expect and we certainly weren’t disappointed! Our first impressions were that it was so peaceful and quiet, very clean, extremely well equipped with beautiful linens in the bedrooms, everything you could want in the kitchen, and we particularly loved the ‘Welcome Hamper’ and lovely toiletries, what a special touch!

When we contacted the owner, Tracy, she was very helpful and couldn’t have done enough to make our stay comfortable and hassle free. She had many suggestions about places to visit and where to eat and they all turned out to be just what we would have chosen ourselves. We would definitely return and would highly recommend it as a wonderful, relaxing yet exciting family holiday.

Owner's Response: It was a real pleasure helping you plan your holiday. The Aveda and Molton Brown toiletries are some of our favourites so I'm glad you enjoyed them. Thank you for such a lovely review I really appreciate it and look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

Fabulous relaxing break in Puglia

  • 5 of 5

The trullo was very well presented and fully fitted so that we were relaxing within minutes of arrival. The welcome basket was a lovely touch from the owner Tracy. We also loved the rosemary and lavender fragrance around the garden.

This was our second stay in Puglia and this time nestled between Martina Franca, Cisternino and Ostuni enabled great eating out and shopping excursions when not ensconced by the pool. Ice cream take away is recommended for sunset watching across the valley from the house - may be accompanied by something a little stronger to drink !

We will definitely be booking again.

Blissfully relaxing stay in late summer .....

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to the Trullo, the first time was 4 years ago in August, then 2 years ago in May and this year in September. We spent a blissfully relaxing week basking in the late summer sun. We were able to spend time outside enjoying the landscape and we even had a barbecue one day. Thank you Tracy for all your help and advice about places to visit and restaurant recommendations, you even suggested a very good hairdresser for us! Will definitely be booking again as we still have so much we want to do in this area.

Owner's Response: It's a real pleasure to share our favourite restaurants and places of interest. I do hope you had a chance to visit Grottaglie this time for the handmade ceramics and see the olive oil production and olive oil tasting in nearby Cisternino. Not forgetting Matera and Lecce - much easier in September when it's not so hot! The Aveda hair salon in Martina Franca was a great find!

With panoramic views of Martina Franca, Locorotondo & Cisternino, the trullo is set amongst olive and almond groves alongside the Itria Valley in Puglia, a World Heritage site.

The popular hill towns of Ostuni, Martina Franca, Cisternino & Ceglie Messapica are all within a short drive away and are full of wonderful restaurants, bars & shops including locally produced ceramics, baskets and jewellery. The “Florence of the South”, Lecce is just 1 hours drive offering stunning Baroque architecture.

Beaches on the Adriatic coast (both sandy or rocky) are less than half an hour drive, whilst the stunning sandy Ionian coast is just a little further towards the south.

Known as the “garden of Italy” Puglia is renowned for it's local produce supplying the rest of Italy with fruit & vegetables. Local meat from the countryside & fish on the coast is highly regarded not forgetting the rich red wines of Salento & Manduria and crisp white wines from Locorotondo.

Golf: There are 2 golf courses in the area; San Domenico Golf Course and Coccaro Golf Club close to the pretty fishing village of Savelletri, on the Adriatic coast.
