About the property

Traditional Trullo, close to Ceglie Messapica. Peaceful countryside location.

Experience authentic Italian living, trullo style, in this traditional stone-built hideaway, ideal for couples or small families.

Accessed up a private driveway, lined with fruit trees, the trullo sits in its own, secluded ground with flowers and fruit trees all around and a large terrace to the front.

The trullo is well equipped inside with a fridge freezer, hob, microwave oven, TV for watching DVDs, wifi and a selection of books. The bedroom has a king sized bed and there is a dining table and chairs in the main living area, and a comfortable seating area in the cosy alcove.

The outside area has everything you could want for outdoor living in the Italian sunshine with a large stone BBQ for cooking the meat or fresh fish from the market – a perfect complement to the colourful Mediterranean vegetables and salads. Outside the kitchen in a shaded pergola with table and chairs to complete your al fresco dining experience.

The attractive 3.5m x 3.5m wooden, above-ground pool is perfect for cooling off after sunning yourself on the sun loungers with a glass of something cold to drink.

Trullo Mariuccia is centrally located so is the ideal base for exploring the towns of the Itria Valley; Alberobello, Ostuni, Martina Franca etc or for visiting the Adriatic and Ionian beaches. Of course, for those who just want to relax away from the stress of city living, Trullo Mariuccia is also perfect for just chilling out with some local wine in the sunshine in the heart of the Puglia countryside.

*NEW FOR 2017* The adjacent Annex is also available to rent to cater for you if you have a large group or families. This gives you one additional bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and seating area. The Annex is only available to rent an addition to the Trullo and will not be rented separately.

About Alison or Richard

My name is Luisa and Trullo Mariuccia has been in my family for generations and I have many happy memories of the trullo where we would spend long Sunday afternoons working our way through the seemly endless delicious food provided by various members of my family.

Born and raised in Ceglie, my children have now flown the nest and live in London and Milan but my heart still remains in the South of Italy and Ceglie in particular.

Peaceful and pretty

  • 5 of 5

The Trullo was in a perfect and peaceful location! The bedroom and kitchen were compact but everything you would need for a couple! Luisa, the owner was just delightful, bringing us breakfast when she cleaned the pool, extra towels and showed us how to recognise the perfect fig! The area is beautiful and still very Italian!! We will definitely recommend it and will be back!

Lovely, secluded trullo in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

This trullo is ideal for a couple, especially if you are seeking a quiet location with good access to the principal attractions of the area - Martina Franca, Locorotondo, Alberobello and Cisternino are all within a short drive. The trullo is well equipped with a decent, smallish, kitchen and a large lounge area. The bedroom is compact but charming. Everything was clean and well presented. There is plenty of external space and a decent sized pool. Luisa is a charming host (assisted by Alison who helped out when we reached the limit of our Italian vocabulary) who went out of her way to ensure we had everything we needed. We would thoroughly recommend this trullo as a place to stay and would revisit it ourselves.

Beautiful property, secluded location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 2 weeks, the weather was superb, the pool was refreshing and the peace and quiet was exactly what we were looking for. If you want a totally relaxing, peaceful holiday then thats exactly what you get. The property itself is well maintained with a large fridge and small freezer, gas hob and a BBQ, there is a small electric oven but we didnt use it. There are extensive grounds and we had fresh beautiful pears and figs right off the trees. Unforunately the peaches and olives weren't ready yet. Ceglie itself is a beautiful small town with hardly ant tourists, some very nice restaurants and a very lively main square for the 'passeggiata'

relaxing, sightseeing holiday

  • 5 of 5

Very pretty, sweet little trullo, ideal for a couple. Equipped with everything needed for a holiday stay. Luisa, the owner was very friendly and provided lovely welcome pack, including wonderful local wine. There are good sunny areas to sit and also much needed shady area for eating. It is a lovely countryside location with nearby Ceglie for plenty of restaurants and a supermarket. The old part of Ostuni is well worth a visit along with, of course, Alberobello.

Nearest Airport
40 Kilometres
Car: necessary


The many beaches and coves of the Adriatic are around 30 minutes away by car. As the trullo has a convenient central location, the long, flatter beaches of the Ionian coast can also be reached in just under an hour.


We are lucky to have two airports within easy reach - Brindisi at 40 minutes away and Bari at 1 hour 20 minutes away. Some guests also fly into Naples which is around three and a half hours away.

As the trullo is in the heart of the countryside, a car is essential for getting around.


Trullo Mariuccia is in the ideal location for exploring the towns of the Itria Valley - Martina Franca, Alberobello, Ostuni, Cisternino etc.

The local town, Ceglie Messapica, is just over five minutes drive away and has everything you could want including supermarkets, local shops, a weekly market and many excellent restaurants.
