Guestbook comments from the owner

Jerome was most helpful in providing information about the property and area prior to my visit. Francesco, the caretaker in Puglia could not have been more helpful. Our flight was delayed by 2 hours so we arrived later than expected but he came out to let us in and show us around without complaint. A particular example of his diligence was when one of the group set off the alarm in error - all our mobiles were switched off and he tried to contact us to check we were all right and on not being able to get through came to the property to check in person. The property is perfectly situated as a centre for exploring this beautiful and interesting region of Italy. The swimming pool was wonderful and when illuminated at night quite breathtakingly beautiful. The kitchen was extremely well equipped and although we did not use them there was also a most efficient looking barbeque and a pizza oven with fuel all ready for use. I cannot fault it.

The pool has underwater lighting and the surrounding area is beautifully lit under the olive trees and on the deck at night, permitting you to enjoy the warm evenings for as long as you like. A farm just across the way provides the freshest milk, eggs, mozzarella, cheeses and (sometimes) very free range chickens. Lovely friendly people. Extremely good food and wine. Ceglie is known as 'cité d'arte et gastronomie' and lives up to its name: its whitewashed medieval historical centre has some of the best restaurants around; it boasts 2 musical conservatories, coming into their own in the frequent festivals. Traditional Puglian cooking can also be arranged on site. Our representatives, Francesco and Maria, speak fluent English French and Italian and will ensure you feel at home. Diving in crystal clear waters. Easy access to golf & horse riding. Good trekking & biking country. A guide is offered with all bookings. 2 new mountain bikes are available in the house for guest

Enjoyed the most laid back holiday house

  • 4 of 5

It was the second time we stayed at Adeles trullo. Having enjoyed it so much the first time, we rebooked early this year.

The description is very accurate. What one cannot explain is the total relaxed atmosphere, from the moment of arrival. It's the whole layout of the property,the furnishings, the fully equipped kitchen and the many homely items that make you feel at home at once. A very big bonus is the large swimming pool with salted water, which is much nicer than water with chloride. With 22-23 degrees the water temperature is very nicely cooling when it is hot.

The property is very big and full of fruits and nuts: nice to explore the garden and find all these treasures, which you may pick and eat.

Francesco and Maria take good care of the property and are very nice people. Very helpful too. As this time we had to visit a doctor, Francesco was able to let it be dealt with very quickly as he accompanied us to the doctor.

We flew to Bari, from there it is a one and half hour drive to the house.

Very nice and truly Italian are the local markets in Martina France and Locorotondo. in September there are hardly any foreigners, so we enjoyed being surrounded by the Italian chit chat. Not to forget the excellent cappucinos in the small coffee bars.

In the villages one is forced to dig up all the Italian words you very learned, because hardly anyone speaks English.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely thoughts. We agree it is hard to convey the sense of peace, space and relaxation - and Francesco & Maria are pure gold. We very much hope to see you again.

una gradevolissima vacanza

  • 5 of 5

La proprietà è adeguatamente isolata in mezzo alla campagna messapica, circondata da alberi da frutto e da ulivi. a settembre era tempo di fichi e di uva, che abbiamo potuto raccogliere abbondanti e buonissimi. La piscina è davvero bella e di dimensioni generose, perfettamente adatta per una vacana con bambini.

La cucina è molto ben attrezzata. Altre caratteristiche come il forno a legna, il pergolato, le sdraio, rendono davvero avvolgente il soggiorno, e si può diventare così pigri da passare intere giornate a casa.

Ceglie è un paesetto ancora autentico, non basato sulla vendita di paccottiglie ai turisti, quindi molto verace.

This charming secluded Trullo is set in three acres of gated grounds overlooking the beautiful Vallee D'Itria. Sweeping countryside views give a real feeling of privacy and tranquility despite being only 4km from the ancient centre of Ceglie Messapica. The grounds are planted with characteristic gnarled

old olive, fig, walnut & almond. Palm trees, Cyprus, sweet smelling mimosa, pomegranates, prickly pear and fruit of all kinds add to its charm. It is strategically placed to access the glorious beaches of both the Adriatic and Ionic seas, and to visit the entrancing old towns of Ostuni, Cisternino, Locorotondo and Martina Franca, Alberobello (the Trulli town), Castellana Grotto and Lecce ('the Florence of the South').

The private 14m x7.5m salt-water pool overlooks the valley. It is surrounded by a large cool-stone terrace with loungers & hammocks. A spacious wooden deck overlooks the pool for comfortable al fresco lounging & dining. 2015 note: a new spacious covered veranda now provides more covered outdoor dining and loinge
