a trullo holiday villa with pool to rent

    This trullo with private, 10m swimming pool has been restored to provide a relaxing holiday villa in Puglia. The trullo has 2 bedrooms, both with en suite bathrooms. Also now installed is free wifi. Located near the delightful town of Ceglie Messapica, the setting of this holiday villa in Puglia is tranquil. If you like to relax by the pool, with a glass of local vino and watch the swallows circle and dive in to the pool... this is for you. It is perfect for a couple, a group of 4 or a small family. The restoration of the trullo has left many of the original features including the pizza oven that holds pride of place in the kitchen. You are also close to the sea with the Adriatic coast only 25 minutes away.

      Testimonials

        We enjoyed a lovely week in this delightful traditional trullo, tucked away in the peaceful Puglian countryside, yet close to some wonderful historic towns. The kitchen was well equipped to self-cater, although there were plenty of reasonable restaurants in the nearby towns to sample local delicacies. We particularly liked Ceglie Messapica, only 10 minutes by car and full of atmosphere in the evening.
        We especially enjoyed the pool, bordered by lavendar alive with butterflies and surrounded by terraces with shade as well as sun.
        Staying at Trullo Adagio was a truly novel, relaxing and unforgettable experience! Cath Papworth, 2013

        We had a really good week at Trullo Adagio with our two teenagers. Staying in a trullo was great fun and having the pool, lots of books to read and a well-equipped kitchen meant that we ended up doing much less sightseeing and far more relaxing than we’d intended. Have never seen such a variety of beautiful butterflies!
        Would really recommend this trullo to anyone who is looking for a place to stay in Puglia. We had a lovely week. Kate Brian, UK.

        Hi Andrew, I thought I’d drop you a line to say we had a really lovely time at Trullo Adagio. So much so that we’ve told all our friends about it and are seriously considering booking again for next year! Enrica, 2010

        Just wanted to let you know that we had a great time.
 Everything with the trullo was wonderful – we loved it.
 Richard and Alison were great too – never intrusive but we always felt we could go to them if we needed any advice or information.
        
Ros, Buxton, 2010.

        It was a great holiday, we loved the place (trulli / countryside / food / wine) and the weather was perfect.
Can understand your love for the place and the peace and tranquility it provides.
        Elaine, Maidenhead, 2011.

        From our perspective, everything worked out really well last week.
 Good food, great weather, totally relaxing setting. If anything, our grand plans for exploring were derailed by the tranquil nature of the trullo.
        Jon, Solihull, 2010.
