we do not ask fees for electricity, water and clean so we ask you not to consume electricity (air conditioning, lights) and water if not necessary.
What a wonderful holiday! Our only criticism is that we stayed too short! First the communication with Paolo and his mother went very smoothly. Anna met us on arrival with a friendly smile and warm hospitality, we were urged to pick anything from their garden. The day we left Vincenzo and Anna met us to say goodbye, and after hearing my father makes his own Limonocello, Vincenzo ran into the garden returning with a big bag of organic lemons. Truly wonderful people! The Trullo is very cute, an original old building with a cozy fireplace and two sleeping areas-everything is open so I won't call them rooms, surrounded by olive trees and vegetable gardens. Its all very picturesque. We went in April which was very cold, so we would recommend others to go between May and September when the Italian sun is at its best. The city nearby, Ceglie Messapica, is nice to go for dinner, there is an excellent restaurant named Cibus. Puglia is a culinary delight filled with warm people and gorgeous ocean views. Trullo Casedd is a house straight out of a fairytale that will make your stay in Puglia more authentic. We hope to stay again someday! Thank you Paolo and your beautiful family x
Had a fantastic stay! Directions were perfect and Paolo was very accommodating to ensure we were greeted by his mother, Anna, upon arrival. She already had a fire going and had plenty of wood prepared to last us through both nights. The hammock and grassy area were a huge plus, especially for our two boys (1 & 3 yr old). There is also a restaurant directly across the street (opened at 6pm - not sure if that is the norm though), which we really enjoyed since everything was local and fresh. Highly recommend this trullo for a memorable experience!
Anna& Vincenzo and their family represent all the good values one would wish from an Airbnb experience. They displayed wonderful enthusiasm for their guests, their home and their region. They shared fig jam, olive oil and wine from their farm upon our arrival and we had a fine meal with the family that they prepared. We specifically came to experience the rural culture of Valle d' Itria and this trullo was the perfect place to have as homebase. Our daughter and my mother in law host places on Airbnb, so we're interested in how well others host; we were not disappointed in any way. As a builder, I'm interested in vernacular architecture and we enjoyed staying in an old trullo, the better to see how they were originally constructed and how the rainwater systems worked.
The Trullo was unique and a great way to experience farm life in Puglia in a different time. Having an open fire was great for warmth and also the calm one gets from sitting and watching the wood burn. The location is beautiful being in the middle of a vineyard, olive grove and vegetable plot in the countryside. The location is also excellent for visiting other places of interest and easy to return to after a days driving. The hosts were very kind and generous with the firewood and help in finding local food although winter is probably not the best time to "discover" local restaurants as some close in winter. However, we considered our time in Ceglie Messapica to be a delightful Pugliesi experience!
Paolo [and his family] are excellent hosts. They responded quickly to our queries prior to the trip. We were met by Ana [Paolo’s mother] on arrival and she gave a very comprehensive briefing on the Trulli and the local area, albeit in Italian. We were able to make a reasonable translation of her comments/advice using our cell phone translator. The house was stocked with immediate breakfast provisions fresh fruit etc and the family arrived with a four course meal for two on our second night. All very tasty and totally unexpected.
The Trulli house is on a working farm [olives, grapes,and a host of other produce], It is on a side road off SS581 about 2.5 kms outside Ceglie Messapico. Paolo provided excellent instructions and photos to enable us to arrive without any difficulty. The Airbnb photos are accurate and the Trulli house is not only a pleasure to stay in but provides a unique country experience, not to be missed. The house comprises a central living space with alcoves off for bedrooms , inside kitchen large open fire place and separate modern (website hidden) is done in a separate kitchen accessed from outside to save from having cooking smells inside the house. The bathroom has a large window for natural light and ventilation. The house is extremely secure. Cooling is easily achieved by opening windows [available in all rooms] and for the cooler part of the year, there are wall mounted heaters and air conditioners.
The house is well equipped for self catering and offers both initial cooking [oven and gas top cookers] and reheat [microwave] the furnishings and bed are comfortable. The apartment was spotlessly clean on our arrival.
There are many excellent restaurants in the area; indeed, this is one of the key attractions of the town for both tourists and locals alike. [We can recommend Al Fornello da Ricci on Via Montevicolo– a one star Michelin which has very reasonable prices].
Two mountain bikes are provided [free of charge] but access to a vehicle would be a definite advantage if one wishes to venture beyond the town. The railway station is on the near side of the town if one wishes to use that means of transport to visit the larger centres on the coast [Bari, Brindisi, Taranto or even Lecce to the south.]
Overall, seven night stay in Ceglie Messapico was most enjoyable and the setting was magical. Paolo’s Trulli house provided us with a good base for exploring northern Puglia. Thank you, Paolo and family for making our stay in Ceglie so enjoyable.
We are a family of five and stayed two nights at the trullo. Paolo's mother and sister were very welcoming and we enjoyed it very much to live in the trullo. We felt like in a small castle in a fairy tale. Although the trullo is quite small we had everything we needed. Especially the garden is very beautiful and charming. The big kids loved to go around the area that is surrounded by olive trees (two bikes were provided). The small one loved to play at the small well and to sit on the hammock. We would like to come back to this romantic spot.
