Beautiful large 3-bedrooms trulli complex with private swimming pool.

Trulli San Giovanni is a beautiful panoramic Trulli complex; ideal for families with small children because of the spectacular swimming pool (12x6 m) with beach effect.

Trulli San Giovanni is an original Apulian Trullo with private pool and immersed in the green countryside adjacent to the town of Ceglie Messapica.

This private holiday home has been renovated with great eye for preserving the original details and with the use of typical Apulian materials.

The construction and composition of the building are very typical for these ancient Trulli known for their uniqueness and particularity.

The Trullo lends itself perfectly for a stay during the hottest season of the year because it stays cool and fresh inside and it's location in the silent countryside together with it's incredible charm will give you an evocative sense of the past.

The property consists of a central body of Trulli and Lamia and a detached guesthouse with bedroom and en suite bathroom with a small outdoor patio at about 20 meters from the Trullo.

The main Trullo consists of a living room with fireplace and sitting area in typical white stone finished with comfortable cushions. From here you enter the bright and spacious kitchen with dining area and access to the pool and barbecue area.

Back to the living area and through an interior hallway, you enter the first double bedroom. The second bedroom consist of two single beds that can be joined if wanted and this room has direct access to the garden.

In between the two bedrooms is the first and largest bathroom with toilet, bidet, sink and large shower. The second bathroom in the Trulli consists of toilet, bidet and sink.

The third bedroom has also direct access to the garden and is located on the opposite side of the first one. This room is ideal for both children and adults, as the beds can be easily prepared as two singles or as one double bed.

The spacious garden surrounding the property is well maintained and offers privacy and tranquility. The olive trees and different fruit trees complete the Apulian atmosphere together with the lush vegetation.

One of the highlights of Trulli San Giovanni is the outdoor living and dining area. Under a characteristic wooden pergola, a memory of what in the past has been a traditional barnyard, is a white stone bench with cushions, tables and umbrellas which provide a pleasant outside environment in the shade.

The private swimming pool of 12x6 meter with peculiar beach effect slopes gently down to a maximum depth of about 1.6 meters thus being suitable also for small children! The pool is located at the back of the Trulli and offers a splendid view over the hills of Ceglie Messapica.

Trulli San Giovanni is the perfect location for those who are looking for authenticity and privacy!

The Puglia/Molise region

Puglia is an enchanting region, with something to offer all year round: natural beauty, history, ancient traditions, taste and spirituality.

Its geography is unique: a long coastline and level plains but also brief tracts of wild mountainside covered with thick forest. Fields of wheat and olive groves combine with orchards and rolling hills which contrast with dramatic cliffs and rocky slopes.

These same contrasts also apply to the history and culture.

Puglia is divided into Capitanata, Gargano, Terra di Bari, Murge, Valle d'Itria and Salento each a distinct area with a very different feel and each with their own history, culture and local cuisine.

Ceglie Messapica

The area of Ceglie Messapica is located between the Murge and the Upper Salento: its typical elements include trulli, farms, lamie (typical southern single room square dwellings), rupestrian churches, carsic caves, dolinas, specchie and paretoni (remains of city walls), dry-stone walls, olive groves, vineyards, maquis shrub, ancient oak trees, cattle pastures and arable land.

Numerous archaeological remains of the ancient Messapi civilization were found in Ceglie's area. It had four lines of walls, the inner one having a perimeter of 5 km. The external one had high fortifications known as specchie, which could be up to 20 m and 60 m in diameter.

"Great house"

Nice trulli, really close to Ceglia and Martina Franca. Only half an hour by car to the beach. Clean house with perfect kitchen. Two bedrooms (each 2 persons) and one room with couch for 2 more people to sleep. Please keep in mind that there is no airco in the bedrooms, only in the kitchen and there is no wifi.

Pool is nice and clean. Garden is superb with all the italian vegetables you can imagine, great for children to pick (and for yourself to eat).

The rental-organization is perfect and very helpfull with everything.
