Trullo Harmony has been lovingly restored into a beautiful holiday home. The luxurious salt water swimming pool has been designed with a tasteful and convenient beach-style entry, so you can gently glide into the waters for a refreshing swim or splash about in the shallow waters. The lovely gazebo overlooks the pool and the trullo and makes a perfect spot for al fresco dining, shaded from the Mediterranean sun.
The trullo itself consists of 3 bedrooms, one double with its own 'trullo style' bathroom next door with shower; a further double and a twin bedroom which share a shower room. The charming kitchen has been decorated with colourful tiles from the Sorrento region, giving it a bright, summery feel. Alongside the characteristic stone fireplace is a wooden dining table, seating up to six people. The living area tastefully combines the exposed stone work of the original trullo with soft comfortable furnishings and a 32” flat screen TV. From here patio doors lead directly out to the swimming pool and gazebo.
Trullo Harmony is set on a gentle hillside in the Cisternino area and offers lovely views of the surrounding countryside. The location is completely secluded and peaceful and is accessed via a winding country road and private, electric gates. The property also has a utility room with washing machine, central heating and a shaded parking area. As the name suggests, Trullo Harmony is the perfect place to spend a relaxing week in the sunshine of southern Italy.

Puglia is often called the "Garden of Italy" or the "Bread basket of Italy" as the region produces much of the Olive Oil and Wheat used in the country. Puglia is also now becoming recognised as a producer of fine wines. It has the longest coastline in Italy and being so far south has the greater number of hours of sunshine in Italy giving the tourist season that little bit extra.
Cisternino is a beautiful hilltop town, surrounded by endless plains of olive groves. The town has a picturesque historical centre, completely closed-off to cars, making it perfect for strolling around and exploring. The buildings are characterised by external stone staircases that connect the various floors of each house, typical of the 16th and 17th century architecture in this area. Wandering through the alleyways, you will come across the beautiful clock tower in the main square, several stunning churches and the remains of the Norman tower, Porta Grande that once marked the entrance to the town.
Cisternino is particularly famous for the excellent steak available in a variety of rustic “Osteria” (simple restaurants serving home-cooked food). In some, it is even traditional to select your steak before it is cooked. Since Puglia offers a fabulous selection of full-bodied red wines, such as the Primitivo and Salice Salentino, there is a no shortage of good vintages to accompany these fine dishes.
