The Puglia/Molise region
In Apulia ,in southeastern Italy, farming is the chief occupation. Farm products include olives, grapes, cereals, almonds, figs, tobacco and livestock.One of the richest in Italy for archeological findings, the region was settled from the 1st millennium BC by several Illyric and Italic peoples. Later, the Greeks expanded until reaching the area of Taranto and the Salento. Apulia is an enormous environmental treasure, in surface like in the underground. (unforgettable the Castellana underground caves). Apulia is famous all over the world for the taste and the quality of its typical cuisine.
The trullo is located half a way between Ionic and Adriatic Sea (approx. 25 km from each side), surrounded by beautiful small towns like Grottaglie, well-known for its ceramic handicrafts (11 km), Martina Franca, also called ‘the small Lecce’, with its beautiful baroque old palaces and churches and a big golf club nearby (12 km), Ostuni, the ‘white town’ (17 km), Cisternino, with its traditional street butcheries (15 km), Alberobello, wellknown for its 'trulli' constructions (aprx 30 km), the nice village of Locorotondo (20 km), Fasano and its "Zoosafari": a safari park and funfair for younger visitors, and Taranto, the big harbour, with its historical buildings, seafood restaurants, surrounded by archaeological ‘messapic’ sites.
Many religious and folk music festivals ( like "Notte della Taranta" festival in August ) take place in the region in summer time.

"Beautiful peaceful trullo"
This fantastic trullo is in a wonderful location (car essential) with easy driving access to all of the main towns in this area - the local town, Ceglie Messapica, was our favourite and the Adriatic sea is about 40 mins away, the Med about an hour. The trullo is very simply but very stylishly decorated, with everything you need. There is fantastic outside space: the kids loved picking figs and almonds from the orchard, while the adults enjoyed lazing on the hammock. The bedroom arrangement means that the house might be more suited to families as there is little privacy for the two double rooms (one room has no door while the other double bed is in an open passageway from which the other two bedrooms and the lounge lead off): the third bedroom has twin beds and a door. However, this was not a problem for our stay (2 adults, 2 children). There is a road outside the trullo but it has little traffic and the place is very very peaceful, with great star gazing to be done! The owner was very welcoming and helpful, and we would highly recommend this house.
