Trullo | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 7
White Trullo, built in 1600 and completely renovated in 2009, is placed on the wonderful Salento countryside only 11 Km far from wonderful Ostuni (Also known as "The White City") and less than 30 Km far from Brindisi international airport. Its strategic position (Practically between Ionio and Adriatic Seas) allows everybody to always pick the best choice depending on which direction wind is coming from. Anyway, its wonderful pool, will always be a great choice for users (Especially during very warm august days). White trullo, thanks to its 12000 mq private field, full of olive trees, is particularly indicated for all who wants to disconnect from cahotic lifestyles and relax surrounded only by pure nature sounds.
Il Trullo Bianco, risalente al 1600 e completamente restaurato ed ampliato nel 2009, si trova immerso nelle splendide campagne dell'alto Salento a soli 11 Km da Ostuni ed a meno di 30 Km dall'aeroporto internazionale di Brindisi. La sua posizione strategica (Quasi a metà strada tra i due mari) permette di godere sempre delle migliori condizioni in funzione del vento: chi è già stato in Salento (Sole, mare e vento) lo sa: se soffia la tramontana si va al mar Ionio e se soffia lo scirocco, si sceglie l'Adriatico. La grande piscina di cui è dotato, ad ogni modo, costituirà sempre una opzione ideale (Soprattutto nelle afose giornate di agosto). Il trullo bianco, grazie ai suoi 12000 mq di terreno privato, coltivato ad olivi, è particolarmente indicato per chi voglia staccare compleramente dalla vita quotidiana e rilassarsi circondato dai suoni della natura.

About this location
The Puglia region
Situated at the south-eastern tip of the Italian peninsula, Apulia covers over 19,000 square kilometers (7,336 sq mi) in succession of broad plains and low-lying hills. The central area of the region is occupied by the Murge, a vast karst plateau and Itria Valley. The only mountainous areas, the Gargano promontory and the Monti Dauni, do not exceed 1,150 m (3,800 ft) and are to be found in the north of Apulia, which is the least mountainous region in Italy.
Apulia is a very dry region. Its few rivers are torrential and are to be found on the in southern Murge, where is the Canale Reale, on Tarantine, where is the Geleso river, and on the Tavoliere delle Puglie a tableland at the foot of the Gargano promontory that is one of the largest and agriculturally most productive plains in Italy. Elsewhere, rainwater permeates the limestone bedrock to form underground watercourses that resurface near the coast. Groundwater is therefore abundant, and there are many caves and sinkholes. The caves at Castellana Grotte are particularly spectacular.
Little bit of history....
Castel del Monte, built by the Holy Roman Emperor Frederick II between 1240 and 1250 in Andria
The medieval town Ostuni
Ancient temple in Canosa di Puglia
Apulia is one of the richest archaeological regions in Italy. It was first colonized by Mycenaean Greeks. At the 8th century BC, the Ancient Greeks expanded until reaching the area of Taranto and Salento in Magna Graecia. In the 5th and 4th centuries BC, the Greek settlement at Taras produced a distinctive style of pottery (Apulian vase painting).
Apulia was an important area for the ancient Romans, who conquered it during the course of wars against the Samnites and against Pyrrhus in the 4th and 3rd centuries BC but also suffered a crushing defeat here in the battle of Cannae against Hannibal. However, after the Carthaginians left the region, the Romans captured the ports of Brindisi and Taranto, and established dominion over the region. During the Imperial age Apulia was a flourishing area for production of grain and oil, becoming the most important exporter to the Eastern provinces.
The role that the cuisine plays in Puglia and Southern Italy's culture is proven by the fact that the Mediterranean cuisine received an Unesco heritage award. Having warm and sunny weather most of the year and being surrounded by the sea, Puglia has traditionally been a region with excellent production in terms of wines, extra virgin olive oil, fruit, vegetables, wheat, and seafood.
San Michele Salentino
Messapia was the ancient name of a region of Italy largely corresponding to modern Salento. It was inhabited chiefly by the Messapii in classical times. Pokorny derives the toponym from PIE *medhyo-, "middle" and PIE *ap-, "water" (Mess-apia, "amid waters"; Note: the asterisk before a word indicates that it is a hypothetical construction, not an attested form). Pokorny compares the toponym Messapia to another ancient Italic toponym, Salapia, "salt water", a city in Apulia.
A number of places, the coasts above all, are remarkable landscapes and environments, among them the Alimini Lakes, on the Adriatic coast, and Porto Selvaggio, on the Ionic coast.
The soil is very fertile: some of the finest olive trees and grapes grow here, and their products are exported worldwide.
Salento's coasts are varied, and can be sandy or rocky, but all boast pristine beaches and crystal-clear waters. Some of the most renowned locations in Salento for summer holidays (from May/June to September) are: Ostuni, Casalabate, Ceglie Messapica, Oria, Ugento, Manduria, Porto Cesareo, Gallipoli, Torre dell'Orso, Otranto, Santa Maria di Leuca, Lizzano, Pulsano, Santa Cesarea Terme.
Salento is a peaceful land full of history and traditions whose strong points are its natural and architectural beauties, hospitality, atmosphere, and of course sea and its coast.
