Trullo Bellissimo is located in the commune of Ostuni in the region of Puglia on the ‘heel’ of Italy, within easy driving distance of the sea (18km), Brindisi airport (45km) and Bari airport (90km). The stunning medieval hill towns of Ostuni (8km), Cisternino (15km), Martina Franca (22km), Ceglie Messapica (9km) and Locorondo (23km), offer a variety of ancient architecture, including dry-stone trulli, and restaurants.
Puglia and neighbouring Basilicata, boast six UNESCO World Heritage sights, the best beaches in Italy (six of them Blue Flag) and over 250 lidos. Puglia is now commonly referred to as the “New Tuscany” or the “Jewel of Italy”.
Secluded in its own grounds, out trulli is only five minutes drive from Ostuni , the ‘White City’(La Citta Bianca), meeting place of Greeks, Saracens, Knights. A labyrinth of alleys and ancient homes facing to sea, perched on white walls, surveying the Mediterranean. It brought travelers and marauders alike, from Venice to Tangiers.
A staging post for Crusaders marching to the Holy Land, a region of hill forts, Byzantine cathedrals, a land of splendid passion and sad lament, its history is as diverse as the countenance of its inhabitants.
On a hill, Ostuni surveys the land of the trulli.
