Outside

Trullo Bellissimo is a luxury self catering holiday trulli, with its own producing olive grove.  The exterior area has been designed to offer complete privacy, surrounded by beautiful gardens with a large swimming pool and two terraces for your complete relaxation and enjoyment.

Watch the sun go down behind the ancient hilltop town of Cisternino, whilst enjoying a glass of your favourite Puglian wine. Wander past the swimming pool to the dining terrace, to the custom built BBQ, to prepare your evening meal at the outside kitchen area, complemented by our own extra virgin olive oil, fresh herbs, tomatoes, grapes and other produce from the land.

Relax at the 3 metre marble table to enjoy your own culinary delights whilst planning your next trip to the local pristine beaches or a visit to any of the stunning ancient towns and monuments, that are just a short drive away.

Better still, with all of the facilities that Trullo Bellissimo has to offer, simply plan a day around the pool and top up your suntan, then retire to the shade of the terraces when the sun is just too hot, to read your favourite book, surf the net or e-mail your friends and family. Our trulli is just waiting to provide that very special holiday experience you so richly deserve.

Inside

Whilst the trulli has numerous outside spaces for you to enjoy and relax in, the interior of the trulli provides a cool and calm oasis. Once inside, ancient stone arches and conical ceilings link the old with the new. The modern fully equipped kitchen sits adjacent to the open plan dining and living area which has digital TV, DVD player, ipod docking station and surround sound  system. Full central heating is enhanced with a wood burning stove, ideal for those autumnal evenings.

A stone archway leads you into the lamia bedroom with its magnificent canopied four poster mahogany bed. A small vestibule links into an en suite shower room decorated in vibrant green Bizazza mosaic tiles.

On the other side of the dining area you step straight into a scene from the ‘Arabian Nights” with the exotic ethnic room complete with tapestries and daybed. Continue this Eastern journey into the magical trullo bedroom where the king sized bed languishes under its own dreamy had made canopy tent. Relax in this very special space complete with furnishings from the souk.

This is probably the most individually designed holiday home that you could wish to stay in, as consistently confirmed in our many guest reviews. There can be few more stunning residences in Puglia.

Virtual Tour

Take a few minutes to come with us on a virtual video tour of our trulli. You’ve read about the accommodation and seen the photographs, but we hope that this short video will help you to experience the unique style of our beautifully renovated, authentic, Puglian trullo. Not only the interior, but this short film presents you with a sense of the space that we offer, from the three acres of olive and fruit orchard to the formal gardens, stunning terraces and external facilities. Only ten minutes drive from Ostuni, can you believe all this privacy and quiet is possible. Whether your goal is simply to luxuriate in the sunshine and peace, giving thought to only the next barbecue or glass of prosecco, or whether you seek adventure and travel and the busy yet pristine beaches of the Adriatic, we think that you will find all your hearts desire for a perfect vacation.

Olive Harvest

Need cheering up, why not take a short journey with six total incompetents who by misadventure and hard work manage in two short weeks to hand pick over two tonnes of olives for pressing, and a further 100 kilos for curing. You may think this short film a farce, and at many times it was, yet I prefer to think of ourselves as ‘gifted amateurs’. November is a wonderful time to visit the south when the countryside is a positive hive of activity. Renault 4′s queue, laden to the gunnels to drop off their precious cargo of olives, and everybody works a good 16 hour day before sitting down to eat a seven course supper. And the oil – the beautiful, miasmic quality of freshly pressed oil, redolent of herb, leaf and grass fills the senses, and makes it all SO worthwhile.
