A fantastic week in a beautiful place. Everything you would ever need for a fabulous week! Thank you Lucia for a wonderful stay!!
This place was a lovely find, it was very close to ceglie messapica and not far from the stunning hilltop medieval citadel of Ostuni. The days were spent lazing by the lovely pool with a covered seating area outside the trulli for lunch and a break from the Puglia sunshine. Evenings the trulli based in the countryside was within driving access of both the Ionian and the Adriatic seas with lots of beautiful towns to visit nearby.
Lucia and her team were a pleasure to deal with. We travelled here with 3 boys and it was perfection.
Our first visit to Puglia definitely not our last !
Beautiful well maintained and very clean Trulli - Owners very helpful and welcoming, well equipped, peaceful and private.
Great location to explore - rural but only 10 mins from town
Enjoyed the lovely pool surrounded by olive and fig trees with the scent of Rosemary, sage and thyme bushes.
My trip to the Trulli Elia was my first time visiting the beautiful region of Puglia. The property is enchanting, full of fruit and olive trees and surrounded in the typical stone walls that you will see all around the province. Though it feels peacefully remote, it is only a five minute drive into the center of Ceglie Messapica. A 20 minute drive gets you to the stunning Adriatic coast. The Trulli Elia were perfectly located to easily explore the beautiful towns of the Valle d'Itria.
Our days began by brewing some coffee and having breakfast on the back terrace, then we would explore the property and check the progress of the fruit trees and make our way to the pool for a dip.
My favorite place was the hammock from which I could watch the sky pass over the peaks of the trulli or turn around and look down the rows of olive trees separated by the uniquely colored ground - called "terra rossa," red earth. We would make our way into town and decide what to cook, do our shopping and return to the trulli to make lunch before a little nap in the hammock. There are wonderful restaurants in Ceglie, as well as the surrounds towns, if we didn't feel like cooking dinner. I was happy staying at the trulli for days and then we would venture out and explore the area.
Though Puglia is frequented by european tourists, it is still quite unchartered territory for the masses of American tourists so typical to the north. I loved this because I felt I was really seeing the region. I can't wait to go back!!!
