About the Property

Sleeps 6/9. 3 Bedroom Ancient Stone Trullo, Private (unheated) Swimming Pool

Trullo Fico is an ancient stone Trullo, created to ensure your holiday is comfortable and relaxing. Set in three acres of olive, almond and fruit trees, the house is completed enclosed and has a large patio area featuring a private, unheated 10 x 5m swimming pool with small children's pool/jacuzzi, a bamboo shaded dining area with large stone barbecue, and a variety of comfortable seating including a bamboo covered outside sofa, beanbag sofa, sunbeds, hammock and deckchairs. For small kids (and the big ones!), there is also a large trampoline, an all-weather table tennis table and basket ball hoop within the grounds. A variety of 'ride-on' toddler toys can also be requested.

The house is interior-designed and well equipped with hand picked furniture, feature lighting, luxury mattresses with feather duvets and Egyptian cotton sheets. In the dining area, there is a SMEG oven and hob, dishwasher and large American style fridge/freezer. There are two wet rooms with chrome power showers and Egyptian cotton towels. Entertainment includes Teac music system, iPod loaded with tunes and speakers inside and out, plus flat screen TV, a well-stocked movie library and children's toys.


A generous welcome pack is provided so that you don't have to rush off to the supermarket*. This is included in the rental cost.

Mimmo, our manager on the ground speaks fluent English and Italian and will be on hand to guide you around the property when you arrive. He can also help you with restaurant reservations, babysitting and taxi requirements, or any other queries. It is also possible to organise for a meal to be delivered to Trullo Fico should you require it. These are extra costs.

Trullo Fico is situated directly between Ostuni (la Citta Bianca) and Ceglie Messapica (Terra d'Arte e Gastronomia) - both are approximately a five minute drive.

In Ostuni and Ceglie Messapica you can find a wide variety of restaurants, osterias, ice-cream parlours and pizzerias. The architecture of these towns is very beautiful and representative of the area. The local supermarket is approximately five minutes by car. Both Ostuni and Ceglie Messapica have excellent individual fish, meat, pasta, fruit and vegetable, wine and cheese shops. The house also provides easy access to other beautiful Baroque towns of Lecce, Martina Franca, Alberobello and Locorotondo.

Trullo Fico has sea on both sides of it - the Adriatic is about 10km away with a mixture of sandy and rocky beaches along the extensive coastline. The Ionic coast line, approximately 40km away, is very different, with great historic architecture and white sandy beaches. There you can also find a wide array of water sport activities.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: My name is Mel Massey and I run And Relax. The ethos behind And Relax (and Trullo Fico) is that it is tiring and stressful researching, booking and preparing for holidays, so when you arrive, you just want to relax and recharge immediately. As fully equipped as possible, Trullo Fico has been designed and furnished with style, total relaxation and comfort in mind - sleeping in Egyptian cotton sheets and feather duvets on quality mattresses; soaking under sleek chrome power-showers; relaxing on outside sofas, hammock, sunbeds or deckchairs by the private pool; enjoying music outside and in; entertaining kids with the pool/jacuzzi, trampoline, table tennis table, DVD library and toys; a well-stocked welcome pack so you don't have to dash off to the supermarket. See you for yourself...

Why the Owner Chose Ostuni, Brindisi, Italy:
We loved Puglia from the moment we set eyes on it, the amazing architecture, history, culture, charming people, wonderful food and wine. These elements, in a beautiful rustic setting dominated by olive trees and still that innate style Italy is famous for! The fact that tourism is low-key and less commercial is particularly appealing, especially in the peak tourist season. A search for the annual rude postcard for my brother drew a blank, something I was very pleased about! We fell in love with Trullo Fico for its history and location. It is a traditional, original stone Saracen Trullo with two newer lamia (vaulted rooms) attached either side. The simplicity of the materials belies the craftsmanship within the building. The stones have definitely got lots of stories to tell.
