Mandorleto is a beautiful, spacious (150m2) trullo flanked by traditional lamias and panoramic views of ancient olive groves and medieval towns perched on the hills of Valle d’Itria. The 2 Ha (5 acres) private property with century-old olive trees, fruit trees, and local flora lies on a hill 5km from Ceglie Messapica, the gastronomic capital of Puglia. The location is peaceful, very private and only a 10-minute walk from Seppunisi farm where you can buy local mozzarellas, cheeses and other fresh dairy products 7 days a week.
A highlight is the swimming pool area overlooking the olive grove and surrounding countryside. There is a spacious terrace where you can soak up the sun on comfortable sun beds or relax in the shade of the gazebo on warm summer afternoons. The gazebo has a stone table that comfortably seats 8 that overlooks the pool and courtyard in front of the trullo making it an ideal location for both day and night entertainment.
Mandorleto was fully renovated in 2012 using traditional materials to create an authentic trullo experience with modern comforts! Small archways, hidden alcoves, and domed ceilings give a mystical ambiance that only a trullo can generate. All floors are made from ‘Trani’ marble, a honey-colored stone from local quarries. Windows have mosquito netting, traditional outer grills and shutters that can be left open at night to let in air. Walls up to 2m thick ensure that temperatures inside stay pleasantly cool during hot summer months.
With 3 double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, Mandorleto can comfortably sleep 6. A baby cot and high-chair can be provided upon request. The living room with 2 sofas, lounger and fireplace are located in the main trullo. Bathrooms have walk-in showers, a bidet, toilet, and washbasin. The spacious kitchen is bright and fully equipped for gourmet cooking. There is a dining table that comfortably seats 6 and double-doors that lead to a terrace with large stone table for outdoor dining and entertainment. The BBQ area is next to the terrace, a laundry room with washer & dryer is behind the kitchen and there are free Wi-Fi and secure parking for your use.
