Trulli Trazzonara sits along a quiet country lane that leads to Monte Trazzonara, so benefits from total peace and quiet.

Hilltop Martina Franca (9 km) is a fascinating town within the Istria Valley that has an historic centre made up of winding streets and whitewashed houses. There are also beautiful examples of baroque and rococo architecture to marvel at too. Explore the centuries-old town walls and their gates, which also act as a dividing line between the old town and the more modern part of Martina Franca.

The town of Ceglie Messapica (12 km) is a foodie’s heaven, with its huge range of restaurants and pizzerias serving regional cuisine. It’s also one of the oldest towns in the whole of Puglia, meaning there’s plenty to tick off your historic sightseeing list. Discover ancient churches, beautiful palazzi and stunning Castello di Ceglie Messapica. Also visit Grotte di Montevicoli just outside Ceglie Messapica for an underground adventure.

Ostuni (16 km) is also known as ‘The White City’, due to the old town’s whitewashed buildings. One of the most well-known historic landmarks is the 15th-century cathedral, so it’s a must-visit. A fresh fruit and vegetable market is held every Saturday and is a great way to rub shoulders with locals. If you visit Ostuni towards the end of August you have the chance to experience the Cavalcata di Sant'Oronzo festival.

For a day out at the beach, head to Villanova (24 km) or Savelletri (30 km). These coastal spots both offer sandy stretches and ideal swimming conditions in the clear, calm sea.

The Torre Guaceto Nature Reserve (38 km) makes for a great day out. This coastal and marine reserve offers a visitor centre and museum, as well as the chance to see a variety of wildlife.

Also be sure to visit the city of Matera (85 km) with its atmospheric caves. There’s also Lecce (94 km), which is famous for its huge number of baroque buildings. Both cities are within a 90-minute drive.

Owner Profile

How long have you owned the property?
We bought the property 10 years ago.

What was it about the property that you first fell in love with?
Trulli Trazzonara is one heck of a place. While it is a beautifully restored old trullo house which oozes character it’s also unusually spacious. The set-up of the accommodation offers great flexibility and opportunity for families and larger groups of people to holiday together but at the same time with a great deal of independence, peace and privacy. The location is spectacular and especially from the roof terrace you feel surrounded by what seems like thousands of olive trees and fruit trees as far as the eye can see. What our guests enjoy most is lazing the day away around the enormous swimming pool, reputed to be the biggest in the Martina Franca area, soaking up the sunshine and picking ripe figs straight from our trees.

Are there any interesting stories in its history?
We enjoy being in Trulli Trazzonara for at least one month every year ourselves and it has then been sort of an operational base from where we could treat ourselves to a fabulous discovery of Puglia’s hidden gems. As we wanted to share our experiences, we wrote a 450 page book on Puglia (“Welcome to Unspoilt Puglia) featuring oodles of historical and sightseeing information and an unrivalled wealth of photographs that lovingly capture Puglia’s enigmatic soul. We will gladly offer this unique guide to whoever decides to holiday on our property.
Our property has also been the backdrop and inspiration of a court-métrage film “Dove mi porta il vento”.

Have you ever had any famous guests staying?

Among the many guests we had probably the most famous has been Alejandro Iñárritu, the Mexican Oscar-winning film director and producer, known for his films The Revenant and Birdman.

For anyone coming to stay is there anything in the surrounding area they should...

Really do?
Biking in the Valle d’Itria countryside, the Acquedotto cycle tracks or in the Coastal Dunes regional Nature Park, near Montalbano.

Really eat?
Pizze in Ristorante Montevicoli in Ceglie Messapica or “stracotto di maiolino in crosta con cipolline” in Osteria del Coco Pazzo in Martina Franca.

Really see?
Ceglie Messapica.  This town does not have the Disney qualities of a postcard perfect place that has been gussied up for tourists.  It is more authentic and has more “local” feel than other lovely towns like Ostuni and Martina Franca.  It has an almost Moorish style to it.  Street architecture, traffic, people and day-to-day life seem a bit contradictory, random, bohemian and somewhat zany.

What insider tip would you pass on about the property or the area?
No need to go to badly overcrowded beaches in the peak season.  Instead, have a whale of a time in our unique 18 x 7 metre private infinity swimming pool. Lovely shaded drystone walled travertine terraces and patios with padded stone seats, sun loungers and umbrellas transform the garden and pool area into splendid open-air lounges, creating an enchanting place to relax.

    Fabulous pool! Wonderful villa. Excellent place for a large family holiday. Lucia was so helpful and attentive and cooked us an excellent traditional meal. Would love to come again!

  • Special family vacation

  • Wonderful stay

    on 01/07/2023

    Thank you for a wonderful stay in this beautiful villa. We had the most fantastic time exploring Puglia. Special thank you to Lucia for being so welcoming and helpful.

  • Incredible week at Trulli Trazzonara

    on 18/10/2022

    This property is wonderful. I booked it for my 50th birthday and was joined by 12 friends. It was the perfect size for us. Two people had to sleep on sofabeds, but the rest got (in most cases) a double bed. We enjoyed breakfast and coffee outside on the stone seat, various points around the pool (huge - unheated by very refreshing) during the day and the seating near the pool for sundowners and watching some of us in some table-tennis matches. In the evening the kitchen we cooked and it was fabulous. All the kitchen equipment you need and a great big table to sit together to enjoy it. Later we'd sit outside at the wonderful large stone table and drink wine and listen to music.

  • Paradise in Puglia

    on 19/09/2022

    Words can’t begin to describe how incredible this property is! I had booked it originally for a belated birthday holiday with 10 of my closest friends and everything about it exceeded our already high expectations from the listing.
    The villa itself is beyond charming — we repeatedly referred to it as a self-care oasis. Very private, very clean, very relaxing. From the charming sun-baked trulli on the main house to the enormous, lavender-scented swimming pool, you can tell a lot of thought and detail went into this property. Every bedroom was so well-appointed and comfortable and there was ample space for everyone to have their own privacy (important in so large a group).
    The property owners were exceptionally warm and helpful in arranging our stay in the days leading up to the trip and their complimentary gifts of wine and local guides were as thoughtful as they were classy. I would also like to mention the property manager Lucia who was exceptional in her communications to the group and in making our stay comfortable. She is one in a million!
    Our stay at this property could truly not have been more magical and the memories we made that week will definitely have us making this an annual holiday! Thank you so much for having us!

  • Beyond expectations, lovely stay

    on 18/08/2020

    Beautiful property with a superb swimming pool All the comforts for a great holiday

  • Amazing place for family holiday in Puglia!!

    on 12/08/2019

    We stayed at Trulli Trazzonara for a week and could have just stayed on. We were a group of three families with teenage (and older) kids and we all absolutely loved it. The main house had enough space for us to prepare meals for the big group (lots of fun) and we could choose to eat outside or inside. Loved the different living areas offered in the main house, the villetta and the trulli, and we really had so much space to enjoy, together and alone. The pool.....what can I say....we would head to the pool as soon as we woke, with our coffee and books, and have a morning swim before heading out for the day's adventures. The house was close enough to nearby villages that we didn't feel as if it just took too long to pop out for supplies. It did take all of us a little time to find the house on arrival, but once we got the lay of the land, it was pretty easy to get around. We have passed on a couple of tips that we thought would be useful for visitors finding the house. Loved Lucia, the property manager who was very helpful with all our questions. We picked apricots from the tree in the garden, used all the herbs from the garden and appreciated the wine, bread, crackers and garlic left for us on arrival. Honestly, the house is probably the best house we have stayed in with a large group, and we all thought that it was really well equipped with an abundance of kitchenware that meant we weren't constantly washing up. Decorated beautifully! Our children all loved their time there, especially with the pool and the table tennis table. Anyway, I could just keep raving about the house, but will leave it for future guests to discover themselves. Oh, one last thing - the requirement to separate rubbish for recycling and compost was great. Thank you so much - we hope to be back some day.
