In the Puglian countryside, surrounded by landscapes of olive and fruit trees, Trullo Le Fate is a stylish home in a wonderful setting just a short drive from Ostuni, one of northern Salento’s most enchanting towns and UNESCO-protected site.

The original trullo dates back to the mid-19th century when it was still common for locals to live in trulli across this part of Puglia. It has been lovingly renovated in 2019; climb into the cosy raised bed in the alcove or sit back in the pretty armchair in a relaxation corner and there’s even a characterful shower room. Personal touches such as little objets d’art and antique furniture add both quality and warmth.

Two further bedrooms can be found in a new home, created beside the trullo and built from stone allowing it to blend in perfectly with its surroundings. The owner, an interior design enthusiast, has styled this house beautifully, choosing each feature with the greatest care from the intricate tiles in the kitchen and the beautiful prints scattered throughout to the exquisite old Italian lamps that have been brought back to life. Air-conditioning and underfloor heating have also been added and even the towels and bed linen are of the finest quality.

Doors from the kitchen-diner open out to a lovely veranda looking out to the swimming pool, extensive lawn and olive trees beyond. The gardens around the home have been landscaped with pretty stone walls and little steps leading down to the poolside area. Enjoy relaxing days in the Puglian sunshine, sipping wine from the vineyards of Salento al-fresco or preparing a feast by the stone barbecue. The vast grounds also feature fruit trees with all sorts of seasonal delights and there’s even a little kitchen garden for guests to visit.  

La Città Bianca, the white-washed hilltop town of Ostuni, is just over a ten-minute drive away where you can explore the maze of historic lanes, discovering awe-inspiring architecture, steep alleyways, colourful trattorias and catching magical glimpses of the Adriatic sea. Equally as near is Ceglie Messapica, a food lover’s dream with some wonderful restaurants dotted around the picturesque old town and surroundings, including the Michelin starred Al Fornello da Ricci.

Well-known towns such as Locorotondo, Martina Franca and famous Alberobello with its 14th century trulli are all nearby whilst the Adriatic coast can be reached in twenty minutes. Sandy beaches, lidos and rocky ledges await, many surrounded by incredible natural beauty such as Lido Morelli and Torre Guaceto.

Heading west, within an hour you can also reach the turquoise seas of the Ionian. This part of Alto Salento offers you such a variety of wonderful Puglian experiences.

Trullo Le Fate is located in the Puglian countryside in northern Salento, perfectly situated between the towns of Ostuni and Ceglie Messapica, just twenty minutes from the Adriatic coastline.

Ostuni (7km), also known as 'La Città Bianca', is a beautiful hilltop town with a maze of narrow lanes, alleyways and steep staircases where you can discover historic architecture, white-washed houses with colourful doors and trailing flowers, pretty restaurants as well as amazing views of the surrounding olive groves and Adriatic sea. The 15th century cathedral can be found at the very top and well worth the effort. Look out for the vibrant market on the edge of town on a Saturday morning where locals gather to buy all sorts of regional produce.

Also close by is Ceglie Messapica (7km), a picturesque town dating back to medieval times which has a particularly good reputation for its cuisine. Discover some great shops selling local delights as well as food and drink festivities across the year. There are some very good restaurants in and around the town ranging from authentic trattorias to the Michelin starred Al Fornello da Ricci. Ceglie Messapica doesn’t tend to attract the crowds of some of the other more famous towns in this region so there’s a real sense of authenticity as you wander around.

There are some incredible beaches along the Adriatic coast, around twenty minutes by car. Look out for Torre Guaceto (30km) with its nature reserve featuring sand dunes and lagoons or discover the sandy beaches of Lido Morelli (20km) and Torre Pozzelle (18km).

There are other great beaches on the Ionian side, around an hour away. Turquoise coloured seas, rocky beaches and sandy shores make this area just as popular in the summer. Campomarino (52km), near the protected dunes and forests, is one of the best beaches with its fine sand and clear sea.

Alberobello (33km), a UNESCO World Heritage site with trulli dating back to the 14th century, as well as picturesque Martina Franca (24km), Locorotondo (25km) and Cisternino (17km), one of Italy’s ‘Borghi più Belli’, are all within easy reach.

Across this region you will also find horse-riding, cycling, mountain biking, incredible walks, golf, a variety of watersports as well as olive oil and wine-tasting.

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

A warm welcome awaits families in Puglia and there’s plenty to keep youngsters busy in this lovely area.

Firstly, the beach is only a 20-minute drive away. There are long sandy bays, rocky ledges and lidos often with sun-beds, umbrellas and summer restaurants. The crystal-clear water is lovely for swimming as well as snorkelling and there are some wonderful walking paths, bike trails and watersports along the coastline.

The Ionian coast, around an hour away, is also a great place to visit – Campomarino is especially known for its sandy bay and gently-shelving sea, perfect for a family day out.

The local towns of Ostuni and Ceglie Messapica can be visited with a gelato in-hand as well as plenty of cafes in the summer months where you can seek shade and have a break from all the exploring. Alberobello is an especially magical place with its medieval trulli to enchant all ages.

For a change of scene, spend a hot summers day at one of the waterparks which can be found in northern Salento or visit Zoosafari, around 30km away in Fasano. There are also lots of activities at the Ciuchino Birichino Adventure Park, about 20-minutes away, with activities such as tree-top climbing courses, rock climbing and archery.

The caves across the region are also fascinating to discover, the nearest being Grotte di Montevicoli near Ceglie Messapica.

  • An oasis of peace

    on 28/09/2019

    An oasis of peace: an ideal location to relax and to be in pleasant company, surrounded by centuries-old olive groves. The Trullo is completely renewed and the new building nearby provides extra comfort without spoiling the characteristic and unique Apulian charm! I definitely recommend it.

  • Amazing property

    on 08/09/2019

    Amazing property that offers any comfort. The rooms are very cleaned with great attention to details. The Trullo is enchanting and the swimming pool is fantastic! An awesome place to spend an holiday immersed in the green of nature and in absolute tranquility.

  • Charming place

    on 23/08/2019

    Charming place surrounded by unspoilt nature. The property is completely renewed and takes up the original architecture. A gorgeous swimming pool offers moments of relaxation. I suggest it both for a family with kids (that can easily manage its routine) or group of friends that want to spend together an holiday without worrying about their privacy
