Oliver: “Located 10 minutes by car from Ceglie Messapica, Adele’s trullo is an oasis of calm and serenity nestled in the stunning Apulian countryside. The photos don’t do it justice - surrounded by all manner of fruit and olive trees, and with a fantastic pool, you can’t help but relax. The trullo has everything you need, and is next door to a wonderful dairy farm where the burrata is made daily. The housekeepers Francesco and Maria are a great source of local knowledge and extremely helpful with any questions or issues you may have. You are perfectly situated for visits to nearby hill towns such as the stunning Ostuni and Martina Franca, the sea is within easy reach, and Lecce only an hour by car. I can not recommend a stay here highly enough! Thank you so much for an absolutely wonderful stay. It really is a very special place and I am sure we will be back. Maria and Francesco were fantastic and very helpful.” (May 2019)

Delphine:“Great time at Adele’s house . Authentic trullo +house in a huge and wonderful garden . Very quiet , with a nice view on the valley . The perfect place to relax , enjoy the pool , and olive tree .”  (April 2019)

Cisca: "It is a great location, with lovely terraces and beautiful panorama and you have a lot of private space, which was a great place for us to be together. We were three adults. The pool was great, and the welcome very warmly by Franceso and Maria. We have really enjoyed this place and had a wonderful time.” (Oct 2018)

Amy: “We had a wonderful stay at Adele’s place. The housekeepers Francesco and Maria kindly met us in town and drove with us to the house. They were available and responsive throughout our stay but we had no problems. The house had everything we needed for a comfy stay - it’s really well stocked with everything and in particular the bbq and woodfire oven meant we cooked at the house most evenings. The pool was a real highlight - it’s big enough to swim proper lengths so made a handy counterpoint to the food and wine! I couldn’t praise the set up at the house highly enough - many comfortable seating arrangements for the primary objective of relaxing with a good book. And icing on the cake was the kitten who lived on the property. The town of Ceglie Messapica is a few mins away by car - a little too far away to walk unfortunately. There are many excellent restaurants and the atmosphere in the town square for an evening apero was perfect. Wish we were back there!” (Sept 2018)

Richard: “Adele’s Trullo is a lovely rustic country house surrounded by farms and amazing views. We had such a great and relaxing time enjoying only the sound of the wind and occasionally a sweet donkey from a neighbouring property. The property is spacious, comfortable, clean and perfect for a family or perhaps friends travelling together. Everything is clean and homely and the beds comfortable. The Trullo is located in a great spot with easy access to the coast and lots of beautiful small towns in Puglia. It was very easy to communicate with both the host and the property care takers and they were most welcoming and accommodating. We’d recommend this property and hope to stay here again.” (Sept 2018)

Marek: “This house with the garden and pool is a great place to stay in a beautiful location of Valle d'Itria to spend holiday in peace and relax with group of friends or family. Enough far from the rush and heat of the seashore but enough close to drive there if you want. All you need is there and it is very authentic, better than on pictures. Plus there is local ambassador of the owners - Francesco - always ready to come and help if something needed. I can only recommend.” (Aug 2018)

Deborah: “Rustic house with Trulli, extensive outdoor living space and excellent pool. Located near a quaint town Ceglie Messapica House keepers Maria and Francesco are excellent. Truly kind and helpful. Any problems were immediately sorted. Would definitely recommend a stay here as it was a lovely relaxing place with a good location for visiting many of the interesting places around. ” (August 2018)

Julien: “Une adresse typique très bien équipée et parfaite pour se dépayser Je recommande et reviendrai avec plaisir. Thank you so much for this wonderful week in your home Everything was great and going well. We appreciated the huge swimming pool and specifically the kids (July 2018)

Hafad: “An amazing location for a private and peaceful holiday with the whole family! We had an amazing stay in the trullo... Francesco and Maria received us very warmly and escorted us to the trullo. It was even better than expected! We had a great week with local products (a local masseria in the same street). We fell in love with the location: very private, clean, fully equiped and calm. The pool did it though: very big and clean! We will for sure go back! Thank you Adele!” (July 2018)

Bart: We had a great holliday in the trullo near Cegli. The place is really as beautifull as the photo's on airbnb suggest. We went there mainly to relax and to enjoy the local cuisine. One can't find a better place to do this. The kitchens (inside and outside) are extremely well equiped and the place is very close to a dozen (little) towns, with colourfull markets. Relaxing can be done on the many litte lounges and corners (teracces, pool side, roof to terrace, ...). The trullo is on a big domain, so privacy is guarantied. We were very warm welcomed by Maria and Francesco, who you can contact during your stay. A great place to have a complete stressfree holliday ! We left already with high expectations, but the reality was even better than what we had hoped for. A beautifull place, that fitted perfectly to al our needs and wishes. After a warme welcome we had nothing to do but enjoy. That's how hollidays should be. (Sept 2017)

Tom: We loved our stay here. Secluded, Quiet, Clean and so well equipped. Francesco and Maria who manage the property, were so incredibly helpful and supportive when our car broke down. Francesco offered to both fix our car and also drive us to our next destination, Ostuni. The property was as described and the pool was a real boon. The perfect place to get away from it all. The town nearby was both picturesque and interesting and we regret not exploring more (but it's hard to get away from the pool). There's a family of kittens on the property which provided endless entertainment but it's the perfect place to relax. We'd 100% come back here and plan to do so in the future. Do check with directions as it was hard to find. Love it! (Sept 2017)

Laureen: Nous avons passé un excellent séjour chez Adèle. L'endroit est magnifique, la vue depuis le rooftop pour les couchers de soleil est sublime! La piscine est immense et très agréable. Le trullo est vraiment plein de charme et rustique et donne du cachet à la Maison. Literie confortable. Endroit idéal pour allier visites et farniente. (Sept 2017)

Pascalina J'ai l'habitude de voyager avec airbnb et je peux vous dire que c'est mon plus gros coup de coeur ! Cet endroit est magique. Tout était parfait. Le logement, le cadre exceptionnel, la piscine, les contacts avec les propriétaires et avec les personnes qui gèrent en leur absence. La situation est parfaite également. Il y a un chouette centre à qqs km ou on trouve de tout et c'est proche de bcp de lieux à visiter. La mer est à moins de 30 min. Ms pour être honnête on se sent tellement bien sur place qu on pourrait presque ne pas quitter cet endroit. Mm nos ados ont adoré. Il est possible de loger jusqu'à 8 personnes et croyez moi personne ne se marchera sur les pieds tellement le domaine est vaste. C'est idéal pour des vacances en famille ou entre amis. On peut parfois craindre de réserver via rbnb ms croyez moi vous pouvez vous y rendre les yeux fermés. Le rapport qualité prix est parfait. Nous n'avions réservé que 4 nuits la bas car nous voulions aller au bord de mer . Nous l'avons regretté ! Nous avons mm voulu y retourner ms c'était complet. C'est bcp plus agréable que le bord de mer qui est pleins de touristes. A refaire nous aurions réservé la semaine complète. Allez y sans craintes, vous ne serrez pas déçu, c'est endroit est magique ! Je retourne rarement deux fois au mm endroit ms cette fois je me réjouis déjà d'y être à nouveau! (July 2017) Google translate: I usually travel with Airbnb and I can tell you that this is my biggest favorite! This place is magical. Everything was perfect. The accommodation, the exceptional setting, the swimming pool, the contacts with the owners and with the people who manage in their absence. The situation is perfect too. There is a nice center at qqs km where you can find everything and it is close to bcp of places to visit. The sea is less than 30 min. Ms to be honest we feel so good on the spot that we could almost not leave this place. Mm our teens loved it. It is possible to accommodate up to 8 people and believe me nobody will walk on the feet so the area is vast. It is ideal for holidays with family or friends. We can sometimes be afraid to book via RMBB believe me you can go there with your eyes closed. The value for money is perfect. We only booked 4 nights down because we wanted to go to the seaside. We regretted it! We wanted to go back MS it was full. It is much nicer than the seaside which is full of tourists. A remake we would have booked the full week. Go there without fears, you will not be disappointed, it's magic place! I rarely go back twice to the ms spot this time I'm already looking forward to it again! (July 2017)

Mike: What a fantastic 2 weeks !! The most well equipped self catering accommodation we have ever visited and that you can imgaine - if you need it it's there !!. Areal homefrom home feel. The trullo, lamia and cassetta are set in huge grounds in the countryside overlooking the Itria valley about 4km from the pretty town of Ceglie Messapica. Fantastic pool andplenty of different seating areas for those that want a bit of privacy and release from the warm sunshine - always a nice breeze though and pleasant in the evening. Outside wood fire, BBQ and pizza oven (you have to try it) will keep you warm if you get a bit chilly. The owners (Adele and Jerome in the UK) and our hosts Maria and Francesco in Italy were incredibly helpful throughout and just lovely people. Surrounding towns, countryside and beach resorts (30 min drive) are all must do trips and a care is essential as the Trullo is quite remote - all part of the rustic charm. We will definitely return to this area - just fabulous !! (June 2017)

Anja: Adele's place is a must for anyone who likes to be enchanted by quiet wholesome beauty and magic views. The property has many lovely corners to hang out and read or just listen to the birds. The roof top terrace is an unexpected surprise for gorgeous sunsets and the trullo and pool are to die for. No need to go anywhere. What are you waiting for? (May 2017)

Rebecca: Wish i was still at this place. Just come back from a lovely 10 days with my husband and in-laws. Beautiful trullo in a lovely area. Peaceful and serene. Loads of space and different areas for relaxing. Great views of the Valle d'Itria from the veranda and the big pool. Lovely town Ceglie Messapica 10 mins down the road with great restaurants and small supermarket. Dairy farm with shop practically at the end of the driveway selling yummy cheeses, meats, and homemade yoghurt as well as flour for bread and pizzas and a good selection of wine. (May 2017)

Sara: Jerome was most helpful in providing information about the property and area prior to my visit. Francesco, the caretaker in Puglia could not have been more helpful. Our flight was delayed by 2 hours so we arrived later than expected but he came out to let us in and show us around without complaint. A particular example of his diligence was when one of the group set off the alarm in error - all our mobiles were switched off and he tried to contact us to check we were all right and on not being able to get through came to the property to check in person. The property is perfectly situated as a centre for exploring this beautiful and interesting region of Italy. The swimming pool was wonderful and when illuminated at night quite breathtakingly beautiful. The kitchen was extremely well equipped and although we did not use them there was also a most efficient looking barbeque and a pizza oven with fuel all ready for use. I cannot fault it. (Sept 2016)

Mathilda: “We had a lovely vacation at Jeromes place. The house was even better than we expected. The kitchen is well equipped to say the least. The garden, patios and the pool was just great. Francesco and Maria was very helpful and attentive. We would defenitely come back!” (June 2016)

Ben: This is a lovely house with an amazing pool, perfectly located near all the prettiest towns in the Valle D'Itria. It had everything we needed for a wonderfully relaxing stay. Jerome provided a great list of local restaurant recommendations which came in really handy. Francesco (the local contact at the house) was really helpful, friendly & a lovely bloke overall. There is also an amazing dairy farm 2 mins up the road that make fresh mozzarella every morning that is truly delicious! Couldn't recommend this place enough! (June 2016)

Ken: This villa was fantastic. The space and division of the accommodation is great for families and groups. The kids loved their Trullo. There was lots of different outside spaces that were well equipped for lounging/eating/relaxing. The pool was absolutely fabulous and well maintained. We enjoyed making pizzas and using the outside cooking space. The house had all the equipment we needed and was clean and tidy. We enjoyed exploring the surrounding area. The dairy, which is just a short walk away, provided us with all the local food, wine, pasta, etc. Francesco (who looks after the property) was great. Good communication and arrangements for meeting us and showing us the property when we arrived. (June 2016)

Sarah: We had a fantastic time in Italy at this wonderful trullo with its huge pool. Jerome organised for detailed information to be sent to us in advance which was very helpful. We were welcomed very warmly by Francesco and Maria on arrival and they were always on hand throughout our stay for any issues. The trullo and lamia were charming - a fully equipped kitchen and outside pizza oven were great as we are keen cooks and we had fun making and cooking pizza and lasagne. There is a huge garden full of mature fruit trees (which we were encouraged to pick and eat) as well as herbs and olives, and oh yes, the cats that live on the property and the puppy from next door. We loved it! Everything was very well presented and clean, lots of outside space for relaxing (sun beds, relaxed seating, hammocks) - the trullo was very cosy and atmospheric and well insulated. The area was relatively quiet - some tourists but mainly Italian I think - the hilltop towns which surround this area are very picturesque and the views from them are amazing. A day at the beach (one hour away) was well within striking distance. The pool is huge and excellent for more serious swimmers. Thanks Jerome, we had a fantastic time in this delightful corner of Italy. (Sept 2015)

Tash: We had the best holiday at the trullo. We had planned to go and see lots more of Puglia but in the end the trullo was to good to leave. There is a massive salt water pool, figs and pomegranates growing with the grounds and an amazing farm shop with delicious cheese a short walk away. Francesco and Maria the housekeepers were really helpful and kept in touch over the week. All in all we couldn't have asked for more. (Sept 2015)
