Charming trulli in beautiful garden

Apulia-Puglia

€380,000 ID: 149508

The property is composed of a group of trulli clustering around an ancient stone courtyard. It includes five spacious bedrooms, two bathrooms, a comfortable living room with bay windows on all sides and an open fireplace, and a large kitchen with beautiful, hand-made, wood fittings and furniture.  The garden has many ancient olive trees, cyprus, pine, and fruit trees - almond, fig, pear, walnut, cherry and many more. 

The property is on a country lane, safely set away from the main road, making it a perfect location for children who can roam the large garden freely, enjoying its many secret corners including the big tree house. The atmosphere here is welcoming and relaxing, quiet and safe but not isolated with a few families in trulli nearby.  Two stone courtyards, one in front of the trulli and one behind the kitchen with a barbecue, provide ideal spaces for sitting out in the sun or in the shade.

The charm of the ancient stone trulli, the green views over Ceglie and the peaceful landscape of the surrounding valleys, the quality of the air, the deep quiet and privacy, the vividness of the light, the coolness of the trulli, the suggestive views of the garden from the bay windows of the living room, all make the property delightful.  It is in an ideal area for excursions between art, culture, nature, gastronomy and wine.

The closest town is Ceglie Messapica, a charming rural town famed for its gastronomy, followed by Ostuni, Martina Franca, Locorotondo, Alberobello, Lecce and Otranto.  The beaches are 12-15 km away around Ostuni on the beautiful Adriatic, with the famed natural beauty and crystal-clear waters of the Ionian coast offering more options on the other side 40km away.  For lazier summer days, we have an easy-going club five minutes away with a large swimming pool and other facilities.   

We have owned this property since 1989 and in the last two years have rented it in the summer.  Our guest reviews have all been five-star and are verifiable on rental sites.  Here is one: “We spent three weeks in this beautiful property. Enthusiastic about everything, from the house and its well-conceived spaces to spend a holiday together being able to maintain privacy and autonomy, to the wonderful immense garden full of special corners (above a trullo poetic sunset view, reading in a spacious hammock in the shade of two majestic olive trees, breakfast around the table adjacent to the very spacious super-equipped kitchen, dinner around the main table where you had to cover yourself in the middle of July!)

A beautiful house that thanks to the large windows in the living area makes you live a bright interior / exterior, in the center of the house a courtyard dominated by a beautiful centuries-old olive tree. Lighting in the evening under the trees and on the trulli which give a unique charm to the property. Without forgetting the variety of splendid cultural and natural places not far from the enchanting town of Ceglie. Difficult to leave this house ... "  

The trulli date from the end of the 19th century. We bought the property renovated thirty years ago, have treasured it and are selling it in excellent condition.  We have planning permission from the city council to construct a swimming pool.
