Good premises just a few downfalls
I visited this property with my mother, younger sisters and brother as a family treat. The Trulli and studio are great facilities especially with the private pool to explore Puglia. However, we had a few issues.
The property manager we could not get a hold of to meet at 4pm. We did arrive early around 3pm and was told he would be at the property in around 25 minutes. He turned up at 4:20, so later than the actual agreed time of arrival. I mentioned I couldn’t get through to his phone and he asked if I had called around 3. Then he said he didn’t have his phone on him so it was all rather confusing. We then received a text the next day to say he would be by to collect the cleaners keys which were very readily accessible. I was a bit annoyed that we could not have been informed and just let ourselves in until he arrived.
Second issue, out of the property owners control is the substantial number of mosquitoes, all of us were eaten alive. No matter how many sprays, citronella candles or plug ins. To the point I couldn’t walk for a day my legs where bitten that badly. The patio adjacent to the pool had several areas of spilled wax we assume from the previous visitors.
Third issue, the air con in the Trulli would not work. Someone was sent out, who via google translate said the unit is too old to be repaired. Now I know it’s out of the owners hands if this had broken but I wonder if this unit has been serviced. Particularly with the dangers of legionella being emitted.
We did have two power cuts during our stay one by a storm and the second was a scheduled power company maintenance. Again out of his control, however bear in mind everything including the water is electronically pumped. Meaning no toilets.
Following the storm and power cuts, the Trulli started to smell quite strange a musty almost sewer like smell. However that was our second to last day and we weren’t about much.
Lastly the Trulli in some very small parts was quite dirty, particularly around the beds.
Thank you for the helpful feedback. The issues with the local manager will be raised with him, though I think you may have contacted him at a busy time of day with his meeting other guests. I have not had complaints from guests about mosquitoes, these are inevitable in hot weather and rural areas. The power lines were being upgraded and unfortunately it was during your stay. They should have done it off season! We are dealing with the aircon system at time of writing. I phoned around for free standing còolers but was not successful. The previous guest group was larger than they advised, consequently left a good deal of clean up after they left. I hope these issues did not put you off visiting Puglia again.
Très belle propriété
Super séjour, logement typique et très beau , la piscine et les extérieurs sont très agréables.
Fulsome praise but awarded 4 star. It would be helpful to know where we went short so we can pui tit right. Welcome comments nevertheless.
Authentic Trulli- very peaceful location , with a lovely swimming pool . Close to charming Ceglie and not far from beaches. Local people very friendly and accommodating. a very enjoyable family holiday,
Delighted that the guests share our enthusiasm for Puglia and the local people. Also delighted they had an enjoyable holiday.
Una settimana di pace e relax
Abbiamo passato una settimana di assoluto riposo nel trullo di Tony. I bambini hanno adorato. Proprietario molto disponibile; anche Martin, che ci ha accolto sul posto e ci ha dato tutte le indicazioni. Consigliato
It is especially welcome as the guests live in Italy and from that can well attest how restful and well managed the trullo is. Thanks for the positive feedback.
A.K.A. Our own private castle
Really loved the stay here, the place feels more secluded than it actually is. The closest neighbours are just out of sight and we didn't hear much from either, the place is really peaceful (with lots of cicadas at nights). The facilities are pretty basic but functional, there's plenty of hot water for showers and a great outdoor shower next to the pool for washing off sunscreen, and the house warden Martin will help you out with everything you could need. The kitchens are well equipped and the outdoor dining area fantastic for our group of 8 (5adults and three kids). The nearby village of Ceglie is really cosy, has a few good supermarkets as well as specialist shops and offers some really good dining options, try the Da Gino's just for their antipasto, they're fantastic! All in all a very enjoyable stay, would definitely recommend this!
It is always a great pleasure to hear that guests enjoy their holiday at our trullo, and get to know this wonderful but little known part of Italy. Ceglie is an historical town that delights all who visit it, and enjoy the culinary experience it is famed for. It is also 'cosy' as you put it, being large enough to contain all the amenities to meet all your needs, plus having many cultural and religious festivals through the summer months. Previous guests have expressed similar sentiments about the town and staying at the trullo, with its unusual structure. Feedback on your holiday enables me to improve on guests' experience each year within reason. I will pass on your positive comments to Martin who you have found very helpful. I hope you will revisit the trullo to enable to explore places you may not had time to visit.
Coast / Beach:
Med bil er de adriatiske sandvannene 30 til 45 minutter unna, med sine tre fiskehavner i Torre Canne, Vilanova og Savelletri, samt Torre Guaceto marinepark. Nord for Savelletri er den grekro-romerske byen Egnazia. Den joniske kysten med robuste klipper og sandstrender er en time unna, pluss et acquapark på Pulsano. Alle strendene er trygge med tilsyn. Hvis det er blått, er de ioniske strendene skjermet. Rikelig med strandbarer og kafeer som serverer utmerkede retter om sommeren på begge kyster.
Bari flyplass ligger 70 km unna, og Brindisi er 40 km (28 miles), begge serveres tre dager i uken av Ryanair fra London Stansted. Napoli flyplass er 3. 5 timer unna og Roma 6 timer. På grunn av landets beliggenhet på Trullo og spredningen av sandstrender og steder av interesse er en bil avgjørende. Lokale busser går fra en busstasjon litt over en kilometer unna til alle større byer og moderne tog går mellom Martina og Lecce (Firenze i Sør).
Sykler kan leies fra Ceglie.
Ceglie Messapica ligger 2 miles unna med sin gamle bydel og hertugelige slott, med Ostuni, Martina, Cisternino og Alberobello innen 15 til 30 minutter unna med bil. Alle har sine historiske sentre med restauranter, kafeer og barer. Barokk Lecce er best nås direkte med tog fra Ceglie, da parkering er nær umulig der. Gallipoli og Trani er vel verdt å besøke på en dagstur, så vel som Matera, hvor "Kristi lidenskap" ble filmet. Flere lokale grotter er åpne i sommermånedene.
Ceglie Messapica har alle lokale butikker, banker, postkontor, kjemikere, sykehus, en god størrelse ukentlig lørdag marked, og ti-pin bowlingbaner med egen spisestue. Byen er kjent for fine spisesteder i høy klasse. Andre lokale byer har fine restauranter også. Gjesteboken vil gi deg informasjon om noen gode restauranter som ble funnet av tidligere gjester. Ostuni og Martina har større butikker for mer eksklusive klær for alle aldre, samt store ukentlige markeder. En kilometer unna er et godt "ekspress" supermarked for dine daglige behov. Auchan, Carrefour, Leclerc og Cityper er alle innen en time unna.
Lokale tog til Lecce, Brindisi og Taranto, samt buss til store byer.
