Bask by the pool in the shade of the olive groves… pick the sweetest figs from the tree. This remote place makes you feel special the moment you arrive. Patrizia and Enzo welcome you with smiles and the garden (for this lush area) is characteristically green.
You wake to a breakfast of homemade cakes, fresh oranges and local cheeses, served on the communal terrace or in the big light living room. Your hosts have achieved a stylish restoration in sympathy with the 100-year-old trulli.
It’s easy to stay in and cook a simple supper: there’s an excellent kitchen and a barbecue. For a treat, book a meal at Cibus in Ceglie: it’s a 15-minute drive. Ostuni, queen of Puglia’s dazzling white towns, is not much further; beyond are wonderful sand beaches. Swim and sail at Rosa Marina, or find a hidden creek at Torre Guaceto, and watch the wildlife and the birds.
