Itria Valley luxury trullo with pool and views - A few minutes’ drive from the ancient town of Ceglie Messapica and within easy reach of Ostuni, Martina Franca and Alberobello, this magnificent cluster of recently renovated trulli is surrounded by a wonderful private parkland with large pool and jacuzzi. It overlooks the forested hills of the Itria Valley, orchards and olive groves marked by the distinctive white, dry-stone boundary walls. Splendid beaches along the Adriatic coast, dotted with old fishing shacks, watch towers and beach clubs are less than half-an-hour away.
The secluded situation of this large trullo, proudly towering over a parkland encompassing olives, almond and prickly pear trees, cacti and scented shrubs, allows you to unwind and soak up the surrounding beauty in perfect tranquillity. From the trullo a verdant, immaculate garden with lawns and colourful flower beds gently slopes down to the pool terrace, where some striking panoramic views can be enjoyed in every direction. This quintessential Mediterranean landscape will inspire your dinners al fresco under the large covered pergola every day of your holiday. The sizeable pool with vista offers another good reason to choose this blissful spot to relax, swim or sunbathe during your stay at Trulli Belvedere.
All around this trullo are some of Puglia's most picturesque whitewashed villages such as Ceglie Messapica, Ostuni, Cisternino, Martina Franca, Locorotondo, Oria and, of course, Alberobello. During the summer months you might even get caught amidst the celebration of the local patron saint, where entire communities gather together feasting on succulent gastronomic delicacies and local wines, whilst dancing to the lively rhythms of Pizzica and Taranta well into the night.
The most amazing feature of this trullo is the location, in open countryside with stunning views over the valley. The gardens are tended to with the utmost care, the flower beds are beautiful. The town of Ceglie Messapica, just a ten-minute drive from this trullo, is splendid and boasts an incredibly rich cultural and gastronomical heritage. When you go there, you must try dining at Al Fornello da Ricci, at Ristorante Cibus or Ristorante da Gino, for a taste of Puglia's real flavours.
