TrulliRoccia is a rare, romantic and recently restored (completed April 2014) trulli that has the ‘Soul of Puglia’ running throughout every cone and rock of its ancient construction. It will embrace you and captivate your heart from the moment you make your final approach to the property and step through the door.
Rare, because this well-appointed trulli has been sensitively restored to include three (3) ensuite bathrooms for each of the three (3) generously sized bedrooms, along with two sitting rooms/lounges, dining room and kitchen, should you choose to dine in. Total interior is 115 square meters / 1000 square feet. A plethora of original features – such as numerous 'niche', stone arches, working fireplace. alcoves and a wood-burning pizza oven, etc – will unfold as you settle in to a very special stay at TrulliRoccia.
As the Puglian lifestyle is centred around ‘outdoor living’, the property has a walled and outside shaded dining area (in addition to inside dining for six). And plenty of additional stone terracing for basking in the sun. There is a poolside shaded pergola and yet another poolside dining area, also for six (6)
Set in nearly one hectare (2 acres) on a hilltop with stunning vistas, TrulliRoccia will wrap you up in the ‘Soul of Puglia’ and envelope your mood. Its idyllic setting will challenge your senses -- vistas, birdsong, olive and fruit trees. You will be surrounded by countryside and magnificent views pocked by distant trulli cones poking through the olive groves and majestic hilltop masseria – providing maximum tranquility, serenity and relaxation for you and your family or travel companions. . ., making it oh so easy to leave the world behind.
Still, you will be ideally located for convenient access (10-15 min by car) to the beautiful Puglian hilltop towns of Ostuni, Cisternino, Martina Franca and Ceglie Messapica . . . each with its own unique character – and type of mozzarella! Ostuni's beaches are only minutes drive away.
Further afield, excursions to UNESCO World Heritage sites such as Alberobello (35 min) and Matera – a ‘must’ in our opinion – (1 hr 45 min), as well as the beautiful baroque city of Lecce (1hr 20 min) or Otranto (1 hour 45min) or Gallipoli (1 hour 30 min)
Kitchen has all modern amenities, including dishwasher.
Separate dining room with seating for six (6)
Shaded outdoor veranda for al fresco dining. Shaded poolside pergola. And poolside dining area in addition.
WIFI, iPod docking station, kettle, toaster, microwave, iron, ironing board

Recent guest Angela, from the USA, writes in her review:
"Would you like to try something so incredibly different while visiting the Puglia region of Italy? Then TrulliRoccia is the place to stay. Location was perfect to take daily trips to surrounding towns. We really had no idea what to expect. After looking at the photos, we knew it would be beautiful and unique. But once you step through the front door, it brought everything to life. TrulliRoccia was spotless and as well appointed as a home can be."

The property is beautifully presented and tucked away down a country track. Very tranquil and peaceful with plenty to visit nearby.
We really enjoyed the fantastic views to surrounding lush olive groves; the trulli was wonderfully off the beaten track, beautifully quiet as well as scenic. Including the large sculptural cactus and olive trees within the design, the generous landscaping of the garden and pool area made the whole trulli experience comfortable and luxurious. The cabanna bed by the really brilliantly! designed pool was fab and the choice of seating and dining areas were super. Reading in the shade from the olive trees near the pool was idyllic.
Inside and out, the careful mix of vintage & reclaim elements with the contemporary brought out the authentic beauty of the stone. The trulli was well equipped and the style was warm and simple, not cluttered, white where possible on cloistered ceilings with atmospheric lighting. It offered great character and variation and was really well maintained.
The Trulli was a terrific base to enjoy beautiful historic and restaurant filled Cisterano and Martina Franca which we favoured as though pleasantly buzzy they were less touristy than Ostuni. We went to Lecce for the afternoon and evening, loved the hectic Florentine feel and mass of interconnecting historic streets of the old quarter, great shopping for 1950’s retro lights – even managed to bring a sputnik chandelier home….still to reassemble! Sure there is a lot more to discover but it was actually rather hard to drag ourselves away from the pool once we remembered we were on holiday!
Annie and Glenn were great hosts, really liked meeting both of them and getting all sorts of advice on the type of places we would most enjoy, villages, restaurants, beach clubs and so on.
We would definitely recommend for a beautiful escape and cultural local!
Let's start from the beginning ...
The owners were fantastic, great communication an very helpful.
The property... Amazing, quite an secluded. Great building very traditional yet extremely modern. All three rooms were ensuite well maintained an decorated..
The kitchen was well equipped, everything you could need an more including dishwasher, washing machine, fridge/freezer. All the cutlery plates an pots/pans..
Outdoor areas.. Beautiful.. Two dining area's terrace to lounge on an sunbathe. The pool was large. Not heated an being outdoors it inevitably attracted bugs etc. Nevertheless, it was very nice an a great feature. It also had a BBQ an outdoor Wood fired pizza oven that was the best thing I've ever used. Great for socialising outside an cooking an authentic pizza in.
The only thing it needed was AC in the bedrooms. Apart from that it was an amazing place an we'll definitely go back again.
Thank you Glenn & Steve !
I highly recommend it to anyone traveling in a group or with family just wanting to get away from things an enjoy some quality time together.
Would you like to try something so incredibly different while visiting the Puglia region of Italy? Then TrulliRoccia is the place to stay. Location was perfect to take daily trips to surrounding towns. We really had no idea what to expect. After looking at the photos, we knew it would be beautiful and unique. But once you step through the front door, it brought everything to life. TrulliRoccia was spotless and as well appointed as a home can be. We were 3 women in our late 50's, so we each had our own bedroom with an en-suite bathroom. It was perfect! Each morning we would leave to tour a different area of Puglia. By 5 PM, we couldn't wait to drive back to TrulliRoccia. It truly felt like your home away from home. The drive off the main road to the Trullo was a little tricky at first. But after a couple of runs, it was a piece of cake. You just have to be careful. We finally ventured out at night by the end of the week, only to realize we would have rather stayed in our Trullo and cook in our kitchen. The grounds were stunning and so peaceful. We were able to spend a couple of days by the pool. It felt magical and incredibly relaxing. Once we were in for the night, we felt as if we were in this safe cocoon. It felt cool at night inside, but each room had its own heating system, which worked beautifully. The WiFi was an added bonus.
I just learned about Trullis 8 months ago from a friend who told me about the Puglia region. I was lucky enough to find TrulliRoccia online to experience this amazing vacation that I will never, ever forget. Thank you Glenn, Steve, Annie (and Pip)!!!
Perfect place to be away from it all. Great location nicely restored and well equipped. Everything you need is there and the pool is simply great! Don't forget to use the pizza oven. Highly recommended!
We had a lovely two week family holiday in Trulli Roccia. It was exactly as described, clean and really well maintained.
The drive from the main road was a bit of an adventure but worth it as on arrival the Trulli was amazing!
The Trulli has been beautifully and tastefully restored and it is very well equipped. It is in a peaceful idyllic position with spectacular views across the valley. The pool is incredibly well designed with ledges either side within the pool for lounging (well we lounged!). We thoroughly enjoyed picking fresh figs from the garden for breakfast.
We were met by Annie who was welcoming; helpful when we got lost and she provided great restaurant and beach recommendations. We had some delicious meals out and thoroughly enjoyed the local food including the reasonably priced salami and cheese.
Glenn was friendly, always answered queries promptly and politely.
Recommended for a restful holiday.

Also convenient for half-day and day excursions to the baroque jewel of Lecce (1 hr 15 min) and further afield, Otranto and Gallipoli. A 'must' for any traveller to the area who want to explore is MATERA, an stunning piece of history and architecture -- and where Mel Gibson chose to film his 'The Passion of Christ' as it so perfectly felt like old Jerusalem
