Romantic trullo with pool near Ostuni – Surrounded by scented lavender and rosemary bushes, this charming trullo sits in a lovely rural area of Murgia (also known as ‘Trulli land’), just on the edge of the whitewashed hilltop village of Cisternino and close to the picturesque cycling route running along the Apulian Aqueduct across olive groves and forested hills.
Simply furnished in Southern-Italian, country style, this trullo offers comfortable accommodation with incredible character; wardrobes carved into whitewashed walls, vaulted ceilings, open fireplaces and conic roofs tiled with grey slates are just some of the original features of this remarkable property. A pergola faces the lovely pool to ensure relaxed outdoor dining on balmy Apulian summer evenings in this idyllic setting. A stone’s throw away from Trullo Profumato runs one of Apulia’s most striking cycling routes that will take you across the sweeping hills of Val d’Itria and Murgia, through an iconic landscape of olive groves, oak forests, almond and prickly pear trees and dry stone walls all the way down to the southernmost tip of Puglia, where the Adriatic and the Ionic Seas meet.
More relaxing pursuits may include visits to nearby Cisternino, Martina Franca, Ceglie Messapica, the 'White City' of Ostuni, Locorotondo and the UNESCO World’s Heritage Site of Alberobello. Stroll along the steep, narrow lanes in any of these villages to discover the rich culture of this land, its unique architecture, its flavours and gastronomic delicacies. An array of pavement cafes, piazze with pergola restaurants and local craft shops will come alive after the afternoon ‘siesta’ and stay open well into the summer nights.
