Swimming Pool

Trullo Oasis is “trulli” an oasis of relaxation and privacy. An harmonious atmosphere with a defined Latin American style blending traditional Pugliese trulli and lamia buildings and rustic mediterranean gardens with co-ordinated soft interior furnishings.

The driveway crawls gently behind Trullo Oasis to private parking where guests can offload their luggage. From here you can already catch a hint of blue off in the distance from crystal clear pool waters, a sure invitation to dip toes cautiously into the water’s edge.


The property consists of three separate buildings. The main trullo (with an unusual conical shaped roof) is the master bedroom with sitting area, private ensuite shower room and a single room for a small child. There are also two lamia buildings (converted small barns), one of which is a double bedroom with private ensuite. This bedroom is linked via a covered gasebo to the kitchen dining suite.

Trullo Oasis is ideal for two couples or a family with older children happy to share a bed.

Property Composition

Here you will find the trulli to the right, a structure typical of Puglia but unusual to new visitors to the area, and also the archetypal “lamia”, to the left. A gazebo unites the two lamie formed by wood beams and chestnut branches, offering shade from the midday sun and a suitably restful area to relax and dine at even fall.

Family & Friends

Trullo Oasis, sleeps a maximum of four adults and is most suitable for two couples or a young family ready to explore nearby Ceglie Messapica or the celebrated Valle d’Itria towns of Cisternino, Locorotondo, Martina Franca and Ostuni. When not adventuring beyond Trullo Oasis, the poolside is the perfect invitation to do absolutely nothing, browse the internet using the wi-fi installation, survey the countryside from the roof terrace or laze in the shade of the gazebo.

Place to visit

Trullo Oasis is located in Ceglie Messapica. Ceglie Messapica is a foodies delight as it is not only one of the restaurant capitals of Italy but is also host to a Cooking School and Ceglie Food Festival run in August every year.

As the capital of gastronomy, Ceglie Messapica has a rich territory surrounding the town and the restaurant owners pride themselves in growing their own vegetables, producing their own special dishes direct from the rich earth just as fishermen on the coast supply the seafood restaurants, Ceglie’s restaurants are supplied from the soil.

Beyond Ceglie Messapica you have scope to visit many of the surrounding towns and villages which are a point of interest historically and esthetically as many have attained the title of the most beautiful villages in Italy, such as Locorotondo and Cisternino. A visit to Puglia should include the UNESCO site Alberobello.

Further afield of Ceglie Messapica there are many interesting coastal towns such as Lecce on the Adriatic Sea or Gallipoli on the Ionian side of Puglia.
