Ray & Annie's romantic bolthole, a boutique trullo & amazing pool, great views. Wow! Close to all of our hearts for its enchanting location Trullo Noce is the perfect romantic hideaway. Guests say that it really brings out the romance in them, so.......say no more!
Our own "real gem", Trullo Noce is idyllic. Particularly spacious for only two and quite open-plan, it is beautifully furnished, has a somewhat designer feel, and is indeed an absolute jewel. Detached and next to Trullo Melograno, it is in an equally rural spot, with spectacular views over the surrounding countryside, to the wooded hillside beyond, and the same stunning pool.
Outside, there is a built-in barbecue and a large piazzale, which overlooks a small valley of mature olive trees and a variety of fruit trees, terraced into the landscape. Guests have the choice of sitting in the sun or relaxing in the shade of Trullo Noce's ancient olive trees, and are welcome to help themselves to any fruit and nuts in season.
Trullo Noce has its own path to the fabulous swimming pool, which is landscaped into the grounds (about 50m away) and discreetly hidden by dry stone walls. Shared only with Trullo Melograno, with stunning views reaching far into the distance, this is surely a slice of paradise.
Our stock of our neighbour's wine (and honesty box) - ridiculously reasonably priced, has also proved to be very popular - very popular, indeed! Another big hit is our olive oil - extra virgin, cold press and as organic as it gets, it is Pugliese oil at its best.
Past guests write of "getting hooked " on Trullo Noce and of "quickly falling under its spell ". It is certainly magical and a real romantic hideaway. As guests Adele & David, from Burnley, wrote, "You could be the most famous person in the world and remain anonymous here - no paparazzi, just sublime serenity and spectacular scenery! " Its glorious setting is particularly popular with honeymooners or any couple searching for a romantic holiday. No-one ever wants to leave!
Note that there is an open stone staircase, at the front of Trullo Noce - a traditional and attractive feature giving access to the roof. Therefore, a possible hazard for over-adventurous guests!

"We can’t believe how this wonderful week has flown past! We arrived in this little oasis nursing very high stress levels. After a couple of days in this beautiful trullo, so well-equipped for a comfortable and relaxing stay, we are completely unwound – with the aid of the fabulous pool, of course." Sandy & Tony, Bedford

"Trullo Noce really is a little trullo-shaped slice of heaven! As ever, the trullo is perfect to the smallest details, together with the excellent Long Travel service and the great staff on the ground here. The pool is tremendous – it’s a real privilege to have such a beautiful pool in such a wonderful location. Ray & Annie – you have made this place so fabulous that you may have to have us forcibly removed at the end of the week." Susan & Russell, London

"Trullo Noce is an absolute delight – very beautifully restored, the pool is superb and the setting is fantastic. Thank you Ray & Annie for wonderful memories." Jeremy & Jean, Hastings
"Somehow I expected Sandro to be a small older Italian man…not the handsome man he is!! And, Trullo Noce is better in real life than the brochure. We are going home relaxed and happy and already flicking through the LT brochure to see where we can spend our next adventure. Thank you – it’s been wonderful." April & Marcus, Horsham
"Our 2nd visit to Trullo Noce this year and as enjoyable as the first. We’re sure there’ll be a 3rd visit." Rosita & Joseph, Croydon

Alison & Di, Lancaster

"What an amazing trullo this is! Everything possible is here, loved the pool. Sheer joy to sit on lovely terrace, enjoy the view and lose oneself in the ambience of the countryside. " Catherine & Walt, Oxted, Surrey
"Trullo Noce is perfect, location is perfect, people are perfect. My tip is to completely let go and sink into slow way of life of the Mezzogiorno - just sit under the olive tree with a glass of wine and listen to the silence. Perfect peace. PS I told you, Annie, I'd do my best to come up with a complaint - it's difficult to fit all the books in the bookcase. Will that do? " Thelma & Geoff, Fleet
