Trullo Melograno is a unique self-catering villa, or trullo, in the countryside of Cisternino in Puglia. Exclusive to Long Travel, we love the tranquillity and the quality.

Particularly suitable for adults and sleeping up to 4, with two double en-suite bedrooms, and a shared pool, Trullo Melograno is a special unique trulli – magnificent and comfortable. Detached and next to Long Travel’s other exclusive trulli, Trullo Noce, in a typically lovely Pugliese rural location, it has a very spacious open-plan living area making it the ideal self-catering property on your stay in Puglia. Of extremely good quality, it feels “like a home from home” and the interior décor is fantastic.

Approached down a long track, Trullo Melograno is very private and guests constantly marvel at the stillness, peace and tranquillity. Outside, the lovely split-level piazzale, with its built-in barbecue, affords guests the best of both worlds – plenty of space to enjoy the sun, and lots of room to relax under the large old olive tree. Overlooking extensive grounds, with a variety of fruit trees and majestic, mature olive trees, this is a stunning trullo and feels very romantic.

Landscaped into the grounds (about 50m away) and discreetly hidden by dry stone walls, is Trullo Melograno’s fabulous swimming pool. Shared only with Trullo Noce, and in an idyllic location, with spectacular views reaching far into the distance, this is surely a slice of paradise.

The neighbour’s stock of wine (and honesty box) – ridiculously reasonably priced, has also proved to be very popular – very popular, indeed! Another big hit is the olive oil – extra virgin, cold press and as organic as it gets, it is Pugliese oil at its best. Note that there is an open stone staircase, at the front of the Trullo Melograno – a traditional and attractive feature giving access to the roof. Therefore, a possible hazard for over-adventurous guests!

Customer Review

 “Our first time in Southern Italy for our honeymoon. We wanted somewhere sunny, quiet and relaxing and we definitely got it. Trullo Melograno is incredible – so well done out, beautiful scenery and just the most peaceful surroundings.” Sarah & David Manning, Sheffield

“Our first visit to Southern Italy and we’ve had a lovely time. The people we’ve met have been fantastically friendly and helpful. The trullo is marvellous – beautiful outside and in, with everything we’ve needed. The pool area with the view is spectacular and it’s all so quiet and peaceful. A fantastic break – great food and wine in a truly lovely setting.” Vivienne, Timothy, Hannah & Rebecca, Altrincham

 “Trullo Melograno is stunning. We walked from room to room, more and more amazed and thrilled – wonderfully restful and cool. Scenery is spectacular and wild flowers just beautiful. We wouldn’t change a thing – it’s just perfect ” Lawrence & Hazel, Market Harborough

“Trullo Melograno is truthfully the best self-catering accommodation we have ever stayed in.Thank you for everything. Long may Long Travel continue. ” Jan & Peter, Leics

 “We have been visiting Italy since we were students in the 70’s and we have enjoyed ourselves on this visit as much as the first. In fact we had ideas of squatting in the trullo and refusing to move out. ” Bill & Avril, Ayshire

 “Coming for 2 weeks this time we thought we’d have plenty of time to visit all the places we missed first time and still have days around the pool. This was NOT the case so I’m happy to say that we’ll HAVE to come again. One of our best holidays ever. Relaxing?!/busy/interesting/wall to wall sunshine and spent in such wonderful accommodation! Totally happy and completely satisfied. PS Special thanks to all at Long Travel for their attention to detail. ” Pat & Tony, Codsall

“A memorable week at Trullo Melograno. Puglia exceeded our expectations and the trullo has all we’d hoped for and more. We thoroughly enjoyed all local produce and the wine in the trullo while watching stunning sunsets. Fabulous week. Thank you so much. ” Caroline & John, Andrew & Sian, Wimborne

 “Trullo fantastic. Pool sublime. We helped ourselves to rosemary, figs and prickly pears and enjoyed fantastic local produce and wine. Alfresco lunches under our olive tree on the terrace superb. A week is too short – don’t want to go home. ” Ray & Tina, Upminster and Pam & Geoff, Billericay

“It took us a while to wind down to the Southern Italian lifestyle, but we’ve definitely gone native now! You simply can’t beat this combination of charm and real life. ” Sally & Lynne, Preston

“A typical day was 50 lengths of the pool to get the weight off; then an extended lunch of pasta, vino, cheese and olive oil, to put it all back on again; an afternoon of reading (i.e. snoozing!); followed by more great food and wine. ” Paul & Maria, Wallington
