A special love nest exclusive to Long Travel, Trullo Zingaro is a boutique trulli with a great pool, in the countryside of Cisternino, Puglia. We can’t believe how spacious this trullo is for just two people and how much land it has surrounding it, like a mini villa.

Impressive double gates and a sweeping driveway set the scene for one of Cisternino’s most romantic trulli. Unbelievably spacious for only two people, the owners could easily have put another bedroom and shower room into Trullo Zingaro, but decided to make it something spectacular for two – and have succeeded. From the moment you see the “Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers” stone steps, leading up to the front terrace, you will see that Trullo Zingaro is really fantastic and romantic.

In a lovely elevated location, just over 2km from Cisternino, Trullo Zingaro is semi-detached from Trullo Mandorla by about one and a half metres of thick stone wall. Long Travel guests’ privacy is assured, with the use of impressive dry stone walls, landscaping and tree planting, and by providing totally separate driveways, parking areas and outside spaces, which are also opposite-facing. They are actually very separate and private from one another. With lovely views, and set in two and a half acres, they dominate the landscape and are admired by all.

Trullo Zingaro is absolutely blessed with areas to sit out and enjoy the sun or follow the shade. The top terrace is in two parts. One part overlooks the cascading garden and grounds, with their mature Mediterranean trees and shrubs. The other has its own beautiful old olive tree, so is a perfect spot for relaxing in the shade. The lower one, with a built-in barbecue, has similar views and, although large, has been put into a wonderful “nook” to ensure maximum privacy.

A path winds its way to the “hidden” pool, shared only with the boutique Trullo Mandorla. As if there in secret, the pool sits, in sheltered seclusion and privacy, behind tall dry stone walls, but is open at one end to enjoy the lovely panorama- absolute heaven!

A very special example of a self-catering trullo, the characterful interior has masses of exposed stone and the décor picks up the natural colours of ivories and rusts. The living area of Trullo Zingaro is extremely generous and quite open-plan. Creamy-white local ceramics and furniture give it a superbly tasteful ambience – a lightness of touch only possible in a trullo for couples, where we know that appreciative guests will look after it well.

This is a dream of a place – a very special trullo indeed. The trullo is even well-stocked with wine from the neighbour’s vineyard (and an honesty box) – ridiculously reasonably priced, it has proved to be very popular. Another highlight is the olive oil – extra virgin, cold press and as organic as it gets, it is Pugliese oil at its best.

Customer Review

“Trullo Zingaro is everything we knew it would be. We will be back. The square and around was very busy late into the night – singers, dancing, fire eaters, entertainment of all kinds. Lovely atmosphere and all ages. Café culture at its best. Thanks to all the team at Long Travel and their support in Italy. Sandro and others are fabulous.” Denise & Nick, Isle of Wight
