BFB's Overview

This truly trendy trullo villa (sleeps 6-8) combines amazing original features with a fresh and funky interior which is as inspiring for grown ups as it is fun for kids.



The owners, the Massey family from London, transformed Trullo Fico in 2009, really doing an amazing job as the property had been empty for thirty years! Distinctive original features such as the conical ‘bee-hive’ barrelled ceilings and archways were restored to become focal points of the interior design, with striking modern art and stylish soft furnishings looking great against the rustic whitewashed walls. A family themselves the Massey's have incorporated all the mod cons and thoughtful added extras required for a totally relaxing family holiday.



Tardis-like, there’s more and more to Trullo Fico around every corner. Through one archway you’re in the 1950’s snug, complete with a cosy log fire, Danish leather sofa and retro teak armchair, a book library, flat screen TV with movie library and a 500w Teac Hi-Fi with digital radio, CD player and iPod dock. Turn through another arch and you could be in one of the three double bedrooms with designer touches including an Eames rocking chair, Tom Dixon Jack Lamp and Kartell Componabili bedside cabinets.



Of course, located in the sunny Puglia region of southern Italy, the outside is every bit as important as the interior and Trullo Fico is just as enticing on this front too. The villa is set in 3-acres of grounds which are filled with olive and fig trees,the latter of which guests are welcome to pick when ripe as the perfect accompaniment to the tasty local cheeses. There’s an attractive white stone patio area with plenty of loungers and space for making most of the sun. The inviting private pool (unfenced) is bound to be a big hit with the whole family. It's perfect for cooling off and there's even a bubbling jacuzzi section to makes it extra special. A funky cushion benched seating area with gazebo provides welcome shade in the day and a pretty spot for pre-dinner drinks in the evening overlooking the garden. For alfresco dining there's a covered outdoor dining area, with seating for eight complete with a BBQ and hidden speakers to listen to your favourite tunes on balmy Italian evenings, piped through from the high spec music system indoors.




Accommodation Overview



Trullo Fico sleeps 6-8 guests, in three, air conditioned, double bedrooms plus pull-out beds/cots available on request. Overlooking the patio and pool, the sunny 'white bedroom' is the largest, with a double bed, triple wardrobe and antique chest of drawers, an Eames rocking chair and Tom Dixon Jack Lamp. The bedroom next door can be arranged as a twin or double, with fun, colourful decor making it suitable for children but also a retro feel that appeals to adults, with Kartell Componabili bedside cabinets and a double wardrobe. The third bedroom, known as the 'orange bedroom', has views to the rear of the house, with funky artwork, double bed, mirrored bedside tables, double wardrobe and an ensuite wetroom. Besides the bedrooms, Trullo Fico has a second wetroom, two reception rooms, a well equipped kitchen and a utility room with a washing machine.


The villa is just as well equipped for off season stays as it is for summer breaks. There's instant central heating, a log fire and double glazing.


Daily cleaning and catering can be arranged on request.

Location Information

Located in the ‘heel’ of Italy, Puglia has miles of unspoilt coastline along the Adriatic and Ionian Seas, both an easy drive away. This region is covered in olive groves and vineyards, pretty towns and interesting sites. The food is delicious with fresh seafood, fantastic antipasti and wonderful pizzas readily on offer, all of which can be washed down with great local wines.


Trullo Fico is 5km from wonderful shops, eateries and bars which populate baroque Ostuni and 'off-the-beaten track' Ceglie Messapica. The towns are situated on top of a hill with beautiful views across the Itria Valley, with historic centres dating back centuries. All have wonderful old cobbled streets and fascinating architecture, so when all that wandering has worked up an appetite, you will be well rewarded with plenty of the local delicacies in the many local restaurants. Ceglie has a supermarket stocked with all the basic groceries, but there's much more exciting wares to be sampled at the Ostuni market every Saturday, from 7am until 1pm. For special evenings out the villa manager Mimmo is very well connected with the local restaurants and can assist guests with choosing the best places to eat and making reservations. There is a wonderful Michelin starred restaurant called Al Fornello Da Ricci five minutes from the property.


The closest beaches are at Ostuni and Torre Canne, and are just a short drive away. There are public beaches are free to access and some have cafes and restaurants backing onto them. There are also miles of ‘lidos’ – managed areas of beach where, for a small entrance fee, there's access to family friendly services such (covered parking, loos and showers, bars and restaurants, umbrellas and sunbeds for hire, and lifeguards). Pilone, Lido Bizzaro, Lido Boscoverde and Lido Morelli are all excellent beaches. The owners have also found a couple of beach clubs, from the very swanky to a more budget conscious - great places with lots of kids activities, restaurants and often a pool as well as the beach which they will happily recommend.The nature reserve at Torre Guaceto has a long sandy beach and some great shallows which are perfect for small children to play in. Between June and September there are guided snorkelling trips on Thursdays and Saturdays.


Getting There: The villa is 40 minutes drive from Brindisi airport, 75 minutes from Bari and about three hours drive from Naples. Car hire is essential.

Who owns this place?

My name is Mel Massey and I own Trullo Fico. I have two boys who are eleven and eight. The ethos I have tried to incorporate at the villa is that it is tiring and stressful researching, booking and preparing for holidays, so when you arrive, you just want to relax and recharge immediately. Fully equipped, the house has been designed and furnished with style, total relaxation and comfort in mind - sleeping in Egyptian cotton sheets and feather duvets on quality mattresses; soaking under sleek chrome power-showers, relaxing on outside sofas, hammock, double rocker sunbeds or deckchairs by the private pool, enjoying music outside and in, entertaining kids with the kids pool/jacuzzi, trampoline, table tennis table, ipod loaded with music, DVD library and toys, well-stocked welcome pack so you don't have to dash off to the supermarket. See you for yourself...

What do they love about it?

We loved Puglia from the moment we set eyes on it, the amazing architecture, history, culture, charming people, wonderful food and wine. These elements, in a beautiful rustic setting dominated by olive trees and still that innate style Italy is famous for! The fact that tourism is low-key and less commercial is particularly appealing, especially in the peak tourist season. A search for the annual rude postcard for my brother drew a blank, something I was very pleased about! We fell in love with Trullo Fico for its history and location. It is a traditional, original stone Saracen Trullo with two newer lamia (vaulted rooms) attached either side. The simplicity of the materials belies the craftsmanship within the building. The stones have definitely got lots of stories to tell.

What do the kids love about it?

Kids will love Trullo Fico because there is:
... a private pool for swimming, jumping and fun
... a kid's pool for splashing fun which turns into a jacuzzi with lots of bubbles
... a table tennis table for winning
...trampoline for jumping
.....basket ball for slam dunking
... tree rope for swinging ...
... over 90 trees for climbing
... olives, figs, almonds and peaches for picking
... three acres for exploring
... ride on toys for driving
... movies for chilling
…board games for challenging
...tunes for crazy dancing
...acres (3) of grounds for intrepid exploring
