    Do you love traveling but are disappointed when you stay in anonymous places without personality? To experience something out of the ordinary, choose Trullo Merita... a holiday here is worth the trip to Puglia!

    The dive into this experience takes place from entering the holiday home, located 7 km from Ceglie Messapica and Cisternino: go beyond a path dotted with flowers and butterflies to immerse yourself in a wide farmyard filled with light, which is overlooked by a fascinating group of trulli and lamias, and you will be catapulted into another world ... welcome to the magical Valle d'Itria!

    The trulli were designed as small, simple and modest dwellings. The owner, originally from Ceglie Messapica, decided to conform to the structure’s original simplicity and, while equipping her holiday home with a fully equipped indoor and outdoor kitchen, a grill-lover-proof barbecue, very comfortable bathrooms and a 12x6 mt pool, she maintained its bond with the past, a past she reinvented and wisely rethought for her family Summer holidays in her beloved Puglia. Her aim was to accurately restore the buildings, with the right materials and techniques and with the traditional use of the trulli in mind: she added practicalities and comfort, guaranteeing the structure’s authenticity.

    The plunge into the past binds perfectly to the taste given by the owner, able to combine, as few can do, vintage forniture, contemporary design, custom-made elements made by local artisans, lights that do not follow fashions, palette of colors and fabrics with floral motifs that enhance the rurality of this corner of Puglia.

    At Trullo Merita design is like an old friend, but not only ... the highlight of this vacation home is the collection of paintings: at Trullo Merita you will be welcomed by several works exhibited in every room... when you say the art of 'hospitality! And if art is not enough for you, here is a choice of books able to feed even the most avid readers. You will read them while relaxing in a hammock in the shade of a centuries-old olive tree in the quiet of controra, the Apulian siesta, or to hypnotize your little ones at bedtime under a cone-shaped roof.

    Trullo Merita is not the usual destination, it is a private collection transformed into an exclusive holiday home that tells the passions of the owners. Reserve it for your family holidays and you will find yourself staying in an unforgettable environment in the heel of Italy.
    Your stay will be even more intense and captivating thanks to the proximity of Ceglie Messapica, the less touristy village of Valle D’Itria but the one with the strongest gourmet soul, a par excellence gastronomic stop-over where you will taste the earthy Puglia.

    Have we given you enough reasons to plan your out of the ordinary holiday in the land of the trulli? If you want to discover how unique and fairy-tale the Puglia triangle between Bari, Brindisi and Taranto is, Trullo Merita is the right place for you and your children.
