Welcome to our little piece of Paradise!

Here in Puglia we have found what we think is the original Italy. The old olive trees, the beautiful landscape, the good food and the always sunny and warm weather. Here we welcome you at our contry house  TERRA e MARE, situated in ancient trulli buidings nearby Cisternino, Ostuni, and the airports of Bari and Brindisi.

Trullies

Our lovely Contryhouse includes a group of Trulli and Lamie houses. Careful restoration work has permitted us to maintain their architectual characteristics intact.

Terra e mare 

The complex boasts six, non smoking, bedrooms all with private bathrooms. The bedrooms are connected to a common living-room area.

Puglia

The Country house is situated in a beautyful valley with olive and almond groves, not far from bigger cities and beaches

What exactly is a Trullo?

 

They are unique architectual constructions, made out of rough stone quarried locally and built in an overlapping way without using any mortar but just simple knowhow and tools.  The structure is composed of walls up to one metre wide, above which a conic roof rises, covered with “chiancarelle” – large narrow stone slabs positioned in a circular fashion.  This type of construction maintains the interior fresh during the summer and warm in the winter.


Our complex includes a group of Trulli and Lamie houses. Careful restoration work has permitted us to maintain their architectual characteristics intact, offering a natural fusion of architecture and nature.  At the centre of the complex is a swimming pool, like a colourful meeting point – with the blue water combining with the green olive trees and the red soil.

The complex boasts six, non smoking, bedrooms all with private bathrooms.  The bedrooms are connected to a common living-room area, ideal for reading a good book or sipping some good coffee.  

Thanks to its large windows the breakfast room offers a magnificent panoramic view of the surrounding valley and the complex, divided up into olive groves, almond groves, orchards and a kitchen garden.  

The wonderful swimming pool, equipped with beach umbrellas and deckchairs is the ideal starting point for walks around the underlying terracing.

 

 

 

Hi!

 

Sun, land and sea are all united to the desire of discovering the ancient art of living in the ‘Pugliese way’, which have encouraged us to change our everyday lives with the quest of past rhythms and flavours - which are the traditional foundations maintaining alive the true idea of Italy.

Albeit with differing cultural backgrounds and personal experiences we have created with this complex a fusion of our ideas and made our dream come true.


Together we welcome you to our home!
Katrine, Giuliano & Isabella (and the 2 cats Robin Hood & Mario Ballotelli and Clea the small dog)
