La Serra is a recently restored complex of ancient trulli, located on a 5-minute drive from the charming old towns of Ostuni and Ceglie Messapica. This unique property perfectly combines the traditional structure of the trulli with the contemporary style: original old stone walls, an unique glass cube with a olive tree inside, furniture of modern design and luxury standard materials for a relaxing holiday in a minimalist atmosphere.
Indoor, the three bedrooms are interconnected through a network of short tunnels connecting the cone structures luxuriously furnished. Outdoor, the villa offers a private 20mt long salt water swimming pool surrounded by olive, fig and fruit trees, a quarry-stone barbeque and wood-burning stone oven, as well as a vegetable garden.
The property is set in the Valle d’Itria valley, not too far from Alberobello, Locorotondo and Martina Franca. Also, at a short drive you can find lovely beaches, both along the Adriatic coast and the Ionian Sea, offering stretches of sandy bays and natural reserves.
La Serra is the perfect choice for a relaxing holiday with family and is highly recommended for anyone wishing to explore the variety, beauty and charm of Puglia and live a truly magical experience.

"Lovely modernised Trulli in a tranquil setting of olive groves. Some beautifully executed brutalist post industrial touches including the swimming pool. Only 10/15 mins from Ostuni which is beautiful and has lots of bars and restaurants. Martina, the manager, was a fantastic bonus. We especially liked the breakfasts which she arranged for us."

"La Serra was a beautiful setting for our first trip to the Puglia region of Italy. It was situated only 10 minutes between two lovely towns (Ostuni and Ceglie Messapica). This is a lovely, private and serene home to spread out and relax between site seeing. Our host was very friendly and communicative and we took advantage of some of the services they offer for convenience such as grocery shopping. The house itself had countless areas to unfold; on the patios, by the pool, in the outdoor lounge and in the Olive Tree atrium. We enjoyed cooking in the kitchen which was well equipped and there were ample linens and towels available for the bathrooms and pool. This is a rustic and beautiful house that stays surprisingly cool in the heat and humidity. The pool was a dream and there were lots of fun “moments” for kids; trampoline, swings, etc. Overall gorgeous and highly recommended. "
