The best way to spend an authentic Italian family beach holiday is by renting a luxury home with a private pool in Puglia with access to all the amenities this coastal region in the South of Italy can offer.
Surrounded by two hectares of land, shaded by olive and almond trees, in a context of total privacy, the architect and owner of this charming Apulian villa for rent has reconciled the ancient trulli structure with minimal contemporary furnishings. Lunetta features three bedrooms and two single sofa beds that can accommodate two children.
We are in the heart of the Itria Valley, home of the “trulli”, unique in their kind. The absolute originality of their shape has made the area a world-famous UNESCO heritage. The cone structure of the trulli allowed these homes to keep environments cool during the hottest periods of the year, and they were perfect places also for storing food when refrigerators had not yet been invented. The grey colour of the seven stone cones forming the house testifies to its two hundred years of age.
Located three kilometres from the centre of Ceglie Messapica, Lunetta consists of the main villa featuring two bedrooms and the guest house, which hosts the third bedroom.
The outdoor porch is equipped with two wood-burning ovens and a barbecue, while the laundry room has external access only.
In addition to the swimming pool, there is the bocce court and the ping-pong table. In Italy, the game of bocce has a long tradition (and enjoyed by many people who play at that game even on the sandy beaches).
The lovely antique small town of Ceglie Messapica can be reached in less than five minutes by car. This pleasant town boasts the recognition of "City of art and land of gastronomy" and is among the oldest city centres of Puglia, having been founded in the fifteenth century BC. Surrounded by trulli, centuries-old olive groves and karst caves, this characteristic village offers must-see restaurants, shops, supermarkets and an authentic vision of typical life in the villages of Puglia.

Comments: Our stay at villa Lunetta was a great experience across the board! It’s a charming well-kept property offering all you need for a relaxing stay amidst the olive trees and picturesque villages nearby. You can feel in every detail the owner’s pride and dedication to make guests feel welcome. Also the concierge service was outstanding! Michele gave us plenty of great tips, made arrangements and was always stand by without being intrusive. Our 14 year old twins loved their stay in this authentic Trulli and all its facilities. So no negatives to mention except that my 1.93m tall husband did bump his head a few times, given some tiny doors & spaces. But that didn’t spoil the overall fun at all, not even for him. ;-)"
