We had a total of 7 weeks at Trullo Melograno
The lovely trullo and beautiful pool were thoroughly enjoyed by
us all! A beautiful home to share with friends and family, sad our
stay has come to and end.
We've had a great week at Trullo Melograno
The children thoroughly enjoyed the swimming pool and playing in
the beautifully kept garden! Martina Franca is beautiful , we also
ventured to Polignano a Mare. Had some great meals in town -
Osteria del Coco Pazzo, I Templari (amazing food), and for a change
Shoshin Japanese restaurant! We would also recommend trying a cafe

A truly beautiful villa and pool with amazing outdoor space
We stayed at Trullo Melograno as a family of four, including two
children aged 8 and 5. The villa is nicely tucked away and only a
short drive from the centre of Martina Franca - a beautiful town!
The villa had everything we could ask for during our week stay, our
children absolutely loved the swimming pool and playing table
football, table tennis and making pizzas in the outdoor pizza oven!
Jackie met us for check in and check out; she has a wealth of
knowledge about the local area as well as the wider area and we
were provided with lots of really useful information from start to
finish. We absolutely loved the outdoor space at this villa
compared to other villas we have stayed in. Everything inside and
out is immaculately kept and it feels like a home from home (again
a huge plus in comparison to other places we have stayed).
Hospitality here was exceptional - thank you for making our holiday
memorable and we definitely hope to return!
Prachtig logement in een al even prachtige regio
Prachtig logement in een al even prachtige regio We verbleven
een week in deze mooie en goed ingerichte trullo met mooie tuin en
zwembad. We kwamen aan midden in de nacht, maar dat was geen
probleem voor Jackie die heel beschikbaar is en zorgt voor alle
mogelijke uitleg. De streek biedt ontzettend veel mogelijkheden tot
uitstapjes. Enige minpuntje: de trullo ligt op het platteland,
rustig en mooi, maar het is toch wel even rijden om brood en andere
boodschappen bij te halen.

Your own paradise in Puglia
From first meeting Jackie to take us to the property until we left, she was a true professional. We arrived late at night, & Jackie had provided us a welctome pack, with the essentials wine, beer & groceries. The property was well maintained & clean, & had everything you needed. We ate out most days, but the kitchen was sufficient enough, to conjure up a few meals. We used it as a base to explore the area, & did over 1000km exploring different places. We had to hire a bigger car, as we had children & cases, which did make it interesting to say the least in some of the narrow streets. I have driven in Sardinia a few times, but this a different ball game. Italian drivers can be very aggressive in both their overtaking, & pulling out of junctions. After the first day, I just started to drive like them, & seemed to fit in! They don’t follow the speed limits, so you will be flashed to indicate they are going to overtake you. Plenty of places to eat, things don’t really start going till after 9pm. Parking can also be a pain, so factor that in Martina Franca, Lecce of Locorotondo for instance. We had a great last night meal in Locotorondo with friends at “140 Gradi” I would advise to book, they are on FB, just use Google Translate to send message. The holiday can be whatever you make it, stay at the trulli, relax & chill or get out & see some of the magnificent sights of this region. I would highly recommend this trulli, & thank you to the owners Paola & I think Pina? & also to Jackie, who also helped us when we got lost, on only our 2nd day.
Grazie per averci fatto fermare nei tuoi trulli,

A beautiful family villa - Trullo Melograno
Trullo Melograno is a perfect villa for a family with space and grass around the large pool for toddlers or teenagers. The veranda is perfect to shade from the sun for long lunches and relaxation. The pool is a lovely size and not shallow like some. It is a perfect base where lazy days at the villa are as enjoyable as visiting this part of Italy. There is a table tennis table which is fun and other toys for children. It is semi rural so you are not on top of anyone else and yet a short drive to the beautiful town of Martina Franca. The property is very clean and spacious. We stay in villa's every year and not all are as well maintained and presented. If you are a family who like to have a base, explore the area and drink in the culture and experience Puglia, then this is absolutely perfect. The location allows access to both coasts and the main town centres such as Ostuni that you should visit. Google maps or similar are a major advantage for getting about because you would need a very detailed map without it. Having said that, signposting is good and you soon get used to the routes. The beach bars and restaurants are surprisingly reasonably priced and you will find everyone is very friendly and welcoming. We would also recommend Pizzeria Jonny in Martina Franca. Genuine authentic Italian serving quality food. Lovely people and service. Jackie from Puglia Holiday Rentals provides a personal service that you do not find with other villa's. We were met on arrival and departure and she provided support via mail and whatsapp in a way you only normally experience with a package tour rep. We felt help was in easy reach and though we only asked a couple of questions, support was instant. We fully recommend Trullo Melograno and we would stay here again.
Very good and easy process booking, professional arrival service, quick checkout, prompt aftercare/deposit refund.

Fantastic Villa, great location, first class service
We stayed at Trullo Melograno for a week in September had a brilliant time. The villa is located near a lot of stunningly beautiful towns and only about 35-45 to the beach each side. The villa is every bit as stunning as the photos and well-equipped. The outdoor space is very nice and great for relaxing by the pool, which is a really good size.
The owners left us some food as we had got in late and so had enough to feed us, but Jackie kindly had also bought us some things. Jackie provided first class service and gets what it means to offer high quality hospitality and support - always there to answer questions after the booking and on hand to offer advice once we got there. Thank you.
If you use these guys, you won't fail to have a fantastic time. The first people we will get onto on our return to Puglia.

Great value for money with a wonderful pool.
This villa is set in a delightfully landscaped garden which is a little oasis in this rustic part of Puglia, and the combination of electric gating, and other security features made the property feel very safe to us as a family. The pool is simply excellent, as is the veranda, and many a relaxed hour was spent either in the water or under the veranda's welcome shade. The house is very comfortable with most mod-cons, and whilst not what would be termed luxurious, is really excellent value for money. Also the welcome pack of fresh local produce left by the owners was a very nice touch and much appreciated. The location is very convenient both for shorter trips to Martina Franca and local supermarkets, but also to either coast and the pleasant Adriatic beaches. We were very impressed with Jackie and her efficiency and attention to detail, and we were able to enjoy our holiday with the reassurance that if there were any issues Jackie would be on the case immediately.
Amazing Trullo, great location and perfect pool
Trullo Melograno - Traditional trullo just outside of Martina Franca. great location for visiting many villages and in-between both seas so you can try both set of beaches. All amenities you could need, even with small children to keep them entertained. peaceful and safe location and the the outdoor areas are pristine. We would definitely recommend and will be revisiting hopefully soon.
Piękny oryginalny domek Trulli w cichej okolicy
Świetne miejsce w samym środku Pugli - wszędzie blisko (Bari, Monopoli, Brindisi, Ostuni, Lecce, itp.). Cisza i spokój, fajny basen z nocnym podświetleniem. Domek bazuje na oryginalnym Trulli i jest wyposażony w prawie wszystko czego potrzeba (za wyjątkiem ekspresu do kawy - choćby przelewowego, jest jedynie kawiarka), sześć miejsc do spania, dwie łazienki, klimatyzacja i duże zacienione miejsce na auta. Dodatkową atrakcją jest piec do pizzy na drewno (przesympatyczny właściciel Pino na naszą prośbę dostarczył nam je osobiście) - polecamy spróbować wykonać własną pizze (gotowe ciasto dostępne w sklepach lokalnych) ! Na powitanie czekał na nas kosz owoców / własna oliwa z oliwek / lokalny chleb / worek lodu w kostkach i zgrzewka mineralnej wody :) bardzo serdecznie dziękujemy ! Pani Jackie była bardzo pomocna i cierpliwie odpowiadała na nasze pytania drogą mailową, jak i odbierała od nas telefon (na miejscu) w sytuacjach pilnych o różnych porach dnia i nocy - również bardzo dziękujemy ! Jednym słowem - polecamy wszystkim to miejsce :)

Great Villa, superb location and amazing pool
This is an outstanding villa. Having travelled extensively in Europe we can honestly say this is the best place we have stayed in. The pool and outside area is beautiful and the hosts have thought of everything to make your stay enjoyable. Our five year old especially loved the pool, table football and basket ball hoop. Inside you have all the equipment you need and the dishwasher is a nice touch. The beds are comfy too. Jackie the manager went over and above what was required of her especially when we messed up our car hire and ended up 4 hours late, she offered and went to the supermarket for us and got dinner and wine as we would arrive too late to sort it out for ourselves. The surrounding area, town, scenery are amazing and the villa is in a good location to visit all the surrounding areas. I recommend this place highly.

Beautiful trullo with everthing you can dream of
We had such a lovely time in Trullo Melograno, beautiful Trullo with everything you can dream of. The garden and plants are so well tended, just didn't imagine a lawn in Puglia!
What a fantastic experience.
Thank you to Jackie for all her help and assistance and to Pino and Paola for allowing us to stay in their fab home.
We love Puglia, plenty to see and do, superb food and wine. What more do you want for a holiday!
We will be back
Paradise in Puglia? Most definitely!
What a wonderful place to stay! Trullo Melograno has everything needed for a great holiday – ample space, great facilities, super pool, cool shady areas and excellent location.
Jackie, of Puglia Holiday Rentals, was exceptionally helpful, giving great advice and information about the property and surrounding area both before and during our holiday - nothing was too much trouble for her and we are very grateful to Jackie. Many thanks also to the lovely owners, Pino and Paola, for allowing us to stay in their home and for being so welcoming - the baskets of home grown produce and local products were fabulous!
The main reason for visiting this area was to attend the wedding of our niece - a truly amazing couple of days which will be remembered forever as our “Italian Wedding Experience.”
However, this area of Italy is beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed spending the rest of our time there meandering along the narrow alleyways of places such as Alberobello, Locorotondo, Ostuni, Lecce and Cisternino – many of which look stunning as you approach them from the road - especially Ostuni at night. There is a great ice cream place in a square in Cisternino – BARFOD 1951. Another memorable place is Sassi di Matera – amazing rock dwellings and steeped in history. Polignano a Mare is also worth a visit for beautiful cliff views and the old town, although maybe try to avoid a National Holiday!
Although this is an area we visited “by chance,” we would certainly recommend this part of Italy to others and for them to stay at Trullo Melograno.
On a final note, try out the pizza oven – fun for everyone to get involved even though we certainly needed a little more practice!

Trullo Melograno - A lovely place to stay, perfect in every way
We would give Trullo Melograno 10 stars if we could. We stayed for 14 nights in July and we really didn’t want to leave. The Trullo was spotlessly clean, very well appointed and had everything a family of five could need for a comfortable and really enjoyable holiday. I guess this comes from the owners living there for a number of years with their own family. Everything about Trullo Melograno is impressive. The pool is a really good size and is lovely to cool down in on a hot day. Often there is a welcoming breeze wafting over the terrace keeping the heat of the day pleasant. There is lots of outdoor space and the garden is very private. The pizza oven was great fun and was well used. We all got involved in making them and they were as good as any on offer in the local restaurants. The location was perfect for exploring this beautiful area of Italy. We certainly recommend visiting Matera, Ostuni, Alberobello, Martina Franca, Fasana & Lecce, along with the many beaches dotted along the coast. If you get a chance do take advantage of chartering the Yacht with Captain Greg, what a lovely peaceful experience. The whole family enjoyed swimming in the sea and looking out for Dolphins and Turtles. Booking was very easy, Jackie was extremely professional and ensured we were well looked after. I have no hesitation in recommending Puglia Holiday Rentals and I would certainly book with Jackie again without any hesitation. I particularly appreciated it that our security deposit was back in our bank account before we had even left the country. I am sure we will be back soon.

The accommodation was spacious and well equipped, very private and great to chill out.
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
We stayed at this trullo for 10 days at the end of June, it was everything and more than we would want from a villa. The accommodation was spacious and well equipped, very private and great to chill out.
We like to be in the countryside so this was really good for us, but it was a 10 minute drive to the nearest town (Martina Franca).
There is lots to see in the area as well as relaxing either by the pool or going to the beach.
