Our verdict: “Trullo Ulmo is undoubtedly our most romantic hideaway. Deliciously set in wonderful landscaped gardens, perfect for one, maybe two couples happy to spend time in each other’s company”.
Trullo Ulmo has been faithfully restored in the “martinese” style and is set in the delightful rolling olive groves and vineyards between Ceglie Messapica and Martina Franca. Perched on a gently sloping two-acre hilltop, landscape architect Alexander Moggio has sited the two new lamie buildings on the crest of a low-lying ridge, maximizing the views of the terrain and amplifying the effects of the sunlight as it moves across the land. Colourful and sensuous plantings of lavender, rosemary and other Mediterranean plants surround the pool and outside pergola.
Designed with understated luxury, Trullo Ulmo blends modern and traditional elements. Perfect for couples seeking privacy, the three-coned tastefully restored structure houses the master suite, while the stylish hand-finished white stucco lamia houses a second independent bedroom with a queen-sized bed and en-suite shower room.
