The Little Trullo

The Little Trullo is a classic “Trullo Salentino” or more correctly expressed a pajara, a building made of dry stone which has been used a long time ago by the local farmers as a refuge. The restoration of the original building had been ended in March 2018 and in chronological order it is the last accommodation for the holiday which has been established in the Residence degli Ulivi situated on the top of a hill over the sandy beaches of the Marina of Pescoluse, locality Scucchi (Municipality of Salve), approximately 10 km west of Santa Maria di Leuca, at the southernmost point of Salento and at the beginning of the Ionic coast.
Starting from the ancient original building with its two metre thick walls which helps maintain a mild temperature during the winter and a fresh one during the summer, the Little Trullo is now equipped for hosting only two people. It has been transformed into an original and particular accommodation for people who are looking for an alternative holiday in an ancient building in the midst of the nature without renouncing any of the comfort of a normal house. The dining area is outside under a canopy. It has a small kitchen with a small stove top, fridge and freezer and micro wave. The bathroom is complete with a shower and a washing machine. There is a lot of warm water because of solar energy.
The furniture is new and modern and the accommodation also has Wi–Fi and air conditioning cold/warm. A large and comfortable parking is situated near the “Trullo”. This is all immersed in a private 8000 square meters olive orchard: a secluded location which grants tranquillity and privacy. Furthermore due to the lower price of the rent compared to those of the other accommodations of the Residence degli Ulivi, the Little Trullo means a valid alternative to staying in a tent at the camping.
All the accommodations and their systems have been constructed according to security laws and there is no danger in using them properly. The water of the reservoir is drinkable but we recommend boiling it for alimentary use. The Little Trullo will be furnished clean with bed–linen and towels. The weekly change is included in the price. Pets are welcome if they don’t disturb the neighbourhood.

For all those who want additional information on the various houses of the Residence, there are some reviews written by our guests over the years.
