Trulli La Macina

Cisternino, Brindisi

A beautiful little collection of trulli near the Valle d’Itria – restored with flair by generous Enzo for whom nothing is too much trouble


8 bedrooms


Sleeps 20


Tucked away in a patchwork of olive groves, reached via a maze of stone-walled lanes, are two pretty trulli and one square-shaped lamie, renovated with eco sensitivity and an urbane sense of style. You can rent the lamie for two, the trulli for four, add the ‘trulleta’… or take the whole lot and sleep eight plus a child. The flexibility is fabulous, your host is warm and loquacious and takes care of it all. Fancy breakfast? Vincenzo will provide it, a sunny feast from the summer kitchen of crostata, fresh cakes and just-squeezed juices; there’s babysitting on offer, too. Dazzling white, with thick walls to keep out the heat, the 200-year-old trulli have cosy snug bedrooms and diddy new kitchens, natural earth colours and country antiques, and bathrooms with big shower heads and baskets of thick towels. But outside is where you’ll mostly be, by the pool, surrounded by lavender and jasmine, bamboo and cacti, lanterns, candles and hammocks in the woods – it couldn’t be lovelier! Wine villages and summer food festivals abound; the beaches and flowering macchia of the Adriatic coast are an easy drive.

We loved our stay at La Macina; our lovely host Enzo who we now consider our friend; the beautiful town of Cisternino; the nicest swimming pool of its type we've ever encountered. We were sad to leave but we will be back.


This is a fabulous place - stylishly decorated with a wonderful large pool. Enzo the host was so hospitable and couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. The house was immaculately clean and we were greeted with local wine and freshly baked (delicious) cake. It's a short drive to Cisternino which is a great little town with fantastic restaurants and little shops. All in all a fantastic holiday - perhaps our best. Thank you Enzo - we really hope to come back soon!


This truly is an idyll in the gorgeous charms of this part of Puglia Enzo is the PERFECT host....nothing is too much trouble & his breakfasts are legendary. Everything here is spotlessly clean & so artistic.....the pool is amazing & difficult to leave!! Staying here is like staying with a friend and we shall undoubtedly return to savour Trulli la Macina, its gorgeous surroundings & the sheer aura of it all We stayed in the Lamia & it was gorgeous Mulitgrazie Enzo!! Alan & Susan


After five months travelling in Europe with our family we all agree that Trulli La Macina was our favourite place. Not only was it a perfect base from which to explore Puglia, it was a comfortable and delightful home away from home.Enzo is a charming and delightful host, his property is immaculate and the accommodation is well-equipped with many thoughtful details.From the moment we met the engaging Enzo to the day we (sadly) left, we had a memorable and happy stay. We would love to return.

Enzo's place is trulli scrumptious! we have just returned from a wonderful trip. The location is brilliant for sightseeing and beach but it's both the beauty of the surroundings, the trulli interiors, the gardens and amazing designer swimming pool and the warm and generous Enzo that make this trulli special. We are sure to return to this little piece of heaven


A wonderful place: you will receive a warm welcome from Enzo, and the decoration and garden are lovely. Everything you need for a perfect holiday and a great location to visit Puglia. Our whole family loved our stay, we're planning on coming back next year!


Amazing place. Beautifully restores trulli in a country setting with an amazing pool. Enzo is a great host who recommends the best restaurants, supermarkets and beaches. Highly recommended and hoping to go back.
