A home among the olive trees
The name Olea derives from the Latin, Oleum, which signifies our Puglian oil, a fragrant and intense virgin olive oil.
The restoration of this group of trulli has been meticulously carried out, whilst respecting its original characteristics and features. Its natural beauty has been maintained, and only modern additions used in order to transform it into a comfortable home. This is a place where you can experience moments of total tranquility and joy, surrounded by a wonderous ambient of nature.
You will be welcomed by the colours synonymous with this region, the dark red of the soil, the white of the limestone buildings, the blue of the sky and the sea, and together with the characteristics of the trulli, you will carry in your heart and soul memories of this beautiful region.
The property is surrounded by one hectare of land with ancient olive trees as well as a young olive grove, almond and apricot trees, pomegranates and figs; making you feel completely immersed in the marvelous Puglian countryside.
Under the shade of the impressive gazebo, you can enjoy al fresco dining whilst surrounded by fragrant herbs such as lavender, myrtle and rosemary, whilst cooking locally sourced quality meat or freshly picked garden vegetables on the barbecue, or even try making your own pizza!
The salt-water pool, surrounded by a beautiful olive grove invites you to take a refreshing swim, and a shaded relaxation area by the pool is the ideal spot for those hot sunny days. You can walk among the olive trees, where you can appreciate their beauty up close, as well as picking the juicy figs or the apricots from a centuries-old tree. You will be intoxicated with the scent of aromatic basil, thyme and mint plants which are all at your disposal.
The more energetic can enjoy a fun game of table tennis or football, go walking on the many nearby walking trails or cycle along the Ciclovia dell'Acqua (Aqueduct cycle route) (itineraries are displayed on the walkways of the main Apulian aqueduct).
If you wish, you can treat yourself to our luxury dining experiences such as excellent Puglian dishes cooked for you by our chef, or enjoy real pizza made before your own eyes by an expert piazzaiolo (pizzamaker). Those who have a passion for yoga can request a rejuvenating lesson among the olive trees or by the pool or relax with a gentle massage. As the warm summer days turn to cooler evenings, a magnificent brazier is the ideal accompaniment to the chatter among friends and family; along with a good glass of Pugliese wine!
In the mornings, when it is still cool and quiet, other than the sound of bird song, it’s a tranquil time to appreciate a leisurely breakfast. The afternoons, when the sun is at its highest, it’s the perfect time to enjoy a refreshing swim in the beautiful salt-water pool. And in the evenings, when the sun sets over the olive grove, it’s time to enjoy dinner outdoors, by candlelight and under a starry sky. Everything has been taken care of in every detail, to give you an unforgettable and unique experience!
Trulli Olea offers you a little piece of paradise.
