Il giardino di don mimì


Luxurious residence with trulli and swimming pool, with daily housekeeping service, surrounded by a large planted garden, located in the lush countryside of the Valle d’Itria, in a very scenic area, 1 km from Ceglie Messapica, which boasts recognition as a city of art and land of gastronomy.
The house is a combination of tradition and modernity both in structure and furnishings: it consists of 5trulli connected to a huge revisited “lamia”(400 sqm).

The living area consists of four trulli, with exposed stone, in which a table with four chairs (to be used for an intimate dinner or as a study area or for playing cards) are positioned to the right and a two-seater sofa and armchair in front of the fireplace to the left. The central trullo leads to the large redesigned “lamia” in which the living area continues: there are three sofas and a chest of drawers with a TV and a partially separate dining area with a round table for 8 and a view of the gazebo facing the pool. A hallway off to the side of the living area leads to a large, super-equipped eat-in kitchen with a table for 6/8 people and crockery (the crockery is ceramic from Grottaglie, a famous Apulian ceramics-producing town). From the kitchen there is access through a French window to the gazebo that overlooks the swimming pool. Next to the kitchen is a storage area with an electrical panel, rubbish cans, cabinets with additional pots and pans to those already in the kitchen, and an additional refrigerator with freezer. In the living area of the house (with very high
ceilings and a stone wall) there is a comfortable brick staircase leading to two suites, each with a large private bathroom (first floor). In the living area of the house (with very high ceilings and a stone wall) there is a convenient brick staircase from which there is access to two suites, each with a large en-suite bathroom (second floor). 

Also from the living area, on the first floor, skirting the staircase positioned on the left, there is access to a trullo with h 4.30 in which another bedroom has been obtained. Adjacent to the bedroom-trullo is another large bedroom with exposed stone in two places and h of 1.90. Through a hallway of h 1.90 (on the left of which is a compartment to be used for luggage storage and a large closet) there is access to a bathroom with shower (h 1.90 and shower h 2.10) and window, serving the two rooms on the first floor. A sliding door leads to the laundry room (h 1.90).
The entire house is air-conditioned and heated with a state-of-the-art multi-split fancoil system with separate temperature control for each room.
The large size of the living area and the well-kept and cozy interior furnishings allow the house to be used all year round, even in winter, i.e., during periods when outdoor spaces are not usable, and also for smart working (in two bedrooms there is a table with two armchairs).

The house is surrounded by a terraced garden of about 6000 square metres, with many dry stone walls (typical of the area) and many shaded areas, old plants, flowers and herbs. There are three gazebos with canopies: one of 50 square metres in front of the pool and near the kitchen with a table for 12 people and living area with a sofa, armchairs, an antique bench and two small tables; another in the pool area with a sommier for two people; yet another on the square in front of the trulli with a table for 10 people and a view of the lush garden. Another open-air conversation area has been set up in the shade of the holm oaks in front of the trulli, while a further relaxation area with sun loungers has been set up under a huge centuries-old oak tree in the shade from lunchtime until late afternoon. Guests have a “weber” barbecue at their disposal for outdoor grilling. An orchard is at guests’ disposal.

Il Giardino di Don Mimì is located in the highest and most panoramic part of the countryside of Ceglie Messapica, 1 km from the town (however, a car is essential to get around; a few restaurants are within walking distance, but keep in mind that a steep climb is required to return to the villa ). Ceglie Messapica is famous for its historic center (one of the oldest in the area, full of churches, narrow streets and whitewashed houses, with a Castle with a 14th-century tower from the Normamma period) and for its gastronomy: there are many renowned restaurants, excellent pastry shops (try the famous Ceglie cookie) as well as bars for breakfast and aperitifs. Ceglie Messapica is located in Valle d’Itria, known for its trulli, in a strategic position to visit the main localities of the area: Alberobello (the capital of trulli), Locorotondo, Cisternino, Martina Franca (famous for its baroque), Ostuni (known as the “white city”) and Grottaglie (famous for its ceramics exported all over the world). Il Giardino di Don Mimì is an excellent solution to enjoy the beautiful beaches of the Adriatic Sea (the nearest are 19 km away) but also to reach the crystal clear waters of the Ionian Sea (Campomarino di Maruggio is 45 km away)
