Perfect for Pets


Pet-friendly Trullo Lilia is completely enclosed so your dogs can explore the garden and grounds without wandering out into the countryside beyond!

Welcome to Trullo Lilia, a magical pet-friendly retreat set in the idyllic countryside setting of Ceglie Messapica. We think it’s one of the most fascinating places in the Itria Valley, renowned for its love of cuisine and excellent restaurants.

The traditional stone trulli was completely renovated and restored by the owners who combined their love of Puglia, with their passion for art and fashion. The result is this incredibly stylish accommodation that every guest falls head of heels in love with.

From the minute you drive through the gates, the creativity and sleek finish of the villa instantly captures your attention.

Nestled in a hectare estate of olive groves, fruit trees, and an enchanting garden. Trullo Lilia is the perfect choice for a luxury and completely relaxing stay under the Puglian sun.

The story behind Trullo Lilia

When we started to rent the villa, the estate was unfenced. A lovely family with their two children came to stay and one fine day, they encountered a stray dog wandering the estate.

The family and the dog became firm friends and when the day came to leave Trullo Lilia, the children didn’t want to leave without their new found four-legged companion. Sadly, their father was allergic to pet hair, so they had to leave him behind.

But the story doesn’t end there. A few weeks later, new guests arrived and found the dog, who by this time was used to playing with children. They too fell in love with Trullo Lilia’s adopted dog and they straight away organised the adoption of the dog, who is now called Totó the Tramp.

When they heard that the children had also fallen in love, they set up an Instagram Page so that they could follow his move from Puglia to Munich!

There are two Trulli which make up the main part of the accommodation and a more recent Lamia suite offers extra sleeping space and means two couples or teenagers can enjoy privacy when needed.
