Between the old and beautiful city of Maruggio and the small, in summertimes very vivid seaside resort Campomarino di Maruggio, lies close to the coast this fabulous and very complete trullo. It is only 900 meter from the clear Ionian sea and famous dunes of Campomarino and lies quietly between olive groves, vineyards and lemon trees.
The plot is 400m2 and has a private garden with several terraces, a brick outdoor fireplace and an unobstructed view on lemon trees and maritime pines. In the garden of the trullo there is also a veranda with the washing machine and here you can also dry the laundry.
The parking for your car is on your own premises next to the terrace and only a couple of steps away from the entrance of the trullo to bring your suitcases or errands in.
The specific design of the trullo ensures that the very thick trullo wall (varies from about 20 to 40 ft) not only keeps the house from the inside nice and cool in summertime, but it also defines the special, authentic atmosphere of the trullo. As you enter the house you will experience the special atmosphere which comes with this traditional way of construction of the trullo. The usable surface of the trullo itself is approximately 1000 ft2.
On entering the living room with a traditional Apulian kitchen in stone, you will see the romantic stove built into the old trullo wall and where you can sit delightfully on colder evenings to enjoy the fireplace with e.g. a glass of Primitivo wine. The kitchen has a gas stove with five burners, an oven, cooker hood and a big no-frost refrigerator and freezer.
Both the living room and kitchen have been tastefully decorated in a classic way, suitable for a historic construction like a trullo. The living room gives access to all three bedrooms and the bathroom.
The romantic master bedroom is the original, over 200 years old trullo and has a high vaulted ceiling and a small window above the original low entrance. This room is has a double bed and a side table for your clothes.
The other double room is located behind the kitchen, has a sloping wooden ceiling and looks out on the garden. This room has two single beds and a large drawer with mirror above it.
The third bedroom is the smallest room, has also a sloping, wooden ceiling and here you can see again a part of the rustic thick trullo wall. It has one single bed and a small cabinet. The window of this room gives a view on the large terrace with lemon trees on the background.
The bathroom is again dominated by the large trullo wall forming the left wall of the bathroom and can be used to put your cosmetics, towels or something decorative. In the bathroom is a small window looking at the fields behind with cactuses. It has a toilet, a bidet, a wash basin and a shower cabin in glass.
“Casa Girasole” has its own electricity connection, gas is in bottles, the water comes from a spring, is filtered and taken from the adjoining landowner and the internet connection is through satellite.
All floors of the trullo are tiled and thus simply to be kept clean. The roofing has been newly renovated in the spring of 2016.
The trullo can be heated with open fire in the fireplace in the living room, or with the air conditioner/inverter that warms in the winter and cools in the summer, so Casa Girasole can be inhabited all year round.
On the whole, the trullo “Casa Girasole” a wonderful and special house that leans very good for those who are looking for a ground single floor house that is quiet and private, and provides the ability to recover on the beautiful Ionian coast.
