Inside the hotel built in a former wine cellar – with a secret pool under the bedrooms | The Sun

EVER wanted to jump from your bed to the pool? Well, now you can.

A man has shown how in a viral video in which he shared his incredible stay at Leonardo Trulli Resort in Locorotondo, Italy.

Stefano Dioi stayed in the Leonardo Suite, an underground bedroom that used to be a 300-year-old wine cellar.

What made his stay even more special was an entrance to his very own pool inside his room – with a cellar door opening up to reveal steps leading into the cool, blue water.

Stefano’s video clip, shared on Instagram (@stfno), has over 770,000 views on his own page, and 1.4 million likes on a re-shared post, with users mesmerised by the accommodation.

“As I arrived I immediately felt at home,” Stefano, 33, a tour leader from Brescia, Italy, told Need to Know.

“The underground pool is large, with a sitting area and a lying area.

“It was also at a very pleasant temperature around 35 degrees.”

The entrance to the pool is located at the foot of the bed, with just a square in the floor and steps into the ground.

There is also a water feature at the end of the pool, as well as seats built under the water.

In past years, this space was used as a wine cellar.

He said: “I was lucky to have the Leonardo Suite all by myself, it's the only one with the underground pool.

“I’ve never stayed at such a special place before, and I’ll definitely be back before Christmas.”

The room itself is decorated with natural tones and still features the original brick walls, with wooden furniture and colourful flooring.

In the viral clip, Stefano can be seen jumping out of bed and swinging himself into the pool below.

The camera follows him as he swims through, showing the clear water and amazing architecture.

His post has more than 15,900 likes and comments from his followers.

One said: “Awesome! I was there a few weeks ago!”

Another commented: “You go to the bathroom at night and find yourself in water, spectacular though.”

A third added: “I suffer from claustrophobia. I can't.”

“I get anxiety just thinking about it,” added one.

“Amazing! But I'm a sleepwalker, no thanks!” joked another user.

Stays start at £500 a night in Leonardo Suite in the Cellar, which can be booked directly through the resort's website.

Leonardo Trulli also has its own spa, garden and magnesium salt swimming pool heated to 32 degrees.

Stefano added: “Being able to swim in Puglia in October was wonderful and unexpected.

“I practiced yoga, took part in a cooking class to prepare typical pasta and focaccia, cycled in the countryside.

“And enjoyed local delicacies for lunch, breakfast and dinner.”
