Ceglie Messapica is a fantastic base for Ostuni region. Lecce about an hour or so by road (but you can get the train). Adriatic coast about 40mins by car. Ceglie is a lovely town with a couple of supermarkets, local shops and some lovely restaurants and bars. If you like authentic Italy then you will love this region.
In the details of this property (English) you may get confused about the availability of bicycles and TV/ Satellite. To be fair to Guiseppe (the owner) the Italian language version of Home Away points out to these being available at extra cost but the TV is only Italian language. So it’s actually Home Aways translation at fault. The owner is faultless in helping but does not speak English however we found ‘translation’ apps are fantastic. This Trulli is fabulous.
The property is very characterful and the outdoor kitchen is excellent. The pool was rather cold in October (of course!) but the kids loved it all the same. The garden is huge and there are chairs and loungers laid out in several sunny spots around the grounds as well as hammocks and a kids football goal. Our group was two adults, two kids and a baby (for whom a good quality cot & highchair were provided) and I would say we maxed the house out in terms of capacity.
Michael is warm, genuine, helpful and very responsive to messages if you need to ask anything during your stay. I would recommend this property for a summer holiday.
