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 villa is perfectly situated close to the historic town of Ceglie, but just far enough away to feel like you’ve got away from everything. We loved the central location which meant we were able to explore many of the interesting villages and towns of Puglia a short drive away.
The villa is beautiful- simple, rustic, but elegantly fitted out with everything you need to make your stay comfortable and has a real sense of place. The surrounding gardens and pool with their fragrant roses and Mediterranean plants are a lovely oasis to enjoy after a day out exploring.
Special mention to the wonderful host, who provided us with so many great tips on places to visit and restaurants to dine at. We absolutely loved our first visit to this region of Italy and return home a little heavier- both from the delicious food as well as weighed down with the ceramics from the region!
