About the property

Relax in a hammock, between two fig trees and recharge your batteries in the shade of an olive tree, stroll to the pretty town of Ceglie Messapica for an aperitif, explore the surroundings on bicycles, relax in the Baroque city of the South by public transport, Drive to Lecce, or the old Roman port city, Brindisi, visit the weekly market on Saturday in Ostuni, drive to the beach of Torre Canne, or Villanova. You also take a vacation from your car, or use it only if you want to make a day trip to Santa Maria de Leuca, the southernmost cape of Apulia, or to Castel del Monte, the enigmatic castle of Hohenstauferkönigs Frederick II, Andria. Welcome to Casa Mia, with an open plan kitchen and a spacious livingroom, two bedrooms and a bathroom, ideal for two couples or a family. The house, 80 square meters, surrounded by several terraces, is located in the middle of an olive grove, and yet close to the city, that you reach the center of Ceglie Messapica in about 10 minutes on foot. The ancient Messapic city, Ceglie Messapica, with its narrow streets, the medieval castle, the lively piazza and the boulevards invites you to linger, to feast in the many bars and excellent restaurants, for which Ceglie is known far beyond its city limits.

If you would like to spend your holidays in a historic trullo, a dome, take a look at my object Trullo GaiaVita. It is also possible to book both objects, Casa Mia and Trullo GaiaVita together. Renting both objects allows you to travel with a friendly family, or with good friends. They enjoy the closeness to their friends, spend great time together, but do not give up their private space, doing and letting in their own four walls, on their own terraces.

Perfect house in the country yet close to the town

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was fantastic. We were welcomed by Cosima and treated to excellent Italian kindness and generosity without being intrusive. The fresh figs were a bonus, as was seeing the almonds being harvested.

The house was perfect for us – in the country, with beautiful olives, almond and fig trees all around, yet close enough to walk into Ceglie to pick up bread in the mornings, or go out for an evening meal without the need to drive. The surrounding area is well worth a visit and provides a different view of Italy.

Thank you Cosima for providing an excellent place for us to recharge our batteries – so refreshing, and brings a smile to my face which should last longer than the English summer!

août 2017 - Parfaite Location

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine merveilleuse dans la maison de Cosima. Tout était très agréable, le jardin, la maison, la situation proche de cette très conviviale et vivante ville de Ceglie Messapica. La région est magnifique, la maison est parfaite pour une famille avec enfants et surtout, ce qui n'a pas de prix : l'accueil, les conseils, la gentillesse et la générosité de Cosima qui ont fait de notre séjour un véritable moment de partage.
