Do you have a question about this home or the local area?

Set less than one hundred metres from Ceglie Messapica's bustling pedestrianised hub and just an easy drive from the coast and Ostuni, the location of this apartment is spot-on. While the period home's vaulted ceilings and exposed stonework are impressive, there are a few compromises to make. Expect a small kitchenette that's better suited to lighter bites rather than large slap-up meals, and there's no outdoor space to speak of. But for a bolthole this characterful, we can forgive that.

Home truths

    Parking in Ceglie Messapica can be tricky, so we recommend sticking to the easily accessible public transport where possible – though we think the best way to see the city is on foot.

    You won't find an oven here – though there is a hob. We think the kitchen is better suited to prepping lighter bites than large meals.

    A cot and high chair can be provided for little ones on request.

    For larger groups, there is also a studio apartment available for booking – speak to your host directly for more information.

    Given the home's central spot, expect to hear some street noise throughout your stay.

Local guide


About Ostuni

You’ll probably spot Ostuni long before you reach the so-called White City of Puglia. It rises up on three hills, above the rust-red earth punctuated by olive trees. Shambling, narrow streets lead up the hillside to the crowning 12th-century Ostuni Cathedral. It’s a veritable labyrinth of ancient alleyways, where you can sample traditional Puglian fare like handmade orecchiette and oozing dollops of burrata in terrace restaurants, or taste a Salice...
