Villa Location
This countryside villa is located just outside Villa Castelli, 15 minutes' drive from Ceglie Messapica. Ceglie Messapica is a town yet to be touched by volumes of tourist and still retains its traditional way of life. It is well known for its quality restaurants where you can enjoy the local fare, or perhaps a drink on one of the piazzas. What's more, both Ostuni and Cisternino are both just over 30 minutes' drive away.

Location features

Local markets and shopping

The nearest supermarket for you holiday essentials is around 5 minutes' drive away in Villa Castelli. Most of the towns in the area hold a weekly market, where you can pick up the odd souvenir. The one in Ceglie Messapica takes place every Saturday selling local produce, seasonal vegetables, fruit, clothing, household wares, cheese, meat, plants and various other bits and pieces.

Bars and restaurants

There is a small selection of restaurants, 5 minutes' drive away in Villa Castelli. Alternatively, Ceglie Messapica has a reputation as a gastronomic centre, with some great restaurants where you can enjoy a meal or a drink in one of the piazzas. Or, for a more unique dining experience, Cisternino, around 35 minutes' drive away, is famous for its barbecuing butchers. You select your meat then take a seat whilst it's cooked and served to you.


The nearest beaches are on the coast close to Ostuni with Villanova, 45 minutes' drive away, having several beaches in and around the town including a wide sandy public beach which slopes gently into the sea with sunbeds available for hire.

Family fun

The Acquapark Egnazia close to Monopoli and Zoosafari Fasanolandia, a safari park and theme park, are around an hours' drive from the villa. Or, if you fancy a bit of horse riding, take a trip to the Centro Ippico Parco di Mare in Fasana, 45 minutes' drive away.

Places of interest

Well worth a visit is Ostuni, 35 minutes' drive away, which is dubbed 'the White City' with its network of narrow lanes winding through white-washed buildings, past prestigious palaces and churches, and opening into piazzas. There are plenty of gift shops where you can pick up the odd souvenir too.

Alternatively, Alberobello, 50 minutes away by car, is a great place to stroll around with its narrow pedestrianised streets, distinctive trulli buildings, little shops selling local produce and a few nice cafes.


For a round of golf try the course in San Domenica, Fasano, around an hours' drive away.
Other activities

Why not take a trip to the Grotte di Castellana, one of the natural wonders of Puglia, where you can undertake a tour around the caves lasting for around 2 hours.


Every villa comes with its own manual, complete with details of the best restaurants, taxis, local amenities and activities. And of course, our reps are on hand to make sure you love your holiday more. If you need any advice or tips on the local area, they will be more than happy to help
