About the property

Relax and unwind in a hammock between two fig trees and recharge your batteries in the shade of an olive tree, strolling on foot into the small town situated on a Aperitiv, explore the area by bicycle, relaxed by public transport in the Baroque city of the South, Lecce, or the ancient Roman port city, Brindisi, driving, visit the weekly market on Saturdays in Ostuni, go to the beach of Torre Canne, or Villanova. You are on holiday also from their car, or just use it when you want to make a day trip to Santa Maria de Leuca, the southernmost Cap Puglia, or to Castel del Monte, the mysterious castle of the Swabian king Frederick II, at Andria. Welcome to Casa Ulivento, with an open kitchen and a spacious living room, two bedrooms and a bathroom, ideal for two couples or a family. The house, 80 square meters, surrounded by several terraces, located in the middle of an olive grove, and yet so close to town that you can reach on foot the center of Ceglie Messapica in 10 minutes. The ancient Messapian city, Ceglie Messapica, with its narrow streets, the old Castel, the lively Piazza and the boulevards invites you to linger, to feast, in the many bars and excellent restaurants, what Ceglie, is far beyond their city limits known.

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.
