Casa Aqva is located in Ceglie Messapica, Puglia / Molise

Ceglie Messapica is a charming base from which to explore the region. Although the area has been inhabited since antiquity, the current settlement is medieval. The town centres on a 14th century castle and also has several churches dating from the 16th and 18th centuries.

Nearby Ostuni is known as one of the White Cities of the area, in reference to the square whitewashed buildings and meandering streets more commonly found across the Adriatic in Greece. From its dominant position on a hill top, it offers wonderful views of the surrounding country side and sea. The well preserved centro storico (or historic centre) is encircled by limestone walls and worthy of more than an few hours of exploration.

Lecce, capital of the nearby Salento region, is often referred to as the Florence of the South. Its Old Town is jam packed with Baroque churches, palazzi and civic buildings, including a castle, a Roman amphitheatre, 16th century city gates and the remains of a Roman theatre.
