    We are Luisa & Francesco, a young family of two parents and a little girl, and we live in our family run b&b between April and October, together with 2 dogs and 3 cats. We have been living for many years abroad and have decided to return to our own country to set up our family and our b&b here in Ceglie Messapica.
    The bed & breakfast nested in two hectars of olive trees in the countryside of Ceglie Messapica, land of Trulli, iconic building in the Itria Valley area of Puglia in South of Italy
    The b&b is composed of three rooms, and we normally welcome a maximum of 12 people per time; we also rent our location for private events so we may host some events or wedding during the season.
