Set on the first floor of an ancient building in the very heart of Ceglie Messapica, Il Violino and Il Sassofono have been lovingly and respectfully restored to offer a small slice of Italian life in one of Puglia’s oldest towns.

The story behind Il Violino and Il Sassofono

Named after her two favourite instruments, the apartments pay tribute to their Belgian owner’s great passion for music, her appreciation of the many concerts she has attended at the town’s music conservatory, and her deep rooted love of Ceglie Messapica.

The Location

The apartments are only 100 metres from the main pedestrianised area of Ceglie Messapica, home to some of the most renowned restaurants and bars in the Itria Valley.

The Accommodation

Il Violino is a two room apartment and can sleep up to three.
Il Sassofono is a studio apartment perfect for two.
Together, they can be rented to suit a group of up to five guests.
Accessed via a stone staircase, the accommodation is tastefully decorated throughout and thoughtfully planned with your comfort in mind. A fine example of old town charm meets 21ct century cool.

Il Sassofono

Good things come in small packages and Il Sassofono is a shining example. The living area of this studio apartment is bright and airy with a window opening onto a small balcony that overlooks the alleyway below.

Tucked behind a bamboo privacy screen, a comfortable double bed sits in a small raised area that also benefits from lots of natural light.
