The masseria “Kalia” used to be part of the ancient Masseria Galante, an was recently brought back to its ancient splendour. There are 4 buildings which are a part of the masseria complex: two beautiful villas with a shared pool which are rented out, a large room built in local stone which the villa clients can use for events or simply to relax in with a book on a hot summer’s day. The masseria is positioned right behind the walls of the historic town of Ceglie Messapica, famous for its gastronomy and art, built around the XV century. The historic centre is in walking distance and has many baroque churches situated in the narrow streets with its ancient ‘chianche’ stone slabs. During the summer season through to autumn, there are many music, food and religious festivals. Local restaurants, serving local food are easily reached by foot, along with the Montevicoli caves.

The masseria is about 10 km from Ostuni (the White City), and 17 km from the beautiful Blue flag  beaches.
