Villa del Camino is a delightful country cottage with an infinity swimming pool and panoramic views across the olive grove.

The property is found at the end of a long country lane surrounded by secular olive trees and a variety of fruit trees in grounds extending as far as two hectares. The perfect holiday spot to chill out, relax and soak up the all-inclusive environment by the swimming pool or in the shade of those big old silvery leafed companions of Puglia.

Just a 25-minute drive to the beautiful rocky beaches and coves along the Adriatic coast; a 10-minute drive or 10 minutes by bike to the Messapian town of Ceglie Messapica - the gastronomic capital of Puglia. Villa del Camino is a memorable base from which to explore the other important points of interest and must-see places to visit in the region. Each of Relax Puglia rental houses has a complimentary brochure to ensure you get the most out of your holiday.

Friends & Family
Villa del Camino is ideal for six, two couples and young children or the extended family with Mom and Pop in the studio annex. Equally we can accommodate two more on the sofa bed if you can not leave your friends behind!

The main part of the traditional cottage sleeps four (plus room for those extra two!) comfortably with a spacious and adjoined (but not intercommunicating) annex, double bed with shower suite and its own private terrace overlooking the olive grove.
The master double is in the main house suitable for a couple adjacent to the dining area, both of which overlook the pool and south facing terrace. To the rear of the property there is also a snug with a pull-out sofa bed perfect for two small ones or a single adult. The living room (home to the other sofa bed) connects the night rooms to the kitchen.
Bedrooms all have plenty of hanging space and night tables for holiday wear and charging phones and other devices.
The rustic kitchen is well equipped despite its size with large fridge, dishwasher, cooker top and oven. All the comforts squeezed in to ensure you have the right utensils, crockery and pan ware for your cooking creations inspired by the range of fresh foods at the markets and supermarkets.
And depending on the season, you can collect fruits & nuts from the land. Cherries, apricots, pears, figs, almonds, olives, walnuts....  

Villa del Camino looks out on to the rear of the estate, sun terrace and the infinity swimming pool. The sun terrace has seating for all kinds of relaxation and meditation, shaded, semi-shaded or in the full southern Italian sun. Hammocks beneath the large olives provide an ideal spot to read that book you have been meaning to digest.
There is private parking to the property accessed through the main entrance. The property is located far off the main roads that connect Ceglie Messapica and the neighbouring town of St. Michele Salentino, through winding country lanes ideal for cycling and evening walks before dinner or a quick five minute drive.
New for next season! A BBQ and outside kitchen area are under construction for the 2019 season.

Celebrate Food

Our region holds a number of festivals ‘sagra’ during the year, mainly during the summer; celebrating religious anniversaries, customs, local food produce, crafts, wines and music. They offer huge amounts of evening entertainment with live music and usually fireworks to close the event. Each village opens its community doors offering their hospitality and locality to visitors. Be sure you enquire with us as to the nearest one to your holiday villa in Puglia to ensure you do not miss out on all the fun and festivities!

Exclusive for our Guests at Relax Puglia

Chef in Casa - Home-cooked food for travelers of the world; what better way to grasp the inner circle of local life than to have a local cook share with you their Puglia cuisine, as cooked in their homes. We are fortunate to have on board Lucrezia, who has been working with Relax Puglia for nearly ten years.

Lucrezia is warm and generous with a passion I can only envy for cooking; but looking after two growing boys has been her real inspiration; working magic with fresh and seasonal local ingredients. Enquire with us, we have set menus available to choose from or let us know what you’ve in mind.

Cooking Classes If you are looking to entertain the family and also wish to experience real Pugliese country cooking then look no further. Hands-on cooking lessons where everyone gets to be involved making a full course meal, from anti-pasto to first and second courses and to complete it with a traditional sweet dish.

In-house Massages - Life is easier when you are relaxed so you may need to pamper yourself or someone else. Bring the Massage Therapist to your Puglia rental villa door and enjoy a delicious massage, a fusion of eastern and western techniques pointing you towards both relaxation and cure.

The best part about bringing the Massage Therapist to your door is, you don’t have to drive, you don’t have to deal with the outside world, you don't even have to get dressed although the Therapist would appreciate you wear a robe!


"A totally dreamy place! Family of four, two kids age 11 and 13. We had such a wonderful stay at Il Cammino. We loved the slightly remote feel with all the perks of Ceglie Messapica being just 10 mins down the road. The house is beautiful, beautiful olive trees in the big garden, fig ripening quicker than we could eat them. The swimming pool was the perfect size and we used it at night also. Heaven. This area of puglia is unspoilt and reasonably quiet with a slow feeling, great food and scenery. To anyone wishing to visit the area I would highly recommend Alain and Marit’s place. Thank you. :)"

Emma - September 2019 (Guest through Airbnb website)

"Fantastically located property to explore Southern Italy. The pool is absolutely essential with the amazing Puglian weather and we loved spending lazy days around it, and returning to it after an adventure. We were 3 adults and 2 kids, and all fitted comfortably. We love the house so much, and hope to return (again!) one day."

Versha J. - August 2019 (Owner repeat booking managed through Relax Puglia)

"A wonderful place to relax, everything is perfect there. The best house I ever stayed."
