Note:

The accommodation is a modernised house using traditional materials. Through the private front door we go up stairs to the landing, off which to the left is the bedroom and the right the living room and kitchen. Up stairs from the kitchen is the bathroom and roof terrace with plants, dining table chairs and sun loungers.

Further Details:

Ostuni, the "Citta Bianca" is a magical place especially in the evenings. The architecture is a mix of all things southern Mediterranean. It looks like a north African town. Eating, drinking and relaxing out in the open air late into the night is a joy, for all ages. In July and more so in August the main Piazzas of Ostuni and Carovigno have live entertainment of all sorts of high quality, culminating in the Saint Oronzo horse parade in Ostuni on August 25/26th. Martina Franca has an Opera festival in July. Ostuni and Carovigno are working towns that operate all year round. This is a mainly agricultural area. Northern Puglia grows most of the dram wheat for the pasta of Italy, & the region makes as much wine as Australia but, this particular area is best known for it's olive oil. Olive tress are everywhere which give the view a green 'carpet'. The soil here is highly fertile and wonderful vegetables are available. The Markets tend to be on different days in different towns. Carovigno's is Tuesday morning, Ostuni has a full market on a Saturday morning and a vegetable market on a Wednesday morning. There are good supermarkets and smaller specialist grocers, butchers, fish vendors, cheese makers, wine, and fresh pasta shops in both towns.

There are blue flag beaches within a ten minute drive, (visible from the roof terrace,) and many other lovely beaches and coves to swim, snorkel, and sunbathe. In the summer evenings the coastal villages come alive with music, street vendors, ice cream parlours, restaurants and bars.

The beautiful Baroque towns of Lecce, Martina Franca, Locorotondo and the Famous Trulli of Alberobello are all a short drive.

A great experience for us on our honeymoon. Will was so helpful and the flat was beautiful. Much bigger than it seems on the photos. We can wholeheartedly recommend sea view.

Great View

  • 3 of 5
The appartment is on the highest point of the city Ostuni some 200 meters from the sea level and 50 to 80 meters higher than the public parking place. Better not to forget something you might need up there in your car.
The stairs inside the house to the bath room and to terrace are also very steep like ladders without rails. Not for a person who suffers from vertigo.
The view from the terrace over Apulian plateau to the Adriatic is magnificent, day and night.
The Old City is very charming full of restaurants and small cafes with moderate prices concerning fair food quality. There are more restaurants in the more modern city below.
At daytime The Old City is full of tourists, mainly Italian. At night it's almost empty people gathering at the central plaza bars and cafes at Piazza Liberta.
The owner is friendly and helpful.
Local wines are very good! There are beaches on the Adriatic just 15 minutes away from the parking place.

Owner's Response: Hi Jussi,
Thank you for your review. I hope Riitta is continuing her recovery. If I had known the problem in advance I would have recommended our "Lemon Tree House" (Owners Direct Ref: IT12784), which is all on one level and just a bit closer to the Cathedral. But, your review will help me avoid this problem with others in the future. The stairs are steep but actually a lot better than many in Ostuni, due to the age of the city. However, as you say the view is special. It is actually a climb of 37 metres from the car park which I realise probably felt like much more. The little taxis can bring you up though. If you would like to return to Ostuni I will find you the most suitable of our properties for you at a very good rate.
My very best wishes to you both,
Kind Regards,
Will
