...Gianfranco is a great host. He gave us a lot of very helpful advice in sorting out our travel arrangements to Ostuni and whilst we were there he made great suggestions about places to visit. His restaurant recommendations were also spot on
...There are a number of excellent nearby restaurants - we tried a couple recommended by the owner & we were very pleasantly surprised. If/when we visit Puglia again, I'm sure we will return to Palazzo Auris. Avoid the bland & stay here!
...The owner, who speaks very good English, and his charming mother live across the hall. During our visit they were always very friendly, helpful and kind. We enjoyed the feeling of complete privacy, and of having our own 'apartment' right in the center of Ostuni...
Gianfranco and Tina purchased this apartment in 2004
Palazzo Auris is a unique masterpiece of Italian Neo-Renaissance style. Luxuriously renovated, offers now air-conditioning, exquisite interiors, ensuite bathroom in every room and a splash pool in the Italian garden.
Palazzo Auris has preserved the charm of ancien and noble mansion, it is a dream come true.
After decades of traveling through many countries of Europe, the States and Asia, our stay in Villa Auris in Ostuni counts among the most extraordinary we have ever experienced. The fully equipped apartment on the first floor is sumptuous, surprisingly large and has private access to a magnificent garden of orange and tangerine trees.
We traveled to Italy many times and stayed in many apartments /villas in many different regions and it is safe to say that Palazzo Auris is one of the nicest of them all and definitely will be one of the most memorable one.
If there was one real issue with this apartment, at least for us, it was the fact that we didn’t want to leave it in the morning….:)
The place is genuine and truly unique. You can easily get lost in 7 rooms and garden that make up the apartment. It is full of unique furniture pieces and one really feels history within its thick walls. On the other hand the apartment is well equipped and has all the modern conveniences from well stocked kitchen to nicely appointed bathroom.
onderfully located 19th century palazzo facing onto lovely public gardens, within easy walking distance to the main piazza of Ostuni, with nearby cafes, food shops and excellent restaurants.
All the rooms are large and have high ceilings, large windows, and French doors leading to a private terrace and garden. They are comfortably furnished including some antiques which add to their charm and authenticity. The large kitchen is fully equipped for preparing meals and the dining room can easily accommodate eight people. A useful bonus is having a laundry room within the apartment and clothes lines for drying wash out in the sun.
Convenient parking is directly across the street and is free all night and during some daytime hours.
This is a unique, very affordable, spacious, and practical self-catering rental for two couples or a family.
