Residenza Aurora is a comfortable complex of apartments set in Valle d'Itria in rural Puglia in the small hamlet of Pascarosa near the towns of Ostuni and Cisternino.
The residence has a wonderful huge swimming pool brimming with colourful flowers, palms and cacti. The verandas have lovely views of the surrounding countryside with vast expanse of olive groves, cherries, figs which guests can enjoy eating. Also the produce from the vegetable garden will be part of your Pugliese experience.
The sea is 20 minutes' away - here you can enjoy crystal clear warm sea until the end of October.
We had a fantastic time atResidenza Aurora when we visited in September 2009. The facilities at the Residenza are excellent and Aurora had done everything possible to make our stay a great one.
The area has some great food and wine to offer, as we discovered and even the local shops and supermarket have an abundance of fresh fish,fruit and vegetables,cured meats and cheeses . We had a great time and would recommend to anyone, I am sure we will be back.......
Pascarosa is one of the few traditional Pugliese villages which is served by a bus and a local rail station. It is surrounded by hectares of olive trees, figs, cherries, and an abundance of wild flowers. Lovely beaches are 20 minutes' away and there is a natural reserve half an hour away which has astounding variety of flora and fauna. The trulli of Alberobello are one of the main attractions of the area. The baroque city of Lecce, which is only 50 minutes' away is not to be missed. Also the Grotte of Castellana with its stalactyites and stalagmites are some of the wonderful attractions of this unspoilt part of the world.
