Overview

About the property

Three trulli cones, an oven and an old “lamia”about a century old have revived the site’s ancient appeal thanks to an accurate restoration and expansion personally supervised by the owner, a young Milanese architect who has always been in love with Puglia and wished to bring La Pietraia up-to-date while paying full respect to its ancient forms, colours and original materials.

The structure was originally used as a shelter for the vine growing luxuriantly here, favoured by the rocky soil rich in the minerals of the sunny and breezy hills of Ostuni. In fact, La Pietraia takes its name from the typical beautiful white-rosy limestone of Ostuni with which its trulli were built a century ago and are now brought to life in all their striking beauty.

La Petraia offers:

- three charming double bedrooms, two of which stand within the trulli, the other one features also a private and comfortable walk-in closet, each having its en-suite bathroom and independent access to the garden;

- an attractive and cosy living-room, placed within the ancient “lamia”, with an old stone fireplace and wonderful views of the pool and surrounding landscape; a kitchen with all modern amenities; and a fourth bathroom for guests.

- Every detail has been tastefully selected and installed, taking care to preserve the simple and authentic chic spirit of the place and guaranteeing an experience of elegant relaxation.

------------------------------------

Outside, La Pietraia has: an infinity relaxing swimming pool with an enjoyable panoramic view; pleasant comfortable outdoor areas set in a Mediterranean garden with myrtle and mastic trees; a lovely dining area just below the olive trees in which to enjoy a “frisella” after a dip or dine by candlelight.

The spacious terrace on the roof overlooks a scenic countryside full of olive trees and forests of oak, providing an ideal spot to enjoy an aperitif at sunset.

The property is also equipped with wifi, Sky tv, climate control, automatic gate, video surveillance and a convenient and ample parking area.

About Carola Altamura

I love Puglia's seaside, its great nature and simple elegance!

I love barbecue scented with olive wood in the summer evenings, the sound of crickets chirping in the night, the water skiing of the swallows on the pool, the reading of a good book sipping a glass of good local white wine on the terrace at the sunset...La Pietraia awaits to you with its charming trulli!

We really want that relaxation is your only commitment.

Have a nice stay!

Why Carola Altamura chose Ostuni

In the heart of Puglia Region, Best value travel destinations in the world for 2014 (National Geographic), you are perfectly located to explore all that Puglia has to offer, including the fascinating nearby cities of Ostuni, Lecce, Martina Franca and Cisternino.

What makes this villa unique

If you are looking for real Italian country charme, look no further.

Here you can easily slip into the slower pace of life of the country, and avoid the hustle and bustle of the coast, whilst still only 15 min driving from diving into the warm Adriatic sea as the beautiful Salento’s beaches or the Torre Guaceto Marine Protected Area.

Guestbook comments from the manager

“We had such a lovely stay, the villa itself was absolutely perfect and we all loved our stay there. Carola was so lovely on the phone to us, really helpful and spoke great English. Ada who was the caretaker was also wonderful and so helpful, she couldn't do enough for us. (..)”

A great week at an enchanting villa in Puglia.

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a wonderful stay at La Pietraia at the end of May. The location was ideal for our touring of Puglia. The highlights were a visit to Lecce to see the baroque buildings in the old city, the old city of Alberobello with its ~1500 trulli, the grottos at Castellana Grotte and the cliff side town of Polignano a Mare. We also quite enjoyed our local city of Ostuni and found easy access to a very decent grocery store (Familia) which satisfied all our needs.

The villa was very clean and comfortable and located in an enchanting setting. There were plenty of places to relax outside the lamia, by the pool, on the roof terrace or over at the outdoor dining table. In the evenings, the lamia was quite accommodating for the 5 of us. We used the pool quite a bit as we had some very warm days. The setting for the villa is quite peaceful and private. There are fruit trees and olive trees growing on the property. Each of the three suites was self contained and quite comfortable. The kitchen facilities were quite suitable for the occasional supper we cooked at home.

On our arrival we were met by Ada who looks after the place. Her English was a bit limited but she had a great translation app on her phone, and I also spoke directly with Carola by phone. We were made to feel very welcome. Carola was very approachable through email and responded to questions very quickly.

Ahead of the visit, Carola had contacted me to find out if we were interested in having food delivered on our first night. That was a great idea and we enjoyed a wonderful meal delivered to us by Daniele from his home restaurant near Ceglie Messapica. We enjoyed this so much that later in the week we went to his place for dinner which was in a fabulous trulli home with a huge outdoor wood fired oven. The food was very nice and lots of it.

We were a bit concerned about the water supply because of the cautions about it being a tank that has to be filled by truck. However, we exercised a little caution with our usage and never had an issue.

Overall, we had a great week at the villa and would have no problem at all recommending it to family and friends. Thanks Carola, you are a great hostess!

Splendid Trulli

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful villa in a great location south of Ostuni. The owner is an architect with an eye for detail and that is reflected in the quality of the finishing in the villa. Each double room has its own excellent shower room and separate entrance so good for friends and family. If there were any issues the owner was very responsive and helpful and spoke excellent English. Great pool and grounds with olive trees throughout.

La Pietraia is easily reached by way of a typical farm track and is strategically located just 4km from the beautiful town of Ostuni, the famous “White Town”of Puglia, with its services such as pharmacies and supermarkets less than ten minutes away, and is only some 12km from some of Puglia’s loveliest beaches of the Ostuni’s coastlines whose cleanliness and quality of amenities are testified to by the 5 Blue Flags won in recent year. The charming little fisherman harbour of Savelletri, where you can have a delightful fish dine or a stylish aperitif overlooking the sea is only half an hour from La Pietraia.

Ceglie Messapica, a lovely little old town renowned for its excellent restaurants and its fine cuisine of Puglia, is just 8 km far from La Pietraia. La Pietraia it is also ideally placed for exploring the enchanting Valle d’Itria, with its villages Martina Franca, Cisternino and Locorotondo whose countryside around is undoubtedly one of the best preserved and fascinating of Puglia and Italy.

La Pietraia is just 20 km far from the amazing Reserve of Torre Guaceto, a wide marine protected area where you can enjoy a bike ride into the wilderness of the park.

Do not miss a trip to Polignano a Mare with his charming old town and the breathtaking views of his cliffs and the beautiful Adriatic sea which is only 50 km away.
