Ostuni Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Detached house 2 bedrooms, living-dining rooms kitchen 2 bathrooms WI-FI Parking

Are you looking for an ancient house, finely restored, with WIFI, cozy furniture, which make you feel in a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere in all seasons, including short brakes, bank holidays and weekends? With a nearby parking area? With private terrace overlooking the sea, the medieval Old Town and the municipal gardens? With shops and restaurants at walking distance, and at the same time in a quite area? And not expensive? In the off season if you are a couple you can spend from 20 € per person per night, and even less if you are 3, 4 or 5, because for each additional person over two, you only have to add 5 euro more per night! This "VII Century Detached house" will certainly meet your expectations.

If instead you wish to stay in a typical stone house, a trullo, on the hills overlooking the sea, you can choose our "Trullo Villa Giuliana" (which you will find in this same web-site).

The XVII century detached house in the city centre of Ostuni, is a perfectly restored historical house, on the first floor there is the living room, the bathroom, a closet, the kitchen and the dining room. In the living room, lit by a glass door with balcony, there is a comfortable bedsofa. The access to the second floor is by wooden stairs; here you will find an intimate twin bedroom, with two windows looking out to the municipal gardens; a WC; a bedroom with single bed. The floor is made with stone and wood, doors and windows are made of wood. Like all historical houses it is very cool in summer. The house is provided with gas central heating, all the facilities, washing machine, vacuum cleaner, rentable linen, and wi-fi on request. Placed in a little square paved in stone, and in an intimate position, the house is at the same time in the central area of the town. The owner is a tourist guide and can give you tips on where to go to have holidays close to art, nature, rural areas, away from the beaten tracks, close to local culture.

I loved this apartment!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was charming and comfortable. It wasn't far from the cathedral and some very reasonable restaurants. We had a car and parking was a little tight, but overall, not difficult. From Ostuni it was a short trip to Alberobello and several other sites we'd wanted to see. When we experienced a bit of an Internet access issue, the owner saw to its resolution quickly and cheerfully. I recommend this apartment highly.

This may sound silly, but it was very nice to be able to do my laundry and hang it up on the terrace.

Fantastic location and fantastic owner!

  • 5 of 5

Marina met us at the Piazza della Liberta and took us to our rental which was just off Via Roma in Ostuni. The location is fantastic, just walk down the hill to the Piazza where you can enjoy the Italian lifestyle to its fullest! The Piazza is full of caffes,, gelato shops, and lots of things to see and do. The home is best for a couple or a couple with two young kids. The bedroom is on the second floor where the half bath is located. The living room has a pull-out bed which would be good for kids and the full bath is off the living room. We made meals easily when we were too tired to go out. Marina has stocked her home with everything you could possibly need to prepare your own meals. The stairs are kind of steep, but every other home we saw had steep stairs as well. We're both 70 and didn't have much of a problem with them. The large bed shown in the photo is very comfortable. While there are two very nice televisions, all programs were in Italian, we are in their country after all! I'm sure if you were English speaking and asked Marina to include an English speaking channel, she could arrange that for you if you felt that you needed one. Marina met us as planned, helped us with our luggage, got us settled, and sat with us for over an hour getting us acclimated to the area. The latter helped us enormously as this was our first visit to the area. Marina was terrific and you should feel comfortable in renting her home as she is professional, thoughtful, and extremely helpful. We've only been home two days and I miss our Italian home already! Ostuni and the surrounding towns are so wonderful and Marina's home in Ostuni is the perfect place from which to explore Pulgia! Thank you, Marina, for your kindness and knowledge!

PERFECT PLACE IN PUGLIA!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful stay, highlighted by this very charming home. You couldn't ask for a better location, right in the city center, yet off the main street so plenty of peace and quiet.

The house is lovely, with so many authentic features, from the vaulted ceilings, wood floors, delightful and comfortable decor. We enjoyed the fullly equipped kitchen by cooking local delicacies every day.

There are small and large food shops, bars, restaurants all within walking distance for every taste and budget.

There is a not to miss weekly market on Saturday, as good as any I have ever seen anywhere in Italy.

There are so many great things to mention, but most of all, our most lovely host, Marina.

She went out of her way to not only outfit the property with EVERYTHING you could possibly need and more,

but was a wealth of information and ideas for things to do in the area. She is a sublime host, taking time

to assure a most memorable experience. She speaks with such authority and pride and taught us alot about this very special part of Italy. As a licensed tour guide and with her husband an outstanding organic olive oil

producer, staying here gives you a distinct advantage over other rentals that may not have such knowledgable and passionate hosts.

Our last day we were also treated to a visit to some ancient olive trees that left us breathless.

There are so many things that made this trip so memorable, we would recommend this property to everyone

that wants to explore beautiful Puglia and to have fond memories that make you want to go back as soon as possible.

Notre séjour à Ostuni

  • 5 of 5

À l’été 2014, nous avons séjourné durant deux semaines dans ce très bel appartement spacieux et très abordable où la tranquillité et la propreté étaient au rendez-vous. Il peut loger sans difficulté trois personnes et est bien meublé. Il dispose d’une terrasse avec vue sur la ville. Il se trouve au cœur de la ville d’Ostuni, la città bianca. On peut donc se rendre au centre-ville à pied et y découvrir, notamment, la Place de la liberté, de nombreuses boutiques et des restaurants offrant une cuisine typique.

Ostuni est située dans la magnifique région des Pouilles et est très près de la mer et de villes extraordinaires telles que Lecce, Monopoli, Martina Franca, Alberobello. La gare est accessible en taxi, mais peu de trains passent à Ostuni. Aussi il est préférable d’avoir une voiture pour visiter la région.

Nous avons également pu bénéficier d’un accueil plus que chaleureux de la propriétaire des lieux. Celle-ci, étant guide touristique, nous a permis de profiter de sa connaissance approfondie des attraits des Pouilles : restaurants, fermes, vignobles, oliveraies, etc.

Sans aucune hésitation, nous vous recommandons cette résidence.

So Much Better Than the Pictures

  • 5 of 5

If you've managed to discover Ostuni and Puglia, you're already ahead, but I'm sure by choosing to stay in Marina's wonderful apartment, you've just guaranteed yourself a perfect holiday.

The apartment is as all the other reviews have stated; it's just a few minutes walk from the main square, it's immaculately clean, it has everything you need for a comfortable stay, there's air conditioning, a cute little kitchen to cook your own meals if you wish and the rooftop terrace will allow you plenty of time to enjoy the sunshine and sounds of the city.

But there's something to this apartment that the pictures will never be able to illustrate. It has such a great feel to it. The moment you walk in the shiny, green door and climb the steps up to the first level, it feels like a home. And after enduring what was probably a very long day of travel to get there, that feeling is a welcome relief.

Marina is a terrific hostess, very knowledegable of the local area and sights and as everyone else has also said, she makes amazing olive oil which you can buy and take home with you at the end of your trip.

If you're thinking of a holiday in Puglia, Ostuni is a great place to base yourself. Situated about an hour from Brindisi and half an hour from Bari airports, it's an easy drive to many other towns like Martina Franca, Lecce, Cisternino, Otranto and Monopoli. You certainly won't run out of day trip possibilities. It's not so simple without a car, but you can get the local shuttle to the train station (about 2km's down the hill) and then catch a train to many towns along the coast.

I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Marina's apartment to anyone. It was just what I needed for a chilled out week in a beautiful part of the world.

Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited the beautiful town of Ostuni for the second time.

Firstly I would say that the pictures do not do this house justice. It is far better. The house is set in a quite cobbled street minutes away from the town square which boasts, bars, restaurants, post office, cash machine, fish shop, butchers, everything you need for a relaxing holiday.

The house became our ' home' for 10 days thanks to the lovely Marina, who went above and beyond to help make our stay so enjoyable. We couldn't have asked for a better hostess.

Having arrived a day early due to flight availability, Marina arranged for us to stay on an Olive farm for 1 night ( featured last week on Gino's travels around Italy) Marina met us and took us to the farm and arranged to meet us the following day to take to the house.

The 3 terraces each give views of the old town and sea.

The house was immaculately clean and well equipped.it is obviously loved and cared for. An abundance of linen and towels. We used the washing machine which was a god send.

Without exception the restaurants are lovely. Look for the sign 'osteria' which guarenteed authentic regional cooking.

We actually ate in most evenings.

I would suggest that if you wished to venture further afield a car is a must.

There is a large supermarket " simply" a short distance away, great fish, meet and veg counter.

Ostuni in September reverts from a tourist destination to a wonderful italian retreat. Little or no English is spoken which adds to it's charm.

Overall, we have stayed in many houses across the entire Italy and this would rate as one of the best, with the most charming hostess and family ever!

Thank you Marina and your lovely. family.

Localization in Ostuni is definitely preferred, since this is one of the most beautiful tourist areas of Apulia, rich in archaeological sites, castles, cathedrals, trulli and farms, olive groves, monuments, nature reserves, caves, cliffs and beaches, and day trips allow to know the most beautiful places in Valle d'Itria and the Salento, in fact, less than an hour away you can reach Alberobello, Caves of Castellana, Cisternino, Locorotondo, Martina Franca, Lecce and Otranto, Oria and Grottaglie the Safari Park of Fasano.
