About the location
Visible for miles around, Ostuni is a gleaming tumble of painted buildings and dramatic brick-built palaces, perched almost entirely on a steep hilltop. Ostuni’s whitewashed centro storico lends the town its second name as the ‘White City’ of Puglia, and there are few places as atmospheric found anywhere else in the region. Most visits begin with a walk through the old town, towards the mighty duomo towering high above the Puglian plains. It’s a steep ascent, but one that’ll take you through some of the most magical of Ostuni’s streets: think white-walled passages with uneven floors and pretty cafes tucked into sheltered courtyards. The views at the top are well worth the climb, and the beautiful 15th-century cathedral with its 24-pane rose window is quite a sight, too.
The town’s bar and restaurant scene is richly authentic, with quaint trattorie serving local favourites such as orecchiette – a small, ear-shaped pasta that’s generally eaten with vegetable-based sauces and often served alongside a handsome house red. For true wine connoisseurs, one of the local wine tours is a must-do, taking visitors into some of the region’s finest wineries.
Car hire is recommended for this hotel. Ostuni is 58 miles from Bari airport and 23 miles from Brindisi airport. Simply call us once you’ve completed your booking and we will talk you through the options.

With the flight being delayed and issues with hire car, we arrived at 930 to be told the restaurant was closed, no food! The hotel is in the middle of nowhere so you will need a car, nice pool but no towels, lovey outside area for breakfast but selection is poor. OK for a 2 night stay but that's it really as food could be better. Clean and comfy rooms so not all bad

I too stayed at the hotel as part of an Inghams Tour but as this was not the hotel I had originally been told Inghams were using, I was very apprehensive after having read the previous negative reviews.
My room in the main part of the hotel was a good size, with an excellent shower. The lighting in the bedroom was very dim but the bathroom was very well lit with a magnifying mirror incorporating a light. The television was a good size with a Sky box. A list of television channels would have been a helpful addition.
The wifi in the bedroom was non existent, although the signal was strong around the reception area & on the small terrace outside. I would have expected a card with the wifi code to have been in the bedroom.
The food was marginally better than I had expected, although at times, it was quite disappointing both in the choice of dishes & their presentation. On our last evening, the main course was a choice of either mackerel or a platter of mixed cheese. Much as I love cheese, I did not consider it to be an acceptable main course. On our first evening, when we arrived late, it was irritating the menu for our meal was written in German. They were aware we were on the Inghams??? tour & were not part of a German one.
The drinks were expensive & the only snack available for lunch on our last day was an unappetizing looking cheese & ham sandwich. Again the presentation & quality was awful & I am glad I saw the standard before I ordered one.
The hotel is very isolated & without a car I would not recommend it or consider staying there again.
