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.

Many of the reviews I read are unjust. Maybe because they were in busy season it was different. We had a fabulous time. Very covid secure . Welcoming reception at all times. Breakfast buffet well organised as per covid safety & plentiful and fresh. You can ask for extras to be cooked eg omelettes etc. The gym is small but clean. Pool was immaculate & very peaceful. Pool bar and lunch food there was plentiful and varied for our needs. It is in a quiet location which we wanted but could walk to a few other rocky inlets and beaches (to the left across from hotels stony beach) there are couple of snack bars/ beach bar and a 5* hotel we ate at one evening. The hotels stony beach is lovely for swimming & has plenty of sail shades , beds and comfy cushions for the beds. Showers and toilets. The hotels beach is a short walk to the right from the stony one. The hotel can drop you there , just ask at reception, also if you let them know you are going to the beach they take beds and umbrella and it is all set up for you ! Taxis are expensive, it is 20??? to either Ostuni or Santa Marina one way. But both worth a trip for a evening meal , stroll and cocktails. I would definitely return with my hubby next time and maybe get a car if we can hire one for a good price.

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
