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.

Recently paid a visit to this hotel and had a pleasant stay. The hotel is spread over a very large site and you could end up walking 400 yard's to your room. Our room was very comfortable and had everything we needed.
The food was good if a little overwhelming because of the number of portions and the size of them. Indoor and outdoor dining is available.
You can walk to the sea but there is no beach,just rocks.
Some of the staff were a little glum, maybe it's the end of the season but a smile costs nothing.
Definitely need a car ro stay here but a good hotel for visiting the Puglia area.

Very disappointing. We booked a 4* after a string of Airbnb as a treat. We were allocated a room in a concrete single storey block that smelt damp and was definitely not even close to 4* accommodation. We were moved to one in the opposite block. Still poor but at least it didn’t smell. The noise from either side plumbing was horrendous made worse only by the fact the cleaners started at 7.30 am on the Sunday!! We were eventually loved to a room in the main block which looked much better and more like a hotel but an out of date holiday camp. However air con didn’t work and there’s no maintenance guy at weekend! Temp in room Was 27 degrees. They told us to sleep with the window open! Luckily someone else checked out early and we were moved to our 4th room (in a 2 night stay) which was nice.
If you are considering this hotel a few important points - make sure you are guaranteed a room in the main building if you want anything like hotel quality. Unless you are planning not to leave hotel at all (or full board) you will need a car. There’s nowhere within walking distance. Ostuni a 15 min drive and is nice.
The pool area is lovely and you can walk down the path to the sea (do t look at all the old furniture and rubbish dumped I assume by the hotel on the side of the path) and that’s quite nice. It’s not a sandy beach - just a small grass area with steps over the rocks to the sea.
Food was good but it’s a set meal so doesn’t feel like eating out.
Staff at reception were mixed some Helpful and understanding - others the opposite.
I would not in all honesty recommend this place to anyone.
