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.
Ostuni is 58 miles from Bari airport and 23 miles from Brindisi airport. We recommend hiring a car in your destination. Simply call us once you’ve completed your booking and we will talk you through the options.

Stayed with a group touring Puglia and this was our base. Our room was excellent (and huge). Staff could not have been more friendly or more helpful (this is very much a feature of this hotel). Food was simple, but delicious. It is located on a main road into Ostuni, so rooms at front of hotel have good views, but road noise, if the window is open. Not a problem for us, particularly as the window has to be closed when using the air-con. In short, a very good hotel, we'd highly recommend it and we are looking look forward to our next visit.
