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.

We got to the hotel at midnight with no reservation having missed the last train back. The staff at reception (Giuseppe & Leonoardo) were friendly, helpful & understanding and there was a room ready for us right away. Everything was clean and tastefully decorated; lovely view from the room of sunrise over Ostuni. Breakfast buffet was also great. We didn't even get to go to the pool!

This is a contemporary upscale hotel about 500 metres from the centro historico on a busy main road SS16 in the town. Decor is muted greys and clinical whites. Room was well appointed with balcony overlooking the sea and the main road. Traffic at night was noisy. Pool area was delightful but up 100 steep steps from the restaurant on 2nd floor. The restaurant was excellent serving Mediterranean food and wines very reasonably priced. Breakfast was a buffet but socially distanced so served by staff. Hot food was just eggs but the pastries, cold cuts and fruit were fine and staff were extremely courteous and helpful. Parking was free in a large gated car park across the road. The hotel was a comfortable walk from lots of dining options in the town. It was very clean and observed hand sanitising and mask wearing rules at all times. We would return.
