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 property. 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.

The customer service on this hotel was really bad. I looked up for this hotel for my boss and I recommended to him because I though it was good,. Unfortunately, he did not enjoy his stay and I looked really bad for your bad service.
The room was very small, dirty and the internet did not work. He tried to discussed the situation with the concierge but their answer was that they could not do anything for him. No solution was given so my boss left the premises really mad.

This is a terrific resort with excellent local cuisine. Has its own train to the beach, though the walk is very enjoyable. Several spotless pools, high quality entertainment and lots of places to chill out. In October, out of season it is a bit remote from alternative eating places and a taxi to Ostuni (there is no bus out of season) costs a lot of money. If you need to be in a quiet room, make sure you ask in advance for the entertainment can be loud. But ... we will go back.
