Do you have a question about this home or the local area?

Located within a sprawling sixteenth-century building, this apartment offers fantastic views from the bedroom and access to communal areas ripe for mingling and relaxing. We love that you are immersed in the building's history – well-maintained stone walls abound here. While the home can sleep three, we think it's better suited to families, as all the guests are sleeping in the same room. In the communal areas, you'll find spots to read and chat, along with the interior courtyard and bath area. When it's time to explore, you'll find Ostuni town centre a short stroll away.

  • No time for average – We reject thousands of homes worldwide, so you don't have to.
  • Hosts we know – With track records of high-quality hosting.
  • Rated ‘Excellent’ on Trustpilot – Exceptional service before, during and after your stay.

Local guide


About Ostuni

You’ll probably spot Ostuni long before you reach the so-called White City of Puglia. It rises up on three hills, above the rust-red earth punctuated by olive trees. Shambling, narrow streets lead up the hillside to the crowning 12th-century Ostuni Cathedral. It’s a veritable labyrinth of ancient alleyways, where you can sample traditional Puglian fare like handmade orecchiette and oozing dollops of burrata in terrace restaurants, or taste a Salice...
