Occupying the first floor of an elegant building dating back to the 40s, this enticing apartment combines modern comfort with vintage touches to create a home that offers something a little outside the norm. Shuttered windows, balconies with ornate wrought iron railings and eye-catching frescoes painted on vaulted ceilings give way to vintage-inspired modern furniture, a comfortable bed and a magnificent walk-in shower. The location is hard to top, with the stark white walls of Ostuni's old town lying in wait just outside the front door. Step out to discover its winding backstreets, neighbourhood haunts and historical monuments – all within a five-to-ten-minute walk. Beyond the city limits, the coast is little more than 10km away – ideal for those who want to spend a day or two catching some rays on the beach and dipping their toes in the deep blue hues of the Adriatic. Elsewhere, the Valle d'Itria (25km) is liberally sprinkled with wineries – the route lined with breathtaking towns and villages.

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...
