About the property

Apartment in Ostuni, Puglia, Italy - Central Location, huge roof terrace

Stunning, historical 2 double bedroom apartment in the centre of Ostuni over looking the park with double height barrel vaulted ceilings and a street facing balcony. The apartment is in an ideal central location, decorated in keeping with the historical ambiance of the property but with a modern contemporary feel. We have exposed some of the stone internally to highlight the traditional features of the house. There is a large roof terrace with panoramic views over the sea, historical central Ostuni and the Park (Villa Communal). We have provided chairs, tables and sunloungers on the terrace. The nearby park has a large selection of exotic vegetation, a cafe and a children's play area. The apartment is in the old town of Ostuni, steps way from the many bars and restaurants surrounding the piazza and the historical centre. We provide sheets and towels. There is a flat screen tv, a DVD player, a CD player and we also have WIFI. There is free parking close to the apartment. The lovely Blue-Flag beaches along this coastline are just a short drive away. Pauline our English housekeeper can also give advice on the area and places to visit.

About Tania

We bought this property after a holiday to Puglia. We travelled around for a few weeks and fell in love with the area. Ostuni was the perfect central location. A magical place, a white city perched on a hill overlooking the sea and olive groves. We are based in London (although originally from the North East of England) and spend as much time as we can in Ostuni.

Tania purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Tania chose Brindisi area

We love good Italian food and warm weather .. and there is plenty of both in Ostuni! The people are friendly and there is so much to do ... walking, cycling, site seeing, beach days, exploring caves, historical buildings and unspoilt countryside ...

What makes this apartment unique

The Apartment really appealed to us as it is so perfectly located. It is a few minutes walk from the old town and main piazza and a short walk to the park. It is an historical building with a large roof terrace where you can see the park, old town and sea... Plus there is an amazing bakery at the bottom of the road ... !!

Special interest holidays:

It is possible to hire bikes and we can also recommend local cookery courses. There are also tennis courts in Ostuni.

Coast/Beach:

Beaches are about 10 minutes drive. Our nearest favourite white sand beach is Pilone II. Pilone 1 is also lovely with natural shade from the foliage and trees surrounding the beach. There is also a cafe there set back from the beach. 10 minutes will bring you to Torre Guacato (at the 'Serranova' turnoff). This is a WWF protected National Park with a stunning, totally unspoilt beach and nature walks/cycle paths behind it. There is also a water park called 'In-Aqua' at Lamaforca Beach.

Travel:

Ryan air fly direct to Brindisi and Bari from Stansted Airport. BA fly from Gatwick to Bari. From Brindisi to Ostuni is a 25 minute drive and from Bari a 45 minute drive. Car is recommended - although we can organise a taxi for you and there are local buses and trains.

Distances:

'Trulli-village' at Alberebello- Cisternino and Loccorotondo on-route, 20 mins. Grotte di Castellana (Italy’s largest underground cave network stunning!), 30 mins. Fasano Safari Zoo, 30 mins. Lecce (City of impressive Baroque architecture), 40 mins. Otranto and coast line, North of Lecce, 1 hour. Galipoli- On the West coast of Puglia- lovely walled, ancient town with long stretches of sandy beaches, 1 hour. Trani- North of Bari lovely sea harbour with many good restaurants and bars, 1 hour.

Further Details:

There are many good restaurants in and around the Centro Storico. favourite ones are: 1. Osteria La Sparacima. 2. Osteria Piazzetta Cattedrale. Rated in top 20 European restaurants by Guardian newspaper, but still cheap! 3. Al Solito Posto. 4. L’Osteria Del Tempo Perso (Michelin Guide). All restaurants in Italy legally have to close for one day of each week to allow the employees to have a rest. For some reason all but two of Ostuni’s restaurants have chosen Monday! Luckily, Al Solito Posto isn’t one of them. If you fancy eating at home during the evening Jane can recommend one of the excellent takeaway pizza places or one of the shops that sell spit-roast chicken with potatoes (£4 for a complete dinner for four). The many bars of Ostuni are all packed every night in July and August, but if you come out of season (October-May), Saturday is the night for partying! Locals tend to eat late and generally bars will not even start getting busy until at least 11pm with many 'peaking' at around 1am and closing about 4am. The restaurant opening times in Ostuni are 12pm until 3pm and 7pm until 11pm. It is important to work round these times as it can be frustrating if you are looking to eat between 3pm and 7pm as all the kitchens are closed! You will find bars open for drinks etc. Most of the shops are closed all afternoon for siesta. And on Sunday and Thursday most are closed all day. The supermarket near the Pink Lady cafe is open 8am until 1pm and then reopens 5pm until 8pm. It is closed half day on a Thursday. Euro Spar shop is open every day 7am until 21.00pm- and Sunday 8am until 1pm. Jane can give you directions to this shop- it is 5-10 minutes drive from Casa Campenella or a 20-30 minutes walk. Plenty of banks with cash points. We do provide an information pack in the apartment with lots of information on places of interest. We also have info on hiring bikes and photography and cookery lessons if of interest.
