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 ... !!

Magnifico!!

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

We had a lovely time in Ostuni, the apartment was clean and had everything we needed.

Its location is also excellent and we enjoyed using the roof terrace, with its splendid views of the city and

park .

Wifi worked well and we were provided with clean fresh linen,comfortable beds and parking close by was

easy to find.

Generally, the whole process of booking and checking in, was easy and our hosts were very helpful.

We would definitely recommend staying here and hope to return to this beautiful city some day.

PS the local cuisine is cheap and excellent quality:] recommend trying the Oricchiette chime de rapa!!

Great central apartment and spotlessly clean

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

This was our second time holidaying at Casa Campenella in Ostuni. Initially we weren’t sure about booking because of some recent negative reviews on the site. We called the Owner and she reassured us that the reviews were disparaging and untrue. We are so pleased we chose to book the apartment again. The place was spotless and we even got some winter sun so we could enjoy a glass of prosecco on the roof terrace enjoying the lovely views. The location is perfect for exploring the old town of Ostuni. The apartment has all the stuff you need, no oven but a hob and microwave with oven facility to prepare pasta and hot food. With all the wonderful eateries in the area that was all we needed.. perfect. The bathroom is a good size and has the unique domed ceilings you get in Puglia. Overall a great base and very reasonably priced. We had a great time and would definitely stay here again. Highly recommended.

Disappointing and dirty

  • 1 of 5
Verified Stay

Flat was dirty and we had to buy our own cleaning products to clean as there were none in the flat. Wooden table had layers of dirt and had obviously not been cleaned in a very long time. Bathroom not fit for purpose. Disgusting shower curtain that had not been cleaned/replaced in ages. Shower curtain too long so was damp and mouldy and very unhygienic. Shower head needed descaling so the already unsatisfactory flow of water squirted all over the place making the floor very wet and slippery. To make matters worse, bathroom is up 3 very steep and slippery steps from the kitchen, not ideal for young children. Cooking facilities were the bare minimum and all looked grubby. We did not use them at all and ate out during our week stay. Luckily Ostuni is awash with eateries, so this was not a problem. We were 2 adults and found the facilities inadequate, cannot imagine how a family with young children would cope. Sheets were grimy also. The property description does mention the fact that the stairs leading to the property were not suitable for people with mobility issues but nothing can prepare you for how steep and narrow they actually are. Again, would hate to have to negotiate these with young children. The only positive is the location but I am sure that it would not be difficult to find a much better standard of accommodation in the area as Ostuni is a very popular (possibly too popular) tourist destination. In retrospect, somewhere like Martina Franca would make a more authentic base from which to explore beautiful Puglia.

Owner's Response: We are so sorry that the guests found the apartment so terrible. This comes as a complete surprise to us as the only contact the guest made during their holiday was to our house manager about the shower outlet being blocked. Our cleaner went round directly and resolved the issue. We find it impossible to believe the description of how dirty the place was e.g. layers of dust on the table and dirty shower curtain. We put a new shower curtain in recently and we had guests with children who left 2 days before this guest arrived who had no complaints and enjoyed their stay. We pride ourselves in ensuring any issues that may arise are resolved. This review is harsh in the extreme and packs a punch to try and discredit our apartment. Surely if they were so appalled by the cleanliness of the apartment then they would have contacted us or complained on arrival or during their stay. We would have then done our best to resolve any genuine issues. Our house manager meets and greets and shows the guest around … we understand these guests were very happy with the apartment on arrival. There are so many discrepancies in this review we would be writing a novel to respond. We offer a clean central apartment in Ostuni at a very reasonable price and if there are any issues or problems we will resolve them asap through our house manager based in Ostuni or by contacting us directly … For future guests we can only hope that you can see through and beyond this review, look at previous reviews for this year on this site and Tripadvisor and make your own judgement. Please call us if you want to chat through. We welcome you to our apartment in Ostuni Tania and Mike

Infested by pigeons. Needs updating.

  • 1 of 5
Verified Stay

The property has a pigeon's nest on the bathroom window, therefore it was not possibile to open the window during our stay. Inclosed balcony could not be opened as well due to up to 16 pigeons on the oposite building (only 3 meters away) and to top it the pigeons' poo was just outside the front door.. This made the apartment with no air conditioning unbareably hot and stuffy. Facilities are old: fridge, washingmachine, shower, sofa (stained and old).... First week we did not have internet: the technical support had to come to fix it.

The owner did not answer the phone calls,

The house keeper's explanations were that she did not know the house well.

I would never book this property again,

Owner's Response: Oh dear. We have had our apartment in Ostuni for eleven years and fortunately in that time only a handful of guests who have dismayed and shocked us. Ivana who stayed in our apartment for 2 weeks from late July has chosen to write this disparaging review. Prior to this review the only direct contact initiated by Ivana was an email a few days after her holiday. The email was a one liner saying disappointed , want our security deposit back and three hundred pounds refund. We had no contact from her during her stay and no explanation or feedback on why she was disappointed. So I called her to find out what the issues were. It transpired that she had a pigeon phobia. I explained that Ostuni had its fair share of pigeons like most places in Italy and that we had no control over where they flew or perched. We have never ever had any reports of pigeons flying into the house but were sorry she felt unable to open any of the windows in the apartment. She admitted her phobia was extreeme. The other issues she raised were the WIFI which had a wobble and she was happy that was resolved. A small leak of water after she had used the washing machine. We apologised for the inconvience and within days of her feedback have installed a new washing machine. We charge a very reasonable rate for our two bedroom Ostuni apartment and the guests that left a day before Ivana arrived submitted a good review. We always welcome feedback and respond quickly to issues we have control over. Contact during guests holidays are usually with our house manager but we are open to direct contact. In this instance we had no contact from Ivana during her stay and no contact from our house manager flagging any concerns that had not been resolved. We have known our house manager for eleven years and have total faith and trust in her services. We can only assume that Ivana was not happy that we didnt agree to her demand of a forty per cent refund. We understand from Ivana that she has now bought a house in Ostuni so will no longer require a holiday rental. We wish her well with her new house, sympathise with the pigeon phobia but are disappointed and saddened that she chose to write such a scathing review. You can see from previous reviews that this one stands out in its extreeme negative tone and content. We warmly welcome future guests and offer you a great central base in Ostuni . Tania and Mike

Great Location

  • 4 of 5
Verified Stay

Spent two weeks here great location for getting to Bari and Leccie and all the other towns and cities in-between. Great if you are willing to drive beach about 7/9 Km away. Ostuni is a great place and most of the locals we met where very helpful Doesn't have a lot to do for 15 to 18 year old but would recommend for a short stay.

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5
Verified Stay

Initially disappointed as I entered the building and apartment but turned out to be a fantastic place to stay. Good value, good location beside oldest part of town, very clean and comfortable. Best was the views from terrace where you could sit and eat - Ostuni beautiful.

Couple of minor problems dealt with very quickly by excellent staff readily available.

Would definitely stay there again and recommend to others. Need to note there are steep steps to apartment and terrace.
