Located in the very heart of Ostuni but in a quiet street, our townhouse has been lovingly restored by a local architect. It has retained all of the unique, original features including beautiful vaulted stone ceilings, but also incorporates all mod cons. The house is beautifully furnished to compliment the high quality restoration work. The terrace and bedroom offer stunning views over the roof tops of Ostuni, the Centro Storico and to the sea beyond. An amazing abundance of restaurants, cafes and shops are all within a short walk of the house. Beautiful beaches are a 10 minute drive away and the very pretty towns of Cisternino and Martina Franca are easily accessible. The townhouse is suitable for all year living as it is warm and cosy in winter (with central heating) but is lovely and cool during the hot summer months with fitted mosquito nets to all windows and doors for added comfort.

Had a fantastic holiday. We have fallen in love with Ostuni partly due to this accommodation. The house was as described lots of character, very clean and well maintained. The terrace had fantastic views over the rooftops and was good for sunbathing, having alfresco breakfasts and evening drinks. Had great fun buying food from the small local shops, can recommend the little shop 50yards up the road for supplies, the bakers a couple of streets away and for fantastic fresh fruit and veg there's a shop on the Main Street just as you come into Ostuni, but you don't need to buy too much food as the restaurants in the town are plentiful and good and the staff really friendly. I would recommend having a car if you want to explore the area as there is so much to see and do. The beaches are clean and about a 15min drive away. We used one of the Lido as they have all the amenities. Parking outside the house has it's problems so park in the Main Street just check the colour of the lines. Plenty of literature about the area in the house which was really handy. Communication was good with the owner and their agent in Ostuni. Would definitely recommend this holiday and would stay again.
