Located on the ‘heel’ of south-eastern Italy Ostuni, which is often referred to as the White Town due to the white architecture, is an under-the-radar destination, perfect for holidaymakers searching for walks through olive groves, an authentic Italian experience and excellent restaurants. A typical day in Ostuni could include a morning walk around the old town, with a visit to the cathedral and the Bishop's Palace, followed by an afternoon drive down to the ocean and some sunbathing with a paperback. Finish your day off with a trip to one of the many renowned restaurants, which serve local delicacies such as orecchiette pasta, artichokes, fava beans and rocket.
Renting holiday accommodation in Ostuni
There is a growing trend among travellers to book self-catering accommodation for their holidays rather than stay in hotels or bed and breakfasts, which were once the norm. People have recognised that they would rather save money, while also enjoy extra freedom to come and go when they wish and not be tied down with set eating times. By booking holiday accommodation in Ostuni with HouseTrip, holidaymakers can find something for their every need and enjoy a more authentic and independent experience, suitable for groups of all sizes.
Where to stay in Ostuni
Pick up some olive oil – the Puglia region contributes 70% of all olives grown in Italy – direct from one of Ostuni’s many groves, which will lay just a short walk or drive away from your self-catering countryside villa, and combine it with local tomatoes, ricotta and fresh pasta to produce a signature Puglian dish. Watch the sunset from your apartment’s terrace in the Ostuni suburbs, while you enjoy a bottle of wine produced with the local Negroamaro grape. If you crave the intimacy and buzz then your cosy central apartment will mean you are never more than a couple of minutes away from the action. HouseTrip caters for prospective Ostuni holidaymakers with a wide range of requirements and budgets. Take a look around the website and you will soon find the perfect Ostuni holiday rental.
Ostuni with the family
There are a wide range of things to do and see in Ostuni, which makes it a great place for the whole family. From lazy days spent on the beach building sandcastles, renting pedalos and swimming with the kids, to hikes up the mountainous countryside and time spend getting lost amongst the famous white walls and hubbub of the city. Due to its striking craggy landscapes, golden beaches and renowned white buildings, Ostuni is perfect for getting in touch with your creative side. Take some paints, pastels or crayons and see what masterpieces your children can create. These pieces of art, rather than the photos you have taken, are what you will cherish forever.
