Holidays at our holiday apartments and holiday homes near the white town of Ostuni

From the snow-white of the Old Town, this labyrinth of alleyways and stairs, rises the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta with its late Gothic façade.

In the Old Town’s maze of alleys

Hidden in the maze of alleys and not far from the cathedral lies restaurant Osteria del Tempo Perso, a visit to which you are sure to remember. It is a restaurant in a grotto, where you are served exquisite regional dishes at reasonable prices, the latter in spite of the mention it has received by the restaurant Guide Michelin.
Should you be spending your holidays at holiday apartments Villa Agreste in Ostuni, check with the owner, who is acquainted with the owners of the Osteria. 

Informative finds from the Stone Age

We are given an interesting insight into the life of our ancestors at Chiesa delle Monacelle, which houses informative finds from the Stone Age. About two kilometers east of Ostuni lies a sacred site dating back over 25 000 years where people from the Stone Age worshipped their great Earth Mother.

Mention for best water quality

„Guida Blu“ is published in Italy annually. Mention in this travel guide of holiday resorts concerned for their environment is accorded to those places which combine excellent service for guests with respect for the environment in an active way. Preconditions for being mentioned include not only clean beaches and water quality, but also waste management, air quality, esteem for historic town centers, promotion of regional produce as well as local gastronomy and, finally, responsible area planning [landscape architecture]. The guide is sponsored and edited by the Italian environmental organization Legambiente and by the Touring Club Italiano.

In 2016, Ostuni was among the places in Apulia to be awarded this mention for highest quality. A list of all the places commended is found on the site of Legambiente, where you can also order „Guida Blu“ online.
We recommend the beaches of Pilone 1 and Pilone 2, where the turquoise colored sea is crystal clear and the sand very fine. Parking places are available, only during the summer months parking might be a bit hard to find there.
