Although the hotel was a little hard to find in the dark, walking into the main courtyard was spectacular. Like going back in time and staying on a prosperous Italian estate. The limestone courtyard and building is elegant and grand, and our vaulted room was beautifully appointed with simple antique furniture. The reception rooms are huge and full of fascinating objects, tracing back the history of the farm. After a tour and short history by the owner we were served a beautiful dinner, typical regional food, by a roaring log fire (it is cold in Puglia in March). The wine was delicious. The following day we had a long walk around the estate - wondering through the parterre gardens full of oranges and lemons, divided by the original aqueducts. Walking through the 70 odd hectares of olive groves with views of the sea is truly restorative to the soul! Some of the trees are over 1000 years old. You can buy the farm products form the stores in the lower caves of the building - estate olive oils and jams. The owners could not have been nicer and we felt completely at ease to relax and enjoy their beautiful estate.

The room was comfortable and stylish with all the modern touches. Staff was helpful and were patient with my terrible Italian skills. They spoke and understood English. Though my stay was a quick overnite I would stay there more days if I return to Ostuni

Known as the White City for the white walls of its Old Town, Ostuni is spread over three hills surrounded by olive groves and is one of the most stunning towns in Puglia. Just a few miles from the Adriatic coast and its beautiful sandy beaches, in the summer this small town bustles with tourists enjoying the many magical alleyways, ornate architecture, bars, and restaurants.
