Casa Campanella- Town House
About the home
Lovely Townhouse in Ostuni that has been split into 2 fully equipped apartments. Ideal for groups of friends our families that want to holiday together but have some privacy. The house is in the old town of Ostuni, steps way from the many bars and restaurants surrounding the piazza. There are 4 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 kitchens and 2 TVs. The large roof terrace has seating for 10 people and there are views of the park and the sea.
There is a huge market held in the new part of Ostuni town (bargains galore !) every Saturday morning and a very interesting antiques market held on the 2nd Sunday of every month around the outside of the Villa.
The lovely Blue-Flag beaches along this coastline are just a few minutes drive away. There is a very helpful English lady (Jane )who lives nearby who is always on hand with advice and tips on where to go and what to do !

The Puglia/Molise region
Puglia (or Apulia as it is often known to the English) is the Heel of Italy. An area famous for its peaceful, untouched and natural wildlife with villages full of Baroque and Romanic churches and palazzi. Ostuni is often referred to as the Jewel of Puglia and famous nearby neighbours include the medieval Castel del Monte and Alberobello (the two UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Puglia), Lecce, Locorotondo, Cisternino and Gallipoli. The Grotte di Castellana (Italy’s largest underground cave network – stunning !) and the fantastic Fasano Safari Zoo are only a short drive away too.
Our nearest favourite white sand beach is Pilone II. From Ostuni town drive straight down to the coast and turn on to the highway in the direction of Bari. Look out for the signs for Pilone when you see signs for Rosa Marina.
In the other direction towards Brindisi, a drive of around 10 minutes will bring you to Torre Guacato (at the “Serranova” turnoff). This is a WWF protected National Park with a stunning, totally unspoilt beach and nature walks / cycle paths behind it. This is by far our overall favourite beach in the region.
For those who prefer to hang around in a trendy “Chill Out Bar” and dive from the rocks, there is “Jimmiz Bar” at Gorgonola Beach. Another trendy beach bar which also stays open into the night is "Quarto di Monte" on Monticelli Beach.
For more fun in the water, there is a swimming pool at the ”American Bar” (follow the road to the mini-roundabout at Villanova Port and turn left) or the water park called “In-Aqua” at Lamaforca Beach.
The Ostuni / Ostuni Centre area
Puglia has some of the finest and best value foods and wines in the country. Wine shops (“Entoteca’s”) and supermarkets are stocked with top quality DOCG wines from around £2 per bottle and an 8-course starter (“antipasti” ) in a top restaurant will cost from around £4 !
Of all the many restaurants in and around the Centro Storico we have only ever found two that we DON’T highly rate (the “Locanda Dei Peccati” and the “Don Chisciotte”!).
However our favourite ones amongst the many others are ;
1. Osteria La Sparacima (Next to “Locanda Dei Peccati” mentioned above….don’t get confused !)
2. Osteria Piazzetta Cattedrale (Continue up road from the cathedral main doors, to the top end. It’s on the left. Rated in top 20 European restaurants by Guardian newspaper, but still cheap!)
3. Al Solito Posto (Around the back of the cinema to the left of the Centro Storico)
4. L’Osteria Del Tempo Perso (Michelin Guide)
