House | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 5

Casa Esmeralda appeals both to couples for a romantic getaway, and to families with teenagers who love sleeping on the mezzanine platform with its two single beds, and the divan below can be used as a third single bed. The pretty sitting room with its bright furnishings can seat up to 5 for family meals. The alcove kitchen, with its serving hatch into the dining area via a lovely old stone arch, is very typical of the region. It has a Smeg electric fan oven,a ceramic hob, a fridge, kettle, toaster, and all the usual utensils. Off the sitting room there are double doors with old wooden shutters, leading on to a small balcony overlooking the street.

Climb the stone stairs up to the second floor bedroom and there is a small cloakroom/WC on your right.. The double bedroom has an ensuite shower room with walk-in shower, WC, basin and (in an annexe on the terrace) a washing machine. The double bed has romantic white netting, and double shuttered doors lead on to Casa Esmeralda's lower terrace - a real suntrap - which has a table which can sit up to six guests, and a sun umbrella with base. Climb another set of stairs and you are on the top terraces. These have the most spectacular views of the Adriatic and the Cathedral and Ostuni's ancient centre and there are loungers so you can sunbathe in privacy and comfort.

This lovely old house is in a very non-touristy area, just a two minute walk away from the central Piazza with its many bars, cafes and restaurants. Walk for another two minutes and you are in the heart of Ostuni's historical centre with its fascinating kasbah-like alleyways winding around the lovely 15th century Cathedral and its many enticing little boutiques. In the evenings after a meal in one of the dozens of excellent restaurants, enjoy one of our selection of English DVDs or books. In the morning, take your coffee and croissants out onto the balcony and enjoy the sunshine before setting off to explore this beautiful little white-walled hilltop town.
