The Puglia/Molise region
Puglia the heel of italy, famous for its untouched and natural wildlife with villages full of baroque and romanic churches and palazzi. Unspoilt by mass tourism.
within a short drive from o s t u n i there are many places of interest to suit all, keeping adults and chldren amused:
"Alberobello" famous for its trulli (cone-shaped-houses) protected by Unesco as a unique world heritage site are and the medieval mysterious "Castel del Monte" in the bari area.
"Grotte di Castellana" stunning italy's largest underground cave network.
Fantastic "Zoo Safari" - fasano with a small theme park: roller coaster, log flume,vertical ride drop, etc.
5 major golf courses in apulia at fasano "san domenico": 1015 minutes drive away from ostuni, a challenging 18 holes per 72 course golf club with great views of the adriatic. "barialto" 30-40 minutes renovated for its architecturally designed course winding through palm trees and 5 lakes. Etc...
"Lecce" has wonderful baroque architecture and fine boutiques. Plus the famous "piccolo" theatre.
"Cisternino E Martina Franca" has numerous jazz festivals and plus the local fayres.
"Polignano a Mare" a cliff top town with an elegant well-known restaurant inside an original cave on the sea.
Water park "Acqua-in" definitely worth a visit: water slide, 2 flumes, swimming pool, bar, cafe - lamaforca beach.
Lonely Planet Italy: "Stunning town of stark, whitewashed buildings", "the seemingly disordered tangle of narrow cobblestone streets, many little arched stairways between the houses, recalls a North African Arab medina".
Rough Guide: "One of he most stunning small towns of southern Italy a gleeming white splash of sun-bleached streets and cobled alleyways".
Lonely Planet Puglia e..: "Ostuni has a commanding position, its maze of tightly packed streets twisting around a dramatic 15th century cathedral encircled by medieval ramparts It is the most popular Murgia town, maninly due to its proximity to the coast. In recent years it has become devilishly chic, and has the BEST after dark scene in the region".
So, why Ostuni? unique in its gender: the white city, set between olive-oil-trees facing the adriatic sea, has great sandy beaches and fine authentic italian cuisine.
Ostuni has got "the blue flag", also the lively pilone 1 and 2, both with bars and facilities nearby.
villanova port, monticelli with its posh 'quarto del mare' bar/beach resort.
costa merlata, an other favourite.
Torre pozzella, gorgeous unspoilt torre guaceto a wwf protected natural reserve; with various activites: birdwatching, walking, cycling, bathing, etc... (all beaches - 3 miles).
If u like the idea of getting purposefully lost wondering around the cobbled sundrenched streets of a medieval walled town, stumbling across amazing restaurant (with ridiculously low prices) and trendy bars, whilst catching glimpses sea of turquoise sea through the gaps between the beautiful old whitewashed townhouses, then Ostuni is 4u!!!
