The Puglia/Molise region
With its crystal blue sea and acres of ancient olive groves, Puglia’s landscape is very different from the rolling countryside of Tuscany and Umbria, but its sunny climate, delicious food, excellent wine and interesting history make Puglia a captivating region just waiting for you to explore.
It is still blissfully Italian; “the undiscovered corner of Italy” and has long been known as Italy’s Wine Cellar. It produces nearly half of Italy’s olive production.
Puglia offers some of the best golf courses in Italy and we have 2 sets of golf clubs at the property for holiday makers’ free use.
From the villa’s central location you can easily visit the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Alberobello and Matera, plus the necropolis of Egnathia, the Castles of Conversano and Monopoli and the baroque city of Lecce, which has been described as the Florence of the South.
The Ostuni countryside is tranquil and the ideal place to relax and unwind.
The beautiful setting and vibrant atmosphere is perfect for families, friends or couples.
Ostuni is one of the most stunning cities of Southern Italy for the dazzling effect of its whitewashed houses. Hints of the Middle Ages are at hand in every corner of the old town, known as “the White Town”, “La Citta Bianca” in Italian.
It is a bustling town, with many restaurants and bars and plenty of night life.
In close driving distance to the villa you are spoilt for choice for wonderful restaurants where you can sample the fantastic locally produced food, such as the delicious burrata cheese, ear shaped orechiette pasta and an abundance of seafood, as well as the local wine. There are also many local interesting markets, Ostuni’s on a Saturday morning being the best.
There is no excuse to ever be bored. You can do as little or as much as you want!!
A guide to the villa, area and restaurants is provided for guests.

A home where love and care has been put into every detail. The owner puts great effort into making the guest fell welcome and at home. Good service. Perfect for small or large groups, as the house is divided into several living areas but also has good areas for large dinners and social mingling.

We spent a week in Ostuni for a friend's wedding. We managed to see a number of Ostunis large rental villas during our trip, and were delighted that we opted to stay at Villa Aurora. The place is quite simply stunning yet still manages to retain a wonderful homely feel. Every possible need has been catered for here with some added extravagances. A huge pool, beautiful roof terrace, full size snooker table, incredible grounds, Sky TV, multiple bathrooms, kitchens & BBQ areas. It is also placed close enough to neighboring towns whilst feeling as though you are in your own exclusive retreat. Linda was a pleasure to deal with throughout the booking & stay and we certainly hope to return one day. Even the bridal party were envious of the place! Thanks!
