Description

Casa Bianca is a cozy and chic studio located in Ostuni's 18th century zone steps from the main piazza. Here you really live like a local and among the locals. It's located on a cul-de-sac street with limited traffic and decorated with the neighbour's laundry and conversations in local dialect as background soundtrack.

Its location is ideal since it's literally steps from Ostuni's main piazza, so you can easily go to the restaurants, cafes and bars around the piazza or the medieval centre and walk to your home after. No driving, no worries! Even the beach can be reached by public transport.

The studio is recently renovated with taste, adding modern comforts while maintaining the original 18th century details like the thick stone walls that keep the place cool in the heat of summer (although there's also an air conditioner to help with that) and painted mostly in white as the they were centuries ago.

There is a newly created shower area with rain shower head because

There is a newly created shower area with rain shower head because we understand that you don't really want to shower above the toilet, and a kitchen corner with induction stove for preparing a quick breakfast or a whole meal!

It's possible to add a single bed or a crib for a small supplement.

The Puglia region

Puglia is where Italians go for a holiday. Relatively unknown abroad, it is a hidden gem that slowly is being discovered by more visitors each year and for good reasons. Kilometres of beautiful beaches on two seas (Adriatic and Ionian), fascinating cities and villages like the trulli capital of Alberobello, the "Florence of the South" that is Lecce or Ostuni the "White City". These cities were often founded by the ancient Greek, and acquired their distinct cultures and histories from the succession of invaders: the Romans, the Normans, the Venetians, the Spaniards and even the Turks.

And then there's the food. It is a place, where thanks to the mild year-round climate, fresh local ingredients are the star of the dishes, and where the best cuisine is the "cucina povera" or poor people's cuisine. It is a heaven for seafood lovers for they are fresh enough to be eaten raw. It is often possible to buy these freshly caught bounty from the sea directly from the fishermen's boats.
Puglia produces some 80% of Italy's olive oil, and anywhere you go you see the silver-green carpet of trees, a lot of them hundreds or even thousands year old, a testimony of the region's history as a major olive oil producing area since antiquity.
Puglia's fertile land also yields another bounty, grapes, which are turned into powerful, fruity wine such as Primitivo or Negroamaro that are gathering accolades for their quality and drinkability.

It may seem that in Puglia there's always something to celebrate; it could be Easter or Assumption, but often the day of the towns' patron saint. It is a time to join in the festivities, eat and be merry and maybe try to dance the typical dance, the 'pizzica' said to help cure from a tarantula spider's bite, but these days just an excuse to let it go and to finally understand what it means to live the 'dolce vita.'

Southern Italy

Ostuni's 18th century neighbourhood is known locally as the Chianca dell'Oro. Chianca is a type of stone widely used in Ostuni and Puglia.
Its location is ideal since it's only 20 metres from Ostuni's main piazza, so you can easily go to the restaurants, cafes and bars around the piazza or the medieval centre and walk to your home after. No driving, no worries! It is also across the piazza to the entrance of Ostuni's medieval centre where most of the city's attractions such as the magnificent cathedral is located.

The neighbourhood is populated by locals, so it's an opportunity to experience Ostuni like one; get delicious bread from the local panificio, fruits and vegetables from the fruttivendolo, melt-in your mouth local cheese and prosciutto from the salumeria, etc. Puglia is of course famous also for the freshness of its seafood, and you can find fishmongers in most corners in Ostuni to indulge in the bounty of the Mediterranean sea.

“Well located studio in lovely Ostuni”

Reviewed 14 Oct 2014

My husband and I recently spent 5 nights at Casa Bianca which is excellently located for exploring by foot the lovely white city of Ostuni. The main piazza is just steps away and it is surrounded by the historical centre, the cathedral, lots of restaurants and shopping. Ostuni iteself is very well locatd for day trips to other cities, quaint villages, beaches and marinas. Casa Bianca is a small studio unit that is attractively decorated but sparsely furnished due to its size (an easy chair or two would have been welcomed). The kitchen is adequately equipped for preparing small meals but with so many dining choices we only did breakfast in. If you don't intend to spend much time in this is a good choice. The owner Giuseppe was very helpful, he met us in the piazza to take us to the unit, showing us where we could park our car nearby. He gave us maps and recommendations for places in town to visit, eat and shop as well as other areas of Puglia to visit and kept in contact with us to make sure everything was fine. This was our first trip to Ostuni and couldn't have asked for a better location and host. We would love to return. Thanks Giuseppe.
