Location description from owner

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.'

Ostuni

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.
