Old Town Holiday House in Ostuni



State: Italy
Region: Apulia
Province: Brindisi
City: Ostuni

The location in Ostuni is certainly privileged, since this is one of the most beautiful tourist areas of Apulia, rich in

archaeological sites, castles, cathedrals, trulli (the famous houses with a cone roof) and farmhouses (masserie), olive groves, monuments, nature reserves, caves, beaches and cliffs. One day trips provide an insight into the most beautiful places of Salento and Valle d'Itria, in fact less than an hour away you can reach Alberobello, Castellana Grotte, Cisternino, Locorotondo, Martina Franca, Lecce and Otranto, Oria and Grottaglie, the zoosafari  in Fasano, and the natural reserve of Torre Guaceto.
In Ostuni you can find beautiful hills overlooking the Adriatic Sea. This landscape is  characterized by woods and Mediterranean maquis in the areas called Sant'Oronzo and S. Biagio, while the medieval village overlooks monumental olive groves, where the trees are centuries and thousands years old, which identify the "Park of the ancient olive trees", an area of high landscape value.
Ostuni is only 5 km from the sea, and has a long coastline of 19 km, is characterized by long sandy beaches (i.e. in the Regional Park from Torre Canne to Torre S. Leonardo) and by small bays that alternate with rocks (i.e. in the wild "Pozzella Tower" characterized by luxuriant Mediterranean maquis).

The bathing waters are of good quality and you can enjoy a very beautiful coastal scenery. Ostuni has been awarded several times the "Blue Flag" (by FEE) and, last year, also by the "Five sails" (by Legambiente).

Specifically Ostuni is:
-   from the beaches of "Villanova" - Camerini: 5-6 km.
-   from the "Regional Park of the Coastal dunes of Torre Canne - Torre San Leonardo": 8-9 km
-   from the beaches of "Pozzella Tower", "Costa Merlata", "Cala dei Ginepri":  8-9 km.

In a short distance you can get to the beaches in the nearby town of Carovigno, such as:

- "Torre Santa Sabina": 12 km
-   "Specchiolla", "Pantanaggianni": 15 km
-   The National Nature Reserve and Marine Protected Area of "Torre Guaceto": 20 km.

For those who love trekking or cycling there are well-marked trails and bike paths. There are excursions on horseback in nature, trekking and mountain biking in the Regional park of the coastal dunes. There are cycle routes, equipped with rest areas, along the Trajan road (built by the Romans in the 109 A.C.), surrounded by the ancient olive groves, and the Procaccia route along the coastal area, the path passes by historic farms (XVI - XIX century), the dolmen (II millennium B.C.), roman and medieval underground olive presses.

Trekking is fascinating in the natural scenic areas of San Biagio and Sant'Oronzo, or along the path that reaches the famous archaeological site of Santa Maria d'Agnano, an ancient place of worship where in '91 was found a tomb keeping inside the scheleton of a woman and her fetus, dating 22,000 years ago.

In 15 minutes by car you con reach tennis courts, football pitchs, bowling, cinema, children's play areas (all sites in the town) and various riding grounds in the countryside of Ostuni. Kite-surfing is also possible in the regional park of the coastal dunes.
