    Stay in a Historically Listed Building

    Stay in a Historically Listed Building

    The beautiful hilled town of Ostuni in southern Italy is known as the White City because of the white houses that casade down its hillsides. This apartment is located in Ostuni inside a grand palazzo, built around 1800, and offers up lavish interiors and the best of traditional Italian style.

    Remarkably, this property has been in the hands of the same family since it was built around 1800. Built as a wedding gift from the current owner's great-great-grandfather to his wife, it is ornate neoclassical in style and listed by the Italian Ministry for Arts and Culture as a monumental building.

    The palazzo features a series of grand halls on the ground floor, with lovely arched ceilings. Until World War II, this was where horse-drawn carriages would pass through, allowing their passengers to alight. An elegant staircase leads from the Grand Hall to the piano nobile, or first floor, where the family used to live. This living area has now been divided into luxury apartments.

    The apartment has two bedrooms with king-sized beds. One can be split into two singles, and there is an additional single in the living room, as well as a baby cot.

    One of the most interesting features of the palazzo is its elevated, hanging garden, which is located on the first floor and accessed exclusively through this apartment.

     

    ADDITIONAL FEATURES

    There is a satellite TV, washing machine, dishwasher, microwave, cooker, and a paddling pool.

     

    AROUND

    Known as "La Città Bianca" (White City), Ostuni is located in the province of Brindisi, about 8km from the coast. Notable features include a citadel built on top of the hill, ancient walls, the Bishop's Palace, and a number of palazzi owned by local aristocratic families. The surrounding countryside is littered with Pugliese "masserie", fortified large estate-farms.

    The town is part of the 6km Parco delle Dune Costiere, or Coastal Dunes Park, which can be traveled by bicycle or on foot. It is also well located to explore regional points of interest including Lecce (76km) and Bari (80km). Don't miss the beaches of Rosamarina and Pilone, and the Torre Guaceto nature reserve.
