Chic and extremely comfortable B&B with pretty walled garden located in the heart of the beautiful, bustling hill-top ‘White City’ of Ostuni.
Arrival day: Any Car hire: Recommended
Located in the beautiful, bustling town of Ostuni the ‘White City’ – Casa d’Autore has been transformed to become a chic and extremely comfortable B&B run by an attentive mother and daughter team.
The entrance is through some unassuming wooden doors that give no impression of the wonderful surprise that sits just behind them. The huge hall with its lovely stone floor, high ceiling, antique sofas and guilt mirrors immediately creates a sense of peace, comfort and elegance, with large French windows looking out over the charming walled garden.
Two of the three bedrooms lead from the hall and are delightfully furnished with more antiques and white and cream coloured fabrics that compliment the local stone floors, they have doors that lead out onto the upper terrace of the gardens. The bright white cotton bed linen is of the best quality and the beds are wonderfully comfortable (you may struggle to leave them in the morning). Another bedroom has its own small private terrace and the fourth bedroom is accessed from the garden and is again beautifully decorated with great taste and imagination (once it was the wood store for this large townhouse). All the bedrooms have super ensuite bathrooms with spacious showers and fluffy towels, plus TV, heating and air conditioning.
The walled garden is a paradise rarely found in the heart of town. Lemon and orange trees create wonderful scented shade during the hotter months and there are plenty of seating areas where you can simply relax and enjoy the tranquillity of this delightful garden.
Breakfast is served in the separate dining room during the cooler months, and outside in the garden during the summer months, with a selection of local cakes, biscuits, cereals and fresh fruit the perfect way to start the day before a stroll around this fascinating white-washed town in the Pugliese sunshine.
