    Palazzo Auris is a masterpiece of Neo-Renaissance Style. Built and owned by the same family since the mid 1800s, this beautiful palazzo is listed by Italy's Ministry of Arts and Culture as “a protected building of national and cultural interest”, and represents one of the most prestigious and architecturally relevant examples of residential construction in Puglia. It overlooks the central park and it is within walking distance from the finest restaurants and shops in Ostuni and from the medieval, whitewashed citadel.

The fully equipped apartment on the first floor is sumptuous, surprisingly large and has private access to a magnificent garden of orange and tangerine trees. The city of Ostuni counts among... more

If there was one real issue with this apartment, at least for us, it was the fact... more
