Casa Francesca is a stunning 18th Century property in the 'Centro Storico' part of Ostuni. With restoration work completed in July 2008, the house has been thoughtfully and carefully renovated to provide modern spacious accommodation, whilst not detracting from it's original character.

The house is considerably larger than most of the town houses offered for rent in Ostuni.

From the front entrance, the staircase with marble treads and exposed vaulted stone ceiling leads to the first floor living area. The Lounge, with it's rarely found original tiled floor has a three seater leather sofa, together with a sofa bed for 1 adult or 2 young children.

There are also some unusual features such as the bathroom with clear windows - apparently they are one way but who knows for sure - and the amazing... more

The front door opening off the street gave nothing away, but once I climbed the stairs to the first floor I was taken aback by the beautiful spaces inside. The apartment has an impressive reception room and 2 bedrooms which are comfortable, all with original beautifully sculpted ceilings and then a well appointed kitchen, bathroom and another bedroom on the... more

Otherwise all children, parents and grandparents had a lovely time in this house. We particularly enjoyed being so close to the action in Ostuni. The beaches weren't... more
