3 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 7
Ostuni, Province of Brindisi, Puglia
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. Off of the lounge, which has an amazingly high exposed stone vaulted ceiling, lies separate double and twin bedded rooms and a kitchennete with granite worktop, sink and fridge...

Interaction with guests
We have a house manager called Pauline who looks after our guests extremely well. She speaks Italian and English and will be there to greet guests from the beginning of your stay. She is also very happy to help with any queries or problems during your stay and is easily contactable by phone as she lives a few streets away from Casa Francesca. Of course we are available to contact but we are based in the UK.

About the neighborhood
Ostuni is an amazing 'gem of a city' perched on a hillside overlooking fertile olive valleys and views of the Adriatic Sea.

Rough Guide ' one of the most stunning small towns of southern italy, a gleaming white splash of sun bleached streets and cobbled alleyways'.

The medieval city know as the 'Citta Bianca', is a vibrant town with a weekly market, friendly locals, amazing restauarants, trendy bars and chic shops. As you meander around the narrow whitewashed streets of the historic centre, you can immerse yourself back in time and then stop to quench that thirst or ward off that hunger at very reasonable prices! The food is authentic italian, why else would the italians travel down from the north to holiday in Puglia 'the breadbasket of Italy'. The regio...
