LET'S TALK ABOUT OUR LOCATION...
La Cabane is located 3km from the center of Ostuni and 4 km from the Sea.
Puglia is an ideal choice for a beach vacation, but is also a fascinating destination thanks to the beauty of the countryside and the charm of the towns.
Driving through the beautiful Valle d'Itria, you will see Ostuni long before you arrive; the vast 'White City' rising high above the ocean of olive trees that sweep through this verdant area of Puglia.
Built atop a hill , Ostuni is a certifiable labyrinth. A maze of alleyways, staircases and arches, of houses built upon houses, of hundreds of years of history laid out before you in a way no map can truly explain or capture. Dead ends and pretty little gardens, glimpses of the Adriatic sea, green doors and bright blue skies; everything and nothing may lie around the next corner you take.
Ostuni is a city for explorers, and a place to be devoured slowly . It's a city for historians and for those that simply like to stroll amongst beauty and spontaneous Italian moments.
Here are our favourite things to do in Ostuni:
| Go for a wander. As with every Puglian town and village, the very best can be discovered simply by taking a walk through the old town - the centro storico.
| Escape the tourist crowds, and visit the Saturday local market with stalls selling everything from fruits and vegetables to local crafts. The market is held between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. in the vicinity of Via Gabriele D’Annunzio, southwest of Ostuni centre.
| Walk the city walls. On your wanderings throughout Ostuni, you will inevitably find yourself heading downwards toward the city walls - and it's definitely worth it. This solid construction, designed to keep invaders out, give you an entirely different perspective on the White City.
| Between the 24th and 27th August, a celebration of the town's patron saint (the Cavalcata di Sant’Oronzo) takes place. Don't miss the costumed procession in horseback held on the penultimate day.
| We love Puglian cuisine, and one of the very best days to experience it is on the 15th August in Ostuni when the Sagra dei Vecchi Tempi comes to town providing a great opportunity to taste all of the region's incredible offerings and traditional dishes.
| Head to the beach. With all the amazing things to do in Ostuni, it is easy to forget that it is also located just a stone's throw (or a short drive) from some of the most beautiful beaches in Puglia, all found along the aptly named 'Marina de Ostuni'. Be sure to check out Lido Morelli, Quarto di Monte and Torre Pozzella.
| Sample the best of Puglia. Given Ostuni's proximity to a number of popular tourist attractions (namely the likes of Polignano a mare, Locorotondo, Martina Franca, Alberobello, Monopoli and the spectacular Adriatic coastline), it makes a fantastic base from which to explore the highlights of region.
