CASA RIFUGIO SUL MARE
HOUSE IN RESIDENCE BY THE SEA IN OSTUNI, 300M FROM THE BEACHES, ADRIATIC SEA PUGLIA
When you say Ostuni you immediately think of the old town. Ostuni, the most beautiful town in the province of Brindisi, has a historic centre famous throughout the world for that magical glimpse of an all-white town perched on a hill, dominating from above the plain of olive trees in the Valle d'Itria. Ostuni, however, also means fabulous sea, beaches where you can spend entire days caressed by the sun and coves where you can take photographs and dive. The sea is clean and transparent, awarded the Blue Flag and the Five Sails by Legambiente and Touring Club for the services offered to tourists and the cleanliness of the beaches. This means clean water and uncontaminated nature, a real picture postcard beach: where the Gente di Mare real estate agency offers a pretty little house for sale.
This pretty and cosy home is located in a renowned residence in the Ostuni marina, completely enclosed and fenced off and with a concierge service all year round. The location allows you to reach the golden sandy beaches and crystal clear sea of beautiful Ostuni in just a few minutes. Only 300 metres away are some of the most beautiful beaches in the town and all services such as supermarkets, bars and restaurants, thanks to which you will never miss city life.
The house on the first floor has a small veranda, ideal for hosting lunches and dinners while breathing in the sweet sea air. Inside it consists of a comfortable living-living room, a functional kitchenette, two bedrooms and a bathroom. The house was renovated a few years ago and has air conditioning.

THE SURROUNDINGS: OSTUNI
Perched on three hills, Ostuni stands in the Itria Valley at 218 m above sea level. It is 42 km from Brindisi and 8 km from the Adriatic coast on which the Blue Flag flies.
The magic of Ostuni, the White City, is linked to the characteristic lime-painting of the old town, a practice still rigorously observed by residents. At the centre of the town stands the 15th-century Romanesque-Gothic cathedral with a large rose window with 24 rays of rare beauty. Along Via Cattedrale, which divides the medieval heart of the town in two, is the former Carmelite Monastery, home to the Museum of Preclassic Civilisations of the Southern Murgia, where the cast of Delia, a pregnant woman who lived 25,000 years ago, is on display.
In Piazza Beato Giovanni Paolo II (Cathedral Square), the eighteenth-century buildings of the Bishop's Palace and the old Seminary face each other, connected by the evocative Scoppa arch. The ground floor of the Episcopal Palace houses the Diocesan Museum, which preserves and exhibits the extraordinary historical and artistic heritage of the Church of Ostuni with masterpieces of international significance. Churches and stately homes line the old town surrounded by the Aragonese walls where Porta Nova and Porta San Demetrio open.
WHAT TO SEE
From the villa, the beaches of the Adriatic Sea can be easily reached in less than 20 minutes. Costa Merlata, Villanova, Rosa Marina and Torre Santa Sabina are examples of several seaside resorts with numerous beaches, restaurants and cafes.
Continuing on towards the village of Carovigno, you will find the beautiful nature reserve of TORRE GUACETO. Here you will be captivated by the succession of free or equipped coves of fine sand. The heart of this area guards a natural paradise characterised by a low, sandy coastline bordered by dunes and interrupted, from time to time, by rocks.
You can then reach other beautiful and characteristic villages, such as:
- CISTERNINO where the Orange Flag, the Italian Touring Club's environmental tourism quality mark, flies;
- ALBEROBELLO the city of trulli, which was recognised as a World Heritage Site in 1996;

- CEGLIE MESSAPICA tangle of alleyways paved with 'chianche', whitewashed arches and ups and downs, inebriates the ancient heart of the village with the inviting aroma of the 'Cegliese biscuit';
- MARTINA FRANCA the pinnacles of the trulli, the expanses of olive groves and the white of the ancient hovels stand out in the green Itria Valley and invite discovery.
You can then discover the great and famous cities of LECCE (nicknamed the 'Florence of the South'), the city of architects, stonemasons and artists, is the city of baroque and stone embroidery, and BARI with the longest seafront promenade in Italy embellished with majestic palaces and the sea breeze blowing through the old town centre, guardian of art, flavours and colours.
