Why Marina F. Tanzarella chose Ostuni
This has been our home, till we've had our beautiful children
What makes this House unique
The house is well cared for, in the forniture and the materials, for instance kitchen and bathroom tiles are hand-painted, on the stairs and in the double bedroom there is an antique oak parquet floor, the pavement of the rest of the house is made of typical local stone. We pay a lot of attention to cleaning, and wish that our guests feel welcomed in a warm and nice atmosphere

Central atmospheric apartment
On 3 floors, old house with very steep stairs. Lovely atmospheric place. Well equipped and comfy bed. Sun area on roof. Slightly primitive but effective shower arrangements. Owner delightful and quick to sort out any issues we had over a 2 week stay.
Well maintained home in Ostuni which served a the perfect base for our Puglia trip
A gracious and helpful hostess who provided much useful information and support. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Ostuni and have no doubt that we will return there.The beds were comfortable and the kitchen well equipped for our needs with shopping and cafes and restaurants close by. We had no difficulty in Parking a " somewhat too big" Peugeot estate car and in accessing the main roads and autostrada.The weather in March was pleasantly warm and ideal for walking around the local attractions
Thank you very much Paul, it has been a pleasure to welcome you! And it is always a great pleasure to see our guests again.
I loved this apartment!
The apartment was charming and comfortable. It wasn't far from the cathedral and some very reasonable restaurants. We had a car and parking was a little tight, but overall, not difficult. From Ostuni it was a short trip to Alberobello and several other sites we'd wanted to see. When we experienced a bit of an Internet access issue, the owner saw to its resolution quickly and cheerfully. I recommend this apartment highly.
This may sound silly, but it was very nice to be able to do my laundry and hang it up on the terrace.
Fantastic location and fantastic owner!
Marina met us at the Piazza della Liberta and took us to our rental which was just off Via Roma in Ostuni. The location is fantastic, just walk down the hill to the Piazza where you can enjoy the Italian lifestyle to its fullest! The Piazza is full of caffes,, gelato shops, and lots of things to see and do. The home is best for a couple or a couple with two young kids. The bedroom is on the second floor where the half bath is located. The living room has a pull-out bed which would be good for kids and the full bath is off the living room. We made meals easily when we were too tired to go out. Marina has stocked her home with everything you could possibly need to prepare your own meals. The stairs are kind of steep, but every other home we saw had steep stairs as well. We're both 70 and didn't have much of a problem with them. The large bed shown in the photo is very comfortable. While there are two very nice televisions, all programs were in Italian, we are in their country after all! I'm sure if you were English speaking and asked Marina to include an English speaking channel, she could arrange that for you if you felt that you needed one. Marina met us as planned, helped us with our luggage, got us settled, and sat with us for over an hour getting us acclimated to the area. The latter helped us enormously as this was our first visit to the area. Marina was terrific and you should feel comfortable in renting her home as she is professional, thoughtful, and extremely helpful. We've only been home two days and I miss our Italian home already! Ostuni and the surrounding towns are so wonderful and Marina's home in Ostuni is the perfect place from which to explore Pulgia! Thank you, Marina, for your kindness and knowledge!
Diar Diana and Thomas, thank you so much for your opinion about our house. It has been very nice to meet you too, and I hope we can meet again. You have been perfect guests as well. Best Regards! Marina F.
PERFECT PLACE IN PUGLIA!
What a wonderful stay, highlighted by this very charming home. You couldn't ask for a better location, right in the city center, yet off the main street so plenty of peace and quiet.
The house is lovely, with so many authentic features, from the vaulted ceilings, wood floors, delightful and comfortable decor. We enjoyed the fullly equipped kitchen by cooking local delicacies every day.
There are small and large food shops, bars, restaurants all within walking distance for every taste and budget.
There is a not to miss weekly market on Saturday, as good as any I have ever seen anywhere in Italy.
There are so many great things to mention, but most of all, our most lovely host, Marina.
She went out of her way to not only outfit the property with EVERYTHING you could possibly need and more,
but was a wealth of information and ideas for things to do in the area. She is a sublime host, taking time
to assure a most memorable experience. She speaks with such authority and pride and taught us alot about this very special part of Italy. As a licensed tour guide and with her husband an outstanding organic olive oil
producer, staying here gives you a distinct advantage over other rentals that may not have such knowledgable and passionate hosts.
Our last day we were also treated to a visit to some ancient olive trees that left us breathless.
There are so many things that made this trip so memorable, we would recommend this property to everyone
that wants to explore beautiful Puglia and to have fond memories that make you want to go back as soon as possible.
Anche voi siete stati ospiti carinissimi. Sarebbe molto bello rivedervi! Grazie.
Notre séjour à Ostuni
À l’été 2014, nous avons séjourné durant deux semaines dans ce très bel appartement spacieux et très abordable où la tranquillité et la propreté étaient au rendez-vous. Il peut loger sans difficulté trois personnes et est bien meublé. Il dispose d’une terrasse avec vue sur la ville. Il se trouve au cœur de la ville d’Ostuni, la città bianca. On peut donc se rendre au centre-ville à pied et y découvrir, notamment, la Place de la liberté, de nombreuses boutiques et des restaurants offrant une cuisine typique.
Ostuni est située dans la magnifique région des Pouilles et est très près de la mer et de villes extraordinaires telles que Lecce, Monopoli, Martina Franca, Alberobello. La gare est accessible en taxi, mais peu de trains passent à Ostuni. Aussi il est préférable d’avoir une voiture pour visiter la région.
Nous avons également pu bénéficier d’un accueil plus que chaleureux de la propriétaire des lieux. Celle-ci, étant guide touristique, nous a permis de profiter de sa connaissance approfondie des attraits des Pouilles : restaurants, fermes, vignobles, oliveraies, etc.
Sans aucune hésitation, nous vous recommandons cette résidence.
Localization in Ostuni is definitely preferred, since this is one of the most beautiful tourist areas of Apulia, rich in archaeological sites, castles, cathedrals, trulli and farms, olive groves, monuments, nature reserves, caves, cliffs and beaches, and day trips allow to know the most beautiful places in Valle d'Itria and the Salento, in fact, less than an hour away you can reach Alberobello, Caves of Castellana, Cisternino, Locorotondo, Martina Franca, Lecce and Otranto, Oria and Grottaglie the Safari Park of Fasano.
Other Activities: hiking in nature.
