ostuni

I am planning on spending 2 weeks in Ostuni. Is this a beach town, if not, how far the closest beach. Also, can you reccommend a good hotel or B&B. Grazie, Paola

The white town, Ostuni is not a beach town, but very near the coast, and a delightful town to explore.

Stay at the magical Masseria Il Frantoio (only minutes from the coast) and enjoy delicious meal after delicious meal! Rosalba Ciannamea (owner of Il Frantoio) oversees the kitchen! If you are familiar with Lynne Rossetto Kasper of "The Splendid Table" and "The Italian Country Table" fame, Il Fantoio is referenced in her books.

Walk the groves amid ancient olive trees. This agriturismo has an agreement for its guests to use a great beach.

Vagabonda, thank you for your reply. Is there public transportation from the town of Ostuni to the beach? Thanks, Paola

The agriturismo did provide shuttle service to their beach. Contact them directly to see if they still do.

e-mail prenota@masseriailfrantoio.it

The owners are such hospitable hosts.
