“Romantic apartment - L'Alcova, Ostuni”
Reviewed 24 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Such a beautiful apartment. Tastefully decorated and amazing stone architecture. Space to sit at the table on the terrace. Really romantic and cosy. Lots to see in Ostuni and the surrounding area. Brilliant restaurants, shops, lovely beaches and countryside. I would definitely recommend hiring a car (smart cars most practical) to make the most of the area. The owners provide a huge amount of advice and information which really helps you to make the most of your stay and have an authentic Italian experience. I can't recommend L'Alcova highly enough!

“La Terrazza - Ostuni”
Reviewed 5 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

This is a wonderful apartment with air conditioning and wi-fi and an array of books and films to view which was an asset for our 15 year old son. The decor was perfect with a shabby chic theme. It was a treat to wander around the town each evening and soak in the atmosphere with each trip uncovering new gems! Fantastic cafe culture and our excellent hosts, Tim and Angela's tour guide information and tips allowed each day to be completely different. We loved the views of the sea and city from spectacular roof terrace and had the opportunity to learn Italian cooking from AnnaMaria and more importantly how to make orriechete! A repeat visit to this property is a must!

“Wonderful apartment in beautiful Ostuni!”
Reviewed 3 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

My husband and I stayed at l'alcova to celebrate our wedding anniversary, it was perfect! We have visited puglia a couple of times before but always stayed just outside ostuni, it was lovely to be in the town this time. L'alcova is a beautiful, bijou apartment, but has everything that you need! Angela and TIm were brilliant at passing on lots of valuable local knowledge on restaurants, beaches etc and we really appreciated the wonderful arrival pack including fresh bread and prosecco! It was a fabulous holiday and we hope to return shortly!

“L'Alcova Ostuni”
Reviewed 27 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

La Citta Bianca is exquisite and L'Alcova is the perfect base from which to enjoy it. The apartment is beautifully furnished in the 'shabby chic' style and has everything you could possibly need, including charming neighbours to help improve your Italian. The delightful, traditional shops and cafes in the Piazza Liberata are just a few moments' walk away and 'buses and trains nearby are frequent and easy to negotiate. We loved the apartments so much that we can't wait to return in September to try La Terrazza and Casa Esmeralda. Tim and Angela have thought of everything to ensure that you have a perfect holiday - thank you.

“La Terrazza - third stay for David and Ro”
Reviewed 13 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

It is said that you will be dissapointed if you go back to something you really enjoyed, but not so Ostuni. On our third stay in La Terrazza it just got better! This immaculate holiday apartment is a gem and it seems that every reviewer shares our opinion. Maybe the stairs seemed steeper this time, but when you go into the expanse of the lounge and on to the terrace it is all certainly worthwhile. Thank you again Tim and Angela, not forgetting Jane the manager. See you again!

“Best view in Ostuni”
Reviewed 8 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We stayed at La Terrazza in late May. The apartment is large, airy, and probably is more light than any other apartment around, given the top floor and corner. The location was incredibly convenient. Wonderful eating places abound, and day trips to surrounding towns (take back roads, well worth it) are of course a must. The apartment is just steps from the historic center, yet quiet. The view from the patio over the town, then the 5 or 6 miles of olive groves, and then the sea, is to be savored at least 2x a day.
It is a bit of an adventure to get the luggage up to the apartment when arriving, and our car was too big, but it was well worth it. After a week there, we knew how to get around the town, so leaving was a breeze. We went knowing it would be a good time; we left knowing we would probably return.

“Noreen & Ruth - Wonderful apartment in Ostuni”
Reviewed 7 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

I cannot recommend the lovely L'Alcova apartment more highly. The decor is stylish and it is well stocked with books and films (in the unlikely event that the weather is wet). It is brilliantly located just 2mts from the Plaza Liberata where there is a tourist information shop, excellent restaurants and the local bus stop. Angela and Tim had provided exceptionally detailed information by e-mail before our holiday and provided another folder of information and maps in the apartment. The welcome pack was excellent - no need to shop until the first afternoon. The apartment was immaculate with lovely towels and the kitchen was extremely well equipped. We had a wonderful 9 days in Ostuni and look forward to returning.
