We have just returned from a lovely holiday in Ostuni staying in apartment L'Ombroso.
The apartment is located very close to the centre of Ostuni and provides a perfect base to explore Puglia. The apartment is tastefully furnished and is fully equipped with all that you might need. Angela & Tim provide very comprehensive information on the apartment/ Town and local area-nothing is left to chance which is great.
We stayed at L’Alcova and L’Ombroso apartments as 2 couples in late April .It was a very quick last minute decision to have a weekend away and the apartments were all that they had promised - and more .Restored beautifully by Angela and Tim the apartments are both charming and romantic , and we spent a very relaxing - albeit far too short weekend in beautiful Ostuni.Everything is in walking distance and there were no end of restaurants , bars , gelaterias .Plenty to do , and ideal as a base for visiting stunning Puglia .We would highly recommend Casa Tavani and certainly hope to return again one day - and this time for longer . A very memorable time for us .Thankyou Tim & Angela
We arrived late at night and to look at Ostuni from a distance all lit on the hill was very exciting and quite magical. It certainly didn't disappoint. We stayed in the apartment 'La Terraza' which is so airy and well equipped and the balcony and roof terrace are a real luxury especially in the afternoon. Lunch on the balcony, lie in the sun, snooze and a read- perfect siesta time!!! We didn't hire a car and are so glad we didn't as it gave us the opportunity to really explore this wonderful place. The locals are really friendly and there are so many lovely places to eat and so reasonable. We will certainly return as it had to be the most relaxing holiday that we have ever had.
We had a wonderful stay in apartment L'Ombroso in Ostuni. Everything was just perfect. Angela and Tim are great hosts, they gave us all the necessary information to explore the city. We hope we will be able to come again in the near future. Thank you!
We could not have asked for a more beautiful apartment nor could we have asked for more hospitable hosts. Angela and Tim are absolutely wonderful and both a surplus of knowledge regarding the best restaurants, bars and beaches etc. They made our stay stress free with their recommendations and attentative care.
The building itself is rich with history and the roof terrace provides one of the best views available in the old city! It was heartbreaking to have to leave this gorgeous place nestled within the little streets in the heart of Ostuni, we would have happily resided there for months on end drinking prosecco and eating pasta!
We could not be more grateful to Angela and Tim and we cannot wait to come back!
My husband and I returned in August 2014 for wonderful stay at L'ombroso. We had stayed the previous year in La Terrazza and loved it so much. Tim and Angela, our hosts, looked after us so well and couldn't do enough for us.
If you want to experience the charm and ambience of a very old city with its narrow streets, exciting shopping finds, outdoor eating, cafe culture, restaurants nestled in the city walls, then Ostuni is the place for you and the apartments owned by Tim and Angela are a must. They provided everything we wanted, giving us tips on what to buy, how to order and routes to hidden beaches.
We will be returning in summer 2015 and any of Tim and Angela's apartments which are decorated to a very high standard with all amenities, will be our first choice (if available)!
We came to Italy to experience another style of living different from ours. Case Tavani ( La Terrazza and L'Ombroso) did not disappoint. Located minutes from the town square, each of the apartments combines incredible charm with up to date amenities. The units are in a century's old building that has been updated with a/c, wifi, etc. They are extremely well appointed and even contain libraries of books and movies.
Access is up a flight of stairs that are worn concave from centuries of use.
Our unit was on the upper level (41 steps), but well worth it for the views and light.
We found Pasquale at Fannelli's to be very helpful, as was Leonardo at the Monna Lisa.
The weather this October was beautiful and a real tonic from the summer weather here in Canada.
Angela and Tim (with Jane ) have created a wonderful combination of convenience, charm and practicality in this emerging destination in Puglia
