Casa Tavani
Ranked #13 of 76 Speciality Lodging in Ostuni
Reviewed 29 September 2013

This is our 4th stay at this beautiful apartment and we have booked for next year too! Once you have climbed two flights of stairs the apartment is then all on one level with the most beautiful terrace and an amazing view of the old town of Ostuni as well as its lovely Cathedral.

The apartment consists of an open plan lounge and kitchen (with every facility you could want to prepare family meals); there is a family bathroom off the lounge as well as a separate bedroom with canopied double bed and bath as well as an ensuite toilet and basin in the bedroom. The open plan area is full of light with 3 pairs of french doors; there are 3 sofas for lazing on (or for sleeping if you need more than the double bedroom).

The whole place is air conditioned and it really is a pleasure to stay there. On the beautifully paved terrace there is a large table/chairs and a huge parasol as well as sun loungers. There is also a staircase up to the roof terrace above the lounge and bedroom for even more stunning views (and hanging out the washing if you have used the washing machine!). Ostuni is a lovely town and La Terrazza is an amazing apartment.

Finally our only connection with the owners is as returning and satisfied guests.

Just got back from a wonderful weeks break in this delightful, perfectly located apartment. Everything has been thought of by Tim and Angela. Including a very welcome welcome pack. Prosecco included. Highly accurate descriptions and directions of sights and restaurants were also supplied. Which immediately get you involved in Ostuni life.
The apartment even has a washing machine on the balcony to rid shirts and blouses of the unavoidable tomato based sauce stains. (Or is that just us!!)
The town is very special. We slipped into the Italian lifestyle of long lunches, afternoons on the roof terrace, then unusually for us old fogies, very late nights in the really cool bars. A bar called Passion is a must. There you will find Franco, the flamboyant owner, who will keep you highly entertained!
Every place that we ate in was fantastic and I've got a hunch that there isn't a bad restaurant there.
We did have one very special evening dining at a farm called Masseria Il Frantoio. Ten minutes in a cab. Everything you eat there is grown on the farm. They rarely serve anything twice and I guarantee you will have a very memorable evening.
We became Italian for a week and it's something we can't wait to do again.

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!

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!

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!

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.

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!
