Casolare Ostuni is a rustic, original southern Italian “casolare”, brimming with authentic, local charm, finished with ancient stone. Built in 1877, this sumptuous home was sympathetically renovated in 2017, giving it a sleek, contemporary finish within original buildings, nestled in four acres of olive trees. This prestigious home retains all its unique features and stunning architecture with the most modern of comforts.

Designed for a truly restorative stay, guests can enjoy the ultimate secluded and tranquil setting, with all the services of a five-star resort. An array of staff remains at guests’ disposal close by, offering a full range of services from massages to cooking classes, grocery deliveries, transfers and private chef or catering services. Guests can enjoy a little slice of decadent luxury within an impeccably chic and tasteful private home.

The elegance of this home will immediately strike visitors, finished with the white stone which is characteristic of the region, it offers an abundance of original features such as stone fireplace and locally handcrafted ceramic tiles.

The outdoor spaces are sublime at the Casolare; the pool is set within a chic terrace which offers a beautifully covered pergola, with billowing curtains and ample space for a relaxed group meal as the sun softens over the landscape. Imagine sitting back after a busy day, with a good holiday book, or a cold glass of beer. This is a tranquil, romantic spot when illuminated at night, awash with a sense of the ancient surroundings and timelessness of the location.

There is an outdoor kitchen which is fully equipped with barbecue, sink and stove; outdoor living is a seamless and tasteful affair at the Casolare, and for an added note of luxury guests can arrange a catered meal while they sit back and relax.

Guests will honestly feel as if they had escapes the strains of modern living and entered an impeccably executed haven of taste, tranquilly and southern Italian refined flavour!

While the interiors are so striking in their simplicity, quality is not compromised on, and all the necessary extras are present, including air conditioning, wifi, smart television with Netflix and underfloor heating. Beautiful solid timber furnishings and a delightfully unadorned neutral palette create such a calm aura. This home epitomises laid-back yet stylish living.

Abundant with character, the arched ceilings, beautiful kitchen tiles and infiltration of natural daylight create an airy and relaxed atmosphere; the raw materials and quality of finishes genuinely speak for themselves.

Eight guests can be accommodated across three bedrooms, including a bunk bedroom, and the additional option of a sofa bed in the living room. The bedrooms are immaculately designed, with a fresh and neutral backdrop offset by accents of turquoise and dove greys.

The old mixes with the new so effectively at Casolare Ostuni: sleek walk-in shower and top range kitchen appliances live alongside beautiful local tiles and ancient stone. For a luxurious break within the ultimate private setting, Casolare Ostuni offers guests a rural idyll finished with perfect grace and charm in the heart of the Salento area, which is known as being an unspoilt slice of Italy.

Casolare Ostuni is nestled six kilometres from Ostuni centre, and about a twenty-minute drive from the beautiful beaches of the Adriatic coast.

Brindisi airport is about thirty-five minutes drive.

Nature lovers will enjoy taking guided hikes through the surrounding hills, olive groves and woodland,  or - with the sea so close by - sailing and diving is always an option.

Casolare Ostuni is in the “heel” of Italy, in the very heart of Apulia with its beautiful soft light and far reaching horizons.

The region is known for its olive oil production, as evidenced by the surrounding stretches of olive groves as well as its distinctive white-washed hill towns, centuries-old farmland and hundreds of kilometres of Mediterranean coastline.

The capital Bari is a vibrant port and university town, whilst Lecce is the ‘Florence of the south’ - known for its baroque architecture and “Trulli” - stone huts with cone-shaped roofs that were originally homes; today they can be visited in their preserved form, and provide something of a fairy tale-esque experience for younger members of the group!

Ostuni has a bustling and vibrant centre, perched on a hill; it is characterised by white, flat-topped houses across a labyrinth of tiny streets and alleys. Steeped in history, Ostuni cathedral combines Gothic, Romanesque and Byzantine elements. Ostuni is known locally as “the white city,” it overlooks the Valle d’Itria which is known as one of Puglia’s most beautiful areas.

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Babies & Toddlers Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

Casolare Ostuni is suitable for families with children of all ages. The beautiful gardens provide a safe and intriguing space for children to roam and explore, while the pool will provide hours of splashy fun. The sheer novelty of the outdoor kitchen and al fresco dining will delight children.

Older children and teens can relax in the knowledge that this home has wifi indoors and outdoors, as well as smart television with Netflix for when “downtime” is in order.

A cot is available for guests, and one of the bedrooms has bunk beds which are ideal for children. Parents can rest easy knowing that there is access to villa staff off-site, close by, offering an array of useful additional services indulging a pre-arrival grocery delivery, for all the essentials that babies and toddlers may need.

Access to a private chef will add a little extra note of comfort; parents can ensure that children’s meals are provided without the hassle of preparation or clearing up.

Puglia, the “heel” of Italy, is a family-friendly destination; whether it be hilltop or coastal towns, long sandy beaches with clear waters and the beautiful coastline, as well as the sumptuous rustic local cuisine, children will be welcome!

Southern Italians are very family-minded, and highchairs and children’s cutlery will be provided in most restaurants, while the piazzas in the evening are full of youngsters roaming and playing together while their parents watch on from courtyard al fresco restaurants.

For days out, just a short trip from Bari, families can take advantage of the zoo safari, Fasanolandia. Children will be thrilled to be so close to big cats roaming free, with giraffes bending down to peer into the car windows and monkeys jumping on the bonnet.

For scuba diving and snorkelling, there are multiple water sports centres, including Scuba Diving di Levanto Stefano and Orca Diving. Underwater exploration is so accessible in the calm, warm seas of southern Italy.

Alberello is an enchanting day trip for children to discover the local culture, namely the curious cone-shaped houses named Trulli, particular to the region. Children will be fascinated by these fairytale-like homes, like something out of Snow White, and the myriad of souvenir shops will also prove fruitful.

Reviews

  • Everything was great

    Posted by Tobias on 04/01/2020

    Everything was great, the place is perfect to explore Puglia, the house is perfectly equipped and beautiful. Being there after Christmas we enjoyed the heating since it was quite chilly. In Summertime, I imagine that the pool, the barbecue and the terraces will be great to pass the evenings. The host is very much involved to make sure everything is alright. Local organisation with Grazia and Vincenzo is perfect.

  • Amazing

    Created on 31/12/2019

    This villa was amazing. We stayed in the first week of June 2019. Mario, the owner, did an amazing job updating this farmhouse into a piece of heaven. All the details inside and out are like looking at an art museum. I stayed with my wife, toddler, and my parents. Plenty of room both inside and outside. The new outdoor living space was great and we ate dinner out there every night. There are so many ways to cook, between the induction stove, or charcoal grill. My parents enjoyed strolling through the olive grove each day. The pool was perfect for cooling off in during the heat of the day. I thought we might need the pool to be heated, but it gets plenty of sun and was not needed. Super convenient location to Ostuni, the market, and many other central Puglia attractions such as Alberobello and the beach clubs. Mario was extremely responsive before during and after the visit, and in my opinion, went way above and beyond ensuring we had a great visit. He had spot on recommendations for cooking classes and beaches which we enjoyed very much. Grazia, the property manager was waiting for us at the villa and gave us a tour and showed us how to use everything. She even arranged an incredible dinner at the house on the night we arrived, with a local chef and waiter. We cannot wait to go back, and I highly recommend staying here if you are planning a trip to Puglia.

  • Would definitely want to come back

    Posted by Cristina on 13/12/2019

    Beautiful property in a nice location, well equipped. The owner and the staff were very friendly and helped Would definitely want to come back.

  • We loooved this villa

    Posted by Denisa on 12/10/2019

    We loooved this villa and didn't want to leave. It is hard to believe but the pictures don't actually do this place justice. Major points that need mentioning: Mario is a great host, his communication was superb and very welcoming, the villa has great location for exploring Val d'Itria - everything from Ostuni to Matera, the pool is heated which is a big plus when coming off season, so many seating areas to choose from to lounge in during the day and night, great supermarket 5 min drive away - with italian groceries being so good, you don't even need to go to a restaurant to eat and drink well.

  • Super great

    Posted by Ria on 20/09/2019

    Mario is a great host. We were welcomed by the lovely and very friendly Grazia. Both Mario and Grazia responded fast to our messages. Their service level is very high. The house is super great! Nice surroundings, nice and quality finishings. We enjoyed eating outside in the morning and evening sun. Large garden with beautiful olive trees. The location is perfect, Ostuni is very close-by and so is the supermarket. We had a great and relaxing time.

  • Loved every minute of it

    Posted by Brooke on 14/09/2019

    Our stay at Casolare Ostuni couldn’t have been better. We loved every minute of it. The property is beautiful, the house spotlessly clean and elegant. We really couldn’t have asked for better. Mario was a huge help - offered fabulous suggestions for restaurants, best beaches, local sites and activities. Travelling with teenagers can be a little trying, but not this time. The whole family had a ball. Highly recommended and we will be back.

  • Perfect accommodation

    Posted by Viktoria on 12/09/2019

    It was perfect accommodation for two families with kids ranging from 4 to 17 year olds. The villa is very beautiful, comfortable and provides for a true authentic experience of Puglia region. Hosts were very accommodating and lovely. We will definitely come back!

  • Fantastic

    Posted by Roy on 27/07/2019

    This villa was fantastic. It was well-equipped. There were 3 outdoor seating areas to enjoy including the great pool area. The air-conditioning worked well as did the internet. Check-in and check-out were seamless. If you had questions during your stay, they were very quick to respond. A mid week cleaning was included. Mario could not have been more helpful in suggesting restaurants, sight seeing, or any request we had.

  • More beautiful than in the photos

    Posted by Natasha on 27/07/2019

    We had the most fabulous stay at Marios’s house in Puglia. The location was excellent for visiting the area, Marios’s recommendations of day trips and restaurants were superb and we even had a chef come cook for us one night which was incredible. The house has multiple outdoor areas which were perfect for different times of the day and great if you have a bigger group. The house itself is even more beautiful than in the photos, perfectly clean and super stylish. We cannot wait to come back and cannot recommend this house more highly! Thanks to Mario and Grazia for making our holiday so special.

  • Superb villa!

    Posted by Claire on 20/07/2019

    The property was stunning! It captures the style and characteristics of the area whilst not compromising on modern facilities. We simply loved it and could not recommend more highly.

  • Feel welcome from the moment you walk in

    Posted by Andrew on 15/06/2019

    This is a wonderful, stylish, and well-cared for villa that makes you feel welcome from the moment you walk in. Mario is a generous and considerate host and has provided plenty of information about the local area as well as about Puglia in general. The property is beautiful and rich of wonderful details. The beds and the pillows are very comfortable; the AC units in all rooms are definitely a plus, and the house is really clean; we loved the little sample toiletries that were provided along with the freshly laundered towels. The location is very convenient for exploring most of Puglia's major sights.

  • The perfect getaway

    Posted by Dionne on 15/06/2019

    A gorgeous villa, the perfect getaway. Modern and clean with a magnificent pool and fabulous outdoor spaces. Centrally located to explore the region. Mario is a fantastic host , great recommendations and prompt responses. Exceptional value for money, you would be unable to get a hotel room in nice hotel for the price of this entire villa. Highly recommended!

  • Simply outstanding

    Posted by Alberto on 31/05/2019

    This is the second time I stay at this property, and I am sure I will come again. Thanks to the additional wing - recently built - and other improvements, the house is now even bigger and more comfortable. The veranda is huge and offers plenty of shade. The pool heater is definitely a huge plus, especially when the weather is not that warm. Everything is always perfectly maintained and clean. Simply outstanding.

  • Unforgettable!

    Posted by Vitaly on 27/04/2019

    Wow, what a magical place! Beautifully restored and rich of elegant details. The house is clean, perfectly maintained both inside and outside, and only few minutes from the centre of Ostuni. The location is perfect to visit Valle d’Itria, and all the other beautiful villages in the area. The kitchen is very well equipped, and the house offers plenty of space. The veranda is huge and we spent hours, at night, in front of the outdoor fireplace. The outdoor facilities are spectacular and very functional. The pool heater allowed us to take advantage of the sunny days and enjoy a swim even in April. The Wi-Fi connection, which covers the entire olive grove, works great. Mario has been a lovely host and from the moment we made the reservation the communication has been very smooth; he gave us many hints about local places to visits, and also helped us organising a dinner with a chef at the property. Thank you for making our stay unforgettable!

  • Hospitality is exceptionally good

    Posted by Ulrike on 25/04/2019

    The house is really beautiful and definitely recommendable. The hospitality is exceptionally good.
