Fabulous property in the heart of Ostuni. A 5 min walk from the main square but located in a quiet neighbourhood. Easy parking nearby which we found really useful. The house was gorgeous, exactly as described in the listing. It was lovely to sit on the roof terrace on an evening with a glass of wine enjoying the view. (Nicole, September 2017)
