Set within the grounds of an ancient Masseria, Casina Palumbo is in the Ostuni countryside just a short drive from the hilltop town and 20 minutes from the coast. It’s ideal for families with younger children as there’s plenty of space to roam safely outside and the large swimming pool is at a safe distance.
The traditional stone house is centred around a main room with vaulted ceiling containing the dining and lounge spaces, with the kitchen, bathroom and two bedrooms located around it. There’s a double bedroom and a twin room with a cot available for infants. On the garden level below there’s an independent large room that sleeps two with a bathroom containing a loo, bidet and basin – ideal for older teens or groups of friends holidaying together.
Outside a large terrace with al fresco dining table, bbq, sun loungers and armchairs provide comfortable outdoor living. The huge swimming pool is situated beside the Masseria and has plenty of sun loungers and space for everyone to enjoy the water. Please note that the swimming pool is open for the month of August only.

Casina Palumbo is situated on a large gated estate in the Ostuni countryside, just minutes from the hilltop town and an easy drive to the coast with miles of beaches to choose from. Ostuni is known as ‘la città bianca’ – the white city – named for the dazzling view of its old town clinging to the hillside overlooking the salento plains towards the sea.
What we love
We love Casina Palumbo’s tucked away location in the grounds of a historic Masseria that has belonged to the same family for generations. The accommodation is comfortable and while the sitting and dining nooks are a little tight, the spacious terrace more than makes up for it. It’s perfect for families and the extra room and wc downstairs is a useful extension but we’d prefer it if it was connected to the main house. It’s a shame that the pool isn’t open outside of August but this is reflected in the price, and with miles of beaches to choose from it really doesn’t matter.
In July and August the minimum stay is 7 nights, outside of these months the minimum stay is 3 nights.
