Ostuni, the "White Town" of the Mediterranean
Ostuni is a town in the province of Brindisi, Puglia. It is among the main towns attracting tourists in Puglia.
The "Old Town" is Ostuni's citadel built on top of a hill and still fortified by the ancient walls. Ostuni is commonly referred to as "the White Town" (La Città Bianca in Italian) for its white walls and its typically white-painted architecture.
Italy's magic has been shifting over the last five years. While the Tuscan charm still attracts large volumes of tourists, slowly and steadily, the welcoming southern Italian hospitality is drawing more and more visitors to its region.
We are in the process of purchasing a 3 cone Trullo in Puglia, which needs extensive restoration. Total internal floor area is circa 60sqm. I have read alot about the process involves, re "geometra" and skilled builders.
