THE VILLA

THE EXPERIENCE
Ostuni, Puglia
Lamacoppa is situated near the baroque city of Ostuni in Puglia, one of the iconic white towns of the Valle D’Itria region that
is famous for whitewashed buildings and charming cobbled streets.

Ostuni is particularly famous for its cathedral – you can’t miss that intricate rose window – and the medieval Porta San Demetrio Gate. Make your way up the broad boulevard of Corso Vittorio Emanuele II for a beautiful view or stroll the city walls at sunrise/sunset to witness the white town turn rosy pink. From Ostuni it’s just a short jaunt to the sea.

Head north to Cisternino for a bite to eat. The stunning little town is as famous for its prime cuts of meat as it is for its architectural sights. Pull up a chair on the cobbles outside one of the many butchers, known as fornelli pronti (meaning “ready ovens”), and prepare for plates piled high with freshly grilled meat. Sample the local favourites, gnummareddi (delicious savoury parcels of offal) and bombetta (chunky morsels of crisp roast pork), and wash them down with a carafe of fruity local red. It’s not all about the food in Cisternino, though. There are plenty of viewpoints to enjoy as you wander throughout this città bianche, where you can spot Puglia’s signature conical trulli roofs.

The next white town on the map is Locorotondo, which takes its name from the circular nature of the town itself. The panoramic views are stunning. Before heading back down, sample some of the delicious local sparkling white wine, unusual in a region known primarily for its reds. A crisp flute of Spumante is certainly an ideal refreshment after your hill climb. If Cisternino’s sightings of the Puglian trulli whet your appetite, a visit to the white town of Alberobello is a must. Granted UNESCO World Heritage status, there are more than 1,400 of these historic dry-stone homes with their conical roofs lining the town’s charming narrow streets.
