Casa Bianca is a cozy yet spacious studio located in Ostuni's 18th century zone steps from the main piazza. Here you really live like a local and among the locals in a typical 18th C home.
Located on the ground floor, it's a great option for guests with limited mobility. There's a very comfy queen size bed and a sofa bed so it can accommodate up to 3 adults. A fully-equipped kitchen corner available for when you want to channel your inner Top Chef.
WIFI is available. It's unlimited and free.

The space

The studio is recently renovated with taste, adding modern comforts while maintaining the original 18th century details like the thick stone walls that keep the place cool in the heat of summer (although there's also an air conditioner to help with that) and painted mostly in white as the they were centuries ago.
Next to the original toilet (separate spaces), there is a newly created modern shower area with rain shower head because I understand that you don't really want to shower above the toilet (huh? ask me about this), and a kitchen corner for preparing a quick breakfast or a whole meal!
It's a perfect place for a couple or two friends travelling together and want to be near Ostuni's main attractions and lively night life.
It is possible to add a single bed or a baby crib for a small supplement.
Unlimited WIFI internet is available for free.

Interaction with guests

I live in the countryside 5 minutes from the property , but just give me a short phone call or SMS if you need anything . If you need advice or suggestions , please feel free to ask! It's a pleasure to share my love and knowledge of Ostuni and Puglia.
I can also often be found hanging out at Monna Lisa café, the best craft-cocktail bar in town. If you see me there, just say hi.

Other things to note

The two hosts speak fluent English, Italian and French and some basic Spanish. Deutch in den Prozess.
Free parking is available. We'll show you the spots.
It is not recommended to park in front of the house since it's a very narrow street and you can only go one way.
We welcome everybody. Gay friendly and gay owned.

The apartment is exactly as described. The location is perfect and Giuseppe was an excellent host. He took special care, was willing to help with any recommendations, really accommodating and even provided a really helpful parking space to make the stay easier! Giuseppe introduced us to his friends Leonardo and Valentina from the Mona Lisa Cafe, who make wonderful cocktails and food, and are just around the corner from the apartment. If I went to Ostuni again, I would absolutely stay here and recommend to friends and family.

Giuseppe and Daniel are wonderful hosts! The studio apartment is beautiful (just as shown in the pictures). It is very comfortable and in an ideal location - close to the piazza, restaurants and shopping. They went over and above to provide us with helpful information and recommendations, and to ensure that our stay was perfect. They regularly communicated with us and were very reliable. Would highly recommend to other travellers. We hope to return again!

We had a great stay at Giuseppe's. Everything was very clean and cosy. He also gave a wine as a present, which we really enjoyed. He was very friendly and helpful, told us about all the places that we should visit and even recommended a place where we could get a late night snack. We came in quite late but he was still very welcoming and helped us find a free parking spot. All in all Giuseppe is a great host, and we definitely enjoyed our stay to the fullest!

Giuseppe was the perfect host. Upon arrival he met me in my car and showed me a spot to park close to the apartment. The apartment is perfectly located in the heart of Ostuni. Very private and comfortable space. Giuseppe checked in frequently to make sure everything was ok and made me feel very welcome! He advised me on some great restaurants and taught me some of the history of this historical city. I highly recommend staying here. If I return to the White city I would not hesitate to stay here again! Grazie Giuseppe!

This place is absolutely precious! It's steps away from the city center on a very cute and quiet street. Giuseppe is super kind and very helpful. We took nearly all of his dining suggestions and absolutely loved the Monna Lisa cafe- which is seriously 1 minute from this place. Ostuni itself is wonderful and this apartment along with Giuseppe's recommendations is a great way to get to know the town.

Professionally an engineer, I lived in Canada since I was 15 years old, and recently moved back to Italy in Puglia with my partner with the intention to have an hospitality business, given that we have a passion for travel, good food and wine and making new friends. We fell in love with this beautiful region, and we'd like to share it with people who can appreciate it like we do.


Ho vissuto in Canada da quando avevo 15 anni, mi sono trasferito in Puglia con il mio partner 2 anni fa con l'intenzione tra l'altro di aprire una struttura ricettiva, dato che abbiamo una passione per i viaggi, buon cibi e vini e fare nuove conoscenze. Ci siamo innamorati di questa bellissima regione e ci piacerebbe condividerla con le persone che possono apprezzarla come facciamo noi
Professionalmente sono un ingegnere, laureato in Canada.

On est tombés amoureux avec cette belle région, et on aimerait partager avec ceux qui savent l'apprécier comme nous le faisons.
