Listening a proper song while reading about the white town in Itria Valley
Whether you reach the town by car, bus or by train, Ostuni appears as a white vision in a sea of green olive trees. The historical center of the little town comes up as an island of white houses standing on the hill and enclosed by white walls that embrace and protect them from priers.
Who Buys in Apulia
A decade ago, Northern Italians were the first to seek deals on vacation homes in Apulia, back when a trullo in need of work could be had for as little as 20,000 euros ($22,600), Mrs Sabrina FRANCO (Your Italian Real Estate Agent) said. But now more buyers are foreign, from Britain, the United States and Australia, as well as Germany, France, Sweden and other European countries, broker said.
“It was just a week ago that a very nice family from Stockolm came visiting this gorgeous town and after comparing it with an amazing Spanish town decided to proceed with the purchasing of a 7 cones Trulli property.”
Mrs. Sabrina FRANCO use to orginize things very well. She hosts people in her family owned Open B&B in Calabria so people can explore both Calabria and Apulia visiting also a little bit of Basilicata with the very ancient caved town of Matera.
Modern and recently opened, in the Roseto Capo Spulico Marina neighborood and just 150 meters from the sea, Open B&B is capable of interacting with people of different languages and cultures, always respecting the individual characteristics of individuals … their religion, their sexuality, their beliefs. Open B&B also shows itself in the choice of furnishings and bathroom fixtures, which in a new way “open” to the use of guests … ready and available, just like the Host, who guarantees the necessary assistance for the time of the entire stay. Open B&B: a passage and a stop for anyone who travels along the trajectories of a journey and for those who love to indulge in relaxation, culture and sport breaks… where the transparency of the water confirms the cleanliness of the UN 20 times awarded”blue flag” sea.
