Casafilù is located at the beginning of the Valle d’Itria, just a few minutes from the center of Ostuni; it is the ideal starting point to visit all of southern Puglia, at any time of the year.
The landscape that you can enjoy is typical of the southern Murgia, characterized by ancient dry stone walls, twisted olive trees, figs and almond trees that grow wild, tufts of capers with fragrant flowers and delicious prickly pears.
Silence and peace are the right rewards after long days spent discovering signs of history, culture, nature of which the surrounding area is rich.
In 3 minutes you could reach Ostuni, the White City. Take a walk through the narrow alleys of its historic center and get lost admiring terraces and portals: it is a unique and unforgettable experience!
Driving for a few minutes, you can reach Cisternino (one of the “most beautiful villages in Italy”), Locorotondo with its characteristic circular shape, the magic of the Martina Franca Baroque , the hundreds of trulli of Alberobello (Unesco heritage) and the hidden beauty of the Castellana Caves.
Lovers of good food and craftsmanship could be delighted by a trip to Ceglie Messapica, Villa Castelli and Grottaglie: typical products, history and traditions characterize this territory yet to be discovered.
The cities of Lecce, Taranto and Matera are easily reached driving only one hour.
By car or by train you can discover the seaside villages of the nearby Monopoli and Polignano, for a walk in the historic center, a fishing trip or a dip from the cliffs.
Nature manifests all its richness in the two parks that embellish the territory of Ostuni: the Regional Park of the Coastal Dunes and the Natural Reserve of Torre Guaceto, unique examples of natural and cultural peculiarities, to be discovered and protected.
There is also fun for adults and children: the Adventure Park Ciuchino Birichino is just 2 minutes from Casafilù and in 20 minutes you could reach the ZooSafari di Fasano and the Aqua Park of Egnazia.
And what about the sea? it needs no introduction: 12 km of coastline characterize Ostuni, ensuring the choice between different types of landings to the sea: from the low and sandy coast of the Coastal Dune Park, to the jagged and rocky coasts of Torre Pozzelle and Costa Merlata.
Free and equipped beaches, for families and for young people … the offer is not lacking! Moreover, if the wild wind from the north (tramontana) is too high, you can reach the “Maldivian” beaches of the Ionian Sea.
It is just a taste of what can be discovered, without forgetting the effect that the change of seasons produces on the landscape and on the activities that can be done and discovered: colors, flavors and aromas change making this land always different!
