Maybe I am late in answering your question but I've just joined Travells.
Ostuni is a beautiful place to visit with lots of small B&B, restaurants and artisan shops. Wine in Puglia is very good and you must try the orecchiette with broccoli.
The beaches nearby are so nice and pristine!
Worth visiting are the trullis at Alberobello and the Sassi in Matera an Unesco Heritage Town, a couple of hours driving from Ostuni.
Enjoy your trip.

Hi Renee. I was born in Bari, not so far from Ostuni. Once upon a time I was a tourist guide in my region, and Ostuni has always been considered a must-see. The town is nice, and it's surely worth visiting (just 10 - 15 km from the town you can find beautiful seasides). But in my opinion is not the best place in the area: you can find there such lovely towns as the very well known Alberobello, Locorotondo, Polignano a Mare (wonderful and lively). If you are in that area for a holiday, don't miss Salento area: one of the best choice for a summer trip in Italy.
