When Giorgio and Giulio Angella came to Ostuni, the White City, in search of a unique piece of land, they surely sensed the still breath of time. These trulli among the gnarled trees had fallen to ruin, yet the brothers knew immediately that here they would bring their dream to fruition.
The two Romans, one an architect and the other a real estate expert, wanted to create a nucleus for their families and friends. A place where they could come together with loved ones and wile away the minutes, hours, days; a place where time stands still. They also conceived it as a place of coming together for groups of friends or families; a place for celebrating shared cultural roots and for bolstering interpersonal relationships. The Angella brothers deeply understand the importance of doing so, and created the Ostuni Art Resort with this vision in mind.
After years of painstaking restoration, the resort blends into the landscape as if it had always been a part of it. Following the modern principles of bio-architecture, the brothers placed their trust in local craftsmen, favoring formal harmony and precious materials: there’s hardly a stone or architectural detail about which the brothers do not have a story.
Today, groups of up to 16 friends or family members can immerse themselves in ancient rhythm of the South, staying in five faithfully renovated trulli, some of which are connected to the modern yet restrained main house. Giorgio and Giulio have not only managed to bring back to life the original feel of the complex and provide the most modern of comforts, but have also found here an ideal “living space” for their impressive collection of contemporary art. The old and the new go hand in hand, enriching each other.
The Angella brothers have truly created a place of timeless beauty in the Ostuni Art Resort: here, archaic forms of landscape and architecture are imbued with sensory pleasures and togetherness.
More than a holiday. An unforgettable experience in Puglia. Privacy, conviviality, culture, exclusivity.
