The History Of Palazzo Rodio - Holiday Apartment Ostuni - Palazzo Rodio

Palazzo Rodio is one of the most beautiful nineteenth-century buildings in Ostuni, “walled by a sumptuous and magnificent façade”. The interiors have high vaulted ceilings, the main hall has a vault frescoed by a refined and delicate celestial representation. The history of Palazzo Rodio begins in 1852 from the physicist and priest Dr. Francesco Greco.

Francesco Greco was one of the most brilliant physicists of the time, with the cult of the letters he transmitted on the façade on which they are engraved maxims of Socrates and Plato . Above the central frame is shown the engraving in Greek “Oiax ton Bios nomos Tau” (Rudder of life is the law of God).
The maxim of Socrates “Know thyself” in Greek (To gnoti seauton) and Latin (Nosce te ipsum) is engraved on the stone surmounting the fixtures of the facade.
The entrance to the palace is surmounted by a plaque engraved with the title “Villa haec parva sed apta qualibet a presbytero et phisicae doctore Francisco Greco condita simulaque dedicated fuit SS.Regina Coeli. TO. MDCCCLII “.
The balustrades of the terraces show the coats of arms of important families of Ostuni related to dr. Greek and later owners of the building. “

Excellent apprtmen

Excellent apartment- ideal base for exploring Ostuni and the beautiful coast line with the beaches
The host was there to meet us and guide us to the car parking area and show us round the apartment. There was a welcome pack of essentials and a lovely bottle of wine. We even had freshly made cakes brought to us on one day. A lovely touch. The Rodio family make your stay perfect.

I loved the amount of space in the apartments

The conservatory was a lovely place to dine when we didn’t go out and the rooftop terrace was perfect for cocktails. The garden was also a gem.

A wonderful stay

Ostuni and Palazzo Rodio exceeded all our expectations. The proximity of the Palazzo within a short stroll to the town centre, restaurants and outstanding local cafes was perfect for our large travelling party of 8. Our car was only needed to explore many of the beautiful local beaches. Secure parking made everything so easy. The Palazzo was an absolutely perfect venue for our group. It is well equipped, very clean and full of interesting art works plus multiple outdoor areas to eat or have an evening spritz. We were warmly welcomed by Grazia and the owners and Grazia was most helpful with easy and prompt communication. Thank you!  .. it was 10/10!

Palazzo Rodio is an excellent place to stop with a bigger group !!

The property was a beautiful traditional building with plenty of room for us all. We had a slight confusion with our rooms when we got there but our host soon arranged everything and everybody had excellent accommodation. With already knowing Ostuni, we were able to take our friends to some great restaurants and bars and had a great weekend in total.
Going home 🙂

A holiday fable!

I just got back from a fabulous holiday in the beautiful land of Puglia. To make the experience even more memorable was the stay in this beautiful villa. I confirm everything already thoroughly described in the previous review Mr. Paul. The apartment is perfectly maintained, as well as the terrace and the wonderful garden where I got to spend afternoons relaxing in the shade of plants immersed in an almost unreal.

Viviana

This is a very nice property, very good for a group trip in Ostuni.

This is a very nice property, very good for a group trip in Ostuni. You can easily explore the white city from the Palazzo. The building is a real gem, the rooms are big and the garden is very inviting. The owners and the manager are very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend the apartments of the Palazzo Rodio.

Amazingly beautiful place

Amazingly beautiful place. Lovely welcome from Grazia and Paulo. We loved it, it was way more than we expected.

Beautiful historic building with loads of space and creature comforts. Lots of outdoor space too.
We loved everything- couldn’t fault it. 4 adults and 5 children – lots is space, comfy beds, nespresso machines, balconies, walking distance from everything.

Magnifique maison de maître!

Magnifique maison de maître, idéalement située, parfaite pour vacances en famille dans les Pouilles. Posto bellissimo con una location perfetta. Stanze molto spaziose nell’ appartamento Melody, anche con 2 bambini. Il Plus della casa sono il giardino e parcheggio privati.

Op de site staat een ruim appartement

Op de site staat een ruim appartement…..maar het is echt groot. Prachtig ingerichte ruimtes met een supergroot terras. Alles fris en crispy schoon. En parkeren op de binnenruimte, ook handig in een drukke stad. We hebben genoten hier. Ostuni is levendig en gezellig, overdag en avonden. Prima uitvalsbasis voor de omgeving en de stranden.

Tanja

LOCATION was the main key here

We liked the location of this property and the private parking provided. The room was very spacious too and we had a fridge which is always handy. We were given lovely cakes on arrival and the staff were very helpful. LOCATION was the main key here.

Découverte d’Ostuni et environs (plages magnifiques) depuis un bâtiment de grande classe.

Découverte d’Ostuni et environs (plages magnifiques) depuis un bâtiment de grande classe. Très beau logement. Beaucoup de style, et très belle demeure locale. Vaste. La chambre d’appoint (que nous n’avons pas utilisée) était pluspetite, et surtout assez chaude (sous le toit). Cuisine gigantesque, très bien approvisionnée. Grande terrasse. Attention à ne pas se conger 🙂 Localisation idéale, proche du centre d’OSTUNI sans être compliquée d’accès. Le parking est hyper commode. Accueil très sympathique et prévenant.

We have just returned from our holiday in Ostuni, where we spent a really nice time in Palazzo Rodio. The apartment is very beautiful, very comfortable and well appointed. The rooms are furnished with attention to detail and have a great, vaulted ceilings. The whole house and the garden are very clean and well maintained and architecturally impressive. The apartment is conveniently located near the old town. The historic center can never reach it in just a few minutes walking distance.

Ewa P

A very spacious apartment within a splendid villa

A great base for exploring Puglia. We received a warm welcome on arrival. The wine left for us to enjoy was very good The location is good for walking into Ostuni old town. The private, secure area for parking was extremely useful.

John

Fantastic Little Place!

Fantastic little place in the heart of the city. Very spacious and friendly hosts. Room was huge and really quiet at night. Would recommend!
Perhaps more info in English about the property. I understand basic Italian which helped but guests should be absolutely clear on access and safety procedures. It would be great for them to develop these for future guests.

À recommander
