Ottolire Resort tells the story of an intense relationship with the proper stone of Itria Valley; a stone that has created dry walls, flagstones, even homes like trulli and cummerse. Ottolire Resort is the story of a family with a strong inclination for the recovery and conservation of stone buildings, typical of Itria Valley. In 1973, Michele (nicknamed “ottolire”) and Vita, little more than eighteen, were literally fascinated by a group of ruined trulli and bought them. With unlimited sacrifices and a lot of work they brought them back to life, taking advantage of the experience of his grandfather and the great-grandfather, both involved in the construction of trulli. Their sons, Erasmo and Antonella, grew here. Forty-five years later, Erasmo and Antonella with Anastasia and Angelo, have brought once again this wonderful place back to life, giving a new sense to Ottolire Resort, also opening the doors of the casedde for a suggestive stay experience where to share the smells of spring, the sounds of summer, the colors of autumn and the silences of winter, in a way that only at Ottolire Resort it can happen. Ottolire Resort is located on a minor hill, in Locorotondo. In a wide and silent space, the Resort is surrounded by a flourishing forest with oaks and other Mediterranean plants. There is an immense harmony of shapes and material at Ottolire Resort, among geometries of ancient origin: trulli and dry stones that today draw a new place, a place where history still shows its traces and yet turns into modernity in order to welcome even the most careful guest.
At Ottolire beauty is at home. In the charm of the cummerse, between the sun that reflects a white place, the guest is reflected in the clear water of the Ottolire swimming pool in full relax and welcomed by the lush green of the grove that surrounds the Resort.
