The Resort

An oasis of peace

In an evocative space, a few kilometers from Locorotondo , one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, stands the Tenuta del Lauro , a country residence of fine, white elegance, immersed in the greenery of ancient laurels and olive trees and open to the hospitality.

Located in the Itria valley , between Locorotondo and Alberobello, the Tenuta del Lauro is an oasis of peace immersed in nature and recovered with a patient restoration work of 11 trulli with 350 years of life.


Tenuta del Lauro is a unique experience for those who want to experience the Valle d'Itria intensely , discover new emotions and regain possession of their time .

Inhabited only until the beginning of the century, it was recently restored maintaining its original structure and the typical flavor of rural architecture, in which optical white dominates unchallenged.

The residence includes 11 cones (trulli) over 350 years old and a typical lamia dedicated to living, as well as a large stone swimming pool surrounded by centuries-old olive trees, laurels and fig trees.

Around the house mastic trees, holm oaks, strawberry tree bushes, rosemary and lavender offer an unexpected journey into the perception of colors and fragrances.

Paying attention to the harmony between the present and the past , the materials used in the restoration are the typical Apulian chianche and recycled stones.

The furnishings, made by local artisans with respect for tradition , have been enriched with fabrics and colorful objects of modern design ( Missoni Home ).

Our guests can stay in the places of work or simple daily life of the past, skilfully recovered, rest in the shade of the centuries-old olive trees or relax in the swimming pool surrounded by bushes of capers, blackberries and prickly pear plants.

Pamper yourself in an olfactory garden with the scent of Mediterranean essences - among thyme, rosemary, lemon balm, lemongrass, oregano, stevia, wild fennel, mint, sage, elderberry and incense plants - through a path capable of activating emotions and memories .

Let yourself go into the hands of expert therapists in the outdoor wellness area, ideal for eliminating any form of stress and regaining well-being and balance of body and mind. Characteristics of the estate are also the organic crops and the genuineness of traditional Apulian food: in addition to supplying fresh and organic products, the estate's vegetable garden and orchard propose the recovery of ancient fruit and vegetable varieties from the Itria Valley, trying not to lose those flavors and knowledge handed down for centuries.
