Have you always wanted to immerse yourself in the life of an Italian village? Then Albergo Diffuso is definitely the right choice. The individual accommodations are scattered over the picturesque old town of Locorotondo.
The idea for a "fragmented" hotel comes from Angelo Sista and his wife Teresa Salero, who were born here and are still fascinated by the smells, colors and tastes of this special village. They also wanted to bring the beauties of their homeland closer to tourists - but without building a new, perhaps unsuitable building in the village. Instead, they decided to use vacancies in the village as accommodation.
The result is four lavishly renovated and tastefully furnished apartments that combine the cosiness of your own home with the amenities of a hotel. A classic win-win situation: the local population benefits from the fact that the historic old town is preserved and can come into contact with the visitors, quite differently than would be the case with a closed hotel complex.
The breakfast, which can be brought on request, is enjoyed together with a fantastic view of the Valle d"Itria, a landscape that is characterized by olive groves and which, together with the red soil on which they grow, spread a very special fragrance and enchant with unique color contrasts.
Thanks to the excellent location in the heart of Locorotondo, guests of the Albergo Diffuso enjoy an authentic Italian atmosphere, can easily get into conversation with the neighbors and have a stunning view of the charming old town with its narrow streets and the "Le Cummerse", the roofs typical of Puglia. And the sea - or rather the seas - is very close: both the Adriatic Sea and the Ionian Sea are only a few minutes away by car.

ArchitectureThe cozy and comfortable apartments are all located in the heart of the old town of Locorotondo, surrounded by the beautiful landscape of the Valle d'Itria. During the renovation of the houses, care was taken to preserve their character, in particular the “Le Cummerse” round roofs typical of the region. Only regional materials, such as the local white stones, were used in the renovation, which give the rooms a rustic yet modern chic.
FoodEvery morning between 8:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m., you can enjoy a cooked-to-order breakfast made from local delicacies, which is included in the price.
EnvironmentThe staff was trained in the sustainable use of resources. Ecological cleaning agents are used to clean the buildings.
From the airport in Bari you can take the train to the center and change there to a train towards Martina Franca. The journey to Locorotondo takes about 2 hours. Alternatively, there is a shuttle service (120 euros) or you can take a rental car (85 km).
