The two architects, Teresa and Bernd, immediately fell in love with the centuries-old whitewashed vaults of Casa Garibaldi and revived them with a lot of heart and soul to enable guests to have an unforgettable and authentic holiday in Puglia.
The two extremely stylish holiday apartments have been carefully renovated, renewed and supplemented. Tasteful, mid-century Italian furniture sets the tone here. Beautiful floor tiles, indirect light in the vaulted rooms and soft colors complete the interior. The accommodation aims to retain its timelessness, offer modern comforts and at the same time give guests an insight into the local building traditions. From the respective terraces you have a great view over the roofs of the city to the Valle d'Itria.
Locorotondo is picturesquely situated on a hill about twelve kilometers from the sea. Small, narrow streets, whitewashed walls, pink bougainvilleas and the steep roofs of the houses called "Cummerse" form a pretty cityscape that the residents take care of with great pride. Locorotondo has been awarded as one of the most beautiful places in Italy (Borghi più belli d'Italia). Markets invite you to shop for local, typical products such as olives, orecchiette pasta or bread patties (polpette die pane) with parsley or other aromatic herbs. There is also good wine from the region - oh, Bella Italia.
ArchitectureAll the work was carried out by small local craftsmen using natural and traditional building materials (pure lime plaster, lime paint, ornamental tiles, solid wood).
EnvironmentAir conditioning was deliberately omitted, as the thick, old walls ensure a natural day/night temperature balance. There is of course waste separation and only environmentally friendly cleaning agents are used.
