Ottolire, tra geometrie di antica provenienza: trulli e pietre a secco che oggi disegnano un luogo nuovo in cui la storia è sempre presente ma si fa modernità per accogliere il visitatore più attento.
Ottolire, the history
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.
TO OUR LAND
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.
Fortyfive years later, Erasmo and Antonella with Anastasia and Angelo, have brought once again this wonderful place back to life.
Among Trulli stones
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.
