Ottolire, the staff

Ottolire is a big family dedicated to hospitality and attention to detail…



Ottolire is located in the heart of the green hills of Itria Valley in Puglia, a region of South Italy warmed by the sun and bathed by crystal clear sea, in a fairy-tale landscape made up of immense expanses of ancient olive groves and small plots of land cultivated with vineyards, delimited by the characteristic dry stone walls, recently declared Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.

From its very central position it is possible to reach, in a few minutes, charming towns and places of considerable interest such as:
  • Locorotondo and Cisternino, both recognized as "The most beautiful Hamlets in Italy‖
  • Alberobello, capital of Trulli and UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1996
  • Martina Franca, second baroque city in Puglia, after Lecce, which is only an hour away
  • Ostuni, the so-called "white city", blue flag of the Italian Touring Club
  • The Castellana Caves, the longest in Europe
  • Matera, European Capital of Culture 2019
  • The Regional Natural Park of the Coastal Dunes
  • The beautiful coastal cities of Monopoli and Polignano a Mare
  • The golden beaches and the crystal clear Ionian and Adriatic seas


Ottolire, la storia

In 1973, Michele nicknamed Ottolire and Vita, freshly married and just over eighteen, were fascinated by a group of ruined trulli and bought them. Through much work and sacrifice, they brought them back to life, putting into practice the teachings of their grandfather and great- grandfather, both involved in the construction of trulli and dry stone walls. Their children, Erasmo and Antonella, grew up there.
Forty-five years later, Erasmo and Antonella, along with Anastasia and Angelo, have once again brought this magical place back to life, turning it into an evocative resort, to share the smells of spring, the sounds of summer, the colours of autumn and the silence of winter, in a way that only at Ottolire can happen.
