A holiday for total wellness
Leonardo Trulli Resort interprets a concept of vacation dedicated to total wellness, enjoying the wide spaces immersed in the typical nature of the Valle d’Itria among olive trees, vineyards, vegetable gardens and aromatic plants. The warmth of the sun and the wonderful hilly climate mitigated by the action of the sea, which is only 15 km away, favors the growth of the vegetables that we cultivate in our own gardens, courgettes, aubergines, tomatoes and aromatic plants such as mint, thyme and others.
Vegetables and aromas are collected daily and used fresh in Leonardo Arte e Cibo, the Resort’s restaurant where we interpret the tradition of our land that is best expressed through its typical dishes. Healthy and tasty cuisine is one of the strengths of our Resort that we like to call eco-chic because here you can breathe an air of simple elegance and refinement that respects the same nature in which the Resort is immersed. Our staff, our services, our style reflects the vocation to respect the environment, our positivity means love for nature and the benevolent welcome of our guests of which we like to take care of ourselves by offering our total availability to make their stay an experience unforgettable.
For those who have never slept in a trullo already this in itself would be enough to make the holiday at the Leonardo Trulli Resort unique: the collected environment, the cone vault, the exposed stones convey the magic of these unique and unique buildings in the world . Children, couples looking for intimacy and a romantic place remain fascinated, but also groups of friends and families attracted by an original holiday. The interspace between the stones of the trullo makes it possible to maintain a natural coolness during the summer months and to conserve heat in winter: this is also a small sign, a detail of harmony with the surrounding environment. Just outside the trullo, in the gardens, you can breathe the fragrances of aromatic plants and enjoy a total quiet immersed in the most authentic countryside of Valle d’Itria in absolute privacy where it is possible to take a shower outdoors or remain undisturbed. shadow of an olive tree listening to the sound of leaves blowing in the wind.
The Resort is located a few kilometers from Locorotondo, that round village (Locus rutundi) where there is an atmosphere of other times, in which the sense of community still exists, of respect for the common spaces that are always embellished with flowers , whitened and cleaned so that walking along the alleys you can breathe the scent of whiteness and the polished stone of bleach. This village is a small treasure chest of art where you can admire both the architecture of the typical stone houses dominated by the cummerse and the small churches scattered in the historic center of which that of San Nicola is undoubtedly the most representative jewel. Entering the Itria valley, towards Martina Franca, you can breathe the most authentic countryside those of the vineyards, the millstones and the wine and dairy production. The air full of the scent of cut grass invites you to fully enjoy the surrounding nature with a simple walk in the sheep tracks and in the narrow streets that penetrate in the succession of the districts where step by step you can discover fascinating colors and landscapes. There are many paths that we could recommend both on foot and by bicycle: the nearby Marziolla district, one of the oldest in the district, or along the Via dell’Acquedotto towards the Pirro canal overlooking the esplanade that descends towards Fasano and towards the sea. And there are many activities you can do in an area of just a few kilometers. For those who love prehistory and history, we recommend the museum of Ostuni where the famous woman of the Paleolithic era who lived about 30,000 years is preserved. In the underground there is a marvelous karst world of incredible spectacle made of stalactites and stalagmites: these are the famous Castellana Caves and the Montevicoli caves of Ceglie. Martina Franca with her Palazzo Ducale tells us of the Spanish domination of the seventeenth-century nobility and civilization and of a rococo baroque style that embellishes the facades of the noble palaces.
Beach lovers can find long sandy beaches further south than Torre Canne. There are beaches for all tastes, both free and equipped beaches and rocky coves, further north towards and beyond Savelletri, where even on the most crowded summer days it is always possible to find a quiet corner from which to dive. It is possible to organize horse riding, in the woods or on the beach. at sunset, kite surfing, scuba diving and trekking courses. There are countless activities and we at Leonardo trulli are happy to recommend them to our guests and to be able to organize them when requested. Making our guests feel good and our mission, and we do our best to take care of them by offering personalized services with the desire to convey that touch of kindness and love for our land and for the nature that distinguishes us and that is perceived by staying in our Resort. The structure was reorganized with respect to the natural spaces and those cultivations that Leonardo himself had started almost a century ago, the restoration of the trulli were carried out with a wise conservative restoration that respected the original structure, bringing the exposed stone back to view. Even the small villa was left in the liberty style as Leonardo had wanted to build it in the early 1900s. We built the pool in a natural valley where there was a large open-air cistern that helped to collect rainwater. Our pool is never rowdy, guests perceive the spirit of the structure and are always very respectful of the quiet and incredibly, even the same children never hear unwanted shouting.
This is our Resort, a place where you can relax and rediscover the pleasure of getting back in touch with nature in a refined and elegant environment: eco-chic precisely, having to be able to appreciate and understand the personality of the Valle d’Itria, our past and our hospitable style. We hope to be able to tell and interpret it in the best possible way, with naturalness and kindness also through the details and the small attentions that we dedicate to our guests with whom we often establish that bit of friendship that keeps us tied also from one end of the world to the other.
