This is the magical frame of San Lorenzo Boutique Hotel, a temple of silence, nature and wellness, a place to start from every days to discover the surrounding area between country and ancient villages.

Only a few kilometers away, the center of Polignano a Mare, one of the most suggestive place of Italy.
Among the most popular itineraries also the visit of Monopoli, or Castellana Grotte with his famous Caves and Alberobello with his Trulli.

Polignano a Mare is a dive “nel blu dipinto di blu”, like Domenico Modugno, who was born here, sang.

A crystal clear sea and the rock, with impressive cavities carved by the sea are the distinctive signs of Polignano a Mare, know as “the Adriatic Pearl”, just 30 kilometers away from Bari.

Birthplace of the singer Domenico Modugno, who became famous with his "Nel blu dipinto di blu", Polignano fascinates with its historic center rich in Arab, Byzantine, Spanish and Norman traces, such as the remains of the four defense towers that surrounded the ancient part of the town.

Polignano a Mare fascinate with his historic centre full of Arab, Byzantine, Spanish and Norman traces, and his jagged coast from Grotta Palazzese to Lama Monachile. One of the most beautiful Apulian litoral.

A dream sea and a historic center full of art and history make Monopoli one of the most beautiful towns on the Adriatic. The profile of the castle and the ancient walls announces the beautiful Monopoli. Just 40 kilometers away from Bari.

The symbolic monument of the city is Carlo V Castle, on the promontory of Punta Penna, now home of exhibitions events and conferences. The fortified “Masseria’s”, well preserved or carefully restored, are located in the low hills and in the flat hinterland. In the countryside we can found Lama degli Ulivi, a Botanical Garden with caves, rock churches and over 2000 Mediterranean plant species.

In the heart of the Murgia dei Trulli, 50 kilometers away from Bari, a graceful expanse of pinnacles announces Alberobello, with its characteristic historic center a World Heritage Site.

Orange Flag for the Italian Touring Club, the heart of the town is entirely made up of Trulli, the original dry stone houses, whitewashed with quicklime and with a cone-shaped roof made of exposed stones. Crosses, pierced hearts and zodiac symbols decorate the roof of each Trullo, which keeps its mystery intact.

It is a maze of winding alleys, with more than 1000 Trulli, Rione Monti, the oldest in the city, together with the Aia Piccola district, where Casa Pezzolla stands out, a complex of 15 communicating Trulli now used as a Museum of the Territory, and the Trullo Sovrano, which hosts shows and concerts.

The most beautiful karst cave in the world is the hidden treasure of Castellana Grotte, a town in the hinterland of province of Bari, just over 10 kilometers away from the Trulli of Alberobello and the coast of Polignano a Mare. The town owes its name and above all its tourist vocation, to its internationally renowned speleological complex, a short walk from the town centre.

Largo Leone Magno is the heart of the old city, with a medieval soul and narrow streets still paved with local limestone paving. The oldest church, dedicated to Pope San Leone, is a jewel of Romanesque architecture with sculptural furnishings made from the sixteenth to the eighteenth century. Among the alleys of the historic center, the Church of Santa Maria del Suffragio is kept, decorated with a wooden portal, with skulls and crossbones.

Consisting of numerous finds from the ancient city of Gnathia, near Fasano, the Archaeological Park of Egnazia is located a few kilometers away from the sea and at the ancient axis linking Bari and Brindisi.

The history of the excavations starts at the beginning of the nineteenth century with the depredations of the French officers, to continue in the period of the historic famine of 1846, when the inhabitants raked up vases, precious objects and kits desecrating the ancient tombs to resell them. We will have to wait until 1912 for systematic excavations, which resumed in stages in the 1940s, 1960s and 1980s to continue today.

Trulli surrounded by vineyards and olive groves as far as the eye can see. This is the most authentic face of Valle d’Itria.
The landscape fills the eye with timeless magic, in the heart of fascinating villages such as Alberobello, Locorotondo, Martina Franca and Cisternino.

Ostuni appears like a mirage. Splendid on the hill in the plateau covered with olive trees, where the greenery dives into the blue of the Ardriatic Sea. A walk through the alleys is enough to admire the beautiful courtyards and squares framed by white houses, artisan shops and restaurants where delicious roast meats and tasty seasonal vegetables are cooked.

Here you live peacefully, immersed in the scents and flavors of the past. In the plain of Fasano, stop and rest in a historic farmhouse transformed into a wellness resort. The ancient houses have a story to tell, hidden in the aromatic herb gardens, and the terraces offer breathtaking views.
