As soon as you walk through the front door, the story begins.
Now close your eyes and come with us.
Do you hear it? The sound of footsteps on the age-old chianche, the roughness of these flagstones handcrafted by masters of an ancient tradition. The secret niches, the coolness of the ancient underground cistern.
LISTEN TO THE FOOTSTEPS
The elegant star vaults and around you lime as white as sand. Buff stone, like that of the valley roads. The reddish hues of the cave rock, like those of the soil.
Last, but not least, the scents of Locorotondo tradition and in the sunset, chats on the terraces of 1783 – Dimora d’Epoca, where animals used to gather from the garden and where fragrant laundry was pegged out on drying racks.
1783 – Dimora d’Epoca
This is the enchanting scenario where you’ll find 1783 – Dimora d’Epoca.
When you stay with us, you’ll be able to enjoy the typical atmosphere of the old town without missing out on any of the comforts of a hotel.
1783 – Dimora d’Epoca is an architectural gem, a small, detached block in the historic centre. This is the only such block in Locorotondo; all the other buildings are adjacent to one another.
Around and within the walls of our Dimora you’ll breathe in the history of its construction.
1783 – Dimora d’Epoca is located in the historic centre of Locorotondo, a town in the heart of Puglia’s Itria Valley, also known as Valle dei Trulli.
Origins of the name
Before acquiring the name of Locorotondo (U Curdùnn, in local dialect), the town was called Casale San Giorgio, in honour of its patron saint. Later it became Casale Rotondo, then Luogorotondo, and its current name dates back to 1834.
This place name – toponym – refers to its uniquely striking trait, the actual shape of the historic centre, with the white houses built as a series of concentric rings.
