The neighbourhood

The site has been settled since ancient times, as testified by archaeological finds dating between the 3rd and the 7th century BC. The foundation of the town dates back to around 1000 AD as an unfortified hamlet under the jurisdiction of the Benedictine monastery of St. Stephen in Monopoli. The estate of various feudal lords for 500 years, it saw an increase in population, housing development, and the construction of the walls and castle. The Caracciolo family, Dukes of Martina Franca and the last feudal lords, remained in Locorotondo until the beginning of the 19th century.

Main sights
Street in the center, with the clock tower in the background
Locorotondo's heritage includes the Mother Church of "St. George the Martyr", built between 1769 and 1821 and including 14th century basreliefs; the church of "San Rocco", the Romanesque church of "Our Lady of Greece". The beauty of the historic centre is also represented by a labyrinth of white alleys, jealously guarded by their inhabitants. The houses are topped with unusual pitched roofs called "cummerse", a feature typical of the historical centre of Locorotondo.

The Locorotondo countryside is an example of an area of dispersed settlements (jazzelere) and has an abundance of trulli dwellings which were built around a communal area called "jazzile". This settlement pattern is due in large part to emphyteutic leases, particularly in the 19th century for the development of vineyards.[1]

Locorotondo DOC[
The commune of Locorotondo produces a white Denominazione di origine controllata (DOC) Italian wine that can be made in a still or sparkling Spumante style. The DOC includes 1,650 hectares (4,000 acres) of vineyards. All grapes destined for DOC wine production must be harvested to a yield no greater than 13 tonnes/ha. The wine is made predominantly (50-65%) from Verdeca and Bianco d'Alessano which can make up 45-50% of the blend. Additional grapes are permitted up to a maximum of 5% including Bombino bianco, Fiano and Malvasia Toscana. The finished wine must attain a minimum alcohol level of 11% in order to be labelled with the Locorotondo DOC designation.

A lovely flat, fantastic vintage style interior. Very quiet, in one of the nice streets of Locorotondo. There were some breakfast facilities which I really valued. Bathroom could be a bit cleaner but really no big deal. Communication was straight forward, Angela was responsive on .

I stayed with my 2 best friends in the cosy and romantic Casa Aprile. The apartment looks exactly as on the pictures and location is really down town. Parking around the corner in walking distance. Lovely spot to stay as a couple!

This is a great little apartment. It's cosy, clean and homely, with fantastic views over the valley, whilst being right in the middle of old-town Locorotundo. There is a good choice of restaurants within 1 5 min walk and the town is beautiful - really worth a visit, possibly even more than Alberobolo, although try to go to both! Everything works as you'd hope, although the shower could be a bit better. Pots/pans/towels/milk/water etc were all there when we arrived, so that was great. Angela was excellent! Her place was as described/expected and she was extremely quick at replying to messages. It's very easy to get the keys and connect to wifi - we connected whilst outside the front door in order to call over . All the necessary info is provided before arrival. Overall, I'd recommend this place to anybody - both the town and Angela's AirBnb. You won't be disappointed!

One of the best houses we have ever been. It is lovely, perfect located and nicely decorated. Communication with Angela was perfect since the first moment and she is really helpful. If you are visiting Puglia please use this house as Locorotondo is one of the nicest village on the area and you can reach easily all the main points of interest. Even you will find two nice tratorias just opposite the house!!!

Angela has a lovely house in Locorotondo! If you walk out of the house you are in the centre of this lovely village. It's a good spot to go to all the nice places in the neighbourhood. We liked Locorotondo because it's less touristic than the other places. It's easy to park the car nearby. And the contact with Angela was perfect! Great experience and I would recommend it!
