An ancient herbalist
restored to its former glory

Masseria Montelauro has lived many lives. Founded around the year 1000 A.D.,  it was a place of prayer, a meeting point for monks, and a Salento herbal laboratory until its renovation in the late 1800s,  when it took on a similar form to its current one. Today, Montelauro is a charming farmhouse, part of the Dimore Storiche (Historical Residences) and has received the UNESCO “La Fabbrica nel Paesaggio” (The Factory in the Landscape) Award. 

It is surrounded by olive and almond groves, yet just a stone’s throw away from the turquoise waters and Blue Flag beaches of the Otranto coast.

The regenerating tranquility of the countryside, the elemental joy of the sea: why choose when you can have it all?

begins at home

Montelauro is a family project. A family where we like to include all our guests, so that in every corner – from the rooms to the breakfast patio to the sofas under the wisteria – you feel at home. 

Once you pass through the gate, you will be greeted by the smiles and welcoming nature of our staff. You’ll be immersed in the relaxed atmosphere of authentic hospitality, without sacrificing modern comforts, and attentive, discreet service. All designed to make you feel right at home.

An oasis of relaxation

The pulsating heart of the farmhouse’s life is the outdoor area with its typical rural courtyard, equipped with cosy sitting areas, a swimming pool, and blooming pergolas. It’s an oasis of relaxation where guests gather for a refreshing aperitif or a friendly chat under the stars at sunset or after dinner.

And for an even more complete wellbeing experience, you can indulge yourself with one of our Wellness treatments: whether it’s an individual session or a couple’s treatment, each of our massages (lymphatic drainage, deep tissue, Ayurvedic, relaxation, Balinese) is personalised to harmonise with the alchemy of your body and mind.

Masseria Montelauro is a place to be fully experienced. It’s where people come together, share experiences, realign themselves, and enjoy the sweet life of Salento.
