Borgo Canonica Hotel

View all 15 Photos

Located in the Itria Valley in Puglia, this large complex provides guests the opportunity to relax in a traditional trullo, in complete comfort. The conical structures date back to the 1800s. Abandoned for years, they have been restored by Arkitetti Flore & Venezia, an architecture studio based in Ostuni, Puglia, Italy. The complex restoration project lasted over three years. It focused not only on preserving as much as possible from the original buildings but also on bringing the interiors to modern standards. Set between rolling hills and secular olive trees, Borgo Canonica Hotel celebrates its past and its natural surroundings.

The 15 suites have their own private garden, with guests also having access to a reception, common areas and an expansive outdoor area. The studio used mainly traditional materials, including natural stone, wood and iron. Modern bathrooms complement rough stone textures. Beige and brown tones help to enhance the warm, rustic atmosphere. Outside, guests can walk on the winding stone steps to the large pool and relax while admiring the gorgeous landscape.

Arkitetti Flore & Venezia designed a distinctive wardrobe for the hotel, Segno, which later appeared in the Officine Tamborrino catalog. Apart from preserving the character of the trulli, the studio also put an emphasis on sustainability. Eco-friendly features include natural ventilation as well as a rainwater collection system.
