We arrived at Montelauro more or less accidentally, after our airbnb villa fell through and booked ad hoc the last two rooms they had open. What a wonderful team of staff here, from reception to the person looking after the grounds and the bartender - everyone was just super friendly and kind and very welcoming! We loved the gardens which are a breath of air in the heat and the proximity to Otranto which you can reach either by car or a quick taxi ride.
We had only drinks and snacks here as the restaurant was closed, so I cannot speak for the quality of food but there are so many options around that this was not an issue at all. The drinks at the bar are great though!!
The rooms are also lovely decorated, slightly loud due to poor soundproofing and could have done more with the showers, but overall very comfy and cosy.
We would love to return to Montelauro and heartily recommend it as the most welcoming place we visited in Puglia.More
