Rising, dazzling white, above an olive grove, the Adult Only Masseria Le Torri has the presence, elegance and style that belongs in the pages of a magazine, with all the warm hospitality offered so effortlessly in this part of Italy. A recently completed renovation, it was a passion project that lasted ten painstaking years, during which the owner, Mimmo and his wife Silvana, realised his dreams of bringing life back into the old farmhouse he stayed in as a boy.

He follows in his mother’s footsteps – she opened the original masseria’s doors as a small hotel for the locals – but now he’s taking that vision of hospitality into spectacular new territory. Bringing his own 30 years as a restaurant manager with Silvana’s 20 years in the hotel industry, they share a commitment to quality and service that shines in everything they do; underpinned and inspired by Mimmo’s love for this beautiful building. It’s a combination we couldn’t resist!

The most recent incarnation of the masseria has a serene, dream-like quality about it: chandeliers and birdcages hanging from trees and sheer fabrics giving the nine en-suite double bedrooms an ethereal quality. They share the colour scheme that runs throughout the hotel – a harmonious combination of natural wood and stone, with the gentlest whites and creams. It’s complemented by the selection of carefully, creatively placed objects that help make every room unique: an open book with a red rose laid across it; antique wooden doors as headboards and, in one of the shared living spaces, an ancient piano, as pleasingly old-fashioned as the bed linen is sumptuously soft.

The shared swimming pool has more than a touch of Riviera glamour, brilliant white deckchairs and sunbeds lined up in rows beside the clear blue water, parasols on standby and a bar, serving drinks and light lunches. Delicious breakfasts are included in your stay and served in a room once used to dry the masseria’s abundant crop of almonds, although in the warmest months, tables and chairs are spread outside so you can start the day in the sunshine. For one night of the week, a wonderful spread of traditional Apulian fare will also be served, cooked in the original stone oven that belonged to Mimmo’s mother. It costs 35 euros per person and is payable locally.

When your thoughts turn to exploring, tap into the spirit of the original masseria and go horse riding, or, for something more cosmopolitan, historic Conversano is just a ten-minute drive away where dinner can come with a Michelin-star and all the best attractions are gathered around the lively main square. The coast and lovely town of Polignano a Mare are just a 15-minute drive away, where upmarket beach clubs, boat trips, diving and fishing can all be arranged on your behalf.

You’ll find the spectacular Castellana Caves and Monopoli, with its lovely old town, excellent restaurants, castle and pretty harbour, both a 25-minute drive away. There’s an archaeological museum and the upmarket San Domenico Golf in Fasano, half an hour away, and magical Alberobello, the charming city of the trulli, is unmissable and a 40-minute drive from the hotel. It’s one of a number of historic towns and villages that make Puglia such a fascinating – and deeply relaxing – place to stay.

Shorter breaks (minimum of 3 nights) are sometimes available and a stay here may be combined with one of our other hotels in Puglia. Call our sales team to enquire.

Customer feedback

Masseria Le Torri is a truly wonderful Simpson Travel treasure in a lovely part of Italy. Everything about the hotel and the surrounding countryside amazed us. A simple impromptu lunch under the gazebo in the garden was our most treasured memory and the very best culinary experience despite the simplicity of the menu. The staff are supremely helpful and attentive, everything you could hope for and more.
Michelle Spencer – Magnolia – October 2018

Another great holiday arranged for us by Simpson Travel. Looking forward to Easter and Summer holidays.
Grant Cunliffe – October 2018

Masseria Le Torri was like owning your own masseria in Puglia, a luxury property, with a pool, but with the benefit of staff, food and friends!
Mr Hodgson – September 2018

Masseria Le Torri is an exceptional property in a peaceful and idyllic setting. The owner, Silvana, is a lovely lady who goes out of her way to ensure all guests have exactly what they need and no request seems to be too much trouble or goes unresolved. A lovely base for touring around Puglia and as first timers this was a fabulous introduction to the delights of the region.
Mr H – September 2018

Masseria Le Torri is a magical oasis of calm. Luxurious and relaxing, we had a truly perfect holiday.
Teresa Callaghan – September 2018

Masseria Le Torri is a beautiful hotel in very peaceful surroundings. All the staff were very warm, helpful and hospitable. The room and bathroom were very attractively decorated, and we loved sitting on our terrace, looking out over the olive groves. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious – home-baked bread, cakes and pastries as well as an excellent choice of savoury items. The pool area was lovely, very relaxing and the gardens were very pretty.
Mrs Penney – September 2018

We had a lovely time in Masseria Le Torri – very hidden away and quiet.
Mrs Anderson – September 2018

My husband and I have just returned from a wonderful holiday in Puglia. Whatever we expected it was way and above our expectations, so many beautiful towns, cities and churches, each one very different, enchanting, and amazing. Matera is just one – an incredible city and a must to visit, it is quite awe-inspiring and breathtaking and yet unbelievably spiritual. The beaches are of soft pale sand and turquoise seas. Olive oil is in abundance with trees everywhere. Cafés, restaurants family-owned and Michelin star restaurants – the food is sublime, fresh fish, seafood, mostly eaten raw/cold. Farms growing olives, cherries, peaches, tomatoes and aubergines. The jewel in the crown is without doubt Masseria Le Torri. A large white manor house recently renovated by the owners with nine exquisite suites, each one slightly different. We slept on super king-size beds which the owner had had made (slept like a log).Excellent walk-in shower, lovely bedding, towels excellent, white and fluffy. The décor is pale grey with white and natural cream stone and wood. Our room had white muslin drapes and treasures from a bygone age, fantastic. Breakfast is and excellent choice of fresh fruit from the farm – cherries, apricots, melon and much more, also cakes, meats, cheeses and wonderful omelettes made fresh to order. Lunches were served on white tablecloths in the shade by the pool. Huge spaces to walk around, a lovely rose garden and a delightful swimming pool where we spent time when not sightseeing. The masseria is so peaceful, tranquil and has a magical feel. We didn’t want to leave. The staff cannot do enough for you but are not intrusive. Ketty and Nicolas at reception are just outstanding, Francesco (the Simpson Travel rep) is amazing – his knowledge of Puglia is second to none and nothing is too much trouble. On my husband’s birthday a cake had been made, champagne and fruit served in our suite, how fab was that. Two weeks and we could have stayed for more, so much to do and see. I left my heart in Puglia and cannot wait to go back. The incredible Masseria, the lovely people, the wonderful food especially the delicious tomatoes and Buratta cheese, which when cut oozes cream, and of course the olive oil and homemade bread, a meal to die for. Simpson Travel look after you so well as an individual, nothing is left to chance. Our holiday in Puglia was one of the most interesting yet relaxing holidays we have had. Magic, sheer magic. Thank you.

On a scale of 1 to 10 Masseria le Torri is a 12, honestly. Stunningly renovated and peaceful. It's staffed by a team who truly understand customer service. Our suite of rooms (previously the Masseria's chapel) were huge with high ceilings, original frescos and a private terrace that seemed to have sun all afternoon. Breakfasts were a feast of locally sourced food – from fruit and bread to cheese, cold meats and cake – never thought we'd be able to eat so much so early but we did, every day. All in all, brilliant.
Sue Gorman – May 2018

A very special place to stay, beautifully renovated by the owners with great attention to detail. We loved the vintage décor and the old table linen was just beautiful. Superbly comfortable bed and pillows and the best breakfast we have had anywhere, lots to choose from – local produce, different cheeses and cakes every day and cherries from their own trees. We spent our mornings exploring the many delightful old hill towns and the afternoons relaxing by the pool and enjoying the beautiful grounds. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. The restaurant they recommended in Locorotondo was really special and not somewhere we would have found ourselves. If you are planning a trip to Puglia, this would be a wonderful place to stay.
Paul and Paula Murfin – May 2018

A truly beautiful place where you relax the minute you arrive. The staff are incredibly helpful and the rooms a delight. Ideally located for exploring the local area. The food is exceptional and we can highly recommend the ‘Taste of Puglia’ evening at the hotel.
Mr and Mrs Daubrey – May 2018

A stunning hotel in a wonderful location – we had a very relaxing few days. Puglia is a beautiful region and we would highly recommend a visit.
Mrs Rowland – May 2018

If you want a taste of authentic Puglia, Masseria Le Torri could not be a better base from which to explore and relax.
Mr Cross – May 2018

A beautiful hotel in a beautiful part of Italy. Lovely peaceful location and within easy reach of the coast and other towns for visits and meals. Staff very accommodating. Another Simpson Travel triumph!
Mr O’Donnell – May 2018

If you are looking for a beautiful setting with people who really care that you have a wonderful holiday, then look no further. The food is out of this world, with cherries and olives picked from the owner’s land. A beautiful rose garden, olive trees, with areas to sit and just relax. Nothing is too much trouble and the staff will ensure a relaxed and special holiday. The nearest town is short drive away and is typically Italian with great food, ice cream, the sea and people watching. Also lots to see if you drive slightly further afield. We absolutely loved it and can’t wait to return.
Mrs Parker – May 2018

Beautiful Masseria Le Torri, stylishly appointed in a stunning location. Breakfast excellent and the Puglian evening is wonderful. Be brave and visit the kitchen to chat to the cook, it’s well worthwhile!
Mrs Ronaldson – May 2018

We had a wonderful four days at Masseria Le Torri, set in rural Puglia but within easy reach of so many places of interest; Alberobello, Monopoli and Polignano – all well worth a visit. The Masseria has an interesting history and has been lovingly and beautifully restored. Delightful hosts only too ready to help enhance your holiday. A wonderful place to relax in peaceful countryside. The evening meal of local Puglian dishes was simply superb, not to be missed. An Italian treat.
Mr Woodhead – May 2018

Our choice of Italian properties is diverse, ranging from simple charm to genuine luxury and style. Much of our portfolio is privately owned, and price alone is therefore not a universal guide. We contract all our accommodation in person, and each property has its individual appeal.

To help you make the right choice based on your own priorities, we have devised a simple grading guide to be considered in conjunction with each individual property description, awarding up to a maximum of five stars for the below categories.

There’s a different side of Italy to discover on a holiday in Puglia – the land of the trulli, ancient olive groves and historic towns that take you on a journey from Byzantine to Baroque. And then there are the countless beaches and beach clubs that capture the diversity of this absorbing destination: unspoilt, unpretentious and full of creative flair, where the generosity of the locals is matched by the excellence of its cuisine.
