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 30 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.

For a twin-centre holiday, a week at Masseria le Torri can also be combined with another at the Masseria Potenti, with its unique blend of vintage chic and exceptional service.

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.
