Somewhere between Monopoli and Ostuni, in the heart of the Italian Apulia (Puglia), the most curious ones will be able to discover a small unspoiled area overlooking the Adriatic Sea: Masseria Torre Coccaro. Being between land and sea, this intimist address (of barely 43 rooms!) is an ideal base for families who seek after a place of residence with singular and authentic charm. Old stones-lovers will be particularly enthralled!
As its melodious name suggests, Masseria Torre Coccaro is not just a boutique hotel like the others, it is a real country house that has been tastefully rehabilitated in a rural look. Every corner of this 16th century fortified farmstead is steeped in history. In addition to its 800-year-old olive grove, its original chapel and its pleasant garden framed by fortified walls, it is crowned by a magnificent vintage dovecote.
Being midway between Brindisi and Bari, this luxury farmstead is just some 50 km away from the Brindisi International Airport and 65 km away from the Bari Palese Airport.
Not long after throwing our gaze at Masseria Torre Coccaro, we immediately get carried away by the charm of its typically Mediterranean architecture. Its pristine white facade, beautifully punctuated by dry stone walls on which bougainvillea cascade, echoes the perched villages of the surrounding area.
In a rustic-chic atmosphere enhanced by vintage touches, families will undoubtedly find their happiness: in the large swimming pool area that is framed by olive trees; in the incredible spa located in a natural cave; at the beach or even in the gardens, which at nightfall is adorned with garlands of lights… simply magical!
