3 Luxury masserias for your Italian summer

We caught the Frecciabianca train once from Bologna to Lecce: it took four hours to get to Foggia, and another four to the end of the line.

Puglia is much bigger than you think.

At LOVEThESIGN we like to explore new places like a local: you can find a hotel anywhere, but the pleasure of breakfasting on a just-baked pasticciotto as you lean over a Lecce stone balcony is priceless.

And that’s why we've chosen three masserias that are perfect for your next holiday in the south! Now all you need to do is relax and get ready to explore new little-known places as you soak up the warm Puglia atmosphere. And pack your bags, obviously.

An ancient village with every comfort? That's Borgo Egnazia, where every little detail evokes and celebrates Puglia's rural tradition, thanks to the contribution of artist and designer Pino Brescia.

Opened in 2010 and overlooking the Adriatic, this is a complex of stone-built farmhouses that offers three types of accommodation: the Central Courtyard (63 rooms), the Borgo - the heart of the complex - (92 cottages) and the Villas (a total of 29), perfect for families or visitors seeking greater privacy.

Why choose between a plate of orecchiette or laganari pasta and one of raw Puglia fish with views of the sea? The complex contains six restaurants which use only prime local ingredients, some grown in the village itself, a 2000 square metre Spa, a golf course, two private beaches and numerous children's activities and spaces.

And the extra-special touch? Local advisors are at your disposal to make your Puglia experience unique. There’s nothing better than getting advice from local people who know and love their area about upcoming excursions or the best spot on the coast to watch the sunset.

For information:

On the Ionian coast and surrounded by a vineyard, an olive grove and Mediterranean maquis, Masseria Le Fabriche is the perfect destination if you’re looking for rural tourism, yet only four kilometres from the sea.

The building dates back to the seventeenth century and lies in an area renowned for the production of Primitivo di Manduria wines. To explore the area, Le Fabriche organises horseback excursions and guided tours for its guests. And the journey of discovery continues at the table: food here is traditional, locally produced and organic.

Do you prefer classic Salento? A fortified seventeenth-century masseria is the answer for you: Tenuta Monacelli bears the traces of local history and traditions, such as olive growing.

Immersed in nature, you can enjoy the wellness area and pool, ride a horse and visit local wineries. And, of course, sample the very best of traditional Salento and Puglia cuisine right on the terrace.
