Torre dell'Orso

A dreamy Puglian farmhouse with outdoor pool and gleaming sea views, half an hour from the baroque wonders of Lecce - includes breakfast

With sheer cliffs plunging into startlingly jewel-toned waters, Torre dell’Orso is a glorious pocket of southern Italy famed for its stunning coastline and Mediterranean lifestyle. A crescent of silvery sand is worthy of Blue Flag status, and it's here, just steps from the sweeping dunes and pine forest that Borgo Sentinella can be found. Housed in a pair of whitewashed masserie - all creamy exposed stone, shuttered windows and gnarly olive trees - this Puglian beauty is perched on a hill for prime sea views.

Inside, you'll discover a clutch of charming rooms and suites, while outside a seasonal swimming pool lined by sun loungers is the ultimate spot for downtime. If you can drag yourself away from the hotel's charms, Lecce is just a 30-minute drive away, where you'll discover its baroque buildings, pretty piazzas and ornate cathedral.
