Explore Puglia’s most beautiful towns with a stay in a romantic restored masseria with an idyllic outdoor pool – includes breakfast and extras

Surrounded by the velvety hills of the Valle d’Itria, Masseria Grieco’s pale gold stone gleams in the Apulian sun. The restored farmhouse is the perfect setting for romance, with charming bedrooms to hole up in, a picturesque swimming pool for leisurely dips while admiring the views and a traditional restaurant for dinners à deux. There’s a reason why it’s a popular wedding destination: under the sparkling stars and inky black sky of this unspoilt region in the very south of Italy, it’s hard not to fall in love with Masseria Grieco.

Great care has been taken to ensure that the masseria’s original features remain: bedrooms have cool stone walls and vaulted ceilings, while the conical roofs around the square are characteristic of area – even the food served up in the restaurant has its roots in nonna’s kitchen. Amid the graceful arches and grand staircases of this little patch of paradise in Puglia you’ll discover a place where time appears to have stood still.

While it’s tempting to pick your spot for the duration and stay within the cossetting confines of the hotel, the region is brimming with beautiful towns to explore and glorious countryside to discover. Spend a morning shopping at Ostuni’s open-air markets, hire bikes to pedal around the trulli houses of Alberobello or book a table in one of Martina Franca’s backstreet restaurants to taste the slow food revolution for yourself.

A city tax of €1 per person, per night is payable directly to the hotel.
