Stay in the heart of trulli country at a beautifully restored 19th-century masseria in Puglia’s Valle d’Itria - includes breakfast plus spa and dining discounts

Martina Franca is perfectly Puglian: a network of narrow, winding alleyways, Baroque palaces, elegant Rococo buildings and sun-splashed piazzas where street markets sell colourful vegetables and all manner of hams, cheeses and oils. It’s known as the ‘capital’ of the Valle d’Itria – trulli country – a region of limestone cliffs, deep ravines, plunging streams and rolling green hills where almonds and olives grow.

One of the best ways to experience the charms of the valley is to stay at a converted masseria like Villa San Martino. This elegant 19th-century farmhouse has been restored using only original materials and is stuffed to the rafters with antiques and furniture made by skilled local artisans. Bedrooms are draped in fine silks, the restaurant serves classic Puglian dishes and the peaches-and-cream exterior looks pretty from your position by the pool.

Located on the outskirts of Martina Franca the hotel is a great base for exploring the region, with the UNESCO-listed trulli of Alberobello a short drive away and the groves and gardens of the surrounding valley ideal for afternoon strolls. Hire a car and visit olive oil museums, medieval towns and even the coast, or just relax with a spa treatment or read a book by the pool.

Dining

Duca di Martina is the hotel’s traditional restaurant, featuring cuisine from around Puglia and further afield. While Puglian food is often described as ‘home cooking’, Duca di Martina offers a fine dining experience created with fresh, authentic ingredients sourced from the local area. The beautifully furnished dining room is decorated in a classically elegant style, lit with warm, low lighting that provides a romantic atmosphere. Menus are accompanied by good wines to enhance your meal.

Spa

The swimming pool is set within glorious gardens, with pots of colourful flowers and shady palm trees. There are sun loungers and umbrellas on the terrace for lazy lounging in the warm, Puglian sun. The Oasis spa has a Finnish sauna, Jacuzzi, hammam with chromotherapy and a gym. Massages, body wraps and facials are available and there’s a relaxation area where you can enjoy herbal infusions after your treatment.

Please note that in the months of April and October, the spa is only open on the weekend.

Location

The villa is surrounded by lush gardens just outside the Baroque settlement of Martina Franca, the capital of the Valle d’Itria. The area is famous for its trulli houses, and is home to a number of interesting towns including Alberobello, Locorotondo and Cisternino – it’s the perfect base for exploring Puglia.
