Amy Adejokun Section editor

Once upon a time there was a beautiful 17th century masseria (fortified farmhouse) set between vines and olive groves, its white walls lined with pink trimming and interspersed with little steeples. Its French-speaking owner drew his inspiration from the very Italian concept of 'Arte Povera' when renovating to create this gem of a hotel.

    Location 7.0 /10

    In Pezze di Greco, a hamlet in the commune of Fasano. The region is traditionally one of feasts, celebrations and other festive occasions. Easter of course, but also fruit, larder, olive, meat, mushroom and cheese festivals among others...Any excuse for a party! The owner would be delighted to help you get started.

    Accommodation 8.20 /10

    The establishment's 15 guest rooms are large even in the basic category. Inviting, elegant, and full of salvaged bits and bobs that serve as taps, lamps, and hanging baskets (the chandeliers made from carob pods will make you laugh), they feature exposed stone and woodwork. Each one is different but they all have a private bathroom and toilet. The 'Rustic' guest rooms, the cheapest, are in the tower and have a balcony with a view of either the garden or the sea. The Junior suites are larger: around 35m2 with an extra sofa. The suites have either a small garden or a private veranda. A romantic suite has been built in a cave under the house, with a very surprising bed and the perfect atmosphere for a honeymoon.

    Overview 8.20 /10

    You'll feel right at home at the Montenapoleone. The small gardens sheltered from the wind, the arbours leading on from one another, the small courtyards lined with low stone walls, patiently piled up by generations of farmers: sooner or later you arrive at the superb swimming pool, also perfectly sheltered from the sea breeze. There is nothing missing: the golf course is just over a mile away and the clay pigeon shooting pitch not much further. The beach is at the end of the road, and mountain bikes are available to guests. Indeed, the region is a paradise for cyclists, with hundreds of miles of small, well marked trails. The good thing is that the Italians know the roads here are highly frequented by cyclists and thus exercise a degree of caution. More than normal. There is a room set aside for massages. The reception is overflowing with local products, all organic of course. The masseria specialises in cooking classes; a good reason to stay an extra night so that you can finally get the hang of cooking spaghetti or making a Neapolitan sauce.

    Food and drink 8.70 /10

    The masseria has a superb restaurant under the age-old vaults, not far from the swimming pool. It also has a sea view. The breakfast buffet (unless there are only a few rooms occupied) is composed of local products. It goes without saying that they are all organic. A light lunch is served on the terrace, while dinner is more of a gourmet affair. Twice a week there is a tasting dinner consisting of the 'musts' of the region and the season. The restaurant is renowned and highly popular with the locals. Cooking lessons.

    To know

    Over half a mile separates the house from the impressive gate alongside the road that winds between the low stone walls behind Ostuni. Over half a mile of almond trees, fig trees, grapevines and olive groves of course. The house is situated at the end, with the sea 800m below. A half-farm half-fortress building with a solid square tower, built like in the old days when it was best to know in advance who was arriving. Set in the countryside and without any neighbours, it has the air of a small colonial fort. The reception area is small but full of books on the region and other information that the hotelier provides in abundance on request. Passionate about his land, he loves nothing more than to share this passion with his guests.
