Traditional charm and modern luxury in southern Italy

Our featurted hotel of the month is Masseria Torre Maizz, a former Puglian watch tower and working farm converted into a luxury 5 star hotel. We love the combination of traditional character and modern luxury in such an idyllic setting surrounded by orchards and vineyards. In addition the hotel has its own golf course set amongst ancient olive trees and the stunning Coccaro Beach Club.
