Masseria Le Torri

Jane Anderson, Honeymoon expert Jane's verdict
Authenticity and experiential travel are buzzwords in travel today, but notoriously difficult to deliver, which is why I’m so happy to recommend the adult-only Masseria Le Torri in Puglia. Owner Mimmo used to stay in this old farmhouse when he was a boy, and with his wife Silvana, they have poured their passion and know-how into creating an exclusive, nine-bedroom enclave for newlyweds.

Simpson Travel says

Since our inception, we have been all about unearthing fabulous gems; the sort of intimate boutique hotels that ooze luxury and style.

  • Adult only
  • Beach clubs nearby
  • Intimate hotel

We call the most special of these “Simpson Hotels” and Masseria Le Torri, in the heart of Puglia, is one of them. This adult only boutique hotel has just nine exquisite suites and is simply made for romance.

The masseria is an historic building, painstakingly restored by experienced hoteliers, Mimmo and his wife Silvana. It’s been in Mimmo’s family for generations and he played there as a child.

The rooms are airy, light and spacious with a dreamy feel – each is highly individual and all have a delightful terrace or balcony.

Breakfast is included and light lunches are available by the pool, along with drinks from the poolside bar. Some of Puglia’s stylish beach clubs and a host of restaurants are all in easy striking distance (including one restaurant a short walk away).

Head to Conversano, a ten minute drive away, for stunning bars and restaurants, including Michelin-starred Pashà, and architectural highlights from the castle to the Romanesque cathedral and San Benedetto monastery.

Polignano a Mare is 15 minutes’ drive away with a wonderful beach vibe, summer festivals and the chance to head out on a romantic boat trip, fishing or scuba diving.

A little further afield is ancient Monopoli, founded by the Greeks, and you won’t want to miss the famous white ‘trulli’ houses of Alberobello, unique to this region.

For all Puglia’s wonderful places to discover and explore together, though, it’s really the Masseria Le Torri which will steal your hearts. We can’t recommend it highly enough.
