Distinctly Italian sitting at the Adriatic heel in Puglia, (Savelletri di Fasano, Ostuni & Torre Canne) this is a firm favourite with those looking to escape, set amongst the olive groves and natural scene, a chic Agriturismo close to the San Domenico Golf Club.
Masseria Cimino, winner of the Tatler 101 Best Hotels Awards, is a melange of the Mediterranean –tune your mind to lumpy unwaxed lemons, sun bleached fortified walls (white-washed of course) a theatrical set of the olive groves – all twisted + knotted, green golfing lawns, and the blue yonder of the Adriatic - a backdrop that would be tempting enough – however the interior fix of this period farm house is simply hotter than the beating sun.
The whole colour palette speaks of pastoral collage, darts of vividness merge the tones of white, which cleverly canvas numerous objets d’art hailing back to the times of the bucolic past, the house pays an artisan tribute to it’s rich agricultural roots.
At dusk, the place is illuminated by staged candles lending yet another rich candescent layer of dapper sophistication whilst adding a touch of the dramatic to the ancient ramparts.
The vibe is relaxed rather than formal, it is family owned + run, just the way we like ‘em. A place to meander the days away, all chilled + just ever so Italian,
Edit 2: THE HOUSE MIX - Hidden amongst the lush valleys, rolling humps, bumps and peaks of Europe are our rural gems that echo unmistakable village vogue created by local heroes. Villas, quaint houses and rustic boltholes bring a mature, sophisticated bunch into the second of our series.MORE
