Luxury Masseria with 5-star boutique hotel style service, set in a coveted location in the Piana Degli Ulivi Secolari where protected olive groves date back 1000 years. Built in 1800 as a country residence of the aristocratic Palmieri family, this completely renovated Masseria offers sumptuous, modern living amid these ancient groves, within 2km of the Adriatic coast. A stay at La Residenza includes use of the private beach club Torre Cocorro.
The beautifully maintained grounds provide a calming, green oasis; the large pool terrace ideal for sunbathing by day and relaxing in the evening as the sun sets and the crickets begin their evensong. Why not ask the concierge to arrange dinner al-fresco by the pool, or if you enjoy cooking yourself, cooking classes can be offered in-house. You can also enjoy spa treatments, yoga sessions and even have your hair done, all without leaving this sublime setting. If you do wish to head out for the day, there is plenty on offer from chauffeured tours to private boat hire, water sports to a round of golf on the local championship links course.
Of course this region is a delight for history buffs, with the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Alberobello offering museums dedicated to wine, olives and of course the Trulli; unique houses found only in this region. Trulli can also be found in Locorotondo and Cisternino. Head north along the coast and you come to Pulignano a Mare, perched dramatically on the cliff tops, birthplace of Domenico Mudagno and inspiration for his world-famous song Volare; a wonderful statue pays tribute to the singer and often inspires visitors to burst into song! Not to be missed are the Castellana Grotte, featuring an impressive underground world of stalactites and stalagmites. In the nearby woodland of Fasano, you have the Zoo Park, one of Puglia's top attractions for children and adults alike.
