Masseria Torre Maizza

A Rocco Forte Hotel

What it is

A brand new former 16th century masseria (farmhouse) transformed into a design-forward, 40-room luxury resort with a 9-hole golf course and boundary-pushing spa.

What it isn't

Hands off. The Forte family owns 13 properties and they treat every guest as famiglia (for example: you’ll have as many comped boat trips to Monopoli and back as you like, complete with a farewell aperitif).

What we think

Olga Polizzi doesn’t suffer fools, and he doesn’t suffer bad design. The sister of Sir Rocco Forte has two of her own hotels in England, a dizzying number of memberships in charity boards, and she is also the director of design for Rocco Forte Hotels (not to mention the Deputy Chairman of the company). So when it came time to design the rooms at Masseria Torre Maizza, she approached it with the same attention to detail she brings every other project in her life, infusing each whitewashed room with locally-made art, charming pattern-on-pattern decor and rattan light fixtures. Bathrooms are lined with locally sourced Trani stone, and most suites are also fitted with fireplaces and private terraces that overlook an age-old olive grove or the Adriatic sea.

You're here because

It combines enchanting boutique hotel vibes with all the trappings of a luxury resort, including a par 27 golf course decked by 700-year-old olive trees and an orange blossom and sea-scented spa.

The Moment

Sometimes, the vacation version of you prefers to let someone else do the planning, which is why the resort’s many tailor-made experiences suit you to a tee. This afternoon, after touring the ceramic workshop of Cosimo Vestita, you join him on a tour of local gardens and medieval churches. Then, something even more delightful: a plate of taralli breadsticks and a glass of Puglian wine so crisp you nearly pinch yourself.

In Puglia’s ancient village of Fasano (population: 39,749), just a ten minute stroll from the train station. The seafront town of Savelletri is a six minute drive east, but it’s also worth heading 16 miles up the coast to Polignano a Mare to slurp gelato on a limestone cliff over the Adriatic.
