Masseria Torre Maizza One of the most striking components of this hotel are the massive olive trees everywhere, some more than 1000 years old. I love the way they twist.

Highs & Lows

  • The restaurant – beautiful buffet in the morning and unbelievably fresh fish dishes at night.

  • The sister beach club is a must see for the day.

  • The hotel’s Aveda spa is incredible – go for a seaweed wrap and turkish bath, it was deluxe.

  • The hotel’s golf course is so beautiful and teeny, it’s a fun afternoon to play the nine holes (all par 3) with a beverage… and preferably barefoot!

  • A little isolated and a drive from the beach.

  • Super simple – not your typical Italian beach holiday.
