Situated in the idyllic landscape of Puglia and host of ancient olive trees (whose oils are used in its own restaurant), Masseria San Domenico complements the beauty of its past with its luxurious present. The place was just a family ranch used to host friends from all over the world and together enjoy the wonders of the region. Soon friends of friends started becoming curious to get to know and spend a few days at the site so the owner decided to rebuild and open to the public.
Just like the unexplored region, the hotel is full of hidden wonders, especially the caves under the property that used to be monk’s homes during the Middle Ages. The biggest cave (today next to the external pool) was used to store oil. The construction itself once was used as the Knights of Malta watchtower.
After a careful restauration, the tower became a small luxury resort. Its enchantments remember the region’s history, a land where the Eastern and Western cultures blend to perfection. Against the blue background of the sky and of the sea, the whitewashed stone buildings stand out amid the lush gardens, among which is a magnificent irregularly shaped pool surrounded by rocks and plants.
Make a relaxing trip back to the past and delight yourself with the wonders that Puglia and Masseria San Domenico have to offer.
