When arriving at Masseria Torre Coccaro, you will see ancient olive groves where connoisseur olive oil is pressed, a wave-lapped Adriatic shore where a private yacht is moored, and a restored farmhouse where you will be staying. The farmhouse is hundreds of years old and is more fortress than a house. In the days of pirate attacks and Ottoman raids, people fortified their houses in order to defend themselves. Nowadays, it is a boutique hotel with antique furniture, gold-curled mirrors, and fine linen sheets.
There is an Aveda spa and Turkish baths; a gym with an outdoor pool. The hotel is swinging distance from a 27-par golf course and attached clubhouse. The beach is perfectly maintained with wooden walkways and palm-leaf shades. Water sports are available and you can take a ride on the private yacht to visit the sea caves of Polignano a Mare and the local historic seaports. The yacht will also find you the perfect spots to dive and snorkel in clear waters.
