Elegant masseria with a contemporary theme, in glorious grounds with a super pool and just 2 kilometres from the pretty Ionian coastline and sandy beaches.
Arrival day: Any Car hire: Recommended
Masseria Bagnara sits in glorious grounds just a short distance from the pretty Ionian coastline and sandy beaches. This chic hotel has been completely renovated using the original part of the impressive Masseria plus some of the outbuildings to create elegant and comfortable accommodation.
The typical whitewashed walls of the Masseria welcome you and the main entrance takes you into a very stylish reception and lounge. All the materials used in the refurbishment are local and the contrast between the shiny and polished stone surfaces and the white walls has a superb effect along with some very clever lighting.
A particularly well-stocked bar leads into the dining room though we think you will be enjoying the beautiful courtyard for dining in the warm sunshine or under the sparkling stars. Surrounded but the bright white walls, this is the perfect place to enjoy some slow food and an excellent bottle of wine from the beautiful cantina a real work of art located in an old Trullo and a visit is an absolute must even if you are not a wine lover!
The 15 bedrooms are all designed with great style and are carefully furnished in keeping with the contemporary and chic feel that runs throughout Masseria Bagnara. All the rooms have an outside space with white sun umbrella and white furniture you will be dazzled at all times during your stay but not just in the sunshine. Carefully furnished with all comforts, the rooms are divided into deluxe and suites, the latter being even more spacious and the rooms are found on both ground and first floor.
The spectacular pool sits on a raised terrace surrounded by sun loungers and umbrellas from where you can snooze, watch the swimmers do some serious lengths (the pool is a super 25 metres long) or catch a glimpse of the shimmering sea in the distance. A small spa completes the picture where you can enjoy a heated indoor pool or one of many treatments and massages.
With the beach just 2 kilometres from the Masseria, you can choose to walk or take one of the hotels complimentary bicycles and enjoy a gentle cycle to the coast to Marina di Lizzano (7km, but all very flat) for coffee and delicious local cakes.
We are thrilled to add this stylish boutique hotel to our selection of hand-picked properties in Puglia and we know that you will have a super stay here.

We were extremely grateful to you all for organising this and especially Helen who managed to pull a 'rabbit out of a hat'. We really liked this place. Well run with a touch of modernity and some interesting Italian design. Our room was extremely spacious and comfortable. The sophisticated cocktail bar was a lovely surprise and the converted wine cellar was amazing (opposite our room). We also went to a great beach club with very interesting food. Not forgetting the lovely swimming pool which felt so close to the sea. The spa was also very pleasant.

Beautiful understated Masseria. Very well run. Close to a wonderful private beach and a number of high end Masseria locally made this a really memorable experience. Highly recommended.
