Arrival day: Any Car hire: Recommended
Masseria Le Pezzate is a wonderful retreat in a glorious setting, the perfect place to simply charge your batteries or as a base for exploring the sites of southern Puglia. The proprietress – Benedetta – will make you feel like a house-guest the moment you enter the lovely gated courtyard, nothing is too much trouble.
The simple but stylish renovated bedrooms are all part of the original farmhouse. They've been prettily furnished using local materials and offer a great level of comfort. The absence of modern day technology enhances Le Pezzate (who in their right mind would want to miss a minute of this great little B&B for some Italian TV?). A large roof terrace looks out over the olive and fig groves towards the small town of Scorrano, and just outside the courtyard you'll find the shimmering swimming pool, perfect for cooling down after a day exploring the countryside, or for simply relaxing by with a book and a chilled glass (or two) of local white wine.
A large Italian kitchen is used to prepare delicious breakfasts... home-baked bread and cakes abound along with some of Benedetta’s quince, orange and fig jams. The kitchen is also home to cookery courses whenever requested, enabling you to pass an hour or two observing and participating in the art of Pugliese fare. You may also like to learn the rudiments of the local folk dance La Pizzica great for working up an appetite for food and a thirst for some wine!
