Lodges

il Melograno

This 5 star hotel and wellness resort is housed in a 17th century fortified farmhouse which has been lovingly and faithfully restored. Furnished with antiques, exquisite carpets, paintings and large tapestries, Il Melograno is surrounded by the colours and scents of a large flower garden and is in extraordinary harmony with the surrounding area.

Masseria Cervarolo

The Masseria Cervarolo is an oasis of green set in the glorious Pugliese countryside just a few kilometres from the stunning “White City” of Ostuni. This great building is a superb example of a typical masseria with both large country house and attached trulli dwellings now transformed into stylish accommodation with a big heart. Discover the landscapes of the Valle d'Itria while biking with us and ignite your senses!
