This 17th century fortified farmhouse with views of the Adriatic has been meticulously restored, maintaining its historical integrity and charm while offering 21st century comfort and elegance with minimal environmental impact
Fiorentina is a large estate that lies just moments from the Adriatic in the heart of Puglia. Originally a fortified farmhouse, traditionally the masseria and the surrounding land would have provided shelter and support for a number of families, keeping them safe from maritime raiders.
Today, several hundred years later, an exquisite renovation pays respect to the building’s architectural heritage, meticulously maintaining the original features while looking to the modern-day comfort of guests. The property continues to offer shelter, albeit in ineffable luxury, privacy and style.
The masseria and pool house include nine bedrooms, three kitchens, large living and dining areas, a wine room, orangery, hammam, two pools, a chapel and four hectares of gardens – all of which cosset guests in intimate and original fashion, leaving a very small environmental footprint.
The property’s prominent position offers vast views along the Adriatic coastline and guests can pop to fabulous beach clubs and lidos, visit the pretty towns and villages of the Itria Valley and taste wine at some of the region’s most celebrated vineyards. The lure of Fiorentina is strong, however, and the team of staff at the property is perhaps best placed to showcase the incredible local produce and wine in surroundings that quietly whisper luxury.
