About the location

Stay in a gorgeous 15th Century farmhouse just 3 kilometres away from the coastal town of Conversano in the Puglia region of southern Italy and only 40 minutes from Bari airport.

Known for its idyllic beaches, UNESCO sites, and beautiful art, the region of Puglia is easy to explore by car or train. Dotted with charming towns, you can see sprawling Italian countryside as well as traditional Italian villages such as nearby Conversano, which rests on a plateau bordering the Murgia hills overlooking the coast.

The farmhouse sits inside dry stone walls with cherry, olive, and almond tree groves, a charming rural chapel, and an ancient lake bed all a short walk or bike ride away. An on-site restaurant provides guests with delicious Mediterranean-style meals using only local recipes customised by the restaurant owner.

You’ll stay in one of the farmhouse’s 10 guest rooms, each named after a sign of the zodiac, and decorated in a provencal style. The original 19th Century floors as well as various antiques from the previous family who farmed here are still visible and in use in the rooms. All three first floor rooms have balconies overlooking the surrounding countryside, and the seven remaining rooms are in the renovated attic space with amazing views from their high windows.

In your free time, unwind by the luxurious swimming pool, visit the 17th Century murals at the chapel, or wander through the tranquil and spacious gardens. Modern amenities such as WiFi, air conditioning, television, and mini fridges have also been fitted in each room to make your stay as comfortable as possible.

Relax and be inspired under the Italian sun, while enjoying an Italian cookery or yoga holiday with a difference.
