We love the Masseria Montenapoleone’s own initial description as being "located in Puglia, southern Italy, somewhere between magic and forgotten".
“Somewhere between magic and forgotten” has a poetic but true ring about it. You can also add between history and culture. This is a place remarkably unscathed by the ravages of mass tourism, despite the region as a whole being a magnet for travelers looking for that combination of Italy and the Mediterranean culture.
But back to Masseria Montenapoleone: once open the door of one of the suites, you are carried away to a world of bucolic and rural beauty. Each of the suites has been designed differently with revived artifacts which are both a journey into imagination, and a memory of a time gone.
An endemic nostalgia transports you to a time that you now belong to, all the while surrounded by all the modern amenities you need. The Masseria Montenapoleone provides an accommodation service (B&B formula) with 7 “Suites” and 5 “Rustic Rooms”. The suites are equipped with air conditioning, mini fridge, WI-FI, TV , lounge sofa, bedroom, safe box. The seaside is just 5 minutes down the road from the Masseria with an abundance of relaxing and reclining choices.
The Masseria MONTENAPOLEONE offers a perfect location from where visitors are just a blink away from the main places and sites in the heart of Puglia, such as: - The city of Fasano, immerse in the land of the millenary olive trees has one of the biggest Zoo Safari in Europe, - Ostuni: the so-called “White City”, - Alberobello: the capital of the “Trulli” white dry-stone houses with conical roofs made of lapidary stone.

Having a Mediterranean climate means that you can enjoy the outdoors all year round. The weather is never too cold, nor really too hot – because of a lovely ocean breeze. The flat and coastal areas of Puglia are hot and dry in summer, and not that rainy in winter. From March to May the temperature hovers at 20°C, while May through September it varies from 25°C to 38°C.
After a short, mild winter, spring bursts into life in the region. Fields carpeted with wild flowers lead the way to open air markets, bucolic back roads and charming villages. It is the season to enjoy blooming Almond trees, fresh sea urchins and raw seafood by the sea. For the culinary-inclined, have burrata mozzarella cheese made fresh in front of your eyes.
While your summer adventures can include the beaches, the Zoo Safari and various outdoor evening outings, the rest of the seasons can bring into focus the magnificent landscape, it’s colours and flavours. Different festivals throughout the year celebrate the produce and specialized crafts of the region.
The fall is spectacular in Puglia, where you experience the continuity of thousands or years for the grape and olive harvest. You are invited to taste and learn everything about the multiple varieties of olive oil and their uses. Autumn is also a perfect time to go wine tasting, and explore the entire process of grape-to-wine.
Although more quiet, winter offers a serene getaway, when you might often be the only visitor having a unique and more personal experience with the region and its inhabitants. Aside from the many historical sites and ruins to visit, it is also citrus season.
The region around the Masseria Montenapoleone is rich in history and culture, yet has remained remarkably untouched by mass tourism, and therefore retains a charm seldom found in these well-travelled parts of Europe. Wedged by two seas in the heel of the Italian boot, Puglia is well known for its charming countryside. Miles of vineyards, golden fields of grain and millenary olive trees, some as old as 2000 years, make you forget everything that you came to forget.
The food, the architecture and the ruins of the area speak of a rich history of conquests and settlements in the area. Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Longobards, Arabs, Normans, Turks, the French and the Spanish, have all managed to leave their traces in the wines, sauces, and sometimes unusual fruits of the region.
Lending an even richer character to Puglia, are its typical dolmen and grottos, which have survived, many intact, through the ages. The most intriguing of our heritage structures is the octagon of Castle del Monte. The bleached-white walls of Ostuni mesmerize, just as the Baroque architecture of Martina Franca and Lecce incite dreams well into hot the summer nights.
Known as the “wine cellar of Italy”, Puglia is one of the biggest wine producing regions of Italy, with nine “strade del vino”, routes that turn you into a sommelier yourself. Complemented by an explosion of culinary delights, your stay in the region can only be one that you will return to over and over again.
An endless array of crafts, the seaside always nearby, the biggest safari zoo in Europe in Fasano... Masseria Montenapoleone is the ideal luxury boutique hotel for you to forget that other world... the one you came from.
