Delightfully modern Masseria with views of the Adriatic. Puglia is a beautiful place and the Agriturismo Borgo San Marco is surely its equal in terms of charm. This boutique hotel was built by the Knights of Malta in the fifteenth century, the San Marco is surrounded by olive groves and vistas of the Adriatic. The raw material of the place is stunning, yet over the years, it had fallen into picturesque disrepair, until, that is, Mr Amati and family bought it in 1981. The transformation under his auspices has been stunning, and in effect, he has turned the San Marco into a delightfully modern Masseria, one which has more to offer than simply the blend of hospitality and tradition.

Yes, the typical foursquare architecture remains, but San Marco manages to go further with its bohemian atmosphere and imaginative use of space. The stables, for example, have been turned into the bar; the horses drinking troughs have metamorphosised into basins, whilst the original olive press sits in the middle of the public room. Bedrooms surrounding the former farmyard are even done in sheer Egyptian embroidered-patchwork textiles and combinations of baby-blue silk and tobacco-coloured linen.

Not all rooms are in the modern mould, however. Some are more traditional with painted iron beds and antique walnut furnishings, so the decor at the San Marco is anything if not eclectic. As with many Masserias, cuisine is an integral part of a stay here.

Guests can delight in Peppino Palmisano’s Puglia cuisine, making the Borgo San Marco a delicious place to stay in more way than one.

Traumurlaub in Apulien

Date of stay 10/07/2021
Die Unterkunft hat unsere Vorstellungen übertroffen. Beeindruckendes weitläufiges Anwesen, geschmackvoll restauriert unter Einbeziehung der historischen Substanz, eingebettet in uralte Olivenbäume, traumhafter, südlicher Gartenanlage, wunderschöner Schwimming-Pool. Wir wohnten in der Dependance, was zwar zur Folge hatte, dass wir das Auto nutzen mussten um das Hauptgebäude/Pool zu erreichen, war aber kein Problem. Diese Einheit bestand aus 2 Appartements mit gemeinsamer Dachterrasse, war sehr ruhig gelegen mit fantastischem, überdachtem Terrassenbereich (pro Einheit, nicht gegenseitig einsehbar) Aussendusche, Bettwäsche, Handtücher von bester Qualität, alles super gepflegt. Das Frühstück und Abend-Essen war fantastisch, unheimlich freundliches, hilfsbereites Personal. Der Innenhof - ein wunderschöner Ort für einen Cafe, einen Drink oder einfach zum Relaxen. Wir kommen sicher wieder.

We stayed at Borgo San Marco for 4 nights and it was exceptional. The masseria is C 16 so very authentic . The olive groves provide a relaxing backdrop. There was walking and exploring - found some caves, orange orchard , beautiful sea views from rooftop, a chapel with fresco ceiling . Staff were attentive and pleasant. We ate in 2 nights and 1 lunch and good quality local food . Only complaint - disposable cups only in room , no shampoo/ conditioner. Also you pay for pool towels . Coming from Australia we found these were normally all inclusive. We would highly recommend the place and ease of booking . Their email communication was efficient and personable. A truly unique secret place .

Schön gelegenes gepflegtes Hotel in der Nähe zum Meer, Zimmer wie beschrieben. Frühstück gut. Die Atmosphäre war uns etwas zu steril und unpersönlich. Sehr gut gefallen hat uns das Restaurant mit gehobener leckerer Küche zum annehmbaren Preis. Weine sind aus unserer Sicht nicht so zu empfehlen.
