Masseria Torre Maizza 

Following a significant renovation, the stylish retreat of Masseria Torre Maizza opened its doors in May combining Rocco Forte’s signature Anglo-Italian style of service, warmth and hospitality with a contemporary, modern design in Italy’s most exciting destination, Puglia. Set in the charming area of Savelleteri di Fasano, along the Adriatic coast and surrounded by ancient olive groves, the resort is an original farmhouse dating back to the 16th century. An investment of over €6-million has brought the property back to its natural beauty. The resort now features 40 lavish suites all with stunning views of the Apulian countryside, including the addition of the magnificent two-bedroom Torre Suite, located on the top floor of the Masseria’s original tower. 

Guests have a variety of amenities to choose from while staying at the resort, including a 20 metre pool, a 9-hole executive golf course, access to a private beach club, and fitness centre and spa treatments at the Rocco Forte Spa. 

Golf course

Surrounded by ancient olive and almond trees, Masseria Torre Maizza’s Golf Club combines an idyllic Apulian landscape with excellent facilities. A 1,150-metre, par 27 course with exquisitely manicured greens, players can take advantage of fantastic sea views after honing their skills at the driving range, putting green, pitching green or practice bunker.

Test your game on a course that offers several challenges across its nine picturesque holes. Navigate water hazards like the lake on holes 2 and 8, and take on the native maquis shrubland near holes 4 and 7. Many of the course’s greens are cleverly positioned at different levels, with scenic 700-year-old olive trees featuring prominently at every turn. The resort also offers golf sets, trolleys and carts to rent.
