Masseria Bagnara is a hotel and spa created from an imaginative and meticulous renovation of a run-down farmhouse about 1 km from some of the most beautiful beaches of Salento. It’s a seductive location surrounded by fields yet within easy reach of white sandy beaches and the town.
The inviting swimming pool is surrounded by a broad terrace with plentiful sunbeds, of a design carefully chosen to match the architecture. It’s a glorious spot for swimming, relaxation, watching the sunset or sipping wine or the barman’s speciality cocktails. For an alternative, the hotel is only 900m from the nearest beach where there are reserved places for Masseria Bagnara guests. There is even a shuttle service available.
The spa and wellness centre provides a wide range of personalised treatments designed to remove all forms of stress and infuse you with a long and lasting well-being. Choose from a range of massages, yoga classes, body treatments, beauty therapies, manicures, pedicures and a steam room.
The chefs at Masseria Bagnara create their dishes with an eye to the history of the region, with recipes, ingredients and secrets that make the Apulian cuisine so special. Everything is cultivated or fished within a few kilometres to ensure the true authenticity of the product.
All the rooms are immaculately prepared with every facility: air-conditioning, television, wi-fi, minbar, safe, pool towels and a luxury en-suite bathroom. They all have 180x200 queen-size beds and nearly all have a private outdoor space with outdoor furniture. The amount of space both indoors and out varies with the grade of room. The terrace room for instance has a 50sqm terrace with a private jacuzzi. Meanwhile the Executive suite has two double bedrooms and a separate living room with a sofa and two armchairs.
The beach, the swimming pool and the spa (not forgetting the restaurant and bar) may be sufficient for many guests, but the hotel also has plenty of other activities lined up. There’s the nearby riding school, cookery classes, wine-tasting and olive oil tasting sessions (accompanied by cheeses, meats and other regional delicacies), day-sailing on a yacht along the Salento coast or even a rickshaw tour to discover the baroque, art and history of Lecce with your own expert guide.
