  • Overview

    Villa Magnolia is the smallest privately-run luxury boutique hotel in Puglia for adults only. This 18th-century noble villa - with just 4 vast suites - is an intimate hideaway where guests are guaranteed attentive, personal service. With good food and great wine this chic retreat is the perfect place to relax your mind, pamper your body and replenish your spirit! Set within a generous 4 hectares of land full of ancient olive trees, almond groves and fruit trees in the heart of Puglia, guests can enjoy the beautiful natural surroundings in peace.

    ABC News rated Villa Magnolia as one of the top 10 eco-vacation hot spots. Eco-sustainability is at the heart of life at the villa.  All domestic hot water is generated from solar thermal panels. Rainwater is collected and stored to supply the house and the beautiful Roman-style saltwater swimming pool and sunken Jacuzzi in the 'Temple' - an area for total relaxation. The saltwater eliminates the need for pool chemicals while providing an overall beneficial experience. The philosophy of this chic retreat is to provide a tranquil, beautiful experience with minimum impact on the environment. 


    In the grounds of Villa Magnolia there is a gorgeous roman-style saltwater swimming pool with temple and sunken Jacuzzi. Comfortable loungers provide a relaxing environment to soak up the southern Italian sun and view the intense blue of the Puglian sky. The raised temple area, surrounded by ancient olive trees, provides a tranquil setting for a variety of massage therapies. These can also be arranged in the privacy of your room. Yoga courses are also available (pre-booking required) as are authentic southern Italian cookery courses during the low season.

    Once a week the restored wood-fired oven is charged up with olive wood for the pizza-making evening. Fresh vegetables from the garden are roasted followed by an oven-hot focaccia to start the event. Pizza follows and all are welcome to make their own. Mountain bikes are available to guests at this small chic hotel and horse riding and golf are nearby. Guests are also invited to plant their own 'fruit tree' to offset their carbon footprint!  Pool towels and beach mats are provided free of charge.


    On the estate of Villa Magnolia, only organic produce is grown; zucchini, Aubergines, peppers, tomatoes, grapes, oranges & lemons etc, and of course delicious extra virgin olive oil. Home-cooked dinner at the villa is optional 2-3 nights per week and guests will be presented with the evening's set menu in the morning. All food is produced using local organic and fresh seasonal produce.
