Torre Coccaro is the name of this Masseria built in the 16th-century, that was restored in 2002 bringing it back to the antique splendour as a charming boutique hotel whilst respecting the nature of the masseria itself.
The Masseria is today a five star small luxury hotel, a relaxing oasis of tranquillity where the guests will experience the natural and simple lifetime of the past. As many other Apulian Masserias, situated just 2 km from the sea, Torre Coccaro was a sighting tower built in order to avoid the attacks of the Turkish pirates and the Saracens. With the passing of time the Masserie have been used for the production of the green gold: the olive oil and Torre Coccaro is in the biggest producing area of high quality olive oil in Italy.
Guests can enjoy promenades through the olive groves and along the sandy beach on horseback. There is an Aveda Spa Health Club (even a hairdresser) that has been created in a stone cave formerly used to accommodate sheep! The shower in the Spa is like a waterfall and treatment rooms have original stone walls, giving a rustic feel. Other Spa facilities include a small indoor pool and Jacuzzi as well as a Turkish bath and a gym. The treatments follow the Aveda philosophy and some treatments use the local traditions such us the hair treatment made with capers handpicked from the Masseria's estate.
