Fly into Bari or Brindisi airport and stay five nights at Masseria Bosco, an ideal base for exploring southern Puglia. Set in a fascinating historic building, rooms are incredibly comfortable, and the pool is superb. The food is magnificent, a combination of rustic Italian cooking, with a contemporary twist, all served with exceptional home-produced wine.
Drive to Patria Palace, a traditional style 5-Star hotel situated in the heart of historic city Lecce, next to the famous Santa Croce. A comfortable, elegant hotel with easy access to the delights of the city and to excellent shops, bars and restaurants.
Drive to the beautifully renovated Masseria Montenapoleone, set in a traditional organic country estate. Individual and slightly eccentric in style, yet very tasteful. The organic farm grows wonderful seasonal produce used in all its cooking. Guests are welcome to pick their own fruit and vegetables and attend the entertaining cookery classes available. The charming, attentive staff help to make Masseria Montenapoleone an experience like no other.
Day 13: Fly home.
