White & gleaming,Masseria Bagnara is an architecturally stunning luxury hotel in Lizzano in Puglia, with unique character and charm& a fabulous spa. A place to totally relax and a favourite of Long Travel clients.

Less than 1km from the Ionian Sea and about 7km from Lizzano, the boutique Masseria Bagnara is special. Sitting imposingly in a flat landscape, the traditional whitewashed masseria gleams. The long oleander-lined driveway takes the eye to one thing and one thing only – the striking fortified farmhouse of the luxurious Masseria Bagnara, at the end. Yet, with its secrets hidden behind the façade, Long Travel guests have only an inkling of what awaits. Once you go inside and are within its protected fortified courtyard, you will never want, nor need to leave this luxurious hotel.

Part of a farm of 80 hectares, the owner and the Manager, has joined forces and together, they have created something luxurious, romantic, relaxing and exclusive. These guys have style; and so does the boutique Masseria Bagnara. A stunning traditional building has been blended perfectly with sleek, contemporary lines. The architectural use of prickly pears in pots against whiter than white walls, large white umbrellas, effective lighting so that white is always white, even at night are just spectacular in their effects at the Masseria Bagnara in Lizzano. The rooms are designer and luxurious. The long, thin pool, on an elevated walled terrace, with a tiny glimpse of the sea, is sublime and relaxing at the spa is simply amazing.

Dinner is an “event” with fine dining and “slow food” where the service is discreet. Most often served under Masseria Bagnara’s candle-lit arched terraces, spilling into the courtyard, it is romantic and enchanting. The creative chef uses high quality, fresh and seasonal ingredients to create masterpieces on a plate. More than likely, you will have been looking forward to dinner all day, as you will see the menu at breakfast, which is also a meal to linger over. If you are really lucky, the owners son, will be there to advise you about wine. Ask to see his treasured wine cellar, in the trullo grounds, but don’t move once inside… He has some very precious and expensive wines and one bottle in particular, which could buy you a house in Puglia!

Nothing happens quickly at Masseria Bagnara. You need to sink into its relaxed, rather sophisticated ambience and let your cares drift away. Indeed, the atmosphere and the staff in their white uniforms, who saunter around quietly, slowly and discreetly remind us here at Long Travel,of some particularly laid-back and exclusive islands in the Indian Ocean, with a similar air of calm and tranquillity.

A perfect oasis from the hurly-burly of life! Masseria Bagnara is a place to escape to.
