It took three years for the owners to expand this old red-stone masseria, and the results are impressive: an architect-designed, rustically themed resort-hotel. A pretty herb garden flanks the pool, metal sculptures of volpe (foxes) enliven the fields, and the site is so huge there’s an electric cart to ferry the idle. The complex sits in hilly countryside dotted with olive trees – many ancient – and the sea is visible in the far distance. Bedrooms and suites are spread across the ground and first floors of sleek new buildings, some facing the inner courtyard, some with a balcony or terrace. Beams are white, walls neutral, shutters blue; TVs are wall-mounted, showers are slick, water is solar-heated. There’s heaps to do apart from loafing about in the holistic spa and by the irresistible pool: consider tennis, bowling, volley ball, mountain biking, gym. As for the food, it’s creative Sicilian and sounds delicious, from the cherry jams and frittata at breakfast to the tagliolini with shrimps and orange at dinner. But best of all are Marco and his staff – warm, professional, engaging.
