Between colours, flavours and aromas of the ancient tradition.

The Masseria

Why Masseria? And how was it created?

Masseria Torrelonga, located in the heart of Puglia, is a medieval watchtower, later fortified due to frequent Turkish raids.

The Masseria, a term deriving from the Latin massa, meaning "insieme di fondi" and from the word masserizia (furniture, decor and tools for agricultural and pastoral use) is a typical rural building settlement of the 16th-17th century, which for a long time represented the most common type of agricultural-pastoral farm in Puglia.

Today the masseria’s have a life of their own and in many cases have been transformed into accommodation facilities and residences of various types.

Masseria Torrelonga presents itself as an articulated structure, equipped with a single large central body - where the 5 suites are arranged -, which is accessed by a double and large entrance courtyard, appointed as a reception and entertainment space for guests.

The name "Torrelonga" originates from having been a watchtower, therefore with a high view of the surrounding area, with fortified walls that rise and surround vast gardens and centuries-old olive groves. Inside, adjacent to the central body, Masseria Torrelonga has a small church, now not used, where in the past religious rites were celebrated for those who lived and worked on the farm.

Masseria Torrelonga is therefore located in a strategic and advantageous position: just a few kilometres from the town, it guarantees guests peace, silence and tranquillity, to gradually free themselves from daily stress and regain possession of slow and natural rhythms of life; despite this, it is equidistant from many of the most visited ancient Apulian towns: Locorotondo, Cisternino, Ostuni, Ceglie Messapica, Fasano, Monopoli, Polignano a Mare. But these most popular Apulian towns are not the only reachable destination, a few minutes by car separates you from the most enchanting beaches of the Apulian coast overlooking the Adriatic sea, from the Coastal Dunes Park and the Torre Guaceto nature reserve.

The mild climate is favourable, allowing you to visit the most well-known places at any time of the year for their peculiar characteristics: evocative and charming in winter, seductive and irresistible in summer. In the Masseria guests will be able to get recommendations from the staff on how to spend the best of their holidays, full of discoveries and adventures for the most exciting Apulian itineraries, without forgetting experiences of leisure, entertainment and food and wine.

Staying at Masseria Torrelonga means experiencing an extraordinary journey to discover our wonderful land, Puglia.

Guests are reminded that the structure is "adults only", to relax and fully enjoy the services made available, such as the swimming pool, the wellness centre and every green area of the masseria. Therefore, the structure guarantees reception only to children of the same age and / or over 15 years.
