The original architectural structure of the Torre Maizza farm is at the centre of a large hillside estate overlooking the Mediterranean, and just 1.5 kilometres from the coast. Guests will find the farm set in a grove of age-old olive trees and can enjoy strolls through our orchards, vineyards and fields of other crops, where the air is scented with heady myrtle and delicate jasmine, mingling to create our estate's typical Mediterranean fragrance.
Torre Maizza is an ancient garrison, part of a defence line that crossed all of Apulia, from the Gargano promontory to 'finibus terrae' as Santa Maria di Leuca was called. During the sixteenth century it served as a watchtower against the raids of Ottoman and Saracen Turks, and has now been converted into a refined, luxury 5 star resort. Local traditional hospitality, once extended to pilgrims and Benedictine monks, is now offered to our guests: an intense experience in a discreetly-scented land of ancient customs.
Classic Superior Rooms
Under the cathedral vault ceiling, in typical white tufa dwellings, guests will experience the pleasure of life on a historic farm. Glimpses of the Mediterranean from the window, framed by the colours of the olive grove and the grassy scent of the green golf course are the scenario to be enjoyed from each small terrace. All rooms have en suite bathrooms with tubs, two armchairs so guests can enjoy breakfast in their rooms, and feature typical farmhouse furnishings, hand-painted in the traditional style. The Superior guestrooms are larger that the classic rooms and located in an enhanced position.

The junior suites feature white tufa stone blocks, a characteristic of the farm dwellings, and include comfortable, elegant armchairs under the cathedral vault ceilings, as well as relaxing whirlpool tubs, and a small terrace with loungers, for guests who choose to take some Apulian sun.
