Via delle Croci, 8 - Contrada Bicocca, Pezze di Greco - Fasano (Brindisi)
Masseria Montenapoleone is set in natural surroundings and lies on a rocky settlement in the midst of enchanting centuries-old olive trees in the countryside close to Fasano, a small town located about 8 km away. The farmhouse, a mere 5 km from the sea, is the ideal starting point for visiting the region, enjoying the beaches of Salento and the wonders of the Itria Valley.
Bari airport is approx. 80 km (55 mns drive) away and Brindisi airport approx. 40 km.
A fortified farmhouse dating back to the 1600s with traditional rooms and suites surrounded by greenery and views of the sea. Passing though reception, the room opens up into a spacious portico that contains an internal patio, once the farmhouse’s courtyard from where the owner’s dwellings and the work rooms like the granary and the olive press branched off. The rural feeling is given a simple elegance with furnishings from the past restored in a sustainable manner. Walking on the ancient paving you have the sensation of floating on decorated rugs. Exploring the hidden gardens, you will come across permanent modern art installations created using ancient rural tools.
Each one of the 20 rooms and suites at Masseria Montenapoleone is unique. The techniques and materials used to restore the decorative elements express our love of tradition fused with a desire for originality: shoe racks made from old shutters, rudimentary agricultural tools transformed into furniture, with antique stamps, wooden doors and turn-of-the-century iron beds.
All rooms have a coiffeuse – the corner in which the women of the farm used to fix their hair and make-up. Complimentary Wi-Fi connection.
Separate beds are available on request in the Family Suite, in the Superior Suites Deluxe, in the Superior Suites,in the Rustic Rooms Deluxe and in some Junior Suite and Rustic Room.
The stunning beaches of Salento are just a few kilometres from Masseria Montenapoleone. Towards the north you will find the beaches of Capitolo and Savelletri, while to the south you will come across Torre dell’Orso, San Foca, Otranto and Baia dei Turchi. Guests who are prepared to venture a bit further afield will not regret it once they reach the Maldives of Salento or, continuing along the Ionian coast, the beaches of Gallipoli, Porto Selvaggio, Porto Cesareo and Punta Prosciutto.
“La Stalla”, the former stables, is an oasis in which you can enjoy a traditional Pugliese breakfast of cakes, fruit and home-made jams with cold cuts and local cheeses. “La Falegnameria” (open seasonally) is where guests can discover the authentic flavours of the products grown in our own organic gardens. The dishes we serve are an expression of our desire to tell the story of the red earth of Puglia through unique food pairings. When the weather is mild, guests can enjoy lunch and dinner at the poolside, enjoying the sparkling reflections in its crystal surface – a moment of unmissable conviviality.
