A unique blend of relaxation and culture in Southern Italy.
Masseria Malvindi is a magical place, full of historical suggestions that make this splendid 18 century farmhouse, perfectly restored, unique and fascinating. We are in Apulia, in the Salento region, precisely in Mesagne, just a few kilometres from splendid cities – Brindisi, Lecce, Gallipoli, Otranto, Ostuni… – with an immense artistic and cultural heritage, in an area characterised by unspoilt nature, on which lie beautiful beaches lapped by a crystalclear sea.
The silence of the countryside envelops the location making the surrounding blaze of color even more impressive, especially at sunset, when the red of the earth and the white of the stone triumph in a dramatic contrast with the vivid blue of the sky and the sea.
Malvindi, an ancient post station, is now a splendid five-star hotel – and as such unique in the area – that harks back to the Roman thermal baths found just a few steps away. A little further on, a Byzantine settlement (the temple of St Miserino) tells of pilgrims on their way to Jerusalem.
What was once the central patio now houses an immense swimming pool surrounded by 15 highly original suites extraordinarily furnished with unique pieces, the fruit of the artistic creativity of local craftsmen: fabrics, furnishings, lamps, objects, everything refers to the authenticity of the area, to an unprecedented way of experiencing and discovering it that starts from here. Malvindi is a unique location, discreet and reserved, a luxury resort perfect for enjoying moments of pure relaxation.
The day begins with a delicious breakfast of fresh products to be enjoyed in the shade of the patio: sweet and savoury cakes, biscuits (all made with flour produced by local mills), cheeses, fruit, juices and centrifuged juices with genuine flavours that will remain in your heart for a long time as an authentic symbol of this place.
All around are olive trees and vineyards, and it is these that become the natural stage for surprising guests with romantic dinners based on local ingredients skilfully selected and enhanced by chef Alberto Lenoci, therefore creating a sort of guided tour of discovery of this marvellous region.
And finally, to make the days spent at Masseria Malvindi unforgettable, you can enjoy the unmissable concerts under the stars enveloped in the magic of the Salento nights.
