Inghams Italy Advent- 9 dicembre
Tue Dec 2014
Fancy spending an alternative Christmas? What about southern Italy? You could discover the lovely and still relatively unknown region of Puglia. Italy’s ‘heel’ still maintains enchanting old traditions and preserves many culinary treasures.
If you wish to come here to celebrate Christmas we think that Hotel Masseria Torre Coccaro could offer you a wonderful experience. The Masseria is kind of country estate unique to the Puglia region. The Torre Coccaro is characterised by the tower built by the Knights of Malta to protect the land from Saracen invasions.
Take advantage of the luxurious spa and pool at this highly rated hotel and enjoy excellent food at the hotel’s restaurants. For Christmas the Torre Coccaro will also be having an exclusive festive menu. Spend the chilly evening in one of the cosy lounges next to the fireplace, relaxing in the pool room, next to the piano or in the library.
In the nearby village of Pezze di Greco you will be able to see how their famous living Nativity scene is performed, with more than 300 performing actors!
The hotel is very close to the conservation area of Alberobello, where you can visit the typical conic constructions called trulli. The stunning ‘white city’ of Ostuni is also worth a visit. We suggest you take back home at least a bottle of fragrant Puglian olive oil!
