An enchanting location just a few minutes from Otranto, surrounded by verdant olive groves and the azure Salento sea.
Baglioni Hotels & Resorts Group has taken over the running of the acclaimed Masseria Muzza, a magical historic property deep in the Salento countryside amid the Mediterranean flora, the fragrance of the olives, and the beautiful Adriatic beaches.
Situated just a few minutes from the delightful Adriatic town of Otranto and an hour from Salento airport, the Baglioni Masseria Muzza is an idyllic destination for a holiday exploring the stunning scenery of the Lecce area. From the olive groves aglow in the breathtaking sunsets to the sand dunes rising from a crystalline sea, the beauty of it all is mesmerising.
The heart of the masseria is the 17th-century building. Its rooms and suites in whitewashed limestone and exposed masonry exude an essential elegance, enhanced by the tasteful furnishings in classic Puglia style. Enveloped in leafy landscapes, the welcoming rooms vaunt a full range of comforts including private spaces like verandas, some with exquisite lake views.
“In opening a resort in Puglia, once again – after the launch of the Baglioni Resort Sardinia last year – we are offering our guests a 5-star stay deep in the heart of the natural world. The Masseria Muzza is near Otranto, close to one of the most beautiful stretches of the Salento coast. Although the pandemic, alas, is not yet over, and the travel sector is still feeling the impact, the opening of this new resort in 2022 represents a fresh wave of optimism for Baglioni Hotels & Resorts as we prepare to rise with confidence to a series of major new challenges” commented Guido Polito, Baglioni Hotels & Resorts CEO since 2011.
