Five-star Family Luxury on Italy’s Savelletri Coast

July 1, 2018 | Author: | Posted in Hotel

Who says that an Italian ‘family’ holiday means forfeiting the luxury and elegance of some of the more ‘grown-up’ hotels in Italy? At the Masseria Torre Coccaro, set in the idyllic Puglia countryside close to the Savelletri coast, grown-up luxury sits comfortably alongside a wonderful children’s offering of clubs, family activities and ‘child-friendly’ food.

Everyone Deserves a Touch of Luxury

If you think a family holiday means jostling for position in the buffet queue or listening to other people’s screaming children, or exhausting yourself looking for things for your little ones to do so they don’t utter those horrifying words – I’m bored – think again. While this might be the case at some hotels in Italy, at the elegant, Italian Masseria Torre Coccaro they have mastered the art of keeping everyone happy, relaxed and entertained. And the best bit is, none of it requires you to compromise on the standards you would expect from the most exclusive ‘adults-only’ resorts.

Set in a former farming estate, the hotel oozes elegant simplicity, with rooms (like the sumptuous accommodation in the hotel’s 16th-century watchtower) decorated in pared back, refined Puglian style. The great thing about the stylish, rustic décor is that creates a relaxed atmosphere for parents who don’t have to constantly worry about children breaking themselves or other things. And, of course, the extensive outdoor space is a natural playground.

Fun for ALL the Family

Both you and your children will love the enormous heated swimming pools and the pretty private beach belonging to the hotel just a short five-minute journey away. Active families will enjoy taking a leisurely bike ride around the local area or perhaps a horse ride along the beach. Youngsters and adults alike will love the hotel’s own Pugliese village fair complete with street food, live music, and local arts and crafts, or relaxing together over a pizza or seafood by the sea at the hotel’s Coccaro Beach club.

Children’s Clubs with Italian Flare

But while a family holiday is about spending time together, it can also be tempting to spend a little time apart so that you can enjoy some special time alone or with a partner. Thankfully the hotel has thought of this and offers two wonderful children’s clubs (one for infants, and another for three to 12-year-olds) so you can relax without feeling guilty, knowing your little ones are having as much fun as you are. Activities include everything from cookery classes (including pizza making), bicycle tours, games in the hotel’s playground or splashing around in the hotel’s own water park.

Adult Indulgence

And what will you do while the children are off having the time of their lives? Well, you’ll have to choose between fine dining in the hotel’s elegant Torre Maizza restaurant, relaxing in the state-of-the-art Aveda spa (built into the walls of a cave, this is an indulgent, tranquil sanctuary unlike any other) or just relaxing with a book by the pool.

There is so much for all the family to enjoy in the elegant, welcoming five-star Masseria Torre Coccaro that you’ll never want to leave the children at home while you enjoy the luxury of hotels in Italy alone again.
