A 13th-century olive press in the hotel’s bar serves as a reminder that the area has long been a centre of production of the area’s liquid gold, and no visit would be complete without tasting some of the olive oil made on the hotel estate.
Whether lounging in the sunshine beside the pool, pampering yourself in the wellness spa, or experience sand and surf at the hotel’s nearby beach club, you’ll find Masseria Torre Coccaro an oasis of sun-drenched tranquility.
