About the Owner

We moved here from England in 2006 fully restoring our 17th century farmhouse, building a large pool & modern villa.

An orchard was planted to provide us with a large variety of fresh fruits. Almonds, citrus, cherries, figs, plums, pomegranates & prickly pears. Made into homemade preserves etc. The gardens are always being extended.

In 2013 an outdoor pizza oven.

We enjoy sharing our knowledge of this beautiful area with guests over an amazing breakfast or during a visit to one of the many year round festivals.

To help you enjoy your holiday to the full we are able to offer information on all kinds of activities. For a lot more information including our life in Puglia article and the story of our first Olive harvest and oil production in Italia Magazine. Visit our website with

Beautiful farm in a lovely part of Italy

  • 5 of 5

Never having been to this part of Italy before it was wonderful to have the advice and suggestions of Douglas and Elizabeth. They knew what was on at the surrounding towns and villages and what historic sites were a must see. The Garden Apartment was well equipped and beautifully fitted out, and the swimming pool and gardens were a delight. I would thoroughly recommend Masseria Due Torre

We are so pleased we decided to stay in Masseria Due Torri for two weeks instead of moving to different places, we found the masseria was so well runned and a relaxing place to stay.

Not only the rooms but the whole masseria is being looked after and constantly upgraded to make your stay confortable.

Douglas and Elizabeth are there every morning to help you plan your day around Puglia, or they are very happy to have you spend the day around the lovely swimming pool or the many cozy and almost private terraces to have lunch or read.

We hope to go back and rent the garden apartment, just to enjoy cooking with the lovely fresh produce you find in the local markets.

From the Owner

We came across this beautiful unspoilt area of Puglia while on holiday in November 2002. Returning at times throughout the year to explore fully. Finding that the Monopoli countryside had so much to offer. The location was very important to us as we like a countryside setting, stunning views of the land and sea, beautiful local beaches and towns. Here we have found all these things, lovely green countryside with anceint olive trees, beautiful gently sloping farm land with trees, wild flowers and wildlife all year round. We are within easy reach of many local towns, several airports, excellent train services from Monopoli and above all an all year round destination with plenty to do.
