I love getting in my rental car and driving around. Which is exactly what I did in Puglia, roaming around the roads by the coast near Salento. Suddenly, I noticed a sign in the distance that said Masseria Mongiò dell’Elefante. I was intrigued and decided to check it out. Before long, I was driving on a country road with meadows left and right. And there it was. A colourful mansion surrounded by nature. What a picturesque spot.
I got out of the car and saw a gardener. He told me that the mansion had been in the family for over 500 years. It had been completely renovated and now consists of 12 unique rooms. He went to check if there was still a room available, an offer I couldn’t refuse. On the way to the room, we passed the mouthwatering aromas of the restaurant and a spa that instantly triggered my holiday feeling.
I dropped my things at the modern hotel room and started walking in the direction of the sea. It was just 300 metres to the stunning blue sea and a jaw-dropping sunset. A true work of art. What a remarkable location; close to the sea, a relaxing atmosphere and delicious food. I was in for a treat...
