Boutique Hotels You Haven't Heard Of

Masseria Torre Coccaro

Location: Puglia, a region of southeastern Italy that's still being discovered by visitors

Andrew Harper's take: "Set in the midst of a stone-walled grove of olive and almond trees, the heart of the 39-room Masseria Torre Coccaro (view slideshow)is a 16th-century fortified farmhouse originally designed to ward off the depredations of Saracen pirates. Accommodations are decorated in a rustic-elegant style with whitewashed walls, gauzy cotton curtains, and wool carpets. No contemporary comfort is lacking: There is a spa, a beach club, and several rooms have plunge pools and Jacuzzis. I particularly recall the smell of the olive-wood logs that were supplied to make a fire one chilly June night here."

Cost: Doubles from $340
