Fuga dalla Città con Rocco Forte Hotels

Turning towards Italy’s sun-drenched south, to our seafront retreats and countryside escapes. To rolling hills and olive groves, endless stretches of sand and sweeping sea views. To a sweet, slower pace of life.

First to Italy’s Adriatic Coast and Puglia – home to ancient farmland, whitewashed villages and Masseria Torre Maizza, our 16th-century farmhouse turned intimate resort. A land of orange and lemon trees, white-sand seasides and Mediterranean sunsets. Distinct Apulian flavours and the freshest local ingredients. Peace, space and extraordinary food.

Further south to Sicily, the meeting place of myriad cultures: Phoenician to Norman, Arab to Byzantine. An island of natural and manmade marvels: salt pans, holms, gorges and volcanoes; ancient Greek temples, amphitheatres and Roman mosaics. Of bustling cities: markets, architecture and the arts. And of Verdura Resort, its hundreds of hectares of coastline, countryside, spa and golf, and Villa Igiea, our art nouveau palazzo between Palermo, Mount Pellegrino and the Tyrrhenian Sea.


La Gioia
della Pasqua

One of the foremost family holidays in the country’s calendar, Easter – or Pasqua – is celebrated in style across our Italian hotels.

In Puglia, as spring flowers in bloom brighten the countryside, Masseria Torre Maizza will offer a full Apulian Easter itinerary: festive activities from Easter egg decorating and hunts to workshops with local artisans, plus special celebratory meals at Easter Sunday lunch, an Apulian style Pasquetta (Easter Monday) brunch and festive dinners throughout Easter weekend.

South to Sicily’s Verdura Resort, warmer weather starts a summer of outdoor living, with football, tennis and golf academies, tournaments, pony rides, live music and al fresco dining. Easter weekend will feature themed games and classes, egg hunts and decorating, Easter mass and brunch, and, on Easter Monday, a barbecue and family games at Pasquetta Park. What better ways to mark this beloved break and see in the summer season?
