This exotic-looking 15th-century masseria, now a five-star hotel, is an idyllic retreat. The pièce-de-resistance is the vast sea-water lagoon-pool – an oasis of sparkling water, rocks and palm trees. San Domenico also benefits from an excellent wellness centre specialising in Thalassotherapy (using sea-water) and beauty treatments with products made from the estate’s own olive oil (in which you can be basted, wrapped and lightly poached on a warm-water bed).
