About Pettolecchia Collection La Piccola

A fully-staffed, seafront luxury villa with heated pool and private access to the exclusive beach club, Pettolecchia Il Lido.

Pettolecchia La Piccola is ideal for travellers who wish to experience Puglia at its most authentic but also treasure peace and quiet, luxury and excellent service.

Entirely surrounded by five hectares of sublime green gardens and privacy, the Masseria accommodates (up to) six guests in its three double suites with ensuite baths. Each suite has access to a private patio overlooking the gardens and the sea. Interiors feature contemporary minimalist furniture, hidden wardrobes, a sleek kitchen and dining area, and special lighting installations to create a warm ambience. The spacious, sea-facing outdoor patio is elegantly furnished with lounge chairs and a dining table and is equipped with a wood-fired pizza oven. The heated outdoor swimming pool is fully equipped with cushioned sunbeds, umbrellas and an outdoor bar where snacks and drinks can be served. Guests can also enjoy complimentary bicycles and request private yoga and Pilates lessons.

Behind The Brand

Your best advice for honeymoon/vacation planning?

To book our masserias, we’d recommend planning this early as we are often fully booked one year ahead of time. Our villas are available to rent exclusively as a whole property and for an entire week. That is the ideal and ultimate formula to fully experience Puglia, our people, our land, and our hospitality approach at Pettolecchia Collection. Once you’re here, leave all the rest behind you and we’ll take care of everything.


What can couples expect to see and experience when staying at La Piccola?

A beautifully restored and authentic masseria experience in the most exclusive location in Puglia, supported by a professional, attentive and dedicated service team. The masseria is cosy, romantic and accommodating with all the services you’ll need for this unforgettable day, from our staff to the amenities and the location. The sea is right in front of you and is two minutes away, while hectares of lush, fertile land is at your feet…it’s a luxurious Apulian experience like no other.


What advice do you have in terms of packing for La Piccola?

Since you choose the rhythm, you decide what happens when and how you’re most comfortable. Daywear is definitely a must, as is beachwear and swimsuits in the summer. Also, pack lounge and sportswear for outdoor sports, yoga and meditation sessions.

Then, come evening, as Puglia is a really relaxed destination, the key is comfort and effortless chic. If you have more elegant nights out, we’d go with laid-back glamor. Again, always effortless and easy.


What’s the best time of year to visit?

May to October are the ideal months.


Describe a perfect day when staying at La Piccola?

The most important thing is to feel at home. You choose the rhythm of the day. In this way, every single day is perfect. Wake up in the morning to a delicious breakfast prepared by our staff, book a yoga lesson in the shade or on the grass. Then, take a dip in our open-air swimming pool or grab a bike and ride across the property to glimpse the millennia-old olive trees firsthand. Afterwards, head to our private beach club, Pettolecchia Il Lido, for sublime relaxation, swimming, sunshine and culinary experiences.

If you’re not staying for lunch, head back to the villa and let our staff wow you yet again. Come evening, you can dine al fresco on the patio, head to the nearby towns for authentic dinners, or dine at our beachside restaurant.
