Masseria Tenuti Potenti - Tenuta Potenti, in Puglia, Italy
— Chiara: “Masseria Tenuta Potenti is more than just a place to spend your holiday. It is a way to escape from stressful daily life, meet nature and recalibrate your senses.”
Interview By:

— In a nutshell, how would you describe Tenuta Potenti?

Chiara: “The Masseria is housed in a sixteenth century building and is immersed in nature between the blue sea and the open horizon in Puglia, Italy. It is the perfect holiday hideaway where body and soul can regenerate.

The building is flanked by the original outhouses that have been converted into simple, but chic guest accommodations. The whitewashed walls of the old farmhouse reflect the incredible light of southern Italy and compliment the stark Mediterranean landscape.

The 18 hotel rooms and apartments each have their own fireplace and private patio overlooking the lush gardens full of flowers and fruit trees and the swimming pool.

We serve home-made food and freshly baked breads and cakes, treating our guests to the best of Italian traditional cuisine in a friendly and informal environment.”

— What was your motivation to open Tenuta Potenti?

Chiara: “My parents grew up in Puglia, met each other and got married there. After a while they moved to Milan for work and although they were both happy there, they were looking for a place to reconnect to their beloved home region during their holidays. 

They looked for a special place, ideally a masseria, with its own story and retaining its original features. After a long search they finally found this place and refurbished it.”

— Please tell us a bit about the architecture and the interior design.

Chiara: “My mum has very good taste in interiors. She decided to respect the local style and traditions and puts flowers and dried herbs everywhere around in the Masseria. She also likes to re-use old furniture, hand-painted tiles, our family’s ceramic and other bits she gets in various antique markets.”

— Please tell us a bit about the food at the Masseria.

Chiara: “All food at Tenuta Potenti is homemade and fresh. We harvest the vegetables in the morning and prepare them the very same day. Every morning we create a menu of our own products and fresh fish, as well as the wines from our vineyards.

For us the secret is not only the freshness of the products, but the love for the kitchen and the respect for the old recipes of our tradition.”

— Please tell us a bit about the activities at Tenuta Potenti.

Chiara: “Hotel guests are welcome to take part in our Mediterranean cooking classes, making homemade bread, taralli, friselle and orecchiette using seasonal vegetables from our gardens.

We also organise monthly yoga retreats and offer Ayurveda massages. My mom also loves to show our guests the hidden places of Puglia – the most beautiful beaches and the best places to get to know the real Puglian countryside and culture.”
