"Masseria Cimino is a melange of the Mediterranean – white-washed walls, a theatrical set of olive groves and the blue yonder of the Adriatic," say White Line Hotels. Avenue Hotel welcomes the new member of the innovative network.
“The vibe is relaxed rather than formal. It is family owned + run, just the way we like ‘em,” say our friends at White Line Hotels about Masseria Cimino, the most recent member of our rather selective network.
“Distinctly Italian sitting at the Adriatic heel of Puglia, this is a firm favourite with those looking to escape, set amongst the olive groves and the natural scene.”
We feel that White Line Hotels have come up with yet another winner and welcome Masseria Cimino to the family.
