Renovating the floors of a Mediterranean-style hotel - 1

The interiors of Masseria Borgo Ritella in Fasano, conceived by interior designer Pino Brescia, have a contemporary feel. The materials and colours echo those of the local area, reinterpreting natural stone

Between the hills and sea, nestled among ancient olive trees, colourful bougainvillea and fragrant citrus groves, the exclusive Masseria Borgo Ritella in Fasano is harmoniously integrated into the Apulian landscape.
The renovation project was entrusted to interior designer Pino Brescia, renowned for designing other important resorts in the area. He has created a delightful hotel with a gorgeous swimming pool, surrounded by monumental olive trees and prickly pears.

A luxurious hospitality venue characterised by Mediterranean charm infused with contemporary, designer touches, tailored for a totally relaxing stay in a secluded setting.The elegant and spacious rooms, which are divided into different types – Luxury Suite, Family Suite, Superior Double and Deluxe Double – are equipped with every amenity, down to the smallest detail, with white lacquered and natural wood furnishings, modern and vintage elements that harmoniously blend together in this testament to Apulian architecture.

The predominant colours in the rooms are white and beige, highlighted by the Carácter Mix Beige stone-effect porcelain stoneware collection with the inclusion of pebbles on the surface, laid here in the 60x120 cm size, on the bedroom floors, as coverings in the bathrooms and also for several walls and kitchen tops in the Deluxe rooms. A sustainable, eco-friendly collection made of 40% recycled material and two Premium technologies: Puro Marazzi Antibacterial, which eliminates up to 99.9% of bacteria, and StepWise, which makes surfaces anti-slip and easy to clean.

“I chose Marazzi’s Carácter because the latest-generation stoneware is on a par with other high-quality, premium materials. They are very interesting to use and offer many possibilities thanks to their slimline, lightweight design, technical properties and high quality,” remarks Pino Brescia.
