Situated among olive groves in the Apulian countryside, this southern Italian guesthouse looks like a stunning blank slate for numerous, showy Instagram pics staged for everyone back home. The 17th-century Italian manor Maseria Alchimia went the Richard Meier route with an all-white exterior, transformed by Swiss hoteliers into a "design hotel" accented with a collection of contemporary art and modern furniture strewn about the ten studios (see if you can spot the Tom Dixon and Hans Wegner pieces). The relatively remote location in the heel of Italy's boot suggests guests should splurge for a longer, more relaxed stay, and since it's accommodation only, the small, tiled kitchenettes that give the rentals a more homey feeling will definitely come in handy.
