"Really good facilities and very courteous staff."
Our brief to ourselves was a relaxing and comfortable holiday in an hotel offering good facilities, food and courteous staff. All these criteria were fulfilled, in particular, the magnificent outdoor swimming pools and wonderful breakfasts. Well done!

Having planned our nine day stay beforehand, the resort was ideally placed to visit a variety of fascinating locations: Alborobello, Castel del Monte, Matera and Lecce. It was disappointing that the resort had no sandy beach.
The hotel could be better signposted from the motorway. We have to say the standard of Italian driving was hair-raising at times, and we were lucky to survive when a lorry drove straight into our lane from the sliproad on the outskirts of Bari.
The Sicily by Car hire office at Bari Airport was a shambles, and it took a wait of 50 minutes to get the key. We reckon some people - several with young children - would have to wait up to three hours, such was the size of the ever-lengthening queue.
The travel itinerary worked out by Expedia featured three flights: Leeds/Bradford to Amsterdam, Amsterdam to Milan and Milan to Bari - but it all worked out very smoothly. One of our two cases arrived a day late.

Hotel is located in a magnificent location. Our room had a balcony and a spectacuoar view of the port. The hotel could use some updating, e.g., replace or shampoo the lobby carpeting. Staff was extremely friendly.

The setting of this masseria is very pleasing with a huge swimming pool.
The restaurant offers superb food, born out by the fact that local frequent the restaurant.
Above all the staff is very helpful and friendly. .

The young women who run this hotel are the kindest, most enthusiastic people you will meet. The hotel is a beautiful set of rooms in ancient Trulli, very modern, very tastefully decorated. Reservations at excellent restaurants were made for me each night. When I couldn't check in for my flight out of Bari, they called and confirmed my flight for me. I'd love to have them come and visit me.

I can hardly fault this charming, centrally located, tranquil and lovely guest house and it's well priced. It's well run and the staff are exceptionally helpful and welcoming and can speak really good English, if that's important. Nothing was too much trouble, from where to eat to finding a real estate agent. The big hotels could learn a few things from this little gem. The room was beautifully designed and felt very generous and comfortable. One very small thing, I found the bed to be hard, but the staff tried hard to improve this.
Breakfast included lovely fresh fruit, toast and all the usual continental things with delicious home-made cakes that are typical here. Dinner is ordered in the morning, but it didn't seem to cause a problem if it slipped your mind until later in the day. They pride themselves on making local dishes and always good pasta. Their house red wine is really good.
The pictures don't do this beautiful masseria justice, there are lots of places to enjoy the peace in a thoughtfully placed chair under a tree or by the inviting pool. The pool doesn't open until 23rd May (roughly) so you'll have to go to the beach if you want to swim. There was a kitchen garden, lovingly tendered, which provides for the broad selection of antipasti and a vineyard to cocoon the property was in the process of being planted while I was there. If you want to explore Puglia, this is a really good spot to be - you can easily reach the Adriatic and Ionian coast.
