Pros: Exterior view of building and landscape.
Cons: Show the room that the customer is anticipated! Do not not give us a bait and switch scenario.
We anticipated to stay at a Trulli room with the cone type roof as shown in your brochure. Not so! We received a mediocre regular room that took 3 hours to heat, had a shower that leaked to the bathroom and needed two towels to wipe the flood each and every day. I give the facility a 4 out of 10. Would not recommended and would not return. Norbert Fischer

The bestPosted May 23, 2014
Pros: Everything - the location, my room, the helpful staff and the peace.
Cons: While I was there it was a little cold and the hot water could have been hotter and my bed was hard....but these are minor issues.
Location: In the middle of the Vall d'Itria, so Locorontondo (a Unesco world heritage site - not to be missed), Ostuni and Cisternino within half an hour.
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.
