Struggling A/C, but Beautiful Secluded Masseria

Posted Jun 20, 2016 on Hotels
Beautiful secluded masseria spread amongst the olive tree groves. Enormous salt water pool - but for the price, pool towells should be included! Unique masseria - beautiful rooms and interesting slopes ceilings, but if you need a strong air conditioner (which you will in July and August), sadly you won't find it anywhere in the hotel. Service was in general excellent, but the hotel restaurant just wasn't that tasty....

Lovely building but hotel like ghost town

Posted Sep 20, 2014
Pros: Big room and huge pool
Cons: More welcoming service, better shower, five star products. More reasonable prices in restaurant.
Location: Location is in middle of farmland with lots of fruit and olives. Close to beach and easy to drive to other places in Puglia such as Ostuni.
Great room but hotel is geared for weddings not guests. Like being in a ghost town and service is not five star. Restaurant is expensive. Breakfast is good. Could go made here unless you like isolation. Good if you want to be alone or out all day.

Peace and Space

Posted Jul 16, 2013 on Hotels
The hotel is situated in massive grounds with a huge pool and is very spacious. The rooms were comfortable large and clean. Breakfast was good but we did not eat other meals in the hotel because we found better value elsewhere. The staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel never feels crowded and offers a very peaceful experience. The hotel is well located for visiting the numerous stunning historic towns and the beach is less than 10 minutes drive away

Messeria Relais Del Cardinale

Posted Jul 29, 2012
Pros: The olive plantation around it, the pool, the restaurant in fact everything
Cons: Everything ....and it is not an exageration!
Location: Out of the busy tourist track, beutiful and elegant!
Exceptional value for money. Italy at its most elegant , one of the most spectacular places we ever stayed! The Masseria has a lot of character, the setting is gourgeous beyond belief, the building is beautiful and the antique furniture in all the shared spaces makes it a very special place. We are always going to keep this place in our hearts as a tranquil, elegant and beautiful place.

Bella masseria immersa in un grande uliveto

Posted Sep 13, 2016
Purtroppo week end lungo piovoso a settembre con problema anche di corrente saltata per una mezza giornata intera. Ma la struttura è molto bella, forse avrebbe bisogno di una rinfrescata ma le camere sono belle e spaziose e funziona tutto bene.

Le bellezze della Puglia di mezzo.

Posted Aug 29, 2016 on Hotels
Una settimana dedicata alla visita dei magnifici paesini e delle attrazioni presenti nell'area intervallata da piacevolissimi momenti di relax a bordo della sconfinata piscina posta in mezzo ad un uliveto secolare.
