Our entire wedding party stayed at the hotel early September this year 2018. We had a welcome dinner the night before which was beautiful and a pool day and lunch the day after. Valentina was fantastic - she was extremely professional, friendly, helpful and made our stay a dream. The only negative is that our family room’s bathroom plumbing smelt bad and a couple of guests said the same about their rooms. Thank you, we’ll definitely be back!
We had a nice, big room, like a suite, the gardens are peaceful, the restaurant is traditional, but experiments a little with the recepies, the waiter spoke very good English and was extremely helpful, as was the rest of the staff. The breakfast was much more interesting than most we had on our trip.
I had a nice stay of around 10 days. The location is not near the sea but it is strategic if you want to visit both coasts. The garden is beautiful.
ROOM: I moved from the small ones (outside the masseria) to a bigger one inside which was slightly more expensive but much better. Room was then comfortable and quiet.
SERVICE: nice and professional at reception, the owner lady looked very nice and gave great advises. At the restaurant the service was ok. I noticed that cleaning ladies and lifeguard didn't say hi to customers. The pool is a nice plus.
BREAKFAST: I enjoyed a lot the local pastries like the "pasticciotto" and home made biscuits. I din't like the fruit presentation as all the fruits where placed together and not always re filled. There were no salty foods except for some omelette
RATE PRICE/QUALITY: fair
This Masseria (farm) is located easy driving distance to the town but not within walking distance to anything. The property lay out is great. The pool is very large. It is bad need to some vegetation pre-emergent treatment and new gravel. The staff is friendly and helpful with a bit of English spoken. The room is a decent size. The shower is tiny. The mosquitos are prevalent. The airconditioning is good. The breakfast is good.
The overall impression of the property is excellent. You can actually feel that there is a lot of history in this place. We booked a superior room in the masseria and all I can say is that it is a 5 star accommodation. Nice room, quit in the evening (as it is in the middle of nowhere), perfect for a family holiday. Passing by a beautiful garden you reach the pool area, where you can see why the masseria has only 3 stars. No bar, or any kind of service around the pool, just some machines where you can get water, juice, ice cream and coffee. But the worst place in the masseria is the breakfast area. Someone (and he should be handed for that) added some ugly rooms by the old building that represent the kitchen and is something that you see while you have breakfast in the garden. I also have remarks on the quality of the food that is served for breakfast.
I have to say that we really enjoyed our stay in the masseria and we are very grateful to everyone working there for the hospitality and the help they offered.
