We stayed here whilst on a cycling holiday, what an absolute gem! Hidden down a long track away from the road amongst olive trees, this is a beautiful old fortified farmhouse with courtyard and a wonderful large very clean swimming pool. It’s rural, away from the town so is a lovely peaceful, secluded location.
We received a lovely warm welcome and drink of orange juice which we were very grateful for after a days cycling in the sun. The room was spacious with lovely little sample toiletries they make from their own olive oil.
The service was excellent, the staff could not have been more lovely! And the food was delicious and beautifully presented. A beautiful place to stay, thank you for looking after us so well.

This was our first visit to Masseria Bosco and we loved it.

Excellent rooms and the owner and staff could not have been more welcoming or efficient. Beautiful situation with a fantastic swimming pool, which was so clean.

We have travelled widely and we can honestly say that this is one of the best of hotels we have stayed in. We would definitely recommend it.

Their chef was amazing and his pasta "to die for".

We hope to return sooner rather than later!

What a find this was!
An old fortified farmhouse - Masseria - in secluded location amongst thousands of olive trees. Peace and Quiet. What bliss!
The extremely warm friendly welcome and welcoming drink (we had coffee!) made us feel relaxed as soon as we arrived.
Our room in the main part of the hotel (Bosco) (Strazzati is the second part of the establishment and is further 800 metres down the track) was very large. High ceiling, very large bed, sitting area, good sized bathroom and shower.
The buildings themselves just ouze character and charm, the courtyard leads to a superb outdoor pool (not heated) and refreshment area. The surrounding olive trees have roads through them which you can walk through too.
The hotels location is good for exploring the very pretty coastline and towns. There is also a nature reserve nearby where you can see flamingoes.
The food at the hotel is very very good. Breakfasts are buffet style with good choice of food. Evening meal (we were on half board0 gave a choice of fish or meat course. All was cooked and presented to high standard. There is also an al a carte menu. The wine was local - very good - and very reasonably priced too!
The staff were superb. Warm and friendly and ready to have a talk / joke with you but quick to retire if you wanted to left alone. I do not eat fish - so one waiter named me 'one no fish!' for the duration of our stay. Super chap.
The owner of the hotel also runs the Olive oil production plus winery - very busy lady. She is a wonderful knowledgeable person who is happy to tell you about the olive growing process / oil production (bathroom items are produced on site).
In short a great place to relax, unwind and enjoy!

We would love to return.

Me, my husband and two sons had the most relaxing week at the Masseria in August. The service, from the moment we arrived, was wonderful. All the staff there were so nice and always very helpful. The food and wine were fabulous and the chef, as well as being a great cook, makes the best birthday cakes. The rooms are spacious and the pool is lovely. My children especially loved playing with the three soppy dalmatian dogs everyday. Definitely coming back next year.

We recently stayed for the fourth time in four years. We love it here. It is the perfect place to chill by the pool in a kind of true peace that is beautiful to experience. Apart from the odd fighter jet racing overhead (1 per day at most) the atmosphere is bliss with a wonderful blend of sights, scents and sounds that only exist in a masseria growing a huge range of vegetables, with thousands of olive trees and a huge vineyard. The staff know us well and perfectly judge the level of attention we need, which is normally not much, but when we need to send an email, print something or make an unusual request (we have 3 kids in our two family holiday group), they always come up trumps and find the solution. Avetrana is not the most exciting town in the world but this is a beautiful part of Italy. Dinner ranges from very good to excellent. The anti pasta is a constant surprise but always lovely. The generous portions of largely home grown produce go well with the variety of reasonably priced wine, also made on the premises. Considering the kitchen seems to be a one man operation it is nothing short of astonishing the quality and quantity that is on offer. Here is a sample of a 4 course menu, although the descriptions are my own notes taken during the meal rather than verbatim from the menu and don't do any of it justice, but the simple flavours always shine through:
1 Antipasta: a plate containing (a) deep fried sausage balls in bread crumbs, (b) marinated anchovy on toast with rocket and (c) garlic mushrooms & tomato mixture reminiscent of a la grecq, excuse the spelling if wrong.
2 seafood pasta (short twisty shape) or tagliatelle with mushrooms
3 amberjack steaks or baked meat and potato
4 panna cotta or tiramisu or ice cream or lemon sorbet
My favourite part of the day is pre-dinner cold beer and Aperol Spritz and friendly chat with other guests and barman Stefano, who even cut a CD of local music for us to take home. I left it in the hire car by mistake! The kids love it here too. There are bikes to hire and a guided tour of the olive oil factory and winery is worth doing. It makes you realise the size of the business. The Masseria itself does not have a large number of rooms and that makes it feel intimate and special. The pool is lovely and clean, great for adults and kids alike. The service is generally excellent from all the staff who are friendly, knowledgeable and kind.

We stayed at Masseria Bosco in the first week of September. We had seen other reviews and had done a little research, but everything exceeded our expectations. We stayed at Strazzati, a converted convent - the room was beautiful and breakfast was delivered to a table outside our room (in the cloisters) every morning.
Without exception, all the staff were brilliant - nothing was too much trouble and they were always ready to help.
The food was first class throughout our stay - we stayed for 10 days and never got tired of the menu.
Lunch and dinner were served at Bosco, a short walk away through olive groves and fig trees. There was plenty to see and do locally, and the hotel has an arrangement with a nearby lido, so we spent a day on the beach.
Due to a problem with my back, we had to extend our stay unexpectedly. Lucia and her team arranged for a local doctor to come at 8am on a Saturday morning, and then they made sure that I was very well looked after for the rest of our stay, with room service meals when i couldn't get up, and a room at Bosco so that we were closer to the restaurant.

Set amongst olive groves and vines, this is a friendly welcoming place with great staff and the wife of the owner on site pretty much all the time. The room we had was really special with great vaulted stone ceilings lots of room and good facilities. The masseria seems typical of the area, with a surrounding wall and a two storey tower and lots of buildings inside which are now bedrooms dining and sitting areas. The family that owns the masseria also produce their own olive oil and wine, both of which are of high quality. The red wine is also very powerful, especially the "Nonno" at 17 percent!. The estate has lots of walks, and you can see the trees which produce the olives which when harvested are made into high quality olive oil at the processing plant near the entrance to the estate. The location gives you access to the sea on the east coast and also to the gulf of Taranto. Lecce is close by and Gallipoli, a charming port, is even closer. Don't miss the fishing boats selling their catch on the quayside at about 6 pm most evenings. The main downside was that the swimming pool was not open for the whole week we were there, and it was sunny most days.

On our 4th of 7 nights our cycling group stayed here . It was an unpleasant surprise that we discovered our rooms were not in Bosco but, in fact, almost a km down the dirt road . Granted the rooms were spacious and comfortable , but after cycling all day you don't feel like walking a mile to and from the main building, pool , restaurant and bar !! We should have been informed ! Olive oil tasting was fantastic ; the best I've ever tasted . But , sadly, 3 of our group of 16 got sick from the same pasta dish ( frutti de mare) . How terrible especially when you must cycle 70 km the following day .
Perhaps a stay in the main Bosco building would have been more special , but we didn't experience it .

Stayed here for a week in June. Lovely welcoming helpful friendly staff many of whom speak very good English. Beautiful large en suite bedroom with mini bar, air conditioning, quality bed linen and towels. TV reception was a bit hit and miss but why would you need tv staying here. Wi fi fine. Beautiful swimming pool and terrace area for a pre dinner drink. Food excellent with good choices of local dishes. Excellent local beaches which the staff will book for you to reserve sun beds and a parasol at discounted prices which are a must given the beautiful hot sunny weather.
Secluded location in the middle of thousands of olive trees but only a couple of miles from Avetrana. Highly recommended

Stayed for 4 days with our 2 young teenagers after a week in a Trulli further north in Puglia. This definitely is a 4 star hotel. Beautiful large bedrooms with quality linen and towels. All the bathroom toiletries, mini bar that you need. The pool and restaurant is in the main building less than 1 km along the dirt track through the olive groves. The infinity pool is large and wasn't crowded at all. Waiter service is available at poolside or in the comfy sofa area in the shade. Breakfast was outside our room.

The half broad option enable us to taste some of the local dishes. All made with quality ingredients. We struggled to eat all 4 courses, so often shared a starter. The cheese starter was big enough for 4! The restaurant were very accommodating and cooked simple pasta dishes for our fussy kids and allowed us to mix and match a little with the a la carte menu, so that everyone had something they liked. All the fish as beautifully cooked. They even made Tiramisu speciality after requested my husband. We enjoyed the luxury from the friendly and helpful staff. Definitely visit the crystal clear waters at Punto Proscuttio beach..absolutely stunning. The hotel will lend you an umbrella. We bought panini and cold pizza from a small bakery in the way for a few euros.
