This is a beautiful property have 6 rooms spacious and surrounded by trees. The villa is well appointed and far far away from the hustle bustle. The market place is about 2 miles down once you hit the main road. The bathrooms need some repairs, the fixtures are old. The shower cubicles in some rooms are really small. We were a group of 12 and stayed for 4 days this Oct. Its a very private Villa no interference from the owners and the ambience is very scenic. Few pointers-- You can easily miss the turn on the road that leads up to the villa so be careful when driving to the villa. The villa comes with basic groceries so plan well buy your groceries before you reach else you will be running down to the supermarket next morning. Idle for families, and for people who need to wind down. Good eating places around 35 kms. radius. You will be on your own, housekeeping services come with a price.

From the moment we drove down the long driveway to the villa, we were swept away into the magic of this region. From the trullo-roofed rooms to the warm Italian hospitality, our experience was idyllic. We traveled with four families and the grounds were perfect for the kids and the adults. From the trellis'd pergola patio to the extra large pool we spent hours outside taking in the Italian sun. I want to specifically mention Lucia and her team. Lucia was so hospitable and made us all feel like we were a part of her extended Italian family! She helped us organize excursions and had great dining recommendations! Her staff were all warm and diligent. We got to experience the people, the culture, and the food all while staying in the quintessential Italian villa (albeit luxurious). It was an experience out of a movie....

This is a beautiful property in a quiet rural setting. We were there in October. The room was great. The manager was very helpful with restaurant recommendations. The breakfast unfortunately was not great. Should have been better considering the cost.

You don't go back 4 times unless it's very, very good, do you? We spent another week here in August 2012. Antonia and Ali continue to work hard to make Masseria Beneficio one of the ultimate luxury destinations in Puglia. The accomodation, gardens and especially the pool are of the highest standard. Combined with the quiet relatively isolated location in olive groves, the small size and personal feel of the place deliver a great holiday. We have grown to love the local town of Ceglie Messapica which has a beautiful old town, some good restaurants and above all a great atmosphere. It is not on the tourist trail but is close to Ostuni, Martina Franca and other places which are. An enjoyable evening spent in Ceglie will be mainly with locals, not tourists.

When we booked our stay at Masseria Beneficio, it was at the last minute and on the recommendation of only two Trip Adviser reviews. We were so surprised when we reached the gates of the masseria and saw the breathtaking entrance and buildings of this fabulous place. We were greeted by the owner. Tonia, who showed us to our room - we never expected such a large, luxorious space and were completely delighted. The room had a vaulted stone ceiling and stone walls, beautiful furniture and furnishings of the highest quality and style, and soothing, soft lighting. It was also immaculately clean. The bathroom was the best of what we love about Italian bathrooms, with the highest quality fixtures, tiles and plush towels.We were even treated to a bowl of fresh fruit and a bottle of water upon arrival. There is a beautiful swimming pool on the property with lounge chairs, etc, in a tranquil setting. Unfortunately, my husband and I , suffering from severe jetlag, had left a bag at the Bari airport. Tonia told us about this as soon as we arrived and had already tried to get them to deliver the bag to us. We had to go and get it, but she made several calls in Italian for us to assure us that the bag would be there when we arrived to pick it up the next day. We found the property to be in a great location for seeing both the southern tip of the Salento and the Alborobella and Bari area. It is set in a huge grove of olive trees and surrounded by olive farms. The small towns nearby were delightful and we loved our drive back through the estates. Oh, and the breakfast was great, with a wide selection of pastries, breads, cereals, and even the offer of eggs and bacon cooked to order by Tonia's husband. Masseria Beneficio was great and we hope to return. We highly recommend it without reservation to anyone wanting to tour this area of Puglia.
