We stayed 3 nights with Tiziana and her family. The rooms are very comfortable. Tiziana has good English and was really helpful in booking nearby restaurants for us. It was spotlessly clean and we enjoyed the homemade produce for breakfast. P
My family and I have just returned from a fantastic week in Puglia. We stayed at the Agriturismo Masseria Casa Busciana and were (discretely) pampered by Maria, Tiziana, Giovanni and Antonio. Apart from the fresh and genuine breakfast, the spotless rooms and common areas, and the unrivalled hospitality, we had the opportunity to watch Maria bake bread, to see the cows being milked, and to give a hand to Viviana, one of the farm's cows, who gave birth to a healthy heifer, or female calf. Every moment we spent on the farm, which has a splendid location, and all the advantages mentioned by other guests, was a gift. I would go back any day.
Masserias are traditional (formerly fortified) farms of the Puglia region in southern Italy. This one, which is part of the Agriturismo group, is still dedicated to the production of milk. It is strategically, almost equidistantilly located (about 7 to 10 kilometres), from Alberobello (famous for its Trulli buildings) to the SW and Monopoli and Polignano a Mare, beautiful coastal towns on the Adriatic. The rooms are very comfortable and super clean and the hospitality just wonderful! Breakfasts are delicious. This masseria is a perfect base forr the exploration of this area of Puglia.
Situated between Alberobello (approximately 7km) and Monopoli its an ideal place to spend quiet, stress free holidays in an Italian farm. Run by a farmers family the accomodation is a well renovated old stone farm house. The rooms are spacious, clean and well decorated. The breakfast is prepared by local ingredients and is always fresh and well prepared. The most important aspect is the warm hospitality of the family. Always smiley and attentive we never faced a single problem in our two days holidays. If in Puglia again we definetely revisit it. Try it!
Upon arrival we were warmly greeted, toured the stone lodging and given a choice of available rooms. Managed by a lovely mother and daughter team who always took time to ensure we were completely comfortable and happy. The room was very quiet and large with extra storage and a sleep worthy king bed. The bath was large with a heated towel rack and modern fixtures. Breakfast, served in what was the original home built in 1742, was more plentiful and delicious than what we expected and all of the breads, pastries, jams, yogurts are made by mother and daughter in a stone oven. Local cherries and custom made coffee were included. Casa Busciana is also a great location to bicycle from. I bicycled several routes through the local countryside - once rode to Fasano and back. If you are inclined to bicycle, but prefer to rent, contact Southern Visions who can deliver a well equipped bicycle to the Casa and pick it up at the end of your stay.…
