during a trip to Puglia, I stayed for one night at Tenuta Specolizzi. In my opinion, I,ve tried not to take into account bed weather (cold in April 2012). the places not properly marked from main road - weak labeling - improved only in the entry. Far from the sea. The first impression is good - Tenuta is a large area, two swimming pools and beautifully landscaped garden. check-in organized by the owner (we did not have GPS and he led us through narrow Italian roads) was fast and friendly. Despite the cold, efficient air conditioning in the rooms quickly improved temperature. We ordered dinner consisting of local specialities - all perfect. The rooms actually modest for a place with such high qualifications (according to me, 3 stars maximum) but probably compensates for the weather during the summer. To sum up: a nice resort, modest rooms, good service, pretty good kitchen, good place for the summer but a little far from the sea.
