I recently had the pleasure of staying a week in Puglia at the Masseria Montenapoleone. Although not easy to find, it is worth the hunt since it is a hidden treasure.
The beauty of the place lies in its location facing the Adriatic and its extensive gardens filed with flowers and fruit trees. There is a place to relax in every part of the property and you feel like you are the only guest staying there. The breakfast buffet is sumptuous with homemade jams, cakes plus ham, cheeses, fresh fruit salad and eggs if you order them. The service is friendly and accommodating; thanks to Doriana, a treasure and Julianno, the son of the owners who both made our stay magical.
Our suite, "Granaio," was gorgeous with comfy beds, a beautiful bathroom and lovely furnishings. The beauty is in the small details and the owners have mastered that; every nook has something whimsical or charming to look at. The only improvement I would recommend would be better light for reading in the suite.
I hope to return one day and bring my whole family.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Masseria Montenapoleone is located in Puglia, in southern Italy somewhere between magic and forgotten. The region is rich in history and culture, yet has remained remarkably untouched by mass tourism, and therefore retains a charm seldom found in these well-travelled parts of Europe. The Masseria, was refurbished and renovated not to stand out, but rather to be part of the nature around it. Some of the rooms are even original caves and dwellings of the first settlers in the area hundreds of years ago. Each room, corner and secret area has been redesigned or embellished to encompass the natural beauty, which it already possesses. When you open the door of one of the suites, you are carried away to a world of serenity and unique rustic beauty. Each suite has been designed differently with revived artifacts, which are both a journey into imagination, and a memory of a time gone. An endemic nostalgia transports you to a time that you now belong to, all the while surrounded by all the modern amenities you need. Be nature's guest. ... more less
