Magnificent villa with all the comforts. Wonderful design, all extremely comfortable and clean. The kitchen has everything you need. Two bathrooms are large. On the terrace big white rustic table and sun chairs. Two swimming pools - the perfect solution on a hot day! Very convenient location of the villa, surrounded by olive groves, near the sea. There are shops to buy food. The owner Maurizio is very welcoming and helped us in a difficult situation with a sick child. Good place according the well price.

“Can we stay forever?”
Reviewed June 5, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

person found this review helpful

No words can describe just how amazing Masseria Pepenofio is! Before booking I was slightly concerned about the accommodation as I could only find two reviews online (both seemingly from the same stay - friends) and found it hard to find a lot of information on the area where the villa was located. I'm so glad that we took a chance and booked - as this truly is one of the most beautiful places we have ever stayed. Upon arrival we were told to met the owner near the motorway so that he could drive us to the Masseria, I found this quite odd (as it hadn't really been explained to us properly if we were meeting where the villa was or if it was just a meeting place) but we soon realised why they do this. The Masseria is located in a remote, off the beaten track location and there is no way you would find your way there without following the owner. We were apprehensive of exactly what we were arriving to as we drove through the hills and past run down old properties when we arrived to the paradise that is Fico d'India! It surpassed our expectations by so much. We were told that the refurbishment of the property was only completed last year. The garden has grown so much since the photos on the website and Hello Apulia were taken. We stayed for 7 nights and it was incredible. Everything about the way the property has been renovated was beautiful - the style of the furniture and the quality of the fit out (bathrooms/kitchens) was great. Top quality towels (and plenty of them) beautiful cosy white bath robes all changed frequently by the lovely housekeeper when she comes in to clean the apartment and make the beds. We wish that we could have stayed for longer as it really is stunning. I can not recommend it highly enough - fantastic little find.

This is truely the most tranquil and beautiful place I have ever been. I was a flight attendant for 14 years and have traveled all over and had the luxury of staying in some wonderful hotels around the world. This is the most amazing rental in the most magical location. Make this trip. This is a place to truely relax. Masseria Pepenofio- Fico d'India is a real retreat.

The farm house rests on top of a large hill overlooking orchards and breathtaking red clay pastures with the sea in the distance. Giant old olive trees in every direction, local farmers and the pretty sound of goats bells in the distance surround you. All the while you are in total luxury with the modern accomadations and beautiful decor. The unique pottery, fine linens, fixtures, and modern bathroom are all of the highest quality and beautiful design.

The fresh fruits, vegetables, and herbs are all around the farm and there for the taking. The garden is filled with fruit trees and herbs that we cooked with every day. The lawn is soft and lush, the pool is crystal clear, the grounds immaculate.

I can't wait to return to Fico d'India to have my breath taken away all over again.

“Masseria Pepenofio, step back in time, with modern amenities...A luxurious Heaven on Earth.”

Heaven is Masseria Pepenofio. This was the most beautiful and magical place to live for a holiday. You will actually feel as though you 'live' here. It is so comforting to wake up to the beautiful countryside all around you. The fantastic views of the sunrise through the olive groves will capture your heart from every direction.
The bedding and the luxurious linens are perfection. We have never experienced a more comfortable bed. The mattress was perfect. The bed linens were beautiful and of the highest quality. You will fall in love with them. We even inquired about the exquisite bed cover made by Arte Pura, the owner made it possible for us to purchase. Just beautiful.
It was my best friend and I traveling to Puglia for the first time. We feel so fortunate to have experienced all that Masseria Pepenofio has to offer. The private pool is just the right size. Yes, the water is chilly, but it is refreshing and so very clean. We enjoyed swimming in the pool every day. The landscape at the Masseria is phenomenal. What is growing there? Let me list it for you: Pomegranates, pepperocinos, rosemary, figs, olives, tiny pears, lavendar, grapes, fico d'India (cactus fruit) and a private garden at your disposal. In the garden there are lemon, lime, and orange trees. There is sage, mint, basil, oregano, thyme and much more. We cooked every meal in our kitchen which was fully equipped.
The private patio was excellent for morning coffee and afternoon champagne. You can actually see the sea in the distance, from the private patio and pool. The pictures do not do justice to the beauty that will encompass you. We have traveled all over the world and we have never seen beauty that compares to Masseria Pepenofio and it's fantastic property. Every detail is perfection. You are minutes from the town of Monopoli or Polignano a Mare.
We had the pleasure of meeting the owners during our stay. Not only were they helpful with a history of the Masseria, they offered information on shopping, restaurants, local interests, etc. You will be enchanted by the decor of the Masseria Pepenofio. The entire Masseria has been graced by impressive ceramics, made by Enza Fasano Ceramiche. It is worth making the splendid journey to Grottaglie to purchase your own.
You must rent a small car. (You will need a small car just to park in town everyone has a small car, don't think American) The drive to the Masseria is a delightful adventure. You will travel a very winding road up the ancient countryside. Although very secluded and in our own world, we felt completely safe. There are no worries. (side note: We loved the Masseria so much, we cancelled our stay at an in-town apartment, and extended our stay at Pepenofio.)
We will return EVERY year. We love Masseria Pepenofio. Thank you, Hello Apulia!
