I just arrived in my room and am already looking for another hotel and leave thus unfriendly place. Cold welcome, humid and smelly room. And we have just been informed there wes no place at the spa nor massage during our stay, seriously? Avoid at all cost. (The building and garden is really beautiful)

The Relais Histo is a great hotel- nice pool, lots of nature, good restaurant, and amazing spa. My only complaint is that the staff did not speak English- we were okay with this as we were staying with Italian friends, but I think this could be a problem for travellers coming from foreign countries. Otherwise, it is a great resort,... More

We had stayed 2 nights at this hotel and right after our departure we noticed that we have forgotten my wife's purse. Calling the hotel, a front desk employee - Alessandra - confirmed that the purse was found. She asked for an e-mail with instructions for an expedite shipment but to our surprise, and after dozen attempts to call the... More

Our family trip to Puglia brought us to this Masseria near Taranto. We were incredibly impressed by the quality of the hotel, where every detail was thought with maximum detail. I run into a gentlemen from the hotel and asked who the architect was, he replied he did most of the design using his experience and heart. I told him... More

This is a magnificent 14th Century masseria situated on the outskirts of Taranto. Overall we had a very enjoyable stay at Relais Histo. We had a beautiful two level two, bathroom room (123) with a small sunny outside terrace. The restaurant offered a good continental breakfast, but I would have expected them to source freshly baked bread from a local... More

Located in the country side, into a quiet spot, sorrounded by olive trees. Views are nice. Rooms are more than spacious. Restaurant offers a wide menú & wines. Higly recommended both for business & holidays in family. Wifi doesen´t worked propperly in the room.

Nice structure with quality of Spa and restaurant food/service but a little bit disappointed about the general organization of the staff and the reservation, because none call us to say what time we suppose to start the Spa, even during the check in on the hotel didn't explain what we have to do. The room was really big and hot... More

The hotel is well designed and clean - rooms enormous and super comfortable. I found the staff at reception most helpful and happy. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening meal and breakfast in the dining room, waiters were especially helpful as we only wished to eat vegetarian food. All in all a very pleasant and calming experience, sadly as this was... More

Really enjoyed this hotel. Located literally on the ancient ruins. After swimming in the pool you can sun bathe next to ancient ruins. You are located next to olive, fig, and lemon trees. Rooms are large and beautifully furnished. We would love to return and stay longer. Breakfast was delightful with a selection of interesting fruits and nuts which you... More

People have lived here since ancient Roman times.
