although having only eight rooms, rthis establishment also has a pool and a michelin recommended restaurant. The rooms are either in converted trullis or in as sxmall converted stable block. They are spacious and well equipped. if there is a drawback, it is that the restautrant is shut on sundays and therfe are few other eating places nearby or in the town of Noci, but don't let that put you off. This a classy establishment and staffed by friendly helpful people who cant do enough for you

During a week driving around Puglia, we decided that a few days in a trullo might be in order. I wanted somewhere from which I could explore many of the 'must see' towns and sights in central Puglia. After extensive research, I chose the Abate Masseria and what a gem it turned out to be.
Don't let the word 'resort' put you off. It's small, discreet and beautifully manicured. Our trullo was a shock - many times better than I had anticipated. The interior comprised a fabulous bathroom, a sumptuous living room and a curtained archway through to a hugely comfortable bedroom area. The feeling was that of a four star suite within an elegantly styled and attractively constructed multi-roofed trullo. Everything was tastefully thought through. Quality linen, a giant bed and hugely efficient air conditioning/heating units.
Adjacent to the pool, the setting couldn't have been better. A few metres stroll to the main building for breakfast and dinner was a delight. Staff were brilliant. Incredibly welcoming and unfailingly helpful. We stayed three nights and it hallmarked our entire visit to this region. The town of Noci is unpretentious and authentic and the position of Abate makes it an ideal base from which to access so many of the charming towns and sights which you simply shouldn't miss in this area.
I have no hesitation is recommending this Masseria. I wish I were still there.

My husband and I travelled to Noci in June, 2009, NOT 2012. I did quite a bit of research before booking at Abate Masseria. We were not dissappointed. The property is beautiful, service impeccable and restaurant outstanding. We were able to arrange for guides and had a wonderful experience. We continually talk about our stay at the masseria and cannot wait to return for an extended stay.

We spent a lovely week here at Abate Masseria resort and like all the reviews I would like to add my support for the level or customer service provided not only by Mino and his staff but also the staff of the restaurant who were equally as good. The food overall was excellent, maybe breakfast could have been slightly better but this is being perhaps a bit picky and I am sure if we wanted anything we could have had it. The price of food and drink whether by the pool or in the restaurant was equally as good and much better value then one would find at similar resorts in Spain or Portugal. Some comments have been made about the restaurant being open to non-residents but we found this gave the place a good buzz and better atmosphere and it certainly did not take from the level of service. Be aware however that the restaurant closes on Sunday evenings and all day (other then for breakfast) on Wednesdays. The location of this resort is good for exploring the region and overall I could recommend it with the following minor and maybe my own personal reservations.
Firstly the beds, which I found hard and somewhat uncomfortable. A good mattress topper would be a great investment. Bathroom accessories were not always replenished daily and I think the policy of changing your pool towels every second day should be dropped. There are only eight or so rooms so to change them daily would not break the bank or cause an environmental disaster. Finally an investment in some new more comfortable sunbeds would be well worthwhile.

Room Tip: The Trulli Rooms are great and well worth the small extra cost.

This hotel offers comfortable rooms, a quiet location, nice gardens and a lovely spotless (if rather cold) pool. The staff are extremely helpful. Good food - breakfasts were much better than we expected in Italy.

The hotel's website does not do the place justice.

If all hotels cared about their clients the way Mino and Christina do at Abate Masseria then the world would always be travelling. One example: we forgot the map to get to the hotel, and when we rang them on the outskirts of Noci, Mino kindly talked us all the way into the hotel, corner by corner, road by road and strode out to greet us when we arrived.
Abate Masseria is a small but lovely hotel. The pool and surrounding areas are peaceful and well kept, with decent- sized and exceptionally clean rooms (with aircon) , a very fairly priced minibar, excellent pool service and a restaurant on site (albeit owned by another party). Worth noting that a car is essential to get around. As mentioned by another traveller, the restaurant does occasionally hold an evening function and it might intrude a little. If you want to be sure of peace then stay in one of the trulli (walls are trulli thick!)
The most outstanding feature of the hotel though is the friendliness of the owners and their sheer passion to ensure that all guests have a wonderful stay. I would have no hesitation to return.

We were looking for somewhere unique and different from the rest of our month long stay in Italy (Tuscany, Florence, Lake Como, and Rome), Abate Masseria in Puglia was the perfect choice! The landscape of the region is like something out of a dream. The people are incredibly friendly. The food is our favorite region for Italian faire. Abate Masseria is the perfect place to explore... or sit by the pool and enjoy Mino and Christina's impeccable hospitality!
One afternoon a guest asked for a Bloody Mary. Mino googled the recipe and went to the store to buy ingredients. Voila! He served up the only Bloody Mary in Southern Italy!
The truli's are exceptionally-simply decorated and the overall accommodations are outstanding.
We were traveling with our three children and this was one of the most comfortable places we stayed. Thank you, Mino, Cristina, and the rest of your beautiful family!
