This hotel is a little off the beaten track, set high in the hills above Fasano, although well placed for exploring the Valle D'Itria. The charming, trulli - filled town of Alberobello Is a UNESCO World Heritage site and around 10km from the hotel. The hotel itself consists of blocks of rooms grouped around fine landscaped gardens. Our room was large with a terrace. Bed was comfortable, bathroom only average. The pool is large and was delightful during the height of summer. The staff were on the whole pleasant.
The food was a mixed experience. We only ate dinner here once as it was appalling - extremely bland and cold. The breakfast buffet was the usual fare of breads, cheeses, meats, cakes, cereals, fruit etc but plentiful and of good quality. Turn left out of the hotel and there is a fantastic restaurant next door.
The hotel offers free bike hire but be warned: while cycling down the hills exploring the region is exhilarating (within 10 minutes you can find yourself in the wilderness surrounded by olive groves), returning is gruelling!
I would recommend this hotel if you don't mind being far from the beach.
