Masseria Fumarola is ideally situated in the middle of a number of interesting and unique small towns - Ostuni to the east, Locorotondo and Alberobello to the west, and Matera to the south-west. We stayed for 3 nights in the Bosco suite which was in one of the trulli and impeccably clean and pretty. The common areas and the grounds of the property are beautifully decorated with rest and relaxation in mind - you might have trouble prying yourself away from the peaceful surroundings to drive and visit other towns! The nearby Martina Franca has many good restaurants and is also quite enchanting.
We had dinner at the Masseria one night and it was exceptionally delicious, I highly recommend it: lots and lots of antipasti vegetables, many types of cheeses and cold cuts, followed by the softest, most flavorful meatballs and pasta. Breakfasts were quite amazing and copious as well, full of many wonderful choices including sweet melons, yogurts, cheeses, crispy croissants and other freshly prepared pastries baked by Daniello the groundskeeper (who would also builds us a fire in the evening to sit next to in the common living room, thank you so much for that!!!). We were always pleasantly full until dinner!
This was our first time visiting the area and when we come back we will definitely stay at Masseria Fumarola again! Thank you for your hospitality!
p.s. if you get tired of driving, there is a train you can take for an outing from Martina Franca to the crown jewel of the area, Lecce (though I recommend visiting Lecce for a few days at least!). Also, do try the seafood risotto and custard cake with cherries at Trattoria La Tana in Martina Franca... so good! Then take a stroll through the town with the locals. Wonderful!
