What a lovely experience this was! Set in quiet countryside about 7m from Martina Franca this is an idyllic spot in which to relax, and much better than any descriptions or photos. The staff are friendly and helpful, the food good and the rooms very clean, large and with a door opening onto a terrace (shared) complete with deck chairs for personal chilling-out time.
The pool area is a delight with a bar and light snacks available, and a gravel path surrounds the whole complex passing on the way an aviary and a home to several donkeys, deer and 2 pigs. There is a second larger aviary near the car park which is home to hens and cockerels, guinea fowl and quail plus turkeys. There have been some comments about the donkeys! Take no notice! You MIGHT hear one fairly early in the morning along with the cockerels, but unless you are in a room right on top of them this shouldn't be a problem. This is the country after all.
we stayed here for 4 nights and found the food delicious. The breakfast buffet is really very good.
As part of a group we were able to go out on a couple of tours from the hotel. Otherwise you will need to plan some trips;just staying by the pool all day, reading etc would not be enough for us, although plenty might like to do just this, depending on existing stress levels. However, a trip to Martina Franca is a must; small but beautifully formed. Go!!
