Stayed here for 8 nights in May. We have been to other Masseria further north and enjoyed those, so decided to do the same again. At 160Eur per-night, this was reasonable value compared to other Masseria.
We had the standard room, though it looked like ours (#5) was slightly larger that the other standards. The rooms are clean/Spartan with a touch of Moroccan. Although they are not large, there was plenty of drawers/wardrobe space in which to place our cloths & bags, so we did not trip up over our stuff. The bathroom was large with a good shower. The bed was huge, (which makes the room in photos look smaller than it actually is). There was no air-conditioning, as we were told that it isn't switched on till June, -- However, they did supply us with fans.
The hotel is surrounded by its own extensive gardens, and grows it own veg. It has a medium-sized pool and a shaded area to relax under. The grounds where a big plus for us, as there were lots a seating areas where you could wander off an relax. They have free Wi-Fi, but you have to be near the Reception and even then it is weak. Staff where friendly and courteous. There are a few dogs and horses around, which have the place a nice farm-feel.
The breakfast was on par for a hotel of this standard, with lovely home-made cakes. We had lunch and dinner here a few times. Dinner is a set menu of several courses, and it was generally good, though sometimes hit & miss. Lunch was a buffet, but at 30Eur per-person seemed a tad expensive.
The nearest town is Ortranto which is only a 10min drive away. This is a nice little town, though the choice of good restaurants/bars was a bit limited.
Overall, I would recommend this hotel if I were to visit this part of Puglia for a relaxing holiday (though there is far more to do/see further north around Ostuni).
