We stayed in the Masseria for a week in May just after the hotel opened for the year.
The hotel and grounds are immaculate, beautiful white buildings in a pretty orchard. The white theme is continued into the rooms which also have a hint of Morocco about them. We stayed in a lofty and spacious room converted beautifuly from the original building. For once the room had lots of storage space and not one but two long mirrors!! The only niggle was the shower which lacked a cubicle and therefore involved clinging wet shower curtain and a soggy bathroom.
Service and cleanliness are excellent and a beautiful breakfast is served by charming staff outside each morning. The dinner emphasises local dishes with very limited choice but the quality is good. Don't miss eating in some of the lovely restaurants in Otranto some nights the hotel was happy to make recommendations and bookings.
We have rarely seen a hotel with so many places to relax outside both in sun and shade and the pool area is pretty and the pool itself even in early May is delightful.
There are plenty of places to see within an hour's drive. We particularly enjoyed Gallipoli. Although the coast is near and otranto has a town beach we found that to get to a less urban beach we needed to drive at least 15 minutes. The beach we favoured was beautiful and sandy.
For a relaxing stay in the Salento this is an excellent choice.
