While mucking about in Apulia,and around Taranto,we read about a hostilary that begged discovery. Our itinerary is based on spending 2 days minimum luxury in a 12- day cycle. So, on a lagoon six km outside Taranto,only 50 kmfrom Brindisi airport,sits this amazing former monastery,former 14th century masseria,built in the ruins of a Roman villa.. There is no lack of...

My Family had a 2 night stay in this hotel in July 2013. From first sight through reception to the room was a luxurious experience. Fantastic. The surrounding area is arid and best explored with the vicinity on horse back which we organised through the hotel. The rooms were superb elegant and first class. The spa was not open when... More

The hotel is vey nicely renovated: with natural materials and trying not to spoil the medieval flavour, but adding comfort. The room was very large with a nice bathroom. Besides being very clean and confortable, the room was very far away from noise. The whole place was away from the town, but not far away from turistic attractions, restaurants, shops... More

Best wedding location ever, stylish,original,modern,romantic,elegant. We arrived here at late afternoon,weather was bad so cannot tell about surroundings. I cannot tell about rooms,either,but restaurant quality (food and service) was excellent. I cannot imagine a better place for such celebrations.

We stayed here in early September for six nights and thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Histo. Although located next to Taranto, which looks like an industrial town, being based just to the South on the coast it is easy to avoid the city. There are lots of interesting places around to visit including the coast, however, a car would... More

We recently stayed at this hotel for 4 days. The hotel is excellent, our room was hugh and the standard of everything from the bed linen to the bathroon was of the highest standard. All the staff were friendly and nothing was to much to ask. The complex and grounds of this hotel was an oasis. The food in the... More

The Relais Histo' is well located to the east of Taranto. We found the room comfortable, clean and well equipped. Dinner in the Restaurant was excellent. It's only a short drive to a large shopping complex. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. It is a shame that the Spa is not open at present.

We stayed for 4 nights at this beautiful place. Even though we thought about leaving earlier to find another hotel further to the south, we were so charmed by this hotel that we didnt want to leave. The place is well taken care of, staff very porfessional. You could see it's a very popular place for weddings. There were 2... More

Stayed 4 days at this excellent hotel. It is very relaxing, a lot of open space which makes it quiet. The hotel is surrounded by farm land. After staying in hotels located in downtown Italian cities, this place was a nice change. The rooms are very large, a 5 star restaurant, I had the best tasting duck dinner ever at... More
