Italian countryside, Apulian tastes, perfect location for a short gateway to Southern heel of Italy! Our staying during April 2012 was unforgattable... Not far away from here, take the coastal road to Savatelli, you can find a very good Seafood Restaurant called Da Renzina (my wife loves the fresh sea urchin appetizer)..Worth a try!

My husband and I spent last week at the Masseria. First the positives: the setting, the pool and room size are extremely attractive. Now for the negatives: there are many small things the hotel can implement to make the experience memorable. The hotel is more adapted to holding wedding receptions rather than hosting guests who are there for a vacation.... More

It is the second year we stay at this hotel for our trip to Apulia. We could not ask for more. The building is grand but with a familiar feeling. The staff at the reception is one of the best we encountered in our trips: professional, personal and efficient. The general Manager is always present on the premises (no matter... More

I was in two minds about this review. Did I keep this very special place to myself or did I write a glowing review. Well I decided not to be selfish, and sing the praises of the Masseria del Cardinale. It is wonderful! My wife and I cannot fault it. If you want somewhere luxurious and special, where you are...

We were staying in Locorotondo, a charming hilltop village, with a wonderful traditional Italian community when we decided to have a one-night break to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Quite by chance we passed by Masseria Cardinale and decided to go and have a look. From the first moment we got there the staff were so courteous and charming and we... More

This 5 star hotel was the best we stayed in during our stay in puglia. The hotel is set in a newly renovated masseria set in the middle of an immense olive garden. Rooms are spacious and brand new, while keeping the traditional italian spirit. The swimming pool is simply the largest i have ever been in, it must be... More

The “Masseria del Cardinale” among the most prestigious estates in Puglia, was once the seat of the Knights of Malta and it’s now the seat of the Historic Bailiwick of the Byzantine Order of the Holy Sepulchre.It was built in limestone and clay and during the centuries it was enriched with monumental portals and terraces. ... more   less
