We found a time spot and unfortunately we had car probems getting there so we called them but arrived 30-45minutes late to a two hour service . we were scheduled for a massage, facial and... More

In a great place so you can really get around the region - south to Lecce, just up the road to Ostuni and on to Alborobello or off to the coast for swimming. The staff were friendly, helpful and charming. Yes they did not all speak English - but hey when in Italy! I do think we were the only... More

Where to start? This does not seem to be a wine hotel. I tried to order three different wines from Puglia, waited for ages and then was told they were "finished". Eventually we had to settle for something cheap that they had for sure, because we were in the middle of our meal by then. Why bother having such a... More

We visited this hotel in thisSeptember. I can easly say that it was an accidental decasion. We were just wondering if it was a good hotel. Because it was out of towns and just near the road to Ceglie Messapica from Ostuni. It is written as a logo "Ristorante Wine Hotel" in their web cite. And we are very glad... More

It's difficult to critisize a hotel we had such good memories of. We visited this hotel some 12 years ago for the first time.... At that time one of the top ten price/quality rated hotels of Italy. Over the years we stayed here many times on several occasions. Unfortunately we saw things getting worse. They call themselves a wine hotel... More

We had seen the mixed reviews before our stay, so were not quite knowing what to expect. However, we were very pleasantly surprised - our room was good, breakfast was more than adequate, staff were friendly and helpful, and the setting was very peaceful. We ate at the restaurant one of the evenings we were there, and had a great... More

First let me say that this is the first time I have written a bad report, but I feel I have to warn people. Overall we decided that this hotel was run down and badly in need of renovation. In fact it looked like that they had started renovating and then run out of money. Inside it is shabby but... More

Please listen to the other reviewers. We travel a lot and this is one of the worst. Stay at a 30 euro masseria for better quality. My husband booked this without reading reviews. Yes, it does smell. Plus, the jacuzzi and shower are in the room. This is not romantic. It is like being in a handicap room and the... More
