We spent 3 nights at Villa Cenci in late Sept / early Oct 2015. We found the expansive property to be very pretty and well maintained. The staff (particularly Umberto, Micheli, Vito, and Topo) were all very friendly and accommodating. The on site restaurant was really good and a welcome alternative to a trip into Cisternino which didn't seem to... More

For our first holiday together we could not have choosed something better. Even if last minute, we managed to sleep in a trullo. The owners were gentle and descret. The rooms were VERY clean, simple but very nice decorated and very spacious. Unfo the internet connection was bad. Breakfast is served until 11 (on holiday is magic). Pool very clean,... More

Lovely hotel well placed and comfortable and clean. There was a shortage of amenities such as lotion, shampoo etc. The wifi was almost non existant and only available sometimes and only near or in one building. Staff communication was really bad and lacking in help for the guests. What really floored us was the fact that we were not informed... More

The location is great. Nice building, a realy nice garden with a large pool. You feel more like visiting a friends house with a large garden than in a hotel. The problem - there are no friends. We were "welcomed" by a lady at the reception that did not ask how we are or if we found the house easily... More

We would have given a 4 star rating if it wasn't for the scam. Great location, good food, good accommodation. But then to be spoiled by this was a real shame. We checked out 1st July this year after a very nice stay. However, we didn't notice that we been overcharged by 140 Euro. Such mistakes can happen - this... More

The whole stay was relaxing, it's is very peaceful. The staff are wonderful, willing to help in any way they can to make your stay enjoyable. We stayed in one of the larger rooms with a hot tub. Although I'd recommend going for just a trulli, as the hot tub ended up being a large bath so possibly not worth... More

You are now trully in Trulli territory.with these buildings the most covetted accomodation in Apulia. Villa Cenci is one of the loveliest Trulli hotels that we have experienced. its an old country estate that's been... More

The second 'hotel' of my trip here in Italy. A beautiful estate in the country located near Cisternino. Beautiful rooms (both the truli and the superior room), great service and above all peace and quiet. The safe in the room was convenient. The breakfast existed out of a healthy buffet with typical Italian dishes. The lunch buffet is 25€, so... More

It might need a certain "intelligence" to find it, as direction signs are a bit vague, but once you are in this tastefully restructured Masseria, with its quaint "trulli" rooms, with their lavander colored windows, and fragrant lavander bushes you will be grateful, truly grateful, that you have chosen it. The cristal clear pool, the lush gardens, the very yummy... More
