Lovely place but a pig to find in the dark. Road conditions are appalling. Staff lovely. Food wonderful although the second nights food wasn't as good as the first night. Different chef maybe? We had a dessert which was left by serval people. I complained and waiter replaced. B'fast was excellent. Nice rooms but bathrooms very small. Very quite. Pool... More

Dear Guests, we thank you for Your feedback. Unfortunately the road is municipal road and we urged the municipality to do something. We are sorry for the second night in our restaurant. We are sure that the next time you come back it will be all to your pleasure. Our best regards More

We stayed at Masseria Panareo for ten days in September 2012. We loved our stay and hope to return one day. The staff were fantastic, friendly and couldn't have been more helpful, nothing was too much. Our room was spotless and the food was amazing, well presented and delicious.

The masseria has been restored in a very stylish way, the rooms are still authentic, the surrounding is a pleasure for the eyes and the soul, the view on the ocean (from you pool chair) is a dream and the food is to die for (we ate there 4 evenings out of 5). The waiter made us feel at home,... More

This hotel is situated off the main road along a long drive, it looks down over the the blue sea from its hill top location. The rooms are compact but our room sadly did not have a view of the sea, it was built around a large courtyard. The outdoor private patio added another dimension and made up for the... More

Really enjoyed our family meal here. We are staying north of Otranto and up til now had eaten in the centre of town. Driving south we found this easily and had a lovely evening on the outdoor terrace with great views all around. Food was imaginative compared to the standard fare in Otranto and stylishly presented. Service was slowish but... More

Masseria Panareo is amazingly calm and peaceful. The surroundings are breathtaking and the atmosphere is very friendly and welcoming. The service feels very personal. The rooms are nice looking and clean, with space enough for two people. The rooms we stayed in had a small outside patio, very nice for a drink before dinner. The pool was very appreciated by...

The views are fantastic and the grounds are beautiful. Our room was pleasant and spacious enough, with a nice secluded patio area (with shower & drying area) at the back - no privacy issues. Staff were pleasant and generally helpful. We were on half board and would not have wanted to venture out at night to eat elsewhere in case... More

After a bit of a challenging arrival (we definitely did not arrive the most efficient way) we were thrilled to see the lovely grounds of this family-run masseria with a stunning view over the sea in the distance. We accidentally arrived from the south, which gave us a chance to see the magnificent coastline between Otranto and Santa Cesaria Terme.... More

We chanced upon this masseria on the spur of the moment and liked it so much we stayed 5 nights having originally booked only 2. The location overlooking the sea is lovely, our room again overlooking the sea was really comfortable and the decor and furnishings were simple but elegant. Ask for room 6 when booking!.
