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 at least the size of two olympic pools put side by side. Breakfast buffet is superb too.
We would definitly come back, considering that other 5 star establishement with similar amenities cost anywhere from 450-600 Euro (Puglia's 4 and 5 stars are very costly since there are so few of them).
