“Rural retreat with a hint of luxury”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

Solo staying with group travel. Set in olive groves with farmland around (beware braying donkeys at 6.00 am), sparkling white building with trulli house type ceilings to some parts of the main building. Bar and relaxation areas lovely and very smart. Outdoor pool and a plethora of sundecks. But without the sun it all looked a little stark and cold. Food was not as good as some other hotels we had stayed in although I would think this was catering for too many and the food would have been better if you were just a couple. However, rooms were very new and the walls a bit thin - I am afraid I could hear every toilet flush and cough. Very well located for travelling out (by car) to central Puglia and its historical sites. Would recommend for a stop over. Will probably be extremely busy in high summer with large tour parties. Pretty and staff were pleasant enough.

I was with the same tour group in mid April and I agree with all this reviewer's remarks dated 29th April 2013. . I was not impressed with the hotel. In addition, our room was near to a field of donkeys and they woke me up in the middle of the night twice, with their braying. All I can say is the room had lots of wardrobe space and was clean. But, as the reviewer said, the food and the service sadly left a lot to be desired.

We stayed at Masseria Chiancone Torricella for four nights mid-April as part of an organised tour. The masseria seemed unprepared for our arrival possibly because we were the first visitors of the season. The bedrooms were cold because everything was marble and there are no mats on the floors. The heating had to be on at all times. This is a hotel for hot summers not early spring with cold nights. The food was poor. At breakfast on the second morning tea-bags had run out, yet on our final morning they still had not been replenished. The bread was awful and hot drinks were dispensed from a machine. On the final morning there was no prepared fresh fruit as had been the case, just stewed prunes and a bowl of apples oranges and kiwis. Staff were barely visible. As to the evening meals the less said the better. There was no problem with the ingredients, it was just that the chef murdered them! Masseria Chiancone Torricella is not somewhere I would recommend to friends or family. There seemed a general disinterest in the guests, and their comfort.

my wife and i first used this hotel in 2009 and it was still having work carried out in areas not directly affecting customers it was clean,rooms nice size and staff really helpful and friendly.
we went back this year to have a meal and see how the hotel was developing and they have created a fantastic hotel with great staff and a great place to stay.the food was excellent and a fair price.more upmarket food is on the menu so not suitable for people who do not like to try something different. if you are wanting to explore this part of italy with a little bit of luxury this is the place to stay.

we found this on the internet and got a good price, so were pleased to see it was almost empty during our stay. our room was lovely, spacious with so much wardrobe space! the bathroom had ceiling window so lots of daylight pourred in. the pool was the biggest we had during the 8 days in puglia, but probably gets crowded in high season. we had breakfast as our only meal here (reasonable choice of cakes, some savoury, and fruit) The reception was very helpful and polite, the poolman also. you do need a GPS though, as impossible to find, and we did a different route each trip! the town of martina franca is about 15mins drive (lovely place) and the trulli are easy to get to so it's quite a good area to stay to discover the area.

Room Tip: some rooms have wi-fi you must advise on booking! in the reception area, also

Any place that caters to large tour groups is cleary not ment to be romantic. It offers confortable and very clean rooms, air conditioning and a wonderful pool (be careful: 2 euro for a pool towl!!! Bring your own!). Grounds are very well kept. The breakfast is very disappointing (again made for large group). Hard to find, better to have a GPS. This is the all-too-familiar beautiful old masseria with a lot of modern addictions (not in keeping with original architectural integrity). Overall we felt positive, the quietude compensate the modernity.

We stayed here for two nights in July. First of all, this hotel is in a rather remote area, and its a good advice to have your own car to get around.

When we arrived from the parking, we had problems with finding the main entrance of the hotel. No signs and doors were locked. Pretty annoying start. When we checked in, our room was not ready so the staff told us to "just wait a few minutes"...ok...we waited for almost an hour. Atleast the room was clean when we finally got it.

We found the room big and spacious. With doors to be opened out to a ground leveled terrace. AC worked well.

We never tried the restaurant, we drived to Martina Franca and Alberobello for dinner.

Breakfast was good. Nice area to enjoy breakfast outdoor. The food were typical for Italy. Ham, salami, cheese and cereal. Several choices of pasteries.

The hotel area is nice, with flowers and lawn areas. Several places to sit to relax. The hotel felt for us almost emty, so we felt like we were alone. The pool were not heated, and not crowded at all. Nice to take a refreshing dip and continue to relax in the sun..with a beer from the pool bar.
