We spent 6 nights a Masseria Ferri and everything was perfect. The room was comfortable and elegantly furnished. The staff couldn't do enough and made a real effort to get to know guests personally and anticipate their needs. The beach was small and rocky (typical of the area) - which really didn't matter as the salt water pool was so lovely. The food and service were first rate. The menu changed daily and there were always tempting choices (preparations, fishes and meats) including regional Puglian specialties. The burrata took my breath away.
One tip - show enthusiasm for local Puglian wines! All the members of the restaurant staff know local grapes, wines and producers very well and are eager to recommend their favorites. They introduced us to some unforgettable bottles, took note of our preferences and suggested other wines that were right on the mark.
Another tip - spend enough time here to enjoy both the Masseria and the region of Puglia. The man at the Hertz desk at the Rome airport was stunned when we said we were driving to Puglia. He enthusiastically offered many helpful suggestions of towns and cities to visit. Lecce, Matera and Alberobello were all worth the trip. The Masseria arranged for english speaking guides, wine tastings and lunch reservations. In hot months, these towns bake in the heat. Plan to do the touring in the cool morning hours before retreating to a restaurant for an extended lunch during the mid-day heat.
