After a hair-raising 2 hour journey from Bari with exhibitions of extreme macho driving from locals, we arrived at the calm oasis of the tasteful Furnirussi Tenuta (quite hard to find with a regular road map) which has been created from nothing since 2007. The classic junior suites are stylish, contemporary and huge, with large walk-in wardrobe, spacious shower room,...

Dear Globetrotter, thank you for your positive feedback. Glad to know you found your stay at Furnirussi Tenuta "superb". It is highly possible that there was a unusual problem with your wi-fi code because they are usually made to cover the full stay of a guest. We will check with our technician to make sure it will not happen anymore....

This hotel may be a bit more expensive than the average, yet surely not as much as than hotels in its class, closer to tourist hot spots. And it is absolutely worth your money.

Lovely setting with a truly impressive, natural looking pool among the fig trees. Immediately one feels completely relaxed. Very warm welcome from the receptionist who spoke perfect English; indeed all the receptionists were very professional and knowledgable especially when planning day trips. The room was light and airy and modern. The patio space was nice and private but beware of...

So southern Italy is beautiful and this little hotel makes a great base for exploring, if you can drag yourself out of the comfort of your room and past one of the nicest pools you will ever find. But make the effort both Lecce and Otranto are stunning, the sea is amazing.
