Stayed 2 nights as part of trip, with the aim of visiting Lecce. It was originally a coaching inn, so rooms are spread round a courtyard, with dining on one side and a room used for meetings. Although there was some kind of seminar on while we were there the impact was minimal, other than the car park being fairly... More

This hotel was easy to find. On arrival we were given an enthusiastic welcome and shown to a comfortable room just off the courtyard. Whilst the bedroom was ample the bathroom was small.Breakfast and evening meals were good but the dinner portions were on the large side. The hotel has a new large secluded swimming pool. Despite this being an... More

Comfortable rooms set around the edge of a large courtyard, with a large swimming pool and a good restaurant. This is a peaceful spot, within easy reach of Lecce by car or with much less stress by train via Sternatia

Fields of olive, fig trees and vineyards. A fortified mansion. Manicured gardens. An indigo blue pool. Well appointed rooms. Powerful air conditioning units. Our bathroom was perhaps a bit too small if compared to the size of the room. We had some issues with our hot water. Antonio, the manager, acted diligently -as always- to solve it. He is definitely... More

Stayed here three nights specifically to visit Lecce which was stunning - more exuberant than Venice but without the crowds. There were few guests at Chico Rizzo so we had individual attention from the staff. They were all most kind, pleasant and helpful, especially Tania a delight with a nice sense of humour. Neraly all spoke good English. Food was... More

I read the great reviews of the masseria, but they must have been in summer time. We visited between Christmas and the New Year and booked the place because it had a restaurant. I checked this when booking, but when we were welcomed by Antonio 'unfortunately the cook was ill'. I think the restaurant did not open, because there were... More

This is a delightful masseria in a wonderful location. The building and grounds are beautifully restored and maintained. It is a traditional stone enclosure, containing simple but very comfortable rooms and an elegant pool. The provided breakfast is ample, and the dinners in the restaurant are excellent. Manager Antonio and the staff are all friendly and helpful. Antonios suggestions were... More

From them moment we were welcomed at Masseria Chicco Rizzo we could not have wanted for anything more. The team were exceptional, the location and Masseria itself are perfect, my only negative point was that we were not staying long enough! Thank you again to Antonio and the lady who looked after us so well at both dinner and breakfast,... More
