Travelers' Choice
Histo Relais Culti is a new luxury hotel which has been built by carefully restoring an abandoned medieval manor and farmhouse of great historical importance, also due to the presence of an ancient Roman aqueduct. People have lived here since ancient Roman times. The Basilica of SS Pietro and Andrea, which dates back to 1st century AD, has been very carefully restored as well, and today it is a wonderful frame where it is possible to organize meetings, special events.

We were there at the end of June 2023. We chose it from advices and comparing other (starred) resort in Puglia. This resort is a bit out of luxury circles, but it is very valuable. From site it seemed nice and from earlier contacts via our travel agency concierge appeared gentle and efficient, even if their response time was not so smart. We arranged to fly from Linate to Bari, as railway if out of question, too much time and travel ca be a nightmare. Place is an ancient convent with old sone walls, all sorrunded by fields and olive plants. Rooms as been revamped recently and are very spacious, even it some details are not so cared: for example (bad to say... but it's very important anyway...) the toilet was broken: waitrerss did not see it preparing the room, we signalled to concierge and they fixed quicky. TV was not functiioning as antennas were out of service: concierge did all its best to fix, with no success... but t least we can see streaming. ;( To sum, up we did appreciate their effort and passion for their resort. To return to resort, the garden is very nice and cared, the pool si nice and cared, with much space between seats. The gem is the SPA: spacious, with many different rooms and massages solution. We di appreciate in particular the people working there: they are all from nearby and the loved their county: usually other famous SPAs (where we were) employ foreign young people that of course cannot communicate the passion for the place as they do not live there. The did eat at local restaurant: gentle people and nice rural product, but the level is not comparable to a starred restaurant: it's a pity for a such nice place.

We stayed here one night on our trip through Puglia and were delighted to see how this hotel was architectural beautiful. Location: A bit off the beaten track. Facility: Beautiful architecture, but very spread out. There is a spa, but we weren’t able to schedule a massage because everything was booked by non hotel guests. Room: Very large and spacious in a ultra modern taste. Bathroom was good with a huge double headed shower, but we found it difficult to figure out what controlled what. We were also confused by the HVAC because there was a control panel on the wall that didn’t work. It wasn’t until I discovered the the remote that I was able to control the heat. Food: We ate dinner at the restaurant and was very disappointed by the food and service. There was a large group having dinner and it appeared we were being forced through the meal to get us out before large group showed up. Service: overall the front desk service was very good, but the lack of service in the restaurant and spa was below par. While this hotel bills itself as a spa, it operates more like a group hotel.

The food is splendid. Thé environment also. It is a Pearl. Too bad that my quest for the historical information has not been fulfilled

We were invited for a 2 night wedding (and therefore I can't comment about the price). The place is most elegant and beautifully restored and preserved. The room is huge! it is remote enough from the city and quite.

My wife and me stayed at Histo as a “couples retreat” and we could not be happier with the service, the place and its surroundings. From Clara at the restaurant to the front desk staff and everyone we have met the service is impeccable and friendly. And the Masseria is one of the most gorgeous places we have ever stayed in Europe! What an amazing and beautiful place. I strongly recommend this place for couples or even families, as next time we will bring our little one

The mistakes: our room did not have electricity on arrival, our toilet did not stop flushing, the AC didn’t work at all, there is a total lack of maintenance and the food at lunch was the absolute worst (we had a raw burger 3 times, nothing was freshly made)!!! Please do not waiste your money here. This hotel is not worth 5 stars. Btw: Carla is the only one who knows what she did in that hotel, you deserve a raise!

For 290€ you would expect hot water in the shower, a plug to use the hairdryer in the bath, chairs on the balcony for the sunset and the cleaning equipment not to be left in the pool. Their dogs barked during the night and the weed trimmer chose our window to start his work at 7:00 am. We reserved an Executive room for 2 nights. We checked out after the 1st night. Nearly everything was dissatisfactory. The facility is lovely with its own deconsecrated Norman church. However the reception staff while all smiles were cold and not customer friendly. The restaurant was nice but again cold. The menu does not change. If you are there more than 1 night, you are faced with the same limited menu and there are no close alternatives. We asked to speak with the manager, but still not reply.

Dear Mr George, thanks for your feedback. We are disappointed to read it, as we were not aware about all your inconvenience. Moreover, we are surprised as we do not have any dog in our property and our maintenance team starts everyday at 7.30am. October is not Summer anymore, so pool is close, but we let you go, and the terrace (no balcony) is not set anymore to relax there (again, due to the season), but we had satisfied your kind request. Regarding the hot water, we have been informed just before you left, so was literally impossible to fix it,. We remain at your disposal for any further information. Kind Regards,

This is an amazing property the owner himself hands on with his project and motivating entire team to deliver the best service. The team is very experienced from GM to HK staff and dedicated to please their guest. The cuisine and service is great...Every time when I arrive here even with stressful meetings their hospitality cures all my stress. I hope one day I can have the time to come here for holiday...
