We stayed at Relais Casabella for a month while looking for a permanent home in Martina Franca. The hotel has so much charm and character, but is also very clean and updated with many modern conveniences (rare in the part of Puglia). Ruggiero and Angelica are the sweet owners who live on the property. They will tell you to knock on their door if you need anything during your stay. Honestly, they were so kind that we felt like their grandchildren while we were there. One thing to consider, neither of them speak English. My wife and I speak decent Italian so we were fine, but if you don't I recommend using google translate on your phone. Breakfast is a typical Italian breakfast with pastries, jams, breads, caffe, fruits, yogurt and absolutely no, no eggs or meat. As others have wrote, you definitely need a car to travel the area around Martina Franca. When arriving to the hotel for the first time, note that Relais Casabella's location isn't correct on many GPS maps. For this reason, the owners prefer to meet you at the local "ENI" gas station on
via Taranto" and then follow them to the property.

We stayed at Relais Casabella for 5 nights in a two bedroom suite with a large bathroom. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were kept very clean. Breakfast is a typical Italian breakfast and was plenty for us. Owners Ruggiero and Angelica are very friendly but be sure to have google translate if you don't speak any Italian. We had cappuccino and espresso each morning; just be sure to ask Angelica if you prefer that. There are tables on the terrace overlooking the yard to enjoy a glass of wine. We highly recommend a car if you want to visit in the town of Martina Franca. It is only a 5-10 minute drive but the road is not great for pedestrians to walk to town. GPS is a must in order to locate Relais Casabella. After visiting busy towns, it is very pleasant to return to the quiet beautiful grounds of Relais Casabella.

We had a lovely 2 bedroom suite. The owners were very warm and welcoming. It was located a few minutes outside Martina Franca about 15 minutes walk. There was plenty of parking in Martina Franca too.
Relais Casabella also had a great pool and tennis courts.
The breakfast was a buffet style with plenty of choice. The hot drinks were in thermos flasks, which was not so good as the coffee was tepid. Freshly made coffee would have been better. The mini bar in the room was very good value offering a bottle of Proscecco or red wine for 5 euros.

We arrived at a good time to the house, there was a little confusion over which room we had booked. It was soon sorted out. The couple running casabella are lovely, we made good use of google translate to chat a little!
We booked the suite on two floors, which gave us lots of space as we were staying a little while. The cleaner kept our room pristine and you could always tell from the shine on the floor. Fabulous.
The facilities are fantastic, a huge well kept pool and tennis court, plenty of parking and beautiful grounds.
Tea and coffee facilities in the room keep us Brits very happy! The mini fridge with fizz was extremely reasonably priced.
Breakfast was very homely, with homemade jams, cakes, local fruit etc.
We had rented a car, but chose to leave it behind often as parking in Martina Franca is very tricky. The walk to the main area of town (piazza xx Septembre) takes about 20-25 minutes and is quite uphill, it suited us well though after many big dinners. Martina Franca doesn't seem to really have taxis, so be prepared to walk. The advantage of being slightly outside is of course the space and the tranquility.
We would likely come here again. Thank you.

A fabulous place to stay. The rooms and the owners are delightful. Breakfast was very good and plentiful. There is a definite need for a car if party members are older or not very mobile. Taxi drivers are scarce in Martina Franca and one of our party struggled particularly with the uphill walk back from town.
