We just returned from a two week trip to Puglia and stayed in Masseria Gattamora for 2 nights. I don't know how we found out about it before we went, but am I glad we did! It was our favourite place and I highly recommend a stay if you want to get away from it all and relax by the pool and eat excellent food. The grounds were stunning with areas to sit and relax under orange/fruit trees but only a short drive from Otranto and its beaches.
It is mainly a restaurant with very well appointed rooms which include air conditioning and some have a terrace. The food was amazing and maybe the best we have eaten in Italy. It is Puglian food with a contemporary twist which, after weeks of eating the same old thing everywhere we went, this was a breathe of fresh air.
We started with a stunning mixed antipasto of vegetables fish and cheese, followed by pasta with a lamb ragu and pecorino cream - I will remember this dish for a very long time. The mains were huge pieces of succulent meat or fish with sides. They had an extensive wine list and the staff were very friendly (as we found all the Pugliese to be).
A stay at the Masseria is €90 per night per room plus €28 per head for dinner - great value and a place that will stay with you long after you leave.
