“Cooking class and olive oil tasting”
Review of Masseria Salamina

We had a wonderful couple of hours here with the lovely family that runs this Masseria. There is a brother and sister with their spouses and children, and grandparents, that live on this compound. We took a cooking class from the sister and she was super.

We made individual, homemade focaccia and also three kinds of pasta, and when we sat down to eat those dishes they were supplemented by other tasty sides from the kitchen. The brother, Phillipo, gave us a small education and an olive oil tasting while we waited for our focaccia dough to rise.

This experience was more interesting than I ever expected and we learned so much about family life and agrotourism in Italy. This was one of my favorite experiences on this trip to Italy. Lovely people and lovely experience.

We had a marvellous group stay Masseria in early March. I loved every aspect of the hotel, the welcoming, friendly, helpful service from the owner and all staff, the outstanding breakfast and dinner, magnficent setting and grounds, the clean, beautifully decorated spacious room, the little touches like toiletries and aperitivo, very comfy bed and luxurious bathroom. Can't wait to go back in summer to enjoy the gardens and pool.

A 3 night stay as part of our cycling trip booked by Puglia Cycle Tours and we were overwhelmed by our accommodation. Quite spectacular. Dinners were reasonably priced, especially considering the organic fare. However, first night was fish night and was quite awful. Fortunately we had 2 more nights to experience the cooking and it was overall very good. Would definitely recommend a stay here and suggest avoiding the fish night dinner.

We were cycling Puglia and we were so elated to ride up the (rocky) driveway on our bikes and see our 3 night lodging. We all gasped, WOW! It is such a grand property surrounded with olive tree groves, flowers and other greenery. There were gardens, chickens and I could see horses out in the field. Our rooms were quaint, well appointed and so very clean. The swimming pool was gorgeous! We all loved this place!!

We stayed for 3 nights and were unexpectedly upgraded to the superior suite in the manor house which was extra special for us. The suite had a spacious living room, bath with jacuzzi as well as a separate shower and balcony with a great view (see pics).
However, we wouldn't want anyone to think that the room was the only important aspect of our stay - it was just icing on the cake.
The masseria was beautiful itself with a lovely pool and a peaceful location. The staff and owners were all very attentive, friendly and helpful and made the experience extra special.
We are not the easiest people to satisfy regarding our food needs but our waitress Giusy was tolerant of our needs and carefully explained what we could and could not eat as well as suggesting and organising alternative dishes for each dinner we had whilst we were there. We thanked her for her attentive service before we left and now everyone who reads this review can know we really did appreciate her help!
Dinner started with an appetiser of 4 different very interesting dishes that got the taste buds going and introduced thoughts of how we could use some of the ideas in our own cooking. Second course was usually pasta, then a third course of meat or fish followed by dessert just in case one was still hungry - not likely. By the third night we had to drop a course. And the cost was very reasonable.
Breakfast was a good choice of the usual breads, yogurts, eggs, cakes, fruit, juices, cereals - this is not a place you'll go hungry.
So full marks on all counts.
