This was our first family holiday in Italy - would the Masseria be a good choice for two easily-bored teenagers and their work-weary parents? Bit too tranquil for the children, perhaps? Not a bit of it. For a start, there's a heart-breakingly beautiful swimming pool, surrounded by red and purple bougainvillaea, and lemon trees, where you bob along in the company of blue dragonflies and swallows (swifts?) swooping down for a drink. Enough to enchant even the most cynical 15 year-old. (And it's bigger than it looks in the photos on the website.) Then there's the great home-cooked food. And the need to retreat from the heat and dust of the local towns, and high-adrenalin motorway driving. Each of us felt genuine pleasure to be coming back to a comfortable, peaceful haven at the end of the day. And though there was a TV in our room, our son actually read a book by that wonderful pool. So, yes, for a family holiday in Puglia, Marzalossa is a great base.
