The hotel is located right outside of the charming town of Martina Franca. It is an attractive setting with pleasant grounds and a pool. We had a large, pretty room with a nice bathroom. All very comfortable and clean. The highlight of breakfast were the homemade cakes and cookies by Angelica who is so sweet and eager to make sure that you are enjoying your stay as is her friendly husband Ruggiero. He, too, is eager to give you advice to ensure that your visit is enjoyable.

Relais Casabella is on a fenced property where you have the house of the owners and then a second house, which contains the guest rooms. It is situated outside of the busy centre of Martina Franca. The garden is beautifully maintained as is the swimming pool. The rooms are nice and well individually air-conditioned. However they are quite dark as they don’t contain many windows.
We stayed in Relais Casabella in August 2011 for 6 nights, which was a long stay according to the owner. In contrary to the infrastructure, the breakfast is very poor and but also each day exactly the same: bread, small croissants, a variety of home-made jams, coppa and some cheese industrially wrapped in plastic. (I saw a French review of this place saying exactly the same)
When I made a remark on this when leaving, after the owner asked me about our stay, he became quite angry saying that this is an Italian breakfast and what we are expecting is a lunch and that he doesn’t need people like us with our opinion. Quite impolite, especially when you know that we have some experience as we are visiting Italy several times a year and that this was the ninth Italian hotel /B&B we were staying in only this year. I’m a fluent Italian speaker so I quickly understand whether we are enjoying the real Italian hospitality. In this place, I felt more as a cash cow.
Moreover we experienced, as I read also in an earlier review, that the owner family uses their pool to invite friends (with their children), so the peace and rest looked after in such a place, could not always be found.
One more remark, the beds are with traditional springs, so if 1 of both partners moves slightly, the other one is getting sea-sick.

Egregio signore rispondiamo con ritardo ma con molta convinzione assicurandole che la nostra struttura non è idonea alle sue dimensioni ed esigenze. Più che una mucca da mungere c'è sembrata una vera mucca per dimensioni e per quanto ha mangiato nella nostra struttura a prima colazione, almeno per 7 persone. Eppure l'ha scelta lei la nostra struttura per il suo soggiorno quindi non ci sembra molto esperto ma semmai uno sprovveduto.
Grazie, comunque e speriamo di poter adeguare il Relais alle dimensioni degli ospiti.

We stayed 5 nights at Relais Casabella. The owners of the B&B are friendly, kind and very accommodating. The rooms are clean and quiet. The breakfast is delicious with homemade pastries. The B&B is located close to the beautiful town of Martina Franca and many of the surrounding towns. If we visit Martina Franca again we will definitely stay at Relais Casabella.

Casabella was one of the nicest facilities I have stayed in! The pool was wonderful and relaxing. It was located just blocks from Martina Franca town center. It was not touristy, we felt like one of the locals and very much at home. Mr and Mrs Ruggeri were very accomodating and took pride in their home and the guest facilites. It was a quiet and secure location. The location was accessable and a few hours from many great spots. I would recommend a stay with out a doubt. I would love to return some day.

It's a fantastic B&B!
The owners are very kind and are always at your service.
The rooms are beautifully decorated.
At the breakfasttable you can find a lot of tasteful home-made products, including fresh baked pie.
There's a large swimmingpool, in the beautiful garden filled with palmtrees.
We will definately be returning to this great B&B the next time we'll visit the beautiful South of Italy!

Ruggiero and Angelina, thanks for the beautiful holiday.
