Gianfranco e Monica of Masseria Cappuccini are great hosts at this super place. A keen sense of humour and friendly banter was always on the cards.
The steep little road to get there suggests something special at the end and we were not disappointed. The views are spectacular and the typical tuscan building is very comfortable.
Nello organised Monica to cook dinner some evenings for us, and her cooking has to be the best we had in Italy over a 10 day period. Nothing was too much trouble, she shared the recipes and Gianfranco friends' wine complemented the dinner very well.
If you want to visit the real Italy ask Gianfranco o to tell you about non-tourist places like Ostuni where life is unspoiled by tourists, except that we did, of course, and Pieza where you can sample and buy cheeses from the local producers.
Monica looked after us for breakfast and was always smiley and helpful.
The location is pretty central to most of Puglia , which allowed us to have a day out and get back to the haven of Cappuccini in the evening.
I have no doubt that we will be returning some time in the future
