We stayed here for a week in mid October. What an amazing place! Beautifully restored retaining much of the character but with more than a bit of luxury. The pool was finished when we were there. Although very large and very pretty, it was freezing. Maybe some solar heating would be a good idea!
The hotel was quiet when we were there except for the odd function in the rooms at the end of the courtyard , which did not interfere with us at all.
Our only slight disappointment was the menu. What food we had was very good but there was no choice and rather limited. I am sure this would be better at busier times of the year. Breakfast was very good and plentiful though.
We ate out every other night and at this time of year had to look quite hard to find restaurants open. Ostuni has a couple of excellent ones.
A word of warning if you have not been to this area of Italy before and you not early risers. Everything closes around 1pm and does not open again until 4.30 and this often includes restaurants even in the cities. Taranto is well worth a visit but Monday is half day closing and nothing opens until 4.30
