we had a room on the second floor of the house and it was amazing. With the bathroom (walk in shower) and room ( Four poster) it was the size of the whole of my ground floor at home.
Robes and slippers provided. Great toiletries etc.
Had one meal in the evening, really good quality, 4 courses for 35 euros, very fresh and imaginative.
It was the pool and surroundings including the bar and lounge areas which really gave the wow factor. Sublime. And no fighting over sunbeds, plenty and provided beach towels.

Huge tip - it's not easy to find it as you have to take a sharp right across a single track railway in the gap in the dry wall. The sign could be more prominent.

Room tip: There are trullis but the rooms in the house looked better

Trip type: Traveled as a couple

Villa Cenci is surrounded by typical Puglia land, made of old olive trees and vineyards. We have been invited to a wedding party. The swimming pool and the green around are fantastic, the buildings are sober and well integrated in the environment, with the shapes of "trulli".the service is kind and careful. You can easily understand the Management is clever and customer oriented. We tasted all the typical cheeses from Puglia, high level wines, fried panzerotti and different kind of vegetables.The dinner was very tasty, at buffer inside,waiting time acceptabel. There was a backgroud of jazz music, played by a group. Everything is perfect and balanced.Final selection of desserts, super!!!!!

We stayed here along with 40 friends and family in the week before our wedding. We also held a pre-wedding welcome party at Villa Cenci and all of our 70 guests complimented how amazing the hotel and it's grounds were.

The staff cannot do enough for you and the food is of very high quality. Even during our event when guests had a lot to drink the staff remained in good spirits and nothing was ever too much trouble for them.

We personally stayed in a superior room with a 4 poster bed and huge bath which was lovely. We viewed all of the rooms as part of our pre-visit and know they are all lovely. Some trulli are smaller than others but are still spacious for 2 people.

The grounds are immaculately maintained and the property has done a wonderful job of modernising original features whilst still keeping their character.

Don't hesitate to stay in this great hotel if you are in Puglia!

We spent one week here as a prelude to my daughters wedding.
Everything about the place is wonderful.
There is a small main building which has several rooms. We didn't see these but some members of our party did stay there and they all said that the rooms were spacious and very well kept and very clean and comfortable.
We stayed in a trulli house room of which there are several.
The bed was large and very comfortable. The bathroom was clean and had a good shower and towels were changed daily.
Breakfast was plentiful and varied as was lunch.
We had evening meals in their restaurant. There wasn't a choice as it was always a set menu and we would have preferred a la carte. However the food was acceptable.
To compliment all of the above this place has exceptional staff at all levels. You are made to feel special and appreciated.
We have visited Italy on many occasions but this was our first time in Puglia and it is absolutely beautiful and we will return and when we do we will stay at Villa Cenci!
Thank you.
