“Delightful time at Masseria Pepenofio”
Reviewed January 7, 2018 for a stay in September 2017

We arrived at Masseria Pepenofio, Fico d'India, in the evening and were greeted by Angela the housekeeper/manager of the property. This outstanding woman met our every need during our stay. The secluded, private villa sits on top of a hill reached by a scenic winding drive through ancient olive trees. Our little villa had two bathrooms, a spacious bedroom and a living/dining/kitchen. The best part of the villa was the wonderful private patio and our own swimming pool but we also enjoyed the shared pool where we could swim lengths. The property possesses wonderful gardens as well as a secret garden and our own fig trees so every morning we had fresh figs for breakfast. The town of Monopoli is nearby for grocery shopping and restaurants and the Autostrada is also conveniently close for exploring other ancient towns such as Lecce, Ostuni, Foggia (where the shrine of Padre Pio is located), Locorotondo, Alberobello, etc. There is no doubt that we will return to enjoy this peaceful paradise sometime soon.

“Paradise in Puglia”
Reviewed August 28, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

There's so many good things to say about this property. We stayed for 2 weeks in August and didn't want to leave. It is situated away from the main town, but a quick ten minute drive gets you to everything you need. We loved the private pool and backyard so much that we ate almost every meal at the property. The kitchen was so well stocked and made our dinners so easy to prepare. The staff, Angela, was an angel and so helpful (even with our terrible Italian!). She really took such great care of us and we loved our time at Masseria Pepenofio

“A piece of paradise, of greenery and a peaceful environment”
Reviewed August 20, 2014 for a stay in August 2014
1
person found this review helpful

We had a fantastic time there with our 2 children. The place is wonderful and the house atmosphere is so unique. To be honest, the photos hardly do it justice, we absolutely loved it.
The house is close to Monopoli village and general food stores are located less than 10 minutes from house in car. The travel agency 'Hello Apulia' was very helpful and communicated well from first booking until the end of our stay. Checking in was so easy. Our entire stay in Puglia was highlighted by staying in this house.
So many memories regarding our breakfasts spent on terrace overlooking the private pool, surrounded by olive trees ! We'll be back very soon.

Thanks for hosting us !

“Very nice, well decorated apartment with private pool!”
Reviewed July 28, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We enjoyed our stay in the apartment with private pool ver much. The apartment was very well decorated with a good sense of interior design. Also the garden furniture (Philippe Stark) and the sun beds (Fermob) were beautiful. We were surprised by the almost daily cleaning service and change of towels. We didn't expect this and was highly appreciated by us.
Two points of improvement:
-the contact person spoke hardly any english, so communication was difficult.
-the garden was beautiful and very well maintained. But.... The gardeners on saturday morning 07.00 hours wasn't very nice on a holiday. Also the gardener who started mowing the grass next to our apartment while we were have breakfast outside, was not such a nice surprise. He could have waited a while... But that's really all and we understand that the garden can only be so beautiful if gardeners can do their work.... So we don't complain. It's only a matter of points of improvement.

“Luxurious apartment / beautiful Masseria”
Reviewed July 14, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

The luxurious, comfortable and spacious apartment is tastefully decorated throughout. Everything you need for the perfect holiday is provided'. Our highlight was the private garden with pool and pergola. Having breakfast there was a great start to the day! The beautiful public open air swimming pool is only a few steps from the apartment and many stores in Monopoli just a few driving minutes away. We spent a wonderful holiday and would recommend this amazing apartment to all who are searching a peaceful and relaxing setting.

We loved staying in this masseria. It is beautifully decorated and equipped with all the comforts of home, including a nice little kitchen. The pool is lovely and refreshing and the terrace makes for a wonderful place to enjoy your breakfast. The location of this property is also very nice -- it's extremely quiet on a dirt road so you really feel like you're away from it all. I highly recommend this property.

Magnificent villa with all the comforts. Wonderful design, all extremely comfortable and clean. The kitchen has everything you need. Two bathrooms are large. On the terrace big white rustic table and sun chairs. Two swimming pools - the perfect solution on a hot day! Very convenient location of the villa, surrounded by olive groves, near the sea. There are shops to buy food. The owner Maurizio is very welcoming and helped us in a difficult situation with a sick child. Good place according the well price.
