Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 13 rented the entire masseria, and our week could not have been more perfect. The pictures on the site do not do the place justice. The property is simply spectacular. No detail is overlooked: the grounds are kept in pristine condition, the pool is dreamy and super-clean, the rooms are perfection (all rooms are different, but there is simply no "bad" room), and the bed, towels, and linens are wonderful.

The location is fantastic. You're a couple minutes drive (or 10 minute bike ride) to gorgeous Castro Marina, the charming town center of Vingnacastrisi, and many other villages (if exploring is your thing).

The staff–AnnaRita, Donato, and Roberta–truly understand customer service. Dinner , beach club, and boat trip reservations were arranged for us. Breakfast every day was delicious, and our requests (more arancia cake!) were met with a smile. We also had dinner made for us one night at the masseria, which was excellent. AnnaRita and Donato made a feast!

We would not change a single detail and cannot wait to book again!

Indimenticabile!

  • 5 of 5

Un Paradiso nel verde del Salento! Ho trascorso alcuni giorni di vacanza con la famiglia (5 persone) presso questa bellissima struttura, immersa in un parco di ulivi secolari e ideale per alcuni giorni di relax. La struttura è molto curata nei particolari: tessuti di alta qualità e pezzi d'arte abbelliscono ogni angolo. Stupendo il tavolo in zona piscina ricavato da un antico portale di un monastero cinese. Pulizia e gentilezza del personale fanno di questa struttura una masseria di charme di livello molto alto. Indimenticabile! Ci torneremo appena possibile!

Vacanza indimenticabile

  • 5 of 5

Ho trascorso con il mio compagno una vancanza assolutamente indimenticabile.

La Masseria è meravigliosa; curata in ogni piccolo particolare ed arredata con gusto impeccabile, sia all'interno delle stanze che nelle parti comuni. Le pulizia giornaliere vengono effettuate con cura; il personale è cortese ed efficiente.

Gli ampi spazi garantiscono privacy e relax anche durante il caotico mese di agosto; ma la location è perfetta anche per immeggersi nella movida salentina.

Torneremo sicuramente
