Stunning Villa

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic villa! We were a party of 8. Four couples - parents with 3 adult "children" and their partners; all arriving at different times but bedrooms were of equal fabulous standing so no couple felt they'd drawn the short straw. The 12m (mild) salt water pool is fabulous - perfect for floating, playing volleyball or swimming. We were a bit dubious about the salt water at first but all agreed it was far better than a chlorinated pool.

The villa has every conceivable game - poker, scrabble etc and a small selection of books. The kitchen is the best stocked kitchen ever - and we've been renting villas for 20 years. There are enough "lounging" areas to escape others for some quiet time. It was 40 degrees in July when we went and there were, inevitably, mosquitoes in the evening. However, I do recommend Masseria dei Mandorli as a wonderful place to stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely 5 star review. Masseria Mandorli is just made for large groups of families and friends to come together, relax and have fun. We are pleased you made good use of all the games. Mosquitoes can easily be deterred by citronella candles and spray, sold at every supermarket. The outdoor spaces at Masseria Mandorli are delightful, we agree. We at Puglia Holiday Rentals Ltd, look forward to welcoming you back sometime to Puglia.

The Good and Bad: It's Off the Beaten Path

  • 5 of 5

Good News the property is away from the maddening crowds, but you have better honed your driving and navigation skills to get there. Beautiful house and amenities. Well furnished and comfortable.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely 5 star review, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay at Masseria Mandorli and found the house "beautiful." We at Puglia Holiday Rentals love the fact it is out in the countryside down a quiet country lane and yet only just over 5 minutes into the famous white city of Ostuni. Thus giving you the best of both worlds; privacy at home and restaurants, bars and a great town nearby when you want to venture out.

Ideal family villa

  • 5 of 5

Perfect villa for three families. Surrounded by olive tree groves and almond nut trees the villa is floating between Ostuni and the sea. It is very tastefully decorated with Moroccan theme running through. There were plenty of places to lounge around as a large group both outside and indoors. The bedrooms are comfortable with very modern facilities. The kitchen was a bit on a small side for our group of very keen cooks but exceptionally well stocked. There was several of each items, plenty of knifes, mixing bowls, chopping boards, glasses etc...the best stocked villa we ever stayed in. There are a few mozzies about, but if you keep the doors shut you should be on top of the problem. The swimming pool was a very generous size with a deep end for some inventive diving. Ostuni is well worth a visit, an ancient maze of narrow streets and plenty of restaurants to eat. Overall a fantastic holiday, thank you!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, we are also impressed at how well stocked Masseria Mandorli is, a real home from home and very handy to have 2 kitchens. The Maraccon patio garden has just been finished outside which is something new to add to the continuing theme you mentioned. Mosquitos are not generally a big problem in Puglia and are seasonal. The property does have mosquito nets on all windows. We hope to welcome you back again soon Puglia Holiday Rentals - helping you to make the right choice of rental for you.

Beautiful villa which exceeded expectations.

  • 5 of 5

The villa was beautiful, vary spacious and had a lovely pool. The layout was good with many different places to chill out and relax at different times of the day. Good kitchen, well equipped and the great idea of a separate kitchen by the pool with the BBQ and Pizza oven both of which were frequently used. The table tennis table was also well used.

All rooms had very nice décor and were very clean.

A couple of minor improvements would be the Wifi which could have been faster and was only useable near the router in the kitchen, Also the baby high chair should have straps.

Overall it was a superb villa and I would gladly recommend it

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review. Regarding the high chair, we confirm that our high chair does have straps but they had been taken off! They are now back on the high chair. Wifi in Puglia is generally slower than the UK, mainly because it does not come through a telephone line, but over air via an aerial. It is more than sufficient for emails, social media, surfing etc. The Masseria and outside space is huge and therefore some areas the wifi does not reach. There are plenty of common areas where it does reach. We hope to welcome you back again.

A Perfect Week in Southern Italy

  • 1 of 5

Masseria Mandorli was even better than its great web site promised! Our three-generation family enjoyed a busy but relaxing week--wonderful pool and outdoor space, comfortable bedrooms, kitchen and equipment fine for cooking along with grill and pizza oven (both used to delicious effect). Ostuni nearby and lovely for strolling, exploring and eating (Masseria Il Frantoio and Osteria del Tempo Perso especially), good markets in Martina Franca and Cisternino, excellent fish dinner on our last night at the Lido in Pilone, good beaches nearby--all together, terrific

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful review, however I am sure the one star rating you have given Masseria Mandorli is a mistake given that you say "it was even better than the web site promised". We hope that anyone reading this review can see that this is clearly the case. Stars are not important just the real guest experience shared with you, the reader, who will hopefully become the next very satisfied guest at Masseria Mandorli Masseria Mandorli - just magical.

Luxury and Relaxation in Puglia

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely relaxing time at this villa in Puglia. The villa itself is gorgeous. It was big enough for all 7 of us to have our own space. The pool is big and has a diving board. The outside space has been well thought out with plenty of shade throughout the day and a lovely outside dining area at night. We even tried out the pizza oven after buying pizza dough in Ostuni and we were pleasantly surprised by our results! All the double bedrooms inside are spacious and kept cool with the airconditioning. The location feels remote and you definitely need a car but it really is only 5 minutes drive into Ostuni, which must be one of the prettiest towns in Italy. Highlights were our traditional meal in cooked by Lucrezia and a meal out at Il Fienile. We even managed to sort out a taxi for this night out! Everyone we met was very friendly and we would definitely like to go back, both to Puglia and to this villa!

Masseria Mandorli is set out in the countryside of Ostuni and enjoys fabulous views of the town in the distance, which looks stunning at night and in the other direction you can see the sea over the old Olive trees. There are numerous beaches available to just pull up and picnic or well catered Lidos with sunbeds, umbrellas and restaurants attached.
