Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful villa and the gardens and pool are well maintained with the pool being cleaned daily. The interior is rustic and original but the bathroom is modern and clean. There are two bedrooms and the beds are comfortable. I would suggest new pillows would be in order as the ones we had were pretty poor. There is plenty of crockery and pots and pans for cooking and the kitchen is fit for purpose. Although there is a gas hob, there is no oven but it was fine for our needs. There is WiFi but it is very temperamental dependent where in the villa you are.

The villa is looked after by Salvatore and his wife Rosie who visit the villa daily from their villa next door to clean the pool and remove any waste. Although they can’t speak English and our Italian was non existent, we managed to understand each other by way of a smattering of French, Spanish, google translate and sign language. You can opt for Salvatore and Rosie to make you a meal, which costs 14.5 euros per adult, which we did. The meal which included wine was lovely. Salvatore recommended a restaurant called Amelie in nearby Maglie, which was superb.

The villa is in a great location being only 20 minutes or so by car from Lecce and Otranto and 45 minutes from Leuca at the very tip of the heel where we went on a boat trip.

Communication was very good from Alessio and the friendly engaging nature of Salvatore and Rosie was superb. Thanks for a great stay.

Rustic oasis

  • 3 of 5

We have agonised about the star rating for this property as some aspects were definitely 5 stars while others fell well short. We feel with a little bit more investment this property could easily achieve 4 to 4.5 stars. We hope our review is honest and fair and helps to inform future guests and Alessio the owner.

The outside area is magnificent- 5 stars. Beautiful garden, lovely swimming pool, although no shallow end. All extremely clean and well maintained. The property is situated in a quiet area within easy driving distance of a number of towns and attractions. Nearby in Corigliano is an award winning restaurant (ask Salvatore) which is well worth a visit.

The bathroom is 5 stars. Modern, well decorated, clean and plenty of hot water.

The bedrooms are probably 2 to 3 stars depending on how many are in the party. Beds were comfortable although pillows were not adequate. Lumpy and thin. Access to the bathroom was via the other bedroom.

The kitchen was disappointing, 2 stars, although spacious and clean, did not provide the quality I would expect when renting holiday accomodation. The equipment was old and obviously very used. There was no kettle or oven and the wooden frying pan handle allowed the pan to rotate which could have lead to a nasty accident. We like to cook and so this may not be relevant to those who like to eat out a lot. The property claims to have a washing machine but it doesn't.

However Salvatore and Rosy, the caretakers are a huge plus, 5 stars++

They keep the property extremely clean and are eager to comply with any request. They provided a delicious meal on arrival for norminal price and this was far more than we could eat. They do not speak English but we managed in German and French with a smattering of Italian!!

Having said all this, we had a fabulous time and were reluctant to leave. We like rustic but like a little more luxury in kitchen equipment and pillows.

Finally Alessio is very easy to contact, responding quickly to any requests for information. Not having to pay the final instalment until we arrived also helped to give us peace of mind.

Owner's Response: I thank you very much for the excellent comments you have given us for the great part of the structure. Any advice on how to improve our villa is always kept in great consideration. I have already asked Salvatore to immediately buy new pillows and new pots, to be able to cook safely, unfortunately we did not notice the problem. Thank you for reporting it. In this winter 2016 we have renewed the bathroom you really loved, the kitchen is planned to be renovated in winter 2017. The washing machine is not present in the villa, it is also written on the site, is replaced by a service done by Rosy 10 € washing, drying and ironing, 5kg laundry. My wife says that even for women are on vacation, and they do not have to wash and iron! We hope you can have our guests again next year, and following your tips, maybe we will have the next 4 or 4.5 stars fly.

"To be quite honest,

The entire family was over the moon with the masseria and the Grecia region.

The only minor negative aspect I can think of is that there is no door between the bedrooms.

Thanks to Salvatore and Rosy we felt very welcome indeed.

We certainly consider returning.

Bruno & family"

You can also ask and confide in any suggestion about good restaurants, having shopping, buy furnitures, beautiful seasides,…. At the end of the greeting operation, Salvatore and Rosy will leave and will leave you free in the Masseria.

The Masseria is surrounded by Salento’s olive trees. It’s 20 minutes of car to reach the sea. It’s builth in Corigliano d’Otranto land, in the serenity of the country but only 2 km far from the village full service centre. Due to a strategic position that collocate Masseria in the middle of the region, you can reach everyone of the numerous beautiful Salento’s beaches an any important location (Lecce city,…) in only 20-25 Km travel.
