Fantastic and Memorable Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Masseria Fondo Paolo is such a lovely quaint place! It really is a home away from home and more. The property is so spacious, airy and has such a homely and welcoming feel to it. The photos are beautiful but they do not capture the feel and the tranquillity of this place.

There were three couples on our one week holiday (11th-18th June 2016). The layout of the bedrooms worked very well as we all had our own space and then congregated in the main house during the day and evening. The grounds are well maintained and so picturesque and the swimming pool is divine.

Andrea, who met us on our arrival was a joy and nothing was too much for him. He answered all our questions and queries promptly! Pamela, Andrea's wife prepared a sensational meal on our arrival. I don't think I've tasted a sugo di pomodoro that delicious (I can still taste it now) and I doubt I ever will.

Margherita, the owner was such a delight; from the time my husband initially enquired about the villa and the day we met her and her wonderful family. Her character and charm resonate throughout this beautiful property.

The accommodation was perfect, the people in Puglia are so kind and welcoming.

We highly recommend Masseria Fondo Paolo and we cannot wait to come back !

Outside 5 stars, Inside 2 stars

  • 3 of 5

This house almost needs two reviews, one for the outside (5 stars) and one for the inside (2 stars).

The outside space is wonderful, so beautifully well kept and elegant. It is clear that lots of time and energy are spent on the pool and the gardens. The pool is wonderful and clear and an absolute delight to swim in.

However, some of the inside space is a completely different story. If you are willing for minimal comfort then you will be fine. No proper blinds on the windows, basic quality sheets and towels, no duvets and only very light blanket … It is rather monastic.

We had a very big problem with one of the double rooms, away from the main house. Built in the shade, it was so incredibly damp that it was impossible to sleep in and we had to vacate it. When we asked if there was any solution, such as a dehumidifier, we were told to keep the windows and doors open and to leave the air-con on to get rid of the terrible smells that were seeping up into the room. The housekeeper (who was lovely) knew it was a problem but as she said, there was not much that could be done. It may be that in the very hot months of July and August the damp is not a problem but it was certainly a problem during a hot May bank holiday.

Other little comments: Kitchen equipment is looking old and can do with a refresh; TV did not work (or we could not get it to work); no visitors handbook was provided with instructions or advice and the sun loungers will soon need to be replaced.

In conclusion, if you want a simple base, set in a beautiful location, from which to explore Puglia's gorgeous beaches and towns and you are not too bothered by a lack of creature comforts, then this is a good choice. However, if you are looking for to get some great rest and relaxation (and sleep!) then it may be best to look for an alternative.

Stunning property away from it all

  • 5 of 5

We loved every thing about our stay. The house was perfect for our family and the property was unbelievably beautiful. It's nestled in an olive grove and is so quiet and peaceful. We especially enjoyed watching the sunset each evening from the roof! If you want to be in the middle of it all and walking distance to town, this isn't the spot for you. However, we had a car and it's only a short drive into the town of Martano for groceries, etc.

There seem to be lots of great restaurants nearby as well, but with the well-equipped kitchen and beautiful scenery, we enjoyed eating most of our meals at home on the patio outside. I would recommend getting online to check out the local market schedule. Each day there is typically an outdoor market held in a nearby town. We found that to be a great way to get fresh, local meats, cheese, eggs, produce and snacks like nuts and dried fruits. It was a great excuse to explore the nearby towns. We thought Otranto was lovely and also visited Matera on our way out of town. I'd highly recommend both.

We can't say enough great things about this property. We extended our stay because we didn't want to leave and are already talking about when we can go back! It is great for children as there is a lot of outside space to run around and play and, of course the pool as well. Don't think twice about booking this place...you will not be disappointed!

THE most tranquil, beautiful, property!

  • 5 of 5

What can I say? The pictures give you a view, but not the right impression. The right impression is 100 times better.

The aircon was a blessing, the tiled floors just exquisite and the kitchen? perfection personified. It did take us 3 days to realise we had a dishwasher though much to the disgust of my children.

WIFI was a nuisance but who cares? We picked fresh figs every morning, saw myriad creates around the abundant grounds, and bathed in a pool that is beyond description in words. Be that as it may I am going to try to describe it.

The pool is unheated, concrete and infinity. It is long, and deep and better than any pool I have used because it is so big. Not wide, but luxurious.

Staff were onsite every morning to chlorinate the pool and take rubbish, and were gone well before we were up.

My teenagers were free to roam, with music on all day every day and still nobody was bothered by it. Shops in Martano were great - and not far. There is a EuroSpin supermarket literally 5 minutes drive away that is 24/7.

The beds were comfy, the towels abundant and though décor is simple THAT is exactly why I picked it. Simple, luxurious, immaculately clean and the oh so little touches that set this property apart from our last holiday where we sent 6 x the price and received the shabbiest standards!

What can I say? Margherita and Andrea (who came to the site and answered any and all questions) thanks so much. You really did US the favour by letting us rent the property and I would happily recommend it to each and any person that has any reservations at all. I was just sorry to come home. And that's a first for me!

Between Otranto and Lecce, Masseria Fondo Paolo is located at the heart of the “Greek Salento”, a cultural island with its own history and traditions. Because of its mild weather, its artistic heritage, and delicious food, this region, known especially for its sandy white beaches, is the perfect destination not only in the summer, but also for an autumn, winter or spring holiday.
