An out of season stay in late May in a room in one of the half dozen or masseria that are scattered around the extensive grounds. The Trulli village looked good but was probably really noisy at weekends when there is invariably a wedding on. Very few people staying which meant the outside pool was a people free zone and the excellent breakfast buffet was a laid back affair with plenty of time to chat with the great staff. Although the dinner was excellent with local specialities on the menu it was expensive so we ate out most nights ( good places within a mile or so). In all a good base to see most of the interesting places in Puglia but you need a car.

We stayed for 2 nights at Borgo Ritella in a room for 3. The rooms are spacious with modern kitchens and bathrooms, comfy beds, and rustic touches to the decor. Very pretty. What is not shown on the pictures is the fabulous view over Fasano - lovely by day, and by night too. Although the hotel is in a quiet spot, it is only 5 mins drive from Fasano, and the guy at check in (who spoke about as much English as we did Italian! But we got by...) gave us some great recommendations for restaurants. Breakfast was good, staff friendly, decent speed wifi, clean rooms - and the on site pool was immaculately cared for - if a little bracing when you first get in! Overall, I would highly recommend and would not hesitate to return if in the area, perhaps to a 4 bed apartment as they come with a lounge area.
Stayed here for 2 nights while touring araound Puglia. Hotel looked as though it has been recently refurbished to a very high standard, everything clean, new and beautifully designed. It does have a restaurant attached but no bar and we would have liked to be able to sit out in the pleasant garden. Breakfast service was VERY slow but otherwise good.
NB The instructions for finding the hotel are INCORRECT as Google has misplaced the hotel on the map. It is actually about 2 - 3 km outside Martina Franca on the Via Taranto.
"The perfect location to just chill out in peace."
Superb quite location where you can relax, and chill out in total comfort. The hotel is maintained to a very high standard with immense attention to detail. The staff are polite, and helpful. You are treated as if you are one of their family, nothing is too much trouble.
We would certainly go back again without any hesitation.
Famous for the prehistoric beehive-shaped huts that line the streets, Alberobello is an unusual tourist attraction and a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. Locals reside in some of the quaint buildings, known as trulli, and others have been converted into shops and restaurants. The town really comes alive in the summer evenings when everyone emerges for the lively passeggiata.
