For the price of the room, there really is not much value. We had a room
in the main house, it was not particularly spacious, had the usual
amenities, is nicely decorated but there was really nothing special. We
had our dinner at the masseria, the food was good and ingredients very
fresh but the meal was marred by one staff who was trying too hard to
animate the dinner and to speak to each table. Instead of a calm dinner
under the stars, I felt the staff's stress running around through
the entire meal. One could feel that he was merely doing his job, not
that he particularly wanted to give the guests his personal attention.
In this case, less would be more and a warm welcome at the beginning of
the meal would be sufficient. If the guests wanted more information they
would ask. To sum up our stay - the service was certainly efficient, not
particularly personal and a bit frantic.
The masseria is very well kept and the grounds are beautiful with a
citrus grove, old olive trees around. Staff is efficient. The masseria
has free access to some beach clubs about 10 minutes drive and the one
we went to had a beautiful view of the coastline.
