best quality time
Thanks so much for the best quality time we could imagine.life in Masseria Il Trullino is strange in a way, it passes in true slow motion but flies by like lightning McQueen.
Stefan and Fanny, Belgium
Many, many thanks, for a wonderful stay.
Many, many thanks, for a wonderful stay at your Masseria in Puglia - Grecia Salentina- a fascinating cultural experience for our family.
Great food, wine, vegetables from your garden, especially the tomatoes. I think the field mouse ate all the melons though!
Some amazing places to visit - every little village is a small medieval gem.
two weeks of unbroken sunshine - you would say it is almost the perfect sunshine - we warmed up nicely from London.
We recommend “La Porta Antica” restaurant in Sternatia for excellent meat.
Ciao! See you soon and looking forward to contributing to the guestbook in the future.

This is paradise.
If I was now asked to describe paradise, it would be easy having just experienced it.
Andrew and Cristina, London, August 2011
Tips: We rented a boat in Sant'Andrea to explore unspoiled beaches.
A wonderful experience.
First of all beautiful house. I loved every bit of it but most of all my room. If I could take it with me it would have been the first thing I packed in my bag.
Thank you very much for the lovely time, I really enjoyed it a lot.

Tips: I bought some lovely handmade towels for my mum at Tesseria Giaquinto in Otranto, close the Aragonese Castle.

Qui si gode!
We enjoyed a very relaxing holiday in this true Puglian masseria! A really quiet place in between the olive trees with all comfort and services, also for kids. A great location to discover the Salento region with its amazing coast line and typical Italian villages.
We felt at home from the moment we arrived!
Saartje and Sven.
We loved the villa.
Thank you for a wonderful start to a great Italy trip! We loved the villa and all it had to offer. Best, Mary Ann Been
We stayed at the wonderful villa for 2 weeks. Beautifully located in a quiet and peaceful setting. Fabulous home and very well equipped. Cannot recommend highly enough. Local town is full of surprises - delightful bar and restaurant in the Square. Local bakery, food shopping all excellent. Weekly market in Martano definitely worth a visit. Many local places to go - especially perfect is Lecce - every street is full of stunning buildings. Food - we ate in many local towns and all were wonderful. Beach - you do need to drive but not far. The public beach in Alimini is very good and the local beach bar has fabulous fresh calamari and delicious bruschetta. All perfect.

Paola, we had a good holiday with the hot water being the only blemish- it didn't work about 30% of the time. Luigi was outstanding and we found everyone he introduced us to, unfailingly friendly polite and helpful. Indeed we found everyone we interacted with in shops/bars etc also helpful, despite a two way language barrier.
Both Giuseppe and Simone were excellent and as described. They were both easy to have around. Simone's starter- a sort of prawn based souffle was exceptional.
The children loved the playground and little garden.
Mike Smith, United Kingdom
A great time had by all.
What a place. Living in an olive grove isa real honour and seeing the kids running wild makes everyone happy.
Puglia is a very warm place, with welcoming people ready to help everyone.
Avete una masseria meravigliosa che vi invidio moltissimo!!!!
Per quanto riguarda i suggerimenti..ci è mancato il codice della cassaforte e forse, essendo appassionati di cucina, vi potrei suggerire di migliorare l'attrezzatura della cucina.
I nostri barbecue sono stati indimenticabili come la vista dalla terrazza al tramonto e i tuffi in piscina. Gentilissime le signore delle pulizie.
Grazie per l'ospitalità, saluti.
Had a great time
We had a great time at your masseria. We had fun, ate lots of good food and drank excellent wine.
Only one observation, we have found the water of the swimming pool a bit too cold.
