This masseria was wonderful, in every way. Our room was spacious & included some nice treats when we arrived (almonds, peanuts, candy-coated almonds) & we also had 4 complimentary bottles of water in our fridge. There was a thick, high quality white duvet & white sheets & a spacious bathroom. I LOVED the views of the countryside & fruit trees & the little balcony we could sit on.
Breakfast was fantastic! They arrive at your table with a tray full of goodies-- croissants, cakes, breads, cookies (in a bag so you can take them to go if you wish) & a basket of fruit. We requested meats & cheeses & were pleased with a plate of ricotta & fresh burrata! as well as salami & you MUST try their eggs! I am not a huge scrambled egg person but these were creamy perfection.
We had dinner at the restaurant 2 nights because with the Covid restrictions all local restaurants must close at 6 pm. However, guests at the masseria can dine at any time on-site (what a perk!). Beyond that, the food, wine & ambiance was FANTASTIC! This place is not inexpensive, but we had a homemade tagliatelle pasta with sausage meat balls & tomatoes that was incredible. It was so simple & yet outstanding; my son & I couldn't stop raving about it.
There are also MANY animals on this masseria, which my son loved. We befriended the 3 dogs who wander around freely & each day went to the animal area & enjoyed seeing the pigs, chickens, ostrich! & goats. I was a little heartbroken seeing rabbits all crammed in a tiny cage with no room to stretch or even walk.... this is considered unacceptable & cruel in the United States & I'm hoping they do let the rabbits out of that cage at times??
I think one of my favorite parts of this masseria was the way the staff says you can walk around anywhere, explore & enjoy. It made for such a relaxing & welcoming feeling. I also had a couple questions during our stay & could WhatsApp text them & they would respond within moments.
Additionally, I have yet to see any hotel or lodging option go to such strong measures for cleanliness, safety & hygiene; Masseria Montenapoleone followed the protocols to the letter, & then some.
One note: the wi-fi is really poor & spotty. We had 1 "bar" the entire time so it was very difficult to do work, check email, etc.
When we visit Puglia again I will only choose masserias (loved them!) & we will return to Masseria Montenapoleone again. What an extraordinary, special place.

Lovely hotel with spacious rooms, all rooms are different with unique with eclectic look, my room have a small inner courtyard with a Tree swing and shower. Hotel is in the heart of a working farm of olive groves, almond trees along with grapes, they product there own wine (very tasty). Food is good, service attentive and team very helpful. Relax by the pool, wonder around the estate, leisurely lunch in the restaurant or a short drive from the coast or scenic villages...
