Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My experience at this hotel was great the pool was amazing it looks amazing inside and out, John Franco and Sarah were also very helpful with advice and tips for what do to and what not to do they were also helpful with anything else that we needed help with.The only thing that others should know about is there is no wifi in the rooms, there is everywhere outside but not in the rooms, accept one of the rooms near the entrance.

We just spent 4 nights in this wonderful place. So many things to enjoy about it, all made even better by the wonderfully warm and knowledgeable hosts. I highly recommend this place for anybody looking to get the most of their experience in Valle D'Itria and who appreciate a laid back, quiet and personal touch.

We stayed for nights and loved Genovese. Superb staff, clean rooms, good food, welcoming and relaxed vibe, great pool, authentic Masseria decor, peaceful location. Close to Ceglie Messapica and Ostuni if you want to visit a bigger city.

We stayed at Masseria Genovese for four days in the middle of a three-week trip to Puglia, and it was the absolute highlight for us. The property is beautiful—it is a lovingly restored 500-year old farmhouse, set in olive groves, and located down narrow country roads about 5-10 minutes’ drive from the lovely hilltop town of Ceglie Messapica. The rooms (in converted stables!) are extremely comfortable; the pool is fabulous with plenty of places to relax in sun or shade; the gardens and landscaping are gorgeous. Our hosts, Gianfranco and Sara, were absolutely delightful and could not do enough for us. Sara makes a delicious breakfast spread every morning (complete with wonderful pastries, fresh figs and apricots from their trees, cheeses, meats, spreads, etc.), which we ate outside on the long table in the garden. Gianfranco took us to see the nearby mozzarella factory on his early morning run to pick up cheese for the breakfast, and we got to taste warm, fresh mozzarella that had come from a cow milked hours earlier—incredible! We used the Masseria as a base for exploring the Valle d’Itria. It is pretty easy to get to places like Alberobello (very touristy; only worth a quick stop); Locorotundo (loved it—a beautiful village not to be missed); Ostuni (lovely and definitely worth seeing, but be aware that there are tons of stairs); Cisternino (very nice); and Martina Franco (didn’t like as much as the others, but worth going for the restaurant Mehta). It is also easy to hang out at the Masseria during the day and go to explore these towns and eat there when it’s a bit cooler and when the towns come to life in the early evenings. Ceglie Messapica also has lots of good restaurant options. We also enjoyed borrowing the Masseria’s bikes and exploring the local country roads, petting the friendly resident horses, and taking tons of photographs of this beautiful place. I would go back to Masseria Genovese in a heartbeat. We miss it already! Thank you, Gianfranco and Sara, for a truly memorable stay.

Beautiful old stone farmhouse complex done up very thoughtfully to create a fabulous modern holiday destination in the middle of Puglia with easy access to a number of charming surrounding medieval towns. With only eight rooms and a policy of no children or pets, it is a tranquil oasis nestled in gorgeous countryside of meadows and olive groves. There are two stunning courtyards and a pool outside with lots of space to sit and relax in sun or shade. We had seen all the other reviews detailing the amazing breakfast and we were not disappointed. The Messeria is an hour from Bari airport and about 40 mins from Brindisi. It is ten minutes from Ceglie Messapica, fifteen from Ostuni or Cisternino and twenty Martina Franca or Locorotondo. Hosts Gianfranco and Sara were utterly delightful and could not have done any more for us. They started with excellent communication before our arrival, even sending us a location link by Whatsapp on the day of our expected arrival to make sure we didn't have any trouble finding the place. They gave thoughtful local recommendations on cycling routes, sightseeing and dining, and rang ahead to book tables for us.

This walled masseria centuries old, charmingly renovated with a lovely pool that has countryside views, is situated not too far off the road...but far enough that you feel the quiet and are nestled in rolling hills. Gianfranco, our host, could not have been more accomodating and welcoming. He helped with locating a great beach that was quiet, yet had access to a great restaurant. Beaches are quick to get to on both coasts, although the pool is tempting at any time. The rooms are very comfortable, lovely amenities, views vary of the atmospheric courtyards, or across the hills... air conditioned if you need it, but cooled by the thick walls. All is tastefully decorated with antique pieces and modern, in artistic juztaposition. I was in love with the breakfast room. Breakfast was a delight for the senses, with local delicacies of cured meats, cheeses, pastries, fresh juicy fruits of the region, an assortment of freshly juiced fruits and coffee, espresso, and teas waiting for you every morning. In an airy open room, the hostess will help guide you to a great day of sightseeing and Gianfranco has many suggestions to enhance your stay in this really fascinating area of Italy. It is my kind of trendy, ages old architecture, modern amenities, local foods, real people, a true Puglia experience. I will go back!!

The hotel is beautiful and authentic/rustic. The owner Gianfranco is great and could not be more helpful (we arrived very late but he was there and wine and bread, fruit and cheese was in the room for us). The facilities are great with a beautiful large pool. Ideal for a BBQ and there is easy parking for cars. Only 10 mins from the nearest town with lovely restaurants and little streets full of character. Highly recommended and great access to either coast and so its ideal for day trips out.

My husband and I stayed at the Masseria with Sara and GianFranco for 9 days in July and we had the most amazing time. This was our first holiday on the country side and it was all we hoped for (the place was recommended by other family members). We have never been so relaxed in our lives! The Masseria itself is beautiful, very clean and very quiet. It's a 5 minute drive from the town centre which has tons of good restaurant and it's lovely to have a walk at night. You would need a car to get around as there are no taxis. The rooms are big and clean, and they have everything you need. We had a little fridge in our room which was very appreciated. There are fresh towels every day and they can even help you with your laundry if it's needed. The pool is big, clean and the surroundings are breathtaking. Breakfast was very generous and delicious, there was something new every day. The hosts made our trip even better, take some time to get to know them and talk to them! They were so humble and nice, gave us advice on where we should go and what we should visit etc. Gianfranco even helped us plan our days every morning. We would totally recommend this place and we can't wait to be back!

I have travelled around the world, but I will never forget this little gem! Everything was just perfect:from the clean and spacious room, to the authentic masseria itself which was embedded in its history and heritage, to the fantastic home-made breads and other exquisite goodies on offer for breakfast. Special thanks to Gianfranco, who was so helpful and who made our stay memorable...
