Nestled in its own lush garden of olive groves and palm trees, Villaggio San Giovanni is an ancient farmhouse built in the 14th Century. It belonged to the Spanish Duks D'Ayala Valva, rich landowners! This four-star hotel offers 18 rooms all similar in the decor style but of each in a different colour, elegantly furnished and equipped with a 32inch LCD TV, mini bar, telephone, safe, free Wi-Fi, a hydromassage shower, toiletries and hair dryer. Some also have a balcony or patio. Free parking is available on site. All of this is to make each stay unique and unforgettable! Our guests come to this oasis of rare tranquillity to forget the city and to experience a relaxing retreat kissed by the warm Apulian sun by the side of our family friendly pool. At the sunset it's possible to enjoy the solarium on the terrace in the hydromassage tubs with cromotherapy and relax in the lounge overlooking the city and the sea. There are also tennis and football courts. The restaurant with its six rooms, offers delicious Mediterranean menus as well as national and international specialities. On request we also serve gluten free plates. It is also suitable for meetings and any kind of event. San Giovanni farm nestled in the complex of Villaggio San Giovanni, produces an excellent extra-virgin olive oil and the finest local wines, as Primitivo di Manduria, Chardonnay and Sirah, which represents a coloured and sunny nature. Close to the hotel you can enjoy clear sea water and thin sand beaches, with small bays and Mediterrean scrub framing. And, if you love to dive or fish, there are also wonderful cliffs. If you need, a shuttle bus will bring you to the closest beaches, just 8 km far from Villaggio San Giovanni.

Really beautiful hotel in a 14th century big farm. The rooms are luxurious and very clean (ours even had a big balcony). The restaurant is delicious and they make their own wine that is very good Surroundings do not offer much of a view, though. Big private parking The hotel itself deserves a 5-star rating in our opinion !

Some of the good things: Exceptionally large and clean room with good toiletries, a multi-shower and disposable slippers etc at a fair price which included breakfast. Our room also had a massive sofa (which could probably become another double bed) and comfy chair as well as a desk, air-con and open Wi-Fi connection. We had a mini-fridge and a safe too. We were just about off-season so not all the rooms were taken and I don't know how the various rooms compare, but we had a private shaded balcony/terrace overlooking the pool which was furnished with comfortable seating. This was accessed directly from our room through double doors and had the benefit of a small clothes-rail and pegs for drying swimwear etc. We had brought pool towels with us but the hotel offered these at no extra charge. On the roof were two hot tubs but we didn't get to use these. All round we had very helpful service. Great vegetarian pasta dishes in the restaurant, friendly and courteous staff. Parking was available directly outside. Breakfast was of the continental type rather than strictly Italian - so although there were cakes and pastries there was also plenty of fruit, meats and cheese, yoghurt and cold hard boiled eggs and so on. There was a good long window in which to take breakfast so this would suit both those who need to get off early and those with plenty of leisure. Two reservations: If you are looking to swim early or late I suggest you check that the pool will be open. Clearly this hotel makes most of its revenue from weddings and other celebrations as the number of celebration rooms is out of all proportion to the number of beds. We discovered that the pool area is often booked for weddings etc and so is closed to those in residence. This would have been incredibly annoying as the pool is always a big draw for me! This is the reason that I haven't awarded five stars. Another reservation is the location. Not the village itself but the area around Taranto which is unbelievably flat. This means that the docks/steel/oil and other polluting industrial sites are almost always visible wherever you go. Taranto was, sadly, not a beautiful place to be - though the hotel is nicely tucked away. I knew Taranto had suffered greatly in the past - but was surprised how very worn out and industrial it still was. Obviously if you want to be near to Taranto this place is ideal. If you are on holiday - and Taranto is not important per se - you might like to look elsewhere.

The best place where to chill out.] Good food, very good one, good wine, good landscape and weather, polite and very kind staff. Neatness and elegance are what seems one of the most important for Il Villaggio San Giovanni. I have been told that was one of the best in all Apulia and actually it's true, it is excellent in all its aspects.

I stayed in the hotel for 4 nights and I had 4 dinners. I had a real good time there, quality of accomodation and service are impressive. The restaurant is just amazing (environnement and food) ! If you want to a have calm moment, enjoy good italian food, appreciate a non-intrusive and perfect service, do not hesitate to spend a few days there.
