“Fantastic property/facilities, lovely area”
Reviewed 3 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The Masseria is a lovely holiday home and included everything we needed for our stay. The rooms are spacious and very clean.
For my husbands birthday, I arranged for a meal to be cooked for us. This was a wonderful experience and the food was amazing. Daz and Donnatella are a lovely couple and provided this great service and were always available should we need any help or advice.

“Wonderful”
Reviewed 7 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Just returned after a 2 week stay - had a fabulous time - can't say enough good things about this beautiful place.
Das and Donnatella were absolutely superb - cooked us a meal one night and the food lasted for 4 days! So much and so so good- would recommend this to anybody who wants to get away from it all and have peace and quiet.

“Fabulous Holiday Home!”
Reviewed 11 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Our stay at Masseria Casalicchio was absolutely faultless. It was the perfect holiday home. As a party of 8 we had a fantastic family holiday-it's great for families with very young children as we have. The masseria was spotless, well equipped, comfortable and spacious. Darren and Donatella were very hospitable and always available with advise and recommendations for things to do in the local area. The meal they prepared for us was out of this world and plentiful. We had enough leftovers to feed us all for days afterwards! If anyone is hesitant in booking don't be. You won't be disappointed.

Liked best: That there was no disappointments whatsoever! Everything about it was great.
Liked least: There are really no negatives, other than perhaps a fenced off pool would offer more security for families with very young children.

“It's hard to go anywhere else!”
Reviewed 30 January 2015 for a stay in August 2014

This was our third consecutive family trip to the wonderful Masseria and, as ever, we had a perfect holiday. Daz and Donatella are now like old friends, and again went out of their way to look after us. Although we returned to some of our old favourite places (San Stefano beach and the beautiful Alberobello), we explored some new towns and found some new wonderful restaurants. The nearby waterpark and funfair were again popular with the children - there really is something for everyone is this beautiful part of Puglia. We are already thinking about returning for a fourth trip!

“gorgeous”
Reviewed 14 January 2015 for a stay in September 2014

We stayed as two couples with our five grown up children. We absolutely loved the Masseria. It has an elegance and a real comfort, which is tricky to achieve, but here it is in abundance. The bedrooms and bathrooms are great, the beds so comfortable. The nets at the windows were fab - no ghastly mosquitos divebombing! We had that freakish rotten weather the second week, but we were not bored at all. Went for day trips and ate our body weight in fabulous food. The Masseria is kitted out brilliantly and there are beautiful and interesting things dotted around its walls. Darren (Daz) and his lovely wife, were terrifically helpful and kind. We would not hesitate to return. Thanks for a lovely time in your home.
