Villa Cenci is surrounded by typical Puglia land, made of old olive trees and vineyards. We have been invited to a wedding party. The swimming pool and the green around are fantastic, the buildings are sober and well integrated in the environment, with the shapes of "trulli".the service is kind and careful. You can easily understand the Management is clever... More

We spent one week here as a prelude to my daughters wedding. Everything about the place is wonderful. There is a small main building which has several rooms. We didn't see these but some members of our party did stay there and they all said that the rooms were spacious and very well kept and very clean and comfortable. We... More

We stayed for a week at villa cenci in preparation for our friends wedding, tucked away in the Puglian countryside near Cisternino. A great place, what really makes this place even better is the staff. Elena Greta and Vito took care of our whole party (30 of us) and joined in with us at times. We stayed in one of... More

Spent a week there for easter, we had a room in a typical trullo, which was cozy and clean. It was the first week of opening after winter, so the room was cold on our arrival and it took a day to warm up, but after that it was perfect. Very nice breakfast in the morning, served with a smile... More

We spent 3 nights at Villa Cenci in late Sept / early Oct 2015. We found the expansive property to be very pretty and well maintained. The staff (particularly Umberto, Micheli, Vito, and Topo) were all very friendly and accommodating.

Lovely hotel well placed and comfortable and clean. There was a shortage of amenities such as lotion, shampoo etc. The wifi was almost non existant and only available sometimes and only near or in one building. Staff communication was really bad and lacking in help for the guests. What really floored us was the fact that we were not informed... More

“We paid extra for a superior room and it wasn't particularly exceptional. I'd check out the standard room and the cost difference.”

“Although the Trulli rooms are the most typical and charming option, the new aile has wonderfully cool large rooms and should be considered by those who prefer space to ambiance.”
