We stayed for 4 nights in Maria suite. The Masseria is located on the top of a hill with lovely views of the countryside and the hillside town of Locorotondo. It is very peaceful and in an idyllic situation. The swimming pool was beautiful, although the water in May was very cold! Our suite was comfortable and reasonably spacious, comprising three rooms in the trulli: bedroom, sitting room and bathroom. There was a patio outside where we had drinks in the evening and watched the sunset. Breakfast was on a patio outside the breakfast room and there were lots of Marta's delicious home made cakes. Three evenings we went to Locorotondo to restaurants recommended by Marta and they were all excellent. But the best meal was the one she cooked for us - it was amazing! Marta is delightful and nothing was too much trouble for her. There are many lovely and interesting places to visit nearby and some really nice beaches, although they are probably pretty crowded in the summer. One day we just sat by the pool and enjoyed the view and then went for a walk in the countryside. The wild flowers were absolutely beautiful, particularly the fields full of poppies. We stayed at four different places in Puglia and the Masseria Serralta was easily the best.
I stayed with my family (2 young children) in this darling, spacious 2-bedroom trullo (like a small house!) at Marta's lovely inn for 2 days over the easter/spring break. It is even more beautiful than in the pictures, as there are little surprises here and there, each one more delightful than the next. One feels as though every tile in the bathroom was well thought out to provide the most aesthetic pleasure. The upstairs bedroom where my husband and i slept was so charming! There is a small door that provides a beautiful view of the valle d'itria below and takes you out onto a huge rooftop deck (thus not safe for young children to sleep upstairs unsupervised)! Marta planned everything thoughtfully from arranging for the kids to sleep downstairs, to preparing special places for them at the breakfast table (with placemats and cups that were more welcoming for children). We could barely tear ourselves away from our trullo and charming locorotondo when it was time to move on to our next adventure.
We stayed in the Sandy suite at Masseria Serralta. It is one of four suites, with Amelia being one of the others. This B & B accommodates its guests in beautifully-restored trulli (round houses with conical roofs that once were used for crop storage. Our apartment was spacious, light and airy with lovely views over the olive groves to Locorotondo. Our host, Marta, was friendly and very helpful in regard to following up queries we had about local places we wanted to visit. The breakfast featured local cheeses, meats and produce. Our two-trulli apartment had a small kitchen so that were able to prepare light meals which we ate in the gazebo on the property. We enjoyed our stay in this masseria and recommend it to couples and families.
