This masseria gives you a great feel for the style of life on a southern Italian farm. From the whitewashed central courtyard with a patio shaded by vines to the farm implements and amphorae now used as accents you get to experience a different pace of life. There are vineyards, olive groves, and orchards all around and there are horses in the stables.

The rooms are on the courtyard and have beautiful Ostuni stone ceilings. The restaurant is excellent with a focus on authentic farmhouse cuisine. The wine from the masseria is good too - particularly the Myron.

Our only criticism is that the meals are quite large - four courses (the antipasto being made up of five different plates). It’s too much to do every evening on a multi-day stay, particularly if you’ve had lunch during the day.

We love this part of Italy but always try to visit a different part every time we come. We are not ones for touring around and like to sit back and chill. One of the reasons we chose to stay here was it's reputation for good food. We like to have a glass of wine with a meal so driving out to a restaurant was not an option bearing in mind the drink/driving laws.

Bearing in mind this is a converted Masseria, rooms are quite dark (and cool) and there is no sitting out area. Our room was off the main courtyard with the stables nearby. The shower was a disappointment - a handheld affair over a bath. The bed was comfortable though and it was quiet.

We dined outside most days except for one when rain threatened and we were moved to the dining room inside.The food certainly lived up to expectations and The breakfast was superb (the focaccia was divine) as was the evening meal each night. We enjoyed the house wine so much we had some shipped home! Top marks there.

The pool had a covered loggia to the side with a few seats with cushions (hurrah!) underneath in the shade and sun beds around the pool.

There were seats in the dining area but these were metal -stylish, but incredibly uncomfortable. It was unfortunate for us that a group of friends arrived with their young children so it was a disappointment for me not to be able to find a quiet, comfortable corner to get away and read in peace. There were plenty of quiet corners around the Masseria where a comfy sofa would have been welcome. I hope the owners would consider this.

We have had an amazing, relaxing time at masseria incantalupi. Everything about it was great. The entourage, the service, the quality of food, cleanliness, everything.
The host Mariatheresa is an amazing person; patient, listening and at your service all of the time. The breakfast and dinner are just great, representing the local cuisine in a fine manner. Also the setting of the restaurant is just beautiful. We loved it and certainly recomend this place.

We had a lovely stay at Masseria Incantalupi in Puglia. It's a fantastic farm / ranch that's been converted to provide accommodation. The rooms are great, large with stone floors and the regionally traditional 'star' stone vaulted ceilings. Well appointed with A/C, WIFI (everything you'd expect at a nice hotel). The setting is a traditional square building with courtyard in the centre where they've setup the dining area under vines - or you can eat inside if you prefer.

It is a little remote, you need to drive there, but it's close to small towns and 25 minute drive from Brindisi airport. The east coast is about 10km away, it's nice but a bit rocky. West coast a little further - about 40 minute drive to Porto Cesareo but worth it for incredible, calm, shallow beach with golden sands and sparkling turquoise sea. I cross checked the map on the website with our satnav and we had no problem finding the place but some other guests had a bit of difficulty.

There's a great pool just next to the orange grove. They have a working stable where you can ride (we didn't). The place is teeming with life, fruit is everywhere, there are horses, lizards, bees, dogs (all very friendly). You need to use insect repellent in the afternoon / evening if you're not a local, take that as a rule for everywhere! I forgot one evening and got a couple of bites.

The food is fantastic, everything is locally sourced - most of it is grown on the farm. They have their own label wine, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, honey, all sorts of preserves, cosmetics (though I think that is off site made with their olive oil). They were very accommodating with us for dining options with our toddler, we are pretty easy to feed though. Visitors should be aware that it's a fixed menu for lunch and dinner. We all loved the food but it's probably not ideal for fussy kids (you won't get chicken nuggets and chips). Breakfast was also fab - choice of eggs, cold cuts, cheese, breads (homemade white / brown and focaccia). Loads of different fruit and preserves and cakes.

The best part about staying at Incantalupi is the people. Mariateresa (owner / manger) cannot be more friendly or helpful. She helps us with advise on trips out including calling venues for us, advising good places for us to eat and sorting discounts, charming our baby and giving her toys to play with. The rest of the staff are also very attentive and helpful. Guests should understand that this isn't a large city hotel teaming with bored staff. Everyone has a role and you get a much more personal experience, they are very proud of their place and the service they provide. If everyone arrives for dinner at the same time, a little patience may be needed, just relax and enjoy the fantastic surroundings. We can't recommend Masseria Incantalupi enough!

We ate at Masseria Incantalupi as invited guests. We stayed at Masseria Zambardo, a closeby property owned by the same family.
The location is stunning, very private and away from the main roads. The three course meal was superb, we were told by the owner that all the food was either grown or reared within a mile of the property with exception of the San Normando salami which came from three miles away. The wine was also produced on the property and was fantastic. The price of the meal was minimal for the food and experience that we received, well worth a visit either to eat or stay.
