We stayed for one week in September as a family with a 9 month old baby. It was our first family holiday abroad and we were thoroughly spoiled! The owners were so helpful with all communications beforehand and made us feel totally at ease, they were also very understanding when we arrived pretty late at night from our evening flight and always made sure we had everything we needed - including a lovely box of toys for our little one! We stayed in the ground floor apartment, it was absolutely stunning! The kitchen has everything you need (we cooked in most nights with having a little one) and the living room/dining area was lovely and cool (it was a major heatwave when we were there). The bathroom was lovely, great shower and bath and the bedroom was very peaceful and comfortable.
The grounds were unbelievable, so picturesque and we enjoyed wandering around and exploring the landscape. The pool was amazing! We were incredibly lucky to have it to ourselves most days! We spent hours in and around the pool, playing on the swing and it was just a few quick steps back to the apartment when it got too hot, or dark!
The BBQ outside was great, we enjoyed using that a few times and a particular highlight was the fantastic mini shop that the owners offered, right next to the apartment! Filled with local produce and homemade goodies, we stocked up daily from there (especially the prosecco which was wonderful!)
One little thing to watch out for is the mosquitos, they dined out on us every night (take lots of repellant - or buy it from the little shop!) but that's to be expected that time of year and the owners helped us to deal with them as best we could!
They also supplied us with loads of helpful maps and details of places to visit, we had a car (essential) and hardly had to travel far at all for beautiful beaches and villages, with wonderful sights and of course... Food! Most places in the area didn't serve pizza at lunchtime (what?!) but a village just down the main road did, so we visited regularly! The ice-cream everywhere was amazing... Obviously, it's Italy!
Altogether an absolutely amazing stay, stunning property and wonderful hosts - thank you!
Stayed here for 2 weeks with my wife and 2 boys (8 & 6) in the self-catering apartment - had an absolutely fantastic time!
The owners were very helpful with suggestions for places to go and explore, a mine of information about local festivals and organised a very enjoyable pizza-making evening with the other guests (my boys loved this). Masseria and grounds are beautiful and it was hard sometimes to pull ourselves away from the pool.
Really enjoyed our stay in Puglia - superb food and wine, great restaurants, interesting places to visit with world-class ice cream and plenty of beaches. Definitely a bit cheaper than some other parts of Italy.
Very sad to leave, would love to come back - no hesitation in recommending Masseria Due Torri, it was a great base for our holiday.
We are a family of 4 with children aged 7 and 8 and in our opinion masseria due torre was perfect. Ideally located close to many attractions and amenities, although having a car would be a great advantage. The owners were the perfect hosts making sure we were comfortable and happy, you could see they took great pride in their wonderful property and business. Although the masseria was full it always felt very calm and tranquil, relaxing by the pool on one of their hammocks whilst the kids splashed around or perhaps taking a stroll on the grounds and picking a few prickly pears .... Perfect!
We enjoyed a wonderful relaxing holiday at Masseria Due Torri. The property is comfortable, has all the amenities expected and more. The pool is a good size and very well maintained. The grounds of the property are extensive and private.
Monopoli is a short 10 minute drive and other local towns and villages are easily accessible.
Douglas and Elizabeth could not have been more helpful and their pizza making evening was a great success with the children and grown-ups.
Highly recommended for a relaxing holiday, exploring Puglia and ice-cream at Café Roma.
The masseria has extensive private gardens surrounded by farmland with the most beautiful views. There are many terraces some with sea views. Shady and sunny areas in which to relax. Many tables and chairs. Hammocks in the trees. The Masseria's private outside swimming pool measures 14x7mtrs and is heated by the sun. Available to all our guests. Opening times depend on the temperature but usually end April to mid November. It is surrounded by a large terrace and lawns furnished with luxury sunbeds and tables. There is a barbeque and a wood fired pizza oven. Outdoor games. An outdoor toilet and 2 showers. Ample secure parking.
There is a wide range of beaches from sandy bays to rocky coves. Coastal walks to enjoy the beautiful fragrances of wild thyme growing amongst the rocks. There is a mixture of private lidos (require a small charge) or public beaches. The nearest is 10 mins. drive away in Monopoli. There are many facilities bars, restaurants, sunbeds, chairs, tables, sunshades etc. Sports facilities, playgrounds and water sports. In the late evening many of the lidos become disco's every night of the week.
Golf at Savelletri about 15 mins. drive.
