Never having been to this part of Italy before it was wonderful to have the advice and suggestions of Douglas and Elizabeth. They knew what was on at the surrounding towns and villages and what historic sites were a must see. The Garden Apartment was well equipped and beautifully fitted out, and the swimming pool and gardens were a delight. I would thoroughly recommend Masseria Due Torre
We are so pleased we decided to stay in Masseria Due Torri for two weeks instead of moving to different places, we found the masseria was so well runned and a relaxing place to stay.
Not only the rooms but the whole masseria is being looked after and constantly upgraded to make your stay confortable.
Douglas and Elizabeth are there every morning to help you plan your day around Puglia, or they are very happy to have you spend the day around the lovely swimming pool or the many cozy and almost private terraces to have lunch or read.
We hope to go back and rent the garden apartment, just to enjoy cooking with the lovely fresh produce you find in the local markets.
