Mr Bob Davison

We cannot endorse this establishment high enough. The staff and ownership were friendly, professional and obviously proud of the very special restoration of these two historic masseria. The undoubtably genuine and accessible Roman ruins are complemented by sensitively enhanced modern accommodation. Impeccable food and beverage offerings are provided by staff who cannot do enough for you. Worth the trip from New Zealand alone.
