Weather fab, Ostuni as pretty as I remember. Lincoln loved the pool and the adults slowly but surely relaxed as the week went on. The sunsets on top of the villa as always, spectacular. Thank you Robert and Sally for letting us into your special place.
Thank you so much for sharing such a beautiful villa. We have had a lovely time enjoying the outdoor space and the wonderful pool. Antonio has been very helpful with a cheerful smile. Very relaxing place with lots of fun and laughs together. Enjoyed the wine tour and local restaurants. Many thanks
It brough together two families, one from the USA and one from Ireland, reunited after 3 years. We made wonderful memories with our children. Ostuni is an intriguing " White City"; gelato, shopping, 2 fabulous dinners, more gelato!! Picking almonds with the kids, swimming for hours and hours, playing rounds and rounds of Buck Pitch. This villa gave us so many cherished memories, I can only hope we are fortunate enough to return someday. Arrivederci!
We stayed at Masseria Mandorli as a family of four couples and three small children. The venue was all we hoped for and indeed more. The space and shade provided meant there were always peaceful areas to enjoy. The pool, poolside, roof top terraces, large covered sofa area, trellis garden walk to a quiet seat and BBQ areas gave everyone opportunity to enjoy their holiday. We had an outside chef in for three evenings, the highlight being a pizza evening at the pizza oven... described by the family as magical. Jackie at Puglia Holiday Rentals was so helpful advising on properties to suit our need and she got it just right. Thank you to her and all the team including Antonio and the house keeping team. A truly memorable holiday.
We had a great week at Masseria Mandorli. It's a wonderful house and accommodated our five couples beautifully. We particularly loved the gorgeous large pool with ample shaded chaises, the five stylish air conditioned bedrooms with en-suite baths, great well-stocked kitchen for group cooking, large outdoor table for dining, the comfortable shaded porch for socializing and breakfast. Nothing at all we would change. The proximity to Ostuni for shopping, restaurants is a plus, while the privacy and beauty of the location in olive groves is beautifully serene.
