This property is a lovely converted monastery with beautiful grounds, clean rooms and a refreshing swimming pool. Not easy to get to unless one has access to a car. The staff is friendly and helpful. Our room did not have internet and there was no place to really hang laundry or wet bathing suits. Breakfast is reasonable and it was delightful to sit outside.

Masseria Montelauro is on the edge of Otranto - not really walkable, but an easy taxi ride. The main building is a solid farmhouse, and contains most of the rooms, reception and a small bar. Outside there are grounds with trees, a pool and a pleasant seating area; a separate building contains the restaurant.

Our room was a decent size, with a comfortable bed and solid rustic furniture. A few more soft furnishings would have made the acoustic a bit less bathroomy. The bathroom itself was adequate, though perhaps beginning to show its age a little. There is WiFi only in the public areas, and it is very slow - as indeed is the mobile phone network.

There is a very good breakfast, with cakes and local specialities, and in the evening the restaurant serves good local food, at the family rather than the chef-y end of the style spectrum.

The staff are excellent: very friendly and helpful, and the whole place has a casual feel, in the positive sense of that expression.

Overall, a good choice if that is the location you want, though perhaps not a place to seek out in a market with severe competition.

A beautiful setting and garden with inviting pool and comfortable rooms. Charming atmosphere, crisp linens, exceptional staff (we were so appreciative that coffee was made for us earlier than the 8am breakfast time!!) Although the rooms are a bit small with no wifi (an inconvenience at best), our greatest challenge was keeping the room cool enough. In late October, air conditioning is turned off, and rooms are warm and stuffy. As there is no window in the downstairs rooms, you must leave your door open all night. Unfortunately, there are 4-5 resident dogs who bark late into the night.....and often during the night. As comfortable as the bed might be, this means little sleep. Several other guests were complaining of the same issue at breakfast. As lovely as the dogs might be, it should be the guests that are considered.

Room tip: Possibly the 2nd floor rooms that face the pool could be quieter.

We all absolutely loved staying here.
The masseria itself is really stylish in a relaxed way, with pretty white on white styled - bedrooms. It has several areas to “gather” as a group, beautiful gardens & a Gorgeous pool .
The restaurant is great, food delicious & sitting underneath the pergola with flowers all around is a treat.
We spent most of the time at the masseria, swimming , relaxing & catching up ( friends re-united ), but the great thing is that this masseria is also very conveniently situated .
We popped into Otranto several times, had a day trip to Lecce, and drove out to other beaches & restaurants . We also made our way over to Castro port - for an afternoon boat trip along the picturesque coastline.
This was a real plus for us, as we wanted to see a bit of the area without doing too much driving .
We also happened to meet a big group of cyclists, who based themselves at the masseria , which proved it to be a good base-point for that as well .
But hands down, one of the best things about the Masseria Montelauro, was the staff. All of them ( without exception), could not have been more friendly or helpful ( with requests made in advance , arranging things for us when we were there , and going above & beyond with special requests made for a birthday celebration, during our stay. )
We fell in love with Puglia & also this wonderful spot . I have no hesitation in highly recommending it!
