“Armando Balestrazzi’s ‘crazy’ idea to leave stressed corporate life in Bari and move to the country resulted in the wonderful Frantoio, a masseria with a genuine, country feel. An extraordinary collection of furniture, objéts and memorabilia fills public spaces and the 13 pretty bedrooms, housed in the 16th century farmhouse built around a bougainvillea-filled courtyard. Fruit, veg and herbs from the garden are used in fabulous multi-course meals prepared by Rosalba, Armando’s wife. House policy; no TVs in the rooms and no pool.
Hotel Guru guest comment "Charming and homely with exceptional food at dinner and breakfast."”
