Il Frantoio seems to be one of those perfect places and it is definitely one of our favourite accommodations in the whole of Puglia.
Set in 70 hectares of olive groves and poppy fields, just outside the beautiful town of Ostuni, this sixteenth-century masseria not only has it’s own antique olive press but also produces the ingredients that Rosalba Ciannamea transforms each evening into a 10 course gastronomic voyage of discovery. The scent of orange blossom floats over the huge tree lined stone courtyard, where guests dine at candlelight on warm summer nights.
The interiors are filled with carefully selected antiques and the decoration of the eight rooms, which still have their original wooden floors, is tasteful to the highest degree. In the morning a you will be rewarded by a full lush breakfast, which includes a dazzling selection of homemade jams, bread and cakes. All this combined with Armando and Rosalba’s unrivalled hospitality. All in all, it gives this place it’s own very special touch.
On the down side, it may not have a swimming pool, but guests instead have the chance to make the most of two beautiful beaches on the nearby Adriatic coast. Others might simply want to venture out into the surrounding landscape, unspoiled, inspiring and culturally rich as it is.

A lovely place to stay in Spring
Date of stay 01/04/2019
We used the Masseria as a place to stay from which to explore and experience Puglia.. it was perfect in every way. A privilege to learn about the agricultural history of the area with the help of very friendly staff who were clearly proud of their heritage. The food and wine experience was special and of very high quality. The setting in the olive groves with all the spring flowers in bloom was magical. The location perfect for driving out to all parts north, south, and coastlines was good. We liked the quiet location outside of busy Ostuni. Others might not.

Staying at the Masseria was an all around lovely experience. We stayed there for 6 nights in a beautiful and welcoming environment with spectacular food and wonderful service. I would have loved to have the chef come to NYC and open her own restaurant!!! Of course she couldn't bring all the fresh vegetables from her farm garden though! Everything she made was exceptional. What a treat! Additionally, their products are wonderful.
