masseria fondo paolo is simply the perfect place where to spend a lovely stay in Salento. ideally located on hour car trip from Brindisi Aeroporto and in between Lecce and Otranto and the best beaches in both coasts. The masseria, however, is so beautifully decorated and has got such a gorgeous swimming pool that it is a pity not to live it all day long.
margherita and the staff are so available and discreete at the same time.
Highly highly hogly recommended.
Quaint villa in the countryside of Puglia
Margherita's villa is perfect for travelers who want to stay outside of the busy cities during their holiday. The unique layout and charming property allowed us to fully relax, listening to the sounds of cicadas and enjoying the gentle breezes through the olive vineyards. It's very quiet in the evening and the nearest modern city, Lecce, is an easy 25 min drive from the house. Often times we found ourselves lounging poolside or under the shade of an olive tree during the hot afternoons and driving about an hour south to Santa Cesare Tereme or Castro a bit later in the day to have a swim in the sea. The dining options nearby are limited but the nearest town, Martano, is small and quaint with a few cafes, supermarkets, and local fruit stands to buy fresh produce and food, which can be cooked at home in the large open kitchen. Communication was amazing and anytime we needed anything Margherita was quick to respond and offer helping suggestions.
Outside 5 stars, Inside 2 stars
This house almost needs two reviews, one for the outside (5 stars) and one for the inside (2 stars).
The outside space is wonderful, so beautifully well kept and elegant. It is clear that lots of time and energy are spent on the pool and the gardens. The pool is wonderful and clear and an absolute delight to swim in.
However, some of the inside space is a completely different story. If you are willing for minimal comfort then you will be fine. No proper blinds on the windows, basic quality sheets and towels, no duvets and only very light blanket … It is rather monastic.
We had a very big problem with one of the double rooms, away from the main house. Built in the shade, it was so incredibly damp that it was impossible to sleep in and we had to vacate it. When we asked if there was any solution, such as a dehumidifier, we were told to keep the windows and doors open and to leave the air-con on to get rid of the terrible smells that were seeping up into the room. The housekeeper (who was lovely) knew it was a problem but as she said, there was not much that could be done. It may be that in the very hot months of July and August the damp is not a problem but it was certainly a problem during a hot May bank holiday.
Other little comments: Kitchen equipment is looking old and can do with a refresh; TV did not work (or we could not get it to work); no visitors handbook was provided with instructions or advice and the sun loungers will soon need to be replaced.
In conclusion, if you want a simple base, set in a beautiful location, from which to explore Puglia's gorgeous beaches and towns and you are not too bothered by a lack of creature comforts, then this is a good choice. However, if you are looking for to get some great rest and relaxation (and sleep!) then it may be best to look for an alternative.
Great location, fantastic pool, large garden with plenty of grass and a nice house
With the added luxury of private bathrooms this house was perfect for a family holiday.
We visited earlier May - we are lucky with the weather and was swimming in the pool and sea every day.
Nice and beautiful house
Fondo Paolo is a nice and typical Italian house in puglia. There is enough space inside and outside for 10p. Every room has there own bathroom. The pool and garden are beautiful. Unfortunately we couldn’t eat outside because of the weather but there is enough space to sit outside. The house is surrounded by olive fields. Beautiful! There is a nice village nearby to do some grocery shopping and have a coffee.
Stunning property away from it all
We loved every thing about our stay. The house was perfect for our family and the property was unbelievably beautiful. It's nestled in an olive grove and is so quiet and peaceful. We especially enjoyed watching the sunset each evening from the roof! If you want to be in the middle of it all and walking distance to town, this isn't the spot for you. However, we had a car and it's only a short drive into the town of Martano for groceries, etc.
There seem to be lots of great restaurants nearby as well, but with the well-equipped kitchen and beautiful scenery, we enjoyed eating most of our meals at home on the patio outside. I would recommend getting online to check out the local market schedule. Each day there is typically an outdoor market held in a nearby town. We found that to be a great way to get fresh, local meats, cheese, eggs, produce and snacks like nuts and dried fruits. It was a great excuse to explore the nearby towns. We thought Otranto was lovely and also visited Matera on our way out of town. I'd highly recommend both.
We can't say enough great things about this property. We extended our stay because we didn't want to leave and are already talking about when we can go back! It is great for children as there is a lot of outside space to run around and play and, of course the pool as well. Don't think twice about booking this place...you will not be disappointed!
Tra Otranto e Lecce, Masseria Fondo Paolo si trova nel cuore della "Grecìa Salentina", un'isola culturale, con la sua storia e le sue tradizioni. A causa del suo clima mite, il suo patrimonio artistico, e cibo delizioso, questa regione, nota soprattutto per le sue spiagge di sabbia bianca, è la meta ideale non solo d'estate, ma anche per una vacanza in autunno, inverno o primavera.
