Hey from Tommaso

Member since January 2010 | 42,498 hits
Tommaso and Renata, we live 6 months per year in Salento (the special italian area that caught us some years ago) and the other 6 months in Milan, were we have been living and working in the past and where our sons, already near to 30th., now live. We loved to travel and, probably also for this reason, we hope to give to our guests every thing we were looking for during our trips and to avoid what we didn't appreciate. That's the reason why we often feel fine with our guests. Waiting for you!

Siamo stati benissimo! Tommaso e Renata sono dei padroni di casa fantastici e la struttura è un luogo autentico di storia, pace e relax! La masseria si trova in una posizione ottima per girare i vari paesini del Salento: 10 min da Otranto e 30 da Lecce e Gallipoli. Consiglio a tutti qualche giorno in questa struttura se si vuole stare lontani dal caos cittadino ma al contempo essere vicini ai maggiori punti di interesse! Alla prossima e grazie di cuore!

The answer from the host:
Grazie cari, è stato un vero piacere conoscervi anche se per un periodo (3 gg) troppo breve. Il nostro lavoro diventa più facile e più piacevole quando abbiamo ospiti disponibili e sorridenti come voi. Speriamo vi sia piaciuto il Salento e vogliate tornarci. Alla prossima, Tommaso e Renata.

Grazie Maria Chiara e grazie a tutti voi. La. vostra simpatica compagnia, la vostra competenza ed entusiasmo ci mancano. Sentirsi come a casa, in un contesto così particolare come. la nostra Masseria, è sempre stato un nostro obiettivo. Speriamo. di reincontrarvi presto. Tommaso e Renata.

Location molto bella e pulita. in ottima posizione per visitare tutti i bellissimi luoghi del Salento. Gli host sono molto disponibili e gentili. Sicuramente consiglieremo la masseria ai nostri amici e ci ritorneremo molto volentieri.

The answer from the host:
Carissimi grazie per i vostri positivi commenti. Siamo lieti di avervi dato un angolo di tranquillità e ristoro anche nella settimana più complicata dell'estate. Un abbraccio anche al piccolo Christian Tommaso e Renata.
Property: 9 | Cleaning: 10 | Host: 10 | Location: 8 | Price/Quality: 10 | Breakfast: 9
Il clima familiare che i coniugi gestori Renata e Tommaso sanno trasmettere agli ospiti rende da subito piacevole il soggiorno. La posizione è strategica per ogni escursione nel Salento, garantendo al rientro della sera la tranquillità e il silenzio che permettono di rielaborare le intense emozioni paesaggistiche e culturali offerte da questo lembo di terra pugliese. La colazione, sempre curata dalla presenza dialogante dei gestori, diventa un momento comunitario per condividere gli itinerari che ciascun gruppo intende affrontare nella giornata. Ad un prezzo contenuto in una struttura completamente rinnovata e con i servizi necessari. Una masseria che consigliamo a tutti anche per scoprire e visitare i 12 granai!

Carissimi, grazie per la vostra recensione. Siete stati una splendida e indimenticabile compagnia, anche per la serata di festeggiamenti per l'Italia da voi incoraggiata. A presto Tommaso e Renata.

Siamo stati bene. I proprietari sono cordiali e la struttura rappresenta un bel recupero di un edificio storico. Tuttavia è imprescindibile l'uso dell'auto in quanto nelle vicinanze c'è poco e il mare più vicino dista almeno 15 minuti.
stayed from 07/05/2021 to 07/11/2021
The answer from the host:
Grazie per i vostri commenti positivi. La ristrutturazione di questa Masseria aveva in effetti lo scopo di far assaporare a chi viene da altri territori il fascino e la storia di questo bellissimo lembo di Sud. Tommaso e Renata.

Ottima posizione per muoversi nel Salento, antica Masseria di gran fascino, ottimo rapporto prezzo/confort, da ritornare.
stayed from 06/27/2020 to 06/30/2020
The answer from the host:
Grazie per il gradito commento e scusate per il ritardo della risposta. Siamo sempre felici di vedere come molti viaggiatori apprezzino la semplicità e il confort della nostra Masseria pensata proprio per dare relax e godimento di questo territorio. Speriamo allora di rivedervi presto. Tommaso e Renata.

Struttura molto bella e curata. Tommaso e Renata molto gentili e disponibili, tutto molto pulito ed accogliente. Posizione abbastanza strategica per girare nei dintorni. Necessita l’auto. Da consigliare o tornare.

The answer from the host:
Grazie Carla, a te e a tutto il gruppo. Certo il periodo di agosto non è ideale per godersi le magnifiche spiagge e i costoni e faraglioni dei nostri mari, ma avevate lo spirito giusto per trovare comunque i posti belli. La vostra compagnia è stata un piacere e anche il sottofondo di chitarra ci mancherà. Al prossimo barbecue Tommaso e Renata.

Siamo stati solo due notti ma meritava un soggiorno più lungo, vista anche la posizione che consente di raggiungere agevolmente tantissimi posti del Salento. Tommaso e Renata sono due persone squisite e Tommaso ci ha dato indicazioni utilissime di bei posti non affollati e da visitare. Consigliatissimo.
