Conversano vicinity: Agriturismo Montepaolo

3km from Conversano on Country Road, Phone: 080.4955087

Reviewed by: Dorit from Israel, review #1877

When: May 2007

Agriturismo in a very quiet, peaceful and isolated area close to Conversano.

We were booked into 2 beautiful rooms with balconies overlooking gardens and countryside. Completely isolated and beautifully quiet and peaceful. The price here was 85 euros for a double, 55 euros for a single.

Our rooms were very nice and large enough. There was one window and another large door that opened up onto a balcony with a beautiful view. The bathroom was spacious and everything was spotless and nicely decorated.

For an extra 20 euros per person, one can choose to have dinner at the Masseria. One of the reasons I chose this place for 4 nights was because of comments by people who raved about the food, the owner, etc. We did not have the same experience.

The food on two nights that we ate here was very good, since those were the two nights that there was either a large party or another table set for about 10 people coming from somewhere just for the meal. So we enjoyed the special foods made for them. On the other two nights, while the food was OK and even tasty, it was nothing really and truly great. The owner, while nice enough, was not even there for two of the four days we spent there. And when she was, she was too busy to give us more than a quick Buona Sera, etc.

It was convenient to have dinner here since the driver could drink wine without worrying about driving and since it was a very narrow country road without lights, it may have been a problem after dinner in the city.

We enjoyed the peace and quiet. We all slept very very well and the staff were enjoyable and accommodating.
