We booked for 18 people (including 5 children from 3 to 14 years old) to celebrate our father's 80th birthday and we had a wonderful week: great welcome from catia, tranquility of the place, pleasant and spacious rooms, large swimming pool and paddling pool for children, proximity of the beautiful beaches and cities to visit by car, varied breakfast with fresh fruit, dairy juices, rusks bread and delicious homemade cakes, dinner on top: fresh, varied, complete and copious with typical dishes... we enjoyed it!
Everyone had a great time, both young and old. We all felt at home in this beautiful place and surrounded by these beautiful people.
Thanks again to catia and her family, waiters, maintenance staff and cooks... for their kindness, their small and big attention to us and their very successful and appreciated adaptation to our gluten-free and vegetarian diets it was really great! We will be back with great pleasure!

Here we are back after 10 days spent in this magical reality...
As soon as you arrive it seems to enter a context out of time where peace and quiet reign, it takes a day to adapt to this dimension and find yourself immersed in total relaxation.
The kindness of Catia, her family and the staff who work there, is a wonderful setting for all this and feeling pampered certainly does not hurt the spirit ...

Hi, I am Catia and I am 53 years old.
This is me and my family, Giuseppe , Elisa , Marika
I have been working here for 17 years with my family.
As well as we cook for the guests.
It was a desire to to meet new and interesting people all the time which led me to run an agriturismo.
Our guests' favourite thing about Masseria Bellanova is the warm family welcome.
