Agriturismo Lama San Giorgio

Reviewed 18 October 2017

Getting out of Bari and its surroundings by bike was a nightmare. The welcome and peace of the Masserie was so welcoming, there was fresh water in the reception area and the staff could not have done more to help us, thank you so much. We stayed in the new rooms by the pool, the décor is minimalist and suits the climate. A very good stopover

Due to a death in my family I had to change a reservation at this Agriturismo Lama San Giorgio over a week in advance, reducing my stay by a few days (I was well within my rights via booking.com). I am still fighting to get my money back - correspondences are grinding, receptionists pretends not to understand English and are blocking refund via booking.com. On top of the family grievances, this has been a deeply troubling experience.

As for the place: rooms are clean, but the pool is very small and has short opening hours.

Room Tip: just don't go

We arrive on a Saturday afternoon at the end of June after a 6 hour drive from Rome airport (long story!). We were greeted by a friendly English speaking local from Rutigliano who welcomed us to the agriturismo. We were taken to our room which was in a gated area away from the main building where the pool was which was a great shout as it had more of an air of peace and quiet. Excellent room finished to a great standard, one big room with a bathroom attached and a back door opening out onto a shared yard area with a table and chairs. The room had air con, a TV and a massive wardrobe for our clothes. Excellent bathroom with a jacuzzi tub and shower. The pool area was great, not a particularly long pool but I didn't go to Lama san Giorgio to practice for the Olympics! Plenty of sun loungers and two covered awning type places if the sun was too hot. The pool area had an indoor gym as well with two showers but it perhaps was unfinished as it only had an exercise bike in it, but again I add I didn't choose the agriturismo so I could exercise.

The restaurant in the main building was great, the breakfast in the morning was a buffet style spread with the usual cold meats, cheese and pastries that you normally find in Italy, with fantastic espresso and cappuccino on tap. Don't try asking for a latte as I think it translates to milk! There was a board with the evenings set meals on it, again in Italian, but when you are on holiday in Italy what can you expect. All the food was delicious and varied over the week we were there, with excellent table wine.

We found loads to do in Puglia but renting a car was a must. Didn't find many touristy things to do in Rutigliano but had dinner there twice and that was fine for us. Bari, Alberobello, Trani and Polignao a Mere are all within an hours drive and packed with loads of different things to do if you have a look for it.

One thing I would say is that the hosts were in no rush for us to pay which was fantastic, but when we tried to pay for the full stay on Friday night after dinner we found there was no one actually there bar the waiting staff who couldn't take a card payment. Seemed a bit odd but perhaps Giovanni is an older breed of exceptionally trusting hosts and that goes a long way for me! Ended up paying over the phone in the morning at the airport I hasten to add!

A lovely week spent lazing by the pool in the mornings, venturing out o different coastal towns in the afternoons and getting hammered on fantastic table wine in the evenings :)

Ciao Lama san Giorgio!

Room Tip: All the rooms by the pool seemed the same but ours was lovely!

All the staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful, as is the owner. (I’ve avoided using names because I don’t know the name of every member of staff and I don’t want to appear to single out or omit anyone.) There were seven young children in our party. As every parent knows, they can be fussy eaters. The chef and waiter collaborated to provide simple pasta dishes that they would enjoy. The food for people past their childhood is delicious. It is farm-fresh and of the highest quality. Much of it is sourced from the farm and is all prepared on the premises. The menu for the evening meal is carefully planned, with a progression of (usually four) complementary and seasonal items. Unlimited local wine and bottled water accompany the evening meals.
The rooms in the original masseria are spacious and attractively furnished. Some members of our party who wanted more space stayed in the new apartments. They are more luxurious, especially the bathrooms, but I preferred the atmosphere of the original masseria.
The location, southwest of Bari, is ideal. Bari is a transportation hub easily reached by train or aeroplane. I took a taxi from Bari at a cost of 40 euros, probable more than twice what it would have cost me to take a taxi from my hotel in Bari to the train station and then the train to Rutigliano, five to 10 minutes’ drive from the agriturismo. I was met there by one of the staff who drove me back to the agriturismo. The area around the agriturismo contains several attractive villages and towns that have intact mediaeval cores. I especially liked Cisternino, Trani and Polignano a Mare. After a day of sightseeing we enjoyed the modern and attractive swimming pool.

Room Tip: The top floor of the original masseria involves a lot of stairs. I believe that the new apartments a...

The place was selected based on the following criteria: 1) location to visit puglia 2) kids friendly 3) price. The agriturmismo is somehow well located if you want to visit part of puglia, however Rutigliano itself has nothing to offer. Plus, if you wish to stay by the pool, be prepared for a view on a local food factory "divella". The place is neither kids friendly for many reasons I) no food is served at lunch time, dinner is a set menu, so you basically got no choice. The place advertises itself as "didactic" with a farm, but I've never seen anything more miserable for animals. The playground for kids was so dirty and old that we didn't feel safe to let our kid play there (all rusty and broken). Despite the genuine staff, "managers" don't work on Sundays. So when we checked in and realized that the extra bed requested was not there, no one could help us.
Fun fact, when we decided to stay at the restaurant for dinner and asked for the check, the waiter nicely offered to sign it for us. He couldn't say how much we were going to be charged for that dinner. I could write a long list of things that didn't go well, bh
I guess the service reflects the price. Don't expect much by going there
