Wedding in a Masseria
A Masseria is the traditional Apulian farmhouse, once the property of the aristocrat families of Puglia. These farmhouses usually are built like fortified properties, made of several buildings organized around a courtyard. Many of these houses have been carefully restored and transformed into five-star hotels and impressive elegant manors. The whitewashed walls create a strong contrast with the blue sky, the house is surrounded by olive groves or Mediterranean scrub.
Masserias are fabulous venues for a wedding in Puglia: most of them allow to have a wedding ceremony and banquet at the same place and can accommodate your guests for a true family celebration. Just imagine your ceremony outdoors under the bluest sky or in an intimate frescoed chapel, followed by a wedding cocktail with locally grown wine and an al fresco dinner among the olive trees with the delicious Apulian cuisine. I have selected for you the finest Masserias.
This enchanting Masseria, only twenty minutes’ drive from the Mediterranean, can host intimate or large wedding parties for up to 150 people. Events are allowed when the Masseria is taken exclusively for a minimum of 3 nights.

This luxury property dating back to the 16th century is ideal for wedding receptions with 100 – 120 people, outdoors among centuries old olive trees or in the three restaurants of the estate: one is located in the old vaulted stables, one by the pool, and one by their private Beach Club which is just a few minutes’ drive.
