WHAT IS AN APULIAN MASSERIA? ?
Apulian masseria can be found literally everywhere in Puglia. These historical properties date back to the 16th and 17th centuries. They used to serve as residences for an entire community. Some even date back to the 10th century. These white stone mansions were at that time the landlords' mansion. The owners developed vegetables and cereals farming, livestock breeding and even the conservation of precious food items such as salt. These properties are now used as hotels or reception rooms. Many masseria in Puglia have been renovated and are now authentic and luxurious properties of Southern Italy. Choosing to celebrate your wedding in an Apulian masseria means also choosing a place full of ancestral traditions and history.
