A masseria is basically a fortified farmhouse. The main construction period for these farmhouses was during the 16th and 17th centuries. Sometimes they were occupied by the
owners themselves (usually a member of the aristocracy or bourgeoisie), but more
often than not by the farmworkers.
Getting married in a masseria is therefore a fascinating experience thanks to the unique atmosphere and the culture and traditions that are present. The masserias have all been restored and are now luxury hotels and villas offering countless options for weddings. For a more rustic wedding, it is possible to have the ceremony in the courtyard of the farmhouse. Or for a more traditional option, there is an intimate church. For a dazzling wedding ceremony, the rooftop terrace can be used offering spectacular views.
The success of the wedding reception is guaranteed thanks to the excellent food and wine of Puglia. The cuisine ranges from traditional Pugliese cooking to Italian fusion, creating interesting and high-quality options for the reception.
