While Puglia was once an undiscovered setting on the southern Italian coastline, it is now recognised for its sparkling turquoise waters, ancient olive trees and array of welcoming hotels. And while it was formerly home to farmhouses that remained rustic and rural, it now has the addition of sophisticated new buildings, architectural delights and an energetic atmosphere that makes you never want to leave.
It will come as no surprise that it has recently established itself as one of the most sought-after settings to say, ‘I Do’. Over the years, the beloved farmhouses and residential areas have been sympathetically renovated and transformed into Masserias.
The equivalent of the luxurious villas that can be found across Italy, these properties range from five-star hotels to decadent spas – the perfect choice for any bride or groom.
