The Masseria in Puglia are small jewels immersed in the countryside and surrounded by land, olive groves and vineyards. By now some are no longer in use but many have been renovated by private individuals to form small oases of well-being and relaxation in the warm peace of the Apulian sun.

The farms are fortified rural buildings with eighteenth-century towers and fantastic circular dovecotes. The Masseria was born for the need, on the part of the massacre or the manager of the land and the property, to protect the property and the workers who managed it from attacks by marauders. Inside the farm there were not only the farmer's home but also that of all his collaborators.

Masseria Puglia: what was done in the farms in Puglia

In the farms, daily life took place and we all lived together.

In the farm we slept, we ate, the peasants worked the wheat, worked the oil and pressed the grapes to produce wine.

The Apulian farms were like small oases between expanses of land.

Masseria Puglia: the fortified farms

Some Apulian farms have been fortified to defend themselves from attacks and raids by marauders.

Other Apulian farms instead were hunting reserves of the lords of the time, such as Frederick II of Swabia.

Inside the Masserie used as hunting grounds there was often the tower to manage hunting weapons and hawks, or to keep their soldiers available and nearby.

In the farms there is everything necessary to allow the community to carry out all the daily activities.

The farms in Puglia usually contain other structures such as a small church, stables, feeders for animals and small dormitories dedicated to staff.

The Apulian farms naturally contained within them also the palace of the farmer.

In practice, the Masserie were fortified buildings with large rooms, with beautiful immense fireplaces and star-shaped ceilings of unsurpassed beauty thanks to the Lecce stone and the local tuff used for the buildings.

There are farms transformed into agritourism farms transformed into a skier there and still others transformed into simple bed and breakfasts where, however, you can savor the sea breeze and the warm sun of Puglia.
