Apulia, or Puglia in Italian, is a beautiful region. In fact it is famous worldwide for many iconic highlights. With more than 800 kms of stunning coastline, dotted with some of Italy’s most beautiful beaches, you can see why people would want to have their wedding in Puglia. The unique landscapes fulfilled of olive tree fields meet the sea in an harmonic composition. In this lovely setting you can find welcoming Masserie that can be the perfect venue for your wedding in Puglia.
See below my pick of the top 5 wedding venues in Puglia.
Masseria Torre Coccaro is an ancient and elegant venue located on a large estate overlooking the sea where there are two private beach clubs. The 17th century fortified tower was built by the Knights of Malta in order to protect themselves from invasion. The tower offers stunning views of the sea and sunsets. Perfect for your wedding.
Your ceremony can be held in the gorgeous garden underneath the carob trees. Next you will enjoy a vast aperitif in the ancient Piazza under the old tower and next to the ancient chapel dating back to 1730. It will be like a real village feast with live stations of chefs and music under a sky of lights. There is a marquee where the wedding breakfast will be held with a special ending for the cake cutting in the courtyard; surrounded by the fortified walls covered with pretty bougainvillea. You can then party the night away in the cave like olive mill.
If you prefer to have a beach ceremony, then this is possible at one of the private beach clubs; otherwise you could host your pre/post wedding event by the sea. There are many options for your wedding at Masseria Torre Coccaro.
Built in Puglia, in the area of Fasano, in 1800 by the Noble Palmieri, as a country residence, La Residenza has been recently renovated and totally refurnished to the highest standards of luxury, taking into account the needs of a demanding clientele, requiring a peaceful and rural holiday without renouncing their everyday comforts. The Villa offers 5 suites set on two floors, with panoramic terraces and a large swimming pool. Furnished with very high-quality furniture, carefully placed to create a warm and comfortable atmosphere. The villa is complemented by a beautiful setting overlooking 8 hectares of olive trees as far as the eye can see towards the sea. The villa also boasts a shaded outdoor gym with Technogym equipment, its own garden where fruit and vegetables are cultivated, offering guests a chance to experience zero-kilometer cuisine; two ‘al fresco’ dining areas; and complimentary access to a hybrid Lexus jeep for 5 passengers.
Every corner of the property is yours to enjoy and explore. Celebrate in the sprawling green gardens or in the groves of ancient olive trees, welcome guests to the Masseria and invite them to enjoy an aperitif in the courtyard or a stunning sunset views from the roof terrace, experience a gala dinner under the stars, followed by an open bar.
Guests staying at the Masseria will also have private access to Pettolecchia Il Lido, Puglia’s most exclusive beach club.
This fortified masseria is set in one of the most beautiful and sun-drenched regions of the Italian Mediterranean. The estate was built in the 15th century as an agricultural structure designated specifically to the production of olive oil. The fortress has played host to the many people who have dominated the region – Romans, Byzanite, Lombardic, Saracen.
Today, the fortress is undergoing careful restoration to its former glory and will become an exclusive hub for cultural-social events and weddings. This should be ready by early 2022.
Your wedding of up to 250 guests can be celebrated outside in the courtyard overlooking the fortress, or in case of bad weather inside the tower or the Ancient Old Mill.
