Six Masserie in the Apulian Countryside
Take a tour of southern Italy's traditional farmhouses: the Masserie. Nestled in the thriving Mediterranean countryside and immersed in olive groves, they are extraordinary witnesses of Apulia's history and tradition. Brimming with beauty and warm hospitality, these rural locations offer an authentic Apulian experience.
Spending your time in the exclusive privacy of the suites obtained from the old sheepfolds is an amazing experience. All of which include a characteristic private garden, where, upon request, a romantic dinner can be served. Here, one can enjoy moments of intimate relaxation in the wellness centre or in the private swimming pool located in the Mediterranean garden, read a book in the shade of a fig tree or be massaged in the oasis of prickly pears.
With an almost metaphysical structure, the designer Andrew Trotter and owner Carlo Lanzini envisioned an innovative architecture that wouldn't feel out of place in the stunning setting: the clean, sharp lines of the Masseria are today immediately recognizable and have become a staple of the Ostuni region, but are nevertheless perfectly blended in the surroundings.
At the origin of Alessia Perrucci’s vineyard hotel Masseria le Fabriche was a simple idea to combine winemaking and hospitality.The estate called Le Fabriche covers about 20 hectares of grapevines, centuries-old olive trees and Mediterranean Maquis. From the panoramic position of the “Serre Tarantine”, the 17th century farmhouse, the Masseria, overlooks this rural amphitheater designed by nature and by men over the centuries. The Masseria offers stunning views of the Ionian sea which is only 4 km far.
The Fabriche project starts at the end of the nineties, with the aim of using local grapes to produce quality wine within an environmentally responsible framework. Organic farming and close collaboration with the best agronomists and winemakers are part of this practice.
