"Time and silence are the most luxurious things today"
Apulia or Puglia, as we call it in Italian, is one of the Italian region we love the most. Scattered across the area are robust masserie – historic, fortified farm estates built in chunky limestone, painted brilliant white. Architecturally, they are fabulously exotic places where Greek, Moorish and Spanish influences bear witness to Puglia’s eclectic past.
In this narrow strip of land between two seas, the scent of the maquis, the stone walls, the ancient olive trees, the white lime that covers ancient farms and small villages create the perfect setting for those in search of bliss.
It’s not unusual for tourism boards and the travel press to grasp at analogies that bring to mind more familiar destinations as a way to drive traffic to “undiscovered gems.” But comparing Puglia to anywhere else does it a disservice.That’s how I dug into plates of orecchiette with broccoli rabe and fava bean curd with chicory, dishes that clearly were born out of tough times and taste like the surrounding countryside.
Usually the masseria is the most popular option for those who choose to get married in Apulia.
