You are planning to take a trip to Puglia and you are wondering what Masserie of Puglia where to stay? Perhaps the most beautiful and characteristic? You are in the right place.
I have traveled this area from afar and always come back every summer based on Taranto, ancient capital of Magna Greciaand being a big lover of Apulian farmhouses, I can advise you where to find the most captivating and magical ones in this magnificent region.
But why are the farms of Puglia so famous all over the world? The Masserie Pugliesi are nothing more than rural buildings that were once (or perhaps still) used on an agricultural/industrial level.
The name comes from “household items“, That is, things for the house, tools or warehouses, which were kept inside these houses that were usually used by those who worked the land.
Usually these Apulian farmhouses also have towers as they once served to defend against the attack of the Moors.
Over the years the Masserie was then abandoned to be later converted into particular and characteristic accommodations directly from the area, in order to present the true culture of Puglia to tourists who can now enjoy these fantastic accommodations famous in the whole world. .
But which are the most beautiful farmhouses in Puglia? In this article, I present to you what I think is the most magical, authentic and fascinating part of Puglia.
