The Masseria Moon was built in the XVI century. It is located in short distance from the main airports of Brindisi and Bari.
It is surrounded by an extended estate overlooking the sea with many olive groves, over 800 years old, almond trees and carob trees. This tower, once used to be part of a line of defense of towers watching the invading Saracens, has been completely restored and transformed into a 5 star luxury country house.
The original chapel from 1730 is located in the main courtyard, it stills holding mass and is often used as pilgrimage destination for the fishermen living in the little coastal village of Savelletri. Next to the courtyard we find the “ortus conclusus” a big vegetable garden surrounded by fortified walls and watered by an ancient, ingenious stone channels system, using gravity force.
The old pigeon tower is located on the terrace. This was used to send messages during the wars.
A stunning olive mill, dating back to year 1000, occupies great part of the huge caves which has been also a shelter for the farmhouse sheep. Part of the cave has now been transformed into a wonderful wellness path.
This venue has 33 cozy rooms and suites, equipped with all the amenities you can desire!
A warmed outdoor pool, a golf course and a SPA are available for guests.
The Masseria’s beach club, daily connected by shuttles, can also be a wonderful wedding venue or an ideal place for a welcome dinner or brunch on the next day.
This dreamy location is the ideal Masseria wedding venue for happy couples looking for a charming and exclusive wedding in Puglia with a truly historical feeling and a “sagra di paese” (typical Apulian country feast with hay bales, flames and hundreds of fairy lights in the main square of the Masseria) with show-cooking of typical specialties like pasta, mozzarella cheese, pizza and panzerotti. The local “Taranta” dancers will make all your guests dance until late night!
If you love the idea of a wedding by the water, the private beach club with restaurant will be the perfect place where organize your unforgettable ceremony and reception.
