The Italian Destination Wedding Show is just around the corner and we cannot wait for you to meet us and all our wonderful exhibitors!
We continue our series of blogs today by presenting to you Tenuta Monacelle and Masseria San Nicola, two ancient mansions amongst the most beautiful in Puglia.
Both are situated in the gentle hills of the Selva di Fasano, overlooking the transparent Adriatic sea and surrounded by cherry trees, oaks and olive groves. The estate extends over twenty hectares of land, an oasis in the heart of the Itria Valley where everything is authentic and timeless. A true treat for you and your guest.
Tenuta Monacelle is an ancient village of trulli, traditional houses dating back to 1790, which was a monastery of Benedectine Sisters. A dream come true…low stone walls, white pinnacles, for you to experience the authentic Puglia.
Tenuta Monacelle offers seven trulli, each of them unique, furnished in traditional style, with every comfort. For you and your wedding guests it will be like waking up in a fairytale.
Not too far from the trulli village you can find Masseria San Nicola, a building realised in “tufo”, a traditional building material used in ancient times in this region. Masseria San Nicola was Prince Carbonelli residence back in 1600. Surrounded by hundred years old olive groves and “tratturi”, it consists of a central building and four masserias and exudes the essence of agricultural Puglia. Rich in glorious colours and amazing scents, from the Bouganville to the citrus trees, aromatic plants and the scented roses.
Masseria San Nicola is decorated in contemporary design and without excess, in perfect agreement with the traditional architecture. The suites are equipped with a jacuzzi in the bathrooms, ideal for relaxing before the wedding in total privacy.
The restaurant Il Ciliegeto, situated in the Trulli village, offers a great variety of choices for your wedding menu, from traditional to more modern dishes, in an elegant and refined athmosphere, using only fresh local products. You will be able to enjoy your wedding reception in the restaurants’ 4 halls, or why not, on the terrace, with beautiful views. A sommelier is avaliable to guide you through the prestigious selection of wines, to ensure everything will be just perceft on your wedding day.
If you are looking for a more informal reception, why not heading to the Pizzeria la Piazzetta, open from May to September.
