Masseria: The Italian Farmhouses of Puglia

Julie Carlson January 17, 2013

Is Puglia the new Tuscany (and not just because Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel staged a wedding celebration there recently)? After paging through Rizzoli's "Masseria: The Italian Farmhouses of Puglia," we're beginning to think so.

The houses of Puglia, called "masseria," are fortified structures of brick, stone, and concrete dating from the Middle Ages and surrounded by verdant vineyards and groves of olive trees; many have been renovated to serve as private residences or boutique hotels (see Paradise in Puglia: Pensione to the Stars). You can admire the local architecture in Masseria: The Italian Farmhouses of Puglia (Rizzoli).
