This masseria in Savelletri is a popular venue for a Puglia wedding, mainly because of its location near the Adriatic coast. The building itself is whitewashed and is surrounded by olive groves that are hundreds of years old, making for a unique ambience other wedding venues don’t have. When the venue was built in the 15th century the Knights of Malta made it their watch tower. Since then it has been restored and turned into a luxury resort meant to preserve the region’s history for posterity. Both Mediterranean and Eastern cultures play a huge part in the ambience and décor of this resort.
One of the unique aspects of this resort as a wedding venue is that it can provide the feeling of a small intimate wedding with all the resources a large wedding would require, making it the best of both worlds for many couples. Since the resort’s beaches are so stunningly beautiful most couples choose to have their wedding on the beach as opposed to indoors. The resort boasts two beaches suited for weddings; the La Fonte Beach and the San Domenico A Mare Beach.
The La Fonte beach is a small public beach that includes a bar and plenty of seating and protection from the sun. The San Domenica A Mare Beach is open only to guests of the resort, including couples marrying there, along with their wedding guests. Located on this beach are a lounge as well as a bar and restaurant, making it the ideal choice for larger weddings. Couples and their guests have a few choices when it comes to restaurants at the resort. They will be able to dine on authentic Puglia dishes or other types of cuisine. Locally grown produce and wines add to every wedding reception held here.
