This little piece of Puglia is very dear to me. It’s located near Ceglie Messapica in the Valle D’itria and has been in Francesco’s and my heart for the past 10 years.
We have dreamed of converting it into many things. A beautiful home to welcome our family and friends where we would have an ecological vegetable garden, long table lunches under the olive trees and swing in hammocks at the end of the day.
Inspired by the beautiful Masserias such as Masseria Potenti and Masseria Ciminio, we dreamed of making this beauty come alive, keeping her beautiful organic shapes, adding a Mediterranean garden that wouldn’t need watering and giving her a lot of love and care.
My architect hubby who loves Mediterranean architecture spent many a long night planning her comeback and how it would be the kindest to the landscape around her as we wanted to respect her story and the surrounding lands. I fantasised about fairy lights in the olive trees, music and laughter and picking my own tomatoes.
But during the past 10 years, our lives have taken different directions. Hubby is now a naturopath as well as an architect and our travels take us all around the world. We have come to the realization that we need to pass on our dream to someone else who truly loves beautiful Puglia and wants to create something beautiful with this precious piece.
